What are the top 10 Internet Marketing Tools I used to grow my business in the past 12 months? In this video, I give ya the low down on EXACTLY what I use to market my business on the Internet. And here they are below…
10. Vanilla Forums
Vanilla Forums is a software platform that creates your very own FORUM for you and your community. I found this software very refreshing. The design is clean, neat and easy to navigate. Vanilla Forums is free, but for a small monthly fee, they will host the forum for you (recommended) and can easily be embedded and integrated with your existing website or blog theme. http://vanillaforums.com/
Beyond that, there are a ton of nifty “plugins" or addons that allow you to customize the appearance and functionality of your fancy forum, including: gamification options, one-cSocial Media Sign-On integration
GoToWebinar allows you to host virtual seminar (webinars) with ease. It has a robust array of tools and functions, including built-in recording, and it rarely has any bugs or glitches! If you are looking to teach, train or speak virtually, I highly recommend GoToWebinar to host your online presentations and meetings.

8. Rhino Support
In 2012, I made the switch from ZenDesk to RhinoSupport.com. Why? It"s cheaper and easier to navigate! Your Customer Support is the Front Lines of your business, and it"s always worth taking the time to choose the best tools to serve your customers. Two thumbs up for Rhino Support.

OptimizePress isn"t a new, revolutionary piece of software…I purchased it in 2010, and I still use it EVERY DAY. OptimizePress is a WordPress Theme that creates sales pages, squeeze pages-even membership templates on the fly! Learn more here: http://www.jameswedmore.com/optheme
6. Wishlist Member

Basecamp is one of those tools that literally changed my life in 2012. Nothing has been able to organize myself and team better than Basecamp. It"s the Internet"s most popular Project Management Platform, and it is simply amazing. You can start organizing your business and your life over at Basecamp.com
If you"re not using VIDEO on your blog, you"re missing out on an entire medium of communicating and connecting with your readers. With these survey results, I did two thing: 1) I made sure all of my blog posts had videos, and 2) I added a cool WordPress Plugin called Leadplayer to all my videos.
3. Contest Domination
There are a few Contest Software Platforms" out there on the Internet. I chose Contest Domination for one simple reason: It integrates with GoToWebinar. doubled my registrants on my last webinar using this tool. To learn more about Contest Domination, Click Here: ContestDomination.com
2. Easy Video Suite
I"ve already written a MASSIVE review on Easy Video Suite here. I"ll quickly explain E.V.S. in a nutshell here: This Software Suite records, edits, converts and uploads your videos to a web-based platform that allows you to endlessly customize your videos, video players and their functionality. If you sell ANYTHING with video, get Easy Video Suite now.
Despite all the requests I"ve had for my recommendations on tools and software, this #1 Tool Selection is the REAL reason I was inspired to write this post. Back in December, I decided to make the switch from a wide array of duct-tape solutions to an All-in-One Marketing CRM: Infusionsoft. I was very nervous and hesitant for the amount of work and effort that I would have to invest to make The Big Switch, but I am sooo glad I did!
Having everything all under one roof (email marketing, shopping cart, etc) gives you far more freedom and control. I can insanely customize my subscriber"s experience to their individual needs, and I can now gather much more accurate data on what is working (and what is not!) in my business.
Infusionsoft is NOT for everyone. It is expensive for most people. But if you"re making money yet experiencing a growth plateau, Infusionsoft just may be the business boost you need. For more info on in Infusionsoft, check out www.Infusionsoft.com
