  6. 6. 7 Visit Our Website at Introduction Welcome to our Internet Marketing Rolodex!!! We have designed this Rolodex to be the only resource you will ever need for finding I.M. related content, plugins, services, outsourcers, content syndication and just about anything Internet Marketing related. If you think we have missed anything do let us know. We designed this Rolodex as a quick reference for ourselves so we know that all of the product and service providers contained within are vetted and are services we would use and do use in our own business. We then decided that this resource could save IM'ers countless hours just like it had done for us so we decided to share it. Over the years we have learned that Internet Marketing comes down to one fundamental principal - Giving Extraordinary Value!!! The amount of money you make in this game is directly proportionate to the amount of value you put out there. Content syndication sites aside, where we tried to list almost everything known to man, we did not just put any old suppliers in here because we live by the beliefs that quality and value should be rewarded. As a result we have cherry picked our suppliers based on the value of their services. You will even notice that there is a short list of marketers who we respect, admire and who we believe go above and beyond and we felt that with what we had learned from them over the years, their valuable input should be rewarded too. There are loads of ethical and brilliant marketers out there (sorry for not mentioning you) but the ones we mentioned we just found had something special that appealed to the way we do things.
  7. 7. 8 Visit Our Website at Who Am I ? I am Bradley Glynn (sometimes known as Lee) and I have been at the Internet Marketing game since around 2005. I dabbled in it a bit before then but like many others, I seemed to keep finding all of the ''bum marketing'' cheap tactics and useless MLM programs. I knew there was more to internet marketing but could not seem to find the right people and the right information. Later in 2005 my girlfriend and I took a couple's job where we worked on site for one of the richest men in Britain. Our 'guests' included people like Richard Branson, Lord Milford Haven (the queens cousin), Rockstars like Roger Taylor (Queen) movie stars like Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher and many others. Some of the ''lesser known'' ones were investment bankers, entrepreneurs, movie producers etc. Let's just say that we learned plenty from these people and how they live compared to ''regular'' people. One of the main things we learned is that money does not buy happiness. Some of these people's lives would seem farfetched as storylines on Days of Our Lives. Money should be a by-product of what you do rather than the focus of it. If you are chasing money in IM you are likely to hop from one program to the next following the promises of overnight millions. Rather focus on what type of business you want to build and be passionate about it. For us we love creating digital products and connecting with our subscribers as to what works and what doesn't. That is what makes us tick and that is where our success comes from. OK back to the rich folks, it was a level of wealth only a very select few IM'ers even know about, this was old wealth and almost every visitor was on the Sunday Times ''Rich List''.
  8. 8. 9 Visit Our Website at We observed how they did things differently and picked up tips daily. Those stories are for another time. What is important to consider here is how much networking went on. There was a constant flow of tips, information and joint ventures going on all the time and the IM world is exactly the same. Stay plugged into a network, talk to people and provide immense value. Sooner or later that value will be rewarded by the right people with an opportunity. Grab the opportunities that come your way. Sitting on your arse waiting for the universe to hand you success is not going to happen. Forge strong relationships and ask what you can do for people rather than what they can do for you. The other major lesson I learned from these folks was that success is a team effort. They always managed to surround themselves with extremely smart people. They knew their limitations even if they would not publicly admit them and hired the right people for the jobs. So as the boss was away for large stretches of time and we were out in the countryside, I got to work learning about internet marketing. I learned how to do a product launch, how to do SEO both pre and post penguin and panda, where to outsource, how to build websites, how to do video marketing, social media etc. If anything I was so engrossed in learning everything I could that I forgot to take action on a lot of them. Learning became an addiction. Sure you have been there too, I just need to learn this bit, then I will get to work on it, only to discover that there is something else to learn. I don't regret it for one moment as it made my IM knowledge very well rounded but things only started working when I started actioning one thing at a time, developing a system and then outsourcing parts or all of that system for additional leverage and then moving onto the next. We now have several systems in place and do not rely on a single source of income. Fast forward a few years and we arrive here at this Rolodex, we have put a lot of work into it, not just to provide you with the services, but also with tips
