Just like a mechanic, Doctor, or Surgeon – they all have their toolbox to be successful at what they do. Online Marketing is no different. You need to have a marketing toolbox to be successful and to minimize the time you put into this business. Remember, when you first start an online marketing home based business it takes work, but if you’re using the right tools you’ll save yourself a ton of time and energy. The best part about this type of business is that the rewards start flowing soon after you start your business, and when you have things all setup correctly, all you’re focussing on is creating content, and driving traffic to your website.
I only provide links to programs I use and have success with, so you can be sure they are worth the money (I am not interested in wasting money and I assume you aren’t either). So without further delay, it’s time to open up my marketing toolbox. (Most of the products on this page are affiliate links. The caveat is if they are already free.)
Marketing Toolbox Necessities
There’s always a tool that you will need in any type of project or business. With online marketing mostly, you will need an email auto responder to stay in touch with your customers/followers. This is a tool that you can not afford to go cheap on. You need the best. You need mobile ready templates. GetResponse is the tool to have that provides easy made templates to send to your list. They give you the reports you need to build relationships with people all the while giving you the business numbers you want and need.
I use this as my primary newsletter and auto responder management tool. If you have signed up for my newsletter, you know how professional these newsletters look! Check out my review and hands on video!
Now, If you’re really a serious marketer. I know you’re already doing email and collecting email subscribers. I suggest using either Aweber or GetResponse if you’re new to email marketing. However, if you’re not new and want to have more control over who gets your emails with automation and segmentation, you should check out Drip.
Drip is a new platform that released in 2016 to a few chosen and now in 2017 have released to the masses. This platform is FREE for anyone that has 100 or fewer subscribers.

Here’s what Dr. Wallach says about the company and his products.
GoDaddy is a great company that offers the ability to register your host name as they are an official registrar. If you’re looking for website hosting, you can do this all in-house with their managed WordPress hosting – assuming you’re going to start a blog using WordPress as your core presentation.
Otherwise, they have many more options to select from that will definitely help you out.
The ease of getting setup is as instant as your buying experience. If you run a blog and are in the beginning stages, I highly recommend using the managed WordPress hosting for their high-speed servers to helping you out with widgets and picture hosting. They have it all to help you rank your blog much faster!
Beyond the technical or don’t have the time? You may want to check out a paid version of WordPress blog rather than the freebie version.
Tracking Solution For Online Marketers
This has to be one of the most in-depth programs out there to help you track your links. However, I have noticed a few times that the link tracking was not working properly. Now this could be either something I did or ClickMagick.
One of the benefits of using ClickMagick is that they have a video for most anything you want to learn about tracking your links, rotator, click fraud, and a few other features within ClickMagick.
You probably noticed that I mentioned rotator. This is perfect for those people who sell traffic. You can add as many users to a link as you would like to. This is a full featured tracking suite that you get for about $12/month when you purchase a full year in advance.
Simple but powerful tracking solution for all your tracking needs. If you have a tight budget, this is the tracking solution to go with while not losing any functionality.
When you visit and put your information in to sign up for an account, you’ll notice that you get a free 30 day trial. What you will soon discover is that there is no free plan on this tracking program nor ClickMagick. If you want free, you’ll have to go to a site called Bit.ly or Goo.Gl along with a ton of other link shorteners.
Speaking of link shortening, I use this more extensively than anything on this blog and it really is a great way to track your links and which ones are getting clicked versus the ones that are not getting clicked. I use the pro version here but by all means, you do not need the pro version. The free version does just enough to get you through what you would like to track.
