EMAIL EFFICIENCY:

  • BOOMERANG – Have emails boomerang back into your email, when you are ready to work them. Great efficiency tool.

BOOKS & LEARNING RESOURCES

  • READ IT FOR ME – Read it for me has changed the way I consume information. I am an avid reader and wish I had the time to read all the new business books. Read it for me is a book summary service which allows me to understand the concepts and main points of a book. They provide video, pdf, and workbooks for each book. This is a great service and I highly recommend it if you are looking to expand your knowledge about business.
  • IRSPODCAST – The IRS has a FAQ podcast, which has a ton of audio files to help answer your questions about your taxes.
  • IRS ON YOUTUBE – The IRS also has a YOUTUBE channel designed to help you answer tax related questions.

BLOGGING

  • WORDPRESS – This free blogging platform is designed for easy use, and it is very customizable. Most shared hosting platforms allow you to install wordpress easily
  • OPTIMIZE PRESS – Optimizepress is a premium wordpress theme that is worth its weight in gold. If you want to set up a sales page, or run a blog Optimizepress will allow you to do this very easily. This theme is also very easy to customize, no need to learn how to code here.

HOSTING

  • BLUEHOST – All our websites are run off of Bluehost, in my opinion the have been the most reliable hosting I have used in all my years online. Bluehost has a one click install of WordPress which allows me to be up and running in minutes instead of days.

EMAIL AUTORESPONDER

  • AWEBER – I have used a couple services for managing my email lists, and Aweber has been the best. They have a very easy and intuitive set up. They have great support as well as a step by step tutorial on how to start your first newsletter.
  • MAILCHIMP –  I have not used this one as much because I like the back end of aWebber better
  • CONSTANT CONTACT – I like this auto responder because you can enter contacts in your auto responder one at a time, or have them sign up on your sight. Also gives you the ability to make dynamic newsletters.
