This page will list the tools I use every day to make money online. There will be no particular order, and some will cost money (and all well worth the cost:) and some will be free (I just love free stuff!)
Lets start with your autoresponder. What is that you say? An autoresponder is a service that automates many of the tasks associated with getting your emails out to your list/s. You can have many lists (some marketers have hundreds!) I’m not going into much detail on setting up your account, ect here because Aweber does an outstanding job on their site. If you took a poll, you’d find most Internet Marketers use Aweber, as do I.
If you don’t have a list…you need one (or many) you really do. Even if you have many lists you still owe it to yourself to add one more. This list building system is simply a win/win. There is really no negatives…only positives. And it’s absolutely free. There is an upgrade…which I recommend. Check it out.
Ezines and newsletters are simply other people’s email lists. Many of these list owners are willing to let you advertise on their list for a price. These subscribers can be very targeted and responsive to your adverts. But the problem that arises is which of these lists are your best choice to advertise with, and how do you even find the lists to begin with.
The answer is The Directory Of Ezines. A membership site with lots of info on most of the ezines/newsletters out there that welcome advertising Charlie Page the owner of DOE a very successful Internet Marketer, and a genuinely a good guy. I’ve been a member of DOE for a couple of years, and I’ve always thought that was money that was well spent.
There is a onetime fee for a lifetime membership, if you want to advertise on ezines you owe it to yourself to check it out.
Sometimes you can get files (ebook, software, ect.) online that is in a zipped file. This is done to save space. You’ll need a zip utility in order to unzip the files to view them. I use Winzip and it’s free. You can easily find more zip utilities by searching for on Google for ‘free zip utility’.
If you have a hosted website your going to have to upload files to your their servers on occasion. I use and recommend Filezilla. It’s easy, fast, and free…I just love free stuff!
Keep track of your sites stats. Track page loads, unique visits, returning visitors, as well as about any other stat you can come up with. I use the free version (go figure) which tracks your last 500 visitors, ect. but you might opt for the payed version that tracks most everything all the time.
Need a banner made, or a image re sized, or your ego boosted lol. Somebody at Fiverr.com will do it for you, and you guessed it…it will only cost you five bucks. I tend to be technically challenged, but I don’t care, I just get Om at Fiverr.com to take care of it…and you can too, give them a visit.
Need content written for your blog? Need articles written for article directories? No worries, just drop by Iwriter.com and get those articles written for you…for just two bucks! Yep, all the content you need for cheap…I love cheap stuff too
This website offers software that I’ve heard good things about. Truthfully I haven’t even bought any yet, although I’m going to buy the social submitting software soon (I’ll do a post about it.) Anyway, check them out if you’re in the market. They got lots of cool software and their prices any very reasonable.
