Best Online Business Tools I Use and Recommend

Best Online Business Tools I Use and Recommend | Work Anywhere NowAs 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


Wealthy Affiliate | Work Anywhere NowWealthy Affiliate – best training platform to learn about affiliate marketing and how to build an online business to make money online.

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.

 

DOMAIN NAMES


godaddyGoDaddy – 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


HostGator | Work Anywhere NowHost 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.

 

EMAIL AUTO-RESPONDER


Aweber | Work Anywhere NowAweber – 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.

Using Aweber is key for affiliate marketing as others like MailChimp don’t allow affiliate marketing.  Read my full review of AWeber here or sign up here for your free trial at Aweber now!

 

KEYWORD SEARCH TOOL


Jaaxy Best Free Keyword ToolJaaxy.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.

You can sign up HERE for Jaaxy for FREE and no need for credit card at registration or read my full review HERE!

 

 

I hope you really like the online business tools I have been using and will try it out for yourself.  For any successful online business, one must have the right tools!  If I can use these tools for this website, you can also build yourself your own website in any niche.  Know that this page is updated all the time to ensure you have the latest and greatest tools for your blog.

    Hi, Grace,

    Thanks for the article…you have some great suggestions here. I use some of them currently but all of them at some point or another…my favorite of them all would have to be Wealthy Affiliate 🙂

    I liked all of your recommendations, a couple I was not familiar with, but will check it out.
    When I very first logged onto your site, I was trying to figure out what kind of tools there could be, but you have a very nice line-up and is good to show others that these are indeed tools, most people just don’t think of them that way. Good luck to you and your enterprise.

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now November 30, 2016 at 9:00 am #

      Hello Barbara, thanks for stopping by and checking out my tools! Glad you like them all and will check some out. 🙂 Appreciate your support!

    Very useful and I did learn some useful stuff ! I am already a member of WA and I sure can say that I recommend them. She seems to know what she is talking about and this article is very pertinent. If I were you guys I would give it a try. I love the way your website is light and clear. Nothing is overwhelming and it’s easily readable.

    Wish you all the best

    Jp 🙂

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now November 30, 2016 at 9:02 am #

      Hi Jean, Thanks for your kind words, appreciate them! Glad you like my site, and can navigate it easily. 🙂 Hope you’ll use some of the other tools too I recommended here.

    Great article Grace! It’s definitely hard trying to navigate the “laptop lifestyle” but you definitely can’t go wrong with Wealthy Affiliate. I’ll definitely be checking out some of your recommendations.

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now November 30, 2016 at 8:24 pm #

      Yay, thanks so much Houston! I hope you do check them out, I only started using these tools because the best of the best of online marketers were using them too. 🙂

  8. Yvonne November 30, 2016 at 11:51 pm #

    I am keen to have a website hosted outside of WA in future. How do you find the speed of your websites hosted in Host Gator compared with WA?

    For email marketing, I’m using MailChimp and I like that there isn’t any payment required till there are 2,000 subscribers. The only drawback is, there is no technical support for the free plan. Thanks for sharing all these great tools!

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now December 1, 2016 at 12:14 am #

      Hi Yvonne,

      Thanks for your comment! When I’ve heard of people having problems on Wealthy Affiliate (I think they were having a huge update), I don’t have those problems. I’ve only experienced one down time in the 8 years I’ve been with HostGator. Their speed is fast and I love hosting unlimited sites on it.

      Yes, MailChimp is free for the first 2000 subscribers and I’ll have a more detailed review of Aweber soon to compare, but Aweber’s support was pretty quick already in their reply when I had a problem with my set up. They also offer a great affiliate program there too plus resources to learn about email marketing. All popular and successful bloggers that I’ve known uses Aweber as well. 🙂 I’m pretty happy with them so far.

      Appreciate you stopping by!

    Hi, Grace,
    You have been in the Online business for a long time. It is kind ou you to write about the tools you used so other people can try them too.

    I used some of those tools, I will take a look at the others to see if they can be of help to me.
    Unlike you I just started 6 months ago so it is good to connect with someone as experienced as you
    Thanks for sharing.

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now December 3, 2016 at 3:02 pm #

      Hi Luna, Appreciate your thoughts here! I’m glad I can be of help and that you can try some new tools for your site too. 🙂 I love helping others, so please connect with me anytime!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  12. Stephanie Harris December 3, 2016 at 9:23 am #

    Thanks for letting me know about these tools Grace, as a member of Wealthy Affiliate I don’t need them at the moment, but they will be useful to have as we never know what the future will bring us. The fact that they all come with such glowing reviews is good as well.:-))Steph

    • Grace | Work Anywhere Now December 3, 2016 at 3:08 pm #

      Thank you Stephanie! Hope you can use these other tools in the future. Although I’m a Premium member of Wealthy Affiliate, I’m self hosted, so these are great tools if you want to go solo later on. But, being at Wealthy Affiliate, you don’t need half of these tools. However, adding an email auto-responder is important for your online business so consider using them soon.

      Grace
