What Tools or Systems Do You Love - An ActiveRain Contest

February Contest- Tell Us What You Can't Love and Can't Live Without

It's the month we focus on love whether or not there is someone special in our lives. We all have things that are special to us and we want to know what you are thinking and loving.

In our businesses there are tools or systems that make our jobs easier, more fun and more profitable. We want to hear about your 2 favorite loves...the how's and why's these tools or systems streamline your business or have caused you to not want to live without them. So here's the deal...

  • Pick 2 tech tools or systems that you use in your business. Tell us about each one in this one post, when you added it to the mix and if it was an easy transition. When did you start falling in love with it? How has it made you more efficient, brought in more business or enabled you to enhance your business and meet your goals? What makes you love it?
  • There are points in it for you. We would never ask you to dig deep into the gray matter without a generous reward on the other end. The hard part will be to narrow it down to your favorite 2. Of course we all have a love-hate affair with our smartphones so let's think a little deeper than this and not talk about our smartphones. Choose an app, tech tool, system or program that is making your business life so much better. Pull out the stops and get downright gushy. 

  • Write a detailed post with plenty of love showing. We ask you to expound and lay it on with a minimum of 500 words for the total post. Let's face it, if you are really a lover and a fan of the tool or system, you won't want to stop at 500 words. For your efforts we will reward you with 1500 points.

What Tools or Systems Do You Love - An ActiveRain Contest

Oh by the way, only one entry per person will get the bonus points but if you are so inspired to keep writing on the topic, we will have our radar on and might pick up your other posts for a feature or the Daily Drop.

Wow, all the interesting posts that I loved to read.

I think a re-blog is a good idea for last-minute entries.

I wasn't seeing the points awarded for this contest. Last night I came back to this original thread and discovered my submission isn't here! I wrote "Real Estate Tools I Love" on February 10th. Any chance I can get my points despite this snafu?
