I’d like to suggest ProofHub here. With ProofHub, your projects, teams, clients and all the communication stays in one place without the need of investing in too many different tools to run your business. This makes it easy to create plans, collaborate with teams and clients, keep things organized and deliver projects on time.

Take a look at some of its features-

ProofHub Discussion topics eliminates those confusing email threads to relate information, search important stuff and stay on the topic. It gets your team, clients and stakeholders to collaborate on common topics effortlessly in one centralized place. And you can easily loop someone in the conversation whenever needed.

ProofHub Tasks keeps your team running in the right direction by giving them a lucid view of their responsibilities. Assign tasks, set start and due dates, add labels and keep things on track. ProofHub notifies people whenever tasks are assigned to them and reminds them when they’re due. Everyone in the team gets a list of daily agenda. And managers get notified if something is overdue.

ProofHub’s Boards and workflows lets you divide the project tasks into stages and assign a Basic or Kanban workflow to them. You even get the option to Customize workflows as per requirement. This gives the teams a clear path of how the tasks need to progress, notifies people when tasks reach their stage and they move it to the next stage once their part is done. As a manager, you get to keep an eye on the overall progress, identify bottlenecks and better manage the flow.

ProofHub’s Group chat gives everyone the power to save time that is usually wasted in getting quick answers, feedback or even a quick “Go”. Start one-to-one or group chat, add teams and clients, and begin the conversation, be it casual or work related. Communicating in real-time and with the ones working with you on your projects ensures that they continue progressing smoothly. You get emojis too. ��

ProofHub’s built-in Proofing speeds up the file and document review process and brings clarity in feedback sharing. Upload files, add collaborators and send invitation to the clients. Using the markup tools clients and stakeholders can easily proof, mark changes and quickly provide their feedback. Previous versions of the proofed file can be viewed anytime to keep a track of the feedback and changes requested earlier, making it easy to compare the proofs. Once the changes are made, the files can be approved with a click of a button.

ProofHub Timesheets ensures that you get the by-minute details of the time spent on tasks and projects, making it easy to bill your clients and getting paid on time. Create timesheets, set time estimates, track time spent on tasks and get reports by person and dates. Record time manually or use the timer for accurate time tracking to save the time spent on maintaining the records and to avoid human errors.

ProofHub Notes give you a central place to capture important project notes, quick reminders, random thoughts and your big ideas. Keep them private or share them with teams and clients to collaborate over them and get their views. You can organize these notes in Ordinateurs portables and color code them to find them quickly whenever you need them.

I’m a full-time freelance writer. I’ll give you a few tools that make life easier for me…

Applications Wave: I use this for accounting and invoicing. It allows me to accept credit cards, checks, or cash payment and still keep track of things. If a client pays by credit card, the money is transferred to my bank in 2 business days, which is awesome. It’s also 100% free.

Paypal: Some of my clients prefer to pay by Paypal, which is fine by me. Get a business account (which is free) and you can use the built-in invoicing tool. When I get paid through Paypal, I can transfer the money to my business bank account and it shows up the next business day (although that will depend on the bank you’re using.)

The “Speech” feature on Apple Notes: You remember how your English teacher told you to “read your writing out loud” to yourself? Well, I have my computer do that for me. When I write a piece, before I send it to the client, I’ll copy and paste it from Google Docs (where I do most of my writing) to Apple Notes on my Mac. In the upper toolbar, then I’ll click the Edit dropdown, then I’ll click where it says “Speech.” I’ll then hear my piece being read to me through my headphones. I catch a lot of mistakes this way.

(By the way, if you’re on a PC, you can copy and paste content into Google Translate’s website, ignore the translation feature, but click the speaker button in the bottom right of the translate box to have Google read your work back to you.)

Free Screencast Recording for Gmail: Sometimes its easier to say what I’m thinking than to type it out. Screencast Recording is a free Chrome plugin from cloudHQ (a company I’ve done some work for and think very highly of) that adds a screencast recorder to my Gmail account.

I can just click record, talk about what’s happening, then embed the video in an email and send it to my client. I can’t tell you how helpful this one is or how many hours its saved me creating and sending emails.

They have a whole library of tools for Gmail. I have many of them installed and use them often.

Hope that helps. If you want to know more about any specific process in my business, just leave a comment. I’ll be glad to give additional details.

Merci!

je donnerais Instabug a try since it provides a seamless two-way communication, between you and client. Making your life a ton easier and process much faster.

Especially now, they’ve launched something specifically for freelancers, and a plan libre too! It’s really useful if you are a freelancer/developer/programmer working with Android, iOS, Unity or Cross Platform.

Basically, you can receive bug reports and you can also get comprehensive feedback and environment snapshots. You can add “categories” to know exactly what the client wanted to report.

Being an independent worker requires a ton of organization and responsibility. Now that you’re on your own, you have your own business to run, with a ton of clients, expectations and work (the good kind!). There are so many advantages to being a freelancer in that you now have the freedom to choose the work you want to do, and are in complete control of your work and time. It’s exciting and freeing.

But to become super successful, you need to learn how to manage and operate your business. A tool like AND CO is perfect for this: AND CO - Invoicing, Time Tracking & Payments. Try it FREE!

With this app, you can create contracts for your clients, track your time, expenses, and stay on top of your invoices all in one easy to use platform. It solves so many problems you didn’t even know you had and makes your life 100x easier for you. By spending less time on these menial tasks, you spend more time on your work, aka exactly what you wanted when you decided to go freelance, I assume ��

Having been a freelancer for a while I have been constantly optimising the way I work to save time & money. I’d say there are 3 key processes for freelancers (besides finding work but thats a different conversation!) these are: productivity, being paid & accounts/tax.

Here are the tools for each process I have found work best:

For Productivity:
Hubstaff, a time tracking/screen shot tool. As you never know when a screenshot will be taken it stops any distractions like checking your emails or the news, giving you total laser focus. Hubstaff

For being paid:
PayPact, payment protection for freelancers. So many freelancers get paid late or not at all so its wise to use an escrow like this. Paypact

For accounts/tax:
Zohobooks
, accounting software. Zohobooks has all the tools you need to handle your books/taxes and you can also invoice from it to be paid with Stripe. Zoho
