And Co: Automatic Invoicing For Freelancers

Freelancers never have it easy, there I said it. Hustling everyday for clients, delivering work on time, and then hustling some more to make sure you’d ride out the wave of “feast-famine cycles” as Corey Pemberton of BidSketch calls it. Almost always in between, you’d have to blog for yourself, ensure that your presence on social media helps you build relationships (and also gets you more business), and maintain a steady outflow of emails that are built to nurture your existing and potential clients. Although you might not like it, you’d also have to chase invoices because not all...

Web Engage Journeys: Reimagining Marketing Automation

The one thing that’s sorely missing on most websites today is engagement (I won’t be surprised if this blog also scores low, I must admit).

Web Engage is a complete suite of website engagement applications that help you conduct surveys, generate leads, recognize and semi-automate the process of engaging visitors on your website and/or blog.

Grab This: Top eCommerce Management Tools

We all want better deals. They love convenience. Obviously, no one likes to wade through rough commute for a couple of hours, struggle to find a parking spot, and then put in the hours for shopping.

They don’t like the web pages to load, they wouldn’t like it if your ecommerce website feels like a ghost town, and it’d not be nice if they...

Snitcher: Smart B2B Lead Generation Off Your Website

If you ever build a website, it must be built for a single reason: to generate leads. Beyond that, you could use your blog (tied in nicely with your website) to build traction, engagement, and get inbound traffic that’s relevant. All that traffic gets into the top of your funnel leading to more sales (in the future). On average, only 3% of your website visitors ever leave their contact information, take some sort of action, signup for something you give away (such as a free guide, access to your resource page, or take you up on your free trial)....

Chirp For Chrome: It’s Time To Up Your Twitter Game

The way things go, your engagement on Twitter takes on a new, shiny stride when you start sharing quotes (and this is best only after real human-to-human engagement on Twitter). Quotes are short, impactful, and make for great pieces of content. You only need to ask Marsha Wright what “quotes” do for her Twitter feed. But there are so many quotes, eh? Every book, eBook, blog post, and tons of other sources have some awesome people saying “incredibly-good-stuff-that’s-too-cool-not-to-post”. How do even begin to start curating quotes? Taking notes and building a repository of quotes that you like is one...
