Cool little tech tools for your business

FOR those who follow me know I'm an advocate for business education, but all education must be backed up with practical implementation.

No point in knowing all this great stuff unless you apply what you've learned into your business right.

Over the weekend I spent an incredible three days in Sydney with the Business Blueprint team. Imagine more than 300 like-minded business owners coming together - powerful stuff.

If you're in business, you'll probably know the one thing most of us have in common: time, or specifically the lack of. While the conference themes were around systems to assist you in business, there were a few cool tech tools that I thought I'd share with you.

Over the coming weeks I'll go through a few of these fantastic little online tools.

The first tech tool is Headline Analyser (

What this does is allow you to pop in headlines for online sale content and copy.

This tool will go through and analyse key phrases, engagement, rankings etc and give you a score.

As a loose example, if you put in "how to write a book" the score is 58 out of 100, changed to "how to write a book in 30 days", you'll score 68 and "how to write a best selling book" the score would be 73, giving you a better chance of customer engagement. Not an exact science, but an excellent guide to how your headline will engage online.

The second great little tool is, basically a lead generation site for a web developer, but a very cool tool.

Go to this site, type in your web address and someone (yes, a real person) will call you and give you an honest appraisal of your web site.
