Freelancers keep track of a gazillion different things at once. JumboTask eases this burden by getting you organized and online!
Many studies have shown that the #1 way to reduce stress, better client relationships, and improve your chances for success are to organize, organize, organize!
We know this all too well. We were freelancers too at one point. The trickiest thing was to keep track of everything… People calling and asking about your services, referrals from friends, existing clients and their needs, projects, deadlines, suppliers, and on and on.
We tried using the webapps available out there but they seemed to all be built for a 100 users. Things were tough to learn and they all had tons of functionality no freelancer would ever need. We wanted something built just for us.
Our solution? JumboTask!
It’s online so its always available and easy to learn.
It’s built for freelancers so its not as big and bulky as those webapps made for groups.
It’s not expensive, plans start at $5/month
Track everything in one place
Still not convinced? How about this? We use JumboTask to run our company too!

Add to that the Word documents for estimates and other correspondence necessary to run a business and it’s not difficult to get an idea of the time wasted trying to pull it all together.
Built specifically for freelancers, jumbotask.com will give you all the tools you need to streamline your working practises in one place. With three price options to choose from as well it won’t break the bank.

Lead and client capacity increase with the starter and jumbo plans at $5 and $15 a month respectively. The jumbo plan offers unlimited lead and client numbers and 2GB of file storage space as well.
If you think of the stages involved from project lead to completion, and the record keeping necessary to make sure it not only goes smoothly but gets billed correctly too, this app has it all covered. Lead tracking moves seamlessly to quote and estimate creation and these can be instantly turned into invoices for successful outcomes. Every element relating to the client can be easily tracked including billable hours and product purchases making sure the eventual invoice misses nothing out.
The site also comes with a payment portal allowing clients to settle by PayPal or credit card, and by...
