The Phoenix sales and marketing software startup Allbound Inc. is looking to disrupt its space by hosting an inaugural Phoenix conference in November.
Allbound CEO Scott Salkin has wanted to do a conference like this for a long time built around channel sales and marketing. “Co:llaborate” will bring together sales, marketing and customer successes from across the country to focus on digital innovation and disruption.
“We’re so excited about this space,” Salkin said. “We’re calling it Co:llaborate because we really want to bring collaboration, trust and more transparency into the space. That’s what’s lacking in the area.”
The conference will be held at the Phoenix Convention Center Nov. 2-3.
Salkin stressed they won’t sell anything at the conference. It will feature thought leaders and technology to help companies accelerate growth through their channel partners.
“I’m bringing in cool companies to talk about what they’re doing,” Salkin said.
Allbound is expecting more than 500 people for the conference, which Salkin hopes will become an annual event.
“Successful tech companies can’t just be about products,” Salkin said. “It’s just as critical to collaborate and have thought leadership. We want to make it a cool place to work in. We want people to know it’s an innovative, thought-leading, enjoyable place to build a career around.”
Allbound, which raised $1.75 million last year in its seed round, has grown from three employees a year ago to 19 employees now. The company has also tripled its revenue in the past year, Salkin said.
Allbound is also continuing to hire and expects to be at 30 people by the end of this year. The company is hiring in sales, customer success and software engineers.
Salkin closed his IDS Technology Marketing company in May 2015 to focus solely on his spinoff software company.
Allbound moved to downtown Phoenix in June 2015 after winning six months free rent in a fully-furnished office in the Startup Phx Office Giveaway contest at the 111 W. Monroe building.
Co:llaborate’s early pricing of $500 ends June 30. For more information on Co:llaborate, click here.

articleMar 22, 2016 PT v Outcomes: Dawn of Value Most superhero sagas revolve around a classic battle of good versus evil. The good guy—our hero—swoops in to save the day, rescuing everyone from whatever horrible deed the baddie was planning. But sometimes, a story needs two heroes to get the job done. While Batman and Superman are awesome—seriously, we love superheroes—in our world, the real superheroes are physical therapists. They may not wear capes or masks, but every day, PTs across the globe wield their extraordinary … Read More

Dynamic content is one of the most popular features in ClickDimensions. Many of our customers love to use dynamic content to include information in their emails that is pulled directly from each recipient’s lead, contact or account record (or records that the lead, contact or account has an N:1 relationship with). However, there are many other less obvious uses for dynamic content, and we are often asked about how it can be used in conjunction with links. There are two different ways dynamic content can be used with links: using dynamic content to set a link and using dynamic content inside of a link. While there are differences between the two approaches, they can each be used to achieve the same goal of including a customer-specific URL inside of each email sent within a single ClickDimensions email send. Setting a Link with Dynamic Content Let’s imagine that each of your customers has a unique URL that takes them to their own personal profile page on your website. Further, each customer’s unique URL is saved to a Profile Link field on their contact record and you want to send an email to all of your customers directing them each to their own profile page. You can do this easily by following these steps: 1. Use the Personalization menu to generate FreeMarker for the contact’s Profile Link field. (Make sure that you have gone to Settings > ClickDimensions Settings and published your metadata. This publishes your customizations to ClickDimensions so that your custom…

According to the American Hospital Association, US hospitals wrote off over $42 billion as uncollectible in 2013. According to the Kaiser Foundation, that number more than doubles when including community and office-based physicians nationwide; yet less than 60% of providers offer a convenient online bill pay for their patients. With mounting costs and diminishing reimbursement, every medical practice must offer a Patient online bill pay in order to proactively remain competitive and financially viable. The problem is complicated. Although consumers are accustomed to paying their mortgage and car payment via the internet, paying their medical bill online is not as common. In study after study, over 1/2 of all patients will wait more than a month to pay their doctor bill if received in the mail. Offering an easy and convenient method for your patients to pay their bill will expedite payments, and overwhelmingly they say they would prefer if their doctor provided a user-friendly Patient online bill pay solution. Creating a payment system is about more than convenience for patients, however. Physicians are facing declines in reimbursement, strains on human resources to comply with the growing mountain of regulations and painful increases in operating expenses. Doctors are concerned about how to provide a viable system that makes Patient online bill pay easily available while remaining in compliance with both PCI Compliance and HIPAA. And they don’t have a lot of extra time to learn a complicated system. The solution is simple. While only about half of all physicians have…

0 Flares 0 Flares × When it comes to generating powerful ad campaigns, nothing beats Google AdWords. The search engine’s proprietary PPC platform gives businesses a plethora of powerful tools to ensure their online ads are seen by the right people in order to generate leads and customers. While Google AdWords is stellar on its own, it can be made even better through call tracking software. We’ll talk about all the powerful benefits of Google AdWords and how integrating call tracking into your PPC optimization strategy can give you even more insights to improve your paid performance. What Is Google AdWords? Google AdWords is the leading platform for launching paid ad campaigns across the Web. It’s relatively easy to use and you only have to pay when someone clicks (depending on bid type) on your ad, which is based on your keyword’s cost per click (CPC). But the power of Google AdWords extends well beyond creating keyword targeted ads. You’re also able to gain valuable insight into how well your ad campaigns are performing over time. When armed with AdWords, you can see firsthand which keywords are converting, as well as the performance of your ad amongst various demographics, locations, and more. A few other notable features of AdWords include: Google Forwarding Numbers & Click to call (CTC) – While many paid ads direct users to websites when they’re clicked, AdWords also offers a feature called “click to call” that directly dials a business’s phone number once the ad is…
