Friday Tech Top Ten



Happy Friday my techy and ‘trepy friends. Last week was sunshine and smiles, today is rainstorms and grumbles. But I’m not going to let that stop me from bringing you all the best from this week’s tech top ten. So sit back, relax, and let these tech take-away raindrops fall sweetly on your head.




1. Prezi

“Prezi is seriously impressive. It’s bringing your presentations to life through dazzling effects and animation. It pegs itself as a “communication tool that helps you organize, present and share your ideas.”


Check the goodness here.


2. Building strong company culture

“The brand that provides the best client service and elicits the best emotional experience is often the one clients will choose, at least in the long term.”


Full article from YEC’s Nick Friedman here.


3. Pinterest strategies

“Question: How do you use Pinterest for business? What results are you seeing?”



See all the YEC answers here.


4. Flashnotes

“Flashnotes is an online marketplace for selling notes and flashcards. Only the best notes will do, though, as the community ratings will naturally push the most useful classroom aides to the top of lists where they’re most likely to fetch a good price.”


Check out my boy Keith’s article here.


5. Viddy

“There’s been a lot of discussion lately about whether or not video should be incorporated into social media marketing campaigns. There are good arguments on both sides of the table about this topic although overall when it’s done right it can really give you that extra edge.”



Viddy is awesome, find out why here.


6. Pulse

“Pulse is an application meant to making reading the news a more pleasurable experience. This claim usually doesn’t give me any cause for excitement, but, visually at least, Pulse delivers an adrenaline boost.”


Check out Pulse here.


7. Diary Memo

“Diary Memo is a website where you can keep a private, online video diary. Record video entries of your day’s thoughts and activities. This is a fast and easy way to preserve ruminations, more accommodating with modern schedules and technology on hand.”



Amazing app. Check it here.


8. Cause marketing campaigns

“Businesses with a clear purpose perform better and are more likely to succeed. A business’ purpose should serve as the hub of its ideation — in other words, every decision a company makes should be an extension and affirmation of its purpose.”

9. StartupVitamins

“StartupVitamins sells museum-quality posters that prominently display quotations from startup luminaries. For example, one featured bit of wisdom comes from Twitter and Square founder Jack Dorsey: “You have to make every single detail perfect. And you have to limit the number of details.”



Check out this awesome company here.


10. Make extra cash online

“Again, there are no shortcuts to becoming a millionaire, but there are a few realistic ways to make a bit of cash quickly — if you know where to look.”


Check the top 10 ways to make money online by YEC’s Ben Lang here.


In the spirit of StartupVitamin’s motivational posters, I leave you with this:
