36 Apps for Marketers and Entrepreneurs in 2018

What apps do you use on a daily or near-daily basis? I may be the only marketer that doesn’t read any news or check their social media. Halfway through reading the book The 4-Hour Work Week by Tim Ferriss, I deleted 80% of all the apps on my smartphone. I immediately saw my return-on-investment. It turns out I was spending hours wasting time on my phone.

That said, here are some apps that I still use on a daily or near-daily basis. They are all free.

TL;DR:

 

Simplify your writing.

Hemingway App: One of the most useful free writing tools available. I use it to automate my editing process, from hard to read sentences to whether you’re using active voice or passive voice. It’s easy to use and makes your writing cleaner.

Google Docs: The whole Google suite can be used to keep track of everything from content planning to marketing campaigns. This is also a great choice for those of you who like using voice-to-text features.

Evernote: Evernote really is like a second brain. It’s great for taking notes, especially during meetings. You can take pictures of slides or presenters and jot down notes from commentary around the room.

Grammarly: This is another useful tool that acts as an instant grammar checker. It proofreads for errors in grammar, sentence structure, and it even checks for plagiarism and proposes edits to improve your writing.

Headline Analyzer: If you’re writing blogs or email subject lines, this tools rates the quality of your headline and gives you ideas on how to make it better. Funny enough, this post’s title doesn’t rank too well. Need to use this more often.

Write or Die: If you need a little motivation, this writing tools will keep you going. I use it for milestones. If I miss my writing goals, it’ll actually “punish” me. Try it out for yourself.

 

Get organized.

Folders: Okay, this one’s not really an app. But seriously, using folders function on your desktop, mail app, etc., is one of the easiest ways to stay organized in the digital age.

Boomerang: Automate all kinds of email operations like follow-ups, reminders, and scheduling. It also has a cool feature that lets you track when your email is being read.

Clearbit: Use this app to find any email in under five seconds.

YNAB: Aside from an excel spreadsheet, this is the easiest app I’ve used for budgeting.

Stickies: Post-it notes on your laptop.

Coach Me: Self-explanatory, this app keeps you accountable. Set daily check-in reminders and join habit challenges with others.

1Password: This is the password manager I trust, a virtual vault locked with a PBKDF2-guarded master password.

 

Boost productivity.

RescueTime: Helps you understand your daily habits so you can be more productive and less busy.

Forest: Train yourself to put your phone down and stay focused by playing this game. It works.

Captio: Easy notes tool that automatically sends whatever you write directly to your email.

Doodle: Schedule meeting invites for free. Also, use Calendly.

Launch Center: Cut down any complex smartphone task into one tap. Here are some things you can do with one tap: send a message instantly to a number of people; search apps for key terms; instantly send photos; etc.

Momentum: Useful Chrome plugin that starts a to-do list for you in a new tab.

Things: Easy to use to-do list app that keeps you accountable.

Email Game: Gamify’s your email. You get two minutes to read each email, but you can customize it.

 

Simplify your reading.

Audible: Largest audiobook collection available. Great for catching up on content when you’re busy driving or working out. I especially love to listen to audiobooks while I’m cooking or hiking.

Blinkist: The Cliff’s Notes of non-fiction. Find nearly any title summarized down to about seven bullet points, or 15-minute audio blinks, whichever you prefer.

Spreeder: Speed reading app that lets you drop in content from over 46 file types. I use it to prepare for meetings and big presentations.

 

Track your results.

Website Grader: Free tool that grades your website’s performance, SEO, and security.

Google Analytics: Easiest way to monitor website traffic.

 

Simplify your research.

Think With Google: The latest marketing research and digital trends, curated by Google along with original data reports, guides, infographics, and articles.

Survey Monkey: Free survey and quiz software.

SocialBlade: Get in-depth analytics and insights on YouTube channels, as well as other platforms.

Trendwatching: Great tool for tracking global consumer trends and insights across more than 180 countries.

Buzzsumo: Search engine that lets you find the most shared links and key influencers on any topic.

Google Trends: Another free Google tool… find out how often a search term is being used around the world.

 

Simplify your content.

Canva: Imagine Photoshop for dummies. This app has a bunch of pre-loaded layouts for just about any type of creative.

Teleprompter: Never memorize another script again. Use this website as a teleprompter when using your webcam.

Clipomatic: Lets you add subtitles to your videos.

 

Simplify your health.

Headspace: Guided meditation to keep you zen when you’re on-the-go.

MyFitnessPal: This one isn’t really a marketing/entrepreneur app, but I use it to keep track of my meals and make sure I’m eating a healthy diet when I’m eating out with clients (or the significant other).

