The app is similar to Vine or the recently introduced #instavideo, and it allows businesses to create interconnecting 30-second video segments. What makes Engajer stand out? The segments lead viewers through an interactive menu of Q&A’s, which provides valuable and accurate knowledge. From there, options for social media posting present themselves, which brings the whole process full-circle.

Appy Pie

Although it’s no secret that mobile apps are huge, many business owners are forced to hire a costly development team to utilize the platform. Appy Pie allows individuals with little tech experience to create custom apps with an onslaught of options and design tweaks for optimal customization without all the heavy lifting.

Tinder Box

Tinder Box (not the similarly named dating application, Tinder) is a web-based proposal-generating program that can help deliver your business’s message to customers in a clear-cut and concise style. The app allows you to create, manage and track all sales documents that form the basis of your marketing strategy.
