My Favorite Tools for Marketing My Online Business: 3 Awesome Things That May Make Your Life and Marketing Easier (and bank account bigger in the process)
July 16, 2015
These days with online marketing there’s no shortage of the choices available to grow your business.
It’s not a matter of whether you’ll market your business online, it’s how you’ll do it.
Now I’m not the most tech savvy woman in the online marketing industry but I am a total nerd when it comes down to finding tools to make my life easier.
Today I’m sharing some of my go to’s that I use most often and pretty much can’t live without.
Canva’s been around for a little while now, but it’s one of my favorite resources for creating images for my blog (just like the one on this blog) and my social media posts.
Since online marketing requires a lot of images to boost your visibility, you need resources to help you quickly create them.
Canva’s service is free and their templates are a breeze to use. You can upload images of your own or use their’s for a reasonable fee.
But they have dozens of templates, text types and image sizes to use.
I like to use them for quick images, pictures for social media, blog posts and even for my opt-in pages for my webinars and sales pages.
Need quick and easy images, create them in Canva. Check them out here.
Speaking of opt-in pages let’s move on to another one of my favs.
Back in the day I would host a webinar or teleseminar and insert the html code from my mailing list onto a page on my website and that would be my opt-in page. Sure I got a lot of registrations but it wasn’t the easiest or prettiest thing to do.
Then LeadPages came along and I jumped on the bandwagon as soon as I heard how easy and supportive it would be. As an early adapter I found that there was no point in setting up my own when the tech geniuses already had.
LeadPages is wonderful for use for your opt-in pages, thank you pages and sales pages. They’re not just great for webinars and teleseminars but helping you build the front end of your sales funnel just by setting up your opt-in pages to give away your Free Offer.
If you haven’t tried LeadPages yet then now’s the time to check it out. Even if the following link wasn’t an affiliate link, I’d still recommend them because they’re that good and I know that if I didn’t have it for the last few years marketing my business would have been that much harder. Head here to check them out.
So this one is my new favorite but I’m already hooked.
As soon as I heard there was a system that helped me build my sales funnels, product launches, sales pages, membership sites and automated webinars, I thought, “Okay this is a must check out!”
Now I’m just diving into it and already loving it but what I love is that it really simplifies your entire online marketing process.
Using this service can help not only simplify your marketing efforts but also help you save some cash. Here’s how. They allow you to integrate your email service and shopping cart so you can generate sales and seamlessly add new clients to your mailing list.
Plus once you’ve made a sale for one of your services, products or programs you can also set up a funnel that leads to a membership program.
When you think about it can save you hours of time and a great deal of money.
I’m just in the process of digging in deeper and using it to build out my business further to both support my marketing and online business. Head click here to check it out.
