Why Free Online Conversion Is So Important

Free Online File Conversion Made EasyBillions upon billions of files are shared throughout the world via the web everyday. Not too long ago though, many of the files shared with others were problematic. They were either troublesome for the recipient or the sender. In most cases, for both. The reason for some of these problems were due to the types of files that were being sent or shared. Some files were either too big, or in the wrong format. This is why in today’s world, free online conversion is so important.

 

For years, people had to contend with music, image or video files that were too big and took up too much space. These types of files also took a long time to download or upload as well. Worse of all, a lot of the files were in formats that some systems of devices did not recognize. That would make the files obsolete since they could not be viewed or used at all.

 

Ever wonder Why The Web Has So Many Different Image Formats?

 

Expensive File Converting Programs

 

Along the way, numerous companies began to take advantage of this chaotic file madness. They began selling really expensive file conversion software. Many companies and individual users had no other choice but to buy these file converting programs. Soon after, some websites began offering online conversion to people, but at a price. Those that wanted to convert their files to another format had to download and install programs on their computers from these sites. While some of the software was helpful, a vast majority of these programs were full of bloatware, adware, trojans, virus and even malware.

 

Free Online Conversion

 

One of the best things that finally came out of the entire need for file converting was free online conversion. These are legitimate sites that do not require you to download or install any software in order to convert your image, music, or video files. One the best online conversion sites available today is Online Convert. Here at Online Convert, you can convert just about any file you need to hundreds of other formats.

Tips For Selling Your Ebook

Tips For Selling Your Ebook
Image Credit by = http://bit.ly/1KnMwVt

One of the great things about the technological breakthroughs we have experienced in the last decade is the many opportunities created. The invention of ebooks has been one of those doors opened for writers. Before ebooks, it was very hard for writers to be able to have their work published. Now, anyone can easily create an ebook and sell it. But if you are new to the ebook industry, there are many things to learn. That means how do you go about selling it and getting it out there for people to see it, buy it and read it. Here are some great tips for selling your ebook which can help you do it.

 

 

Make Your Cover Great –

We have all heard the quote to never judge a book by its cover. However, when it comes to your book being sold, it does not apply. On the contrary, not having a great ebook cover page can end up costing you. A lot of ebooks never end up selling or generating buzz due to their bland covers. Writers need to keep in mind that the cover is most often the first thing a person sees. Take time and invest in getting an excellent and great ebook cover.

Give Out Free Copies

While you may find this approach hard to understand since you are looking to ‘sell’ your ebook, it works. However, one of the best ways for new authors to make it is by giving away free copies. For one, it will allow people to see just how good your work is. Secondly, you will generate buzz for your it as well. Giving away something for free is the best way to produce word of mouth. If you give out 30 free copies to your friends, it can do several things for you. For one, you can see if your writing is good enough by the feedback. Also, if you are good, you will have those people send the ebook to their friends. Before long, as more readers continue to share your ebook, it will increase your readership, following and recognition. You can do a limited time offer from 30 to 90 days. By the time you get to your second or third ebook, it will make selling it much more easier and faster.

 

Blog It Online –

The internet is the best thing to have happen to ebook authors and entrepreneurs. It gives them a platform to showcase whatever they are selling. You can write articles about your ebook and blog it on websites. You can also offer excerpts of your ebook on sites and blog communities catering to this genre. Posting articles will also give you name recognition and advertising. You will also improve your reputation and gain followers too. Keep in mind that doing this will not offer instant results. This process takes some time to work, but if done right, it does.

 

Use Multiple eBook Stores –

Most people know about the top selling ebook stores such as Amazon, Apple and B&N. However, getting your ebook there can be difficult when you are just starting out. But there are many other smaller ebook stores out there. Using them can boost your sales significantly. The more places you use to promote your book, the higher your chances to sell it will become.

 

Make Sure The Price Is Right –

Too many new authors make the mistake of wanting to get rich from their first ebook. They end up offering their book at a high price. While most ebooks on Amazon are sold at around $9.99, that doesn’t mean yours will sell for that price. Keep in mind that these are established and well known authors. Many new ebook writers offer their ebooks at $0.99 to start. While it may not make you a lot of money at first, it will get your work out there for the next book.

 

Other Tips To Consider –

Some other great tips to consider is partnering with ebook blogs and websites. These are sites dedicated to ebook junkies. Since there are so many ebook readers out there, this community is very powerful. You can quickly get your ebook out there. Other people join affiliate programs to sell their ebook online as well. Authors can also use social media outlets to promote and share their ebook. Some ebook writers subsidize their work with a cosponsor as well. They can end up promoting your ebook for you. Lastly, you can do paid advertising and pay for book reviews. Having just one great review can end up giving you some credibility and recognition.

How To Find The Best Audio Conversion Tool

Audio Converter
Image by http://bit.ly/2b7sYxj

There are several reasons of why you might need a good audio converter. Extracting audio from a video or turning a written text into audio are just two examples. Oftentimes, it’s simply because you have your music stored in a file format that your playing device or software does not recognize.

