If I sit here and try to explain that one, we would be here til 2030.
Right now I just want to get into tools, and systems that you beginners can decide if it fits for you, saving you precious time and money.

And if you do and don’t catch it, this one will. This one sends readers to any page you want if a 404 error is found.
2. Visual Composer (34$)
Visual Composer is a fabulous Drag and drops page builder for WordPress.

Millions use this one because it’s so vital. It protects your website from spam comments, lets you review them before submitting, even protects you while you sleep.

If you’re looking for a solid blog to follow, the Sumome Plug-In would be it.
Here are some of the features that this software holds:
List Generation Tactics for better conversion rates.
List Builder will let you create a fancy lightbox pop up to build email subscriptions without the silliest other pop-ups bring to our clients.
Sharing images can’t get any easier
Makes sharing content stupid easy for folks using mobile or web
Displays a full-screen call to action when they come to your page, that looks smooth, clean and ease on the eyeballs.
Have you ever asked yourself, where are people clicking on my website? How about where they ain’t clicking? This shows you all.
Pretty little email collection box pops up after readers scroll down the page to a specific spot than it appears.
I use ProBloggers Sticky Top bar personally. The only difference is Some smart bar doesn’t come with changing colors for different messages. This one will do. Encourages folks, to subscribe to email, click on a specific page or rounding up Social Media Awareness, a solid call to action bar it is.

This plugin cleans by removing post revisions and spam in a click.

W.P. Editorial Calendar
Drag and Drop Editorial Calendar, this one is a must.
Keeps you focused on what’s next to write about and gives you a content marketing strategy to follow staying on business goals at hand.
Are you writing at least once a week?
You need this.
Just want to mention, Visual Composer Plug-In comes into play of designing your website static pages or posts, too.
It’s a time saver for sure.
Anyways, Premium Themes is where designing websites begin.
If you spend any money online, buy a premium theme. Don’t use free ones.
8. Website Theme and Framework
Studio Press Themes with Genesis Framework is where it’s at?
Why do you limit yourself from all the other options online you ask?
Because I love what I can create, love user-friendly experience, and damn good price for any business on a budget.
Social Media Tools
…Use tools to control your sassy social profiles, do it yourself.
Beginning, you should only be present on three or four.
Be effective in those, then add more channels later..
I Repeat Do Not..
Don’t blast the same message across the board.
Differ from the pack, add value to each comment you make.
Different audiences and purpose so change chats.
I mean really, you don’t need a super-duper production team for creating videos. I use a 3 yr old recorder and tripod, costing around 100 bucks.
I do it in my living room in Tallahassee, Fl.
Also, I use the Snag-It platform to record my on-screen content
The more personal you get the message, the better empathy folks will feel with the topic.
Can’t get any more personal than videos.
The best tool you need is to write like you talk, period. I just made that tool up.
Tread lightly here, on picking softwares.
Use the tools that you feel you need the most improvement in.
Here is Mine:
Grammarly for all the basic writing mistakes we might not see.
Helps clean up grammar you haven’t learned in 15 yrs.
Here is three Headliner Softwares, just to give you an idea or get juices flowing.
Plus, titles are the most important sentence of any blog post or page.
Always remember, these tools are for ideas for titles.
Don’t just copy and paste.
Play with it a little.
Portent Idea Generator
Tweak Your Business
You can print or download Titles
Gives you specific categories (love, best lists, business,etc.) headliners
Also, check out “Tweak Your Biz” Thesaurus on this website.
Hubspot’s Blog Topic Generator
Hubspot is one of my favorite Inbound marketing blogs to learn from, so if you need help go there.
Gives you 7 ideas to blog about.
Enter the nouns and watch the tool do its magic.
Sales Funnel Tools(20/month)
Some call to action mini tools I use are,
- Problogger Sticky Bar
- Sumome Plug-In for mega lead generation features.
- Image Widget for mini custom banners
But the main lead generation tool I use is Aweber.
Yes, you guessed it, an email marketing tool that every and all business types need if they want to capture readers, convert them into customers, friends, followers.
How else are we gonna get permission to have a one on one conversion with our targeted audience?
If you don’t have this, to get it, learn how to use it, and pick the one that fits your business needs
