The Right Tools and Resources
One of the main practice that cause affiliate marketers now starting out to struggle is refusing to use the right tools; usually because they’re trying to avoid buying something… they try several ways to work around buying the tools and end up just wasting time and frustrating themselves.
Don’t make this mistake! The following is a list of highly recommended tools (software and services)… tools that I use myself.
Webhosting - SiteGround
You'll find many people promoting Bluehost and HostGator webhosting. When I first started out, I used Hostgator... and it was ok initially, but then my sites got hacked, not once, or twice, but four times... and it was during those times that I realized how lousy their support was.
I now use Siteground… it’s much much better, their support is stellar, and it is a higher value for your dollar.
WordPress Content Builder, Themes, Plug-ins - ThriveThemes
One of the key steps to succeeding as an affiliate marketer is building your website... and for this, you should be using WordPress.
ThriveThemes is your best bet for building conversion-focused WordPress sites. Their Content Builder (Thrive Architect) allows you to create any type of page you want - landing page, sales page, review page, blog posts, etc., etc. - and it's a pleasure to work with.
It would be poor of me not to mention their Membership Option which gives you access to all of their themes and plug-ins as well as Thrive University, which is full of detailed, easily understood, actionable courses on online marketing.
Email Marketing - Getresponse
Getresponse has been around for a long time and is used my people, including millionaire marketers... so it's been tried and tested. It integrates very well with most other online software and services.
You’ll also gain access to top-notch step-by-step training on how to grow your mailing list
