As you read through the articles and tutorials, you probably noticed that I sometimes recommend certain resources to help you with your business. I've consolidated these resources here so they are easy to find when you need them. Remember that I use ALL of these resources myself, and I NEVER recommend anything unless I truly believe it's worth it.
Web Domains & Hosting - GoDaddy is one of the largest domain registrars in the world with something like 40 million domain names under management. They also have a complete menu of web-related products and services and their customer service is outstanding (I know this from personal experience). Most of the websites I manage are hosted with GoDaddy and I can't recommend them highly enough.
In order to save YOU some money, I've purchased a reseller account with Godaddy which allows me to discount their pricing and pass the savings on to you. When buying products under this account, you still enjoy the great products and services offered by GoDaddy, just at a discounted rate. Oh and if you want to switch over (even if you're already with GoDaddy), let me know and I'll help you set it up.
Social Networking - For managing all my social networking accounts I use SocialOomph. They have both a free and pro-version available and they've saved me so much time and effort over the last 2 years I couldn't imagine going without them!
Email Marketing - The way you manage e-mail marketing will vary with the type of business you have and what you're overall marketing plan is. For most people a service like Icontact is perfect. However, you may need something else so I recommend you read the following articles before you choose.
- How to Choose the Right E-mail Program or Service for Your Business
- Choosing the Right E-mail Service Provider for Your Business
Business Mentor - Even though I've been at it for a while, I still have my own coach and mentor. His name is Jim Daniels and he has really helped me become successful! He is very successful online himself and he's a solo-preneur which means he does it all himself. This is an important point because many self-proclaimed online business gurus actually have huge staffs which makes me wonder how they relate to people like you and me who are going it alone. He's also spent many years developing hundreds of tutorials and videos on everything internet business related. If you're serious about doing business online I highly recommend him!
By the way, when you click on this link you'll see a video of someone else who was helped by Jim Daniels. This is a great story of how a regular guy has become successful and it's proof positive that you can do it too. After you've watched you'll want to click on the GOLD key at the bottom of the page to get Jim's FREE Work At Home Plan.
