Evernote as a Social Media Calendar – How is this Possible?

Evernote as a Social Media Calendar – How is this Possible?

I’m pretty sure no one has ever thought Evernote could be used as a Social Media calendar.

Yep it sure can!  I use it not only for myself, but my clients as well.  They love what I have done and become Evernote users at the same time.

Let’s get you started on using Evernote for YOUR Social Media calendar!


#1: Create 2 notebooks – calling it anything you like – for the video I used ‘Facebook’ and ‘Twitter’

Next step will be creating the main notebook with sub notebooks underneath.  Evernote calls them Stacks.

#2: Click on the ‘Facebook’ Notebook and drag it to be on top of the ‘Twitter’ notebook let go of your mouse.

Evernote will prompt you to name the STACK – This is where you create the main title to represent the notebooks underneath it.  For the video I used ‘Social Media Calendar’ for this is the purpose behind these notebooks.

Once you name that Stack you will see that the 2 notebooks created at step #1 are now underneath the notebook/stack you just created.

You can go ahead and create more notebooks to go with the notebook/stack and just remember to back to step #2 to get those notebooks underneath.

One thing I didn’t mention in the video, when you log into your account via the desktop version those notebooks will now show up and are ready for you to start creating.

Down in the comments – let me know how you are using Evernote, did you go ahead and start using for your Social Media planning or if you have any questions regarding Evernote.


15 Ways to Utilize Evernote into your Business

15 Ways to Utilize Evernote into your Business

As business owner we are always searching for new tools to utilize in our business from creating notes, listing tasks and more.  Evernote is that tool!

I have been using Evernote for my business for the last 5 years.  During these years I have figured out ways to make this system work specifically for my business needs. In addition, I’ve trained businesses to start using Evernote in their business.

Let me tell you a bit about Evernote in case you have not heard of it.

Evernote is a workspace software downloaded to your desktop/laptop or can be used directly on the web as well on your mobile devices.  You can create and collect notes, make lists, take pictures, collaborate with co-workers and much more.  Your notebooks and notes are then synced into your online account so that no matter where you are, you have access to all your Evernote notebooks and notes.

Below are 15 simple ways to start using your Evernote for your business:

  1. Create tasks list and check them off as you complete them
  2. Track your time during the day on projects or client work
  3. Track mileage to and from meetings
  4. Create a blog article (which is how I’m creating this one before it goes onto my website)
  5. Create a note with quotes and tips – you won’t ever loose them again.
  6. Collaborate with co-workers or team members by using the chat system.
  7. Save articles from the web for future reading or pass along to others (there’s an app for that)
  8. Track your business goals and check them off as you reach them
  9. Track business finances.  Create a table and upload image of your receipts
  10. Want to write a book? What better way to brainstorm or write away. Don’t forget to use the word count feature to keep track of the length of your book.
  11. Record your notes, blog articles, phone interviews
  12.  During networking or meetings, don’t use paper, create a note and start typing away.
  13.  Create reminders and have them emailed so you never forget again
  14.  Brainstorm products/services or any other business idea.
  15. Create templates for use in the business – especially those forms you need consistently to be filled out by prospective clients or team members.
  16. Need a simple easy presentation?  Create the note and then click the present icon and go live with it during a meeting, webinar or recording.
  17. Upload or use your camera to insert images where needed.
  18. Share some of these notes/notebooks with team members instead of emailing.

I know I said 15, but I couldn’t help it.  There is much you can do with Evernote that I could go on and on.

Keep this in mind no matter what type of business you are….Evernote can be used for YOUR business.

[su_quote cite=” “]Prior to Leona I did not even know this tool existed and what a great communication tool it can be. With Leona’s training I have been able to use evernote and create notebooks and notes in order to keep all facets of my business organized. It is also a great tool when you are trying to share information with other people on your team. Before applying Evernote all communication was done going back and forth in email. It was a very frustrating process and not very efficient since emails would get lost or go unread. Now in evernote we can share the notes and everyone on the team that is part of that project can see these notes. It is great to have everything in one place and be able to see all that is being done. Once the tasks are completed they can be archived and more notebooks can be created. I am sure there are more bells and whistles that can be used but it has been a life saver for the business and I am glad she introduced me to it. ~ Shanna Kabatznick, Founder of FABWOMEN[/su_quote]
