Are you one of those freelance writers who is always short on time, scrambles to get stuff done, and lives in a constant state of procrastination? It happens. Shiny Object Syndrome is a real thing when you’re sitting in front of a computer all day. There’s email, social channels, your favorite blogs and websites, the latest gaming craze called Fortnite, and much more to distract you from getting work done. Sound familiar? In the perfect world, you spend all your working hours writing for clients, marketing your services, and making lots of money. But it doesn’t always work like that. Right? Fortunately, the Internet’s abyss of never-ending distractions is also a great place to find apps to help you work smarter, get organized, and be more productive. As a freelance technology writer, I’ve tested and used a long list of Chrome apps to boost my own productivity, and ultimately make more money. And so can you. Check out these 10 time-saving apps to help you move up and earn more: Google Chrome: Productivity for freelance writers You probably already know a lot about Google Chrome, like the ability to preview a URL destination before clicking on it, and being able to log in to different Google accounts in different windows. But how much do you know about Chrome browser extensions? There’s an entire category of extensions or apps that can help you be more productive and model the behaviors of other successful freelance writers. Tech solutions to manage distractions When I’m working from home – whether by choice or out of necessity – there’s inevitably more distractions (in the form of three small children) than in the office. I use productivity extensions like a Pomodoro timer (Strict Workflow is one) to timebox myself on certain tasks, and the Todoist extension to project manage my team back in the office. And those are just two Chrome extensions you can use to stay productive out of the office. There are hundreds if you check the “productivity” category of the Chrome Web Store. The best freelance writers know how to manage their time well. But…

How to Make Money with Your Smartphone

14 Entrepreneurs Share Their Favorite Time-Saving Tech Tools

What time-saving technology would you recommend to any entrepreneur? These answers are provided by Young Entrepreneur Council (YEC), an invite-only organization comprised of the world’s most promising young entrepreneurs. YEC has also launched BusinessCollective, a free virtual mentorship program that helps millions of entrepreneurs start and grow businesses. 1. Zapier + IFTTT With Zapier, I have moved my to-do list from my inbox. Email is meant for communication, but far too often it winds up as a to-do list. Every time I star an email, I have it run through Zapier and add to a to-do backlog. When I have a new meeting scheduled, Zapier adds it to my to-do list for tomorrow, 24 hours in advance. This helps me use one to-do list that is built from multiple technologies. – Michael Averto, ChannelApe 2. Asana The best project management software and app that any entrepreneur can use is Asana. This robust program helps track projects from start to finish, manage to-do lists and comprehensive workflows, see the project progress, and enable team collaborations. – Kristin Marquet, Creative Development Agency, LLC 3. Wake-Up Light/Alarm Time-saving is all about increasing productivity. My best work comes early in the day. I used to have a hard time waking up in the morning until I started to use a light-alarm clock that uses progressively increasing light to gently wake you up by replicating sunlight. This makes getting up at 5 a.m. feel more natural and refreshing and makes my whole day productive. – Sam Miller, Boston Biomotion 4. Chatbots Setting up chatbots and automation scripts can significantly reduce the amount of time spent answering repetitive questions. By data-mining your customer service emails, you can identify the types of questions that most often come up. Automate these responses, both internal and external, to save money and time. – Marcela De Vivo, Mulligan Funding 5. Trello For most professionals, email can be overwhelming. In a typical email thread, most participants hit ‘reply all’ as a courtesy even when conversations stray off-topic. In Trello, I’m looped in only when someone decides to mention me directly. This helps minimize the sheer volume of messages and notifications everyone on the team receives, allowing us all to reclaim hours of productivity each…
