Tools We Like And Use
When used properly, these tools can liberate your time and help you generate more sales and revenue. If you choose to try any of these tools, we will most likely earn a referral fee, which we use to create valuable tutorials, videos and bonuses for you. And naturally, we only recommend tools that we have torture tested in our own business or with our valuable clients.
Landing Pages, Lead Generation, and Web Pages
ThriveThemes is another tool we use and it's a very fast way to build landing pages, sales pages, and webinar pages.
Despite being a theme designed for use on WordPress, Thrive Themes integrates with a wide-range of third-party SaaS platforms so you can have pages up and running in minutes instead of hours.
Thrive Themes is loaded with templates and makes it easy to change color schemes, collect leads, and even set up membership sites.
Online Shopping Cart Software
Instead of paying a monthly subscription fee or a percentage of sales, we like ThriveCart. You can use the ThriveCart-hosted checkout pages, or you can embed your shopping cart on your own web site.
It works well and integrates with a wide-variety of membership site software, fulfillment software, payment providers (like Stripe and PayPal), Slack, and Zapier. ThriveCart also has built-in
Marketing Automation Software
I use Ontraport in my business every day. It helps me collect leads, follow up with automated email sequences, sales pages, sales fulfillment, membership area automation, and more.
It doesn't matter if it's 2PM or 2AM or whether I'm in the office or on the beach, Ontraport is working tirelessly to initiate and nurture relationships with my prospects, leads and customers to increase my conversions while saving me hundreds of hours of time.
It's perfect for authors, consultants, internet marketers and coaches.
A number of my clients and colleagues use Infusionsoft to automate their marketing and sales funnels. Like Ontraport, Infusionsoft will help you collect leads, follow up, and close sales with its integrated order forms.
It does have a higher startup cost due to the initial set up fee, but a number of third party integrations are available (e.g. dentists can integrate their Dentrix billing systems). Infusionsoft is a good solution for companies with up to 25 salespeople.
Video Calls / Video Confrencing
If you're making video calls or doing video conferecing from a noisy room, Krisp will help you remove the background noise using artificial intelligence. Not only does it remove your background noise, it can also filter out the background noise the other callers are experiencing.
Video Post-Production / Video Editing
Video post-production, or the act of taking your raw video footage and turning it into a finished video that's ready to publish, can be both a major pain and a major time-sink. Frame.io makes it much easier and much faster.
We use Frame to upload our footage, make time-coded comments for our video editors, and to review revisions. We estimate this improves video-editing efficiency by at least 40% and dramatically improves turn-around time because our editors can import our comments directly into the timeline in Final Cut Pro (FCP / FCP-X) or Adobe Premiere.
