As an ecommerce business owner, a majority of your profession relies on your phone to source and market your product, as well as interact with your customers.

With Hootsuite, you can access all of your ecommerce business’s social media accounts in one app. It’s the perfect tool to save time by planning ahead your social media posts on an easy to use app. Setting up a content calendar for your business’s social media platforms is the best way to keep your brand image consistent.

I work for a real estate office and was having to make one ad and the copy/paste it to all platforms and it was time consuming to try to remember each day to schedule an advertisement or announcement. Hootsuite has saved me so much time by streamlining the process for me. I can able to schedule weeks in advance and not have to worry about it. Each ad posts per schedule and I really like the weekly reports showing us the which ads, times and content perform the best so we can adjust accordingly.”

Evernote is the perfect organization app when it comes to keeping all of your notes and documents together. Whether you need to build a list for possible product ideas, or keep track of the different tasks that need to be completed for your store, this is an incredibly useful app to have on your phone. It works seamlessly with a desktop version so you can keep track of everything you need wherever you are. 

I find Evernote to be a very useful tool for organizing large projects. I use it for a variety of work projects and also for a novel I am writing. I can open the app and jot down a quick thought and it seamlessly syncs with my desktop version. You can add links, photos, and tables, etc. I also love the new templates.”
