Each listing was chosen to give you exceptionally high value. If you need help implementing them after you make the purchase, I’m here to help.
This list is dynamic. I add new products and services as I learn about them and remove those that seem dated. Please let me know your experience as you use these resources. If I get complaints, I’ll remove the listing.
I do NOT recommend anyone who will hassle you about a refund or who has a no-refund policy for ebooks and other information products. With a course, software tool or workshop, you usually have a window of opportunity (e.g., after the first session) to request a refund. So as soon as you buy, begin testing the tool or system to see if it works for you.
Full disclosure: I do get a commission when you click through most of these links to make a purchase. You can bypass my links and go directly to these sites. Your cost will be the same either way.You do not pay extra when you buy through me. When you buy a big-ticket item through me, I usually offer an extra bonus after the commission comes through.
Setting Up Your Business
Design your business – This comprehensive course walks you through 3 models of business that may work for you. You’ll get walk-throughs to generate passive income from affiliate marketing, blogging and kindle books.
Simple Podcasting – For podcasting I recommend this guide by Connie Ragen Green. A lot of people make it seem difficult, so you may feel intimidated before you start. Connie keeps things simple and gives you realistic “not for gurus only” tips.
Earn 5 Bucks A Day by Dennis Becker. A realistic step-by-step guide to getting your business started.
Write Your Ebook in 7 Days by Jim Edwards — The only ebook you’ll need to create and sell info products. He’s one of my favorite people. If it was a paperback it would be worn and dog-eared by now!
Good Tools To Make Your Business Work
Web Hosting: For less than $10 a month you get unlimited domain hosting, outstanding support and easy WordPress installations. Another good choice is Hostgator, which I’ve been using for almost ten years, worry-free. I’ve heard people complain about service but they’ve been excellent for me.
Back up your blog with this easy WordPress plug-in. You can protect your blog and also make it easy to clone your blog as you create multiple sites.
For webinars and client consultations, I use Zoom Video Conferencing. I prefer this system because you get to share your screen. It’s much more reliable than the free (or nearly free) phone conferencing services.
For email marketing, I recommend ConvertKit or Birdsend. ConvertKit has the greatest number of integrations and the most flexibility. Birdsend offers nearly the same opportunities at a considerably lower price.
For membership sites, I recommend Member Mouse.
