Helpful Reminders

Do you sometimes have trouble remembering to make a call at 2 pm? Do your client’s forget your meetings? Do you fail to follow through on your new marketing plan?

Last week, two different bloggers pointed to two different tools to help with reminders.

First up is a service called Oh, Don’t Forget and it was mentioned by Matt Homan at the [non]billable hour. Oh, Don’t Forget allows you to send a text message to any phone at a predetermined date and time. This is great for reminding you to make a call or leave for a meeting if you know you are going to be in the middle of something. Of course, you could also use it for more interesting purposes, such as setting it to go off during a meeting that you fear will be boring and drawn out.

The second reminder service was mentioned by Julie Fleming-Brown at Life At the Bar. This service is called HassleMe. HassleMe explains their service as:

Not eating enough fruit? Forgot to feed the fish again? Need a little help keeping your New Year’s resolutions?
Tell us what to hassle you about, and we’ll nag you via email at semi-unpredictable intervals.

This is a great opportunity to have someone remind you to drink enough water, go to the gym, or call a referral source every week just to say hello.
