3. Skitch

Skitch makes it easy to take screenshots of websites and annotate on top of them. I use Skitch on a daily basis to help show people exactly what I’m talking about. I use it to point customers in the right direction inside my web business and visualize new features with my team.

Explaining things in text is hard, but sending a customer a “Skitch” of exactly where they need to click saves a ton of time and cuts out frustration.

4. Digioh

Want to sell a PDF, image or mp3 file on your website or blog? Digioh makes this crazy easy. Simply upload your file, set your price, and start selling it in less than 15 seconds.

You can use the selling link Digioh gives you to sell digital files on your website, blog, in an email and on Facebook. This could be an image, an eBook, a simple spreadsheet, or anything else you can create digitally. I like to use Digioh to distribute free informative PDFs on guest blog posts in hope of attracting new customers.

5. MailChimp

Need to email customers a major announcement or promotion? Look no further than MailChimp. They make it super easy to send bulk newsletters to everyone you need to.

Here is how it works: pick a fun design, type in your text, add in all the emails of recipients, and click send. I use MailChimp to keep my customers informed about new features and customer case studies. This helps keep our old customers engaged with our company on a weekly basis.
