Swayy helps you discover the most engaging content to share with your audience on social media based on their interests and engagement. We give you relevant #hashtags and @handles so you can share better. Analytics show you what content is the most effective for growing your community.  – per their website.

Today I share my initial 5 minutes and come up with a “Meh.’ It did turn me on to some new blogs, and I found some interesting articles. For me it would be great if it integrated with bufferapp.com You can tie it into your twitter, facebook, and linked in profiles. If you’re stuggling to find content, this might be a decent tool (bufferapp.com also provides suggestions which I find good). The pricing starts at free and then goes to $9, $9 and up.

If I were sway I would have a 15 day trial using all the features that goes back to free if I don’t subscribe.

Today I talk about why I’m staying with nimble.com (a great tool for keeping up on all things social media).

I also found out that the Total WordPress theme is kind of a consolidated package of a number of plugins packaged as a theme. Yes, alone it is a good value of $58, but you can get some of these items such as the Visual Composer for WordPress for $28. The other thing that I find annoying is everyone is offering multiple sliders. How about picking the best one and providing it for us instead of us having to dig through three different sliders to figure out which one is the best.

Nimble Organizes Your Social Stream and Allows You To Make Better Connections

I’ve heard about Nimble from a few folks and its pretty cool. For it to get really powerful you need to give it permission to access things like twitter, facebook, Gmail, and Google+, and your calendar (and others if you want). Then it imports all of your contact. You can then go into your contacts and have it remind you and setup tasks to stay in touch with these folks. You can go into their profiles and easily see their social media stream. You can turn an email, tweet, post, etc into a task. This will all be tied into that profile of that person. You can also send out message and delay them as well.

Nimble comes with a 14 day trial and its worth signing up just to see the view. It’s hard to describe. Its like no view you’ve ever seen, and its uber convenient to have everything in one space.

Their mobile apps is limited compared to the web version of their program (basically an advanced contact manager). If you are a small business person, its only $15 per user. Check it out at Nimble.com

Panda Doc and Easy Way to Sign Things Digitally

Panda Doc allows you to upload your document, choose what fields need signed, and then send it to your contact. You get insights into when they open it, how long they look at each section and more. The best part is you ca try it free (you get three documents). If you refer someone, you get more free documents. If you want to pay for them, they start at free. The one thing that makes this different is it appears to tie into every imaginable system on the planet. I don’t have a use for this tool (I found out about it from Nimble) but I can see where this could useful – especially the paralytics. Check it out at pandadoc.com

Join By Text – Well Named

This product does one thing, and it does it well. You can provide a keyword and a number and when people text to it, they are instantly sent a message asking for their email address. When they send it, they are subscribed to your email list. It works with all the typical players (Aweber, Mail Chimp). the cost is $19 a month. For more information go to joinbytext.com

Call Loop

SMS MarketingCall Loop is more of a marketing tool that uses SMS. You can have auto responders when people text your keyword to a number . The packages start at free with each text cost .05. The keyword is $10 a month. I’ve used it for two days and have already had someone sign up and use a coupon that I had automatically delivered. If you wanted to you could also do a voicemail blast where you record a message and everyone gets a call (I hate these myself, we all get a ton of these around election time). You can also integrate this tool into your current email sign up form. By adding a phone field, when someone signs up for your email list they are on both your email and SMS list. Plans go from free all the way up to 99 a month with three keywords. For more information go to callloop.com
