Posted by ArtworkServicesUSA, 06 January 2012 · 336 views

1. SAGE MOBILE: SAGE is the first one to allow distributors to research products on smartphones. You can access their Project Center and view the exhibitors at a tradeshow while you are out of the office. It seems though that you would need to be connected to the internet to access any information. You also need to have a subscription to Sage Online, so while downloading the app is free, using it is not. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-h_PMgl1KF1s/Tun33SIqqAI/AAAAAAAAATM/IXLVgvaYzdQ/s320/mobile.png 2. AWSOME DIRECTORY: AWSome Directory is a free tool for promotional distributors from Artwork Services. Distributors can call, email, map, see booth nos., and connect to websites. It means you don’t need to remember anything, all the information is right there at your fingertips. There are offers, specials and coupons from suppliers that can be seen right before calling them. The contact book works without a data connection and the app doesn’t need any subscription. It also categorizes a few suppliers in the FindIt section. It is an essential communication tool, not a product search tool. AWSome is availablefor Anrdoid and Iphone & at www.awsomeapp.com 3. DROPBOX :Any file you save to Dropbox also instantly saves to your computers, phones, and the Dropbox website. With 2GB of Data free for each account, you can easily keep your catalogs, product images, presentations, etc. accessible from anywhere. Dropbox works with Windows, Mac, Linux, iPad, iPhone, Android and BlackBerry. It works even when offline so that you always have your files. Dropbox transfers just the parts of a file that change (not the whole thing) but make sure to set bandwidth limits if you don’t want Dropbox won't hog your data connection4. FACEBOOK & LINKEDIN: Facebook and LinkedIn do not need any introduction. What both these services do is allow you to create your social connections online so that you can follow what your friends or business connections are doing. Be sure to choose your connections wisely and set your update settings based on the purpose of the particular account. Also use this tool to create and regularly update your company page on the go (link it with twitter), keep track what other distributors are doing, follow suppliers and access other industry resources that are on this platform.5. EVERNOTE: Evernote for iPhone lets you create notes, snap photos, and record voice memos that you can then access any time from your iPhone, computer, or the web. Instead of carrying visiting cards around that you might lose, think of scanning the visiting card on your phone with Evernote. Instead of trying to remember conversations or requirements, record them and add notes to this recording. With practice this tool is quite addictive and eventually indispensible.6. TWITTER: Twitter needs no introduction. Follow key twitter users who provide useful information. An early indicator is how many followers they have. Look at lists to which these users belong to find other influential people to follow. Tweet to provide real-time customer service, to promote your brand and give out interesting information that would make others follow you.7. SKYPE: Call, video call and instant message anyone else who is on Skype for free with Skype for your iPhone or iPod touch.8. PROMO MARKETING: Promo marketing provides product information for advertising specialty distributor salespeople. The app has monthly issues of their magazine with pictures and descriptions of promotional products, along with features on specific markets and emerging product areas.9.
