Resources

I’m constantly researching, testing and buying tools to help make my life online as easy as possible. As a way to help other people that are trying to make money online I’ve put together a list of the best Internet Marketing resources I use.

I’ll keep updating this page as I test and use new and improved tools to help grow my online income. I recommend bookmarking this page for your reference and convenience. Thanks!

 

Content Creation

iWriter – A great way to source everyday content. I use iWriter on some of my Adsense niche sites. All submissions are run through copyscape and you have a lot of control over the content you are presented with. Recommended.

Textbroker – Similar to iWriter however with Textbroker you pay per word and not per article. Use Textbroker for low quality niche website content.

Odesk – If you want to work with a content creator long term then I recommend hiring a Virtual Assistant from Odesk to do this for you. You can find a variety of highly educated VAs for a great hourly rate.

 

Web Hosting

Hostgator – Great for hosting your niche websites. Cost effective shared web hosting platform that I have used exclusively for over four years. Control Panel includes a one click WordPress installation feature.

GoDaddy – GoDaddy make a great web host but an even better domain registrar. I use GoDaddy for all my domain purchases. If you plan on build a niche site portfolio look into joining their domain club.

 

Keyword Research

Long Tail Pro – A great tool to use when conducting niche site keyword research. Long Tail Pro speeds up the process of keyword research by providing an easy to use interface packed with all the information you need to make an informed decision on keyword selection.

 

Outsourcing

Odesk – I’ve clocked over 5,000 hours on Odesk and have used it as a great way to engage with virtual assistants for ongoing work. I’ve used Odesk to find staff for web admin, customer service and content writing requirements.

Elance – Another great way to connect with offshore contractors and experts. I use Elance for project based work with finite timeframes such as graphic design work.

 

Niche Websites

WordPress – A great website platform that is flexible, intuitive and powerful. I use WordPress exclusively as the website platform for my niche websites.

Theme Forest – The go-to location for finding the right theme for your WordPress website. Packed full of great looking and functional themes that will make your website pop.

Photo Dune – The best place to look for stock images to use for your blog or niche website. Cheaper than it’s competition and just as good. Use Photo Dune to give your niche website a professional edge.

 

SEO

Unique Article Wizard – Link building tool to help you rank tier 1 backlinks. Avoid using UAW to build links to your main niche website however it makes a great tool to build links to high quality sites that do link to your niche site.

 

Note: In the spirit of full disclosure please note that some of these links are affiliate links where I receive a payment if you decide to purchase through them. With this in mind please note that I still believe these to be the best providers in their respective niches and would not recommend them otherwise. Using these links does not increase your price but does help my business to grow.
