This section of the newsletter is also available as a blog post with additional commentary and screenshots.
1) Simple event management app
Are you organizing a small event and Facebook events is no option. You do not need a full-fledged event management software, instead of just a link to send around where people can RSVP?
Mixily might be the service you were looking for. I registered recently for an event using this service and that got me interested in taking a detailed look.
The web service claims that all event details can be edited on one page. That’s a good way to communicate simplicity. I signed up and created an event within 5 minutes (while riding the subway).
2) Open your calendar for scheduling via your website
Do you want to offer booking office hours via your website? You could provide a booking form with a time & date picker, or show the open slots from your calendar on your website. The second option is more elegant.
Calendly is a service that connects to your Outlook or Google calendar and allows embedding of the free hours on your website.
3) Increase your email productivity with email templates (Gmail)
There is no shortage of services that promise to improve your email productivity. Rightinbox is a service that connects to your Gmail account and adds features that especially appeal to marketers or salespeople doing lots of outreach via email. The tool adds features for recurring emails, templates, different signatures, a send later option, and more.
4) Project management tool
Are you on the lookout for a new project management tool? Basecamp is a well-known and popular solution. You can now start fiddling around with their product by signing up for their completely free personal plan, that was announced earlier this week.
5) Get paid as a blogger
WordPress launched a recurring payment feature. Bloggers that use the Jetpack plugin and blog on WordPress.com can use the new feature. More
6) No Code website design
Webflow is very popular right now, the web design app is in the no-code hype cycle but it’s actually a very advanced WYSIWYG design tool. I have used it for about 20 hours to get a feel for it and have to say I like it. That’s my verdict after only knowing 5% of what can be done using this app.
To see what you can create with Webflow a designer re-created the Apple AirPod Pro website. Check the original page on Apple.com. Then head over to the Webflow version.
7) How good are you at drawing circles?
This website tells you! My best score: 93.2% (on mobile).
