"I'd also add Intercom. For customer support functions / CRM, its awesome. I have used Nimble extensively and its very powerful but also VERY NOISY if you turn on the social integrations. In fact, normal people may shudder at having their…"

Mobile First, Content First

Mobile first -- the principle of approaching digital design from mobile form factors first, then accommodating larger form factors afterwards -- is a buzz term. It turns on its head the old status quo of designing for desktops primarily, with mobile as an afterthought. The term trips glibly off tongues everywhere now, but don’t scoff at its current trendiness. You might miss the fact that it’s a god-send to content strategists and UX designers.Mobile is becoming -- has become -- the main way…See More

Affordable CRMs That Work for Startups and Small Businesses

Has your company grown to the point that it needs some structure and organization around its sales processes? Do your existing ad-hoc collection of online tools not cut it anymore for supporting sustained outreach to clients and closing deals? I recently found myself helping a growing startup wade through the sea of customer relationship management (CRM) tools online to narrow in on a few that fit its needs and thought I would share some of my research.Obviously, the right tool for a company…See More

Does the Tech Industry Have a Young vs. Old Problem?

There's a fascinating story just published on The New York Times, "Silicon Valley’s Youth Problem," that explores the many facets of the age divide in the heart of America's tech industry. Written by a Comp Sci graduate student with a few internships at hot new Silicon Valley startups under his belt, the article touches on many aspects of the new guard/old guard divide in an industry…See More

"There's also the footprint (energy/mfr/distro/materials) of devices and infrastructure, a lot of which is hidden now that it's "in the cloud". I realize this discussion is more focused on the direct human impact; but certainly…"

Towards a Smartphone That’s Better for Everyone

Look around you, and just about everyone you see probably has a smartphone. And if those smartphone owners were aware of the sweatshop labor in dangerous conditions and minerals which finance arms-buying, conflict and bloodshed that go…See More

Social Media: The Rise of Anti-Oversharing Apps

Could it be that we building up to a collective moment against oversharing? That social media posturing, "like"-chasing and follower-building have created a backlash and a hunger for less exposed, more targeted, and more authentic forms of connecting? Perhaps so, judging by the intense interest around apps like SnapChat, Whisper, and Avocado.SnapchatFueling the popular disappearing-photo messaging service's surge is how it has enabled many…See More

Social Media Engagement -- or How I Learned to Love Oversharing

It's a fun and fascinating part of my job to dream up of new ways to use social media for communicating and engaging with digital users. And with mobile devices, opportunities for social connecting are infused in every movement and moment. So much so that talk of social media addiction is sometimes greeted with a glazed-eyed blink before those eyes turn back to a Facebook screen. Obviously, some deep-seated psychological need is being tapped via social media. And of course,…See More
