Best Time Management Apps for a Digital Nomad
As a Digital Nomad, life is always on the go as new destinations, discoveries and life changing experiences await you. This all makes this lifestyle so desirable and oh-so exciting! You are literally able to work from any country that you please, in any setting that appeals to you!
Because of this adventure seeking lifestyle, you need to have a plan that will help you stay work focused-as this is the main reason why you are able to travel in the first place! In addition to that, being in various countries also means various time zones. So you will need to keep that in mind as you make your online meetings and schedule appointments with clients.
Here are some of the most awesome apps and websites that will help your time management side of your Digital Nomad life become so much easier.
Hootsuite is SO handy!
In order to really gain a following and awareness on your social media accounts, you need to have consistent content. This means that you may be posting 3-5 times PER day PER social media platform PER company you are doing SMO for-which is a ridiculous amount of work if you do it all at once!
Hootsuite enables you to schedule your social media posts so that you can do it in “batching”. For the love of god- you MUST batch your posts or else you will have NO spare time! Facebook also has a very handy scheduling feature that allows you to schedule your page posts as well. This is a digital nomad lifesaver!
Latergramme (Instagram scheduling app)
If you love posting travel pictures on your instagram as much as I do, you will LOVE Latergramme!
This app works a bit different than Hootsuite or the Facebook scheduling apps, so you will still need to be present when the post is scheduled to be published. Basically you select your photo, write your jazz and hashtags, schedule it for a specific time, then Latergramme will send you a push notification to publish the post at that time.
Time and Date.com
While working away in numerous different time zones, it can get extremely difficult to organize times for meetings and appointments.
Timeanddate.com will help you find the best time to schedule meetings across the entire world in different time zones with it’s meeting planner. It helps understand international dialing codes, has a time zone converter, sun and moon calenders, travel calendars and so much more!
Google is the most convenient, one stop shop for all your digital nomad needs!
Google Drive will help you save documents online, accessible from anywhere with your Gmail account. Google Hangouts lets you schedule meetings, chat with your mates, and sync your calendars together. Google spreadsheets is like a glorified Excel program, and Google Presentations is great for Powerpoints.
If you need to write invoices, Waveapps has got your back for FREE!
You can make numerous Invoices with many accounts and keep it looking very professional. Waveapps is targeted to help small businesses survive and thrive, so it’s a win win!
If you know email marketing, you probably already know about MailChimp. This is your savor for spreading awareness via email systems. Anything from E-commerce to blogging websites, MailChimp will help you create targeted email and ad campaigns to get your business booming!
These are just a few of the numerous Apps and Websites out there to help you manage your time so you can enjoy your digital nomadic lifestyle!
