My ALL TIME favorite tools & resources for Internet Marketing

35 replies
Hey guys, the purpose of this post is to provide a list for the best internet marketing resources and tools.

There are so many products and software tools out there and you may be on a number of different Internet Marketer's lists, and be distracted and misled by all the shiny objects that you get pitched every single day.

So my goal is to help you cut through the hype and clear the clutter. And I hope you use it and find it to be a valuable resource. Enjoy


The Essentials


LaunchRebates.com - The premier Cash-Back platform to discover premium Internet Marketing products and earn money back with every purchase!

Namecheap - My favorite domain registration website with cheap prices an excellent control panel for managing all of your domains. It's been around since 2001 and I've been using it without any issues for years.

JVZooHost - One of the best hosting services I've ever come across. By investing in the most powerful and reliable hardware available, JVZooHost can provide speed and uptime that is unmatched in the hosting industry.

FileZilla - A free FTP client software. You need this to connect to your hosting server and access your website files.

Getresponse - This is an email marketing platform & autoresponder. You will need it to capture email addresses and also to communicate with the list that you build. It's a monthly fee. Stop being cheap and get over it (they actually have a FREE 30-day trial).

Aweber - The other email marketing platform that is popular among marketers. I'm not going to say which one is better because both Aweber and Getresponse rank at the top. Each of them will provide you with everything you need to build & manage an email list and connect with your readers. It's just a matter of personal preference.

iGloo App - My new favorite page builder. Extremely flexible, easy to use and has all the features you could ever want to build any type of marketing page.

Click Funnels - This is a page builder. You will need this to create high converting pages to capture as many leads as possible so you can build your list fast. I love Clickfunnels because its super easy to use, has a drag and drop interface and has amazing support. You can use it to build anything from simple squeeze pages to complete sales funnels and membership sites.

OptimizePress - OptimizePress was the first page builder that really changed the game in the internet marketing world. It also comes with a very easy-to-use drag & drop interface and great customer support. Each of the two will work just as good. Again, its just a matter of personal preference.

InstaBuilder - Yet another page builder. Well, this may not be as powerful and feature-rich as CF and OP, but it does the job well when it comes to building squeeze pages, sales pages, landing pages and even complete sales funnels. Also, unlike the others I mentioned above, this is actually a WordPress plugin. That means it will work for you no matter what theme you have installed on your site.

ScriptDoll - In short, ScriptDoll takes the hard work out of writing persuasive sales copy An essential tool which can assist you to create sales letter, video scripts, autoresponder emails and more. You are able to build all of that by filling in a few fields and having ScriptDoll write them for you using ultra powerful templates written by world class copywriters.

Google Analytics - GA is the baseline of all Internet data analysis. If you're not tracking your visitors, then you're flying blind. If you want to build a massively successful business, then you need to continually improve your conversion rates. That means tracking your subject lines, open rates, squeeze pages, sales letters, calls to action, and everything in between.

SurveyMonkey - A great tool you can use to create custom surveys in minutes in order to get feedback from your subscribers.

BackupBuddy - Some people would say this is not an essential tool to use but trust me, when you lose your work for whatever reason, or your site gets hacked, you'll realize how important is to back up your files and data. Don't let that happen to you and always back up everything.


Marketplaces

JVZoo - This is perhaps the most talked-about affiliate and seller network among Internet marketers today. I have been using it for a very long time, and I never have faced any problem regarding services or any other thing.

WarriorPlus - This is also a great place for affiliate marketing and selling products. If you don't want to use JVZoo for any reason, W+ is definitely the best alternative for handling digital delivery of products and managing affiliates.

Clickbank - This is the largest affiliate-marketing network for digital products like eBooks, software and membership sites in different categories.

DealGuardian - This platform was established by Mike Filsaime. It is a network that focuses on B2B products and the marketplace that they have is not based on the sales of affiliates that promotes the products (as with others like JVZoo and CB), but the rating is determined by reviews that the clients make of the products.


PLR/MRR Sites

Resell Rights Weekly - Finding quality ready to sell products can be daunting. RRW may be your answer.

Master Resell Rights - MRR is a membership website that gives members access to a wide variety of products with resale rights. These products can be sold with the member keeping 100% of all the profits generated (and the price point can also be determined by the member). In addition, members can use these products to build their own mailing lists by giving them away or using them as incentives.

PLR Assassin - This is another private label rights membership club where you can join and start getting new PLR every month. The club includes a variety of different PLR such as eBooks, audios, video, software, graphics, and more.

IDplr - It is one of the best resources for internet entrepreneurs with more than 8000 PLR products.


Joint Venture Marketing

MunchEye - The most comprehensive I.M launch calendar used by over 5000 potential affiliates and JV partners, who are actively looking to promote offers.

JVNotifyPro - This is the brain child and flagship site of well know JV Broker Mike Merz. It is comprised of a multi-category JV forum, social media network, training content, newsletter and more.

Launchsuite - This is an all-inclusive solution to handle the obstacles to launching a product. The thing I like most about this site is its great integration with JVZoo for product statistics.


Affiliate Marketing

ThistyAffiliates - A professional affiliate link management & link cloaking tool for affiliates.

