MailChimp® makes Marketing (nearly) automatic

MailChimp Marketing AutomationIts years now that we use this cool tool. I’m sending out my project management tips with it. Why it is so good? It’s super easy and it removes manual tasks from my to-do list. I can add a personal touch to my messages, design and schedule them as I want.

And the best: For the beginner, MailChimp is completely free of charge (it needs a certain amount of email addresses in your lists before you’ll need a paid account).

My affiliate link to MailChimp. When you subscribe with MailChimp using this link, I’ll get some so called credits perhaps one day. But only the day your free account gets too limited for your needs. This can take time. 😉

Reliable Webhosting with Siteground

Web HostingIts now some years that our website is hosted on Siteground. Before coming to Siteground, we’ve tested other hosting providers and this is by far the best we ever had. And the less expensive, too!

What can I tell you… They are faster, safer and have the best support
(tested with real accounts on 12 of the most popular web hosts on the market).

My affiliate link to Siteground. When you subscribe with Siteground using this link, we’ll get a little bit money into our hosting account which we will use to pay our hosting bills and so allow us to continue to deliver free content for you.

Easily schedule posts across multiple social media accounts with SocialPilot

SocialPilotWe from Cactus Competence have accounts on all social media platforms. Not because we find this is fun, well sometimes it is, but this is real work which we need to do to increase our brand awareness level and so reach more people out there and get our message across.

Before we found SocialPilot, we did this by hand. Connecting with one account, copying in the post text, logging off … Connecting with the next account … and so on and so forth.

Now, we can manage all accounts with SocialPilot, all in the same place. And we can schedule our posts in advance. A huge relief! It is surprisingly low priced and has the most extensive list of available social media platforms.

Link to SocialPilot. When you subscribe with SocialPilot using this link, we’ll get nothing from SocialPilot but your endless gratitude which you could express by sharing or commenting our posts and articles to help us spreading our great content into the social media world.
