Right around the time I graduated college in 2014, I made one of the best decisions for my business.. I started using a project management app to keep up with all of the work I had at one time. This was one of the best things I could have done, and at this point it seems like almost all business owners, especially designers, are using one app or the other to keep track of their projects. However, I still see the occasional question about how a project management app can really benefit you, and honestly, there are too many ways to count :)
Over the course of the past three years, I’ve gone back and forth with different apps and even had a short time period where I dared to run things straight out of my inbox. However, I keep coming back to my favorite app, Asana, to manage my client projects. I actually love this app so much that I’ve used it to collaborate with Krista (when we were bringing Coded Creative to life), maintain my editorial calendar, and keep other projects in my business on track. Needless to say, a good project management app can be used for more than just your design projects.
However, today I wanted to get straight to the point and share with you 6 reasons that all designers should be using a project management app in their business with clients. I have a feeling that after you read this post, you’ll be itching to try one out for yourself if you haven’t already.
