Awesome software release – Or am I just Bragging?

Finally I think I have it – after what it seems to be endless months of back and forth with my developer…..I feel it’s ALMOST ready :)

What the hell are you talking about Col???

Ok….so here it is. I have been working on this underground piece of software that has taken literally months to create from concept to final production. I have worked tirelessly with the help of me developer to engineer a list building tool to use with your Linked In accounts.

Now I know what your probably thinking….”This has all been done before – or done to death”

Ok…OK – yes of course it has. And there are literally thousands of software’s and ideas that employ the same principles and concepts that I am using in this software.

So Col – Why are you wasting my time in telling me this????

Woooaaaa!!! There!!! – My plan was actually to increase your productivity on the 13 most popular social platform on the internet today. (Go look it up if you don’t believe me). Honestly, I truly believe LinkedIn is the most undervalued and under utilized Business social platform there is. If you take a look at all the people selling their courses on how to dominate on LinkedIn – then you will understand as I do, how effective it can be if used correctly. For my own example combined with my coming release of the new software I will be using it to funnel people from one list to another (cross my fingers). Of course, you are only as good as the effort you put in :)

As you can probably tell….I am kinda excited to breath a sigh of relief on this one. Not only has the process been such a long drawn out unnecessary head ache, but it has been quite an expensive one.  I have literally spent hundreds of dollars getting this to an acceptable standard.  I have changed my mind a couple of times on what I wanted to include in the software meaning features and such.  You may have already been in the same boat as myself and you would of course understand how your ideas change and evolve over the lifespan of such a project.  Fortunately for me, I had studied quite a few guides and training programs on linked In – so my preliminary ideas where solid enough to create the first solid concept for the software.  This idea was really borne from not having access to a simplified yet powerful tool that anyone could use to connect to there LinkedIn accounts.  I have to say though….I may opt towards a web based software in future just to simplify the whole development process.

Before I reveal the name of the software I want to highlight what this little baby can do:

  1. Installs easily with a few clicks on any PC (not available on MAC)
  2. Is fully security complaint with your PC
  3. Connects with 1 or more of your LinkedIn accounts
  4. Brings back all your current leads from each account
  5. Allows you to message your contacts individually
  6. Allows you a search feature to find individual contacts
  7. You can time to send to bulk contacts and messages
  8. Best of all I have added a new feature to search and connect with more people to build your client list.

As you can see just from this breakdown, the possibilities for this tool can almost be endless.  We have also coded in features that work behind the scenes to make this software as compliant as possible with LinkedIn’s API’s.  Of course as you can see – it can not only help you build a responsive business contacts list on linkedIn but if in the wrong hands can be used for evil too.  Now we make it very clear that the software itself and of course us as developers have no liability when it comes to you using it.  Which ever way you choose to use it – you must be responsible for your own actions.

So without further hold up here – this brand new software is “INBOXIN”

IBIecover

Now your probably thinking “That’s all good – but where is the link going to the Purchase page. “

GUESS WHAT?

I have decided to give it away for free :)

“Whaaat????  – That’s ACES!!!!!”

Sorry for that….I’m sure your not thinking this  –  I can be a bit of dag as well as a bit geeky sometimes.

Anyways – Yes, it yours for absolutely nothing because I really just wanted to give back to the community that has given me so much.  So many individuals I have come across in my marketing career have offered so much awesome information to me over the years – I should already be a muti – millionaire several times over…..lol.

So to sum up I need to add that this post today is only to inform you that the software is going to be released in approx two weeks.  It is a fully functional software  (not some junky BETA stuff),  so you will be getting the real deal.  All I ask now at this stage is if you can do me a favor.  I need to find some people to try out this software and leave me a detailed review.  If that is you, please either leave a comment on this post or you can use the form on this site to send a PM.

Thanks for watching….and stay tuned for the release :)

  1. sounds like a great piece of software Colin.

    I am amazed that you have only spent hundreds of dollars. The last app I created was several thousand dollars and it still needs work!

