Finding the right tools and resources for your Online business is hard work. I’ve personally spent hours upon hours setting up and testing many different softwares and services. The one thing I’ve learned is to not trust a sales page. You’ve got to actually try it out. These are the current tools that I use for myself and my clients. I have personally tested and used every resource on this page.

Wordpress Website Hosting:
I use WP Engine hosting for all of my WordPress Websites and all of my clients WordPress Websites. WP Engine comes standard with a firewall to protect against hackers and malware attacks. WP Engine is fast! It’s optimized for WordPress Websites and has faster speeds using their built in Evercache technology. WP Engine does automatic daily backups. This brings peace of mind in case you mess up your Website. With the click of a button you can restore it. WP Engine’s support is awesome because you know you’re talking to a WordPress specialist.

Marketing Automation Software:
Do you have the ability to scale your business? In today’s digital world, you want to be able to build your email list, create membership Websites, create advanced lead funnels with automation, and track your progress with your clients. Ontraport is the solution that I recommend and use to help my clients scale their businesses.
One of my favorite ways to generate leads is holding a Webinar. Webinars allow you to teach something valuable to your attendees and then offer them a product or service that will help them do what you just taught them in less time or for less money. I love and use Everwebinar because it is a hybrid model. It allows you to play a pre-recorded webinar (automated), but allows you to moderate the Webinar live. This allows you to present your best Webinar presentation while having the time to answer your attendees questions. You can see it in action by registering for a Webinar at a Website I built called TryDayTrading.com.
eCommerce Website for Physical Products:
I usually build all my Websites on WordPress, but occasionally I get a client that sells a lot of physical products and needs a great shopping cart that tracks inventory. The best in the industry, in my opinion, is Shopify. You can check out a Website I built using the Shopify platform at CutHub.com.
Contest Giveaways and Promotions:
I love running giveaway contests to build social proof. When you’re first starting out, you need to build your numbers for your email list and social platforms. Gleam is great at doing this. The first entry is adding them to your email list. They can then get additional entries by following your social channels and watching videos. They can also get additional entries by referring friends. I ran a trading laptop giveaway on DayTradeAcademy.com and got 1,541 leads in 30 days. Note: I used the Pro account so I could integrate with Ontraport.