  9. 9. 10 Visit Our Website at throughout. We believe that it will give you some insight and you can learn from our mistakes, failures and successes. Through this PDF it is my hope that you will start to feel like you know us and that it is more than just a Rolodex but rather a the beginning of a relationship. Ultimately that is what life is all about, relationships, moments, experiences and memories. I would love to hear some of your stories so that I can learn from you too. We have some very exciting things coming up in the near future and trust me when I say you will be glad we are in contact. To Your Continued Success Bradley Glynn
  10. 10. 11 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1 - Content Syndication
  11. 11. 12 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication a) Content Syndication - Our Experiences In this section, you are likely to find more places to syndicate your content than you will know what to do with. Do not get overwhelmed with the seemingly endless list of sites to submit your content to, there is a very simple way to do this. Follow our 3 step policy to keep things simple: 1) Create content with immense value to your end user. 2) Syndicate it to as many high traffic sites as possible. 3) Use automation tools to syndicate your content. That's it! Look for the sites with high Alexa rankings, and Google your keywords and look for sites that come up first for your search terms and are mentioned on other high value sites. Start to make a list of these sites and look for opportunities to share your content. Building backlinks is important for any website, but for a while now we have focussed more on creating great quality content and syndicating it all over the web for users to find rather than trying to contrive back links to the content on our sites. Only content that is ''remarkable'' will get remarks, likes, shares and be commented on (as long as it can be found). It really is as simple as that. The leverage you can get from people talking about your content and sharing it far outweighs spinning garbage content that makes no sense for the sake of backlinks. It's not just the reach that's important either it's the building of the brand, YOUR brand.
  12. 12. 13 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication We are not dismissing mass link building and we understand it's place especially for short term projects where you are looking to cash in on time sensitive niches such as hot trends. We have just found that for the ''long game'' where the content we create now will be relevant in months or years from now, our subscribers and readers will love us for creating amazing content and we build a strong brand at the same time is much better than hit and run or as it's been called ''spray and pray''. There is no point in trying to play the 'long game'' with ''short game'' tactics. You will live in constant fear of the dreaded Google slaps. We have found a middle ground where simple policies for proven successful activities have the desired effect. If you want to go from zero to 100 000 visitors in a month then this is not for you, but if you want to steadily build followers and visitors then using our techniques will give you a very solid foundation. You know what else we have discovered that is interesting? Since we started treating Google like a spoilt child and took no notice of them and created and syndicated our content for the benefit of our users rather than the search engines, they have rewarded us more than when we were actively trying to get their attention. It's the equivalent of us saying we don't want to play your game, we have created our own and we don't need you. All of a sudden the 600lb brat wants to take part in our game. Go and find your audience, they are not on Google they are on the sites that interest them. Sure they may find those sites through Google but once people know and trust a site they will go there directly, share their content directly and viralize that site's content. Stop looking over your shoulder at Google, you'll be forever playing their game and not finding your own sources of RELIABLE traffic.
  13. 13. 14 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication We split our traffic into 3 types.  Accidental - they stumble across our content (often from Google)  Purposeful - we direct our message at them. i.e. mailing list, rss feeds, PPC  Incidental - the traffic comes as a by product of something we do i.e. guest blogging, articles, products Incidental is the one that shows great promise as you are reaching out beyond your known visitors and mailing list into the mailing lists of others and putting your message in the way of ''on target'' traffic in other places. We find Accidental traffic is often very low grade because although someone may search for "Internet Marketing Advice" we have no way of knowing what advice they want, whether they are newbies or old hands or if they are just the competition checking their keywords. So we avoid basing our entire online marketing solely on Organic search results from Google. While you can make a killing ranking for keywords you know will convert, using blackhat and in even some cases greyhat techniques will likely backfire in the long term unless you know exactly what you are doing. When those at the top of the SERPS get knocked off because they are ''found out'', you want to be positioned as the relevant resource to take their place. Google are always refining their algorithm and it is far from perfect but it is always getting more sophisticated. Just remember one thing, Google does not owe you anything, not loyalty, not a salary, not even an apology if they cause you to go broke.
