    Hello Pushkar,

    For Landing Pages I have used Unbounced and Instapage. But Unbounce is better in my opinion, but you can check both out of course.

    For Lead Management, I use ZoHo CRM. It's very cheap, and integrates with lots of other services.

    Email Marketing: Aweber all the way :-)

    Social Media Management: I use Hoot-suite. They have a free trial, and it's very good at managing your twitter and Facebook accounts. LinkedIn too!

    If you need any help let me know :-)

        Yes, I hear buzzbundle could be good, but a little buggy. Do you currently use it? Any suggestions if it's worth trying? Thanks advance!

          BuzzBundle is definitely a powerful tool if used properly. Follow this tutorial, this will teach you how to generate traffic and build relationships with your target audience.
          Like every software from SEO powersuite, bugs occur sometimes, but the support is good and updates happen very frequently.

            Hey Max, thanks, I checked out the link.... looks like great detailed info on Buzz-bundle. I will definitely check it out later today. Thanks a lot! As for bugs, i agree, what software doesn't have them from time to time. I remember, reading somewhere that buzz-bundle was buggy and not worth it, so I guess that had discouraged me from trying it. But, with a detailed tutorial like you gave, I'll definitely give it a shot this time.

        Hello Pushkar,

        For finding leads, I use the following software:

        1. FB Lead Chef: This software is used for facebook marketing. It helps find targeted leads based on keywords. So if you are looking for leads in the weight loss niche, you type in weight loss in the software, and choose if you want to search in groups, events, or pages. Then it does its magic. I usually choose groups, because it will show how many members in the group and other great useful information such as who are the most active members in the group, so you can analyze them and see what you can do to become an active member in that group like them.

        2. Hot Prospector Lead Finder: This tool helps you find leads in yellow pages, and Facebook too. It also searches Manta to get a list of leads by name, address, phone number, ect. Great tool to find local clients if you do SEO, web design, etc.

        3. For Social Media Reporting and Monitoring, another software I've used was Social Report. It's great, kinda similar to hoot-suite, but not exactly the same. But it does track, social conversations on a lot of social networks, helps you manage your social media profiles too. Worth checking out, usually has a free trial.

            Hello Devilfish,

            I use it on Windows 7. I tried to look online to see if it would work for mac, but couldn't find any information on it. So I'm assuming it will only work for Windows. If you have mac, perhaps you can use a software to install Windows on your Mac such as Parallels Desktop or Boot-camp? Sorry I couldn't get you the answer you needed, let me know if you need any help or info on FB lead chef.

              yea I know is hard to find mac version...

              web base one..it seem there is hardly any one time payment...most of them are monthly subscription to use it ...

              because my mac don't have much diskspace and ram thus parallel install is not advisable...

                  gee bro , I happen to buy the program..is not "auto poster"

                  I noticed...

                  is like you can save trouble one shot add many groups and manual post ..just once..and all the groups will see your message...

                  unlike auto post ...???

    I like using Marketing Automation & Email Marketing Software | Silverpop. Haven't had any problems with them so far. I've given also Software: Business & Nonprofit | Reviews and Top Software at Capterra a go. But I'd go with Silverpop more if asked.

    For me, I've used Hubspot several times before. Their customer support is really good and they have a free trial so that's really cool if you're still finding things out.

    Marketo is really good too. Their pricing is reasonable and also their customer support is good.

    Its important to have good customer support specially if you're just starting or something.

    Also, you should try out free trials from different sources. I've done that before to find what would be suitable for my needs. Good luck!

      Hi! I suggest you try Infusionsoft for marketing automation. Of all software I tried, this is the best I ever had. I tried Eloqua before but it didn't really match my requirements. Then I started paying for Infusionsoft Essentials worth $199. Now I'm happy enjoying their complete service at a very reasonable price of $379! Take a look at their site: Infusionsoft | Features Overview - Automated Marketing.

      This is just a suggestion but I strongly recommend this to you. Hope this helps you, JDLancaster!

        Maybe you're wrong in changing your MAS because I use Eloqua for routing leads to CRM, automated account notification emails, newsletter and promotional email sends. It's an excellent tool for marketing automation; also giving us the ability to quickly segment our contact database allowing us to market to the correct contacts. We're using it for a very long time and it just keep on impressing us.

          Probably. I believe every marketer has different requirements and needs and so far, Infusionsoft has been very consistent in providing for my company... Glad you're satisfied with Eloqua

            I use GetResponse and it's really good specially because they have several different packages to cater to different volumes of subscribers. I first tried the $25/month subscription (Which happens to be their most popular). They also have a 30-day free trial so you can see if it fits your needs.

            But to add, I also use Endlessrise they provide marketing content I could use to boost my branding and to attract more clients. They also have a lead generation tool, and they are also an outsource provider. By far, this is the greatest one-stop shop I know when it comes to providing services for digital marketers.

            I also use Infusionsoft for my email blasts. This is a really awesome tool as it ties in CRM functions with your outbound email campaigns. I've never seen a complete solution like Infusionsoft.

            Yes, because I use these 3 simultaneously.

    ScrapeBox has my vote. Single price, no ongoing costs and does pretty much everything you need. Can be used for whitehat, greyhat or blackhat. As for building a list, GetResponse are the guys I've used in the past.

    Hi Pushkar,

    Glad to see you are here and more active. Right now I am very concerned with providing excellent and the highest quality content to my market. So my entire marketing strategy is based on automatically publishing lots of video content after doing Authority Keyword Research.

    I then use WordPress plug ins to Auto Schedule my posts / content. Also, Facebook allows you to schedule and auto-post your content. Now the secret is to next have a Call to Action link which leads to more related content as well as an offer, or however you decide to build your sales funnel.

    Automating content publishing saves me so much time so that I can focus on contacting my clients directly.

      If you are using wordpress for blogging you can use a plugin called Jetpack. Jetpack will publicize your Site's Posts Automatically on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Tumblr, Path & Google+ . It will automatically take the published content from your website and share it instantly with third party services like search engines which increases your traffic and reach.
