279: How Communications Startup Mobilize Is Helping Businesses Connect With Global Partners, Freelancers and Influencers
Does your business need a good alternative to Google Groups, Meetup, Slack, Mailchimp, CRM, and the endless of other tech solutions out there?
From on-demand startups, to open source tech companies, marketplaces, and their sellers – companies today rely on external partners more than ever before. Your next work colleague could even be in a different time zone. How are businesses adapting to this massive shift? And how do they effectively communicate with them all? Sure many turn to platforms such as Slack, but we need something to remove the white noise, not add to it.
CEO Sharon Savariego has helped build Mobilize to help companies communicate with external groups and individuals in a digital age. Essentially, Mobilize is a single communication hub for groups. It helps you easily communicate with and organize your group members from one place.
So while most communication tools out there help businesses with internal communication or customer communication Mobilize aims to help businesses communicate with their partners – resellers, affiliates, influencers and developer groups etc.
At Mobilize.io they believe groups are a serious business and that it’s time to give group managers something better than spreadsheets, mailing lists, and Google groups. So they built the 1st professional yet ultra-user-friendly group communication solution. Used by over 100 customers like Microsoft, MasterCard, Docker, Etsy, MakerFaire, The United Nations, Prezi and many more. The ultimate aim is to organize, communicate and build stronger relationships with their partners at scale.
After years of building her own communities and managing sales and marketing at amazing tech companies such as uTest (QA crowdsourcing) and CheckPoint -Savariego is now bringing this experience into building a product that will help any company and organization to build their own movements.
Considering that true innovation comes from connecting people, I invited the Mobilize CEO onto the show to learn how they are connecting people in a meaningful way.
