What is a productivity tool?
Productivity tools are basically software platforms or tools that can be used to work effectively and help save you time. These tools are built to help you plan better and keep on top of things.
Gone are the days of using paper hoping you’ve taken notes and scribbles of things you need to do. It’s time for us to claim back our time, streamline our businesses, work more efficiently and, most importantly, have time for other things in our lives again.
Whether you plan on using ClickUp, Notion or Trello having a good content management tool will set you up for success. I’ve tried so many tools available and found that Clickup works the best for me. You can add automation, lists and labels to save you even more time. Forgot that something needs to be done? Not to worry these apps allow you to add dates on when you need to receive a reminder. Using ClickUp has helped me be more productive in my blog planner. Best of all they all have free versions so you can test drive them.
So now that you have all this amazing content planned for your social media it’s time to add them to a scheduler. I find that Planoly works the best for me! It’s an intuitive app scheduler that allows you to post on Pinterest, Instagram and you can plan your Instagram stories ahead of time.
This is perfect for sharing blog posts, have a promotion to share on a specific day. Planning your content ahead of time gives you the freedom to focus on other aspects of your business, blog and life. You can easily content batch, choose one day in the week and plan your entire week’s content or even for an entire month!
You can save groups of hashtags within Planoly and add them to your posts with the click of a button. For example, I have a group of productivity-related hashtags, a group of blogging specific hashtags, a group for my favourite content creation hashtags and so on. Trust me when I tell you that this feature will save you so much time.
