Business Mobile Phone: Which Apps Should Your Business Be Using?
The more your business grows, the more plates you’re going to be juggling. We’ve discussed in depth the benefits of business mobile phones, but when it comes to taking your business on the go, there are far more ways to get ahead. We’re referring to business mobile phone apps, which can help to make your business more productive, and to make your life a whole lot easier.
There’s a wide range of business mobile phone apps, though. In today’s blog, we’ll be highlighting some of the most popular, and most efficient, applications for your business.
Business Mobile Phone App: Slack
Particularly ideal for businesses where employees are working from home (which is quite a few businesses, these days), Slack lets you separate your workflow into distinct channels. These channels essentially work as group chats. This makes it a great option if your company tends to have multiple different projects with differing teams, as there will be no confusion as to which channel is which. Employees can also message each other privately.
The one thing you need to be aware of with Slack is that when your free trial of the premium version runs out, your backlog of messages will only go so far. This limit will be increasingly noticeable as your team grows. So, if you don’t intend to pay for a subscription (which is, in fairness, priced rather reasonably), then make sure any important data is being saved elsewhere.
As long as you have a Google account tied to your business, you should have access to a great deal of data pertaining to your market. Reports tend to be easy to follow, even if you’re accessing them on your phone. You’ll be able to analyse and monitor a whole host of data, and one of the most helpful aspects of Google Analytics is the ability to see how your SEO is performing. SEO is a process, and Google Analytics is one of the first steps towards climbing those search rankings.
Business Mobile Phone App: Hootsuite
Businesses tend to be on multiple social media platforms these days. It’s one of the easiest ways for your customers to interact with you, after all. But with so many accounts, it’s easy to fall behind, and that’s where Hootsuite comes in. This business mobile phone app allows you to schedule posts ahead of time, across various forms of social media. These include Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, & more. You’ll also have access to helpful analytics, so you can see how your campaign is performing.
Trello is handy for a number of reasons, because it has a number of uses: project management, general organisation, task lists, and much more. You can arrange your projects across separate ‘cards’, and the simple user interface means that your whole team can see what you’re working on, assign you new tasks, and leave comments. It’s a very flexible platform, and mobile phone access makes it all the more effective.
