Below are a bunch of links to the products, tools and services that I recommend.
Wealthy Affiliate – the online community where I learnt how to create websites, SEO, keyword research, marketing skills and everything affiliate marketing related.
It’s also where I host my websites and even purchase domains. It’s an all-in-one platform – from training, to hosting, domain names, keyword research and content creation. Full review here.
I am also a member over at *Dare To Conquer* – which is a good option if you’d rather pay a one-off fee for training, rather than an on-going membership fee.
The training includes things like: in depth Pinterest training, SEO training, a community where you can connect with other bloggers in your niche and much more… You can access a free 12 day blogging bootcamp here.*
Website Creation, Domain Names And Hosting:
I host and create my websites over at Wealthy Affiliate.
I generally buy my domain names either at Wealthy Affiliate or Namecheap.
Jaaxy – the keyword research tool that helps me find great keywords that rank in google. Full review here.
LSI Graph – Free LSI keyword generator.
Aweber – I’m currently with Aweber for all my email marketing stuff!
Shareasale – Another large affiliate network that I use.
Panthera Network – A CPA network that I use for certain survey-site related offers.
Amazon Affiliate Program – One of the first affiliate programs I ever joined.
I’m currently with MEDIAVINE for Ads.
One of the highest paying options if you would like Ads on your website and they’re great for bloggers!
You do need at least 25,000 sessions per month to apply!!
Design And Themes:
.The GENESIS framework – My theme is currently the Genesis Lifestyle Pro theme, which is simple to set up. Genesis themes are highly regarded by many as being some of the best wordpress themes available. You can find all the Genesis themes available here.
CANVA – where I create a lot of the blog post banners on my site. It’s free to join! Visit Canva here.
Pinterest scheduling tools make Pinterest SO much easier. This is one of the new ways I’m experimenting with traffic and can be a great one to go for, with quite different results to Facebook, or Twitter!
I’m using both the tools below at the moment, because they both offer something different and compliment each other.
Tailwind – There are various levels you can pay for. At the moment, I have a standard membership and can schedule 400 pins a month, but if you want to upgrade to pay annually, you get unlimited pins.
Free Five-Day-Pinterest Bootcamp*, from Dare To Conquer.
Kindle Spy – An awesome tool to use in conjunction with K money mastery for seeking out the best niches and to spy on other authors within your niche – and check out exactly how much money they’re making! Full review here.
If you’re interested in Freelancing to boost your blogging income, this is a popular route to take. I have heard of many bloggers who actually earn more from freelancing in the end.
I recommend the course, 30 days to freelance success, by Gina Horkey.
It’s a course I’ve taken myself and Gina is a great teacher, who presents things in an easy-to-digest fashion. Gina went from zero- $4000 a month freelancing, in just six months, (with a full time job!).
If you’re interested, you can also pick up this free guide to 200+ freelance niches here.
Fiverr – awesome site where you can purchases for as low as $5. You can purchase a huge array of thins, writing, art work, editing, copyrighting, seo work, ebook covers. But quality varies! I’ve found ebook covers are good quality. Read about Fiverr here.
