Products That I Use And Recommend
I've tried dozens of tools, systems and educational courses and find that 90% of the time they are complete rubbish. There are, however, a few tools and resources that I am still using to this day to build my blog and this page is where you can learn what I use.
The basics of growing your business online are simple. You need a website where you're able to publish great content that can attract visitors and also host your opt in pages and funnels. For this you need web hosting, a theme, a landing page builder, and email service provider.
I have personally tested the recommendations on this post. These are the tools I use and recommend:
Please note, some of the links mentioned on this page are affiliate links. That means I will recieve a small commission from the supplier of the services at no extra cost to you. With that said, I only promote or link to products and services I personally have researched, tested, believe in, and items that I personally use. You're free to purchase directly, but I would really appriciate if you decide to buy via my affiliate links. And if you decide to purchase anything using my links, I would like to give you some really cool bonuses
I hosted my first ever website on Hostgator. As a beginner, their customer support was amazing. They provide support on call 24x7. Recommended for people starting on a budget.
This is the fastest shared hosting available in India. I host all my affiliate sites on Siteground. Best recommended if you want to host multiple affiliate sites.
Hostinger provides the cheapest hosting rates in India. The servers are also close to India, so it's the best if you want to target your affiliate sites for Indian market.
Landing Page and Funnel Builder
Although overpriced, this is the easiest funnel building software available today. If you have $$$ to spend, this is the best choice for you.
My personal recommendation and hands down the best wordpress funnel plugin in the market! I personally use Thrive products, and I'm a great fan!

An email list is the most important asset for any blog or online business. It's packed with so many features you will be amazed by the quality of this plugin. The best lead capture plugin and also the one I use on this website
Thrive Landing Pages
There is only one theme I use and recommend on my websites and that is the full Thrive membership. It includes the themes, the landing page builder, the optimize tool (for split testing) plus the quiz builder and the countdown timer and more…
Since I am starting on a budget, I use mailchimp for my email marketing needs to save some money. It comes with free use for upto 2000 subscribers. Signup for free by clicking the button below.
G Suite is recommended for getting a [email protected] custom email address for your business.
Simple, feature-rich & elegant! This is the best email autoresponder for beginners. It comes with a free plan upto 1000 subscribers. I use it and you should too!
Versatility on a Budget. GetResponse claim to be the easiest newsletter tool available, with a lot of pro features. It also comes with a landing page feature and offers so many customization options.

Sell Online Courses
If you want to sell an online course or share with the world your knowledge then you need a tool that can help you deliver your online course with ease. It also comes with a free plan where you can sell unlimited courses.
Hands down, the easiest way to set up free online course lead magnets with a premium course feel is to use Thrive Apprentice. Also used for selling paid courses.
Funnel builder, 1-click upsells, coupons, discounts, MEMBERSHIP INTEGRATION and much much more. Best cart plugin if you wish to sell paid courses on your wordpress website.
Dominate keyword research like a pro! I used SEMrush to find 100s of keywords ideas that no other tool could give me. All my affiliate sites research is done with SEMrush.
This tool complements SEMrush and helps you discover the keyword difficulty. I have used multiple tools, but this is the one with best user interface and most accurate and updated search data.
For as low as $10/month, you can get access to their pro tools. It's comparatively slower than KWfinder, but it does pretty decent job of giving accurate keyword difficulty.
Social Media Tools
Best tool for designing banners and featured images for your blog. I also use this for graphic design for my clients.
Social media management tool for bulk uploading and scheduling posts on various platforms. I have used this to manage my client's social media accounts.
An alternative to buffer with similar features. I prefer this over buffer due to simplicity, and had also purchased a paid plan for my client's accounts.
If you are into blogging or if you are not so confident about your writing skills, this is a must have tool. I always write my articles in the Grammarly premium editor.
