LIVESCRIBE – Because some of us still write… Just do it sexier!

We came across this amazing diddy of a pen when I attended the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) about 3 years ago. Wifi and power was beyond sparse – imagine 200,000 tech people in one place for a week, and I simply needed a pen. God forbid right? I purchased a Livescribe so that I could at least legibly digitize my notes. It was an added benefit that I could record speeches as well. The process was seamless and I was comfortable being the total Geekette that I am (my family was overheard saying “Gosh now she even has an electronic pen!”), and I even began to journal more which was a goal.

It got even better – who would have thought that Livescribe and Evernote would find each other?! They did and they play nicely. Here are 3 Reasons why the Echo/ Evernote integration is a must have.

  • Livescribe has dedicated it’s existence to handwriting recognition technology. While Evernote’s is great, theirs is simply better. When you combine the two… Pow!
  • My social media marketing use case – The Pencast. Kind of a brilliant concept for people who like to write. As the pen records your writing flow, you can share notes as they were recorded – with audio. Then share them! In my new book on social media marketing (coming – January 13), I talk about selecting your brand’s social media marketing channels based on YOUR preferences. This ensures consistency (one of the most integral factors in building a solid following). If you are a writer – think about letting someone in on your process… Yep, that’s good!
  • Add supporting documents right from Evernote to your Pencasts – Video, Photos, Presentations, anything that can provide insight into your project.
