I really must learn not to poo-poo the value and benefit of certain things without first taking a really good look at what it does. Especially when it gives me vital information regarding what visitors are actually doing on my website.
I’m finding all kinds of cool software, tools and apps to share with you lately. A couple of them have actually been recommendations from others. Last week I told you about RecurPost, a free social media scheduling app that recycles evergreen content, recommended by one of my team members. This week’s is a very unique (and reasonably priced) CRM tool recommended by a prospective client, called Cloze. It’s the little beauty I mentioned in the Monday Marketing BizTip – on Tuesday live video I did.
I love tools and apps … technical tools and apps that is. And, this seems to be the time of year when products and services start rolling out their updates. Last week I covered a couple of updates on the social media front. This week I’ll share the latest updates on a couple of my favorite apps, Canva for Work and Beacon.
Social media and social media tools change and come and go at the drop of a hat. As much as most of us prefer consistency, it’s just NOT gonna happen. Today’s post is about a few random bits of social media updates for a couple of tools and apps. Some good, some not so good … it just depends on whether or not you use the tools and resources I’m talking about.
Many of you know I’ve been searching for the perfect to-do list app or program for quite a while now. I’ve tried quite a few of them, but nothing has rocked my boat. I need an up close in my face solution that’s in front of me all the time. You know the old saying “out of sight, out of mind?” Well that’s how it’s been with all of the previous so called “solutions” I’ve found.
I’m looking forward to traveling to Edmonton, Canada, later this week to attend the CAPS 2016 Convention (I’m in denial about what the temperature might be, so please don’t tease me). And thanks to three of my favorite business apps, I won’t need to worry about being disconnected from my business, because I’ve systematized things so all of my documents (not just the important ones) are accessible to me online.
All I need is my phone, really, and I have everything I will ever need, right at my fingertips.
Anyone who has ever read my weekly newsletter or blog posts most likely knows how much I love Skype. It IS my go-to for quick and easy communication.
If you don’t already use Skype, you might want to check it out. I use it for a multitude of reasons, on a daily basis.
Email and inbox clutter is something many business professionals struggle with on a daily basis, so I’m always interested when I see an app or program that claims to tame our email inboxes … especially when I see others commenting about how much they like a particular app or program. SaneBox is one of those programs!
Gmail initiated their new filtering system – priority email, social and promotional, but a lot of people didn’t like it, and it didn’t really help; so many of us still ended up with inboxes that look like the Wild Wild West. The idea behind SaneBox is to prioritize important emails and summarize the rest in an effort to save us from the drowning feeling we get every time we open our email inbox.
We all love our clients. And if we are smart business owners, we understand that our clients are the only reason we remain in business.
No clients. No business. It’s simple math.
The question is, do our clients know we love them and appreciate them? The bigger question is, do you ever TELL them you love and appreciate them?
There was a discussion the other day on Facebook about which messaging app(s) everyone was using, and why. Of course I have my druthers, but the conversation got me thinking about the various messaging apps available today, so I thought what the heck, that sounds like it might make a good blog post!
So, I pulled together 6 messenger apps I thought would be a good representation of what’s out there. I’ve tried all but one of them.
