On this page you will find some very important resources that all serious internet marketers need to build highly profitable businesses. I personally use everything listed below and feel confident recommended these tools and services to my subscribers as they have helped me immensely.
Every online marketer needs a hosting account, and the good news is that they are not expensive. The best service I have come across is Hostgator. They have incredible 24/7 support and their prices are very reasonable. You can get started for as little as $6.95 a month.
Tutorials on how to set up your account and use it are all included in my free coaching video course, which again you can sign up for on this blog.
The first thing you need to do when marketing online is buy a domain name, I buy nearly all of my domains from NameCheap, as they have great prices and good customer service too.
Without a doubt email is still one of the best ways to reach people when marketing online. Therefore it pays to build a database of subscribers that you can build a relationship with and promote offers to. The best service for doing this is Aweber.
Keyword research is the most important thing to get right when it comes to marketing online. Thankfully there is a huge amount of data we can call on to help us work out exactly what people are typing into Google every month.
The Google keyword tool is a free online service provided by Google to help guide webmasters decisions on what keywords to target. There are many keywords tools on the market that you can pay for, however to be totally honest you don’t need them, as they all get their data from Google anyway.
However although the free tool from Google will help you find keywords, it doesn’t help you work out how competitive they are. This is why I use SE Cockpit as my choice of keyword tool. SE Cockpit takes all the hard work out of finding and analyzing keywords. Once again I’ve negotiated a discount for my subscribers where you get a 30% discount off the cost, link below. I also recorded a webinar with the owners of SE Cockpit and have placed the replay link below to this for you also:
Having a presence in the social networks like Facebook and Twitter etc…is becoming more and more important these days. Google looks at sites to see if anyone is recommending and ‘liking’ sites on the social networks, and give them an SEO boost if they are. Not only that but the social networks are another great source of traffic. Finally if your website has lots of social voting going on it helps your conversions as people trust a site where others have recommended it.
In order to help my sites get a massive social reach I use a tool called SYNND. I have organized a special discount link for all my subscribers which I negotiated with the owners of SYNDD, the link is below, I also recorded a webinar with the owners of SYNND and have provided the replay link below for this also:
The key to greatly increasing your profits online is reinvesting your profits into Outsourcing. Outsourcing is where you hire workers, I choose the Philippines, to help do some of the tasks required to run and grow your business. This can be things such as link building for SEO, or writing articles, or even administration. One of the keys to success online is NOT to try and do everything yourself, but rather to delegate. In order to find great worker I use Odesk.

Eric Lancheres’ “Panda Break Through”
Once of the best SEO courses I have ever used is without a doubt Eric’s “Panda Break Through”. Eric goes into detail in the course into how to build sites that Google likes so you can avoid getting a slap from Google Panda or Penguin, two of the biggest algorithm changes that Google has recently brought out.
Until you are making regular money online it’s important to keep cost low, and one way to do this is by learning some basic graphic skill, and using a free tool called Paint.net.
Paint is not hard to use and there are plenty of tutorials on Youtube. You don’t need to be an expert, I most certainly am not, however knowing how to crop images and do simple things like this can make a world of difference!
