Try It Friday – Evernote Quick Start

My Try It Friday video blog for today is a quick start guide for Evernote.

I had trouble getting started with Evernote. I simply did not have the time to read and understand how to get going; yet I wanted to use it as it has had great reviews and I got a free Premium Subscription from being a Wall Street Journal subscriber.

I felt that I needed a “stupid person” guide to getting started with Evernote; hence my video.  You may be just like me, too busy to figure it out but ready to try out Evernote, this video will get you started fast!

In preparing to make this video, I finally took the time to figure out how to create notes where Evernote transcribes my voice into a note that I can then email to myself or arrange in notebooks. This feature is unique. Even your smartphone or virtual assistant can’t replicate this feature. It is one of the best reasons for getting started with Evernote.

I have used this feature (speech to text) to create topics for blog posts as I read the newspaper, create lists for staff, or details of conversations I have had with a customer. Then I’ve used Evernote to store these notes in the Cloud – accessible from any of my devices. I even use Evernote to email me my own notes to add to a spreadsheet or further massage for other uses.

This video makes it super easy to get started with Evernote. After you do, then go to YouTube and watch more advanced videos on how to create Notebooks and use collaboration tools found in the Premium Subscription.

I am not being paid by Evernote. I just figured it out and wanted to share how to get started fast with this terrific application.
