Each day this week, we will be examining a smart phone app that can help you run your business more effectively.
Smart phones are becoming more vital in the work place, and for some, it can revolutionize how they do their job. In a recent Pew Internet Project report, they found that “82% of adults in America use their mobile handsets on a daily basis.” In total there are 86 million mobile internet users as of 2010, which is up 25% from 2009, according to a report done by CNet. This illustrates just how dependent we are on our phones and how important it is to have the right tools to help. Because people are using their phones to conduct business on a daily basis; we want to highlight some of the apps that can be the most helpful.
Your website is one of your most valuable marketing tools you have for your business. It is important to watch how your website is doing, how many people are visiting, and where they are coming from. This information can help you strategize new marketing opportunities, or eliminate unnecessary spending. To help you manage your website no matter where you are, you need an analytics app. There are many out there, but here are the ones I recommend:
Android: DroidAnalytics. Even though this one costs $3.55, it is worth it because it links up with your Google analytics account that you already have set up.
Blackberry: Desktop Web Analytics. The advantage of this one is that it is free. Unfortunately, this one does not link to Google analytics, but I am sure the stats they provide for your website will be similar to Google analytics.
