My ToolBox

In my Internet marketing work, I rely on some set of tools to help me get things going.  When I started my journey in online marketing, I came to learn that you can do nearly everything by yourself. Whether it is keyword research, writing articles, creating videos and so on, it is possible to do them on your own.

To successfully carry out most of the tasks in internet marketing, you need the skills and time. Unfortunately, you can only do so much in a day. But you still don’t want to lag behind with building your business. And this is where you will need some tools to help you.

The tools (call them software, apps, or whatever) will:

  • Help you save time
  • Make your work easier
  • Provide more accurate results

Some tools are free while others cost some money.  For those that cost money, most usually have a free or paid trial period where you can test them to see if they will work for you. If you do not have any money set aside for your online business, you can take advantage of free trials for most of the products. However, I highly recommend that you invest in the tools as they will greatly improve your chances of success in your online business.

PS: When buying a tool/service, think of it not as a cost but as an INVESTMENT in your business.  Here are the tools that I use and I’m sure will help you in your online business.
