Sometimes you don’t know you need something until after you get it! I know I typically write about Keller Williams specific items, but this one is SO worth sharing! There is an app my daughter discovered this app and got me hooked. GoodNotes is free, but the extras that come with paying for the full $4.99 version are worth it for your business.
First the free version of GoodNotes does almost everything the paid version does. It does just like it sounds and is a great app for taking notes. Not just any notes, but this app lets you add pictures, typed text, hand written notes and PDF’s!! You can start with an existing PDF or create a new one. Once you have started a note, you can add extra pages. The page options are ruled paper, squared paper, music paper, or plane paper. You can also select between standard portrait or landscape. It get’s better, you can add a notebook cover page with different colors!
This is great for taking notes for clients or in classes. Since you can start with a PDF or a blank page and then write on it with your finger or stylus. Oh, and if you don’t want to write the click on the page until the options come up and select the text option and type! And for those of you that want to see it larger, then it also has a box that magnifies the section you are working on or zoom in on the page. Let’s say you need to draw something out. You can do that too by clicking on the shapes button at the top and then draw the approximate shape and GoodNotes will refine the shape and make it look smooth.
One of the best parts about this app is that you can pull in a PDF and then export only the pages you want! That’s right, split the PDF’s!! You can export it to email, dropbox or another app like iCab. In case you are wondering, iCab allows you to upload your documents to a website using the “upload” option. You have to put the document you want to load into the iCab app first, but that is not hard. If you are in your email, push and hold on the document until the options appear for the apps to export it to and select iCab.
Ok, so let’s think about uses for your real estate business! What if a client sends you a large document and you only need the disclosures or a few pages to send separate? Pull the document into GoodNotes and then click on the boxes at the top left and then click the “edit” and select the pages you want to send, export, copy or print. What if you wanted to create a flyer? Add pictures, text and shapes to a blank document and then send it out to someone! What if you go to a training class and need a place to take notes? Start taking your notes, add a drawing, take a picture of something on the slide and keep all of that in one place!!
I’m not gaining anything nor am I a paid advertiser for this app, but it is a really great tool that I recommend for your business. Get organized and let me know how you use this app!
