Please note: Some of these resources are provided at no charge. Some are paid. I’m an affiliate for a few of these paid resources. This means, if you buy through my link, I will receive a small commission at no charge to you.
I have used each of these recommended resources myself. That’s why I can recommend them. I don’t recommend what I don’t use.
Website hosting and tools
SiteGround: This is my go-to web host. With great tools and fantastic support at an affordable price, SiteGround is hard to beat.
WordPress: I have a love / hate relationship with WordPress. On one hand, I don’t love some of their recent design changes. Gutenberg anyone? On the other, WordPress is one of the most extensible and most widely supported content management systems available today. Plus it’s free. You can’t beat that.
Elementor: Don’t limit yourself to what your WordPress theme can churn out. Elementor lets WordPress users change, override, add to, and build upon the solid foundation WordPress provides. Add widgets, animations, popups, and more. Free and paid versions are available.
Builderall: Builderall is one of the most comprehensive, fully featured marketing tools I have ever seen. Ever. Plus, with a freaking amazing affiliate program, you can make some serious money referring others.
My Free Courses
These courses are designed to help you start and grow your online marketing efforts. They are provided at no charge. There’s nothing to buy. I just hope they are helpful to you.
Info Product Tutorial: In this course, I teach the basics of creating an info product. Give it away as a lead magnet or sell it. The possibilities are endless.
ListBootcamp: There’s a famous saying: “The money’s in the list.” It’s true! This video-based course will teach you how to build your email list from the ground up.
Ads are a part of life for the online marketer. What kind of ads you buy and where will make a huge difference for you in the long run. These are resources I have used and recommend.
Udimi: Solo ads are great – if you buy from reputable sellers. This is where Udimi shines. Search through their database of solo ad sellers and buy through the secure payment system. If a solo ad seller fails to deliver what was purchased, you can get your money back. Every seller is held to strict quality standards, and users just like us can leave real, honest reviews so others know what they’re getting into.
Bing Ads: As a competitor to Google, Bing naturally has its own pay-per-click advertising network. For some keywords, I have found Bing to cost less and get better results than Google. Your mileage may vary, of course. But I recommend them.
Pinterest Ads: Like any good social network, Pinterest has its own ad platform. Advertisers can create a “pin” and promote it to users searching for given keywords or keyword phrases. I have used Pinterest to promote my offers and have seen decent results.
GetResponse: This is currently my email service provider of choice. It’s one of the older and perhaps less modern offerings, but it does its job for a decent price. If you ever have a problem, support is just seconds away with their live chat.
Aweber: Like GetResponse, Aweber is one of the older email service providers on the web, but what it does, it does very well. It provides a solid, easy to use platform that both newbies and experienced marketers will appreciate.
ConvertKit: ConvertKit is a newer kid on the block. Designed mostly for bloggers and Internet marketers, it offers a nice balance of flexibility and that shiny new car smell.
