This are the tools and services, I actually use on a daily basis.
I personally use NameCheap.com, and each purchase comes
with a whois protection And the domains are some the the cheapest around.
Godaddy.com is another domain register that I use. (lots of coupons on the net)
I use Surpass Hosting for my Dedicated server,
and Godaddy for $1 wp hosting,
Aweber 99% delivery rate, and protects you site and
server from being label a spam site.
ActiveCampaign.com – Currently testing.
Keyword Ultra (not open to the public, yet!)
THE BEST keyword research out there, Create keyword list up into the MILLIONS! check domain availability, search trends, SEO stats, competition check, etc,

This software saves alot of time . Using it’s filters, you can easily drill down to keywords that are easy to rank for and get you tons and tons of free traffic.

I bounce theme to theme all the time. For me it’s hard to settle just on one style. Currenty This is the one I am using at the moment.
Themeforest.com – specialty themes.
- Fixed Widget
W3 Cache – Caching Plugin – Advanced users. I’ve used this for years,
and never got it to the point where I was happy, even with their paid support..
- WP Rocket – Caching Plugin – Paid, but very easy to setup.
- MaxCND – Only recommend if you have a high-traffic website.
- WordFence ( WP – anti-virus/firewall) I’ve been hacked serveral times.
It’s always a huge hassle to fix.
- Popup Domination
creates a lead capture/squeeze page on any page of your site.
It creates a very pretty, lightbox popup over your screen so
people have to fill out the box or hit the ‘x’ to see what’s on your page.
So There you have it…. You really don’t need many tools when you get started just a website and paypal. No need to over think it. Once you get started and have money coming in then you can start adding the tools to help you out. It’s not necessary.
ClickFunnels <- This is very interesting, as it lead-pages, shopping cart software, the main reason I’d rather have this service than manage a bunch of small blogs. Maintenance on many tiny blog is killing me ** currently testing** And this tool is really all you need to get started. It’s great for people just getting started. Basically they connect to a free mailing service and stripe (credit-card processor) so you are up and running in no time, just put up your offer and send traffic and business is running!
