Get the latest tools and resources that will really help your startup.

Hey everyone! 
Cool news this week: StartupResources.io is one of the sites to partner with Growth Geeks, which is a marketplace to hire growth hackers. I’ve used it myself a few times, and it’s awesome to partner up with them.
Visit startupresources.growthgeeks.com to check it out. They’ve recently filtered out all services that weren’t top notch. A lot of the gigs have the first month free too, which is awesome.

Suggested Growth Geeks Gigs
Twitter Growth Engine - Growing a Twitter following can help your business. I had a customer just last week say “I found you after you followed me on twitter, and decided to order after looking over your site.” But growing a Twitter following can be annoying. Let a growth geek handle it for you. First month is free.
Instagram Growth Engine - In my opinion, growing an Instagram following is harder than growing Twitter, because there are less tools out there to automate things. My Instagram for Vacord Screen Printing grew significantly when I used this service. Due to Instagram’s very limited and strict API, there aren’t any super awesome growth automation tools, so you should hire a human to do it. First month is free.
Social Media Machine - Bronson suggested I included this one for my audience. They curate content relevant to your audience and send it out to your Facebook, Google+ and Twitter. But beyond curating content, they also create custom content for your social media, keeping your company’s voice and writing content relevant to your business / audience.
Monthly SEO optimization for your site - SEO As A Service, in which they optimize 2 pages on your site per month, fixing up everything, including the alt tags that people never bother to fill out, doing the keyword research and implementing it.

Tool of the week
Follow Up Then - I use this so constantly that I thought it should be tool of the week. If you need to do something tomorrow, shoot yourself an email to tomorrow@followupthen.com (or tomorrow@fut.io for brevity). Have a sales lead come in, but they don’t need to finalize the order until October actually? BCC oct1@fut.io on an email with the customer, and you’ll get the email back in your inbox to remind you to pursue the order again. Find a growth article with tactics that you want to implement but not until the summer? Email it to june15@fut.io or 5months@fut.io.  It’s the easiest “tickler” system in the world. Check them out Follow Up Then (Get a $6 credit towards a premium plan through this link) (Free plan is great too)
Podcast of the week
GrowthHacker.tv. It’s by the same guy who started Growth Geeks, Bronson Taylor, and it’s video interviews of various growth hackers and marketers talking specifically about what tactics and tools they used to grow companies. It’s inspirational and actionable advice, which is what I always look for in a podcast or video series. 
That's it for this week
Stay tuned next week, when I post my first income report on the site, put up a bunch of user submitted startups, and show y'all my own startup which is relaunching after 9 months in redevelopment.

PS
That 9 months in redevelopment? 8 were with a very slow company, and in the last month I’ve hired a guy from Toptal to finish up the development, and his speed and quality is incredible. Check out Toptal if you need seriously high quality developers.
