YOUTUBE is a great way to get your video seen by thousands of people and the video “downloaderYoutube” is a free tool that will help people download a ‘url’ directly to their computer; make appropriate changes and then upload to your website and or blog. What is important here is not to abuse this free service and make sure that you have the right to download a certain video.
SLIDEROCKET makes fantastic presentations with Pizzazz, which will keep your audience entertained and engaged in what you are saying. This type of marketing is revolutionary with results that you can see and touch.
SEESMIC DESKTOP: Social networking is a great “word of mouth” type of advertising, as talking up an excellent website or product among friends and family and has been the #1 way of effective marketing for years. With today’s technology, you can reach everyone all at once (instead of one by one). SEESMIC combines two major venues of social media (Facebook and Twitter) so it saves you valuable time, when you want to share videos, photos, texts and links because everything will be in one place.
JOIN ME is free and easy to use, it gives you the ability to share a screen shot with everyone on your team. With an online company, it is rare that everyone involved would be in the same room at the same time; so JOIN ME is the perfect way to get everyone on the same “page” and updated at the same time. Great for last minute changes or just to keep up with daily progress of a project.
HANDBRAKE basically will convert your video into a format that is “web ready”. Available and compatible for Linux, Windows and MacOS X. It is a multithreaded and multiplatform video transcoder that is GPL-licensed and open sourced.
OBJECT DOCK is my personal favorite as it helps me to stay organized; keeping my most used shortcut icons available with just a click, after the set-up is complete. Create your own fun and attractive Dock with this fantastic program. You are now in control of where everything is and how to access it.
DROP BOX I use this tool daily both for transferring files and use on different computers or iPad but also personally when I travel as you can place all photo’s in the box and send in a link to the drop box where family and friends can view without going over the usual email limits.
GIMP another free, open-source tool for editing graphics with many of the same features found in Photo Shop.
