I wanted to list all the tools that I regularly use. I’m sure you’re going to need these if you’re doing anything online, whether it’s email marketing, affiliate marketing, blogging, any online business for that matter.
You need tools and that’s what I’ve listed for you below. I use most of these on a daily basis, so I hope you’ll find them useful too.
The aim of this page is to save you some time searching for the resources required to get set up, get images, create landing pages etc., now you have it all right here at your fingertips!
Feel free to bookmark this page in your browser, or better yet, create a folder for all the tools and links below, and add each bookmark to this folder.
With the tools below you’ll be a productive powerhouse!
Below I’ve listed my top free resources any marketer needs. If you’re looking for images to add to a blog post, or you want to create eBook mockups, or save a word document to pdf, then these resources below are the ones you’re looking for.
If you’re looking for Royalty Free images, look no further, Pixabay is fantastic, I use them just about every day. Other free images sites include Pexels, Picjumbo and Unsplash. With these sites, you’re bound to find the image you’re looking for.
At Placeit you can upload your front cover and it will place it onto any of the book mockups they have on the site. You don’t get a very large copy or image to download, but for a landing page it’s perfect.
Here I find Foxit Reader an easy to use tool to create a PDF from a Word Document. As the name states, it’s a pdf reader, but you can easily save a document to pdf.
GIMP is an open source program used to create & edit, a free alternative to Photoshop. I use gimp daily, it’s very easy to use and everything you’ll need from an image editor.
Another free image editor is Pixlr, but this one is via the Web. Here you can select a standard editor, similar to Photoshop, or Pixlr Express, where you can quickly add effects for Instagram photos for example.
For some viral traction, check out makeameme.org. Here you can add text or a quote, select an image and you’ve got your very own meme! You can also select pre-made memes to upload to your social accounts, simply browse their library and select the one applicable.
If you’re an online marketer then you’re going to need to create a landing page of some sort. You’ll most likely need an autoresponder too. These two tools I consider “must have” tools, they’re crucial to any online business. The same can be said for any PLR products that you want to offer as your own. You’ll need to put it out there before you can start building your list. With a Landing Page creator like the Thrive Content Builder, and an autoresponder like Aweber, you’re ready for success.
For your landing page or otherwise called squeeze page, consider using Thrive Content Builder, Divi Builder or Optimize Press. Each of these WordPress plugins makes the process of creating landing pages simple and quick, with professional results.
My recommendation is Thrive Content Builder, it’s super easy to use, so do check them out.
When it comes to an autoresponder, I recommend Aweber. I’ve been using them for a long time, and other than the easy to use interface, they’re super responsive and offer great customer care.
Of course, you can also look at GetResponse, they’re just as good and you can’t go wrong with either.
The below are outsourcing sites you can use to hire professionals who may help with the design of your ads, your landing page copy etc.
UpWork is a great place to find freelancers who can provide a wide range of services from copywriting to design. You’ll find all kinds of freelancers here, if you want it done, you can get it done here.
Fiverr offers a huge range of services for, as you’ve guessed it, around a fiver, i.e. $5. At Fiverr you can easily find cheap services like creating an ebook cover, or a landing page, that will cost you just $5.
The quality can sometimes reflect this low price for services, so do some research and find the vendors with the highest ratings, but for a majority of the services you’ll need, Fiverr is a one stop shop to get things done for your, fast and cheap.
