    Microsoft Office 07 or 2010. Word for eBooks. PowerPoint for slide shows.

    Open Office is free and has similar tools.

          For Video Creation:
          Mac: I use screen flow
          PC: I used Camtasia - powerful yet expensive
          Video Slide Shows? - Well look in my signature

          Slide show creation:
          Powerpoint
          Keypoint
          Google Docs - Not as powerful as the others but if you are on a budget...

          Membership sites:
          Digital Access Pass - Still think it is the most powerful wp membership app available (IMO)
          On a budget? You can do it with Drupal and a shopping cart plugin or Amember has it free as well.

          Graphics
          Photoshop
          Pixlr - if you are on a budget
          GIMP - on a budget but had a hard time getting used to it

          Email Marketing
          Ecommerce and Local - Mailchimp
          IM and Affiliate Marketing - Aweber
          Get Response is good too
          Stay away from Constant Contact
          You can run an auto responder off of your own hosting but be careful of the limits your host has on number of emails to go out

          eBooks
          Office - word - Save as .pdf
          Google Docs
          InDesign - if you have a large budget

          Audio
          Blue Snowball USB microphone and a pop shield

    Microsoft Office Initially, and then simply Save as a PDF.
    For my Sales Thread Graphics, Photoshop . [GIMP is Free, and Will help you out here if you can't afford photoshop]
    For Videos I use Camtasia. Free alternatives are available, But IMO Camtasia is the best.

    For PDFs/e-books: Libre Office LibreOffice 4.1 is here! (not an affiliate link). It's free like OpenOffice but can open and save in more formats.
    Camtasia for screen capture videos - although Activepresenter Free Edition Free Edition - Advanced Screencast & Rapid eLearning Authoring Tool (not an affiliate link either) is a good alternative.
    Adobe Photshop for graphics

    In creating an ebook in PDF form, you can use the Microsoft Word and just save it in PDF form. But you need to have this plugin installed called SaveAsPDFandXPS. Just Google it.

    For creating a slideshow video, use a screen capture software like Jing or Camtasia. You can play the slide next to another and talking or narrating more information about the content of your slide. You can use Microsoft Power Point in creating the slides.

    But you can also outsource it to companies who offers Video Production services like myself.

    I've started using Scrivener for my products, downside is there is a little bit of a learning curve to make the most of it. It's a good way to break your written products into chunks, set targets and put larger products together.
