We switched to HubSpot from Salesforce. Salesforce was too expensive for what we needed. I think that HubSpot will scale well. Already as it is now, it is almost as customizable as Salesforce. As soon as they will implement custom objects, it will be just as good.
We use Slack--it’s been great. We get marketing notifications every time someone reaches out to us. We use some of the plugins apps and we also set up our own custom Slack notifications settings.
We moved everything to Google Drive from Dropbox. It has everything we need. We did it because I didn’t like to have copies of all of our files on every computer locally. Also, with Dropbox, not everyone had access to the documents because it is expensive to open new accounts. Google Drive is fairly intuitive.The collaboration tool of Google Drive is so much better.
Parrot QA is an automated browser based testing framework that we use to make sure the UI doesn’t break.
At Scripted we match businesses with writers. We make it easy it with a flat membership fee. We screen every single writer that gets accepted. Most of our customers are small businesses that need a post every week.
