  • More Helpful Online Tools

    Posted on Timeless Kathy Sammons 12 comments

    When I run across helpful tools I love to share them with my online friends.  There are so many tools out there, that we do not always run into the same ones.  If they are helpful, then I want to make sure that you know about them.

    So, today I am sharing ones that are not really related to one another, but will be of interest to people in different stages of their marketing process.

    Many of you are on Twitter, but some find it hard to really make heads or tails out of it.  Meaning that there are so many little bits of information that it is hard to grasp the full potential.  So, the best-looking desktop Twitter application is called, Seesmic.  With this tool you can categorize the different feeds that you are interested in, such as sports, music and of course, Internet marketing.  This will help you be more productive with Twitter which is our goal.

    So, you are now ready to design your first website, or maybe you want to design a capture page. But what about all of the HTML that you have been planning on learning that will be needed. Well, who has time to do that..?

    Luckily for us there is a great full-featured Web editor called KompoZer.  It is a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) web editor, so you can build a sight visually, rather than messing with code. But if you want to get fancy, you can edit the code directly.

    Now you have your site, or for those that are not interested in that, when you are branding yourself, a logo is always nice to have.  You could spend big bucks for a professional. But why do that? At Logoinstant you’ll find plenty of free logos.

    Once you download one, you can customize it in a graphics program. Many logos are in Photoshop format, which leads us to our next tool.

    If you do not have Photoshop because you do not want to fork out the money for it, there is a powerful image editor called GIMP.  It’s a free image editing program. And it has an impressive set of tools. It can handle nearly any editing task.

    Like Photoshop, GIMP is complex. It has a steep learning curve. In fact, it may be too much for a beginner.  But if you’ve found other programs lacking, this is what you want.

    Lastly, when you have a blog, you want to be connected with other blogs that are similar to yours.  It is not always easy to find what you are looking for.  This tool allows you to search for blogs by theme and subject. You can then easily comment on the right blogs.

    Link: www.fastblogfinder.com

    All of these tools are free, which is always good.  However, the Fast Blog Finder has the following note:

    “You can download a fully functional version of Fast Blog Finder and try it for free. So, you will get a good feel about how the software works and how you can benefit from it. The Free edition of Blog Finder requires registration and allows you find up to 50 blogs for each keyword phrase. You can upgrade software to the Gold Edition and search as many blogs as you want.”

    Well, there you have it another list of great tools that make it easier to get things done.  If you have used any of these let me know.  I will edit my blog to include comments that I receive.  I want to make sure that these tools perform as they say that they do, as well as, if you have had great success with one of them then we should make sure everyone knows that too.

    Here’s to your success,
