Tools to Automate Your Online Business

The great thing about building an online business is that there are some fantastic software tools available that make automating everything so much easier. No matter where you are in your business they can save you time and stress whilst automating key marketing activities, and save you thousands of dollars spent on coders and designers.

All these tools are easily available through monthly or annual subscriptions. The trick is knowing the tools you absolutely need for your particular business model. Sometimes investing a little more in a product that will perform many tasks rather than just one or two will save you money in the long run

On this page you will find my recommended software tools.  It is a short list because I don”t believe you need a lot of software products to build an online business.

Before moving to Kartra I used Leadpages and ConvertKit to automate my marketing.

If you are working to a tight budget and just want to start with the products you absolutely need, then a Landing Page software and an email autoresponder is your starting point. You send traffic (YouTube, Ads, Podcast, Social Media) to your landing page with an opt in to get your leadmagnet. You then add these subscribers to your email list and send them emails using your email autoresponder.

The combination of Leadpages and ConvertKit will allow you to do this simply and quickly. In fact, now that ConvertKit includes a landing page tool, this may be all you need to get started building your sales funnels.