    I would like to meet your developer ???

    I am on LinkedIn but e do not utilise it as much as I know I should. I read a lot about it when I was writing my book, but have yet to implement it so I would be happy to test it out and give you feedback.

    Congratulations on taking massive action Colin, that is more than half of he battle to success.

    Good luck with it, I hope it is massive hit.

    • Thanks Lloyd very kind words my friend. So you would know very well what a challenge it is. And it’s not always about how much money you spend in developing. It’s also about your determination to see it through.

  2. I love the way you wrote about the application, then slammed-dunk the surprise at the end…it will be FREE!

    I may just pick up on your offer in exchange for a review.

    I am a MAC user but do have windows installed on one of my hard drives. I agree that these kind of programs should either be web based or Adobe Air; so they can be used on any platform.

    I also like the fact that you didn’t say it cost you thousands of dollars to develop.

    Cudos to you for sticking to the task and getting it done!

    • Thank Dawn for your words of encouragement. I have tried my best to over deliver on this one so I really hope you enjoy it and use it to it’s best potential. I have used it on a small scale and it seems to work well so you shouldn’t have too many issues with it. It’s a really quick install and very lightweight on your CPU. Anyways, look forward to your review.

  3. That sounds like a serious bit of kit Col! If anyone reading this is unsure as to what LinkedIn is, I guess you could call if the largest professional membership site in the world, no matter what niche you’re in you’ll find the movers and shakers in LinkedIn. This software looks it will make client prospecting and contact development a whole lot easier. Good luck with it!!!

    • Thanks Mike, yes linkedIn is most definitely the largest pro members site in the world and the beauty of it is the traffic can be highly targeted if your using it correctly. I feel this software will not only help build your list of connections but also help you understand the inner workings of LinkedIn via just pressing buttons on the software :)

  4. Sounds like it should be a great piece of software Col.

    Like many others I’ve not taken advantage of LinkedIn. I’m part of a BNI Chapter (business networking) and we’ve tried using Facebook for about a year but haven’t had any good results. I’ve read that LinkedIn should work better for business to business contacts. You say you’ve studied quite a few guides and training programs on LinkedIn. Are there any you would recommend?

    • Cheers David,
      I am really looking forward to the feedback from this software. Has taken quite a lot of time and effort on my part. I have this free linked in training alternative here: http://linkedblueprintcourse.com/6-days-7-clients-on-linkedin put together by a women by the name of Jimena Cortez. Pretty straight forward and insightful. Other than that I am offering a paid training as a back end offer with my software release in a couple of weeks. You can also do a search on best free LinkedIn training on Google or YouTube. Best of luck my friend :)
      UPDATE: just realized that link doesn’t work – if you want me to send the PDF direct, just message me on my contact page. I am contacting the author to get it fixed.

  5. Great, this is going to be where I start checking out the power of Linkedin.I have not been a fan of linked in may be because I have one of those myths about the site as being a social media site for the corporate world and for offline marketers.I just didn’t see it’s use when it comes to affiliate marketing online but again with a creative mind a good affiliate marketer can make it work for them so with this I will like to kill that myth.Thanks in advance.

    • Good point. With this software you don’t need a list on LinkedIn. You can install the software and sign up for a fresh account then find leads based on your niche. It’s really a free list building tool if you like.

  6. Hello Col

    This software sounds great and like others I would suggest that online software is the best option to overcome operating system limitations. However as an Ubuntu user, I had to buy a Windows laptop for Kindle bookmark editing, for security reasons I will not use a Windows emulator and dual boot just sounds like a fast track to techy headaches.

    So I will be able to see what your software is capable of and finally get interested again in LinkedIn.

    • Thanks Igor, yeah I had to go with windows for the simple reason that for this project it was the easiest way for me to understand how this application worked with LinkedIn API’s. Other than that, it has been quite a learning curve. For my next software, I would say it will be web based.
