One of the hardest parts of starting your own business is staying organized, especially if you work from home and have kids playing in the background while you’re trying to get work done. If you’re struggling to stay organized and on top of your business tasks, then I want you to try Trello. Trello will revolutionize the way you run your business. I’m not even exaggerating. Let me show you a few ways you can use Trello for your business.
Trello is great for project management because it can keep track of every single task, assignment, and deadline all in one place. Using Trello, you can create different boards for each project you’re working on. Then within the board, you can create lists to track the different phases of the project, and within the lists, you can create cards for each individual task that needs to be done. On each card, you can add attachments, descriptions, notes, comments, deadlines, and more.
You no longer need to be overwhelmed by the enormity of a project. Trello can help you break down each project into manageable steps so that you can visually see your progress along the way. It’s pretty great.
Do you work with more than one person? Maybe you have a partner or a small staff. Trello can help you stay organized with your team, too. You can invite people to join different boards, or even different cards. Then you can assign cards and tasks to different people, and you can all see the project’s progress. You can write comments to each other in the cards, set deadlines, and make changes to a project, and Trello will send notifications to the people involved with each board and card.
Trello is especially great if you and your team can’t get together regularly to meet in person. Trello has a great app, too, so you can work on the go, and the app syncs seamlessly with the online website, updating in real time. You can easily work remotely with your team and still have everyone stay on task and on deadline.
Trello is even great for the simplest of jobs: your to-do list. You can create a simple board with three lists: to-do, in progress, and done. Or you can create a calendar and organize your tasks by day and time. You have the satisfaction of moving a card from one list to another, and then archiving the cards when you’re finished so they no longer show up on the board. Trust me, there’s nothing better than archiving a big bunch of cards with tasks that you’ve completed. You’ll feel like a rock star!
