      I have tried several and also settled on Mindjet's Mindmanager. I have version 7.
      I use mindmaps for plotting out plans for my future projects and also for workflow for current business projects. I also use mindmapping to make book reports of books I read so that I have the main points available in a concise manner.
      Check out the mindmap gallery at to get more ideas.

    Freemind is great (and free). You can easily add icons, links. And it's leaf expanding/contracting makes it great for demoing products and systems.

    I abolutely LOVE Mindjet Mindmanager version 7.

    I often take sections of mindmaps and incorporate
    them into products, or email them to clients or
    partners, when trying to explain something :-)

    Funny how confused we are these days that we need some software to manage our minds..

    As for me I haven't used any software yet, what I do is I draw those circles and their connections in paper and post them infront of me..Barbaric eh..

    Better try new technologies..

      Freemind does everything I need.

      As far as what I use it for. First, organizing projects, launches, ebooks, etc. It's sticky notes on steroids. Second, I use it for meetings with offline clients. It walks them through a series of questions, and makes the process less boring, and much more engaging and interactive with the customers. Mine is designed to lead the customer toward either 1) redesigning their existing website (if it's not functional now) or 2) promoting the existing website (if it's in good shape).

      At the end of the day, the most valuable aspect to a well done mindmap is that it quickly shows the customer that you have (and showed up with) a plan .. something which most customers don't have! That in itself is worth the price of admission!

    I've been using MindManager for quite a while now. The latest version even lets you generate "live" maps as SWF files that can be embedded in PDFs, posted to web sites, or shared via email.

    They also have a service that lets you collaborate over the web.

    Yes, I like XMind as well.

    Mind Mapping is great for reminding you of all the CONNECTIONS between things. For example, I have a mind map on TRAFFIC, which reminds me of how things link up or are inter-related.

    Every time I learn a new technique, I add it to my mind map, which serves both as a reminder, and so I can see how best to apply it.

    1. Lack Of Strategy Many of the tools available to Internet marketers are either cheap or free. As a result, many new marketers are tempted to use them all at once. Successful Internet marketers begin with a strategy that identifies the goals of a campaign, the target audience and other key planning elements. Only then do they choose their tactics. Remember: tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.

    Hopefully someone can enlighten me on something that I'm confused about it. So when it comes to CPM, from an advertisers point-of-view, they pay for every 1,000 impressions of their ad. Now their ad is viewed on multiple sites. So let's say it's viewed 100 times on Site A, 200 times on site B, 300 times on site C, and 400 times on site D. Once that happens, the advertiser pays. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that is how that works? From the perspective of a publisher is where I'm more confused. So if I'm displaying CPM ads on my site, am I paid everytime the ad is viewed on my site or does the ad have to be displayed 1,000 times on my site before I get paid?

    When people think of the term copywriter they will often imagine someone sitting at home or at a caf, tapping away at a laptop and churning out good copy for their immediate employer whether it be a one-off project or a long-standing relationship between a publication (online or print) and the copywriter. Now that might often be correct, but there are different types of copywriters out there. Lets have a look at the main types.

    In this online age, being a copywriter is fast becoming a viable means of earning an income, sometimes even from the comfort of your own home. It is one of the few industries today where further education (usually a tertiary qualification, such as a degree in journalism or marketing) is not the be all and end all of being hired as a copywriter, although it can be handy. More importantly however, is being a capable and creative writer; one who can demonstrate ability and the right attitude to prospective employers. Below are a few basic but helpful tips for any burgeoning copywriters out there.

    Anyone who's read any of my recent posts will know that my focus on the moment is optimising my site and doing all I can to improve my ranking with the search engines. It's something I, mistakenly, didn't put as a priority when I first started and now I'm feeling the effects of that. But we live and learn and I'm happy to say I'm learning pretty darn quickly at the moment! Anyway I've got someone writing a series of blogs for me which are going to help with having regularly updated content, and I've been doing a bit of research on how to boost the ranking if they're just uploaded to my regular Wordpress site. I feel like I've wasted quite a lot of crucial time with this so I'm going hell for leather on it now.
