Tools To Help You Succeed Online

Blink Chat

This app allows you to send instant messages to your Linkedin connections.

If you’re like me, then all of your colleagues are probably in Linkedin. Because of this app, you no longer have to put up with Linkedin’s traditional messaging feature where it takes a couple of hours or days (maybe even weeks) before you’ll get a reply.

This app is great for team collaboration, growing your client base through networking in Linkedin, and it’s a time saver too.

Here are some of its features:

  • One to one chat
  • Messages Delivery Status
  • Real time chat alerts and notifications
  • Invite your network connections

And there are a many more great features coming soon.

Linkedin

We all know how Linkedin is a social media platform for professionals and business owners.

Whether you’re looking to build a team who can help you grow your business, or even a client, this social media platform is where you should be at.

Evernote

Quickly becoming a staple among those who love making notes, Evernote helps you organize your idea into a document form and compiles and manages them for you for your future access. Evernotes’ strength also lies in its ability to sync your documents across different devices.

Google Docs

It allows you to save your work online so that you can work on it at a later time (among many others). This saves you a lot of memory on your PC. Another added value to Google docs is the ability to share your work with other people so that they can edit it online as you watch.

WordPress

WordPress is hands down the best platform that you can use for creating a website. This CMS is intuitive, very easy to use, and very affordable.

Tools To Take Your Business To The Next Level

The best businesses online run on a number of third-party technologies that help power their analytics, customer messaging, marketing funnel, search engine optimization and social sharing.

KISSmetrics.

Your customers have unique behaviors. To better understand how they interact with your website, use KISSmetrics to identify sections of your online store that are ‘sticky’, where users spend a lot of time engaging with your content and products. Discover where visitors drop off and use those insights to test features and copy in order to make those pages irresistible.

The company prioritizes the customer funnel, so you can better optimize your digital marketing efforts. Don’t get hung up on vanity metrics such as clicks and visits. KISSmetrics provides smarter analytics so you can convert more visitors into paying customers.

Moz.

Even with the meteoric rise of social media, organic search (primarily Google) still drives between a third and a half of overall web traffic.

Moz provides an inbound marketing platform that makes it easy to understand your site’s SEO strengths and weaknesses. Understand where you receive backlinks, how you rank for keywords, the quality of your content, and issues with or opportunities for improvement in your site’s architecture. Plus, participate in Moz’s forums to network with other marketers who can teach you a thing or two about how to get more from your marketing dollars.
