In the video below you will see eGuide Tech Allies owner, Gregory Perrine walk through how to set up an account, and get going with Trello
With emails piling up in your inbox, apps pushing notifications through every few moments, and group text conversations blowing up from last weekend's festivities, it's no wonder why many people have technology paralysis and can't seem to complete a simple project or task.
Use this app to come prepared for any meeting.
If you are in any sort of sales or development position, have you ever been thrown into a last minute meeting with a stranger at the request of your boss? Or have you gotten connected to a new lead through a pre-existing contact, but don't really know all that much about them?
Well there's a free app that does all of the digital stalking you would do on your own. Before you take a step into a meeting, the app sends you both an email and push notification with all of that information in one place.
It's called Charlie: https://charlieapp.com/
By linking your LinkedIn, Calendar, Facebook, Salesforce Account, Email, and Twitter accounts, Charlie will scour those outlets informing you of both personal and professional items of interest for anyone you have a meeting scheduled with.
Charlie will suggest what interests you may have in common with that person. What company highlights you may be able to bring up in the conversation, and if the person you are meeting with has been featured in any published articles.
Not only does this open up some time in your schedule, but it will also make you look like a well researched profession in any meeting.
Don't be weird, though.
Part of being a successful sales or development professional is being able to weave in topics with the person you are meeting with without forcing it, and having the meeting turn into an interview.
We recommend glancing through the email and the app before you walk into a meeting, choosing a few things to catalog in the back of your head to bring up throughout the meeting, and then don't reference it again until the meeting is over.
Just because you DO know a fair amount of things about the person you are meeting with, DOES NOT mean you have to interrogate them, or regurgitate all of the research you have done back to them.
Let's face it, the average person is addicted to their smart device. Whether it's Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, we fill our time with consuming thousands of micro-moments captured through social media.
Your wedding day is no different.
We've all been there, sitting in the crowd as a close friend is about to say, "I do", when suddenly we look around only to be met with a sea of smart devices looking to capture that special moment.
But then what? That photo might make its way to social media, where from the honeymoon suite the betrothed couple will swipe through, savoring the magic from the hours prior, only to have it be logged away in the abyss of big data.
What if there was a way to get real time photos of your wedding from your guests AS THE WEDDING & RECEPTION WERE TAKING PLACE?
Well, there's an app for that! Veri - is a per event subscription based app that allows photos taken from your guests smart devices to be automatically uploaded to a digital gallery. Essentially it's a modern day solution to dropping a disposable camera on each guest's dining table.
The amazing thing is, since everything happens in real time -- while the wedding party is taking family formals, and the guests are on the way to the reception, you are able to keep an eye on the action, seeing who's wearing what, who's chatting with who, and who's about to make a fool of themselves.
Following the event, the subscriber is allowed access to all of the pictures to do as they please. No need for a wedding hashtag, and scouring through social media to re-claim the day.
Pricing is incredibly reasonable:
1 Event for $97
3 Events for $147
- 5 Events for $175
You set the time and dates you would like the app to be live, and guests download and select your event. From there any picture taken on your guest's device will automatically be uploaded.
What about those less than flattering selfies you don't want to share?
Each user has the ability to delete pictures from the gallery during the event. This means that that reel of glamour shots you needed to get that one good pic, doesn't need to be shared with the class, you can choose your best and delete the rest.
So for those newly engaged couples, who are in the initial planning stages of your big day, invest $100 - $200 to capture the memories as they happen. You won't regret having all those pictures in one place after the "I dos".
