So in this review we are going to take a look at Explaindio and why we think it is so good.
In the video below you can see an example of why I think Explaindio is quite so powerful:
In this second video we take a look at more of Explaindio‘s features:
What we love is the fact you can add animations over live video… There are a couple of minor issues with this.
My biggest problem I think is the fact that you can only remove the previous animation and you can’t group them together. This means that you are in danger of having too much text on the page at any one time. I am hopeful that this will be improved in a future release.
The only other issue that I am so far aware of is that the text can’t be displayed in a right to left format.
Assuming they can fix the issue where you can’t remove the existing elements on a video without losing the background video there is little for me that means this won’t be a long term keeper. As it is I really like what I can do and think it is a lot of fun.
It will be interesting to see how this develops in the future.
I am still in the process of finalising these…
However they include the following:
1) The software already comes with some royalty free music but I have added in a selection of additional tracks.
2) Access to my Video Marketing Mastermind and my core principles of Video Marketing Guide
3) Youtube Marketing Training
4) Some additional background loop videos
5) Some additional graphics
6) A copy of my guide which I am finishing up now on how to make presentations and videos really work well.

Keyword XP is the latest update to Paul Clifford’s successful Keyword Research tool, and in Version 3 an incredibly useful feature has been released, which will make this one of my regularly used software tools.
Along with a standard keyword research tool, Keyword XP does the following:
What really makes Keyword XP stand out however is the Viral Headline Generator. I start looking at that at around the 2 minute 30 mark in the below video.
Whether you already have a keyword tool or not, this viral headline generator is what makes Keyword XP a must have to my mind.
Although I also like the suggest tool, which comes up with great keywords from Google, Bing, Ebay, Amazon, Youtube, and Ask. Amazon and Ebay can be very useful as it really helps you drill down into key buying terms.
Anyway let’s take a quick look at Keyword XP in action

Probably one of the best value products I have come across.
Video Maker FX is the brainchild of Peter Roszak and he has managed to do make something pretty complicated very simple.
Its like a cross between Powtoons, Video Scribe, PowerPoint, Prezi and Adobe After Effects combined into a killer combination.
Whether you do the ocassional video for clients, or you want the odd video for yourself this is a tool you are going to want.
I have done a brief video demonstration below, although I am not totally sure this does it complete justice.
You can also see various different samples of videos on the sales page.
Suffice it to say though I love this software and know that it will give me a huge return on my investment.
1) A copy of a plugin of mine called Subscriber Gifts, this is designed to add a youtube subscribe button to your blog… with one small catch… once the user subscribes you can thank them. Unfortunately Youtube expressly deny you to offer a prize or a reward to get someone to click the subscribe button but there is nothing that I can see that stops you from saying thank you and even offering a gift… once they subscribe. This is hot off the drawing board and was developed at the suggestion of one of our customers. To be honest had we been better at reading the terms, we may not have developed it… but either way I do like it and believe that used the way we suggest it has huge power.
2) The software already comes with some royalty free music but I have added in a selection of additional tracks.
3) Access to my new Video Marketing Mastermind
4) Youtube Marketing Training
5) Some additional background loop videos
6) Some additional graphics
Pick up your Copy below:
Video Maker FX is really very powerful.
The video below gives a brief demonstration…
There are three niggles but none of these make this not a brilliant purchase… I think that this is some of the best software I have seen being sold online, especially for this price!
Other than that this is extremely well thought out and allows you and I to create really professional looking videos in a very short period of time.

So I picked up a copy of Ben Adkin’s Exit Pop this morning.
And I have to say I am impressed.
I struggled in the past setting up exit pops and found the whole process enormously frustrating. I suspect I spent something like 2 days of my life trying to get them to work the way I wanted them to.
If only this had been around then!
For those who don’t know an exit pop is one of those dialogue boxes that pop up when you leave a website. Many people say they absolutely hate them and indeed if used the wrong way I have been known to get angry at them myself… and thats as a marketer who appreciates good marketing tactics.
The idea behind them is that they keep people on your site and increase the chance of you being able to convert visitors into customers, which is ultimately the main reason most of us have websites.
Watch my Exit Pop Review video and read on to find out what I think makes it great and where I think it could be better:
What makes Exit Pop Great
1) Multiple exit pops from a central dashboard, really easy to monitor and make changes on the fly.
2) The ability to have a custom link that will put an exit pop on practically any site – See my link which will on exiting the sales page if you don’t buy encourage you to come back here to read my review!
3) The ability to have more than one exit pop on your site so once someone has seen one, the next time they visit the site they will see another.
4) Ease of use – just very easy to use, nothing to install, fast to use.
What makes Exit Pop less good
1) Currently it works well on Internet Explorer, Chrome and my mobile phone… but there is an issue of some sort on Firefox. The team are aware of it and are working on getting it to work properly. It does give an exit pop but gives a different message.
2) It is hosted on someone elses server, this is both a good and a bad point. If something goes wrong then you will lose access to your exit pops. However it means you don’t need to worry about maintenance, and adding in updates etc.
3) This is the first time it has been released so there will be improvements coming.
Overall I believe this to be a fantastic product and I feel confident that it will do wonderful things for your conversions.
If you buy Exit Pop through my link (www.findthis.at/exitpop) I will do the following:
1) Give you a multisite copy of our plugin WP Insights
2) Give you a copy of the plugin I am having done to make it easy to specific pages and posts on your your WordPress sites
3) If you can’t get the support you need I will help you with Exit Pop and ensure you can use it to it’s full potential.

