Long Tail Pro/Platinum – For keyword research on any site, I use Long Tail Platinum. Long Tail Platinum allows me to research multiple keywords and it only gives me with the information that MATTERS when it comes to choosing a winning keyword. I would not build any site without this tool.
SEMrush – This is another tool that I like to use for keyword research. It allows me to find long tail keywords that my competitors are going for. It is a healthy addition to Long Tail Platinum and it makes building larger niche sites an easy chore.
Thesis Theme – This blog was built using the WordPress theme known as Thesis. I chose this theme because of how easy it is to customize. With the help of the thesis support forum which is available after purchase, anyone can look like a professional web developer. Many online marketers have even built their entire business around development for the Thesis Theme.
Odesk – So far I have mainly been using odesk for my outsourcing needs. Over the past year, it’s what I am use to, however this next year I may try testing out other outsourcing services.
Aweber – There are many list building softwares available for online businesses. Aweber, is my list building service of choice. It is simple to use and it allows me to create customized opt in forms that convert like crazy!
