The “A #1” must have tool in your online world should be an email marketing and marketing automation suite. I have tried them all including Infusionsoft, HubSpot, Drip, Mailchimp, Aweber, you name it. The best email marketing and automation software I’ve found is ActiveCampaign, hands down. I’ve left it several times and I keep coming back.
Anything on this list I use personally and recommend.
- I’m using WebinarJam and EverWebinar for my webinars and it is by far the best solution I’ve found. You’ll find these guys are way over on the side of “internetmaketerish” but don’t let that put you off. I’ve tried a slew of other options and this one is kicking ass. I highly recommend it. Check this out here. The next one I’m checking out is Demio.
- Bench does all my bookkeeping. Don’t do it yourself unless you love it. I hate bookkeeping, I love Bench. Since I hated bookkeeping I was bad at it. I just didn’t do it in time. I’d save it for last minute when filing taxes, it was a disaster – and very stressful. With Bench I can see exactly where I’m at every month. I’ve got a dedicated contact, its great. I’ll never do my own books again. They charge based on your expense volume.
- Finally get an ROI on your social posting with Snip.ly. I used to share things all the time and had no idea why I even bothered because absolutely nothing happened. Waste. Of. Time. Now i use a Snip.ly + Buffer strategy and I’m clocking 5% webinar registrations – meaning that 5% of the people who click on a post of mine are registering for my webinar – which is awesome because I close almost 9% of webinar attendees.
- Fast Hosting Excellent Service from SiteGround. I used WP Engine for a long time but man are they getting expensive. SiteGround offers the same and faster speeds at a fraction of the price and this site as well as others I have are hosted on it.
Some or all of these are affiliate links which means that I get a referral fee if you buy though my link. I won’t put anything here that I don’t recommend.
