Why you should read this book
Have you ever spent half a day looking for the best alternatives of video and photo editing software?
Or resume builder website?
Looking for project or property management software?
Need the best browser extension for screen recording?
What is the best mobile app for exercise and healthy eating?
As a small business owner, have you ever spent countless hours choosing the best alternatives for CRM, accounting, and payroll software?
When I was building my website, I had to ask countless questions like “What’s the best add-on to schedule and track my emails?” “What’s the best on-demand service for legal advice?” “Which service should I use to put together a ‘Terms of Service’ for my website? ” and “What are the best browser extensions to help me focus better?”
You will find the answer to these and hundreds of other questions in this book.
Searching for the best software alternatives is always time-consuming and frustrating. While latest technology can increase your productivity in all parts of life, choosing the best web services, websites and mobile apps out of the countless options can actually inhibit your productivity.
With the help of an online community, I did an extensive review of the best productivity software. With this guidebook at your side, you won’t have to do time-consuming and painful online research again.
All software suggestions described in this book have been thoroughly reviewed based on the software’s functionality, user experience, and design. Over 5,000 tools were considered, and over 800 of the best ones were thoughtfully selected for this book.
This book is the result of the crowdsourced effort by people building and contributing to Zen Market, a discovery search engine designed to help people overcome choice overload when looking for the best software alternatives.
