Everywhere You Want It: Live Your Life With Evernote

Evernote

It’s no secret I’m a huge Evernote fan. I adore it because it means that no matter where I am, I’ve got my stuff with me. Everything that’s important to me — client data, current projects — lives in Evernote.

I’m always looking for new ways to use it. Here’s a way that’s new to me — outreach. I especially liked this idea, Track Link Building Outreach like a Boss with Evernote | Search Engine People | Toronto:

“You can easily use your notebook data to infer what your success rate is at different stages of the workflow. For example, if I had 10 leads in Pitched, and 10 leads spread out between Writing, Submitted, and Published, my success rate for lead pitching was 50%. The math-savvy marketer should find it easy to calculate a whole ton of other data from this.”

Very nifty indeed. Makes my use of spreadsheets (which I hate) obsolete.

Getting handwritten notes into Evernote

I think better with a pen in my hand, so I scribble on anything handy when I want to think, or just need to make a quick note.

Livescribe is handy for getting some of this material into Evernote. I’ve got the Echo pen, which means I need to sync manually, but it’s brilliant.

For those times I’m scribbling onto sticky notes or index cards rather than Livescribe paper, I snap a picture of the notes with my phone.

That works. However, this may work better — CamNote:

This allows the use of Evernote’s OCR to convert my handwritten notes to digital text in the background, making all CamNote notes searchable by Evernote. In the example below a search for the term “CamNote” instantly returns the appropriate note as highlighted.

CamNote for iOS is free, BTW.
