Welcome to our online business tools page. We get asked all the time what tools we use for our affiliate e-commerce stores so we have compiled a list below of some of our go to tools, themes and plugins.
We have always used Godaddy for our domain names and have never had any issues. There are a ton of domain name companies out there that you are free to use and you would simply forward your domain name to your hosting provider however we do now recommend Siteground as well to keep all your business hosting and domains in the same place.
Through trial and error we have used just about every hosting company out there over the years. Some great and some not so great. We have found that Siteground has been the best one for what we use our websites for. They have great service and a live chat that comes in handy often. They truly have the support at your fingertips. You can also get started with Siteground for as low as $3.95 a month.
Kadence Themes has always been our go to for our e-commmerce type themes. They work really well with woocommerce which is the platform we use for our wordpress eCommerce affiliate business. The support is top notch and pricing is very reasonable. Check out how beautiful their themes are here. We personally use the Virtue theme for all our affiliate sites however all their themes are beautiful and work great for an eCommerce store.
We use Aweber for all our email marketing needs. Part of marketing is capturing customers email addresses so that you can do future marketing to them. It is no secret the profit is in the list. Aweber allows you to create multiple list as well as auto responders that you can set up to automate your whole email campaign. Hands free and low cost is the goal and with Aweber you get both.

Listed here are just a few of our favorite affiliate networks. Your goal is to find companies who have a product feed you can download via ftp, email or by a special link they may provide. These networks and most affiliate networks are free to join. Check them out and see if they have any vendors you would like to start working with for your new automated e-commerce website.

If you have never been to Fiverr.com you have got to check out all the amazing things they offer. This is a freelance site and you can get things from logos to website code updates, videos, voice overs and so much more. And the best part is most things start as low as $5.
