Tools I Use to Power JVanderlaan.com and Run My Online Business

I have had a lot of requests to share all of the tools that I use to power my blog and successfully run my online business. Below you will find all of the tools I use.

Website Hosting

WPX Hosting

WPX Hosting

This website is currently hosted with WPX Hosting and I could not be happier. I have migrated a number of my websites to WPX and their FREE migration makes it so easy. Check them out here! It is more expensive to host your websites here, so I do not recommend WPX for beginners.

Best Hosting

BlueHost Hosting

I had websites hosted at Bluehost for years and I still use Bluehost for some of my new sites. It is the perfect place for beginners. Check them out here! You can host unlimited websites under one low priced account that includes all of the features that you will need!

Keyword Research

Long Tail Pro

Long Tail Pro Keyword Tool

The success of any online business lies squarely in your ability to do high quality keyword research. Long Tail Pro is the best solution that I have found for this task and it is very user friendly. They also offer a seven day trial for $1. Check out my review here or just visit the Long Tail Pro Website by clicking here.

jaaxy keyword tool

Jaaxy Keyword Tool

While I believe that Long Tail Pro is a superior keyword research tool, Jaaxy deserves mention here because I do use it and because it has a 100% free option for you to get started. My advice to you is to sign up for the free option and see what you think. You can check out my Jaaxy review here or just click here to visit the Jaaxy website.


WordPress Themes and Landing Pages

This website uses the FocusBlog theme from Thrive Themes. It is an amazingly fast, conversion focused theme that is perfect for an online business. They have many themes to choose from, but they are all focused on speed and conversions. Check out my review here or just visit their website!

thrive landing pages

Thrive Landing Pages make it super easy to create stunning pop ups and conversion focused subscription forms that will turbo boost your list building efforts! They integrate seamlessly with most autoresponders, including my favorite GetResponse. Check out my review here or just visit their website here.

Other Tools I use

Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect has changed the way I build webpages. It is now easy to build beautiful, engaging content and landing pages. Check out my Thrive Architect Review here or just head over to Thrive Themes and pick it up for yourself. It is relatively inexpensive and will add real value to your website.

Ecover Authority

I created the book cover you see in just minutes with a couple of clicks using Ecover Authority. This product eliminates the need for photoshop and will have you creating all kinds of awesome covers and graphics! It is a huge timesaver and very inexpensive! Check it out here!


These are some of the most important tools that I use to power this website and many others. I have compiled these tools over the last ten years in my online business.

I have used other tools over the years, but these are the ones that have stood the test of time!​

Hello,

A few years ago I joined ‘Site Build It’ in hopes of creating a profitable website. Unfortunately my day job has restricted me in pursuing this they way I would have liked to. I am now getting back into creating my website but at the present time only have my domain name organicfoodpro.com. The more I read about SBI the less enthused I become and was thinking about leaving for a more up to date service to help me since I am a beginner. My problem is my domain name, which I really like, is registered through SBI. My fee for another year is coming up in a couple months and I was wondering if anyone could tell me how I can get my domain name moved to somewhere else. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

Eric

    Hey Eric,

    Thanks for stopping by!

    First off, great domain name!

    I would suggest that you move to Wealthy Affiliate. I moved there from Site Build It and could not be happier.

    Moving your domain name is very easy once you join WA.

    Once you are a member at WA, you contact SBI support and let them know that you want to transfer your domain. They will give you an authorization code to enter at WA and the process will begin. If I remember correctly, it takes a few days for the transfer to complete.

    Hope this helps!

    JV
