Life Happens

John Lennon said, “Life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.”

So, yes, life has been happening.

Since I last posted, way back last year, I evaluated dozens of creative management solutions. Everything from “free” collaborative tools to deeply integrated enterprise solutions that require a monthly fee. All are specific to creative services.

Imagine, if you will, attending webinars and demos – every day. A list of questions; more questions; follow-up and follow-through.

And there are some really great solutions out there.

My intent was to compile and give a sound synopsis of everything that was relevant to a creative agency or in-house marketing department. Reviews included collaboration, project management, organization, accounting, media, and asset management.

What are the best solutions for my clients? How can I best present the facts and skip the hype?

I was almost there. Then I had a client who needed my undivided attention and I dropped everything.

So glad I did because they were wonderful to work with. Which is so often the case.

But now I’m back – refreshing my reviews and editing them for posting. More webinars and demos.

The best part for you is that you don’t have to sit through hours of reviews. I’m doing that and will share – the great, the good and the so-so.

My goal is to find the right tools to allow creatives more time to be productive – reducing administrative work – while providing the details to keep management informed and happy.

More to come!
