3. Mint

Totally automated, Mint is one of the easiest ways to keep track of spending and stay on top of your finances. Upon giving Mint permission to view your financial data via your online banking account, the software will then begin to learn your spending habits, categorize your expenditures and even manage your budgets. Small business owners need to-the-minute updates on their budgets and finances, so it’s important to have that data on the go.

Why new business owners need it:

  • Set a budget for any expenditures and get notified when you’re near your limit

This service allows users to keep track of notes, links, lists & photos, and acts as a shareable, cross-device hub of thoughts and ideas. If you’ve been struggling with organization, Evernote can help. Evernote calls itself “the workspace for your life’s work,” and for new business owners, it really can be. For daily reminders and shopping lists, physical sticky notes are more than up to the task. But when it comes to your business, cloud-based software is a must.

Why new business owners need it:

  • Photograph and categorize inspiring or thought-provoking marketing ideas
  • Clip and save interesting articles at home or on the go and organize your reading list
  • Keep your ideas synced between mobile and desktop and refer to them anywhere

5. Zoho

The age of the Rolodex has long passed. The need for a comprehensive, annotated database of customers and leads is what remains. In 2015, many businesses use Customer Relationship Management tools (CRM for short). Zoho is just one of many CRM tools available, but it comes with the added benefit of being free for up to ten users

6. Buffer
