Free & Opensource Marketing Automation - SocioMAuto
Currently having intelligent marketing or Marketing Automation is the key to successful Content Marketing, and lead nurturing. Could you imagine trying to give all of your prospects the individual attention required to keep them engaged and ever thoughtful of your product, service or solution? I recently recorded a presentation where I talk about the current state of Marketing Automation and the cost to implement and use it. I also pitch my Idea for a Free & Open Source Marketing Automation system.
Pardot Marketing Automation Review
Recently we decided to change direction in our marketing department, from outbound marketing to inbound content marketing. We were happily using MailChimp for several years, however with the corporate shift from Infor CRM to SalesForce, we were given the opportunity to incorporate a Marketing Automation system. During the purchase of SalesForce our corporate managers decided to get us Pardot, since it was owned by SalesForce and integrates nicely. I thought it would be good for me to write up a review of Pardot, for anyone who is considering purchasing it. Up front my conclusion is DON'T PURCHASE PARDOT. It is more work, you will get very little help, and their support is horrible, when you eventually get them on chat. They only offer Chat Support.
Starting Python: Python Game Development
After working with python for some time now, and trying to find new income opportunities, I have decided to create a training course (video series) about Python Game Development. This is the first of hopefully many programming courses I want to create. This one focusing on teaching people with little to no programming experience, how to create a small video game.
AutoMates - a browser automation utility
I have started another project. I know, i have way more irons in the fire than I can possibly handle. But this one is a good one, and deserves the attention. Browser Automation, tends to be used for testing, automating repetitive tasks, and all sorts of SPAMMING. I will let you're imagine decide how this tool can be used.
Bypass NAT without UPnP or Port Forwarding using Tor
Have you ever needed to get applications running on a computer at home, available over the internet? I have several times, an SVN server, Chat Server, FTP server, testing HTTPd, SSH for my Raspberry Pi, just to name a few. The problem I have always face was configuring the router (or routers in most cases) to forward requests appropriately. And if I forgot to create an IP reservation for each device, come reboot time none of the configuration worked. It was a headache. Tor can actually fix this for us. While normally used for anonymity, it has some other cool features. Tor Hidden Service to be exact.
