Below you will find all of the resources I use to help me build my business online. All of the resources help me in one way or another to work smarter and not harder. I want to complete my work as fast as possible and stay organized throughout so all of these resources help me do just that.
I only recommend tools & services that I have experience with so everything mentioned below gets my full backing.
Getting your site online is a breeze when using Bluehost. It is the hosting provider I always recommend when you are starting out. Support is great and always fast to respond to any issues you might have.
A beast when it comes to organizing your online business and keeping all of your notes in one safe place. There is not much for me to say about Evernote other than go check it out and start using it now!
My favorite to-do tool. There are many on the market but I love the simple layout of Wunderlist. Add to-dos on the fly than expand on your notes within Evernote later that day. A must have in my opinion.
Fast, simple & beautiful that's what Thrive Themes says to me. Thrive is a company I can't recommend highly enough and their themes are no different. [this site is running on the Rise thrive theme]
You know how I feel about Thrive by now and the Thrive Content Builder is no different. Pimp your WordPress site like never before and do it all with no coding experience whatsoever. Drag and drop your way to a beautiful and fully optimized website.
This is the best list building plugin on the market today. There is more expensive monthly options out there that do not have half the features that Thrive Leads has. Honestly get this plugin from day one and start building your email lists now.
When it comes to finding what's working online right NOW Swipevault has you covered. Swipe what's working now from the top online marketers out there and implement it in your business for rapid growth. There is also a Private mastermind group inside which is brilliant.
This is an RSS reader on steroids. Follow all of your favorite sites and get their content directly into the feeds you set up. I use the Feedly app way more then the site and integrated with Buffer I stockpile content for my social accounts and post at the specific times I have set.
YouTube Live videos rank faster & higher then both Hangouts & standard uploads straight out of the box. Give yourself an edge and start using Tube Live Commando to claim top spot rankings faster than your competitors.
For most of my video creation needs I use Camtasia. Learning to edit your videos will be both fun and a pain in the ass but for anybody who wants to get into video, this software is excellent.
Building an email list is essential and Mailchimp has you covered when it comes to this. It is also free for up to 2000 emails sent per month so having this as your email client makes complete sense especially if you are just starting out.
Finding and storing your keywords is something Long Tail Pro does extremely well. It uses the Keyword Planner as it's source for keywords but it does make searching and discovering those money keywords so much easier.