  14. 14. 15 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication Some SEO's love following everything Google does and learning all of the tricks and loopholes and if that is your thing, then great I know you will likely make a lot of money. Ask good SEO's though how much they have dedicated to being a SEO. If you are learning SEO basics just to learn the shortcuts, you are just cutting yourself short. SEO is an art and I have too much respect for it to say being good at it is easy. There are 3 main problems I see when it comes to unsophisticated SEO's attempting to manipulate the search engines. 1. They leave footprints everywhere. 2. They don't know the difference between good and bad SEO practice and worse than that, they don't know that they don't know. 3. They do not test and measure results with any form of deductive logic. I have been through countless SEO courses and very few of them are any good. Someone discovers a tactic that works (for now) and creates a course and sells it to the masses and then says 'I make my money from SEO''. No you make your money selling information products on tricks that may or may not work for getting search results. SEO is an intricate game like chess or poker and the only way to get good at a game is to practice. All the theory books will help but until you are in the trenches you will not learn the subtleties that will determine whether you are a the real deal or someone who dabbles. Like in most intricate games your moves need to be calculated, deliberate and timing is extremely important. Until you get a feel for these things, you run the risk of 'busting' or damaging your cause.
  15. 15. 16 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication Ironically by showing Google that they are irrelevant to us (not strictly true but we like them to believe it) they see us as important when people are talking about us and we are getting traffic without relying on them. The less desperate measures we make trying to attract Google the better we do on the rankings. Like chatting up a pretty girl, the more desperate you are the less likely you are to get a date! Looking at it logically is this attitude to traffic building not exactly the type of site Google want to reward? With the introduction of social media Google have shown an ever increasing importance of being on the pulse of what is relevant in the socialsphere. So let's reverse that, if it takes a lot of time, effort and resources to get any search positions then surely Google are not as relevant to your activities as you may think? The more influence you have in the Socialsphere the more Google HAS to take notice, by missing out relevant, socially important websites Google themselves downgrade their own relevance. Remember when Michael Jackson died and the news was all over the social media sites faster than Google could index pages relating to the news. Make your site important and relevant in the socialsphere and even small efforts at SEO should be rewarded on Google - depending on how stiff the competition is of course. That is why social activity (signals) is becoming such a big part of their algorithm. Most people now get their news from Facebook and Twitter rather than major news sites or Google themselves. The reason is simple, people are talking about it and sharing it as it happens. Even if you are not talking about it yourself, you will often learn about breaking news from your friends' comments on it.
  16. 16. 17 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication Create your content with this concept in mind, syndicate it all over the web (just like big media companies do) and get people talking about it and engaging with it and you have a foundation for playing the ''long game'' and will never have to rely only on Google for your traffic. They will reward you but your business is not built on the whims of, or at the mercy of Google. Imagine the scenario: You wake, Google has decided to change its algorithm and ALL your pages ranking for big traffic keywords are gone. All your effort has been wasted and all your income has dwindled to zero, you cannot run a business without long term stability. In the real world some niches are dry and creating engaging content is difficult and sometimes near impossible. Building backlinks the right way and having links from good quality and preferably relevant sites will always have it's place. Sometimes that is all you need but this Rolodex was created for Internet Marketers and we are working in an ever changing, exciting, dynamic and ''remarkable'' sector. In order to stand out we need to be ''remarkable''. That is what makes us relevant. Not only that we have a voice but others are also talking about us. b) Content Syndication Software There are many ways to syndicate content and many of the underutilized social sharing sites can provide an enormous amount of traffic. Yes you will also get the quality backlinks but as we have stated we prefer to target users and user engagement. By targeting our audience we go directly after the people we want to visit our sites.
  17. 17. 18 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication The trick is to create content that can go viral or at the very least is worthy of being shared. For that to happen the quality of the content has to be excellent. That is a given but what needs to be considered is that the more places you submit your content to, the more potential exposure your content has. So how do we save time and money and syndicate our content all over the web quickly and easily? Well the answer is simple, we use automated tools. Most of the tools out there are used primarily for backlinks and while backlinks are always welcome, the users on the social networks are what, or rather who we target. It creates a snowball effect when just a few people share something we have put out there. So what is the best tool to use? There are a few things to consider here, cost, ease of use and pure processing power. The big Daddy of content syndication and backlinking still is and has been for a long time SE Nuke X. I cannot recommend this product highly enough however we do not use it in our business. What....? That's right you read correctly. The functionality is superb but it also comes with a pretty hefty monthly price tag and the minor areas where it's functionality stands out is just not worth the price for us. So in the interest of finding the balance between cost and performance, we have found an alternative which does just as good a job for content syndication but is less than half the price.
