How-to Guide for Using Trello in Your Creative Biz

Reading time: 2 min.

You’ve heard of it, now you just need a Trello review? I tried ’em all to manage my business: Asana, Pancake, and more. And while I have a slight tendency towards project-management-learning-obsession (it was arguably my favorite thing to learn from my bosses in PR agency land), Trello is a life-hack app anyone can use. Keep reading and learn to p-man like a pro with Trello!

First of all, what do I mean when I say project management? I’m referring to:

  1. Scheduling of the project
  2. Sequence of steps being the same every time
  3. Systemized housing of all our docs
  4. An overview of all the balls I have spinning in the air

Ok. Yeah. I use Honeybook, and theoretically, you could do p-man with HoneyBook. Honestly? I like Trello better for p-man. I lean on HoneyB to send contracts, automate my payments, send emails, and more.

But to keep ME organized and make sure I schedule the dogs’ vet appointments?

Trello.

Let’s review this sucker, shall we?

Before Trello, I tried Asana, but y’all, I’m so visual: If I don’t see a project, sadly, it slips from my mind. I dabbled in Pancake and 17Hats, but someone described Trello to me as “like sticky notes you can move around.”

You had me at school supplies.

I love Trello for SO many reasons, but why I love it and how to set it up for your creative biz right here:

P-man. Isn’t it the grandest?

Get a front-row seat to sales copy tips & hacks I’m applying to write first-rate/top-shelf funnels for clients, what’s on my desk (and in my earbuds), and what lessons I’ve learned … sometimes the hard way. Hope you’re ok that I’m a little more personal here than I am in social media land. 😜

These emails are read—and swipe filed—by people you probably follow in the creative industry … and you can get ‘em, too.
