Recommended Tools & Resources – Dominate Online

Richard's Recommended Online Marketing Tools

I truly believe your workmanship is only going to be as good as the tools you use, therefore it is imperative to get the right tools to do the job. If you are just starting out, you will need a small start up budget for tools, I will provide a first choice and where possible an alternative choice.

Basic Web Stack (Set-up)

Without the setup I am about to mention below, you will not be able to even get started with your online marketing business. Everyone has their own opinion on what's right, wrong or better. What I highly suggest is that you follow my suggestion and once you become familiar with everything, you can make the changes required based on the right information not on opinion or hearsay… cool?! 

Siteground Hosting

SiteGround Hosting

SiteGround Hosting is my number 1 recommendation for hosting. Excellent customer service, very fast and lots of features included in their pricing which other hosts would normally charge for such as free SSL's (to make your site secure) 



WordPress is the best facility to use to host your website and online presence. In my opinion, it's always better to ‘self host' your site as it's your business and you have full control. Plus, you have maximum support in terms of plugins and integration that building your website should be a ‘walk in park'. Normally you can access WordPress from your host. Further details are below

Thrive Themes

Thrive Themes is an excellent solution and addition to WordPress. If you want a great looking website, be able to market your content whether it's a blog or a specific landing page such as a squeeze page or a sales page. Thrive handles them all and much more. It literally is a one stop shop for online marketers

AWeber Click Automations - Click this, send that


Aweber is the engine that drives the majority of online marketer's businesses! It's been around from the start, they are super reliable and absolutely great tool to use if you are an absolute beginner or a seasoned pro. 

Active Campaign

This is a brilliant Autoresponder service, even if you are just starting out in this digital marketing business, Active Campaign will grow with you. Automation is the way to go with email marketing, even if you are not quite their yet, the benefits of this package out ways the cons by miles. Definitely worth considering. Plus, EVERYONE integrates with Active Campaign so no issues down the line!


Kartra is in it's final phase of testing and it's official Launch is in March 2018. However, I believe this to be ‘Hands Down' the best facility if you are intending to pursue your business online. It's a one stop shop for any online marketer and will save you money (and stop SOS – Shiny Object Syndrome)
