Below are a set of tools and resources that help the TechTinx community organically grow:
1. LISTSERV MANAGEMENT: Google Groups
It's how TechTinx runs. All membership management is done through Google Groups. When accepted members email email@example.com, the entire community received the information. Individual settings allow members to receive all emails, a weekly digest, or no emails at all.

2. CONTENT AUTOMATION: If This Then That
These different IFTT recipes make it so that anytime the admin's email address sends an email to the official TechTinx gmail account, the subject line will be shared as a Tweet and as a new posting on the "Emails" Slack channel.
3. CONTENT CREATION: Piktochart
This is a great tool for building infographics. Hundreds of templates make it so that anyone, regardless of design knowledge, can build insightful, relevant infographics.
4. OUTREACH: Click to Tweet
Supporters can tweet out pregenerated tweets with only 2 clicks. Helps reach critical mass quickly and makes it easy for people to show love.
