Good stuff I found this week:

Premise – a tool from copyblogger that allows you to easily create and optimize a number of landing pages in any WordPress theme.

Good stuff I found this week:

MyVBO – Stands for Virtual Business Office, but this tool, pointed out by one of my readers, looks like the ultimate dashboard for managing marketing, including all your social media, as well as web analytics and financial data.

Hello Bar – this simple top of the page bar loads a gentle message for visitors to your site and can be a nice way to do things like increase newsletter subscriptions or point out recent happenings. I’ve seen it crop up this week on ChrisBrogan.com and MariSmith.com

Zipcast Meetings – this is an incredible add-on to Slideshare that allows you to launch an online presentation using any slides you’ve uploaded to Slideshare. No downloads, no browser or non Mac issues, instant online presentation – this should be huge.

Good stuff I found this week:
