Cool Tools for Online Entrepreneurs Roundup, Part 2

Yesterday I shared 10 tools I use.  Here are 10 more.

Send Out Cards

This service allows you to login to their website, choose a card, add your own message and send a real card through the mail.  It’s an easier way to connect with friends or customers off line.

Open Office

Great, free alternative to paid word processors and spreadsheet programs.  It’s got a suite of programs and is available for Mac or PC.

Google RSS Reader

With an RSS reader I can keep up with more blogs without spending all day to check for anything new at my favorite blogs.  Saves time and keeps me learning.  Here’s more on RSS readers: https://www.michelleshaeffer.com/how-to-keep-up-with-blogs-in-less-time/2010/07/03/

Wisestamp for Email Signature

This nifty little email app will let you create an email signature that adds your social networking links and more.

Box.net and YouSendIt for Large Files

It’s getting harder and harder to get emails with attachments, especially large attachments, through to people via email.  These two services make it easier.

Audacity and CinchCast for Audio

For editing audio files, Audacity is easy to use and record with on my PC.  I like CinchCast for quick online recordings to share of my blog posts.

Basecamp for Project Tracking

Everytime I decide a project is too small to put in Basecamp I end up regretting it!  Basecamp allows you to track to do lists, manage files, and collaborate on projects.  And since everything is stored online in their system you don’t have to worry about email delivery – you can just login and look for updates.  Makes my life easier.

Peek for Email on the Go

I love my Peek!  I use it to send/receive email on the go.  I can get email from anywhere there’s a cellular signal, without needing a pricey smartphone plan.  For $10 to $15/month (depending on the plan you choose) you can get access to your email without a cellular phone data transfer plan and long contract.

Do you use any of these?  Or alternatives you love?

  2. I gave up on YouSendIt years ago, as SendThisFile was much ore stable. But I’ve left it behind too, in favor of WeTransfer.com. Allows, among other things, multiple recipients in the freebie version, unlike SendThisFile. And it has the coolest. ads. ever. I’ve even clicked a few just to find out what they were.

  3. Thanks for some great resources, Michelle. I’m going to check out Basecamp. Here’s one you might want to add or check out: DropBox is a free software program for transferring large files or attachments. You just set it up on your computer and put the file in it and the other person (who you have given permission to, and has DropBox on his/her computer) can access it immediately.
