We use Agile CRM, and it has a really clean API that allows us to integrate it with the tools we need, such as Zendesk, FreshBooks, Quickdesk, and especially MailChimp. It allows us to easily import contacts, create campaigns, and segment groups. It’s a clean package for everything you need. I don’t think it’s perfect, but it works great across the board. My only problems with Agile are the sound effects, avatars, and icons they use; they’re pretty annoying! We chose Agile CRM over Salesforce because Salesforce is clunky, and too big for our needs.
We have been back and forth with Squarespace. We initially started with Squarespace, but my partner wanted to use Strikingly. Then we moved our content to WordPress, and now we are back to using Squarespace. We plan to have our blog on Squarespace.
We’re using MailChimp and have seamlessly imported a few thousand contacts this week. I’ve taken some of their tutorials online and it seems like I’ll be able to design my own templates. MailChimp looks clean and easy to use.
I’ve started using Wunderlist, and coordinating it with Evernote. You can create all your lists in Evernote, and then easily export them to Wunderlist. You also have the option to share them with other people, and Sunrise Calendar. Then the tasks show up when a certain project is due.
I use Evernote religiously. I’ve been using it personally for a long time, and it turns out it works nicely for business purposes as well. I love Evernote’s search capabilities, and pretty much everything about Evernote. Being able to create multiple notebooks in Evernote is great, but you can only make one subset. That’s probably my biggest complaint.
