ONDiGO is a new mobile app CRM for small business to quickly track conversations and tasks relating to their contacts.

Traditional contact relationship management systems can allow you to build better relationships with customers and potential customers. The problem? They’re really most useful for mid- to large-sized businesses, as you have to enter information into a large database. ONDiGO is a brand new CRM tool that launched this past month that solves this 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+.

Big Top Ballet, bringing gaming to an underserved demographic, women and girls that want to play a cool trippy game!

Ever since Apple made it possible for indie developers to sell their own games through the App Store five years ago, the Game Industry has undergone enormous disruption. Then followed Google Play, Amazon’s App Store, the Chrome Web Store, Facebook Games, etc. The list is growing for independent distribution. With this democratization of game publishing comes much competition, hence the number of apps and games available for smartphones and to play for free on-line. Large studios are beginning to feel the fierce burn of this market disruption and scaling back by reducing staff and adapting with new models.

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.

OurCrowd, a crowdfunding-VC hybrid reinvents entrepreneur funding in the Startup Nation.

This past October I took an intense trip to Israel where I met with leaders in the sizzling tech scene. Learning about technology in Israel was an incredible experience! Among those I met was Jon Medved, a bearlike, Berkeley grad from Santa Monica who moved to Israel at the onset of his career as a serial entrepreneur. Since then Jon has gone on to invest in over 100 start-up companies.

What do bloggers, vendors, and entrepreneurs all have in common? They want more website traffic, to bring more business! With the help of Translation Cloud, the endeavor is a little easier.

There are masses on the Internet who do not speak English and website owners who simply don’t translate their respective sites, thereby leaving untapped audiences. If the language barrier were eliminated, then information on the internet could spread much faster – the more people who read a blog or visit an online store in their own native language, the more likely it is that they’ll subscribe to a feed or purchase an item. Or better yet, it may keep them coming back and even bring their friends!
