These are all the tools I personally use in my business every single day and I only recommend it here because I believe they will help you too in growing your home business.

Must Have Tools To Build Your Home Based Business:

Aweber – Building your email subscriber list is the #1 priority in your business. Aweber is my favorite email autoresponder, it’s reliable, very easy to use and built for marketers. I found that most online marketers use Aweber in their business.

LeadPages – it’s one of the easiest, fastest and best landing page creation tool online. It has over 80 state-of-the-art templates for landing pages, sales pages, webinar pages, thank you pages and much more, pretty much anything that you want can be customized, with full A/B split testing capabilities, I use it all the time personally. 

CRM – Customer Relationships Manager – all the fortune is in the follow up. CRM allows you to effectively follow up with your prospects, save all of your interactions and important notes about them and schedule tasks to follow up. You are in a relationships business, and if you follow up like a pro, you can turn interested prospects into profit. This tool alone was responsible to 10X my profits and if you don’t use CRM right now you are leaving a lot of money on the table. You can get it for free by being a member of MLSP. 

Funnelizer – Create entire marketing funnels with ease in a matter of minutes, track your conversions, fully customizable point and click templates. In a similar way to LeadPages you can create capture pages, sales pages and thank you pages, but the major benefit is it integrates with the CRM and with 4 other autoresponders simultaneously! It’s a total game changer specifically designed with the home business entrepreneur in mind. You can get it for free by being a member of MLSP.

You can add custom buttons, arrows and 41 other elements to any post and page on your blog…and the design and coding is super clean. 

It’s very easy to add a banner header that will brand you, create a featured homepage with your video and opt-in form and it comes with in-built cool sidebar opt-in form templates…

Thrive Leads – This plugin will satisfy all of your list building and lead generation leads on your blog. You can create all kinds of totally customizable opt-in forms to capture leads ANYWHERE on your blog…It’s the best plugin I have ever seen and I tried dozens different ones…

Add an opt-in form to your sidebar or any other widget area, add a ribbon type form which shows at the top of the screen and remains “sticky” as the visitor scrolls down the page, create attention grabbing popups, automatically insert an opt-in form at the bottom of your posts or insert them anywhere using a simple short code, create 2-step opt-in forms and slide-in forms from the corner of your blog…you name it!

It has advanced targeting capabilities to build hyper-targeted and profitable lists by showing your forms only on relevant pages or posts or other criteria…

It has all the advanced split-testing that you will ever need to boost your conversion rates, and it gives you all the reports.

In short, this is a freaking cool plugin, and if you get your blog setup through me I can even give you this plugin for free!
