I'm using WordPress as my website platform. What I'd like to do is build a following on a blog, create and sell digital products, affiliate marketing, and to offer some coaching services.
What exactly do I need and which are the most essential?
I was using AWeber and recently cancelled it because I didn't have many people on my list, and found it to be a waste of money.
Some of the thing's I have seen are:
- WordPress platforms such as Thrive Themes, OptimizePress, Elegant Themes
- email marketing - AWeber, Mail Chimp etc..
- Landing page software such as LeadPages, InstaPage
- Other website optimisation - SumoMe, OptinMonster
- Payment systems, including affiliate options - Infusionsoft
- Webinar hosting services - GoToMeeting
- Website membership site for products - OptimizePress
Do I even need most of that? Or could I just use a free autoresponder, a WordPress payment plugin, and my current OptimizePress membership to create landing pages and downloadable items?
There seems to be so many options and its hard to know what is required.
