7 Apps Every Freelancer Should Use

Today's technology makes it easier than ever to take control of your career and work as a freelancer. With the Internet at your fingertips to connect you to the world and handy apps in your pocket to maximize your efficiency and functionality, there's nothing holding you back from building the career of your dreams from scratch. Here are some valuable apps that will help you along the way.

Google Analytics – For Web Page Analysis

If you have a web page (and every freelancer should), it's important to keep up with its stats. Google Analytics provides you with information about your visitors, conversion rate, AdWords, and more. You'll always know where your page is succeeding and where your Internet presence needs a little work.

HootSuite – For Social Media Management

Maintaining a constant presence on social media sites is almost impossible if you want to have time to actually have a life, too. HootSuite simplifies things by helping you to schedule future tweets and updates so you look like you're always at it, even when you're really enjoying an afternoon nap.

Mint – For Detailed Money Management

One of the first things you'll discover as a freelancer is that your income is never guaranteed. It will fluctuate regularly – and sometimes dramatically. Keeping a close eye on your finances is essential. Mint syncs with your bank and credit card accounts so you always have a clear picture of your financial situation.

FreshBooks Cloud Accounting

If you need to invoice your clients, FreshBooks is a great way to do so. The mobile app allows you to track your billable time, view your allocated hours per project in a handy calendar, and send invoices to clients for online payment. Never let an important payment slip past you again.

GoToMeeting – For Meetings On-the-Go

GoToMeeting allows you to hold everything from small team meetings to massive webinars. If you have a meeting to attend but you aren't in your office at the time of the event, just use the GoToMeeting app to attend via your phone. With this app, you never need to stay in due to an upcoming meeting again.

Dropbox – For Simplified Cloud Computing

Save and share documents, pictures, videos, and more through Dropbox. This gives you access across devices, and makes it easy to show someone else what you're talking about without hassling with giant email attachments.

Skitch – For Simplified Sharing

Getting your idea across is tricky when you're communicating with someone who's miles away. Skitch simplifies things immensely by allowing you to quickly mark up photos, maps, and documents with arrows, lines, shapes, and text. Clarifying your thoughts is easier than ever, and you can do it all from your phone.
