Tools I Use to Power My Blog 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.
This website is currently hosted with Bluehost and I could not be happier. I have many websites that utilize a number of different hosting companies and Bluehost is my favorite! Check them out here! You can host unlimited websites under one low priced account that includes all of the features that you will need!
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!
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. I'm sure that you have heard the phrase "The money is in the list". GetResponse makes it very easy to integrate with your landing pages and it is free to get started! Check out 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.
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.
I created the book cover on the left 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!
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.
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!
