If you’re a digital marketing agency, you likely have a number of tools like Liquid Web, GoDaddy, Basecamp, CallRail, Rackspace, Buffer and Freshbooks you visit each day. On top of that, you also have client sites (and their development sites) as well as all their social media accounts to manage. Add that all up and you could easily have 100’s of links you neither want nor could remember the URLs for.
More than 10 years ago we created an in-house tool for our team at Pixel Jocks to visit the sites and tools we use everyday with just a click. Rather than trying to manage bookmark sharing tools across multiple browsers, computers and mobile devices, we created this tool to be a central repository for all the sites we visit regularly without having to remember and/or type URLs.
It is a little thing to save a few seconds each time you have to visit a site, but over the course of a day, it adds up. Less time spent looking for that development URL or getting to the login page for your hosting provider ultimately saves you money.
STACK Pixel was created to be the Digital Dashboard for your marketing agency.
At its core, STACK Pixel is about helping you manage the sites you visit every day. Rather than typing the URL in the address bar or searching through your bookmarks, STACK Pixel provides a way to categorize those links that are easy to find and click. Once you enter your sites, you’re never more than two clicks and a few seconds away from loading that site.
STACK Pixel is web based so it works in every browser on every device. Once you set it as your home page whenever you open a browser, you’ll begin to understand how this seemingly simple tool can transform how you and your team interact with the web.
Beyond being the perfect tool for managing your sites, STACK Pixel includes additional features to help you and your team work better together and stay informed about the business overall.
- Branded with your company logo and color
- Company Notifications
- Company RSS Feed
- Personal Notes
- Many more to come – see what’s in the features pipeline
To make STACK Pixel even more useful, the following are in the integrations pipeline. Seeing these numbers will help you and your team take a holistic view of your business. What isn’t tracked, isn’t acted on.
Frequently Asked Questions
Who is the target audience
STACK Pixel was created to store links, lots of links that are visited almost daily. This generally means businesses like digital marketing agencies that help others manager their online business. It could also be for companies with a large portfolio of products or services that each have their own web site and associated social media accounts.
In the end, STACK Pixel is for anyone that wants to manage a large number of links and have easy access to those links on any device combined with tools to keep your team informed about your business.
When is the launch date
The target launch date is January 15th. With that being said, the core functionality of the front-end app is up and running so we’re asking for beta testers. Once we launch, they will be offered a discount code to continue their subscription at a reduced rate.
The next big push is to build out the administrative back-end for account owners as well as the new account on-boarding processes. Once these pieces are complete, we will launch.
What is the difference between the Free and Paid Versions
The Free version of STACK Pixel will be branded with STACK Pixel logos, blog posts and promotions (a.k.a advertisements) for STACK Pixel, Pixel Jocks and products/services we use. It will not include any 3rd-party integrations or administrative access.
Free accounts can easily be upgraded to a paid plan.
Paid plans include branding, full administrative access, all future features, 3rd-party integrations and no promotions of any kind.
What is the timeline for new features and integrations?
Once we launch, we will work with customers to determine what features and 3rd-party integrations should be implemented next.
Our goal is to add the highlighted 3rd-party integrations mentioned above and then add features from the pipeline as they fit our goals and the goals of our customers.
What STACK Pixel Isn't
It is not intended to be the archive tool for blog posts you want to ready later, that news article from the WSJ article you want to review come tax time or the link to Amazon for that new Xbox game for your son. There are honestly much better tools for that, the bookmarking feature built into all browsers for example.
STACK Pixel provides quick access to the sites you visit on regular basis – be that daily, weekly and monthly – on all your devices with additional features to keep your team informed about what is going on with your business.
