Curious what technology a website uses? This handy dandy FREE website gives you an instant report of all the platforms, widgets, analytics, plug-ins, etc. on a given website. It’s a great way to clean up a website that may have accumulated a lot of extra, unneeded technology.

There are a ton of free countdown timers on the web, but this one tops my list. Simply enter your deadline, colors and voila, you have a timer you can embed in emails or websites. For a small fee – $10, you can even track eyeballs on your timer.

Who doesn’t love a beautiful gallery on a website? Problem is, not everyone has the skillset to build them. Enter this great website … Cincopa. This service allows you to build beautiful, fully interactive galleries and embed them on your website with no coding experience needed. It’s great for photo and videos. You can customize the fonts and colors to match your branding. Plans start at just $25 per month.
