19 Apr Must-Have Virtual Office Tools for Literary Agents (Podcast #2)
An Introduction to 2 Seas Agency’s Virtual Office Tools
By Marleen Seegers, Co-Founder of 2 Seas Agency and Host of The Make Books Travel Podcast
April 19, 2020
As Senior Agent Chrys and I discussed in the previous episode, a virtual office set-up enables 2 Seas Agency to maintain business as usual during the current COVID-19 lockdown, and also during our frequent international travels during normal, as in, non-pandemic times.
Now, how do we manage this remote office, practically speaking? We like keeping things simple and efficient. Besides being well-organized and very meticulous – which we, as rights sellers, have to be! – all it takes are the cloud-based virtual office tools and apps that I will discuss in this second episode of The Make Books Travel Podcast.
This episode is going to be a little different, since I will be the only one talking. I thought about continuing my interview with Chrys, since she uses most of the tools and apps on a daily basis as well. But I wanted to record this episode quickly after publishing the first one, which happened only a few days ago. Many listeners of that episode showed interest in knowing more about the practical side of our virtual office, and I wanted to keep the momentum going.
So, here I am, ready to walk you through the list of tools and apps that constitute the framework of 2 Seas Agency’s business structure. You can also read my article about our virtual office set-up here.
Thank you for listening, and enjoy!