  18. 18. 19 Visit Our Website at Chapter 1- Content Syndication Let me introduce you to one of our favourite marketing tools: Magic Submitter This is no toy and there is some serious horsepower under the hood of this tool but most importantly for us is it delivers when it comes to content syndication. It is easy to use and there is a reason why it has been a bestseller for a long time now. It allows you to syndicate your content to most of the places we have listed in this rolodex and it even allows you to add your own. It is very user friendly and the best part is you can trial it for a month for a mere $4.95. This tool has made us money rather than cost us money like so many others. We highly recommend it!!!

  71. 71. 72 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Hosting and Basic Internet Marketing Tools – Cheap domain registration with an easy to use control panel for managing all of your domains. This is the only domain name registrar we tend to use. Go Daddy is the other well known alternative however there have been instances of them locking people out of their accounts for suspected dodgy behaviour. There has been talk that they suspend first and ask questions later. Are the stories true? We can't say for sure but where there is smoke...We prefer not to take unnecessary risks in our business and have never had any problems with Namecheap. Hostgator - For cheap and reliable hosting, you can't go wrong with Hostgator. We have pushed shared hosts to the limit and Hostgator stood out as reliable and fast. There are better VPS and Dedicated Server providers out there but for cheap and cheerful shared hosting, this is your pick. Use Coupon code: 1CENTWORKS To get your first months hosting for 1c. Click Here to sign up and use that coupon code.
  72. 72. 73 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire – Blue Host is the only other shared host we use at the moment. They are very reliable, fast and easy to use. IMPORTANT!!! DO NOT take chances with dodgy hosting companies. Anyone who has had trouble with hosting companies can attest that there is nothing more disruptive and frustrating. It could literally destroy your business. Some aspects of business are out of our control and we have to use 3rd party providers. Make sure you make a wise informed decision and under no circumstances should you ever use free hosting. Cut costs elsewhere if you have to but not on hosting. VPS and Dedicated Servers: Liquid Web: This is a great option for VPS and Dedicated Servers. Their support is amazing and we have never had any complaints with them at all. When you don't have any issues with a hosting company you stick with them for good reason. Auto Responders: – This is by far our favourite autoresponder. Get Response is very similar and a perfectly good alternative but we have always and probably will always use Aweber. Get Response - The next in line of reliable and flexible autoresponders. While we have openly stated that Aweber is our preferred choice, many IM'ers will choose Get response as their preferred provider so if you are on the fence, compare the features. They are largely the same but there may be a minor feature that will sway you towards one or the other.
  73. 73. 74 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Go To Webinar– Unless you have been living in a cave for the last few years, you already know just how valuable webinars can be. This is the standard webinar hosting program amongst IM'ers. Amazon S3 – The Amazon Simple Storage Service. The fact that you can host large files, video's etc and never have to worry about bandwidth problems makes this a must have for any serious netpreneur. It is especially useful during product launches where exceeding bandwidth is a real problem. Having lauded Amazon S3, let's have a look at one of it's weaker points and yes this one is a biggie. Amazon buckets are not always secure meaning that anyone with only a hint of tech knowhow can access and download your material for free. Of course it's not free for you because Amazon charges on a usage basis. It is vital that you ensure that all of your ''buckets'' are secure. Click Here for instructions on how to do this. It's probably worth contacting Amazon too just to make sure everything is in order. – A Free service that notifies you if your sites ever go down. FileZilla – Free FTP software. Consistently updated and works perfectly every time. – A Free online conversion tool that allows you to convert nearly unlimited types of media file formats, including documents, images, audio, videos, etc.
