How I Increased My Billable Time by $2000 Each Month—While Actually Working Less

By Adam Tope

Like you, I hate keeping track of my billable time. I used to spend hours each week going through sent emails, my calendar and my notes to figure out what I did every day.I knew there had to be a better answer than notepads and start/stop timers.

The problem with the start/stop timer, for me, is that I’m constantly getting interrupted throughout the day. So I’d start the timer once in the morning—and realize 5 hours later it’d be running against the same task ever since, because I forgot to toggle it!

Time entry methods were equally ineffective—I am far too busy and multi-task far too much during the day to be bothered with the tedious effort of creating a new time entry when I change tasks.

Finally in 2007, I’d had enough—so I designed a product that’d automatically track my time and let me easily organize that time so I could accurately and easily bill my clients.

Our groundbreaking timekeeping product, Chrometa, is now available to Attorney at Work readers. You can get started with Chrometa for free—and be up and running in a matter of minutes.

Please start capturing your billable time automatically with Chrometa now.

Does Chrometa sound too good to be true? That’s typically the reaction attorneys—even Attorney at Work readers—have when they first hear about our product. The “magic” of Chrometa is that its data collector runs in the background of your PC and/or Mac, quietly making note of your activities. It’s like having your very own personal timekeeper. When you open or compose an email, Chrometa will capture that activity. Same for documents you draft, web research you do, and even phone and meeting time — everything is captured passively without you lifting a finger.

I’m very proud of the killer time keeping app our guys have built — it’s been a tremendous hit with solo and small firm attorneys, and has already been featured in The Economist, The Chicago Tribune, and most importantly, Attorney at Work.
