We don't stand still with our tech, we're always testing new products to see if they allow us to do things better or operate faster. Making numerous 1% increases in efficiency adds up to a significant improvement over time.

Marketing Tech

We use Google Apps for mail and shared docs and Apple iWork for standard productivity tools. Our suits use Google Analytics, Adwords and Facebook Insights everyday to manage campaigns and always-on programs.

We also use Campaign Monitor, Mail Chimp or Exact Target for email marketing. For SEO we use SEO Moz for keyword analysis and tracking results.

In addition we use SuperMetrics to help with our client reporting.

Infrastructure Tech

For hosting we use Amazon Web Services and Rackspace. And we use CloudFront & S3 for static file hosting and CDN. Mandrill is used for transactional email to manage deliverability.

Github, BitBucket & Fabric are employed for consistent code deployment & version control, BrowserStack for checking out different browsers and DNSimple for managing the wires behind your website.

We use Pingdom to monitor our sites uptime status and New Relic for figuring at what point our technology will break (so we can scale up first).

Review & Optimise

We use Google Analytics and Optimizely for multivatiant and A/B Testing. Google Analytics for bench marketing and campaign analysis.

We use UserTesting for real world testing of our websites.

SEO Moz is used to benchmark our search engine optimisation results. And Nudge is used to track the impact of our content marketing.

Tech that helps us get stuff done

We manage the business using dropbox for secure cloud based file storage. Proworkflow to manage jobs and Xero to manage the books. Asana is used to collaborate on big projects.

We also pull the big numbers together on Geckoboard to make them visible around the office so anyone can jump in if we see anything of interest.