Frankly this is an absolute steal at the price it is being sold for currently.
I recorded a brief video which you can see below but I would just go and get a copy before they start charging for monthly access:
Pick up a copy and I will give you two additional graphics packs. One is for creating infographics and the other is a new pack of graphics for Facebook….
Just let us know along with a copy of your receipt and we will send it out to you.

Kudani is an Air Based software tool enabling you to do the following:
Kudani is available as an annual payment or in monthly payments. At the time of writing this the pricing is $197 a year or $37 a month.
There is also an upsell for some additional software.
In this video we do a brief overview of Kudani and how it works…
Someone asked me what I meant by committed to blogging and I wrote this which you might find useful as to whether or not you should invest in Kudani:
As a breakdown Kudani currently costs $197 for a years access. Now say it saves you 10 minutes on average writing a blog post and you value your time at say $50 an hour. So every blog post you write saves you $8.33. Now if you only plan on writing 20 blog posts a year then the cost equates to around $170… So it might not make sense to spend $197… Whereas if you write a minimum of one content curated blog post a week then it would start to become really valuable.
That time saving is an example, and so it could save you more than that…. Indeed one of my customers suggested it could save 10 hours! Probably an exaggeration, but still, it does show how valuable Kudani is.
If you have outsourcers who you can train to use it, it then starts to become a really valuable tool.
Now we should all aim to be writing at least one blog post a week… but I know that I don’t necessarily write that many… and of the ones that I do write not all are based on curation, so for me to get value for money for my investment I need to increase the number of blog posts we are putting out.
Let’s see how it goes…
As to you and whether or not you should buy Kudani if you aren’t doing a lot of blogging then I am not sure you can justify the cost, although my bonuses below might help! :).

Ten Minute Pages is a browser based web editor, specifically for creating sales pages, landing/optin pages, thank you pages and download pages.
It has taken ten years of development to get to this point, about the same length of time WordPress has been around!
It has a wide range of templates (approximately 1000) and it saves a huge amount of time when designing sales pages, squeeze pages, and other funnel related pages. Indeed last night I was helping a friend with some customisation of an Optimize Press template…. The same thing would have taken me less than 2 minutes to do in Ten Minute Pages rather than 30 minutes in Optimize Press… and that is from someone who knows what he is doing… If you ever struggle with the technical aspect of website design then Ten Minute Pages will be a life saver for you!
Whilst it seems on the outset to be quite expensive, when you take into account the amount of time it saves you creating pages and the fact that their templates have been split tested for maximum conversions it starts to become really very good value.
Ten Minute Pages is being released with three different options. A Starter option which limits you to one site, an Unlimited site license which is for as many sites as you want and an Ultimate Package that comes with some neat additional features like Facebook pages, Mobile Templates, additional graphics, exit pops and scarcity timers. I have some neat bonuses for this which you can find out more about later in this post.
When I do these product reviews I always try and pull out bad points. In the case of Ten Minute Pages I have found it incredibly hard to find any…
However these are the niggles that I have with it:
Optimize Press vs Ten Minute Pages
Optimize Press is a theme, and has been for a while the market leader in WordPress based design solutions. Whilst it is powerful to be able to make changes can take a long time. There is a new version of Optimize press coming out soon, which looks like a vastly superior version to the first Optimize Press, which is not to say that the first version was bad… just that the new version is better!
The old version was very dependent on ShortCodes, which are time consuming to set up, and also not quick to make sure that they look the way you want them to. With Ten Minute Pages it is literally what you see is what you get!
Optimize Press is a WordPress theme, which is both a blessing and a curse. Because it is based on WordPress load times will be a lot slower than pages created with Ten Minute Pages.
Sales Press Pro vs Ten Minute Pages
Sales Press Pro is another WordPress theme similar to Optimize Press. It is again a solid solution and the points above re Optimize Press are pretty much the same as they are with Ten Minute Pages.
Lead Pages vs Ten Minute Pages
Lead Pages is probably the closest competitor to Ten Minute Pages in that both are HTML solutions that load fast. However Ten Minute Pages has a wider range of templates, and is more flexible in terms of what you can do. Ten Minute Pages is very much what you see is what you get, and Lead Pages is more template driven. Both are solid solutions, but I believe Ten Minute Pages has the overall advantage.
The other difference is that Lead Player is a hosted solution so you either pay monthly or annually and your pages are hosted on their servers. With Ten Minute Pages all your pages are on your own webhosting.
You can buy Ten Minute Pages from the URL below:

