5 Game-Changing Online Business Tools
Do you often forget to chase-up influencers or PR agents after sending off your pitch?
Well well well, say hello to your new best business friend. #SeeYouLaterDenise
Mailshake is an online tool that you can use to plan out targeted email campaigns with short sequences so that you can spend more time reaping the rewards of marketing instead of chasing up people who don’t care about your business.
Seriously – how many times have you followed up someone via email, 2-4 times before completely giving up?
How much time and money did that effort cost you?
Mailshake is the solopreneur’s best friend because it allows you to utilise your time wisely by only putting you in touch with the people on your list of influencers or PR agents once they take action and respond to your email. Once they’ve responded? The sequence will ‘pause’ for them.
The whole time? It looks like you are responding, but it is actually the pre-programmed follow-up emails being sent out in a timeline that you can adjust.
To get your mitts on Mailshake, you’ll need to invest $29/month.
Now now brown cow, what about your Instagram results?
How on earth are you meant to:
- Promote multiple things on Instagram at once
- Track your Instagram marketing results
Linktr.ee simplifies your Instagram marketing by allowing you to create a custom landing page with your brand colors that you can send people to instead of the traditional Instagram bio link. You’ll be able to link to multiple pages including your pricing page, booking page and email opt-in landing page all with the one easy-to-copy-paste link.
If you are a one-person show right now and you are screeeaaaming out for some help with marketing (but can’t quite afford paying a human yet) we’ve got a suggestion that will knock your socks right off.
Email content created with your best social media content. Automatically.
Seriously, if Postie had lazerbeams shooting off their website it would only make them an ounce cooler than they already are.
Give it a go and see what you think for yourself, it is worth a play!
