All these tools are free to use

A small collection of tools that I’ve created to make life easier for myself. Nothing spectacular but perhaps you’ll find them useful too. All of these tools use the same layout – a list of links on the right hand side of the page and an iframe in which the links open.

Marketing Tools

Classified Ads and Free Ads

Use this simple iframe tool to submit your ads to loads of different classified and free ad sites. Never underestimate the power of product placement in free ads.

Review Sites

Review sites are fantastic tools for product promotion. People like products that others recommend. A little underhanded perhaps but many successful webmarketers use fictitious reviews to pre sell their products.

Directory Submission

Designed to make it easier to submit websites to website directories by presenting links to the directories on the left hand side of the page and forcing the directories to load in the right hand side of the page. It doesn’t automatically fill out forms. It does mean you don’t need to switch back and forth between tabs.

Directory Search Tool

Uses a refined custom search engine (via Google) to facilitate locating directories connected with blogs, content management systems and other websites that are not specifically designed to be link directories i.e the directories set-up at regular websites for link trades. The idea is to ensure directories returned by the search engine have content that relates to specific keywords and phrases.

To use the search engine properly you must enter a search term in the search box then, after the search has been run, use one of the “Refine the search for..” buttons that are placed above the search results.
