REVISED AND UPDATED for 2018!
One of these tools reduced my software development time by 95%. That's just a start. This is a power-packed compilation that will simplify and organize every day of your life! These are the tools I use to run my companies, do research and kick out high-quality products and services every day.
In 1993 I founded my software company 21st Century Technologies, Inc. I have since built custom database software systems for the top pharmaceutical and semiconductor companies in the world. Although I still build database software systems, my efforts have moved in the direction of building websites that increase companies sales and doing online marketing, search engine optimization and search engine marketing/pay per click advertising. This experience has led me to found the publishing company WildBlue Press along with my partner Steve Jackson. I'm past CTO and founder of Mercury Leads, and past CTO of Well.org.
In my marketing shoes I have increased a software product customer's sales from $500,000/year to $4,000,000/year, and I'm currently bringing in 600 leads/month for a customer that are worth $900,000. I increased an HVAC customer's sales by $400K in one month and I have helped countless customers establish, maintain and grow their online presence.
Efficiency and delivery of top-quality services in all of these endeavors is absolutely critical to the success of my companies, and more importantly my customers. I am always on the hunt for great tools that will improve the fruits of my labor and save me time.
In writing this eBook I have literally combed through all of my installed desktop applications, paid services, daily routines, mobile apps and bookmarks to make sure this list of productivity tools is complete. These tools are now available for you to incorporate into your own business and research efforts.
I have no doubt that you will find multiple tools here that will make your life and efforts better and more efficient.
