Lander – Create, Publish, and Optimize Landing pages (for free!)

Unknown

I recently found Lander and easy to use landing page platform. I’m so excited to implement this with my new content marketing campaign at my job!!

First! Lander lets you design beautiful, high-converting landing pages, even if you’re not a designer. Use one of our pre-defined layouts, or create a layout from scratch. Our intuitive design tool is really easy to use!

Second! After you’ve designed and previewed your landing page, and after you’ve made sure it’s perfect, then publish it – and watch the leads start flowing in!

Third! Want to improve your landing page? Test up to three different versions of your landing page. Change text, images, layout, call-to-action buttons based on real-time feedback of your page’s performance.

It is free for the first 500 visitors which may not be enough, BUT it’s only $25 a month for 1.5K, 3 custom domains and more!

Loving this site!

Evernote – Online Notebook

I just downloaded Evernote today. Evernote makes it easy to remember things  from your everyday life using your computer, phone, tablet and the web. Put everything in one place – your notes, images, documents, web clips and audio notes. Find what you’re looking for using our powerful search. Sync makes your notes accessible across your devices.

Evernote also has another cool app called  Skitch

hero_skitch You can add arrows and circles to really get your point across with fewer words so that your ideas become reality faster. Use existing photos OR capture a screen shoot and then add the annotations. See my example below I made when I was writing this post. Good for presentations or even twitter photos.

Evernote and Skitch are clearly teasers for their paid aps but non the less, cool free tools! Anyone tried these out??

Easelly – Infographics

easelLogo

Easelly you can create and share visual ideas online themes are visual themes. Drag and drop a theme onto your canvas for easy creation of your visual idea! The image is the new headline. You have mere seconds to grab the attention of your prospects in the overcrowded social sphere, and one of the best ways to do this is by adding a compelling visual to your blog post.

Sure, you can go to Google Images and choose a funny cat or piece of bacon to grab attention, but why not get a bit more creative and create your very own custom illustration or mini-infographic?

Some examples below:

Brands for the People – online branding agency

295193_340653212661128_1869150675_n

Brands for the People is an online branding agency for startups. Which I have a passion for 🙂  They founder Andrea Shillington taken the offline branding agency and built a business online. Their branding process starts with a branding course to give businesses the tools they need to get clear about brand messages. The platform then matches startups with their hand-picked graphic designers from all over the world. It’s a win-win for the designers, because they get connected with clients all over the world that they love working with.

Their Vision: We will rest when businesses make a profit without being greedy. We will exhale when we’ve helped hundreds of thousands of startups become world famous brands. And, finally we dream of a day when the discussion about branding is no longer about the logo design.

Oh they also have great Youtude videos and a helpful Twitter feed.

I’d love to hear from anybody who has taken the course!?

logo

The PPT Salon designs presentations for conferences, investor meets, internal meetings, business plans, pitches and whatever else you might need them for. They say they can design a presentation in 48 hours from anywhere around the world for $199. The website looks great, and they have a lot of corporate clients including Coca-Cola and Johnson & Johnson. The only thing is they do not have any examples of presentations to view on their site 😦 I’ve emailed them to send me one, I’ll let you know when I receive it 🙂 Over all I love the idea, time saver for a good deal!
