Welcome back and here is Issue 4 as promised. This is the final issue in this topic.

The Online Tool Box (Continued)

OpenOffice

This is a desktop publishing suite that is free to download. If you don’t want to pay for Microsoft Office and you don’t do much other than create content for online websites, then OpenOffice takes up less room on your personal computer, and it has enough features to make it sufficient for most Internet Marketers.

Tool Category: Income

Features

  1. Easy To Use: Installing OpenOffice takes less time than Microsoft Office. It is very easy to use if you know how to use Microsoft Office too, as it has many of the same features.
  1. Solves A Customer’s Problem: It has a built-in PDF converter so that you can generate ebooks and reports easily, without having to save the file first, download a converter, and then convert the file. There is an option to save as a PDF file instead.
  1. Consistent Performance: Very stable and gives consistent performance. However, some functions aren’t as elegant as those within Microsoft Office.
  1. Simple Registration: You don’t have to register if you don’t want to.
  1. Manages Multiple Users Efficiently: Even if some of you use OpenOffice and others use Microsoft Office or some other product, there are multiple ways to save in various formats, so you can still share files.
  1. Great Customer Support: Not a whole lot of technical support available as it is an Open Source product.
  1. Creates Excitement/Interest: It’s not a flashy product and isn’t meant to create magazine style documents. For higher level desktop publishing you would have to buy a commercial product.

Cost

Free, and that’s why it’s very appealing. No more upgrades, no more license fees. If you have several people on your team, you can save quite a bit of money using OpenOffice.

Metrics

It does come with a free spreadsheet, database, presentation, and drawing functionality. If you want to create metric spreadsheets for other things you can, but there’s nothing inherently that measures metric of saving money with this product, other than the difference you pay with MS Office and OpenOffice.

Twitter

This social networking site can be used as a tool to promote your websites, offerings, and yourself. It is a micro-blogging site that allows you to send out “tweets” of 140 character bytes that tell people about what you are doing and what your interests are online. People sign up to follow you and they can end up “retweeting” your tweets, making it viral. You can even tweet from your mobile phone. The more followers you get, the more the likelihood that you’ll end up getting loads of traffic and generate interest and excitement for your activities online.

Tool Category: Promotion

Features

  1. Easy To Use: Extremely easy to use since you just provide an online username and password and start sending out status updates.
  1. Solves A Customer’s Problem: Nanosecond blogging can get you hooked up in minutes, without having to read an entire blog post to find interesting news and links.
  1. Consistent Performance: Performance has been so consistent that it has climbed up to the number three spot of social networking sites.
  1. Simple Registration: Email verification.
  1. Manages Multiple Users Efficiently: You can generate enormous interest with your tweets and get followers very fast. However, managing those users is not that easy! It can be hard to really get to know each user and interact with them. But, the next tool we discuss will help with that.
  1. Great Customer Support: Good customer service.
  1. Creates Excitement/Interest: This is the strength of Twitter. Since it’s very easy to get followers, you can start to generate a very large network, very quickly, reaching all areas of the Internet.

Cost

Free signup for individuals, but they are implementing a cost model for businesses.

Metrics

It’s easy to figure out how popular you are by the number of followers you’ve attracted. Whether that actually gets you traffic to your sites and offers depends entirely on how diligent you are at tweeting new activities on Twitter. And, it’s not that easy to measure what the impact is, but Internet marketers are convinced it has a huge impact.
