Trello is an interesting, free tool that was shared with me by Doug Schmidt who apparently got the idea from one of Seth Godin’s blog or communities. Thanks Doug.
Full disclaimer: I have only been using Trello for about two weeks.
I am using it for building a set of lists which I use to keep track of where prospects are in my sale development cycle for my EOS practice. Solo use is not what it was meant for but I am very pleased it with it as a free cloud solution for CRM. Think of it as SalesForce lite.
Very easy user interface. Very intuitive. I am also experimenting with it as a collaborative tool for me and an assistant. So far so good. We may add others into that effort. This is where Trello is meant to excel. I’ll let you know how it goes.
If after watching the video, you decide to try Trello out, please let me know what you think about it and how you are using it.
Joel Spolsky founded FogCreek Software because he couldn’t find a great place to work in NYC for software developers. FogCreek created Trello. He writes a blog here. Joel is the speaker in this six minute YouTube video.
