Must Have Tools, Software and Services I Use In My Affiliate Marketing Business…
Below are some of the hosting, themes, plugins, apps and tools I use every day in my business. They make life easier and it helps me get shit done a lot faster.
I to try keep things simple and avoid the shiny objects which is why my list is fairly short.
Check them out because I’m sure they will help you as well. Who knows, they might be what’s missing in your toolbox!
WordPress Theme I Use
95% my websites run on WordPress.
There’s a few themes I use but one I really love to use that is clean, light weight and very easy to work with is GeneratePress.
GeneratePress is the theme I’m using for this website you are on right now.
The free version is good but the premium is version is. packed with amazing features and it’s only a one-time payment of $59/yr for 500 sites.
Works perfectly with all the popular page builders as well.
Best of all, it’s super fast. You’ll be surprised at your load times.
Video Creation Software
Vidnami is by far my favorite app for creating videos.
They used to be called Content Samurai but recently rebranded to Vidnami.
This video app allows you to create videos from a script. This can also be from your blog posts. But the good thing about this app is you can make faceless videos using your own voice, an auto voice OR a voice over.
Video converts extremely well and they’re a great way of getting visitors to your website, landing page or affiliate offer.
Definitely check it out and if you want to make videos as I do, here’s a 25% off discount for the life of your subscription…
SiteGround WordPress Hosting
I’ve tried a bunch of different hosting providers over the past 14 years and none of them have come close to the speed, uptime, and reliability that SiteGround provides.
I have 10+ websites hosted at SiteGround because of this very reason.
You also get free SSL certificates which is important to have these days.
When I moved my sites to SiteGround each site had instant load speed improvements and best of all, 90% of those sites moved up in rankings in the Google search results.
Renewal prices do jump up to full rate so be aware of that when signing up.
Hosting - (BEST OPTION)
Cloudways Vultr - High Frequency
I’m fairly new to Cloudways but so far I’m super impressed.
I moved AMNinjas.com to cloudways with a few other sites
The speed is super fast and that is important if you want to rank your sites.
Support are also fantastic, they’ve been very helpful so far and I’m considering moving all of my sites to Cloudways only because it will work out a lot cheaper.
SiteGround are great but those renewal prices will get you. If you’re looking for something that is pay as you go + no hidden fees then I recommend starting with Cloudways.
It is a little different to most cPanel hosting but once you learn how to set it up it’s a piece of cake!
ThriveThemes are well known for their themes and page builder Thrive Architect but the plugin I use most is their Thrive Leads.
It helps you capture leads with ease. Lots of templates to choose from and optin boxes to use.
If you want to capture emails, I recommend giving them a try.
