5 ways Asana changed my business [for the better]
I use to have to-do lists covering my desk, my to-do lists had to-do lists and I was attempting to do business in my brain. Then I came across Trello and starting using that for a while, and although it was much better than what I was currently using, there were a few limitations to it that I wish I had…. Then I heard another business owner show a video of how they used Asana in their business and I was intrigued, I began researching it and using it for my business and it made such an impact, that I now help educate others on how to use it for their business.
This blog posts includes 5 ways that Asana has changed my business.
I had a business home
Everything and anything to do with my business was now in Asana. For example I had all my branding information, all my client work tasks, all my workflows, all my content plans, my monthly goals… I think you get the picture.
I had someone reach out to me saying ‘I feel so overwhelmed in my business, I feel like I’m doing it all in my head and I need a system that works.’
This comment made me realise just how important it is to have a business home to store everything and you know that nothing will be missed. P.S Asana also has an app so that you can take it on the go if you don’t have your computer.
I could easily communicate with clients and keep track of tasks
Asana is a project management tool, which means it is set up in a way that not only helps you manage your process, yet also communicate for clients.
For example, with one client I can see when her podcast is recorded and is ready for my to schedule on her blog. I am also able to send messages to my team member/clients to communicate on certain business tasks to help keep us on the same page.
I had a visual way of seeing upcoming tasks
By using Asana I am able to choose the different types of ways I want to view my tasks [on calendar view, board video or list view] and it is a very visual platform for displaying content.
As you can see in the calendar below I am able to see my upcoming blog and email schedule, this then helped me to know when I need to schedule social media for to match the content.
I could create workflows and systems with deadlines
I love that in Asana I am able to list out my workflows and duplicate them for specific projects and create deadlines for the whole task and also sub tasks.
It saved hours from finding things
By having everything in one place, it saved me hours… for example:
I didn’t have to go to my google docs, and then find the one I was looking for…. I could just click a link on an Asana card and open it right up
I didn’t have to search for scheduling link everytime someone wanted a call, I could just go into the relevant Asana card and copy it over.
I didn’t have to go find my brand style guide to find my HEX color codes… I could just go and copy it.
Can you relate to any of these? I have found that as entrepreneurs we need to find ways to save time, and by simply having important info all in one place, we don’t have to waste time searching for it.
So give it a go, I highly recommend using Asana for your business!
