Why Tools and Technology?

Its difficult to function without technology today– but on the other hand, theres so much of it. And it alters so often, its hard to know what to invest your time in knowing and studying because its here to stay and what you need to simply look at as it powers down into oblivion.

With the conference complete, the AskALLi group are sharing their highlights from the weekend.
Orna Ross, Director of ALLi
Ornas highlight of the conference was:
pulling together the top 100 tools selected by our members, team and consultants. It was mind-blowing for me, there were a couple of actually choice tools on the list, like Krisp, noise-cancelling innovation advised by Sacha, which cuts out background audio if youre doing a podcast or tape-recording an audiobook. I had not become aware of http://OneLook.comj which as John Doppler states is a set of “power tools for wordsmiths [and] the flexibility of its conceptual thesaurus puts Roget to embarassment.” Also loving The Noun Project suggested by Sarah Begley, an excellent collection of iconography for any kins of interaction– email, newsletter, book– and a visual variety and inclusion mission. Theyre “building a global visual language that unites us”, they say. Wonderful!
I also want to provide a shoutout to our sponsors. Gold sponsor Ingram Spark, revealed a new global tool and enhancements to their control panel. Prestozon, a tool for handling Amazon advertisements, was joint silver sponsor with ProWritingAid and Fictionary (both pointed out listed below and in the deep discounts list). And we likewise adore BetaBooks (for handling your beta readers), Kobo (for their worldwide reach and excellent publishing platform), Litring (for utilizing giveaways to grow readers), Payhip (for offering direct), Plottr (for planning your book), PubVendo (for handling your social networks) and Written Word Media for promoting your books.

” Clayton Noblits session on Marketing Plans was life-changing for me as it not only “puts you back in the driving seat”, as he put it, but also reignited my enthusiasm for marketing with an exceptionally basic formula that I began to use the minute his talk completed!”
