I've talked about tools that will create videos of your visitors as they visit your site. The WP Clicks plugin is a great plugin, and there are no monthly fees. The only issue is you only get to watch what the visitor is doing. You have to guess what they are thinking.
I found and used usertesting.com this is a great service where you order your review, and select the type of person you are looking to target, add any tasks you might want them to do (I had them pretend to sign up at the School of Podcasting) and in about an hour you get a video. It was nice to hear the good as well as any confusion that might be going on when people visit. In my case I had a description of my product that didn't match the description if you used the 2checkout link.
I placed more order and soon got a link where I could login and watch my visitor got to my site and not only navigate around but talk and give their impressions. This is very cool, and I will be using this service in the future. The cost is $39. For more information go to usertesting.com

A few episodes ago I spoke about bufferapp which spread outs your tweets over time. It doesn't tell you when the best time to tweet is.

Tweet Old Posts
While bufferapp.com is a cool tool if you have a large amount of information that you want to spread over time, but what if you DON'T have NEW content, but want to reuse your old content? The WordPress Plugin Tweet Old Posts will help. You can specify how old a post needs to be, how old it can be (or let it tweet any age). You then specify how many hours delayed in between tweets. You can use a URL shortener.
The latest version is 4.01 and if you download it from WordPress you get version 3 (something). To get this from the developer GO HERE.