Now on with the review:
If you know that you will be able to use this then this is not a bad buy. In looking at buying this I looked at some of the alternatives…. Which ranged from a similar price to this all the way up to $2,000. Most were in the range of $92 to $300.
When you take into account the marketplace and the predone deals then this could be a useful product for you if you are an online marketer. If you sell to local businesses and have something like a local Business Directory or some local websites then this could also be a useful service to sell to them. Having said that it is a competitive marketplace so you should do some research first to see if your existing clients or prospective new ones would be interested in a service like this.

It seems as though everyone and their dog is releasing Video Players these days. As a bit of a Sucker for online Video I have bought what seems to be all of them, although I am confident that there are several I haven’t tried.
At the moment I have and am using:
I thought I would give them all a quick run through. There is no doubt in my mind that everyone working online needs at least one of these. The video below looks at all of them and you can skip to the different reviews using the Easy Video Suite Powered Chapters on the timeline, or scroll down and watch the individual videos.
The only one of these that does something substantially different is Covert Video Player and so if you have one of the others this is the one you should check out.
Alternatively later on this page are individual videos demonstratng the various video players.
If you find this video useful it would be great if you would share it!
I have started with Easy Video Suite because it is really the big daddy of them all. It has also been around for the longest in different iterations, being the successor to the revolutionary Easy Video Player released back in I believe 2009.
Easy Video Player has been superseded by Easy Video Suite. Easy Video Suite does quite a bit more than Easy Video Player, but it is also quite a lot more expensive and costs substantially more than any of the others.
Other teething problems I have had with it are that I can’t seem to get the desktop video uploader to work on the several videos I have so far tried. One of these was a GoToWebinar recording, the other was the Camtasia Video Recording you can see above.
For the price of $297 plus a $97 optional upgrade to get the commercial license I had expected a more fluid process.
Having said that Easy Video Suite is immensely powerful and if you see yourself doing lots with videos there are several reasons you should consider buying it over the others.
1) With the Commercial License you can let 10 of your clients have access to it. One of the people I work with has told me that he will be charging his clients $300 a month for this, so if you have high end clients this could be very valuable.
2) You can create some stylish stand alone pages for your videos.
2) It comes with a Desktop based application that you can use for both webcam recording and screen captures.
3) It will encode your videos in the most effective manner for playing online.
Like most of the other players here Easy Video Suite will play videos hosted on YouTube and Vimeo. Unlike most of the others it integrates very well with Amazon S3.
I have a fairly extensive bonus for Easy Video Suite which you can get access to by clicking on the link.
Video Mate, Simple Video Player, Traffic Player and Lead Player all do something similar. I have ordered them in ranking of pricing. They all work with youtube videos and allow you to play your videos in different ways.
Below you can see each of these Video Players in Action:
Video Mate comes in as the cheapest of the different Video Player Alternatives. With a Multisite licence at just $27 and a Developer License at just $47.
You can pick up your copy at www.findthis.at/videomate
Simple Video Player is also very competitively priced. Starting at $67 for a single use site up to $97 for a Developer license.
You can pick up your copy at www.findthis.at/simplevideopro
Traffic Player starts at $87 for a Multisite License and goes up to $137 for a developer license.
You can pick up your copy from www.findthis.at/trafficplayer
Lead Player is one of the more expensive Video Players on the market, and whilst it does work very well I am not convinced whether the price necessarily justifies it’s more limited feature set. However if you like the style of this video it is worth taking a look at.
You can find Lead Player at www.leadplayer.com
It will essentially add in smaller thumbails of videos in various styles… similar to the one above. There are also examples that will pop up and more. I really like the way that this plugin works.
You can either watch via the small thumbnail above or you can watch the video below. (This final video plays via a free youtube plugin by the exceptional Vladimir Prelovac called Smart Youtube.
You can pick up your copy below:
I hope you have found this look at the various video players useful. If money is no object then you should get Easy Video Suite. If you are on a budget then Video Mate is the clear winner.
Covert Video Player is slightly different to the rest as it does do something very different to the rest…. Easy Video Suite can almost do what Covert Video Player does on a single video basis, but not on a Video Curation type basis.
