My 9 Favorite Tools for Driving Business Growth

Here is a list of all of the tools, resources, books and other fun stuff that I have used to build my online business over the past few years.

BlueHost – Bluehost is online hosting provider. I highly recommend using Bluehost for your first website, and you can get started now at only $2.95/month, which is an exclusive WeekHack reader deal!

SumoMe – Tools to Grow Your Website’s Traffic. Analytics, Scroll Box, List Builder, Welcome Mat, Heat Map, Image Sharer and a lot of others different apps from one service. And it’s free!

Teachable – Easily create an online course with our powerful yet simple all-in-one platform. Provide a world-class learning experience.
Let Teachable do the heavy lifting so you can focus on what matters – creating courses with our user-friendly interface.
Allow your students to easily sign up to your school, view curriculums and previews, and purchase your courses.

DotCom Secrets – This is literally Russell Brunson’s playbook for building an online business. When I read it, I expected a very surface-level overview of online marketing, but Russell went deep…WAY deep. He shows you how to build sales funnels that actually convert. Very impressed with this book.

ConvertKit – Email marketing provider. A more robust alternative to MailChimp. ConvertKit is worth checking out if you plan on doing any segmentation based on purchases or activity (you should be doing that). It’s also more of an all-in-one stop for landing pages, opt-in forms, and email marketing. Great alternative to using LeadPages and MailChimp separately.

LeadPages – Hands down, LeadPages is the best way to quickly create great looking landing pages. In addition, they include a variety of testing and deployment features and offer a complete suite of truly helpful products.

LeadGrab – LeadGrab allows you to utilize powerfully engaging content that already exists in order to drive traffic and increase conversions of your related products/services.  In other words – you get the sales without creating the content.  You get the sales without spending years trying to build your brand.

SmartBribe – This is an awesome tool from Bryan Harris that helps you convert opt-ins into viral growth.

Evernote – Create a project to-do list. Jot down a reminder. Or snap a picture of a sketch. A note can be anything you want it to be. And once you make a note, it’s accessible wherever you go, forever.

Please note, some of these links are affiliate links, which means that if you click on one of the product links, I’ll receive a small commission. This helps support the blog and allows me to continue to make free content. I only recommend products that I use and love. Thank you for your support!
