Top tools our clients love

Communications is about more than just innate skills – the tools we use can make a big difference too!

At Think HQ, we’ve tried and tested countless project management and communications programs over the years. Here are some of our current favourites, used by many of our clients.


Best described as Google Docs on steroids. From spreadsheets that can organise your projects (social media content calendar and GANTT charts are our favourites), to HR and financial record keeping, Smartsheet is a top all-rounder. Users can invite others to edit, add and annotate spreadsheets, so it’s easy to track each other’s progress.


A fantastic social media management tool, this platform lets users schedule posts in advance, and provides analytics and suggested optimum times to publish content. Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Instagram accounts can be viewed simultaneously thanks to the clever dashboard interface. Highly recommended for clients who post social media content frequently, and want to maximise reach and engagement.


Anyone can be a basic graphic designer with Canva. Use its professionally designed templates and creative elements to produce high quality collateral like social media tiles, invitations, one-page information sheets, and flyers. Great for quick and simple jobs, Canva is an easily mastered tool, but for more complex and large-scale design tasks, nothing beats a professional graphic designer.
