- Working from Oakland, California, the North Social group claims to be ‘easy-to-use applications that enable anyone to quickly create and manage a custom Facebook page.’ Apps are priced from $19 a month and offer a free 14-day test run.
- MailChimp is an E-Newsletter system like Constant Contact, but it’s free for the first 12,000 emails per month to a list of 2,000 subscribers. We like free a lot.
- Payvment E-Commerce Storefront is a free store for Facebook, All you need is a PayPal account. We’ve recommended it for El Porton and Fausto Polanco’s stores.
- Pagemodo is an app that let’s you very easily and quickly create a custom welcome tab on your Facebook page. The free version just puts a link to the pagemodo website at the bottom. They even let you create a video welcome.
- Our friend Diego is really jazzed about Huddle which also offers a 14-day free trial and starts at $15 per user/per month to manage projects, files and people in the cloud. When it rains, it pours, eh?
- This one claims to get signed up in 20 seconds. Okay – wait here. Let me time them…. Holy app crunchers, WildFire App wasn’t lying. I’ve got access to getaway sweepstakes, fan quiz, travel photo contest and other promotions. Not what a PR agency needs but perhaps what a PR agency’s clients need. Nice.
- Finally, fanapps claims to be ‘the most popular integrated suite of applications for social media marketing.’ Oh, really? Again, what’s nice is they have a free version to see what the hullabalu is all about.