  74. 74. 75 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Analytics and Conversion Optimisation Google Analytics – This is the obvious choice for most webmasters. It give's you almost all of the data you could ask for and more. Grey and Black hat SEO's have done tests using analytics on sites that have been 'manipulated' fairly obviously with SEO and although the data is not something that anyone can prove categorically, there does seem to be a trend that Google slaps sites faster when they are using Google Analytics. We don't recommend black hat tactics but if you are doing something you would rather let Google find out about rather than handing them the back door key there is an alternative: Clicky Analytics - Clicky is very similar to Google Analytics and you really lose no information by using this service. A free account is limited to the last 30 days and 3000 daily page views but it's fairly cheap and if you want to be on the cautious side of Google, this is the answer to analysis of your website. Adtrackz Gold – This in our opinion is an essential tool. It allows you to create tracking links to see exactly which traffic sources are sending you the most visitors, subscribers, and sales. It provides an additional layer of very important data that’s not easily tracked in Google Analytics. This one is a must- have if you want to scale your business to six-figures and beyond. Google Website Optimizer – Best free tool online for creating A/B split tests. Like everything online it does have a learning curve. But this is definitely one of the best tools for split-testing sales letters, squeeze pages, headlines, and more. Google Webmaster Tools - This is another great set of tools by Google. It can help you get your site indexed, upload sitemaps, diagnose problems, give you some insight into your backlinks and much more.
  75. 75. 76 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Visual Website Optimizer - Visual Website Optimizer is an easy to use A/B testing tool featuring point-and-click test designer and WYSIWYG editor. Features include heat maps to see how your visitors are engaging with your site, behavioural targeting, revenue tracking and more. – This is definitely one of our favourites. You can actually watch visitor recordings to see exactly how they moved through your site. This data is priceless and when you see the price of this service it will be a no- brainer. AB Tests – This is an absolute gem of a site. It's a community based site where people exchange data on their recent split testing results. If you want to see what works and learn as much as you can from other people's mistakes this is a must visit website. Spy Bar - This is an amazing little tool. It's a browser plugin that will give you all sorts of data on any wordpress website you visit. See a theme you like, it will tell you what it is. Wondering what plugins your competitors are using to perform certain tasks? Yup it will list them for you. Amazing little time saver.
  76. 76. 77 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Keyword Research Market Samurai - This tool has been our primary keyword research for ages and is ever reliable. It provides more details on keywords than most others and while a new user could be overwhelmed by the amount of data, this is actually a very easy tool to use and the training videos are excellent. You will be a master in no time. A must have tool. A great feature is that you can also use it to track your rankings. Keyword Suggestion - We admit Market Samurai is our favourite however it does use the Google keyword tool to pull keywords before it crunches the data. So for variety we like to also use a tool that uses Google Instant to draw it's data from. So if you typed a word into Google it will give you suggestions based on what people are heavily searching. This tool will extract these keyword phrases so you get great keywords AND some great ideas for blog posts. Get it while it's still cheap!!!
  77. 77. 78 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Creating Your Own Video's Easily Animoto - If you have never made videos before, you won't believe how quick and easy it is to create them. There is a free version which does come with branding and limitations however it is still very usable. One True Media - This essentially does the same thing as Animoto, however the usability, speed and quality is slightly below the standard of Animoto. Having said that it is very cheap and definitely worth considering. You can still make very decent videos with this little tool. Stupeflix - This is another tool that comes highly recommended. It apparently creates beautiful videos and is easy to use. EZ Vid - This is a free alternative to Animoto and One True Media. It comes with a lot of praise and high recommendations but to be honest we cannot vouch for them at this time as we still use (and probably will continue to use) Animoto. Camstudio - is able to record all screen and audio activity on your computer and create industry-standard AVI video files and using its built-in SWF Producer can turn those AVIs into lean, mean, bandwidth-friendly Streaming Flash videos. The best part is although it's limited, it is also free. Camtasia Studios - More than a simple screen recorder, Camtasia helps you create professional videos easily. Use Camtasia to record on-screen activity, customize and edit content, add interactive elements, and share your videos with anyone, on nearly any device. This is the big daddy of screen capture and video making software. It's a must have for any Internet Marketer especially if you are creating training or sales video's for your subscribers.
