Traditional contact relationship management systems can allow you to build better relationships with customers and potential customers. The problem?

If you’re running a small business, ONDiGO allows you to build better relationships with your contacts from the convenience of your mobile phone.

pluralis

Using the platform Pluralis, you can connect with designs to optimize your landing page for conversions.

In January I ran a story about the innovative approach Pluralis takes regarding conversion optimization. The story was exciting to me as a website owners, so I wanted to do a short follow up! In a nutshell, Pluralis takes away the pains of running landing page optimization projects in-house. The company lets you source the creative work to a crowd of conversion optimizers, a growing professional community. Then Pluralis tests the landing page variations these optimizers create, using its built in A/B testing tool.

remote desktop google plus

If you provide tech support, you can now use the new Remove Desktop feature on Google+ to connect with your customers.

How frustrating is it when you’re trying to fix a tech problem for a customer over the phone? Now, Google has made it a little easier. In my opinion, the Hangouts feature is by far the best thing about Google+, and earlier last month, Hangouts got even better with Google introducing a remote desktop feature. If you have a business where you provide any kind of tech support, you can now do so easily on Google+.

Outbox’s intriguing new service collects your physical mail, then opens, scans, and delivers it via app or browser.

With a fleet of white Prius’ sporting giant, red plastic flags, Outbox’s “unpostman” will visit your home three times a week to collect your letters, bills, magazines and advertisements that had deposited there by official postal workers; they then get delivered to a warehouse where they are opened and photographed, and the resulting digital files are sent electronically to the recipient through the Outbox website or iPad or iPhone apps.

Try Dakwak to translate a website quickly; Dakwak provides easy and quick options for both machine and human translation. 

If you’re promoting a product to a global audience or you’re blogging for people all over the world, there’s no reason to have your website in only a single language. Although your site will receive traffic and most people around the globe will understand your content (if it’s in English), giving your users a localized version always helps to increase engagement on site. Imagine your website has visitors who speak Spanish; although they read English, if you were to offer them a Spanish version of your website, they’d develop a higher level of personal association (and loyalty) to it. You’d also be taking the edge over your competitors by offering your content in a number of languages.
