Great Tools for Creating AMAZING Online Content People are Magnetically Drawn To, EASILY (Updated Version)

Awhile back (maybe more then a year ago) I released a post called “Free Internet Tools and Resources to Enhance Your Online Presence” that got a great response, but – like all things – a lot has changed since then…






So just in case you’re interested in doing anything along the same lines as I am (creating and publishing information online), here’s some of my favorite tools, programs, websites and more.




iWork 09 for Mac

THIS IS THE BIG ONE…my most significant change since the early days is my switch from normal, free Windows program (something called “Open-Office”) to a more upscaled, Mac program called “iWork 09″, which is Apple’s response to Microsoft’s Word, Powerpoint and Excel.



Great pdf exercises, like the one for managing time or this one on the three key areas of self-development were both done EASILY with their “Word” software, “Pages”


worksheet exercise for the 3 key areas of self-development



Other exercises, like this one for monitoring your diet, was done nearly EFFORTLESSLY with their “Excel” software, “Numbers”


foodlog activity



And DOPE powerpoint-tutorial videos, like this one on managing time, were done with their “Powerpoint” software, “Keynote”





So again – as you can see – iWork ’09 is THE BUSINESS, and well worth the investment…especially since you can get it for less than HALF of what I initially paid, HERE.




Image Source

Secondly, almost ALL of the images you see me use (and the silent video clips at the beginning of videos like this), come from a great website called ImageSource.com. I know you already have an idea, but just for fun, take a look at these…

Again, check out ImageSource.com for more…




Actual Tools

This is where I still need a bit of an upgrade myself, but for video, I use a Flip Mino (not even the HD one yet), and, to record notes to myself, I use one of Olympus’s digital voice recorders, which is great for getting interviews or notes down when you only have a split second.



I guess that’s good enough for now…just remember that if you want to excel at anything, get the best tools and the most up to date material…for me, this includes programs like iWork ’09, websites like ImageSource.com and recording equipment (I know I’m slacking here) like the FlipMino HD, etc.




Be free of unwanted fear



Peace,
