Tools I Use

There are a bare minimum of IM tools and services that you need when starting out to make money online.

I’ve tried a number of services over the last couple of years, and these are my preferred group. The most very basic tools one needs for making money online include:

Website Domain

1and1.com offers 99-cent domains for .com and .net. The renewal fee is currently at $14.95.

Namecheap.com offers .com domains with a renewal fee of $10.47. WhoisGuard is just $2.88 per year.

Website Hosting

I’ve used VodaHost for several years and I’ve been very pleased with the overall uptime and the level of service. Support is conducted primarily via email but it is topnotch.

SiteGround is my preferred host.

Email Autoresponder Service

I use a couple of services. The one that’s been around as long as I can remember is Aweber.

Graphics

TribeBloom is a website that’ll email you free graphics to use on social media:
Free Weekly Social Graphics

Headlinr Headline Creator

Certainly not a required service, but it has cut thinking time down by 90% when it comes to choosing and writing the best blog headlines and email subject lines.

Web Content

Private Label Rights (PLR) Content
Ronnie Nijmeh’s been on my radar for a good while, and although his company has diversified into many areas, including offline marketing, podcasting, and coaching, they still produce high-quality content.

Web Tools

AppSumo 
Offers a range of web apps and online marketing tools at prices you won”t find anywhere else.

DropBox
For online storage and file sharing, DropBox has been around as long as any of them, so you’ll find that it’s integrated with a number of other online tools. For example, a free WordPress plugin works with DropBox to provide auto-storage for your website/blog back-ups.

Countdown Timer for WordPress, HTML Pages, and Email
This is sold as an email countdown timer but I’ve used it successfully on webpages too. It’s a keeper!
