SmartDD is a awesome looking tool that allows merchants to sell digital products without people sending the download link to all their friends (or worse, posting it at digg.com ). What it does it when someone purchases the product, it emails them a dynamic link. When the download is done, the link is inactivated. The following the smartdd follows up via email to make sure the download was successful. The best part of this software is there is a free version for those who only have a few items. You can try it and in the event you need more flexibility you can upgrade to the full version for around 75 bucks. Sign up for Free Version
Ticket Desk Pro
Another cool script I am now using is Ticket Desk Pro. This is an amazing piece of software for the price (less than 20 bucks when I purchased it). This has a ticketing system, a F.A.Q. feature, a “frequent responses” feature, and a LIVE HELP option. I really figured it was too good to be true till I saw it on the Download Guard site (and I know Sam wouldn't use it if it wasn't quality). Check it out at ticketdeskpro.com They are using an interesting script that raises the price by a nickel (.05) every time someone purchases the script. Very interesting. That script will become available on Thursday 5/16/ at www.frankhaywood.com
Make WordPress Themes From Scratch
I found a great article in Website Magazine (it's free, and its awesome subscribe today). It has a list of online (and offline) WordPress Theme generation tools.
http://www.wordpressthemegen.com/ (offline tool).
The WordPress Theme Gen tool allows you to create themes offline. The rest of the tools provide you with the ability to create WordPress themes online quickly and easily.
