To have a successful online business, you must use premium tools. If you ask any successful marketer, you might be surprised how many tools they are using to generate their income online!
The internet provides us with such vast opportunities to make money.
If you want to experience financial freedom constantly, you need to have at least 7 streams of income because if you rely on only one source, if anything happens, then you will be broke overnight!
Internet marketing is one of my sources of income. I used different software and platforms to generate that income.
That being said, the following lists are some of my tools in online marketing.
I will categorize them according to their main functions so that it will help you understand more. And the list will grow as I continue to scale and expand my business. So if you want to stay updated, subscribe so you won’t miss anything!
1. Domain And Web Hosting
2. Email Marketing
GetResponse as I find it more and cheaper in comparison to the others. And for the obvious reason of the ease in using it not only for email marketing but building sales funnels, webinars, etc. I could say, it’s definitely one of the best out there in the market!
3. For Blog Content
Grammarly – To check for any writing mistake. It makes writing much much easier!
4. Keyword Research Tool
I use Keywords Everywhere but now it’s a paid service. I also use Jaaxy as I find it very useful in keyword research. It’s not the best though. But comparing with SEMrush or Ahrefs, it’s much more affordable and works effectively for a smaller to medium business.
If you are having a big business with greater competition in the market, I would recommend you to use SEMrush (BeRush) as the accuracy given by Semrush is amazing. ( I used the trial version and was surprised by the results I have seen but decided on the former ones ultimately as I see no reason in spending extra bucks when you can go for the much cheaper version which provides more than you would need anyways).
5. Link Cloaking
For example: With Pretty Links, your link will look like this –https://yourwebsite.com/Grammarly (the name of the product you promote) and it looks pretty cool too, right?
6. Link Shortener
Bitly and Tiny URL- I used Google URL Shortener before but it is not available now.
Bitly kind of looks so saturated with each link starting with ‘bitly’ but then I still find it very easy to use with stats on your clicked links updated. You can track where your links are clicked. You can customize your links with bitly too.
I also tried other link shortener but prefer bitly over them!
7. Traffic Generation
My traffic generation software is My Lead Generation Secret.
I also use Udimi for solo ads apart from social media like Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn.
To jump-start your online business, somehow you need buyer intent traffic and you can get that only from paid solos. But be careful from whom you buy the list.
8. Paid Programs and Training
Evergreen Wealth Formula 2.0 – This program teaches you from scratch how to start your online business. One of my most effective training program. It’s a one-time payment of $197 with a lifetime update. The pieces of training you get are priceless. Really!
Wealthy Affiliates – Very basic and easy to understand. In fact, I started my online marketing with WA. The downside is, it has a recurrent monthly fee which I don’t appreciate much.
However, you can try it out for free and also get a massive discount for the first month.
My DFY Softwares
I purchased much more software, but find them not that effective as the ones listed above.
Honestly, I didn’t make much from them either … but it’s like ‘Something is better than nothing’. You can try them out yourself.
However, I would highly recommend that you enroll yourself in courses that taught you how to start from scratch and scale rather than spending your money on DIY software or tools!
9. Affiliate Marketplace
It would be a long list. Moreover, some of them are not that worth it. The list of which works best for me as listed in Best Affiliate Partners To Join In 2020 … Have a look at it!
