Here is a list of a LOT of amazing websites that I have come across in my time online. It was inspired by Kim Roach at Buzz Blogger.
I was reading hers, and while it is a LOT more extensive than mine, mine covers what works for me. I hope you find them both useful.
AWeber – Industry standard, brilliant customer support, tons of amazing web form templates, and email templates, second to none.
Mailchimp – great for importing a list without proof of optins, they will not allow you to use with affiliate links though, but good for other businesses.
Imnica Mail – great value for money autoresponder, limited user interface.
Hostgator – I’ve found them reliable, good customer support, good value for money
Bluehost – another excellent and highly recommended hosting company, great value for money and flexibility
Facebook – brilliant interaction and ad targetting
Twitter – the 80-20 rule applies on here – 80% of people are there to read what you tweet about, the other 20% are the ones tweeting, so use this to the max!
StumbleUpon – only just started using this and now just by adding my record label pages to this, I get over half my traffic from StumbleUpon!
Pinterest – new and rocking! The best thing about this site is your image you post – or that others like and share to their profiles – has a link back to your site. Get a viral image and BOOM! Great job!
Not knocking the others but these are the ones that work for me the best.
Keyword Research / SEO Competition Checking :
Market Samurai – I made a blog post about this on it’s own its so awesome – it tells you your SEO competition and a WHOLE lot more too
Stealth Keyword Digger – Amazing tool that works perfectly with SKCA – I wrote a review on it here and the maker is currently offering 2 for 1 at a crazy price of $37. How much do you value your time? For me thats about 1-2 hours work when I freelance – no brainer!
Traffic Travis – still getting to grips with this one but it is AMAZING all the things it can do and the free version offers SO MUCH! Again, a total no brainer! PC only though. I will write a proper review about this soon.
Free Stock Photography – a great site for most things, its free to download all the images but make sure you read what the photographer is happy for you to license the use for first
Real Time HTML Editor – I use this to modify my web forms, test my email newsletters before I send them out – instant results, copy and paste the html, change bits and see what it does right away – totally free, LOVE IT!!
BackUp Buddy - what I love about this is that
Can’t beat Fiverr! So long as you check the feedback of the user! HUGE time saver, LOVE IT!
I have loads more to add to this list but will do this ASAP – I need sleep for now!
