We just hooked up Mixpanel to set up A/B testing for our site. We’re pretty new on Mixpanel and just started capturing user data and are going to start doing more testing. We picked Mixpanel because our CTO was familiar with it, and it was recommended by one of our advisors.
We were familiar with WordPress before using it for Revelr. It’s user-friendly and gets the job done. We’re now contemplating other options for trying to better integrate our blog into our site.
We also love Balsamiq; it’s so great for wireframing.
We really liked using InVision! Before InVision we would type out really long powerpoints and screenshot and comment on things. InVision made it easy to see things in the dimensions of the web page and what our site would look like. It’s great for seeing a semifinal product.
GetResponse seems a bit less intuitive than MailChimp and SendGrid in terms of figuring out how to create lists, upload subscribers, or create new segments within a list. We’ve had to upload different segments for the same list for campaigns, whereas MailChimp and SendGrid made it easier to duplicate segments and campaigns. But we just started using GetResponse, so we may adjust to it as we gain a little more experience with it.
Handshake is integrated with a lot of different campus job boards and sites. It’s good for targeting specific schools, where we might want to recruit intern candidates.
We used WayUp in the past when it was lower cost (at around $5 per candidate), but when we looked at it again for our needs for this summer, it had gotten a lot more expensive. When we did use it, we weren’t thrilled with the quality of the candidates, but that was probably because the company was so early at that point. We’d imagine the pool of candidates is better now that they’re bigger.
Clubhouse is like Asana meets Trello, and it’s nicely integrated with Slack. We used to use both Asana and Trello; Asana was more of a list, and Trello was a board. Clubhouse is right in between being a list and board.
