Scaling Link Building Using Asana

I personally love using Asana. I’ve been doing link building in SEO for a decade and it’s always been challenging to manage and track the process and progress in a link building campaign. Quite often, the link building team gets lost in the amount of spreadsheets, tabs, notes and emails that it makes the entire process fall apart.

Designmantic.com, which is the company that I work for; implemented Asana into their link building campaign this year. In this post, I’d like to share how we set it up and the benefits that we’ve been able to gain as a result of using switching to Asana and setting up our process using the project management software.

The dashboard snapshot.

We can configure Asana to show a list of completed projects under a section. We want to know at a glance how many links have gone live and what is the rate of growth that we are experiencing. Managers can look at this snapshot and see if the growth is progressing or if changes in the strategy or tactics are […]

Basecamp Adds Image Galleries and Recurring Events Features

BasecampBasecamp project management and team communication software is helping more and more companies get a better handle of things. By seeing exactly what needs to be done, teams and organizations have become more efficient in how they accomplish work. At Basecamp itself, employees frequently make presentations, such as mockups or interface design revisions. When presenting before and after screens, they are usually limited to showing only full-width images. Thus, presenting a comparison is difficult, until about a month ago. Now, users can add image galleries to support and enhance their writing. Also available are enhancements on toolbar for images, and support for recurring events. For a great reporting and exporting tool for Basecamp, we recommend you use our own tool Bridge24 for Basecamp.

New Side-by-side Image Gallery

Basecamp Latest News: Protected 2FA Login, iOS App Updates

BasecampBasecamp announced that they have stopped with their own SMS verification program as a security factor for signing in. This is in light with the report from the US NIST that SMS as a second security factor is insecure and is no longer recommended when signing in web applications.

It also has new features such as a brand new tab, a view switcher, and other updates since version 3.9.3. For a great reporting and exporting tool for Basecamp, we recommend you use our own tool Bridge24 for Basecamp.

Basecamp has had its own homegrown SMS verification program. Now that it has been ended, users who wish to secure their account with 2FA need to log in using their Google […]
