Tuesday is definitely making a push for me too :-)

Rectification – all my other days are making a drop :(

My sales volume would in no way make that observation too relevant, a couple of extra sales in a day make the graph peak out!

I must say, watching the last video in the http://macaw.co/videos/ page is pretty convincing that this is an awesome tool in the making.

Is that the start of when “web developer” will become an obsolete position and everyone will lose their job?

You know, like the guys that used to sit in phone routing rooms and were plugging lines in appropriate slot to get people to talk to each other?

This highly reminds me of my big move 9 months ago from Switzerland to Australia, with my wife, 10-month old son and dog.

Overall a 3+ day journey, exhausting as hell (you don’t get to sleep much when you fly with a baby), but man looking back at it, this was a fun adventure.

Moving to the beach is always exciting – I miss my Swiss friends, snowy mountains, lakeside town.. but there is nothing like the beach and sunny weather to raise a happy family :-)

@subsolar well i use it as a project planning board – i create cards (tasks) for things that need to be done and assign them to the appropriate person. Things like setting up a hosting account, purchasing the domain name, searching for stock photos, etc.

In a website project, not 100% of the task rely on the developer. The client needs to provide texts and other assets, and that’s where i give them tasks on trello and assign these to them.

This way instead of dealing with 50+ emails i need to search within to get back to a conversation, we have everything in a single place within the board.

What i meant by the inefficiency of use with clients sometimes is that Trello takes some discipline from each user for things to work well. A card for a question about the navigation menu would do well with a title of “Navigation Menu Order Suggestion”, but instead some clients will call it “one more question please…”

Just like in a forum, that title doesn’t do much good.

Another example i had yesterday is a client, instead of creating a card with a checklist that can be ticked as we go through it, created a card with an attached Word document which contained a list of things to do. :-)

That said, i tend to give a few tips to clients for each improvements they could do with using trello, and they usually appreciate it and love using trello more and more as they understand its’ structure.

I still can’t believe trello is free – it’s incredibly powerful if used well.

Hope that answers your question!

May sales… be better than last month!

Whatever happens in May, i really, really hope it is better than April. Last month was devastating for me and i almost wonder if my account is still visible by users. My sales have dropped tremendously – and my latest item i put a lot of effort in has ZERO sales. Not even one!

I know there is easter and other distractions in April, but man that was really bad for me.

So far, zero sales in May too :-(

Trello is great – but i had some troubles trying to get clients to use it the right way. They would create a new card for each discussion and not use the useful features (checklists, attach documents, etc).

I personally use trello as my personal planner, things to do, and it works extremely great in that sense. If trained properly, it works great too in small teams and i absolutely love the speed of sync between all devices. Highly recommended.
