Social HP – Become A Social Media Champion

Killer analytics show you who your most influential brand ambassadors are. SocialHP is proven to increase customer retention, referrals, and revenue. Here at KahootsHQ, we use Social HP to help increase our reach by turning our employees and users into brand ambassadors. Social HP makes spreading our messages via social media easy and seamless. https://www.socialhp.com/


Slack – For Better Team Communication

Another team favourite. Slack brings all your communication together in one place. It’s real-time messaging, archiving and search for modern teams. At KahootsHQ we use Slack for flawless communication between our team members. We can chat when sitting at our desk or on the go with our smartphones. We use it to send images, videos, and GoogleDrive files. It lets you set up channels to organize conversation. We have a channel for development, one for marketing, and one for jokes to remind us to have fun throughout the day. Archiving your messages leaves no room for communication issues and saves your team plenty of time. Better yet, it’s FREE. https://slack.com/


FeedBurner – For Better Team Communication

Google FeedBurner lets you stay on top of the latest from your favorite websites, blogs, and podcasts. It is also a tool that allows others to keep up with all of your latest blog posts. Feedburner allows your viewers to subscribe to your RSS feed, basically notifying them by email every time you post a new blog post.  Price: FREE! feedburner.google.com/

  1. THanks Allison for sharing. Definitely going to bookmark this blog to share with the Futurpreneur entrepreneurs that I mentor. It was great to meet you at the Ryerson DMZ last summer and to see the success of KahootsHQ.
