I’ve gathered these tools to help you streamline your business. Find out more….
Continuing on the easy-to-use theme, this is by far my favorite tool for easily creating high-quality landing pages and squeeze pages. LeadPages will help you convert viewers into subscribers or buyers. Best of all, it works both with WordPress and non-WordPress sites alike.
An autoresponder allows you to communicate with your list via email. When somebody opts-in to your capture pages, they will be stored in your email autoresponder. Using your autoresponder, you can build relationships with your leads and monetize your list by periodically sending emails with valuable information. I highly prefer AWeber over other autoresponders. It is very easy to use and allows you to create opt-in forms that you can use to build a list from your blog or website.
I use HostGator for both my hosting and my website domains (to keep things consistent).
The customer service from HostGator is excellent. They were so helpful when I was setting up my websites. Two things that I really like about HostGator are:
- The “cpanel” which is a central control panel from which you can configure all your domains and analyze website stats very easily.
- Automatic WordPress (content management system) installation so you can start creating content right away.
They have three packages available – the baby, hatchling, and business plan – allowing you to pick an affordable plan that meets your specific needs. If you have multiple websites, make sure you grab either the hatchling or business plan that is offered by HostGator.
Outsourcing means just paying somebody else to do something you don’t want to do. If you don’t want to do something – such as building links, writing new content, or creating a new banner for your website – go to Fiverr.com to find someone that will get it done. You can get lots of cool stuff done-for-you for usually only $5! Fiverr.com is my go-to outsourcing spot – I use it for a variety of marketing tasks such as link-building and re-purposing existing content.
