Let’s get down to biz’niz tools, shall we?
I love tools. I also love hacks.
Anything that will make life easier is something that makes me very, very happy.
If you want to save time with your marketing efforts, here are some of my favorite tools to get ‘er done.
I know. I’m Dr. Obvious, here.
But MailChimp is one of the most friendly (and fun) email service providers you’ll find.
And if you’re just starting out, you really can’t go wrong with choosing them.
I’ve been with MailChimp for years. I’ve watched them grow and add new features. They’re constantly trying to improve, which is exactly what you want from any software-as-a-service (SaaS) company.
LeadPages is a landing page template service.
If you have a WordPress site, you can install the plugin and directly publish your page on the site.
Or use LeadPages to host the page.
I can’t say enough good things about LeadPages. They have one of the most jaw-dropping collection of tutorials and webinars I’ve ever seen.
Every week they’re churning out new stuff. It’s mind-boggling.
But their rabid passion for innovation is your win.
They recently rolled out their new “drag and drop” design for their pages, which is awesome.
If you join, I’d appreciate you using my affiliate link.
Once you start using landing pages and squeeze pages, you’ll be hooked because they’re super-easy to create, which makes it easy to test your pages.
Yes, you can do A/B split tests, too. (Which I highly recommend.)

This is a fairly recent tool I’ve used.
Sometimes I’ve checked it out to get a finger on the pulse of a particular topic.
It can be a good resource for creating content.
One of the keys to creating good content is finding out what is already resonating with people in your niche.
You can do a search on this site for free (there are limitations) and upgrade to a paid account to discover deeper insights.
It basically tells you which articles are getting shared the most on social channels (they also provide links to the articles).
And it’s not just articles. It includes videos, interviews, guest blog posts, giveaways and infographics.
Buzzsumo is a nice resource when you need the inspiration.
Good stuff, right?
We all need tools to keep up with the crazy-busy pace of marketing.
And of course, another good tool to use is my workbook, “The BIG Marketing Idea Book.”
It’s 30 pages of content about the how, what, why and when of thinking up ideas – then 30 worksheets to help you put it into practice.
If you’re involved in marketing, it’s a constant challenge to come up with ideas.
The “Big Idea” is especially hard to find.
When you train your brain to recognize a good idea you will have a much better chance at finding the “Big Idea.”
Well… schools out!
