AbleSpark’s Favorite Business Applications

There are countless applications out there meant to make you more productive. We’ve compiled a list of our favorites. You may have heard of some, and some may be up-and-coming tools that you’ll be glad we clued you in on.

Asana

Asana is a project management tool that makes it easy for team members and clients to communicate, collaborate, and get work done. We love it because we usually have multiple projects going at the same time and Asana allows us to do much of it in one place.

Buffer

There are so many social networks and it’s a pain to have to login to each and every one in order to post engaging content. Buffer is a convenient app that let’s you login to one spot so you can schedule and share with ease. It’s a simple, elegant solution to posting-pain!

DropBox

DropBox makes file-sharing fast and easy. We love not being limited by the space on our hard drives, as well as being able to give employees and clients access to certain documents without any hassle. Sharing is caring! And sharing with care is just smart.

Freshbooks

We love Freshbooks because it makes invoicing, expense and time tracking, and receiving payments faster and easier. Plus, there are automatically-generated reports so you have a bird’s eye view of your business’ cash flow. Freshbooks is the perfect accounting assistant!

Highrise

Highrise is a CRM tool that makes it easy to keep track of your many and important contacts. If you want to cultivate meaningful relationships and connections, this application gives you the resources to do it. AbleSpark never skips a beat when nurturing our network through Highrise.

MailChimp

Automation is the name of the game when marketing to your target audience. Keep your customers and potential customers engaged with attractive emails that generate reports on what viewers found clickable and interesting. MailChimp is easy to use and gives invaluable insight.

Slack

Slack is many things to many businesses, but “useless” is not one of them. This collaboration tool is more like an online workplace that allows team members to connect in an instant. Enjoy streamlined workflows and real-time conversations that are archived for easy reference.

Toggl

If you have team members who work remotely, or you just want a simple tool with which to track employee hours, Toggl is a great solution. Login to start or stop the clock from anywhere, then use the data to see if everyone is making the most of their time.


If you need help setting up or integrating these applications with your current software or workflow systems, get in touch with AbleSpark today.

The American WWII Orphans Network is a nationwide organization of individuals whose fathers died or were listed as MIA as a result of World War II. Their mission is to honor their service, provide a sense of community to their children, and educate the public about our fathers’ sacrifice through educational outreach and memorials.

With that in mind, they needed an easy-to-navigate website that serves as an informational resource for their members. AbleSpark was able to provide that and so much more to ensure that the sacrifice of these men is memorialized for all to see and appreciate, and so their orphans can come together to share and break the “Wall of Silence”.

Your website could be hacked at any moment, and here is why: at least 86% of all websites are sitting ducks, vulnerable to hacks and malware. The truth is, if your website is built with WordPress, that percentage is even higher. More than 80% of all new websites today are created with the WordPress CMS, making it the biggest potential target for illegal hacks. Consider the time and money invested in your site. Can you afford to have your website offline for days or worse yet, can you afford to have your website rebuilt?

Why would my website be a target?

Simply put, you are just one in a million. Hackers deploy “bots” which are automated programs that scan the internet much like search engines do. Instead of reading your content, these bots are looking for vulnerabilities in your website: old software; weak passwords; operating system issues, and much more.

Once they get in, these bots install install ads, viruses, malware, and other malicious programs. Ads installed by these bots often contain inappropriate content that may shock your visitors. Whether it’s getting more clicks on their ads or capturing your users banking information, the goal of the hackers is simple: make more money.

Typical Hosting Companies

Typical hosting companies that offer “budget” monthly hosting packages offer zero protection, zero recourse, and zero assistance when your website becomes infected. Often the only way that you know that you site has been attacked is when you receive the alarming message from your hosting company that your website has been taken down and will be removed if the problems is not taken care of quickly, putting your investments of both time and money working on your site in jeopardy.

Who is making these bots and how do they get in?

Many bots and viruses are created by experts in low income regions of the world. Many of these attacks are originated in Russia, Western Europe, and Asia. This means that victims often have no recourse victim has no way to file a complaint or grievance against the hacker. When hacked, the removal of a virus or malware may be possible but, in some cases, the file structure is far too damaged for scanning and removal.

The most common ways for bots gain access to your website is to take advantage of vulnerabilities in website software that is not up to date or to attempting to gain access by cracking your username and password.

How do you protect your website?

Many design and marketing companies simply build your website and leave the rest to you. Talk to company that created your website right away and bring up these concerns. Ask them who is responsible for keeping your website’s software up-to-date? Are they or your hosting company performing regular backups? Is anyone monitoring your website for malware and other malicious code? What are the procedures to fix and restore your website if it get’s hacked?


If you would like to discuss the security of your website, reach out to AbleSpark for a free review. AbleSpark offers Managed Hosting Solutions and we would be happy to work with you and your current agency to protect your investment.
