10 Essential Productivity Tools

John Jantsch, at Duct Tape Marketing, offers another great resource:

10 Essential Small Business Productivity Tools: Online and offline utilities that make running your business easier.

Some we use; Some are new discoveries. We share them with you as another resource to help grow your organization.

Here's a few highlights:

RSS Feed Reader: Bloglines  ( I use Newsgator. But I've used bloglines in the past)

PDF Creation: PDF 995

Project Management: Basecamp from 37signals. We LOVE this product. There's a slight learning curve involved. It's learning a new habit, really. But it's a great way to manage projects with a group and all the associated timelines and to-do's while everyone is kept on the same page.

CRM Tool: ACT2006. One of our sales agents here uses ACT. He loves it.

List Management: AWeber. We use SubscriberMail. We like its easy use AND their personal attention. That's so important as you set up your newsletter and begin to gather data from your online mailing efforts.

File Sending. DropSend. We could likely use this one to upload large files and the service then notifies your recipient they have a file to download.

The entire list includes resources for Keyword Selection, Spelling and Grammar, Spam Blocking and Virus Protection. You can see the entire list and read John's thoughts on all the resources he offers.

You can also sign up for his newsletter.  He offers resources nearly every  week that you can put to immediate use to grow your organization AND they're usually affordable or FREE.

Thanks, John. May victories shower on the Kansas City Royals in the near future. A light drizzle would be a good start.
