Let’s be honest; work is hard. Many times, it isn’t the task that is difficult, but the logistics and processes related to how work happens that can be challenging to manage. Have to create a marketing strategy? Well, your experience and skill-level will make the task itself manageable, but the process for collaborating with others…now that could be a struggle.
How do you assign various marketing tasks to others? How do you know if someone completed the job? What if you need to schedule a meeting with someone quickly? Figuring out the logistics behind this one task can be overwhelming.
So, what would happen if you could expand productivity and take the hassle out of planning out the “process?”
A Productivity Multiplier?
When it comes to accomplishing all you need to, you need a tool that can improve your productivity, and multiply your effectiveness. You have the ideas, and you know what you need to accomplish, but you need a productivity platform that can make it easier to maximize your time.
Flujo exists to do just that. It is the ultimate productivity multiplier and platform. It is a tool that gives you the freedom and flexibility to handle your core business functions, while flujo takes care of the processes surrounding them. So, how can FLUJO make the process of work much more natural and straightforward for you and your team?
Let’s see what a day in the life of someone using flujo could be like.
A Day in the Life of Teams using flujo
Turning a Chaotic Morning into the Start of a Streamlined Workday
Derek is the owner of a software development company. His business produces a tool that helps small businesses streamline their social media marketing processes. He and his team are preparing for a new product rollout, and they just began using flujo, a productivity platform.
At 8:00 am EST, Derek gets ready for the day. He signs on to flujo to take a look at the various teams he created. For the past year, Derek has faced a challenge in being able to address the needs of each functional department while also giving them a space to handle their individual projects, so he created team groups for the finance and accounting, marketing, and product development teams.
Today, Derek needs to meet with marketing to discuss a new product rollout. So, on Thursday he created a meeting request with the link to a Zoom virtual conference.
Many times, Derek’s teams are working during various times of the week — due to multiple time zone differences — so this is how flujo’s calendar feature made the process of setting up meetings much more streamlined and straightforward:
To give a team the heads-up regarding meeting topics, Derek was able to start a discussion thread on the proposed meeting agenda.
Derek was also able to avoid scheduling conflicts as the calendar revealed the team’s other meetings and commitments.
Derek also set reminders for the meeting, so each team member would receive an alert three days, one day, and an hour before the scheduled meeting by email.
This process prevented Derek from having to risk sending an invite by email (where it could have been missed in a barrage of email messages) and setting up meeting reminders using Google Calendar or another platform. Derek was able to schedule the meeting, preview topics, and set up reminders from one platform.
Harnessing the Power of Teamwork for Stellar Marketing Campaigns
There are 30 days left until the new product launch. The marketing team has been given their marching orders, and Alice, the marketing director, is ready to get with her team to ensure they accomplish all they need to.
In the past, Alice would have bounced between tools like Trello, Google Drive, and Todoist to keep up with designated tasks for the team to accomplish in this last month. However, Alice needed a productivity boost and wanted to simplify the process.
As Alice mapped out her plan for managing this last month of the rollout, she put together all the resources FLUJO had to offer to multiply her productivity.
Alice begins by importing documents from Google Drive to flujo’s team Drive to have all plans and forms in one place. Here she makes space for marketing strategy plans and a content calendar. For each person on her team, Alice created duties and deadlines using the Task feature. Now, everyone can access the strategy, add to the content creation document, and keep track of their tasks and projects in one location.
Enhance the Product Development and Project Management Process
While Alice is taking the lead with the marketing team, Shawn is heading up the product management process. His team is in charge of ensuring the new rollout is error-free and delivered by the deadline.
He and the marketing team are working together to prepare for a product launch event. Alice and Shawn jointly decided on the date and set up the launch using the Events feature. Fortunately, enough, the feature revealed that there was a conflict with a team retreat and brainstorm session. As a result, the launch event was moved to another day.
Shawn and his team are almost at the end of the product development cycle; however, there is still much to be done. Shawn delegates final budget confirmations, and quality testing to himself. He then assigns the task of final design changes to various members of his team using the Task feature.
Shawn also imports documents to the flujo Drive for the sharing of critical product documents. Unfortunately, one of his team members doesn’t have space on her Drive to support new materials. Shawn fixes this problem by sharing his Drive space with her so she can access and create files that are essential for the completion of the process.
All of these occurrences lead to the successful launch of the product. These teams have the tools and space they need to collaborate in one place.
A One-Stop-Shop for all Things Productivity
The goal of the flujo team is to have every project turn out like the one above. Accomplishing duties at work is hard enough. As a result, we feel the process of getting the job done should be as straightforward and seamless as possible.
In and of itself, flujo is a to-do list app, project management tool, calendar scheduler, team communication , and cloud-based drive wrapped into one robust productivity tool. Flujo serves the team as well as the individual by allowing workers to keep track of personal notes, and track their progress using the Task and To-Do feature. It is the ideal productivity platform.
We want to facilitate a process where entrepreneurs and teams no longer have to bounce around to multiple apps or pay to use a variety of tools. With flujo, everything you need to be productive is in one place. Again, work is hard enough; FLUJO is here to make the processes surrounding it less stressful and more straightforward.
