Are You Building Your Platform Toolkit?

If you’re serious about building your platform, then building your toolkit as you go is almost as important as your content. Trial and error or ad-hoc tools will only take you so far.

You could refer to the resources pages / suggestions that experts in the Online publishing world give such as Michael Hyatt, Pat Flynn. As far as I am concerned, I have found the following tools extremely helpful in building my platform. Best part is that most of these resources are free to use or at least try.

  • Freemake Video Downloader – Easy way to download your favorite Youtube clips as an audio or video.
  • Free Sound Recorder – Excellent quality voice recording of any length in MP3 format.
  • Debut Video Capture Software – Another one of my favorites to capture the computer screen, make home videos and convert recordings into other formats.
  • Facebook Cache Refresh: Shrug off that sticky cache from Facebook before you share your blog-post on Facebook.
  • ZAMZAR: Convert documents and PDFs into music files (MP3 and other formats) without the need to download software
  • NOZBE: Best way to keep track of your To Dos.
  • FEEDBURNER from GOOGLE: RSS Feeds and Email Subscription Management.
  • Audio Joiner: Lets you cut and join MP3 audio files.
  • Analyse your Blog’s HeadlineCheck your headline before posting your blog. Get a score and recommendations!
  • 750WordsI started blogging using this site. I recommend it for those who are getting started to take up the trial version.
  • Wordle: Create your own word cloud!
  • Trello: Agile Scrum based Project Management tool. Let’s you manage multiple projects and product backlogs!
  • YOUTUBE to MP3 converter: Works specially well for long (I was successful in converting a 6 hour video) Youtube video to audio conversions.
