5 Key Tools to Help Run Your Marketplace Platform

5 Key Tools to Help Build Your Marketplace Platform

Grinding out the work a growing business needs everyday is like going through a whirlwind of files, emails and meetings. Taking those events and trying to work with different teams can start becoming difficult when trying to organize all the tasks that need to be accomplished.Our team at Near Me is constantly aiming to deliver content and communicate in the most efficient ways possible. Whether its posting blog articles, doing payments or communicating we have found the perfect applications to set our team up for success. Lucky for you, we are here to share 5 of the most used applications we use to help conduct our day-to-day activities.


When it comes to communicating within the team, Slack is where we meet to talk about advances in projects, new leads or just random events happening in our lives. Slack allows you to organize your teams into different channels to talk about specific goals. This way only the ones who pertain to a project are listening. Another bonus is that you can integrate Google Drive to make documents more accessible.

Slack is where many companies can easily start organizing and communicating to jumpstart your marketplace growth.


Content marketing is essential to any company’s marketing strategy. Having a Trello account helps us keep our blog articles organized and gives us a visual of what our schedule is looking like. The homepage gives us a snapshot of at least five weeks ahead so you’re able to see what topics you’re talking about and you’re able to keep track of who has or has not completed their assignments.


With our employees being all over the world, it is difficult to have meetings in person. The beauty of technology has made it possible to have meetings and on a daily basis if needed! All we have to do is simply jump on the computer and open the application. Zoom is the solution, it’s a video conferencing application that quickly connects people from one end to another. Invitations are simple to understand which makes the process of logging in and beginning a conference much more fluid.

Writer Access

There are many topics we want to cover in our blog articles that some of our team may not have the expertise in or simply need some additional help. Having a Writer Access account allows us to connect with very talented writers that can formulate blogs to help align with our content marketing strategy.

Orders can be filled out with many customizable features such as word count and star ratings. You’re also able to see the writer’s order amounts, response and the number of returning customers.


As for a fun application, DoorDash is a great way to stay focused in the office while also getting your favorite meal delivered to you. The app features local restaurants and menus to order from with a clean interface that makes ordering a breeze.

After you order you are able to see the process of ordering, pick-up and when your food is on the way. They give a time slot of when is should arrive and for the most part it’s reliable.

So if you want to cut costs or just beginning to build your marketplace these applications are a great way to stay organized and focus on the bigger picture of reaching your goal!
