The Way I Manage My Projects with brightpod
We start about 9:30am.
I start my day by checking on any tasks for me and my team in Brightpod, answering emails, returning phone calls, and writing my blog posts and other marketing articles. Then I work on my client projects and appointments, including managing the team members who may be working on the projects with me.
My husband starts his day making sure he does his daily writing word count for his fiction books, then he does his client projects and appointments.
We end about 5:30 or 6pm by reviewing the day and planning for the next.
Having all of the apps I use daily available on all of my devices so that I can seamlessly work from anywhere at any time.
Trying to focus on one task at a time.
Turning off all beeps, buzzers, and notifications during my writing time.
Presently, we have about 25 pods in Brightpod. Different team members work on different pods.
We do writing, editing, publishing, and marketing for individuals, businesses, graduates and post-graduate students around the world.
I’ve tried just about every app out there over the years. I recently really liked Basecamp, but as Brightpod has gotten more and more functional, I finally switched all projects for the team and my clients to Brightpod.
I wouldn’t call it “unexpected”, but the Brightpod editorial calendar has been wonderful, especially because we manage about seven blogs for ourselves and clients. It is almost impossible to keep up with all of them individually on the WordPress calendars. As the manager of everything and everyone for all of the companies, I find it so helpful for everything to be on the Brightpod calendar and then in my iCal/GCal.
Brightpod was very easy for everyone on my team to learn, and it continues to be very easy for everyone to use.
The most used feature is the Activity Stream. I can keep up with everything going with everyone at any time. My favorite is the universal search for all pods, people, files, etc.
Very sad. I love Brightpod because it’s easy to use, available everywhere, does what I need it to do, and has pretty colors!
Your customer service is so very awesome. Any time I have an issue or a suggestion, I hear from you immediately. I love that.
