Want smart growth hacking tools that actually make your job easier?
Don’t waste your time on sites that haven’t been updated in years or programs that cost more than they deliver.
Here are 5 tried-and-true tools to take your marketing strategy to the next level.
- Pave AI
Make data-driven decisions to increase your ROI with Pave AI.
Pave AI turns your Google Analytics data into usable insights, showing you which strategies are working for you and which aren’t. Their algorithms look at over 16 millions possible combinations across every marketing channel to find the most relevant insights.
Your report is personalized to your goals, whether you’re aiming for more eyes on your blog or more sales on your e-commerce site.
It takes seconds to set up and will completely change how you approach your website’s metrics.
2. Never Bounce
The worst part about sending email blasts?
Finding out that most of them never reached their target.
Never Bounce makes sure that your email campaigns actually go to their intended recipients by verifying the email addresses beforehand. You can upload your entire mailing list and Never Bounce will give you a clean list of active email addresses.
Their dashboard shows you which addresses are safe to send to and which are a definite no-go, checking each address up to 75 times to make sure no duds fall through the cracks. Results are broken into 5 simple categories, with over 25 advanced metrics behind them to ensure your email gets as many eyes on it as possible.
If they don’t get your bounce rate below 3%, they’ll refund you the difference.
Whatruns has one job: telling you what technology any website uses.
That’s anything from how they track their visitors to their WordPress plugins to the CDN they’re hosted on.
You can even set notifications for a website, so you’ll always know when they add something new or drop an old feature.
You aren’t dropping thousands of dollars on this Chrome extension.
It’s totally free.
Seriously. All of your competitor’s tricks of the trade can be right at your fingertips for nothing. You can’t tell me this one isn’t worth a try.
If you’ve shifted from email to Facebook Messenger, then Botletter should be at the top of your list. They boast a super easy setup process: connect to your company’s Facebook page, set your greeting message, and you’re golden. You can then schedule more messages to go out on whatever timeframe you want.
Don’t worry — going through Botletter won’t make your content look canned. Their customizable template allows you to add in whatever you’d like to catch your readers’ eyes. You can even filter your subscribers out by everything from subscription date to gender, so your messages can be tailored to your audience.
And when all is said and done, they’ll show you the numbers for every Messenger campaign — click-through rate, open rate, even the details per subscriber.
They say their open rate averages at 80% — for numbers like that, Botletter is worth giving a go.
A good website is more than just good copy.
It has to run well, too.
Dareboost provides a full breakdown of your website’s performance, showing you both where you’re weakest and what you can do to improve. It’ll also constantly monitor your website for loading time and quality issues, so you can rest easy knowing your website is running at its prime.
And if you want, you can even compare your website to your competitor’s to make sure that your load times aren’t driving customers to their site, not yours.
They’ll give you your first report for free, so you can take a peek at how your website is doing to try it out.
While these tools can totally revolutionize how you run your business, don’t get bogged down with apps and metrics you don’t need. Take advantage of those free trials to make sure these tools can actually become part of your work flow and not just another subscription to pay for.
Pick the tools you need and let them do the grunt work, so you can focus on the parts of your job that can’t be automated.
