When we're working as solopreneurs, there's a lot that needs to get done in a small amount of time. That's why it's so essential to have tools that make our lives easier. I found this article on Entrepreneur with a cool list of 14 tools that we can use and many of them I had never heard of before. Some of them have free versions too. I do believe in investing in certain tools that really save us time though when it's going to make a difference in the bottom line.

    Hey Eren!

    Great list of awesome tools! I see several that I'm already using and one in particular that I am really interested in, Shake. I just sent my first Contract out for electronic signature last night and loved the idea. I waiting on a response from my Client on the ease of using it from her end! Thank for sharing these with us. I bookmarked a few for further research. :)

    Hi Eren,

    WiseStamp is a fab app for any budding or established solopreneur. What an easy way to make an impact as you sign off from any email. I have used it in the past and loved it. Great tool for leaving a positive impression - and list or business building - any time you send out an email. Principle of leveraging at play here ;)

    Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Eren,
    Nice share!
    I love how we have so many tools around to lessen our work and empower our solopreneur journey.
    I love the way wisetamp helps in branding and adding links in email signatures.

    Grammarly is also a great tool to help write better English and correct, professional copy.
    I am yet to try assistant.io.

    Hey Eren,

    The tools like Evernote are new to me. People are focusing on email marketing which would require a tool like GetRespnse for sure.
    Grammar mistakes annoy the readers and Grammarly is always there.

    WiseStamp can help you in branding.

    Hi Eren,
    These are wonderful tools for solopreneurs....I have used a few of them myself over the years. I love the ones that give you the free trial to check them out first before having to pay for the services. Adobe Spark is one I haven't heard of and may check out. I appreciate you sharing these with us?

    Hey Eren and Lucinda,

    Great list of tools here. I use Evernote quite a bit. Especially for the fact I can write down ideas of future blog posts. I've also heard of Wisestamp and this is a reminder of look more into it. Thanks for sharing these tools!

    This is a great list. I have heard of only a few of these tools - Grammarly, GetResponse, HooteSuite, Evernote.

    I might have to look at Adobe Spark. I'm thinking about making videos this year to help promote my freelancing writing and editing business as well as my books!

    Good list, I've used quite a few of them. For solopreneurs tools should be a top priority since they can really cut down the amount of time working on tasks without having to spend (usually much more money) to hire an employee, as well as all the headaches that can come with that.

    Obviously there's times for that to happen but people underestimate the value the right tools can provide.

    Thanks Eren

    As solopreneurs we all need to save time! And save money so a list of tools that saves money and time is great.

    I use GetResponse (have upgraded for a very low fee) and really love it.

    WiseStamp / WiseIntro I have heard recommended a lot, but not got round to trying them yet.

    Taking online payments with Shake looks very reasonable too for those of us who don't want to have a monthly fee.

    Hi Eren,
    Like many people here I've heard of many of these tools, but not all of them. I am most curious about Adobe Spark. I'm always looking for ways to improve my blog graphics. Thanks for letting us know about it.
