I am using various tools for my internet marketing business. Being an Online Entrepreneur you must own these tools otherwise sustaining would be challenging. I use these tools very frequently for various purposes;
Domain Name Registration#
Godaddy and Namecheap are my favorite to register any domain. I check out their prices and based upon that I buy the domains.
I am an Online Marketer as well as a Researcher. Currently I am using eHost, Bluehost and Hostgator for hosting my websites. You might be thinking, why I am using three hosting services? As I said, I am a researcher and do lots of research on online products. I find these three hosting service companies are pretty good. You can choose any of them for your web hosting. These are Most Trusted Web Hosting Companies for Professionals and Small Businesses.
Keyword Research Tool#
I use Google Keyword Planner Tool very frequently for getting instant results. But for detailed indepth reports I use Long Tail Pro and Market Samurai Keyword Research Tool. I would recommend you to go for Long Tail Pro Version 3, it’s easy and simple to use. And you will get the results instantly.
I personally use OptimizePress and StudioPress Themes for all of my blogging sites. These are awesome themes. With very less efforts even a layman can build a blog site. There are many predefined templates available to use. Check How to Start Your First Blog Site Using OptimizePress WordPress Theme.
