If you’ve read a few of my tutorials, or even if you’re semi-experienced, these are the tools that are going to up your game.
Good Web-hosting for your Landing Pages
A lot of people use free services like Blogger or 000WebHost. Don’t use these; you don’t have full control of your content and you risk losing your landing pages.
- I use Hostgator for all of my hosting needs, they’re great and very cheap
Go for the baby pack so you can add unlimited domains and you can scale up your operations easily
Domains, Top-Level (TLD)
Again, people use free domains to much. These will lose you traffic. Make sure you’re investing in your landing pages. Buy .com domains and other legitimate company domains.
- I use Hostgator and 1&1, both are similarly priced
Avoid going for .info or foreign domains if you’re not promoting to that country. Make sure you pick something relevant to your niche too
You can sit on Social Media all day and push your content, but it’s time wasted that could be spent chilling out or scaling up.
- MassPlanner is the software that I swear about for automating my social media
It works with all major social networks including instagram and pinterest. You can also put unlimited social media accounts into it’s hugely versatile system. 100% needed.
SEO Software, So You’re Not Aim With Your Eyes Closed
SEO is super important. Most of the world’s traffic goes via Google first. So make sure you’re ranking.
- You can get free SEO software such as Traffic Travis to help you with this
Most of this software will help you analyse, benchmark and improve rapidly. This is important because you need to be beating your competitors down to have any hope of earning.
Good CMS, Keeps Things Clean, Powerful, Tidy
Content management systems make websites easy to build. When you’ve bought some hosting and got your domain, installing a CMS is super easy with Hostgator‘s “QuickInstall” feature in the cPanel
- I use WordPress for every project that I don’t code my self
Powerful Information Resources, Communities
While it’s definitely a great thing that you’ve read through my CPA marketing tutorials, sometimes its best to build relationships with other people too. Exchanging ideas, growing and helping other people in CPA is great.
- The Dojo is one of the most lucrative places that you’ll find
There’s a bunch of alternatives but none are quite comparable.
Tracking, Helps You Benchmark, Improve
If you don’t know who your target market is, you need to find out. Tracking and analytics tools will tell you everything you need to know about your market. You can also see how well your CPA campaigns are doing comparatively.
- Google Analytics is unbeatable for this
I’ll add more to this list as time goes on. Please comment any suggestions you may have for this list too!
Until next time, Josh
