Tools & Stuff

Welcome to the tools and stuff page. I am often asked about the tools and the resources I use each and every day to grow our businesses. This industry is quite simple if we make it that way for ourselves, and having the right tools that make our life easier is part of that. No fluff, no recommending poor products, just the facts on what is and is not working and useful.
Below you will find information on products that I use everyday. If I don’t use it in my business, I don’t tell you about it. And for the sake of complete honesty, in some cases I may make Affiliate Commissions from these products (I also offer many FREE products and solutions where practical – and this helps keep our costs down.  Enjoy!

List Joe

This is a great emailer and one of the originals! The good thing about this is that it is free and you can earn credits so that you can email others. There is also a paid option to reach a larger audience and to avoid the need to review emails for credits. Word of advice, open a new Gmail account when you subscribe so that your inbox doesn’t get full and remember you are there to promote yourself and your products – not to buy everyone else’s!

Viral Hosts

This is the follow up site to Viral Url and has been very successful for me. It also has hosting options and is Viral URL with a number of added features. Just remember the tip for List Joe – set up a separate Gmail address as your receiving address for all the emails. Also be pre-warned, when you join for free there are a number of once only upgrade offers – if you want to the paid version grab them – but if you don’t you can always go back and re-join at a later date with a new email address when you are ready for them!

Viral URL

This was the first emailer I ever used and the first dollar I earned on the internet came from here. Use the tips above when signing up – but this is a great free source of promotion.

Trying to create blogs, sales / squeeze  pages for your business can be extremely frustrating when you don’t know how to do it. Below is a list of products that we use to create all of our sale / squeeze page requirements.

Kajabi

Kajabi is a very powerful platform that enables you to create amazing sales pages, sales funnels, squeeze pages and membership sites with literally a few clicks of the mouse. Used by some of the biggest names in the industry for product launches and web design, Kajabi gets a big thumbs up from us.

Optimize Press

Optimize Press is a WordPress theme that creates sales pages, squeeze pages, membership sites and product launches. It works in a very similar way to Kajabi and enables you to create squeeze pages etc with ease. I use both Kajabi and Optimize Press to create all of our websites etc.

 

Payment Facilitators

There are a couple of main service providers for Internet Marketing. Be aware PayPal can freeze your account and all of your funds on a whim if anyone complains about your service.

AlertPay

This is a very user friendly provider, and allows network marketers to use it openly without question. You can also earn commissions for others that enroll from your referrals (like me!).

WARNING: ALERTPAY – NOW PAYZA IS CURRENTLY TERRIBLY UNDERSTAFFED – IT TOOK THEM 37 DAYS TO DO A WIRE TRANSFER FROM ME AND THEN THERE WAS ZERO COMPENSATION FOR THE DELAY. UNLESS YOU ARE DOING BASIS US$ TO US$ BE VERY CAREFUL. THEY SHOULD BE USED AS A LAST RESORT FOR DEPOSITING FUNDS UNLESS IT IS A LAST CASE RESORT. THEY ARE ALSO MOVING AWAY FROM NETWORK MARKETING CLIENTS.

Autoresponders

Autoresponders are the life blood to starting any list – and a good one makes life much easier and can be the difference between getting your email delivered or hitting the spam folder. Free autoresponders are an option – but your LIST is critical and it is one cost that is worth incurring so that you contain full control of it. The charges generally increase as the size of your list does, but by that stage you should be getting a good return from the list to easily cover that cost – if not ask me for advice to make sure it does!

Aweber

In my opinion this is the market leader. A good autoresponder is necessary to build relationships with your potential customers by being able to send emails to them. Just be aware that there is a standard monthly access charge, and then as your list increases past certain quota’s the fee will increase.

Get Response

Another good autoresponder that some people prefer. Just be aware that there is a standard monthly access charge, and then as your list increases past certain quota’s the fee will increase.

Talk Fusion

Something I believe will be the way of the future is video email, and for the best quality Video Autoresponder I would not go past this. There are some great video emailers listed below, and some of them are free (but generally have costs to upgrade, private label etc), but if you want the automated autoresponder advantage so you can set and forget your standard emails, then this is definitely the way to go. Also I have found with the other free one’s that when you want the upgraded features it costs more than what it would have to start here in the first place.
