4 ways to use Evernote for your hospital’s social media work flow
What's your favorite tool to make your day a little easier?
Over the last couple of years, I have been using Evernote for a number of
reasons. First, I started out using Evernote because it was free and it looked cool. Then, I started getting more diligent with it once I downloaded
the iOS app for both my iPhone and iPad. More and more, I found uses for this free app.
Then, I started making my move to "the cloud" about a year or so ago and I paid for the premium account. Now Evernote has become a great way to manage
a number of daily work flows, including social. Below you will find a view of how I now use Evernote in a new way.
How I use Evernote to manage my social work flow:
Use the unique Evernote email address attached to my account for all my social account email contacts. This way once someone DMs me on Twitter, it
flows right into Evernote.
I setup an "Inbox" and made it my default folder so all those notifications coming in fall into a folder where I can deal with them.
Once I review my Evernote Inbox, I can file them in any way I want. I have a hierarchy of folders, for most of the routine stuff, called
…wait for it…"notifications."
The great part of all of this is now (along with all my other notes in Evernote) my social notifications are searchable.
Other folders in Evernote that have a close tie to my daily life as a social media advisor:
HTML—I keep code I use over and over again in client CMSs handy this way
Best Practices—Great place to accumulate case studies, white papers, and best practices
Screen Shots—OCR searchable graphics and images—how great is that.
