Some people collect figurines, put together train sets, or spend time on puzzles.

I investigate time-saving apps.

Finding new tools to save me time/improve workflow is a hobby of mine and makes me giddy.

Yes, I am that much of a nerd.

Good news for you, I did the research and you get to use the apps.

Here are 10 Tools to Save Time/Improve Workflow:

1. Facetune2

I was a fan of the original Facetune for turning my ordinary iPhone photos into professional looking images, but this new version is seven bazillion times better. You can still do the fancy things like whiten teeth, smooth out wrinkles, and improve coloring (not saying how I know this, of course) but you can do the same thing in real-time photos and videos. This app is the social content creator’s bff. For reals.

Created with app after a workout with no makeup on… the app is that good.

2. Swish

Swish video creation tool: This app is a legit game changer for video and ad creation. It comes with video and music you can use and in just a few seconds, have your own professionally produced video.

Here’s one I did in about 30 seconds with the app:

3. WordSwag

See image above for the Made to Thrive 21 Day Challenge logo. I created that in WordSwag in 10 seconds. That app is amazing pants. I use it all of the time for logo creation, post images, and slide development. It is a Rockstar app.

4. Loom

Use this app to create a voice message and/or video to send when you want to go beyond email. I use this app for sending personal messages that come in from our tribe with questions about programs they are considering enrolling in. Bonus… Every time I have used this, the person has moved forward. Great app!

Here’s an example of using it:

5. ScheduleOnce

We recently gave away 20-minute one-on-one coaching sessions with me when we sold a program. I love the coaching calls, but scheduling these can be a royal pain in the backside. Kelly LeMay, our Chief Operations Officer, found this rad app that not only allows you to schedule but will automatically put in a unique Zoom meeting link. This has saved us a boatload of time and made scheduling the calls super easy

6. Zoom

Zoom is our preferred meeting platform because it is super easy to use and never goes down. We previously used another platform and it constantly had issues. This platform never does and it works well from desktop or mobile, so it is super user friendly. Plus, the webinar platform allows you to broadcast live to Facebook at the same time as your webinar – score!

7. Headline Generator

Stuck for a title or headline for your next blog, post, email, or landing page? Get those creative vibes going with this app that will give you over 700 headline suggestions in seconds for any topic you choose.

Results from my search for questions about “productivity”:

9. Voxer

Voxer is a walkie talkie app used to send quick conversations to individuals or groups at one time. It is a premiere benefit of our Inner Circle Mastermind and the only level of membership that has direct access to me. Voxer is super easy to use and streamlines communication. I am a big fan… if you want to offer this as a coaching bonus or use it to streamline team communication, check it out.

10. OnePassword

Oh honey child, this platform rocks. It saves so much time and energy from having to hunt and peck and search and sort for passwords. Our whole team uses it and not only does it keep your passwords straight, but it manages credit cards, bookmarks, and more, so your time online can be spent audience-building and order-taking instead of data entry.

  1. These are GREAT! I’m a huge fan of LastPass. It stores all my passwords on my laptop and smartphone giving me security and ease to get into the multiple accounts I need access to.

  2. Thank you Kim!! Great app ideas!! Voxer does work great with our Inner Circle membership!! We love being members!! Highly recommend to everyone considering it!

    I love Last Pass too for password saving software.

  3. Marco Polo is like voxer but with video. It’s a tool I am learning to use more – it’s a super efficient way to communicate personally, but only if you are fully clothed most of the time 😉
