As you build your online business you will come across a lot of products, so I wanted to let you know what I use and recommend because their services have been excellent and I have not had much complaint about them at all so, to me, they are the best online business tools you can have by your side! 🙂
Hope you’ll enjoy this page and know that if I can use these tools to succeed, so can you too!
AFFILIATE MARKETING TRAINING & WEB HOSTING
Not only do they have step-by-step courses but they have the best community so willing to help you every step of the way.
There are so many more benefits to them and you can visit my full review for all the details HERE.
GoDaddy – I’ve been buying domains from them since 2008 and at the time, either they didn’t offer web hosting or their plans were expensive, so I only purchased domains from them. Will keep them on as my domain name purchase go-to place as I don’t want to put all my eggs in one basket, if you know what I mean. 🙂
Their service has been top notch and site is easy to navigate, highly recommend them for any service they offer, but I’ve only used their domain name service. Check out my full review of GoDaddy HERE.
SELF WEB HOSTING
Host Gator – They have hosted my sites since 2009 and their service has been awesome. Their Baby Plan that I’m on is still what I have, works out to like $8/month now, but if you’re a new member, you can start as low as $2.50 per month!
What I love about their plan was that I can use their “Add-on” domain feature and basically add as many website as I wanted to. Their plans are so vast, I don’t think you can run out.
If you host with them but bought your domain from GoDaddy, I have a post HERE that tells you how to get your domain to point to HostGator in order for your domain URL to be hosted at HostGator.
WORD PRESS THEME
Canvas – To be fair, I have experience with WooCommerce – creating online shops, so I found this theme to be very responsive, easy to use and I use it on multiple sites.
I had started blogging briefly and then turned to handmade products and now I’m back to blogging with affiliate marketing, this theme has been my trusted friend through it all.
This site you’re on is using Canvas, and if you want to see what a shop looks like with this theme, see jessicadolls.com, my doll shop. If you end up using it, please contact me if you need any help setting it up.
Aweber – I haven’t used these guys for that long, just a few months, but from what I can see they are the best out there. They have training videos for you to learn how to use them and they offer you a free month trial.
I have started a couple of lists but need to add more email series to them. If you ever get stuck on what to write in your email series, they have this training for it too HERE.
Remember, email marketing is a powerful tool to have in your back pocket whether you use Aweber or not. You get into people’s inbox, opt-in too, and you’ll be able to sell to them over and over again if you can provide your audience with great useful information.
KEYWORD SEARCH TOOL
Jaaxy.com – this is definitely the best keyword search tool out there! I will tell you why:
1) Organic Traffic – if you want free organic traffic to your blog, you must use keywords in your posts and pages. Using this tool, you will find the right keywords to use very quickly and a lot of them.
2) Easy Parameters – they have measurements for keywords that will tell you what’s good to use and what’s not, based on search volume, traffic if you were on first page of Google, and QSR score which shows you how many websites out there are using this keyword or keyword phrase.
3) Website Ranking – base on the keywords you want to rank for, it can tell you where you rank on Google at a particular time.
SOCIAL MEDIA AUTOMATION
I use an automation software to do a lot of the growing and interacting for me called MassPlanner. It is PC based or you can run it on a VPS if you don’t have a PC and have a Mac. This software is very powerful and can take care of all your social media accounts: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, Pinterest, and LinkedIn.
I’m just getting into the Facebook modules to share my Facebook Page posts to different Facebook groups to gain page likes and traffic that way.
Not only grow, you can interact with your audience and potential followers by having it like, share, and comment on people’s posts in your niche for you.
This is just the tip of the iceberg, see my full detailed review and a video walk through >> HERE!
