Let's talk social analytics!
If you travel really far back to the times when you were in grade school, you may remember “Genius Hour” of “Passion Projects,” a designated time for students to explore their curiosities and interests to their fullest. The nostalgia of free time… isn’t it great that children actually have time to explore their passions?
Organize Your Life
As someone in the communications field it is our job to source the best fit person to represent each brand and well what is trending and what talking about what. It could either take us hours of research to find the perfect fit or simply have a social media analytics app that does it all. Here is our top 3 favourite data tracking apps.
Networking can be fun!
No matter if you’re a part-time freelancer or a full-time one you need tools and apps that are going to help you stay organized. I’m the type of person that can remember a million things off the top of my head but these apps definitely help. I have shared my top favourite time tracking, task management, invoicing, accounting, and contract apps below and why I love them! Oh yeah I forgot to mention they’re all FREE!
Networking has always been hard for us (surprisingly). But, it's how we build connections and found clients. It's a tool that will always come in handy!
These questions always pop into our mind:
"oh... should I introduce myself now?"
"Shit... I only brought 4 business cards and one went into the lucky draw!"
"Ugh.. how do I leave this convo without making it awkward."
