BetaKit and Powered by Search both want to send one lucky person and a friend to the conference. Two tickets to InboundCon 2014 carry an $800 value.

    The Red Pin has lived up to the promises in it is messaging making the company worthy of my admiration.

  • http://forewardsapp.com/blog Jason Dea

    Google analytics. The company I admire most from top to bottom is Tunnel Bear.

    I can’t live without hubspot. I love publishing landing pages on-the-fly, linking inbound data with salesforce, writing interesting code that connects with Hubspot’s api, and automating tons of stuff into awesome workflows.

  • Kelvin K

    Can’t live without Google Analytics. The best company for marketing has to be 500pixels. I think the buzz around their legal pages are definitely interesting!

    For me, the answer to ‘what kind of marketing software I can’t live without’ is WordPress….it allows me to quickly add a Blog to any client site and boost authority/trust levels via content! Cool app!

    Marketing software I can’t live without. Without a doubt my choice would have to be Rank Tracker from Link Assistant. Unlike the vast majority of rank checking software which updates rankings weekly, biweekly and monthly Rank Tracker is a la carte allowing me to easily figure out what changes impacted a ranking change.

    I’d also like to toss out that I also CANNOT live without Unbounce for my landing page A/B split testing.

    Like Kelvin 500pixels is the start up I like to keep an eye out for. Mainly as they were a free service that accumulated a lot of users in a short period. With the introduction of paid plans im interested to see how their marketing team maintains their userbase and promotes their paid levels.

  • Liana Buenaventura

    Thanks so much for the opportunity, BetaKit!

    For marketing software, hands down would be Google Analytics. As for Canadian startups, there’s so many to choose from; however, off the top-of-mind I’d say Influitive, Intellitix and Tab.

  • Sayenden Supramaniyam

    2. The startup’s advertisement I enjoy the most is Shopify!

  • Thusjanthan Kuben

    1. The marketing tool that I cannot live without is CallRail. I love their realtime analytics dashboard. The fact that you can pin point a keyword to a call is crucial to your PPC campaigns.

  • Savitha Vijayakumar

    1. I’ve used Uberfilp before and has been a great tool to syndicate content from many streams. This tool is great to keep users on your site.

    The Moz culture is so authentic; their research retains the vision of delighting customers.

  • Matthew Brown

    1. Hootsuite. It offers a great platform to manage my day to day marketing campaigns as well as provides great in depth analytics

    I just saw a tweet about this contest that was tweeted an hour ago, so I am assuming this is still open? My favourite marketing tool is Buffer App. It makes my life a lot easier. (I also LOVE Google Adwords – it helps me fine tune my clients marketing with hard data rather than guessing, which is really, really useful). And I like the way that Kobayashi Online stays close to the WordPress community in Toronto and it super supportive of it. Sometimes the best marketing ploy is simple, honest interest in a community. It can generate heaps of goodwill and word of mouth.