In these cases, you need a trusty audio converter that makes you you are getting exactly the file you need!

There are several programs you can download to your computer to convert audio files, as well as some few online services that offer audio conversion as well. To find the best one for your needs, we have gathered what you should take into consideration when choosing your methods and service of choice.

 

Find The Best Audio Converter For Your Purpose

The following questions should be taken into consideration before you install anything on your computer or before you take the time to add an app to your phone for a simple audio file conversion.

Many conversion programs, services and apps offer relatively similar features and mechanics. This means that the perfect one for you is out there as well! In order to find it, check each program and tool for its features and how they can meet your needs.

 

What audio files are supported?

There are many different audio formats out there. They all come with different specifications and serve different purposes. If you want to find out which format would be the best one for you, check out our blog post about which audio format to use.

Not all audio formats are supported by all audio converters. If you have an exotic file that is lesser known or common, it might be that some programs are not able to convert it. Likewise, you have to check what formats your file can be converted to. Some software only allow conversion to MP3. This is, of course, of no use when you need a lossless format like FLAC.

 

How efficient is the audio converter?

Most of the time, it’s not easy to say if something is efficient before you actually tried it. Yet, of course you want the best and most efficient tool for yourself. But do you want to go through several programs before you find it? Surely not. Thankfully, there are some clues to look for.

It’s safe to assume that the best developed and thus possibly also most efficient tool comes with many and unique features. An app or software program that can be used for a number of purposes instead of one is in the most cases more reliable and thus more competent.

 

How easy is the tool to use?

If you need a couple of audio files converted, you don’t want to spend hours on trying to find out how the program works, right? Of course you don’t. And why should you.

It’s normal that programs that offer more functions than just a simple conversion take a bit longer to understand, yet the simplicity of usage should be taken into consideration as well if you are choosing an audio converter program. Choose a program with clear instructions and an easy-to-follow workflow.

 

Any special system requirements?

An audio conversion program can be as good as it wants to be, if you are not able to use it on your device of choice, it’s worth nothing. Thus, the system requirements of the software is important.

Many program downloads are offered as versions for both Windows and Apple Mac. Likewise, you can find compatible audio converters in the app stores for Android and iOS. Yet, that’s not where it ends. Make sure to check thoroughly what the program you are about to download needs to run smoothly on your device. Otherwise, you lose a lot time and nerves on downloading, installing, de-installing and searching anew.

 

How much does an audio conversion cost me?

Of course, the price of a program is something many of us have an eye on. It’s normal that paid programs offer more than free downloads can. Value comes with a price. However, it is your decision if you need a professional tool with additional and maybe even exclusive features… Or if a simple converter is enough for you.

 

Why Online-Convert.com Is The Perfect Choice

Now that you read through the considerations above, have a look at why online-convert.com provides the perfect audio conversion tool for you:

Format support: All well-known and many lesser known file formats are supported. This means you can convert almost all audio files to the most used ones: AAC, AIFF, FLAC, M4A, MP3, OGG, OPUS, WAV and WMA. If you want to check whether you can convert your file, check out the online-convert.com search.

Efficiency: A high number of users speaks for itself, however the optional settings you get in addition to a simple audio conversion may be even more convincing. Online-convert.com allows you to change different settings in your conversion. Furthermore, different conversions for images, videos, documents and more are also available. Thus, online-convert.com can offer a feature that sets it apart from other conversion tools: cross conversion, where you can convert files across different file types as well! Read more about cross conversion here.

Simplicity: You will take some time until you find a tool that is easier to handle. All you have to do is choose the output format, upload your file and click on convert. Yes, that’s it!

System requirements: The convenient thing about online-convert.com is that you don’t need to download or install anything. This means that it doesn’t matter whether you are using it from a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or phone. All you need is a stable internet connection to use the audio converter.

For a little fee, you can convert bigger files as well, yet the free service already provides you the possibility to test if the service is what you are looking for.

The Online-Convert.com Premium Plans Unveiled!

screenshot-www.online-convert.com 2016-07-06 10-57-33

The conversion services of online-convert.com are free to use for everyone with a reliable internet connection. You don’t even need to sign up to convert your files into more common or compatible file types.

For those that want to do a little more with their files or have to convert files bigger than 100 MB, online-convert.com provides six plans that hold something for everyone.

Today, we want to look at them in some more detail. Of course, you can have a look at the quick overview here as well.

 

All You Need To Know About The Online-Convert.com Premium Plans

The six premium plans can be split into three different categories:

  1. Free Plan
  2. 24 Hour Passes
  3. Monthly Subscriptions

 

The Free Plan

The free plan is, as the name suggests, cost-free for the user. It allows you to convert files with a size up to 100 MB. Of course, registering for the free plan provides you with more features than using our service without being logged in.

