THE TOOLS YOU NEED TO SUCCEED

Welcome to the Get Real Click’s Resources section, a list of tools and other resources that I use or have used to help excelerate my business and profits. The intent of this list is to help give you those same tools in one place so that you can put everything together more quickly and make more money in a shorter period of time. 

Also, I sell solo ad packages and I want to sell more. The only way I do that is by making sure you are making enough money to grow your business and therefore you can continue to buy solo ads from Get Real Clicks.

Millions of websites are hosted on Bluehost. Why? Bluehost offers the convenience of hosting multiple domains under one account. Plus, Bluehost boasts amazing features, and their team provides exceptional support. Get started now at only $3.95/month, which is an exclusive Smart Passive Income reader deal!

Elegant Themes

For years, Elegant Themes has been offering some of the best themes and certainly one of the best drag and drop page builders in the industry. The other thing I like about Elegant Themes is the site builder/page builder called DIVI. With DIVI you can build anything in WordPress.

Instabuilder

Instabuilder has been one of my favorite tools for building quick and easy landing pages. There is even a secret code you can use to increase your revenue without any change in the quality or volume of traffic you are sending to your page.

Start Email Marketing and List Building

Aweber

Aweber is the only 3rd party autoresponder I would recommend for solo ad emails. They are slightly more lenient on affiliate links than many of the other autoresponders out there, and your list is the life blood of your business, so I would net risk it to another company.

Quick Courses To Get Started

Solo Ad Business E-book

This free cheat sheet delivers 7 Steps to a Successful Online Course, and is a great place to get started if you want to build online courses.

This is from David Siteman Garland and his awesome online courses material. David is one of the most popular guests on the SPI podcast.

Getting Started With Solo Ads Video Course

Power-Up Podcasting® was built with you in mind. If you’re a first-time podcaster and you’re looking for help with each step along the way, this is the course for you.

You’ll learn everything you need to know to create, strategize, launch, and market a successful podcast.

1 Secret That Will Increase Your Income 20% in 10 Minutes

Smart From Scratch® is a hands-on, comprehensive course that enables you to develop a business idea, validate it, and determine if that idea is viable to pursue.

I’ve both failed and succeeded in building products and businesses, and I’ve poured these experiences into Smart From Scratch to give you insight into business strategies that truly work from start to finish

Books That Will Inspire You

WILL IT FLY?

This is my newest book all about validating your next business idea without wasting your time and money. Thanks to you and the SPI community, it is a Wall Street Journal bestselling ebook.

ASK BY RYAN LEVESQUE

Ryan Levesque’s Ask explores an essential aspect of business we often forget about: asking open-ended questions. By doing this, as Ryan explains, you can truly understand your audience’s pain points so you can deliver a top-quality service or product that’s 100 percent matched to their needs.

THE $100 STARTUP BY CHRIS GUILLEBEAU

Chris’s book is a sweet blend of The 4-Hour Work Week (but more realistic), and Rework (but more actionable). He draws upon a wide variety of on- and offline businesses for his examples.

Legal Stuff and Trademarks

LEGALZOOM

This company will assist you with easy online incorporation or LLC creation. They are not a law firm, but can connect you to a lawyer near you if you need one. I’ve used them for business incorporation.

USPTO TRADEMARK SEARCH

Before you create a business, I highly recommend that you search through the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s search tool to make sure that the mark you want hasn’t already been registered or applied for.

Keep Your Website Secure

SUCURI

My websites are my business and my livelihood! I don’t want any intruders, so I pay a yearly fee to make sure that if anyone tampers with my sites, it’ll be taken care of right away, with alerts/notifications letting me know what’s up. Sucuri is definitely great for peace of mind, if anything.

LIMIT LOGIN ATTEMPTS

Install this plugin to limit the number of times someone can attempt to login to your WordPress admin panel before getting blocked. This helps to stop those who keep trying to break in by logging into your website with different passwords (and there are tools to help speedup this process).

Use Images LEGALLY

DepositPhoto

When you run a lot of sites like me and have VAs doing a lot of work, it seems inevitable that you will receive a note saying hey that’s my photo, take it down, give me my credit with a link, or in the worst case, pay us $1,000 for copy write infringement.

Don’t risk it. These images are so cheap for the few you will really need.

Create Good-Looking Videos

SCREENFLOW (FOR MAC USERS)

This is the screen capture software I rely on to create high quality, cleanly edited tutorial videos. If you’ve watched any of the software walkthroughs on SPI TV, then you’ve seen what Screenflow can do. It’s a great teaching tool.

CAMTASIA STUDIO (FOR PC USERS)

PC users, this is the screen capture tool for you. It offers many of the same features as Screenflow, but designed for PCs. Use it to create walkthrough videos to teach your audience.

BAMBOO PEN AND TABLET

This is the pen and tablet I use to make drawing on the screen extremely easy.

CANON REBEL T4I

This is the camera I use to record videos on my own. While I always recommend to start shooting video with your smartphone, when you’re ready to upgrade to a DSLR camera, this is a great choice. I like the auto-focus feature (in video mode while recording, which is rare), and the flip out screen so you can see yourself and make sure you’re where you want to be on screen.

Cloud Storage For Files

DROPBOX

Dropbox not only allows you to safely and securely storage your business files, but, if you’re working with other people, it makes it easy for you to collaborate on shared documents. The basic plan is free.

Sell Your Products with These Shopping Carts

SAMCART

SamCart is the easiest to use shopping cart you can use to sell your online products. From courses to eBooks and more, SamCart has amazing features such as sales page templates for easy setup, 1-click upsells, and more! I’m also an advisor for the company, so it definitely has the Pat Flynn stamp of approval! Click the link for an exclusive 14-Day Free Trial to SamCart!

PAYPAL

Paypal is just okay as a solution for selling products, but you’ll need to create an account in order to receive payments from the previously mentioned shopping carts.

Automate Your Business Processes

DEADLINE FUNNEL

Deadline Funnel gives you a way to automate your business marketing funnel by giving each prospect a unique and authentic deadline so they have a valid reason to buy—and buy now!

CONVERTKIT

ConvertKit is a powerful email marketing platform that does a tremendous job of automating processes in email list management, allowing me to focus my efforts elsewhere while it hums along beautifully.

Tools to Help You Nurture and Grow Your Business

SUMOME

From the creative minds of AppSumo comes an amazing suite of free tools to help grow your blog and increase traffic. Over 10,000 blogs (and counting!) use these free tools.

LEADPAGES

LeadPages is an excellent tool for growth. LeadPages helps you convert viewers into subscribers or buyers. Best of all, LeadPages works both with WordPress and non-WordPress sites.

TYPEFORM

Typeform is an excellent tool for creating surveys and forms to embed on your website. I use Typeform to power my contact page. It’s as easy to use as Google Forms—but it’s much prettier. Their free plan is pretty powerful, and you can unlock additional features (like skip logic) with a paid plan.
