A full list of everything I’m using to run my online business. From the best productivity tools, marketing tools, content creation stuff, and more, here are my must-haves!
Building my websites.
(without any coding knowledge)
This is a popular sales page builder that you’ll either love or hate. I personally & currently use this for ALL my online pages and assets. This includes building all pages for your site… including funnels, forms, blog & memberships.
I don’t think this one needs any introduction because WordPress powers like 20% of all websites on the internet. I use WordPress as a base for all my websites, and with the right themes & plugins, you can create almost anything.
It’s what powering this site you’re on! Site speed is a factor for Google, so you’re be all set. If you’re ready to step up to better hosting that has fair pricing to keep all your sites on separate cpanels, make your hub with NameHero.
I have all my domain names hosted here. I found this to more cost effective than any other service, easier to use and less headaches. They also offer free whoisguard for life. They also provide additional services including web hosting, email hosting, security and cloud-based services.
Your theme is the most important decision you’ll make for your WordPress site. Your design is responsible for a heck of a lot more than simply looking good. A proper design system ensures your customizations are easy to make & manage over time plus maintains flexibility.
This is a backup service for your Wordpress blog. I use this religiously and have this as a staple when ever I start a new site or an existing site. Hacking, server crashes, dodgy updates or simple user error can ruin your WordPress site. They also have the capability to migrate and clone sites. Don’t skip this!
Automate & build my funnels.
(these are my go-to tools I love)
I’ve been with ActiveCampaign awhile! They’ve come a long way. You have the ability to setup your campaigns to align perfectly with specific actions/interests your subscribers have. Very powerful.
This conversational & friendly platform builds bots that work for you all day delivering qualified leads and speeding up client resolutions. You can design a bot in minutes so it can start acquiring leads for you and automate next steps.
Once you get a hang of it, it’s way more intuitive than the other automating apps and cheaper too. It integrates with hundreds of apps and you can create pretty insane marketing automation experiences.
Virtual digital marketing helpers.
(tools that help streamline your productivity)
Your best friend on the road to YouTube success. If you’ve not already added video and YouTube marketing to your advertising arsenal, then it’s high time you changed that. TubeBuddy is a browser extension (aka browser plugin) that adds a layer of tools directly on top of YouTube’s website.
In a nutshell, it’s a click tracking platform that allows you to track all sort of link clicks (paid/organic and optimize all of your marketing efforts). If you are new to online marketing, it’s smart to track anything you are promoting. That way you know which of your marketing efforts worked or didn’t. Get an edge and stay ahead.
This uncovers who your website visitors are, what they do, and what they want – enabling you to deliver fully personal experiences across every page. The holy grail of reaching the right person with the right message at the right time.
