Other names
Lean startup product & service designer, project manager. Marketing, web tool features and functionality, UX design, community development, PR, and the only Saul Fleischman most people ever meet.

Lean startup product and service designer, talent magnet. Experienced in user experience, community development, PR, business modelling and project management.

Current Projects:

  • RiteTag is a social media optimization service for  anyone who needs to engage more closely with and reach beyond their followers.  Just one feature, Optimizer, provides three ways to get hashtag suggestions, tag a post, and send or schedule to Twitter and/or Facebook - with time optimization as well. RiteTag Analytics offers downloadable reports, and also leads the user to his hardest working tags in the user's Optimizer.
  • IdeasWatch: "Startup inspiration from the crowd."  This is our best example of a CrowdGene-powered community site.  If you need your own private social network, look at the functionality of IdeasWatch and contact me with your wish-list of how we could build something similar to suit your organization's needs.

I conceive and bootstrap social media tools into existence.  For lean startups, I am your product and service designer, also versed in team-building and project management, as well as UX, functionality, business modeling, monetization, marketing and PR.

You may want to circle me for:

• UX design

• Social Media Tools/Apps Features and Functionality Planning

• Lean Startup Team-Building and Project Leadership

• Personal & Startup Branding and Image Development

• Community Development, Engagement and Management

• Being Saul Fleischman.  If you believe in pigeon-holing people, I'm an ENFP (Kiersey)

There are so many tools to show you which hashtags to use. If I had to pick just one, it would be RiteTag. RiteTag’s edge is that it can be used via RiteTag’s website, or directly in your browser as an app or plugin. It works with Firefox, Chrome or Safari. RiteTag also works directly in the interfaces of, Buffer, Hootsuite, Tweetdeck, SocialOomph and SproutSocial. - +Pam Neely

Thanks so much, Pam. If I can show you what I do with RiteTag - the site and the integrations - to get things done, video call?  Just gmail me to set that up.

Have you re-shared your best posts lately?

As you test and improve formatting over time, you may find yourself getting circled more and getting more interaction. Google+ posts are infinitely editable. Why not go through your old stuff, buff up headlines, change hashtags and reshare your best timeless posts?
