How to avoid project failures using Milanote

Long email chains. Random DropBox and Google Drive links. Copy and images spread over loads of Emails and Word Docs.

Organising projects with clients can be an absolute nightmare.

And missing one small detail can derail projects and leave you vulnerable to not being paid.

This is why surveys have revealed that 43% of freelancers had projects fail in 2018.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. It’s situations like this that Milanote was built to avoid. Milanote is the tool for organizing creative projects.

In this article, we’re going to show you 3 ways you can use Milanote to avoid confusion with clients and improve the way you manage creative projects.

1. Collect everything in one place

The problem with traditional software for creative projects is that they tend to only support one type of content – google docs for text, Pinterest for images, Dropbox for files. As a result, work gets fragmented across tools and is harder to keep track of everything.

Milanote was made to support the way creative people work. It allows a range of different file types such as notes, tasks, images, files, video, and more.

So when a new project starts, use Milanote as your creative hub to gather all the important information in one place.

2. Organize your work visually

Milanote’s flexible drag and drop interface lets you arrange things in whatever way makes sense for your project – it really replicates the feeling you get working on a wall in a creative studio.

In the early stages of a project, designers will use Milanote to write creative briefs, make mood boards to set the visual direction for a design, and develop customer personas so everyone is clear on the target audience.

3. Collaborate with your team and clients

Milanote boards can be a private place to think, or a shared workspace for collaboration—you’re in total control of who sees what.

If you’re running a brainstorming session, you can collaborate in real-time. There’s nothing more exciting than seeing everyone’s ideas being added together.

And when you’re ready to share your work – you can invite your clients to leave comments, provide them read-only access, or export your work to send as high quality printable PDFs.
