Bring Your Own App: The 10 best apps to keep Marketing Executives one step ahead

Bring your own app to work to improve the organisation of your working day.

As a Marketing Executive, your working life is often busy and demanding, organisational skills are paramount to your role. However sorting out your day, compiling your to-do lists and ensuring you’ve sent important emails no longer needs to be a time consuming task when you bring your own app to work.


Having so many tools at your fingertips it would be rude not to download the apps that will make your working day easier and help you shine like the marketing star you are. Here are ten apps that will keep you productive, whether they work as time savers or as marketing tools.

Wunderlist 

A deceptively simple do-list that works across mobile and desktop platforms. Divide your lists into categories, add notes, share and collaborate.


Sunrise

A diarising app that takes a feed from Wunderlist so you never forget when your tasks are due. It also sends invites for meetings – the clever bit being that it checks the email address of the invitees and pulls together their social networking profiles so you get a mini-briefing about who you’re seeing or calling.

Nimble

By bringing your own app to work, Nimble puts client management in your pocket. It’s easy to use and helps you to keep track of progress, project milestones and upcoming deadlines.

Trello

This app is ideal in assisting beginners with project management. You can set up lists of projects, divide them into steps and drag them around the screen to put them into different categories – so, divide projects into “pitched, accepted, begun...” Again, this one is cross-platform.

Wordpress

This enables you to put a blog up on the move, providing thought leadership and contribution even during your busiest day.

Plagspotter

Bring your own app to work to ensure that the marketing content you are producing hasn’t been plagiarised by other companies. This will ensure you are always offering original content.

Sliderocket 

Build presentations on the move and remain productive during your commute to work or between meetings. Use this only after you’ve checked the mobile versions of Microsoft Office, which is quickly leaving the third party apps behind.

Hootsuite

A cross-platform app that lets you manage numerous social media networks, and schedule posts, from one device.

Analyticspro2

Allows you to get in-depth analytics, compare data sets, and isolate and segment data all in real time from your mobile device.

Evernote

A note-taking app that works across multiple platforms – but the Pro version will work as a presentation tool in its own right, and it will collect prospects’ and contacts’ information for you.

Bringing your own app to work will give you more control over your working day, offering organisational opportunities and a way to control and manage your time while generating marketing results.

Takeaways

  • Bringing your own app to work can increase productivity.
  • Apps are an excellent way of keeping an organised structure throughout your working day.
  • Marketing executives can bring their own apps to work to keep one step ahead in projects.
