Our Top 3 Must Have Software Tools

ClickFunnels

ClickFunnels is the only landing page/website builder that doesn’t just build pages, but builds entire sales funnels. And it’s so easy that any one can create, edit and optimize funnels by themselves. It’s almost like they don’t need us… almost 😉

WordPress

WordPress.ORG is a free platform that Small Businesses use to create websites that are easy to create, manage and update. WordPress powers about 60% of websites online and almost all hosting providers offer one-click installations of this leading Content Management System.

Email Marketing

Aweber is a powerful Email Marketing tool that integrates with many popular online marketing software tools. They have great customer services and their platform is one of the widest used in the industry.
GetResponse has been growing in popularity due to it’s easy to use interface and analytics. It also integrates with many other tools, but not as many as Aweber.

Landing Pages

OptimizePress is a landing page software that works with your WordPress site either as a plugin or theme. It comes with a complete WYSIWYG interface, many common landing page elements (like bullets, feature blocks, guarantee stamps, etc.), and a funnel building system. With OptimizePress, you also get OptimizeMember (which allows you to easily create a Membership Site) which is why OptimizePress is what I recommend to most of my clients as a complete tool for their online marketing needs.
LeadPages is an easy to use, point-click-change landing page software. It is built with optimization in mind and there is very little in the way of customization. However, it is very simple and quick to create converting landing pages, integrate them with your autoresponder, split test your pages, duplicate them and more.
