StayFocusd is a productivity extension for Google Chrome. StayFocusd helps you focus on your tasks by limiting the amount of time you spend on distracting websites.
With this extension, you add the sites you want to block to your “blocked sites” list, set how long you want the sites to block to last, and the extension will block your access to those sites for the amount of time listed. StayFocusd saves you time by allowing you spend more time on what’s important.
If you take social media marketing seriously, Hootsuite is the social media tool for you. HootSuite is one of the most widely used social media scheduling and management tools.
Along with allowing you to schedule content to your social media channels, Hootsuite is filled with features that will help you manage and grow your social media channels.
Tailwind is a Pinterest scheduling tool. I use Tailwind to help increase my Pinterest traffic and followers. Tailwind saves you time by allowing you to schedule pins to your Pinterest account. That way, even if you’re not manually pinning, you’re still active on the platform.
