We're back with some tools that you should be using this July (and hopefully beyond). Every month, well highlight five tools, products, or resources that help you grow your business as a founder or make your life easier as a marketer. Without further ado, let's dive into it.


Email deserves a dust off. A renovation. Modernized for the way we email today. With HEY, we’ve done just that. It’s a redo, a rethink, a simplified, potent reintroduction of email. A fresh start, the way it should be.

There are few things in life more frustrating than email. If you haven't heard of Hey yet (how could you miss the VC's tweeting about it obsessively?) now is the time to check it out. It doesn't work with work email quite yet, but it does serve as an awesome alternative to your personal email. You can even forward email from various addresses into your Hey account to make the transition seamless. Some on the byDesign team have given it a go and like it so far. Be sure to lock in your name since it's still early!

Witeboard lets you create quick sketches on desktop, tablet, or phone in a few minutes and collaborate with your team real-time.

Traditionally, our team uses Miro to map things out visually (and we love it). But if you're in a quick meeting, need to demonstrate something that you can't quite put into words, or you just want to share your thoughts on the fly, Witeboard is the way to go. Real-time whiteboarding, instant sharing, no accounts required. It's the digital whiteboard with the most frictionless experience possible.

Seamless screen, microphone, and camera recording for Chrome and desktop. Share and embed anywhere.

We use Loom here at byDesign for almost everything. Whether it's pointing things out to clients, training our team, or just saying hello, it's the easiest way to share your screen and offer walkthroughs on the fly. Traditionally, it's quicker than writing out a long explanation and gives others the opportunity to see the exact thing you see, enhancing learning and understanding. At only $10 a month, it's a deal!

Sunsama organizes all the work you need to do each day in one place. It's like Trello and Google Calendar had a baby.

There's always been this disconnect between project management tools and your calendar. Due dates on your project board might not have been applied to your calendar, and a packed day of meetings didn't reflect the work that you still needed to complete. Sunsama is the perfect middle ground for bringing everything to one place. Stay on top of your events, while managing your workload and time-blocking for intensive tasks.
