If you’re looking for the latest creative possibilities and want to take your online marketing campaign to the next level, try this combination:
AdWords-style PPC + YouTube Promoted Video + YouTube Site Takeover = Big Impact.
It’s not as inexpensive as Google AdWords, but this combination can deliver an extremely creative message to an enormous captive audience in real time.

Have you ever received an email that has been forwarded several times and you wanted to reply to all? It’s a pain in the you-know-where to copy and paste all the email addresses manually.
So I made a tool that rips email addresses from arbitrary text.
Enjoy, and don’t abuse it. I don’t support sending SPAM. That is NOT what this tool is for. It is also not for harvesting email addresses from websites. If you are engaging in this type of behavior, you should read this post.
