Small business owners often need octopus hands to cope with their workload.  If you’re a small business owner looking to increase productivity and organisation – perhaps there is an app that might make your day a little easier? Our top 4 apps for busy small business owners are…

RescueTime: Image you were able to find out where all your time actually went? This app automatically tracks time you’ve spent on applications and websites to give you an accurate picture of how you spent your day. The RescueTime follows through with a detailed report, which shows how you might have been more productive. RescueTime Lite is free but there is a heap of features on the paid version.

My Minutes: Speaking of organisational skills My Minutes is a personal time management app for iPhones and Android. With this app, you set a goal (for example, “Spend only one hour checking email” or “Work out for 30 minutes”), and the app will let you know when you’re finished. My Minutes is sort of like a personal trainer for time management.

Dropbox: If you are not up in the ‘cloud’ then hurry up – you will love it! Dropbox is the most popular platform on which to store and share files on the cloud. Though Dropbox could probably be of benefit to any business, its services are especially useful for companies which have people that work remotely or work with freelancers.

Mailchimp: The Rubiix Practical Gains newsletter goes out with the help of Mailchimp and if you want to send “better email” then Mailchimp is a must. Mailchimp helps you manage your mailing lists and easily create newsletters. Mailchimp pricing depends on the number of subscribers you have, and it’s free to send up to 12,000 emails per month if you have up to 2,000 subscribers.