  78. 78. 79 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire ***Amazing Software for Video Marketers*** Simple Video Pro 2.0 - At the time of writing this Rolodex version 2.0 has not yet been released, however this is not going to stop us from recommending it based on how amazing version one was. It allows you to embed calls to action, payment and social buttons and lots more right in your video. Not only does this look extremely professional but it also increases conversions like nothing else. A must have tool and we are eagerly awaiting the updated version. Payment Processors Clickbank –allows you to accept payments via credit card and PayPal and it has a built-in affiliate program. One of the best parts about Clickbank is they will pay your affiliates every 2 weeks so you don’t have to worry about sending out checks or doing mass PayPal payments. The processing fee is on the high side but the simplicity of the affiliate program, often offsets this for us. A Ninja Trick that should be Common Sense but generally isn't: If you are looking at selling your program/product through affiliates, make sure that you do everything for them. Picture this - a struggling affiliate is likely to be writing blog posts, creating custom banners, scratching around for a sale (for you as well as them) etc.
  79. 79. 80 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire While you appreciate their efforts and these people are great to have on your side a super affiliate is going to be focussed on building their list and their traffic stream, they will not be doing your job for you and you will not even be aware that you have missed a major opportunity when they decide to give your product a skip because they can't easily find email swipes, banners, links, pre-written blog posts and anything else they might need to make the decision to promote your product an easy one. These things are simple to do within Clickbank and that is why so many people choose them. PayPal – We use Paypal for some of our niche products mainly because of the simplicity of the setup and the lower processing fee. You can also sign up for Website Payments Pro – which allows you to accept payments via PayPal and by credit card. Paypal does have some limitations on which countries can use their services so check that out if you are targeting non-western countries. PowerPay - You can also accept credit cards by setting up a merchant account. One of the most trusted and reliable merchant account companies is Power Pay. They have an understanding of e-commerce and internet marketing.
  80. 80. 81 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Alternatives : These are Merchant accounts and Payment Processors we have never used, so do some due diligence before using them. See what features you need and which is the best fit and maybe look at some customer reviews before making a final decision. Authorize 2 Checkout Pay Dot Com World Pay Other Payment Processors : The Payment Processors listed below are usually associated with all sorts of programs, including Multi Level Marketing, High Yield Investment Programs and Ponzi Schemes etc. It does not mean that they are involved directly with these schemes but they have them as clients. Obviously not all of these programs are legal and as a result we believe these PP's could go down in a massive lawsuit at any given time. You may already know about Liberty Reserve being shut down however they were the PP with the worst reputation out of all of these types of PP's . We have used these before and they have been absolutely fine but that does not mean it will always be the case. Solid Trust Pay Ego Pay Payza - Currently not available in the UK OK Pay Perfect Money
  81. 81. 82 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Private Label Rights Many successful Internet marketing businesses have been built off the back of PLR. While we generally prefer to create our own content, there are definitely times when a good PLR package comes in handy. You don't have to be an expert on the topic to be a leader in the niche thanks to some of the quality resources we have provided below: ID PLR - Great range of articles, videos and software. – Some of the best Internet Marketing PLR content online. – High-quality PLR that includes article bundles, auto responder bundles, and reports. – Very High-quality PLR articles & reports. – Exclusive PLR rights to some of Jimmy D.

  82. 82. 83 Visit Our Website at Chapter 2- Building and Operating Your Online Empire Shopping Carts For anyone who has compared different shopping cart solutions, one of the first things you realize is that there are pros and cons to every option.

Here’s a quick overview of the top shopping cart solutions online: Clickbank –Clickbank is actually a payment processor and shopping cart all built into one. The biggest benefit of Clickbank is simply ease of use. Clickbank does unfortunately have a high processing fee (7.5% plus $1 on every sale).

It’s one of the most popular platforms for selling information products or services online, with many of the world’s top online gurus using it to run their businesses.

The framework to scale your business within this system is second to none. It's not cheap and it's not the easiest to work but it is damn powerful. Nanacast – Has many of the same features as InfusionSoft however it is easier to use and does not have nearly the same price tag. Nanacast has one- click upsells, downsells, , dime sales, fire sales, membership site management and much more. If Infusionsoft is not within budget, this is a must.
