Use These Top 5 Websites To Boost Your Teams Productivity!
What are the top 5 websites that will help your startup?
The top 5 websites to boost and increase your productivity, what are they and what does that mean? Frankly with the over-dependency and the level of dependency we have on technology, there's an element of distraction that's created, right? How do you prevent that, and how do you make your sites more productive? If you're a startup and a founder of a company and you want your employees to be checking and creating something and staying focused, here are some tools for you.
Rescue Time is our number 1 recommended website. By the way, what Rescue Time is is a simple web application that shows you how much time you're spending on other things and not your core focus or your core job. Let's say, you're browsing on Facebook all day instead of writing code as a developer, Rescue Time tells you how much time you're wasting on Facebook, which we're all guilty of. Too much time on the social media sites like Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and not enough getting done. Everybody goes through that. However, save some time because time is money, and if you're building a company, you've got to make sure that your employees are in check, and be respectful to them. Obviously, let them use social media, but save time. That's what Rescue Time is. We recommend it as our number 1 to increase productivity across your startup.

The second is Buffer, which we support 100% for a number of reasons. One disclosure, we are investors in Buffer, and it's a social media platform that we've used in many of our pro bono companies. Most startups write content and share it across social networks as opposed to having to login to each network using their credentials. Logging in and signing in - it's such a hassle. We recommend for everyone to try Buffer. Use Buffer as a way to deploy your content across all other social media networks and get customers as a result of it. Buffer saves you time, which again, goes back to our first thing, time equals money.
Third is Worklife. The fourth is the Plan, and last but not least is 1Password, which helps you keep track of all your passwords. 1Password can save you 2 to 3, 5 minutes a day, which adds up.
I think the point is this, whether you're a startup or an investor, time equals money. Time equals money, and your productivity is important. If you can save, for example, through Buffer, Buffer might save you 20 minutes per day by aggregating your content and deploying it as opposed to signing into all your social media accounts. Well, 20 minutes a day times 7 equals over 2 hours a week, which over a year, 2 hours a week will end up being 4 to 5 days of your time. It does add up.
There's tons more content about saving time and building your own company, investing in startups, and everything you need to know about startups on our website.
