What are your "must have" products and services for internet marketing

34 replies
I'm just wondering what everyone uses as their "can't live without" products and services to help their online business...

For example a few things I use frequently that were the best purchases I've ever made are:

- Lifetime membership at CBengine
- Interspire Email Marketer with SMTP account
- Dedicated Server with Plesk
- Camtasia Studio
- VBulletin
- 2CO account
- War Room Membership


What products/services do you consider to be a vital part of your online business? Perhaps a keyword spy tool or marketing software?

    - Market Samurai
    - SeoBook and Rank Checker for firefox

    -Dragon Naturally Speaking for writing articles(or any writing really)
    -SpyFu
    -Keyword Eye
    -Google keyword tool, trends, zeitgeist, insights
    -SplitTester

    they are the main products I use everyday just off the top of my head


    Best of luck,
    Justin

      Come on... no one else wants to share? Everyones in the "TAKING" spirit this holiday season? "Giving more" wasn't one of your resolutions?

      Or are you just so James Bond that if you reveal any of this kinda info you'll have to kill me?
      Just seen your thread and amused by the above. I'm intrigued as to why you want to know because you seem to be happy with your list but if you're looking for additional tools, sources and resources, etc, then here are are few that I wouldn't be without:

      - Membership of WF, especially the War Room
      - XSitePro - for building squeeze pages and any type of non-WP sites- very user-friendly
      - AWeber Autoresponder - might be pricey with larger lists but so reliable
      - MemberGate - all-bells and whistles- in-one membership site licence (monthly fee or my preferred option - purchase licence outright) - customer service surpasses expectation
      - CuteFTP for file upload
      - Traffic Travis and Mass Money Maker Software for targeted keyword research
      - Google Keyword Tools for keyword research
      - BlueHost and Hostgator hosting services
      - CPMage
      - PayPal
      - GoalEnforcer - Not unlike Mindjet but at a fraction of the cost for planning projects to keep me focused and on track
      - All the knowledge and expertise gained over the years from the likes of Jim Edwards, Jimmy D Brown, Jeff Walker, John Reese, Kim Roach, Chris Farrell, Neil Shearing, Michael Cheney, Matt Bacak, Armand Morin to name but a few.

      There now! All the above info and you get to hang on to your life, too!

        Thanks for your response!

        To answer your question though I think a more fitting question is who wouldn't want to know? Perhaps my description of what I was looking for wasn't clear enough... I mean it's one thing for people to say something like "I just went through this training product and it was great" but who really cares if it's not something that's acutely being using to make money?

        The idea of this thread was similar to the "best products of 2010" thread here:
        http://www.warriorforum.com/main-int...ts-2010-a.html

        except instead of just limiting it to 2010 we all share the really good products that have stood the test of time in our business. (Ideally the ones that we've had to lay down money for).

        I've got a collection of products that I've been using regularly that have really helped me make money in my online business. But I'm wondering what other people are using, perhaps we'll see some trends in what the most used products are that produce results. Or maybe we'll get an idea for a new product to try...

        And I'm talking about unique products too - not just haphazard responses like "MS windows", "Filezilla", "An Internet Connection"...etc.

          I see, Jambon. Since your post, I've seen one or two similar threads and thanks to other Warriors sharing their ideas, I, too, have added a number of useful tools to my list of "must have" in 2011.

          Thanks for starting the thread. Happy New Year to you all.

    It all depends what exactly your online business is all about, but I can definately suggest the following:

    Aweber for building a list.
    Market Samurai for keywords
    Kompozer for editing your websites
    Filezilla for uploading your files to your websites
    Photoshop for editing your graphics for your business
    Domain host of your preference.

    All the rest can be learned for free from subscribing to good lists and browsing great forums like Warrior Forum.

    Hi

    It caught my eye that you are using
    "Interspire Email Marketer with SMTP account"

    I am looking at and considering
    1. mailloop-7 $197
    2. interspire $495

    What would be a good Smtp account?

    Thanks
