Mailing lists –We Use MailChimp – I use them every day of every week. Amazingly to set up different mailing lists and get started sending out fancy emails to people that want them. Highly recommended. Go do it !
What you are about to learn about is a big secret in the online marketing world. I’ve been studying and rubbing shoulders with some of the big names in this industry. Once I started to learn about their tools and how they are able to build such vast online marketing empires, I started noticing a common thread between all of them. The people that are making it big in social media and online marketing all use Infusionsoft. This is more than an email marketing program. It is a CRM. It is a shopping cart. It is an affiliate management program. It can handle your direct mail. It can set appointments for you. It can customize the marketing. It can rate prospects to see how interested they are. And this is just the tip of the iceberg. If you want to dominate your industry online click here and join the Infusionsoft Success Marketing Club for free. You will be amazed – just like I was.
Dropbox – The easiest way in the world you will ever find to keep files in sync across multiple machines. You save a copy on machine A, it magically appears on machine B. This really is the closest thing you will find to actual magic.
GoodSync – Backup Software. (You are doing backups right?) I have this installed on every computer I own. It backs up all files to another local drive, or over the internet to an FTP location, Amazon S3 storage, etc. This is the short (twitter) version. The program is amazing and does a ton of stuff. I install it, set up the options, and it runs in the background. I sleep happy and worry free at night because of this software. Get it now.

Logitech Premium USB Headset 350 ( 980374-0403 ) – Picked this up in 2010 in preparation for starting to do regular video and radio shows. I am in love with it. I have gone through a variety of songs and the audio quality can easily compete with the other set of dedicated noise canceling headphones I have. I’ve also notice the cable to the computer is pretty heavy duty compared to most. I am looking forward to using this on BlogTalkRadio, uStream and LiveStream. Go Logitech.
Blue Microphones Snowball USB Microphone Bundle – Great product. Highly recommended.
