Find Influencers With Your Content

"Brands create a lot of content and post it on their owned media channels be it their website, blog or content hub. This is great but often it does not cut through all the noise out there to drive real impact with your target audience.

Knowing the most relevant digital influencers for your content gives you a competitive advantage to influence their sizeable networks. You can share your content with them safe in the knowledge that they are posting very similar content and are therefore more likely to share your content with their social media following.

Onalytica matches the proportional usage of nouns in your content against an aggregate of what an influencer has posted on Twitter over the past 12 months to return the most relevant influencers. This will identify many more relevant influencers than keyword searching across social media listening tools."

Author's note:

Influencer reachouts are one of the most popular form of content marketing available. With Onalytica you are able to promote your content with the help of carefully picked influencers, but you may also use them as experts in your future posts.

Exit Monitor

Turn Your Abandoning Visitors Into Customers

"When a visitor lands on your website, Exit Monitor begins tracking that visitor's mouse movement and velocity to determine their exact position on your page.

Our custom built visitor behavior learning algorithm and exit intent technology allows Exit Monitor to determine the exact millisecond a visitor leaves your page.

Once an exit intent has been triggered, Exit Monitor displays a targeted offer to your visitor. This gives you the ability to either capture a new lead or gain a sale.

Exit Monitor gives you the ability to drive more revenue to your business by leveraging customer data to capture more leads and turn visitors into paying customers."

Author's note:

There is nothing worse than bringing a lot of traffic to your website only to see it bounce, hard. Exit Monitor helps you convert some of visitors with an exit intent into sign-ups or whatever other conversion goal you want. A pretty good alternative to worn out staples.

Smart Marketing through Email Signatures

"Sigstr ensures that company branding is consistent, and the most relevant campaign is highlighted in every email sent.

Sigstr makes adding campaigns to your employees’ email signatures simple. After initial setup, signature campaigns update automatically across your entire organization anytime a new campaign is activated.

Updating employee signatures is notoriously time-consuming and unpredictable. Sigstr provides companies with a powerful tool to maintain consistent branding, manage contact information and ensure compliance."

Put your coworkers' emails to use. Personal emails are most trusted and you can leverage that fact in your marketing activities. A well composed e-mail signature will increase the brand awareness and might be a starting point in your conversion funnel.

A marketer's / growth hacker's life is a life full of subscriptions. Sometimes they are draining our budget even though we happen to use them less than we should. Trim is the perfect option to weed out needless subscriptions and save some buck.

 "Hey, I'm paying for that?"

The dead simple inline editor toolbar.

Control who can send you email.

"Spam, newsletters, coupons… it never ends. But what if it could? The problem is every time you give out your email address online, it's like giving out the key to your house. They can put anything in your inbox they want, and often they sell your address to others who do the same.

9 out of 10 emails people mark as "spam" are ones they once subscribed to.

Some we subscribed to but never read because it interrupts our work and clutters our inbox, some we get after a purchase made online, and some after a company sold our email address.

Right now, you have no way to control who can access your inbox. The best you can do is request to be unsubscribed. But it's your inbox. You should have the home field advantage."

Author's note:

A newsletter slave no more. Managing all subscriptions is rather arduous, that is why trottle helps us with our mailings and arranges them in a digestable form. Useful for anyone who is swamped with emails in their inbox.

Google Analytics Reports Everyone Will Understand

"Email Reports That Everyone In Your Company Will Understand
Google Analytics can be hard to digest. Picnic Metrics simplifies the data in an actionable dashboard and send you weekly emails with your most important stats. No code or developer is required.

Your Most Important Metrics, All-In-One Place
Navigating in Google Analytics is a pain. Everyone knows it. Audience data is in one tab while behavior data is on another page. In Picnic Metrics, it’s simple: everything is in one place."

Author's note:

Metrics are difficult to understand, especially for novice marketers. Even if you do get them, it is difficult to explain them to the rest of your team.

    This is a fantastic list, Piotr! Thanks for including Instapage as one of the best tools, especially for gathering leads from your various marketing campaigns. It’s important to have dedicated pages for every promotion you are doing so that you can target the exact audience and drive them to convert.

  • Kristina A.

    Nice list! There are other great A/B testing platforms for Google Play and Apple like TestNest, that provide users with deep user behaviour analytics, allow multivariate simultaneous testing, gives advance filtering system for devices, traffic source and date, and allows for configurable confidence settings :).


    Great list, thanks for sharing!

  • Matt Fenn

    Great list Piotr!
    Can I suggest another great tool that is designed to turn website visitors into customers, it’s called Jumplead and includes visitor identification, landing pages and conversion forms, email marketing and autoresponders, web chat, marketing automation and even SERP tracking.
    There’s a free plan to get started with and with plan prices a fraction of many services the ROI is great!

  • Gad Maor

    Great post Piotr, super important. Honored to be working with such great developers on App Store Optimization and to be on this list.

  • James

    The button link for Picnic is not working properly :)

    • Piotr Koczorowski

      thanks – fixed!

  • John Lombaerde

    I appreciate the effort to put this list together. I know it is hard to write a one size fits all list, but at the same time, it would be more helpful for small-scale entrepreneurs, small businesses and start-ups to know which of these services are free, or low-cost, and which cost thousands of dollars per month. It would save quite a bit of time for the small entrepreneur, that’s all I am asking is to have that information up front instead of having to dig into each website one-by-one. Thanks.

  • John Lombaerde

    sorry, how about a one to three-star review in terms of a recommendation on effectiveness, and another one for cost? Just an idea, sort of like a Yelp restaurant review, no?

    • Piotr Koczorowski

      Sure, will try to consider that in the future!

  • Sajib Mannan

    I use Quuu and love it. It’s a great tool for busy social marketing managers like me. It really helps you to cut down stress finding fresh updates for social media channels.

  • Juni Tebus
