Treat Yo Self To The Best Tech of the Week #4

By chirosushi In Chiropractic Success, Chiropractic Technology

Cassette 2.0

Blurb: Record, transcribe & search user interviews, meetings, calls

What does the Founder say

“Cassette is the best way to record, transcribe & search important conversations, like user interviews, meetings, lectures & video calls. With almost no overhead, you can record, transcribe, and bookmark key moments – and share it all with your team.” Angad Singh

What do we think?

Cassette looks pretty bad-ass for the Chiropractic entrepreneur. We could see this tool being used at Chiropractic seminars, dictation in the office, content creation and even just thought processing during the day.

Tagwin

Blurb:Instagram contests & giveaways made easy

What does the Founder say:

“We built Tagwin as a way to support the many people on Instagram who currently run contests and giveaways on Instagram using spreadsheets and random number generators Tagwin works by authenticating with the Instagram API and providing a simple interface to configure and launch a contest. Using the platform, you can run a contest that collects entries by a specific hashtag (i.e. #MyContestHashtag) or enters all of your Instagram account followers as entrants (i.e. “Follow to Win”). You can also require additional actions by your participants such as requiring them to follow you on Instagram, like a specific post, or a few other options. Our launch offer is running your first contest for free, so please give it a try!” – Danny Wood

What do we think?

You can’t go wrong with offering a first contest for free and we know where the traffic is going when it comes to Instagram. We’re still big fans of any giveaway where you can:

  • Collect Emails
  • Drive Traffic
  • Get Social Shares

Teambit

Blurb:Engagement platform to make your team the best it can be

What does the Founder say:

“Teambit is an engagement platform that helps you ensure your team performs as best teams in the world. Today teams use the same principles to measure and improve performance and engagement as industrial age factories. But all those annual 100-question surveys, way too formal performance reviews and lack of praise don’t really work for modern workplaces. Teambit wants to change that. It’s designed to make continuous feedback, be it in a form of 1-1 feedback, public praise or feedback gathered via surveys, a daily habit. It’s a lightweight, automated and fun. And it’s just a beginning” – Alex Potrivaev

What do we think?

F**K YES!

Now there are other platforms out there – TapMyBack was one we’ve used previously – but the UI of this platform looks super clean and looping features look sweet.

Pretty Links

Blurb:The easy way to customize Facebook link previews

What does the Founder say:

Since July 18th Facebook prevents users from modifying title, description & image when sharing link posts. This was quite useful for marketing and other use cases when you can’t easily update the meta information of a page you would like to share. Pretty Links is a URL shortener that works around this problem. If you are not happy with the Facebook sharing preview you can enter the URL of the page you want to share and set your own title, description and thumbnail image to be used.

What do we think?

We’re not seeing any issues on business pages but on personal pages this seems to have been a problem for a little bit.

Any marketer should like to have control over their meta, images and headline copy – and most marketers like to tweak and A/B test without screwing with the hosted site. This looks promising.

Teams for Wire

Blurb:Secure team messaging

What the Founder says:

“Everything on Wire is secured with end-to-end encryption — chats, calls and shared files. Even we at Wire can’t see what’s being said and sent.

With headquarters in Switzerland and servers in the European Union, Wire is the best choice for businesses that value security and privacy.”

What do we think?

Slack is all the rage these days but it’s important to remember HIPAA and being secure with your communication – we suggest checking in with Dan McCoy and his team at TechSubluxation.com

Book Like A Boss

Blurb: Simple platform to sell your services & book appointments

What does the Founder say:

“Take Bookings. Make Money. An all-in-one scheduling platform for you to take appointments, sell your services and manage your business.

he last 18 months have been an incredible ride and I am so grateful to my awesome partners and our thousands of Bosses from around the world!

As an entrepreneur and business consultant I received multiple requests a week to pick my brain and buy me a cup of coffee. Being a nice guy, it was always awkward for me to tell them that in most cases I charge for my time. I wished there was an easy way I could just send them a link that did the selling and closing for me. A page that talked about who I was, what services I offered, showed them my calendar and allowed them to book and pay me all in one place. I searched and it did not exist. Sure I could have built it in WordPress, but even though I had built dozens of WordPress sites over the years it was no simple task.

Trying to combine many different plugins and hoping when they updated they didn’t throw off any of the others and making sure it was optimized for mobile etc. was just a time consuming and frustrating task so I never did it. Around that time I got an email from a friend who’s sister was a masseuse and was looking for an easy way to list her massages connected to her calendar and accept payments all in one place. At that moment I realized there was a real need for such a service that was hosted in the cloud, optimized for mobile and was simple for anyone to use. Through a longer story my buddy @DovidYudkowitz, who in my 20 years of being in tech is one of the best developers I had ever seen, became available and so I pitched him the idea, he loved it and we were off to the races. A few months in we needed a world class designer and so @Lloyd_Schroeder came on board and the 3 of us have been bootstrapping to get us where the platform is today.     You can check out our 25+ Tutorials here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/…
