Resources for Entrepreneurs | Chris Marcell

Kickstart Your Success

The following tools that I’m about to share with you are some of my most valuable assets that I use to run my entire business. Now, it’s true that tools are just tools until someone who’s knowledgeable actually puts them to good use.

But if you’re looking for some new resources that can help you scale and generate more sales – then you really can’t go wrong with the tools I’m about to share with you. So, let’s get into what some of those resources are…

1.) Aweber

Aweber is the email marketing solution I recommend to new business owners. The reason why I chose them rather than the competition is because of their really low cost and great reputation. These guys have been one of the leading email service providers since 1998.

For my business, I want the best and having Aweber as my email marketing solution gives me freedom of mind. The interface is straight forward, the autoresponder does its job and the high deliverability rate is icing on the cake.

2.) HostGator

The next tool up is HostGator. I’ve used them as my hosting solution since the beginning of my internet marketing trials when I was creating niche sites. I still use them now to host my website and will definitely use them to host all future websites that I create.

Choosing HostGator was due to its user friendliness and fast customer service. Whenever I had an issue with the hosting, they were able to find a solution within minutes. These guys know what they’re doing and the quality service proves just that.

3.) Leadpages

Great design is good business… if you’ve had trouble in the past with converting your traffic into red-hot leads then Leadpages may just be the solution to your issue. When it comes to making sales, getting targeted traffic is only half of the equation. You also need to be able to convert that traffic at a high rate.

Leadpages makes it easy to set-up high-converting landing pages in just minutes. I use this service for all of the landing pages that I set up for my business and after testing out their designs, I wouldn’t go back to the previous “amateur” designs that I was using before.

The Money Is In The List

If you had to pick just one tool from above – I would recommend Aweber. Most marketers who get started in this industry go directly to the hit-and-run method of affiliate marketing. While it’s possible to make a good amount of money with this method, it’s short-term money.

This is something that took me awhile to understand but I feel many people could benefit greatly from learning this. When I was building niche sites selling ClickBank products the traffic eventually died out and the commissions stopped coming in.

But if you create an email list – you can market your products to them over and over again for a much longer period of time. Especially, if you’re successful in creating a relationship with your leads. Once you have them on your list, the traffic never dries up and the commissions will keep coming in. The money is truly in the list…
