3. Smartphone Tip
Take a photo of a business card handed to you - in case you lose it. Even better, get a business card reading app. I use Cam Card because you can categorise the contacts added AND you can export a list of the business card details from your phone in an Excel Spreadsheet.

5. SMB - Let Customers Know When You’re Away

Out of office reply
If you run your own business, or you’re one of a few staff, how will customers know when you’re away or unavailable?

Large companies have servers that automatically answer incoming emails with an out of office message for staff on leave. You can solve this problem if you don’t have such a server.

• Gmail > Settings (scroll to the bottom) Out of Office AutoReply
• If your computer will be receiving emails while you’re away, create a rule to respond to incoming emails with a template you create.
Have the rule set only for incoming emails when your name is in the To field.
• Alternatively create a rule on your ISP webmail account that sends the automatic reply to incoming emails.

This is one of the tips from my 101 Quick Tips Create A Great Customer Experience Ebook

6. Health & Wellbeing Tip - Must Have App

If you're trying to diet or just track your exercises, why not try My Fitness Pal? I LOVE LOVE LOVE this app. It syncs steps with my Galaxy Note, keeps track of the calories and nutrition you enter. If a food isn't in it's enormously extensive database - you simply snap the foods barcode with your phone and enter it yourself. Track your goals, weight loss, water consumption and more on your phone or computer. Even better the free version is loaded with utility, meaning it's not necessary to get the paid version.

I find the only way to keep myself on the dieting straight and narrow is to document it.
