In order to have a well-functioning affiliate marketing blog or eCommerce site, one needs to employ the right tools and applications that will optimise your marketing and productivity strategies.
It is easy to get caught up in always searching for better tools than what you have, which will take hours and hours of your time and then you still have to figure out how each of them works.
A word of advice, try and keep it down to the bare minimum to get started and as your site grows, you can add more functionality.
What follows is a list of Internet Business Resources and the applications we currently use, and in some cases other useful alternatives that we have either used in the past or are suitable cheaper options.
