Below, you’ll find a list of the various digital marketing tools I use. I only recommend tools, services, and resources that I use myself. This is because I believe in the products I list and because I’ve used them for a long time.
Building sites, e-commerce shops, and Funnels
- Namecheap – my go-to domain name registrar. I also use them for private email hosting (getting extra email addresses)
- Elementor Pro – I use Elementor Pro for building sales funnels, landing pages, and customizing e-commerce shops.
- Astra Pro – The fastest WordPress theme. Very feature-rich and reliable. I use this Astra Pro for all my projects.
- Lead Pages – Great for building landing pages quickly and don’t want to deal with WordPress.
- Bootstrap – Build high-speed landing pages for your performance marketing campaigns with Bootstrap.
- Envato Elements – High-quality digital assets libraries for creating great content.
- ThemeForest – the best place to get your WordPress themes.
WordPress and e-commerce Hosting
- Cloudways – Easy to use cloud hosting platform that allows you to select the cloud infrastructure of your choice. This option is ideal for people who aren’t very technical, yet want to host their WordPress, Magento, or Prestashop Store on a high-quality cloud infrastructure.
- A2Hosting – Reliable managed hosting service for non-technical users. If you’re looking for 1-click Mautic, Opencart, or vTiger CRM installation and don’t have any technical knowledge, this is a good choice.
- DigitalOcean – My go-to cloud server provider. I use DO for my personal projects (including this site). DigitalOcean offers unmanaged virtual private servers. Only recommended if you are technical and are familiar with managing Linux servers.
Research, SEO, and Intelligence Tools
I use these services and for competitive research, niche (market) research, and content marketing planning.
- SEMRush – One of the best SEO tools on the market. Ideal for marketers who are looking for competitive intelligence data in both organic and paid traffic domains.
- Keywords Everywhere – I use KE always (and everywhere). It pulls research data from Google Keyword Planner and inserts it into your workflow, saving you a lot of time.
- Google Keyword Planner – I use GKP every day for doing research and campaign setup. If you aren’t an active Google Ads advertiser, it won’t show you exact data. In that case, you can use keywords everywhere in that case to get the data anyway.
Email and Marketing Automation
- Activecampaign – Great service for creating highly-complex marketing automation sequences and email marketing campaigns.
- Mautic Marketing Automation – Powerful open source marketing automation for those who need data privacy and features that can rival the services such as Activecampaign.
- Surveymonkey – Easy to use survey building service at an affordable price point. I use surveys in order to ask my audience questions, so I can better serve them.
- Google forms – Free, easy form, and survey builder, by Google.
Customer Resource Management
The customer resource management systems (CRMs) listed below are selected based on price / value as well as ease of use. I mostly recommend these,
- AgileCRM – Easy to use CRM system that’s suitable for small businesses and freelancers.
- Pipedrive – Very easy to use and lots of integrations with other tools. Easy to use, while offering the best features that a customer resource management system should.
- vTiger CRM – For those in need of data privacy, yet don’t want to break their bank account.
Analytics and Tracking
- Google Analytics – Most popular free analytics tool on the web.
- Matomo Analytics (Piwik) – Open-source web analytics application. Recommended for businesses who need full control over their data.
- Redtrack.io – Quality third-party tracking service for media buyers, performance marketers, and offer owners.
