Love Lose – June

Opencity Inc., Dishoom, Love Lose June

Our monthly feature on what we discovered that we either loved or should be lost. These relate to an app, an accounting platform and online conference we have witnessed related to our field of communications during June.

Love it

  • Ripl_app – Ripl is an online app to create customer animation for social media. Brilliantly simple, free app that allows you create animated image and over-laid text for social media. I tested out for @PlanetCanoe to good effect and will now expand use elsewhere.
  • FreeAgent – Fabulous intuitive accounting software for small businesses. Click this CTA to get 10% discount. It was recommended to me by @jonmoss. It has proven a cannot-live-without resource.
  • HootSuite Connect conference #HootConnect. Great free online day conference with separate seminars to follow including healthcare. We will be reviewing some of the downloads

Lose it

  • No customer service – Facebook stands out here for the wrong reasons. Businesses wishing to delight their customers offer online chat windows with exemplary customer service. It saddens me that a billion customers reward a business providing absolutely no customer service support. This is not a example to follow.
  • Unresponsive websites – There is really no excuse anymore. Given that more than 50% of web traffic is now through smartphones this really must be addressed.
  • Unsolicited printed catalogues – I was disappointed to receive a ULINE Spring/Summer printed catalogue through the mail. Such an apparent waste of paper and postage. It went straight to recycling. This is not the inbound methodology way to gain opt-in subscribers.

Dishoom is a wonderful find. An incredible restaurant around Granary Square behind Kings Cross/ St Pancras stations, inside The Godown, a restored Victorian railway transit shed built in 1850. Just stunning in elegant, flavour and atmosphere.
