The Greatest Free & Freemium Tools I Can’t/Won’t Live Without

By Ravi Jayagopal | Audio , Digital Creators , Free , Freemium , Podcasting , SEO , Tools , Video

I've been selling online since 1997. And in all of those years, I've tried and tested an insane number of tools, desktop software and apps and online services, as you can probably imagine. And today, it's just absolutely crazy to think that I depend on so many of these tools on a day-to-day basis, yet I've never had to pay for most of them. All of these are either completely free, and/or open source, or offer a free tier that I can pay to get additional features - basically a freemium (free + premium) service.

So here are some of the greatest free and freemium tools most of which I couldn't - and wouldn't want to - live without.

Skyscraper Content for SEO

Image above shows planning and brainstorming my article using a Mindmap - I do the same whether it's an online course, Kindle book, WordPress plugin, online business planning, product development or skyscraper post.

I'm writing a Skyscraper post - basically a massive, all-in-one article at S3MediaVault It will be "all you ever wanted to know" type of post about files, delivery, storage, security, S3, CloudFront, etc. This post will also be released as a 30-50 page Kindle ebook. Then I will take snippets of it and post it on my other sites and link back to it.

Here's the most important thing: I am not waiting for the entire Skyscraper to be completed before publishing it. It's only complete 25% (at the moment), but it's up and running from when it was probably 5% complete. It's live and getting indexed and building up Google-juice. I've started linking to it from other sites to get the incoming-links going.

Here's the post...

How (and Why) to use Amazon S3 to Deliver Audio, Video and PDF on your WordPress website

In digital marketing - thanks to the sheer "digital" nature - there are a LOT of things that can be published WAY before it's "100%" complete, whether that's your online course, Kindle book, blog post, or even your podcast (yes, just launch with 1 single episode - don't listen to the clueless folks who ask you to record-and-release 5 or 8 episodes together).

So, don't waste time or energy trying to be a perfectionist.

Ship it quick, publish it fast, there's always the powerful "Edit" button.

Create.
Publish.
(Promote).
Edit.

Alexa, what’s my Flash Briefing?

By Ravi Jayagopal | Alexa , Audio , Digital Creators , Kindle , Podcasting

“The Twitter of Audio”?
“Twidio”?
“Twaudio”?

Take your pick — those are my maybe-lame nicknames for Alexa Flash Briefings 🙂

I launched my own Alexa Flash Briefing (AFB) - which you can listen via the player below - in August 2018. And here are some random thoughts and comments regarding my experience.

Do you have an Alexa Flash Briefing? If yes, what is it? If no, why not? Let me know in the comments below.

It’s a digital goldmine right now, ripe for the gold rush. Very much like Podcasting, but even more exclusive, as not too many know about it, and not too many will put in the effort to create one, even though it's super-easy.

Which of these would you rather compete with for attention?

5+ Billion YouTube Videos
1+ Billion Websites
850,000+ Podcasts
10,000+ Alexa Flash Briefings

(The numbers have been aggregated from various resources, many of them making their best- and educated guesses. Anyway, the general idea — and my main point — remains the same.)
