Are you a law firm owner who is overworked and needs more support? In this episode of the Maximum Lawyer Podcast, Tyson Mutrux discusses the crucial role of delegation in law firm management.
Are you in need of some tools to upgrade the way you work? In this podcast episode, Becca Eberhart, CEO at Maximum Lawyer, shares tips on simplifying common tasks using digital tools.
In this day and age, there are dozens of tools to use to make working better and more efficient. Becca shares 3 tips on how to use digital tools to your advantage. One tip is to use the website Unroll.me, which is a tool to tackle getting rid of spam and help unsubscribe from unwanted emails. This tool allows for you to take control of what comes into your email account. The second tip is to use Moonpig.com, which is a website that will help out with sending cards to people. For example, if you have a busy life and lose track of important dates, put that date into Moonpig, personalize the card and it will be delivered to whoever needs it.
The last tip Becca provides is to use a free Amazon price tracker called Camel, Camel, Camel. We live in a time where the cost for everything is high, so this tool allows you to receive price drop alerts for your favourite items. This will allow you to decide when it is time to buy a product.
Listen in to learn more about these great tools!
Speaker 1 (00:00:01) - Run your law firm the right way. The right way. This is the maximum Lawyer podcast. Lawyer podcast. Your hosts, Jim Hacking and Tyson Matrix. Let's partner up and maximize your firm. Welcome to the show.
Becca Eberhart (00:00:24) - Welcome to another episode of the Maximum Lawyer podcast. I'm Becca Eberhardt, CEO at Maximum Lawyer, and today I'm doing a quick episode on three things that I recommend that can help you simplify a few things that a lot of us do quite often. So my first recommendation is going to be unroll dot me. So that's unroll dot me. Maybe your promotional or spam email has gotten out of control, but you don't even know where to start with tackling that daunting task. Unroll me helps cut out a lot of time and simplifies this task with Unroll Me. You can unsubscribe from unwanted emails. Keep or roll up your emails into a condensed version. It takes a couple of steps to set this up, and then the site does the hard work for you. First, you'll have to set up two step verification, then create an app password to allow enrollment to have access to your email account.
Becca Eberhart (00:01:25) - The site does walk you through these two steps, and then after that is when they will find all of your subscriptions. On my personal email account, I had 65 subscriptions, which is way more than I thought I had. I honestly thought I had a dozen, so I was really excited to unsubscribe from about 75% of them. After you go through your initial list of subscribed emails, you'll be able to come back to your account and see new subscriptions as they creep in, and then review them and unsubscribe, or roll them up every now and then. When you feel like your inbox is getting out of hand. If you decide to try this, you should share in the Facebook group how many subscriptions you had and we'll see how crazy this gets. Next up is a site called Moonpig. Yes, that's moonpig.com. This is a website. You can go in and put all of your birthdays, anniversaries and holidays that you want to send cards to, even a wedding. You're invited to but can't make it to, and it will send you an email 14 days before each event.
Becca Eberhart (00:02:30) - This gives you enough time to select a card. You can personalize them and then send it in time for an on time arrival. They also have an AI text generator. In case you're not good at thinking of what to write inside the card, you can even handwrite your message. You just write what you want in the card on the piece of paper and take a photo of it. And then you upload that photo and they apply your writing inside the card. When you set reminders for cards you want to send, you also get 20% off of your card. Cards are such a great thing to automate like this, so you can not have to carry the mental load of remembering every important birthday or anniversary or holiday that you like to send cards for by entering the dates in. Once you'll get reminders on repeat and never have to personally remember another special event, or save this errand until the last minute and hope it ships in time to make it not look like you waited until the last minute to run to the store to find a just okay card and send it out.
Becca Eberhart (00:03:34) - Moonpig will be your assistant, reminding you ahead of time and being able to personalize your cards, text, and even pictures makes you look extra thoughtful. Finally, my last recommendation is camel, camel, camel, which is a free Amazon price tracker. Here's my issue with Amazon A lot of the time, deals or discounts on Amazon are not real. This was just a theory I had until last year. During Amazon's Prime Day deals in July, I looked up a handful of items a couple of weeks prior to the prime days that I would be interested in buying if there was a great deal on them. I took screenshots of them so I would know it was the exact same item and what the price was. Two weeks earlier, one item had the read Prime Day Deal banner and was the exact same price it was listed for two weeks earlier. Another was listed as a Prime Day deal as 54% off, though two weeks earlier it was $22 and on Prime Day it was $18. They just made the listed price higher so that the sale appears to be larger than it was.
Becca Eberhart (00:04:41) - Another item actually cost slightly more than it did two weeks prior. Enter the website camel camel camel.com. You can get price drop alerts, or you can see the price history of an item. To set a price drop alert, you just enter your desired price you want to pay and once the price drops to that price or lower, they'll send you an email notification. Or if you want this information at your fingertips, you can add the Camel Riser browser extension to see the price history. As you browse in Amazon, you'll see the highest price. It's been the lowest price it's been, and the current price. This can help you determine if you don't need something right now, then you may want to wait. Until the price gets back down closer to that lowest price. That's it for this week. I hope you find these recommendations helpful and they can simplify a few things in your life.
