This week AmericanExpress OPEN and MSNBC shared the favorite apps and websites used by seven small business owners to increase productivity, or just make business easier.


7 Apps and Websites for Your Small Business

Proprompter is an app for your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch that works like a teleprompter.  If you are making videos for your business and having trouble memorizing your script, Proprompter may be a good solution for you.

Flipagram is an app compatible with iPhone and Android that you can use to create short videos set to music with images that are stored on your phone.  You can share the videos via text, email, and social media.

Eventbrite is a website I use frequently.   You can create a landing page for your event and collect RSVPs and even payments by attendees.  It’s a great solution for any size event.

SendOutCards is near and dear to my heart.  Face it, people just don’t open e-mail anymore.  If you want to make an impression, you have to do something different.  SendOutCards is old-school: real paper greeting cards that are delivered by the U.S. Postal Service.  You create your own personalized custom greeting cards that you can send to one person or 1,000 in a few mouse clicks.  You can even include gifts!  SendOutCards is an easy to use automated marketing system that allows you to personalize each card so that you are reaching your “clients in a high touch way.”

I use SendOutCards to appreciate my Custom Furniture clients.  I like it so much, I added it as another income stream.  I’d be happy to show you how the system works!

ContactSync lets you sync your Google contacts with your smart phone.  I could not find a website for this specific app but a Google search for ContactSync did result in several possible matches.  I have an Android phone and my Google contacts are automatically synced.

AppointmentCore for InfusionSoft integrates with GoToMeeting, Google calendar and Free Conference Calling so you don’t have to manually update your calendar.

Mobit takes text messaging to the next level.  We all know that email marketing just doesn’t work anymore.  Mobit helps you connect with your clients with images, videos and responsive websites all via their smartphone.  A word of caution, be sure you have your clients’ permission before you text your marketing messages!

I am sure you’ll find at least one useful app or website from this list of 7 shared by AmericanExpress OPEN and MSNBC. Be sure to leave a comment below with YOUR favorite app or website.
