HubSpot is pretty good. It picks up all the details of a contact whenever you add in their email address. It saves a lot of time. Their CRM makes it easy to look up and organize what you want to see in your reports. I like that you can organize everything in one place to get it together with your marketing campaigns.
We have Slack integrated with a lot of things like Google Calendar, Bitbucket, and Trello. We really like that it integrates with so many different apps. It seems like the possibilities with Slack are endless.
We’re posting content on Medium as we work on our company blog. We’re using Medium because it’s great for tech stories and personal development. There’s a community of entrepreneurs and techies on Medium making it the right place to place content for potential customers.
You can make great mockups with Axure. It’s very interactive, unlike Balsamiq which is very static. You can really create the flow of your designs. It’s not just a concept that shows links to pages. Axure mockups are very helpful when discussing the product with developers afterward.
We use HubSpot for email marketing automation and analyzing the stages of our leads. We’re using it in combination with their CRM; we like contacting businesses directly for a more personal touch, instead of doing extensive email campaigns.
We’ve built an open source platform for HR and recruiting. It’s HR management, recruiting and onboarding in one place. It combines everything we need for candidates and employees, with easy to generate templates.
Our recruiting solution can create detailed reports based on the skill of the candidates and their level of experience. We’ll be integrating soon with LinkedIn to get details from candidates automatically. It’s easy to get any data we need about our candidates and contact them.
We use Evernote to share ideas and notes between each other. Small things start on Evernote and then continue as a card or board on Trello.
We use Zapier for some minor integrations, nothing complex. But it’s a very cool tool that saves a lot of time!
We like to contribute to open source projects on GitHub, and contribute with our own libraries and tools that also reside there.
Trello is our number one choice internally for project management. When we work with clients and developers, we align ourselves with their management practices. But Trello is our go-to choice for all in-house project management.
Hootsuite is pretty good. How did we pick them over other options? We followed them on Instagram and really liked their company culture. We felt connected to them, and when it was time to choose, Hootsuite was the automatic choice. I also use Buffer personally, and I like that tool, but I like Hootsuite better for a team.
