Favorite Keyword Research, Marketing & Product Research Software

Do keyword research using relevant/base terms in your posts in a tool such as Keyword Atlas, which will let you search platforms like Youtube, Amazon, Google etc and Social Page Analyzer to search Facebook.
Find out where people are looking for information that is relevant to your products and services.
Go to Quora, Reddit and other platforms to look for questions people are asking, or topics people are talking about relevant to your content.

Keyword AtlasKeyword Atlas My favorite and what I consider to be the most useful, and accurate keyword research tool ever! This tool is not just a search engine keyword research tool, it also searches Youtube, Amazon and many other platforms as you can see in the image to the left. A must-have for eCommerce sites, and a super useful tool for other types of websites too.

If you are looking for a tool to search Amazon for eCommerce product research you can use Amasuite – a full suite of product research on Amazon and Aliexpress. It allows you to check reviews, gives you a list of popular searches, tells you what the best-sellers are in top sellers and much more.

Favorite Content Marketing Software & Graphics Generators

SpinRewiter A content spinner for repurposing your content (produces quality results if you watch the training videos) Fiverr is the world’s largest freelance services marketplace for entrepreneurs to focus on growth & create a successful business at an affordable cost. Great quality fast turnaround banners for ads and websites.


Lightningbase Hosting. In our opinion the most reliable and helpful hosting. Also lightning fast with no php hosting conflicts.

Favorite Plugins & Themes

Social Rabbit – another plugin I use all the time for my websites for publishing content on your website, also products and images sourced from Pixabay. The reporting is great too. Try it for free.

Wordfence WordPress security. Easy to use and great security options.

Generatepress themes. The cleanest fastest wordpress theme I have found. Use it for all your websites for a low cost.

TipsandTricks For really good quality user-friendly and robust WordPress plugins.

Learndash Plugin we have used previously for courses.

Codecanyon for awesome apps, themes and other useful resources.

Dropshipping Websites Personally there are only two themes I recommend for dropshipping. Shopify has a monthly ongoing cost and if you use Oberlo Or Dropified you’ll pay their fees on top of that. If you choose a theme that works instead of the latter two apps with Shopify like EComTurbo, or if you prefer to use WordPress, you can use Alidropship. Read my blog posts about dropshipping here.
