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.
Business Building Platforms and Training
Wealthy Affiliate is my top recommendation for building a real, sustainable online business. You can check out my full Wealthy Affiliate Review here. I believe that this is where you have the best chance of succeeding with the tool and training provided. You can join for Free by clicking here.
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.
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!
Email Marketing Solutions
GetResponse for Emails
One of the best things that you can do for your online business is to begin building your email list as soon as possible. GetResponse makes it very easy to integrate with your landing pages and it is free to get started !Check out my GetResponse Review here or just visit the GetResponse website by clicking here!
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
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 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.
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!
