Marketing Tools & Resources

Tools Of The Trade

 

Over the years I’ve tried, battle-tested, and put to use dozens and dozens of tools, software, and different kinds of technology.

This list contains my favorites, and those resources I’ve found most helpful in building my own, and my clients businesses.

You do NOT need them all. (The only mandatory tool is an email service provider and possibly a website or landing page service).

So start small. And add on from there.
