If you don’t know what Bitly is, then let us enlighten you. Bitly is a link shortener and customizer that allows you to track the links you create. We love this app for when we’re working on our social posts, as it’s extremely easy to create special links and track how they’re used. This is perfect for bloggers who want more custom links than just their websites or businesses who would like to track their shops and/or websites are doing.

For all of you with websites, you need to have Drift in your life. Drift is a messaging popup that allows website visitors to chat with the people behind the scenes. Though you have to set up the bot on a computer, once you’re done you can easily reply to messages you receive on the go.