These features include:

  • E-mail notification when a conversion is finished
  • Sending the download link of a converted file via e-mail
  • Send the converted file as an attachment via e-mail
  • A user dashboard with conversion overviews and links to all conversions of the past 24 hours
  • 4 concurrent conversions in separate tabs

 

The 24 Hour Passes

There are two 24 hour passe available. As the name already suggests, they are valid for 24 hours after purchase. This means that in these 24 hours you can use our service to the full extend of the plan, no matter how many files you are converting.

Of course the 24 hour passes have the same features as the free plan. Of course, they have additional features as well:

  • A 100% money back guarantee if you are not satisfied with our service
  • No advertisement on the pages
  • HTTPS-encrypted uploads and downloads
  • High priority conversion speed
  • 8 concurrent conversions in separate tabs

 

The features above apply to both 24 hour passes. Naturally, they differ from one another as well. Those features are listed below:

24h pass 24h pass (large)
  • Cost: $5
  • Convert files up to 800 MB
  • Cost: $10
  • Convert files up to 2 GB

 

The Monthly Subscriptions

The last three premium plans are monthly subscriptions. This means that they are valid for one month from the purchase on (e.g. from June 26, 2016 to July 26, 2016). These subscriptions are renewed automatically. This means the amount of money is deducted from your account one the plan runs out, extending it for another month. Of course this subscription can be cancelled any time!

The subscriptions provide the same features as the 24h passes, but they differ from one another:

Silver Gold Platinum
  • Cost: $7
  • Convert files up to 200 MB
  • High priority conversion speed
  • 5 concurrent conversions in separate tabs
  • Cost: $16
  • Convert files up to 400 MB
  • Higher priority conversion speed
  • 7 concurrent conversions in separate tabs
  • Cost: $49
  • Convert files up to 1 GB
  • Highest priority conversion speed
  • 10 concurrent conversions in separate tabs

 

When Should I Use Which Plan?

Now, knowing about all the features of the premium plans, comes the choice. Which plan is the best for your purpose? We help you to decide on the right one.

 

Free Plan – This plan is for all that want to convert smaller files ( <100 MB ) on a regular basis. Or for those that want to give our service a test run before purchasing one of the paid premium plans.

24 Hour Passes – These plans are for everyone who wants to convert a larger file or a few larger files. It’s perfect for one-time-users and casual users alike. These plans are a nice, occasional upgrade when your file is too big for the free plan.

Monthly Subscriptions – The automatically renewed subscriptions are perfect for regular users that have larger files they need to convert. Instead of buying a new 24h pass every other day, you don’t have to worry about renewal.

Why People Will Always Need Files & Conversion

Files Are Not Dead - Online Convert
Image Credit by = Creative Commons

 

 

Recently, there have been some well known businessmen in the digital & Internet industry who have said files are dead. However, we, and many others believe that is not the case. For this reason, we have put together this article showing why people will always need files & conversion in their digital and Internet world.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t Believe The Dead Files Hype

 

For many years now, numerous technologists, commentators and websites have been predicting the death of the file hierarchy as we know it. One of these people is Fred Wilson, an American businessman, venture capitalist and frequent Blogger. Fred Wilson is also the co-founder of Union Square Ventures. This is a New York City-based venture capital firm which has numerous investments in Web 2.0 companies and others as well. Fred and others argue about the availability users now have with programs such as Google Drive, Dropbox and many other icloud based services found online these days. To them, these programs represent a new way for people to save their data or make use of their digital media. The same folks also mention the rise of Netflix, YouTube, HBOgo and Spotify as the new reason why files will be obsolete soon.  However, we beg to differ on the strength of the vast rise in electronic devices which greatly need file conversion tools and software alone. There are also the many computers, laptops and other apparatus who need files and conversion to function properly.

Why Files Are Not Dead?

 

Imagine recording a video with either your cellular phone, tablet or any other device. These videos are normally recorded in MOV format (iPhone, iPad) or 3gp or mp4 on Android devices. Other cameras such as Canon, Panasonic or numerous different brands record on different formats. The one thing that remains the same however, is the huge size which these files end up being saved once they are recorded. Now imagine trying to upload or share the same video with someone? It will not only take a really long time to do so, but also the person receiving it will have to spend a long time downloading it as well. Furthermore, the other recipient may not even be able to play the video on his or her device if they are not compatible. One prime example would be an Android user sending a video to a person who uses an iPhone.  Also, Websites like Facebook and other social media favorites have a limit on the size of the videos users can upload to their sites. For these reasons alone we would always need file conversion.

Of course we would still have to go over other file formats and their need for conversion as well. Ebooks, audio, documents and images files require us to consider about them as well. How can you listen to audio files on one device if it’s not in the format your current device only allows? From MP3, MP4, WAV, OPUS, OGG, AAC, and many others audio formats, the choices and reasons for conversion are too numerous to count.
