Tools That We Use and Recommend
Below you will find a list of all of the software that we actively use at Uhuru in many of our client engagements and sales/marketing training.
Do you need a simple CRM that you will actually use? We recommend HubSpot. We’ve been using HubSpot for years to track all of our sales activity for both our agency and our clients. It’s simple and user-friendly, which is why we love it and recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a CRM to start with.
Our businesses live and breathe on Google Drive, Docs, Spreadsheets, Drawings, and GMail accounts. We own at least 100+ email accounts for various cold emails and operational purposes across our various businesses. Google freaking rocks—enough said.
People often ask if we use a premium version of Linkedin for the outreach campaigns we run at Uhuru. The answer is yes, we use LinkedIn Sales Navigator. This sales prospecting and lead generation tool gives you advanced search criteria and the ability to do a much higher volume of outreach. To see its power in action, check out this article we wrote on “Social Selling: The Definitive Guide.”
If you have a team, you need to be on Slack. It’s essentially like an old AOL chat room, but with different channels for different topics (and modernized technology, thankfully). Our team lives and communicates on Slack every day. We discuss things business-related, but also fool around and post lots of marketing jokes. Slack is free for quite a while until you need premium features, which makes it a great beginner’s tool.
Jira is powerful and awesome. While we love tools like Asana and Trello, they have their limitations. These tools are great for storing stuff, but not as good for accountability, assigning tasks to others, and tracking to make sure they were done—this is where Jira excels.
Jira is all about accountability and collaboration between team members. If there is a task to be done in our company, it’s in Jira. In fact, we often use the phrase, “If it’s not in Jira, it doesn’t exist.”
Meet our best friend and gatekeeper: LastPass. LastPass is a password vault that automatically fills in passwords and usernames when you open a login page once they’re added. You can add people in your organization to your folder so they will also have access to login information for the company accounts.
Zapier will save you more time than you can ever imagine. An automation tool, Zapier connects your apps and automates your workflow, moving info between over 750 web apps automatically. This lets anyone build integrations with just a few clicks to automate chores around Twitter, HubSpot, MailChimp, Wufoo, and more. If you are doing repetitive tasks, we’re willing to bet that Zapier can automate them.
NeverBounce’s real-time email verification and list-cleaning service is a scalable and reliable platform for reaching real recipients via email that is backed by concierge-level support. This tool provides verification of email lists, reduction of bounce rates, and improved deliverability of emails sent through the marketing and sales teams.
LinkedHub is a technology that automatically sends connection requests and follow-up messages to people who meet certain criteria through your LinkedIn profile.
