It struck me over the last few weeks that some of the resources and free tools I know about online I was taking for granted thinking it wasn’t valuable to someone else.
So in this post I thought I would share a list of resources, tools and services some of them free other just awesome value for money that can help you and your business if you have one.
1) If you need some amazing videos for animation, intros and outro, sales videos, promotional, pretty much whatever reason you need a video for you can find a massive range here that you can purchase for a low as $20. You get all the files so you can edit them and make them however you want for a fraction of the cost creating them from scratch. Check out VideoHive.net
2) All videos need soundtracks right? Or maybe you just need some great music, maybe for an audio course you’re putting together check out AudioJungle.net
3) How would you like reduce your work load, help with research, creating content, help with graphic design or editing the videos from VideoHive.net or for that fact any task, even get help with your love life? You can hire a professional to do the work for you, it not as costly as you would think and if you live in the western world it is even cheaper with the use of currency arbitrage, after all don’t you want to spend more time doing the things you enjoy. Check out odesk.com, fiverr.com, elance.com, guru.com, warriorforum.com (in the Warriors for Hire section)
4) Need to make a header for your website or banner quickly? Go to xheader.com and download totally free header creation software, I use this alot.
5) If you need to make a quick, simple and cool slideshow video, check out animoto.com. Last I checked they let you create a 30 second video for free but it you upgrade to the basic level it is well worth the 30 of dollars it is and you get a years subscription.
6) If you ever need to survey people, maybe your customers or subscriber or anyone else then checkout this awesome free online survey tool surveymonkey.com
7) If you love your social media or looking into branding for your business and what to see if your name is available in all the social networks super easy. Check out this site knowem.com
