Top 10 Online Marketing Tools for Your Business
This is my list of the top 10 online marketing tools for an online business that I use every single day. There's not much else that I need. You've probably heard the saying, "too many cooks spoil the broth"? Well in this case it's, "too many tools cause a lot of unnecessary stress." If someone asked me to choose just 10 essential tools, I'd choose to go with these ones...
1. Wealthy Affiliate
Wealthy Affiliate is an online training program for aspiring entrepreneurs, bloggers, internet marketers and home business owners. This is the place I learned to earn my first ever dollar online. The best thing here is you start on a free trial.
Included is a simple to use Website builder, Keyword Research Tool, Web Hosting, Live Weekly Webclasses, 24/7 Live Chat and a thriving community of like-minded people.
2. Jaaxy Keyword Research Tool
Jaaxy is my second choice in this top 10 tools roundup. If you're a blogger, you need to do keyword research. Jaaxy makes your keyword research so much simpler than any other tool I've found out there. I wouldn't be without Jaaxy and it's helped me to rank on the first page of Google time and time again.
If you're just blogging randomly without doing your keyword research first, it's like playing a guessing game.
It's way better to know what people are searching for online.
3. Thrive Themes Membership
Thrive Themes Membership includes access to 10 different themes and 10 different WordPress plugins which all help you make a gorgeous website. I started using Thrive in early 2017 after trying out hundreds of free Wordpress themes and not getting the results I wanted to achieve.
So I went all in with Thrive's Membership and my websites were suddenly just how I like them, they started looking a lot nicer and I was making more money as a result.
4. WPX Web Hosting
WPX Web Hosting was a game-changer for me when I first discovered them in late 2016. I'd tried a good few different hosting companies such as the better known ones we've all heard about.
However, shared hosting has many limitations. You don't know how many websites are stored on the same servers that yours are. Shared hosting can be detrimental to your website speed, and you can also suffer a lot of down time as a result.
Additionally, with shared hosting sites, and so many websites crammed on to one shared server, you won't get that VIP treatment that you get when you get higher grade hosting. How important to you is it for your website to be online 24/7?
5. Convertkit Email Autoresponder
Convertkit is my preference over Aweber which I also use from time to time. It's an Email Autoresponder that's much easier to use and nicer to work with than any other autoresponders I've tried over the last 4 years.
It's very visually based and makes life simpler when putting together your autoresponder sequencers. You'll benefit from Convertkit's email marketing solutions. If you're not building an email list for your online business, you'll struggle to grow.
6. Clickfunnels Sales Funnel Builder
If you're not using sales funnels in your business, you're doing it wrong! You're leaving money on the table, so to speak. Every successful business you can think of, online and offline, are using sales funnels even if you don't realize it.
Have you ever been into McDonald's and asked for a cheeseburger? Did they try to upsell you on a fries and a coke? That's a sales funnel. You'll find there are sales funnels all about you when you start looking for them.
7. DotCom Secrets Book
The DotCom Secrets Book by Russell Brunson is "The Underground Playbook For Growing Your Company Online..."
A simple process that ANY company can use to geometrically improve their traffic, conversion and sales online." ~ Tony Robbins
8. Expert Secrets Book
The Expert secrets book is another amazing book by Russell Brunson. Click on the "VIEW VIDEOS" dropdown below to see video testimonials about how this book has changed the game for many super affiliates.
9. Provely for Social Proof
Take a look at the image to your right and you'll see that in the bottom left corner there is a little rectangular box. In that box it says "someone from Miami, Florida Claimed the Free Training".
This is known as social proof and can help you when it comes to converting visitors into subscribers and customers for your online business.
This method of displaying recent activities on your site acts like testimonials do. They help you convert more visitors into subscribers and customers.
10. ConversioBot Automated Live Chat
ConverioBot is an automated live chat bot that sits in the bottom right part of your screen. When clicked on by your visitors an automated conversation begins taking place between the visitor and the bot.
You can program the bot to have a conversation about anything, such as "hi, how can I help you today?" The visitor is then given options to click on before the conversation continues.
You can use this to convert more of your site visitors into customers by sending them specific freebies or offers at the end of the conversation. It's easy to set up and you can program it to say what you want it to say and lead people to where you want them to go.
