8 Tools You Need to Make the Writing Process Vastly Easier

It’s been 20 years since Bill Gates declared “Content is king,” but his statement has never been more true. And content is especially important for startups—unlike established companies with huge marketing budgets, earlier companies have to maximize every dollar they spend on getting the word out. Banner ads often don’t work, and other types of advertising are expensive. So whether you’re a founder, marketer, or growth hacker, you’re probabl...

Early Stage Startup? You'll Like This Minimalist Help Desk Software

No matter how solid your product is, you’re bound to get the occasional unhappy, frustrated, or annoyed customer. Like this one:  When you get a message like this, would you rather shoot them a speedy but ineffective response (“So sorry you’re having trouble—we’re working on it!”) or a slow but effective one (“Figured out the issue, you should be able to log in now!”)? As bizarre as this may sound, you’d actually be bet...

Breaking Down Your Business Stacklist

For this Stacklist interview I spoke with Brad Farris and Jill Salzman, the podcast hosts of Breaking Down Your Business, where they tackle complex smalls business questions. They find answers the same way we do here at Stacklist, by speaking with real entrepreneurs and business owners.

Microsoft Planner Enters the Project Management Toolscape

We love hearing about new tools (if you couldn’t tell). On June 6 when Microsoft announced its launch for Microsoft Planner, I was interested immediately. A little about me, my name is Danny and I do marketing research at Stacklist.

I read their blog and was wooed by their showcase video.Looks a lot like another popular tool we know and love, doesn’t it?I’m ta...

6 Advanced Techniques That'll Change How You Use Google Docs

Google Docs is simple—so simple that two seconds after you decide to work on a file, it’s open and you’re typing. That’s probably why it’s heavily favored by Stacklist startups in their early stages. After all, when a team is young, you don’t need the most robust or complex option. On the contrary, you should opt for the intuitive, usable tool until you’ve definitively outgrown it.“Google Docs is practically invisible now,” ...

4 Hiring Tools to Up Your Team's Diversity

Diversity has been top-of-mind for tech companies in recent months. Slack, Dropbox, and Pinterest have so far as to release diversity reports, attempting to offer a transparent look into the demographic makeup of their employees (in a nutshell: women accounted for, on average, less than 40% of staff at these three companies, and minorities accounted for roughly half). Diverse teams are key for startups. Research shows that diverse teams lead to more effectiv...
