Today I point out a very cool task management system that not only makes handling all of your project a breeze, but it integrates with sites like Evernote, Dropbox, and Google Calendar. Here is where things get cool. You can have multiple tasks added by sending ONE email to a special email address assigned to your account. All you do is separate the tasks with a period. So it might be
.bring home milk
.text wife a loving message
.call you mother
and all those three items would be turned into separate tasks.
Nozbe can be used by anyone – you’ll see only the features you’ll need. Nothing more. Simple, uncluttered to-do list if you need it to be. And free up to 5 projects! If you need more, it’s only $8 and up.
Patreon.com The Never Ending Kickstarter
Patreon is a cool way to boost crowd funding. You can get paid on a monthly basis, or you can get paid when you release content. There are people making some pretty decent cash. You can specify different rewards for different donation amounts. These can be serious or comical. I was amazed at some of the amounts that people are pulling in. They take 8% of the donation and you get paid via paypal (I’m not sure if you have to pay paypal fees).
My only complaint, is they force you to go to the patreon website.
Simply Measured is a cool website that has free reports to help you determine where your traffic is coming from. this video helps you understand (not sure why the audio is out of sync, its like a bad Godzilla movie). Check it out at www.simplymeasured.com
Simple Feed Stats is a free WordPress plugin that makes it easy to track your feeds, add custom content, and display your feed statistics on your site. Simple Feed Stats (SFS) tracks your feeds automatically, and provides a wealth of tools and options for further configuration and management.
When I tried this, feedburner say I have 866 subscribers. Simple Feed Stats says I have 78. Meanwhile I’m getting 1400 downloads per episode.
I just discovered Freshdesk. This is a SUPER EASY support system. It offers SO MUCH. I was looking for a basic FAQ program found this system that not only does FAQ, but it provides live chat, forums, satisfaction surveys and much much more. I looked into it. I saw they had a free version and I had it setup in less than 10 minutes. I love that they have mobile apps to help you stay in touch. Right now they have an android app, and a soon to be iOs app (they do have an html5 version). Prices are not based on the amount of users, but on what services you need. If you are a solopreneur you could get by with the free version.
I love that if someone mentions you or direct messages you, you can pull that into a system and determine if you’d like it to be a ticket or not. – very cool.
Likewise you can set up an app so your private support is on your facebook page.
It integrates with EVERYTHING so now you can not only track tickets but tie it in with your billing system (I LOVE THIS FEATURE).
The beauty of the system is it is hyper rich in features but they have a tone of documentation and videos to make sure you don’t get stuck.
