Marketing Tools and Resources

Tools and Resources I Use and Recommend to Start a Work at Home Business

On this page, you will find links to the resources that I use on a daily basis. I’ve only listed the resources that I actively use and that are responsive. Some are free to join. However, as with all online advertising resources, maximum benefit comes from upgrading.

I suggest starting out slowly and add to your advertising portfolio as your budget and time allow. This list can look daunting to someone just starting out. Don’t be overwhelmed by it. It’s not like you have to go through all of this tonight and have it all up and running tomorrow. Remember to take each task one step at a time.

This page is designed to be a reference page … a place you can return to again and again as you look for new techniques and tools to add to your marketing. If you’re just starting out to work from home online … it’s a BUSINESS just like any other business. Just like a carpenter, electrician, secretary or beautician requires tools for their trade, an online internet marketer needs tools to build a successful online work at home-based business. There’s a large learning curve here and you need to GIVE YOURSELF Time to take it One Step At A Time.

RoboForm – Password Manager Program – Keeps track of all of my logins, usernames and passwords, so I don’t have to. (Try it free.) One click navigates you to the site, enters your information … and gets you inside. The most incredible time-saver in Internet-Marketing. The FREE version works great and lets you store a lot of web page Logins, but eventually it will ask you to upgrade to Pro. It’s a one time charge of $29.95 and they update you forever. It’s the best thirty dollars I’ve ever spent. – RoboForm

It’s software that allows you to store all of your important information, documents, pictures … even all your RoboForm Login files … so that you will NEVER lose them.

It stores all your information in an online secure server so you never lose your passwords or important docs in a computer crash, and you can access them from any other computer. Like RoboForm, it’s Free to download, but when you get to a certain amount of information you’ll need to upgrade to the Pro version to keep on using it. – GoodSync

Marketing Systems – Funded Systems

It’s not the product, the service, or the opportunity … in fact, it’s not ANYTHING you’re selling or promoting that’s going to be the thing that guarantees your success.  It’s the SYSTEM you use to work online.

If you want to make money on the Internet you need to have a comprehensive and DUPLICATEABLE system to promote your business. Duplication is the key to success online. The people you bring into your business must be able to do the same things you’re doing to succeed.

The system must also contain full TRAINING. If you’re just starting out you might not know everything there is to know … you might not be ready to teach your new business partners yourself. You need a system that will do that for you! If you’re a seasoned marketer … you don’t have time to teach each new business partner individually. You need a system that will do most of that for you.

You want to make sure that there is good, solid training available. You also want to make sure that training is available in both LIVE and RECORDED forms … AND … you want to make sure the trainers are top notch.

There are THREE SYSTEMS I use and recommend. Here’s information on each and how to get your own:

Second Income Coach – is a Funded Proposal and Funded Sponsoring System the brain-child Gerry Schroeder and partner Janet Legere, experienced Top Network Marketers and coach. Whether you are an Internet Marketer, Network Marketer, MLMer, Direct Sales Associate, Affiliate Marketer, Small Business Owner or a total Newbie, SIC was made for you.

Second Income Coach or SIC is a complete and fully customizable marketing system that not only provides users with the best resources, but IT IS also a magnificent top-notch Network and Internet Marketing training System. It was developed by savvy active online marketers. Learn internet and network marketing strategies to create unlimited targeted leads and earn a Second Income working from home office. Perfect for newbie’s and seasoned marketers.  SIC contains full training for the Newbie, and many “Downline Builders” that will help you create what every Internet marketer really wants … Multiple Streams Of Income!

The system is free to use. The best thing is that the SecondIncomeCoach system is GENERIC. It works with ANY online business … you don’t need to join mine to make it work for you! So, if you already have a business or opportunty you want to promote … SecondIncomeCoach is perfect! You just plug in your own business … and GO!

A BIT OF ADVICE: If you’re new at marketing online, I would start with only one system … especially if you don’t as yet have a mailing list of your own. I would choose one system and stick with that until you have at least 2,000 people on your mailing list.

A note on Safelists. When joining Safelists, you will be asked for two email addresses. One for an admin address (so the Safelist owner can contact you, also know as your contact email address), and one for your subscribe address (the email address that will receive all the safelists emails from the other safelist members). Make  sure your subscribe address is not your main business account, or you may never dig yourself out.

The key with safelists is to stick with using a splash page. Of course you’ll want to create a nice headline, a good body, but the link they click in your email needs to be a splash page to your list. Then they’ll only have one thing to do: subscribe.

Lead sources I recommend … in this order:

If you get yourself on auto-ship, you have a 10% discount on every order. They also run great Specials. This is a service where you pay per package purchased. AND … if you promote it … you can earn commissions that will cover your future purchases. The result … FREE LEADS! – JOIN

Skype – Phone and instant messenger service – JOIN

Yahoo IM – Straightforward instant messenger service – JOIN



Everything above is something I use almost daily to promote my business and make money online. In fact … most of them PAY ME to use them. That’s how they work. I always think it’s better to use tools that pay me for using them. Additionally, all of these tools WORK. If you’re just getting to know me, you’ll find that I won’t recommend ANYTHING that doesn’t work because everything I recommend I USE AND IT WORKS FOR ME!

So … hope you find something helpful here, and I hope you’ll return again and again. I’m always looking for new things to add to my repertoire (send me anything you think I might be interested in), and this page will be updated often!

Wishing you Success in Internet Marketing!
