Online Planning Tools

Online planning tools can keep you organized, connected and extremely competitive in your industry. When youíre assessing which tools youíll employ there are a few simple questions you need to ask yourself:Itís really not rocket science; itís a matter of time and thought. Figure out whatís going to be in your and your clientsí best, short and long term, interests. If you have to, like so many of us have done, reinvent the wheel every time you sit down to produce content, it becomes a drain, a gamble with inconsistency and can hamper your growth. Developing a great plan will allay all of this!

Online Planning ToolsWhat are they?
Online planning tools, in a very basic sense, are just that, tools to be accessed and used online/the Internet for the task of planning. You can use them to flesh out and catalogue your thoughts, ideas, etc. Theyíre great applications that have much more functionality and future uses than they modestly tout on their sites. Theyíre mind mapping applications, calendars, notebooks, etc. that give you freedom from being chained to a given location. You just need and Internet connection.

How to use them
You can use your planning tools toWhere to get them
There are literally hundreds of sites/applications that can be used as online planning hubs. Here are some of the places to grab your tools to get you started:Pros and Cons
Pros:Cons:With everything there are pros and cons, so Iíll sum this all up in a nutshell statement. Keep in mind the pros far outweigh the cons here. When you start any planning process on or offline youíve virtually got an endless road of possibilities and your vision and plans can be as broad as you fathom. As you can see, that is both a pro and a con. The caution here is to make your strides directed so you can keep on track and stay focused with actionable, measurable steps moving you toward your desired results.

Remember, whether these tools work best for you or you prefer another set of online planning tools, start by answering your preliminary questions: What all do you need to accomplish? Whatís your current process? What tools will get your there the fastest and more efficiently? How do you getíem? And finally... How do you use them?

As always itís been my pleasure sharing these business building ideas with you. Until next time...