  6. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God.

    Biblical prophecy tells us that this Jewish Messiah who will take the stage will be the antichrist “who opposes and exalts himself above all that is called God or that is worshiped, so that he sits as God in the temple of God, showing himself that he is God” (2 Thessalonians 2:4). For a time he will bring about a false peace, but “Therefore when you see the ‘abomination of desolation,’ spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the holy place (Matthew 24:15)…then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been since the beginning of the world until this time, no, nor ever shall be” (Matthew 24:21).

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it. Revelation 13:11-18 tells us that a false prophet will arise on the world scene doing miracles before men, deceiving them to receive this Mark. Do not be deceived! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! This is forever…God bless!

    “EITHER HUMAN INTELLIGENCE ULTIMATELY OWES ITS ORIGIN TO MINDLESS MATTER OR THERE IS A CREATOR…” – JOHN LENNOX

    We all know God exists. Why? Because without Him, we couldn’t prove anything at all. Do we live our lives as if we cannot know anything? No. So why is God necessary? In order to know anything for certain, you would have to know everything, or have revelation from somebody who does. Who is capable of knowing everything? God. So to know anything, you would have to be God, or know God.

    A worldview without God cannot account for the uniformity and intelligibility of nature. And why is it that we can even reason that God is the best explanation for this if there is no God? We are given reason to know or reject God, but never to know that He does not exist.

    It has been calculated by Roger Penrose that the odds of the initial conditions for the big bang to produce the universe that we see to be a number so big, that we could put a zero on every particle in the universe, and even that would not be enough to use every zero. What are the odds that God created the universe? Odds are no such thing. Who of you would gamble your life on one coin flip?

    Is there evidence that the Bible is the truth? Yes. Did you know that the creation accounts listed in the book of Genesis are not only all correct, but are also in the correct chronological order? That the Bible doesn’t say the Earth was formed in six 24-hour days but rather six long but finite periods of time? That the Bible makes 10 times more creation claims than all major “holy” books combined with no contradictions, while these other books have errors in them? The Bible stood alone by concurring with the big bang saying, “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth” (Genesis 1:1); and says our universe is expanding, thousands of years before scientists discovered these things. Watch a potential life-changing video on the website listed below with Astronomer(PhD) Hugh Ross explaining all these facts based on published scientific data. He has authored many books, backed even by atheist scientists.

    Jesus came to pay a debt that we could not; to be our legal justifier to reconcile us back to a Holy God; only if we are willing to receive Him: “For the wages of sin is death…” (Romans 6:23).

    God so loved the world that He gave us His only begotten son, so that whoever believes in Him, through faith, shall not perish, but have everlasting life. Jesus says if we wish to enter into life to keep the commands! The two greatest commands are to love God with all your heart, soul, strength, and mind; and your neighbor as yourself. All the law hang on these commands. We must be born of and lead by the Holy Spirit, to be called children of God, to inherit the kingdom. If we are willing to humble ourselves in prayer to Jesus, to confess and forsake our sins, He is willing to give the Holy Spirit to those who keep asking of Him; giving us a new heart, leading us into all truth!

    Jesus came to free us from the bondage of sin. The everlasting fire was prepared for the devil and his angels due to disobedience to God’s law. If we do the same, what makes us any different than the devil? Jesus says unless we repent, we shall perish. For sin is the transgression of the law. We must walk in the Spirit so we may not fulfill the lusts of the flesh, being hatred, fornication, drunkenness and the like. Whoever practices such things will not inherit the kingdom (Galatians 5:16-26). If we sin, we may come before Jesus to ask for forgiveness (1 John 2:1-2). Evil thoughts are not sins, but rather temptations. It is not until these thoughts conceive and give birth by our own desires that they become sin (James 1:12-15). When we sin, we become in the likeness of the devil’s image, for he who sins is of the devil (1 John 3:8); but if we obey Jesus, in the image of God. For without holiness, we shall not see the Lord (Hebrews 12:14).

    The oldest religion in the world is holiness through faith (James 1:27). What religion did Adam and Eve follow before the fall? Jesus, Who became the last Adam, what religion does He follow? Is He not holy? He never told us to follow the rituals and traditions of man but to take up our cross and follow Him (Luke 9:23). There are many false doctrines being taught leading people astray. This is why we need the Holy Spirit for discernment. Unlike religion, holiness cannot be created. It is given to us from above by the baptism of the Spirit. Jesus is more than a religion; He is about having a personal relationship with the Father. Start by reading the Gospel of Matthew, to hear the words of God, to know His character and commandments. Follow and obey Jesus, for He is the way, the truth, and the life!

  21. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.
