Weekly Web Tools is Now Web Tools Radio

Weekly Web Tools ran from 2007 to 2017, and after letting the show take a nap for three years, I'm itching to occasionally talk about some cool stuff on the internet. Well after letting the show take a nap for three years, I'm going to being it back on a more regular basis (still won't be weekly). So if you see the artwork change in your favorite podcasting app, it's not a mistake. We got a new coat of paint, some new music, and after we wrap up some things on the website, we'll be back....


Send Fox Email Client Review

I've been using App Sumo ( *https:/supportthisshow.com/sendfox* ( https:///supportthisshow.com/sendfox ) ) This is a new system but is part of App Sumo ( https://supportthisshow.com/appsumo ) (not just something they are promoting). The price as I record this is $49 for lifetime access up to 5000 subscribers. You can upgrade for $50 to get another 5000 subscribers. At the $150 you are up to 15,000 subscribers and the branding for send fox is diminished. So I purchased the package. First...


Proof vs Provely

I keep seeing these widgets that show that "so and so just purchased this products X amount of time ago." Provely.io is a new competitor and has an opening sales for as little as $8/month while their grand opening sale is going on. https://useproof.com/ appears to have more features, but it's $29 a month and has a limit to the number of visitors http/www.provely.io shows when people purchase, a few less features, and you can get it during their launch for $17/month ($8/month if you choose...


The Final Episode - My Favorite Tools

My Favorite Tools From 10 Years (https://warfareplugins.com/?ref=122) - The best tool for sharing things. I love that I can specify the tweet text and the image for Facebook, Pinterest, etc. This is once I don't wince when the subscription payment comes through (http://podcastcoach.aweber.com/) , but I switched to Convertkit last year, and I love the marketing tools that I can use and the ability to make my own landing/sales pages. coolerwebsites.com (http://www.coolerwebsites.com) which is...



I found proof software, which is a script that puts a notification at the bottom of your screen showing you that someone signed up for your product and how long ago. The idea is "Everybody's doing it" so there is a fear of missing out tactic. The weird thing is their plans start at $29/month, and if you go through your 1000 unique visitors they automatically upgrade you to the next plan that is $79/month (you do get notified that you're over quota, and I'm not sure if you can shut off the...

Stocking Up on Audio, Video, and Graphics

I came across a couple of companies that if you're constantly looking for royalty free items without breaking the bank, you might want to check out. GraphicStock Graphicstock was not a concert in the 70's for graphic artists. It's a website with 380,00 images that you can get access to for $99 a year (kind of). You can download as many images as you want and those are yours forever. There are photos, illustrations, and vectors. You can sign up for a 7 Day free trial and take as many images...


Stencil- Social Images FAST

Stencil (https://podclick.me/stencil) is a cool website that focuses on making social image FAST. They have an extension for Chrome and Firefox. Once you add the extension to your browser, you can highlight a quote on any website. Click on the Stencil icon extension on the top right of your screen to add to the Stencil canvas to create an image. The quote pops into the canvas! They are integrated with buffer, so you can schedule an image (again the focus on fast, and convenient). You can...

Wordfence Keeps Me Safe

Wordfence is a plugin that helps stop people from hacking your site. Today I read you all the different things that it blocks.


Directory Tools and Advertisement Rotation Plugin

I was looking for a tool to make a directory of websites. To make a long story short, they are very hard to find. Almost all directories are created to help you find some address so it can be a local business directory or real estate, etc. I wanted something to list websites at Podcasting Resources.com (http://www.podcastingresource.scom/) Then I remembered I had purchased a theme a while ago from PremumPress called "Responsive Directory Theme" which I don't feel is available anymore. They...

And what else, from those received messages,...


Bomb Bomb Video Email Will Blow You Away

I've used Covideo in the past, but I had to go into my Gmail when I used it and change some settings that set off all sorts of security warnings. Their answer was to send it through their website. In the end, I ended up not using it and eventually unsubscribed. I tried creating videos in Camtasia and uploading them and sharing them on a Google Drive. That strategy was free, but it took forever. So the BIG thing that bomb bomb delivers on is speed. Their smallest package allows you to send...

Themifyflow a Powerful Free Wordpress Theme - Facebook Options

Got a cool tool you use? SHARE IT 888-563-3228 Thanks to Daniel J Lewis of this video (http://www.themifyflow.com/) I'm Tired of Todd Gross Todd Gross is the new Nickleback. He was cool at first but over saturation is leading me to hate him. He seems to be THE GUY to promote every single marketing tools (and I understand, his job is to do voice over, and video work, but apparently he will promote anything - which I feel is bad for HIS brand). Today I play a clip from a video that is built on...
