This is an awesome post, thank you so much for sharing this. I am using 4 tools that I don’t see here that I hope you can find useful as well and the best part is that they are free. 1. snappa.io/app is a tool that allows you to customize graphics for your posts. 2. I use these 3 in conjunction to organize bloggs in one place for later reads/listen – I place the blogs i am interested in reading on http://feedly.com/ I can then save the ones i am not able to read to https://getpocket.com so I can listen to them later with Lisgo.org which easily integrates with pocket.

The concept is simple. If someone is reading an in-depth blog post of yours, chances are they’re very interested in what you have to say on the topic. The key is to then offer them something that is directly related to the topic they’re reading about. You know they’re already interested, so by offering instantaneous extra value it’s not difficult to see why people would gladly sign up.

These are terrific. One bit I’d like to add: I look forward to a time when we add a facilitation piece, not just a content push piece. We have devoted centuries to getting in, getting seen, finding buyers. But we come in at the last point of the buying decision path – when they make a solution choice. There is so very much hidden from us (consensus issues, systems issues, people issues) that have little to do with our solution and everything to do with their ability to buy without internal disruption, and current marketing capabilities are not addressing this. It’s not hard to get to buyers at their first idea and help them assemble their entire buying decision team. But we’re not doing it. I look forward to the time when we do.
To put these numbers into context: a myriad of data compiled on Twitter shows that the average click-through rate rarely tops 1.64 percent. Without paying for promotion, the average Facebook post is even worse. This is compared to email open rates, which hover around ~20% for many industries and can go up to as high as 40, 50, and 60 percent (and beyond!).
The best way to approach a giveaway is to offer something that’s valuable to your target market. For example, when you’re building an online cooking community, giving away kitchen appliances might be a great way to attract an audience. Of course, there might be a subset that is only interested in the price than what else you have to offer, but in the end using Giveaways can bring in a lot of new leads.

The essence of every successful online marketing video is creating something fun.  Is creating something exciting and shareable. Boring videos get buried. People love things that make them forget their daily troubles and routine. Focus on humor and inspiring stories. With our templates, we help you with the other part of creating a great video: compelling visuals and designs specifically made for your different needs: explainer videos, internal communication videos, business presentation, Instagram video stories and more!
People love stories and can relate to them. A blog is a more serious business, but I have often felt that Matthew used the power of storytelling amply on his blog. By creating a video series of Tiered Link building tutorials, he made people come back for more. For more months than I can count these tutorials were the most shared and visited items on his blog.
These are simple formula for growing a massive email list. The 14 list building hacks to grow an email database super-fast are in no hesitation effective if done correctly. Not all marketers try to think outside of the box to stimulate growth, but pretty sure whenever they read this article, they could learn here and would use it to experiment with the new ideas, coming up with creative ways to build a business.
It’s not comprehensive. For every tool you see in the map, there is a long tail of many other tools that are similar or perform parts of functions of the tool included in this graphic. I have included the content marketing tools I feel stand out the most in their categories. For a further breakdown of some of these categories, check out the following: Content Writing Services: The Ultimate List, Content Promotion Tools: The Ultimate List, Content Curation Tools: The Ultimate List, and Content Marketing Agencies: The Ultimate List.
FilmoraGo is such a comprehensive video editor app that you might feel like you are editing your videos on your desktop. Besides the usual features such as themes, text, transitions, it also offers a range of video editing features — trim/split, ratio/crop, speed control, reverse, voice over, audio mixer, and picture-in-picture. It’s amazing that FilmoraGo is free and it doesn’t add a watermark or limit the length of your videos.
Stop Motion is really intuitive and will help you make fantastic videos with the stop-motion technique. The app is available for iOS and features a host of interesting in-app purchases, such as green screen, image import or sound effects. You can watch and edit your video frame by frame, and use the app's brand new thumb menu to control all the edit options available for each frame.

Average content can’t bring a lot of visitors to your blog. You need content that has the power to generate hundreds or thousands of visits every month for many years to come. Only high-quality content can do that. It will help you rank in search engines, naturally attracting high-quality inbound links that will help you rank even further. It also builds trust, credibility, and authority with your audience.
With digital marketing you can target your specific audience. You can even use something called a lookalike audience on Facebook to target customers like the ones you already have. This audience is built from your email list of customers that you already have. Facebook will take these emails and find customers on Facebook that are similar to your existing customers. You also don’t have to target your existing customers with Facebook ads – you can completely exclude them! Using a lookalike audience will mean that your ads are being seen by more qualified leads which can ultimately lead to more sales and building lifetime relationships with loyal customers.

