THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO SUCCEED AT EVERY LEVEL
Welcome to the resources section, a curated list of the tools and websites I strongly recommend for building and optimizing your business.
Of all the products we’ve used, these are the most important to us.
The expression that the Internet is the “death of distance” is meaningless unless we’re able to harness that power.
For example teleseminars allow you to dramatically expand your reach far beyond what was possible – to get new business, provide better service, and connect with customers in a more intimate way.
Being able to easily and inexpensively convert content to streaming audio and powerful video has been priceless for us.
Perhaps you will find one or more of them valuable as well.
The resources listed here are crucial to running my business and crucial to developing our business to where it is today.
Before digging into the awesome resources I know and trust, be sure to read our affiliate disclosure page. While we only recommend what we’re using and believe will add value to your business, we do receive commission when you invest in them.
Effective Market Research Tool
Historically there were only two options for doing effective market research. It was either ‘people at work’ – either you personally or someone you hired to perform the mind-numbingly tedious tasks. Or it was ‘money at work’ – paying money to advertise and do promotion where you thought your prospects might be. Advertising is now pay per action, so if you are good at figuring out where your prospects are, ads can be very cost effective. Even so, the best traffic you’ll ever get is still organic – people looking for what you have on offer finding you via a search engine. So, if you invest a little effort fine tuning your organic search efforts not only will you get more traffic, it will make the money you invest in advertising more profitable.

Online events build lasting relationships while increasing profitability. This is the best way to connect with your prospects and customers to present your products and services. The resulting collaborative environment creates a true mastermind atmosphere for business development. Super-easy teleseminars help professional coaches connect with their clients in groups, work with professional partners, generate client leads, and make more money. And business owners use this powerful platform for their mastermind groups – online collaboration with their peers across the country and around the world.

Video Marketing Toolkit
A turn-key system that creates the video, and promotes it for you. It is more versatile than any other. Nothing to learn or download. You can create screen flow type videos, have them narrated by a professional, a robot, or you. You can convert txt into video in no time and upload it to YouTube and a dozen other services. We have used this function to attract YouTube traffic to our site. Plus we use it extensively for our clients in the member’s only area. And if you want to excel when it comes to YouTube video marketing we have used the ever evolving video traffic academy. Start taking advantage of YouTube to drive traffic, build your brand, generate leads & boost your revenue!
The Best Email Marketing Tools
One to one contact via email is still critical to your success. The better you are at attracting new business for less money than your competitors the more profitable you are likely to be. The right email marketing tools mean that your advertising, promotion, marketing, and customer service dollars can be leveraged like never before. What attracted us to this tool is that there are NO ongoing monthly fees – no matter how big our lists get!
All the best!
