Canva is a great tool for designers to do their magic in a flash. The simplicity of the design and the plethora of images make creating that much easier. Canva simplifies the process and saves time.
 
Email Marketing

“I love Google Inbox! It lets me bounce things back into my Inbox and it definitely makes me more productive.”
-Holly Cardew, Founder and CEO of Pixc
 
Google Inbox is an effective tool to get you off email and back to work. In essence, it gives you the information you need without making you go through tons of emails. You can browse photos without opening a message, check reservations at a glance, and similar messages are bundled together.
 
Google Inbox makes you rethink email organization. Building off of Gmail’s structure, Google Inbox refines the inbox and the inbox experience so it is more user friendly and a more productive use of time, getting you off your phone screen (and then back to your computer screen).