Thanks Pawan! this is a great list! However, you forgot about VIDIZMO’s digital asset management system. They provide you with a fully brand-able portal for your digital asset management; never hurts to get that extra bit of branding out there does it? Apart from that, these guys also closely work with Microsofts Azure Cloud which, from what I hear, is one of the top cloud service providers out there. You guys might want to check them out for your next list.
But affiliates can be very guarded when it comes to their mailing list, we can’t blame them because we jealously protect our own email list too. When it comes to asking someone to promote you over their highly valuable email list you have to make sure that you’re offering them and their audience something that’s worth their time. Which is why we we strove to make sure our lead magnets were as valuable as possible so that their audience wouldn’t see this cross-promotion as spam, but something that’s worth their time.
The good-ish news for you is that what Tom giveth, Tom cannot always take away. You have the source code, safe on GitLab. Additionally, since many people have contributed to the database of build strings over the years, I'd feel a bit ashamed to take that away, so here's that database dumped into a JSON file. I would encourage anyone to take up the challenge and continue the desire I had those many years ago, to establish a truly authoritive build list.
The following is false “The platform is completely free to use and users can produce and export an unlimited amount of high quality videos “. You cannot export any high quality videos for free. Only very low quality videos full of adverts and marketing images, which is of course completely unusable. E.g. to export one medium quality video costs $19.95 and higher quality costs much more.

Or, you can even create a character that looks just like you, or anyone else from the office; browse through different hairstyles, clothing, eye shapes and so on until you create your own animated twin. Another cool feature from GoAnimate is that you can add voice to your character by recording it directly or importing the file, and they will automatically start lip-syncing it.
This is a great list Pawan! I do ask you consider adding PeopleVine (https://peoplevine.com/) a new platform that merges CRM, CMS, Sales, and automated marketing and leverages individual customer data. In the age of analytics I think many businesses miss out when they don’t make data-driven decisions. PeopleVine does a great job of using customer data for personalized marketing and simplifying business operations.
I found that building a buyer’s list and not a freebie seeker’s list made all the difference in the world of being online part-time as a hobby, to going full-time which I love. It allows me the freedom to take my family members to doctor’s appointment or meet my sister for lunch, when I want to. It’s a beautiful thing. Thanks for sharing! I shared some of your images on my Pinterest profile =). Kristie

Even if you have no video creation experience whatsoever, the editor is easy to use and get to grips with, enabling you to add your own logo, branding, captions, music and style to your work. If you’re creating videos specifically for use on Facebook and Youtube, there are editing styles options designed to work perfectly and get the best results on these particular platforms.
For more and more companies, a cloud-based unified data solution is the way to make this happen. Custom cycling apparel maker Hincapie Sportswear has leveraged this capability to gain greater visibility into revenue streams, turning opportunities into sales more quickly while gaining overall operating efficiency.

If you’re serious about growing your business, building a healthy email list should be one of your top priorities. When it comes down to it, your list is one of the only online assets that you have 100% control over. Having a solid social media presence is absolutely essential (here’s why), but you’ll always be at the mercy of new and changing algorithms (think Facebook’s Edgerank). And achieving high search engine rankings is great too, but again, you’re at the mercy of changing algorithms and updates.
Why It Is Important: “We’ve been able to flesh out the processes for each of our deliverables in great detail for the management of our internal team and outsourcers. We rarely send emails as we manage most of our project specific communication within the platform. Our clients have increased confidence and a better understanding of everything we do for them.”
Awesome list, Pawan. I have used a good number of them, especially Outbrain, superb tool. I would like to offer one myself, Tweet Rocket. It’s a great tool for any business (or individual) who needs growth of relevant followers over a short period of time. A great tool that we use for many clients, and the results are fantastic! https://thetweetrocket.com
What I Used Before This: “We used multiple tools before we switched to Samepage – Teamwork, Trello, Timefox, Basecamp, Mavenlink, Asana. All of these were missing a few elements that we wanted, which is why we kept switching. Sometimes it was because it didn’t have templates, sometimes it was because we wanted a calendar, sometimes it was because it didn’t allow repeating tasks, sometimes it was too complicated and sometimes it just wasn’t advanced enough.”

One of his readers in Costa Rica Yeison began a blog mytanfeet.com which is entirely about Costa Rica. In less than 6 weeks this guy who could not write English properly had his blog featured on two newspapers and earned $350. Over 90% of bloggers don’t make a cent. Currently, it does over $1000 every month. And they have gone on to launch one of the first multilingual marketing blogs yeisonkim.com.
Many people believe that marketers with the biggest email lists make the most money. This is not necessarily true. The size of your list is not as important as the relationship you build with your list. Make sure you have a system in place that converts your website visitors into email subscribers. Then, give your subscribers a ton of value that helps them solve their problem. This helps you to earn their trust over time. When they trust you, they will buy from you. Your relationship with your subscribers is more important than the number of subscribers you have.
