When you’re a small business owner, you have to get darn good at prioritizing tasks, especially if, like me, you’re a solopreneur.
Because those blog posts and newsletters and social media status updates aren’t going to write and post themselves. And the 78 other things on your to-do list aren’t going to take care of themselves either.
I’ve written about how to prioritize your small business to-do list before, but it also helps to have a few go-to online tools to help with planning, organizing, and project management.
Today I want to share three online productivity tools that can help you leverage your time to get more done. All three are free (or offer a free version).
Toodledo is a sortable online to-do list. Features include a “hotlist,” which is a list that automatically figures out what’s important to you right now; alarms, which remind you about tasks that are due soon and can be delivered via via email, sms, twitter or iPhone; and even a scheduler, which analyzes the details of your tasks to determine the best use of your time.

WorkFlowy is an organizational tool that allows you to manage all the information in your life in one place. You can use it for brainstorming, note taking, keeping a journal, organizing big projects, and even planning a wedding or other big event. Visit the link below and scroll down to see what other people say about the power of using Workflowy, and watch the 45 second demo video while you’re there for a great overview of what Workflowy can do.

Wrike is an online platform for managing projects and teams. Team members can collaborate and get things done efficiently all in one place, with features that let you schedule, discuss and track progress in real time.
When you go to the link below you’ll see details about the paid versions of Wrike; there is a free version, you just have to dig for it.
To do that, go to the website and click on the “pricing and signup” tab at the top. Then under the 4 pricing options you’ll see “Don’t need premium features right away? Continue with our FREE version: Key features for up to 5 users and unlimited collaborators. Switch to the premium plan any time later.”