Covert Commissions - This is a newly released affiliate marketing system by three well-known marketers: Soren Jordansen, John Merrick, and Cindy Battye, from IM Wealth Builders. In a nutshell, its a service for highly converting evergreen products. All you have to do is send people to a squeeze page giving away a free report to pre-sell the main offer. The rest of the optimized funnel is automatically done for you. Ideal for beginner affiliate marketers or for anyone who just want to get extra income without all the hard word of testing and tweaking their funnels.

Commission Gorilla - This is a complete Affiliate Promotion System (Saas) to help you get the most out of your promotions across any affiliate network or platform you may be using. The success of many of the top marketers is in part due to the amazing bonus pages they create when they promote products. And thats what this software platform does helps you create professionally-looking bonus pages along with cool graphics for your bonuses. It also comes with a vast database with ready-made bonuses you can use.


Testing & Tracking

Optimizely - This is an A/B split-testing software created for marketers and it's essential when selling or promoting anything online. Basically it allows you to track different versions of your pages and have the traffic sent equally to each version so you can find out which one converts better. An essential tool if you want to scale your business to the next level.

CrazyEgg - An online tool that allows you to track user behavior on your website. The goal of all testing is to understand user behavior, and Crazy Eggs software allows you to identify exactly what users are doing when they visit your website. You can create overlays and heat maps to identify where people are clicking on your website.


Outsourcing

ReplaceMyself - Learn everything there is to know about outsourcing to the Phillipines.

OnlineJobs.ph - The best place to find rockstar Filipino workers. The owners of the site have actually done the hard work of finding skilled people for all kinds of stuff. You just need to find out which one is best for you. You won't believe how cheap it is also.


Webinar Software

Webinar Fusion Pro - My favorite webinar software which is used by many of the top marketers to connect with their audiences.


Marketing

Facebook Ads - One of my favourite things about FB Ads is the freedom to experiment. With multiple ads per ad set I can see which ads are performing best and create more like those or kill off any ads that are underperforming.

Google Adwords - This is the largest online advertising service in the world and it will undoubtedly expand your target audience with a well-managed campaign.

BuySellAds - This is a marketplace where publishers sell ad inventory to advertisers. For purchasing ads on specific sites, BSA is the way to go.

TrafficVance - This network has been around since 2006, and has since established its position as a reliable pay-per-view (PPV) advertising platform.

LeadImpact - Lead impact is also a PPV advertisement network that is widely being used, specially for lead generations and affiliate marketing.


Site Monetization

AdSense - The Google ad network is one of the most used monetization strategies for website owners.

Chitika - One of my highest earners, a widget type ad that converts well on product related sites.

Connexity - Yet another great widget based ad network

Amazon Associates - Make money recommending products from the biggest online store.

AliExpress Portals - The hottest thing in the affiliate marketing arena at the moment. Amazon finally got a real competitor.

Just think about buttons, call-to-actions, guarantee boxes, post cards, headers, banners, memes, infographics, sales pages and more.

MoonPixlar - A marketing graphics app which comes with a drag & drop user friendly interface to make creating graphics quick and easy.

WordPress Plugins

Contact Form - 7 The most widely used form plugin for WordPress as its secure, easy to use and has advanced options.

Amazon S3 - In a nutshell S3 is an online storage facility. It is cheap (free for a limited time under AWSs free usage tier), fast and easy to setup. It used by many large companies including Netflix, Pintrest and is even where Dropbox stores its data. You can therefore rest assured that it is reliable and secure.

It converts your videos for you, uploads them to your account for you, makes sure they're compatible with all devices and browsers, secures them so people can't steal them, and gives you a simple embed code that you paste wherever you want your video to appear. Highly recommended!!!

Dropbox - A service that keeps your files safe, synced, and easy to share. Bring your photos, docs, and videos anywhere and never lose a file again.


Membership Software

ValueAddon - What can I say? Well, this platform makes it too easy to build a membership site. I highly recommend it to both newbies and experienced marketers.

S2Member Pro - s2 Member is a membership plugin for wordpress and a favourite of mine. I recommend it to more experienced marketers as it comes with a bit of learning curve. However, its highly flexible and reliable and a great solution for big membership sites.

Wishlist Member - Another great membership software. Its extremely easy to use, integrates with WordPress flawlessly, and offers great customer support.

OptimizeMember - This is a part of the OptimizePress suite of Plugins for WordPress. It is quite powerful and I have had limited issues overall. If youre using OptimizePress to power your website, then this is the membership solution for you.

    great list

    I'd just like to add:

    Tailwind - if you're doing any pinterest marketing then this is a must.. schedules your pins according to highest repin times for your niche.

    Thrive leads or sumome - both turn your website into a giant catcher's mitt for leads. Plus you can do A/B testing. Thrive leads is cheaper.

    have a great day,

          That wasn't my intention. As far as I know, all-in-one threads are located in a sub-section of the main IM discussion forum. My intention was to simply reply the posts that caught my attention. For the others I just hit "Thanks" instead.

      It's a great platform. So is ScriptEngage 2.0 and Exact Model which are similar. I guess I'll have to continue to update my list

        It seems ScriptDoll is $99/month after the 21 day free trial (yikes!). How good is ScriptEngage 2.0? It's only a 1 time payment I see, and if it's just as good, it makes sense for me to go with that one.
