UltraSMSScript: Buy A Complete SMS, MMS, and Voice Marketing Platform With API

Starting a text message strategy can be a daunting implementation process. Believe it or not, carriers are largely manual even today… submit paperwork, have your data retention and privacy policies reviewed, sign off on SMS permissions. I’m not trying to understate the importance of compliance with this medium, but the frustration of migrating or integrating an SMS solution can be quite frustrating for a permission-based, legitimate marketer. The process for SMS Marketing is quite a

Convert Pro: Lead Generation & Email Opt-In Popup Plugin for WordPress

Given the dominance of WordPress as a content management system, it’s surprising how little attention is actually paid in the core platform on actual conversions. Virtually every publication – whether it’s a business or a personal blog – looks to convert visitors into subscribers or prospects. However, there’s really no elements within the core platform to accommodate this activity. Convert Pro is a comprehensive WordPress plugin that offers a drag & drop editor, mobile responsive

Wishpond: Making Waves in Lead Generation and Automation

There’s a storm on the horizon in the marketing automation industry. Barriers to entry for new platforms are getting lower and lower, mature platforms are being swallowed up by enterprise marketing platforms, and those left in the middle are in for some rough seas. Either they pray they can depend on their customer-base to look attractive to a buyer, or they need to drop their prices – a lot. One disrupter in the industry that

Smart Ways to Combine Content Marketing with SEO

The folks at Blogmost.com developed this infographic and named it Little Known Ways to Build High Quality Backlinks in 2014. I’m not sure I like that title… I don’t think companies should focus on building links anymore. Our local search experts at Site Strategics like to say that new strategies require earning links rather than actively building them. More importantly, I believe this infographic combines a ton of tools and distribution sites where you can

Zapier: Workflow Automation for Business

I never realized that I’d have to wait 6 years before we’d begin seeing applications that intelligently visualized application programming interfaces… but we’re finally getting there. Yahoo! Pipes launched in 2007 and had some connectors for manipulating and connecting systems, but it lacked integration with plethora of web services and APIs that were exploding across the web. Zapier is nailing it… enabling you to automate tasks between online services – currently 181! Zapier is for
