5 Cool iOS Apps for Email Marketers


In a recent post, Jim Ducharme introduced his 5 favorite Android apps that are useful for email marketers. Time fo some useful apps for iOS users, too.



1. GetResponse

Of course, there couldn’t be a top 5 on the GetResponse blog without the GetResponse app. But really, if you’re using GetResponse, you’ll find it extremely useful when you want to manage your campaigns on the go or even send a newsletter.

With the app, you can add contacts, create new plain-text messages, send HTML emails from drafts, re-send campaign emails, add or import contacts, and view statistics (you can even send stat reports to your email.) Essential for any GetResponse customer (and there’s an Android version, too.)



2. Subject Line

As the name suggests, this app tests subject lines for possible deliverability issues and gives you marketing-related suggestions to improve open rates. So when in doubt (for example, when you’re using the GetResponse mobile app to send a newsletter and thinking of a great subject line for it), grab the Subject Line app for guidance.



3. Dropbox

Lets you share your files —an absolutely indispensable app you simply can’t live without once you start using it. Any file you save to your Dropbox is accessible from all your computers, iPhone, iPad and online via the Dropbox website. You also have the option to store files in a public folder and easily share them with a simple download link.



4. CardMunch

It’s a business card reader by LinkedIn that converts business cards to address book contacts and then adds them as connections on LinkedIn. Just use your iPhone to snap a photo of the card, and the app automatically adds the info to your phone. How cool is that? Useful, if you’re travelling a lot and visiting shows and conferences and want to keep in touch with the people you meet.



5. Facebook Pages Manager

(next to other native social media apps such as Twitter) to manage your Facebook business pages – for those email marketers who are also actively using social media. If you’re not using it yet (this one is relatively new) you definitely should. The app notifies you when people post or leave a comment on your timeline and lets you easily switch between Facebook pages you manage. You can post on your pages, view insights on page activity, and even promote your posts straight from the app.

It helps you keep the business side of your mobile Facebook separate from your private account – and any admin of a Facebook page will know how important that is!



Of course, these are just five I chose, and there are loads of others that are helpful, or even essential, in the everyday life of a marketer.

Now it’s your turn – what are your favorite iOS apps?
