Web Tools To Help Run Your Online Business

434

There are a lot of online tools I use in running my business. Tools which at one point I didn’t know existed, and when I found out about them, I said
“HOLY COW!!! THAT SAVES ME HOURS OF TIME AND THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS!!!”

I attempted to create this list somewhat here, but it was just too much content creation for me (I just don’t like creating ongoing content…that’s why I only blog once a month!).

So, here’s a big laundry list of tools I use to run my business, and just in general good internet websites to know about.

This is a list that comes from my experience in doing online business, as well as the knowledge of my mastermind group.
If you have great sites to add, please add them in the comments. Maybe I’ll add them to my main list if I start using them.

Testing/Tracking

  • Crazyegg.com – heatmap click tracking
  • Woopra – website analytics
  • Statcounter – Not the most detailed analytics, but gives very important trend/keyword data easily. Great for affiliate websites.
