What is Markitty?

Markitty is an online software tool that helps small businesses with online marketing. Markitty offers daily tips and insights on your online marketing by putting together stats from your Facebook Page, Twitter profile, and Google Analytics account.

Who should use Markitty?

You should get Markitty if:

  • You are a small business (restaurant or retail store or business services or florist or anything, really), and
  • You have a Facebook Page, Twitter account, website, or blog (at least one of these) for your business, and
  • You want to make better use of online marketing.

That’s it. Sign up and connect your online marketing accounts to view Markitty’s recommendations for you.

I have a Facebook Page but I’m not using it actively. Will Markitty help me?

If you want to use your Facebook Page more actively to connect with your fans and customers, sure. We’ll help you figure out what works for you and what you should be doing.

I have a Twitter profile for my business but I’m not using it actively. Will Markitty help me?

Sure, if you want to use your Twitter account more actively to connect with your fans and customers. We’ll help you figure out what works for you and what you should be doing.

How do I find out if my site has Google Analytics?

One easy but uncertain way of finding out is to right-click on your web page, click on “View source”, and look for the Google Analytics tracking code. It should include something like “google-analytics.com/ga.js.” If you have a WordPress site, it might have a plug-in for Google Analytics, in which case you will find the name of the plug-in (for example, ours says “Google Analytics for WordPress by Yoast”).

An easier way might be to just ask your webmaster or web designer who manages or set up the site. Ask them to add you on the Google Analytics account so you can connect it to Markitty.

I don’t have a Google Analytics account. What do I do?

Here’s how to set it up. Google Analytics gives you really valuable stats for your website (or blog or e-commerce site).

How often should I log in to Markitty?

We think you should look at Markitty for a few minutes every morning. We’ll have new recommendations for you every day, but we won’t mind as long as you check in a couple of times a week.

Will you share my marketing data with others?

Nope. Your data remains secure and protected. We might look at it to figure out any issues you are having or to give you personal recommendations, but we definitely won’t share your data.

Can I deactivate my account later?

Of course. You can disconnect Facebook (or Twitter or Google Analytics) from your account to disconnect and delete all your stats from Markitty. Want us to delete your account totally? Just send us an email at support@markitty.com.

Will I have to pay to use Markitty?

Right now we’re in beta, so it’s free. If you sign up before July 15, we’ll have a special offer  for you when we launch.

How do I sign up?

Right here.

Why is it called Markitty? That’s a weird name.

We know. But it refuses to answer to anything else.
