|Name: Chris Brogan
Location: Boston, MA
Profession: President, New Marketing Labs
Chris Brogan, president of New Marketing Labs, is a highly respected and sought-after social media evangelist, well known for his expertise and advice on how to use social media and social networks to build relationships and deliver value. An Evernote user since day one, Chris has been “Evernoting” and remembering all the details of his life since uncovering the app on TechCrunch two years ago. Since then, Chris’s Evernote account on both Mac and Android platforms has proven to be an invaluable tool in his hectic and non-traditional career…and life.
As a bestselling author and sought-after speaker, much of his time is spent traveling nearly 200 days of the year for some 110 speaking engagements. To say Chris Brogan is a busy man is an understatement and without Evernote, and his multiple “remember” files, there would be virtually no way for him to make sense of work commitments and travel details—and keep his sanity.
Evernote as Chris’s ultimate travel companion
With Evernote, Chris has a way to find his most valuable speaking notes and information, but perhaps most importantly, it keeps his chaotic “travel life” in check. He can organize and remember everything ranging from his various airport and hotel reservations and loyalty program numbers, to locations of restaurants and landmarks within each city to revisit or check out, to websites and bookmarked research to catch up on before speaking at a scheduled conference. Features like Evernote’s text-recognition come in especially handy for Chris’s travel notes, and, on rare and multi-sensory occasions, the audio notes. The app helps him access everything at a moment’s notice whether it’s via his laptop on the plane or his phone in a cab.
Chris Brogan’s Evernote tips
Here are the types of things that Chris saves into Evernote:
- Travel details: plane tickets, lodging, membership programs and passwords
- City’s points of interests: restaurants, landmarks, offices, hotels
- Client research: both current and potential and bookmarking of sites to read up on
- Contacts: keeping track of the high volume of people (both current and new) Chris encounters
