It was not easy to narrow it down to 6 but if I had to pick, these are the absolute top 6 ones that I would choose and that my business couldn’t run without at the moment ;).

Let’s dive straight into it. Here’s my software list:

(1) Clickfunnels = #1 Landing Page Builder for 2019

  • Why Clickfunnels? My team and I have helped our clients create multiple 5 and 6-figure funnels by using CF (+ we are using it for our own funnels as well). Without a landing page or simple email opt in page, you’ve got no business online, you’ve got a hobby. To truly start creating a profitable business, you need to focus on building up your email list. Your money is in your list.
    • Clickfunnels makes it super easy to not only build up an email list but profit from it through a variety of funnels you can create with it. Not only that, I trust in the founders Russell Brunson and Todd Dickerson. I haven’t seen anyone innovate this fast when it comes to a landing page software like these two and their team.
  • Key growth benefits:
    1. Landing page builder for generating email leads & selling your products online (both physical and digital).
    2. You can create long-form sales letters, short-form video sales pages, eCommerce product pages, Webinar presentations, etc.
    3. Also, built affiliate presell pages.
    4. Helpful pre-created & designed templates that will help with engagement and conversions.
    5. Mobile- and tablet-optimization functionality of all pages.
    6. Integrated shopping cart builder.
    7. Integrated affiliate program.
    8. Integrated full on email marketing software.
    9. It’s results-oriented. They want you to make money vs just build pretty pages and put them on the web.
    10. And much, much more.

(2) SEMRush. = For supercharging the virality of your content to increase traffic and revenue

  • Why SEMRush? It’s not enough to just create content for the sake of creating content. To experience real, measurable momentum when it comes to your content marketing – you need to understand and look at the numbers. A business owner always knows his numbers.
  • Key growth benefits:
    1. “It’s not just an SEO tool.”
    2. Uncover your competitors’ organic search, paid, content, PR, and social media strategies
    3. Find new keyword opportunities for your blog or target your competitor’s most successful keywords.
    4. Get a clear idea on how you can improve your url’s positioning online.
    5. Offers you a great backlink analysis and more.
    6. And much more.

(3) WeConnect (Linkedin): The single best software out there at the moment to supercharge the growth of your Linkedin account, impact and lead generation.

What the We-Connect dashboard looks like from a member of my team.
  • Why WeConnect? There are not that many automation and growth tools available yet for Linkedin. However, this one is a favorite among my clients and my own team. It allows us to connect, engage and grow our existing Linkedin audience 10x faster AND on autopilot (than if you’d invest hours upon hours of work into your Linkedin content).
  • KEY growth benefits:
    1. It allows you to find your precise ideal clients/customers on Linkedin and send personalized bulk 1:1 invites, compliant with Linkedin policies.
    2. You can create so-called ‘Linkedin bot message sequences’ and send automated and personalized messages to your Linkedin audience.
    3. When someone accepts your Linkedin request, you can send personalized follow-up messages, getting to know your new connections even better.
    4. Automate your LinkedIn profile visits and skill endorsements. Motivate people to visit your profile back.
    5. Like in a CRM ( ), you can sort potential leads and file away messages plus add notes. Super helpful for staying organized.
    6. And much more.

(4) TubeBuddy (Youtube): Youtube certified, FREE browser extension that integrates directly into your Youtube to help you manage your channel with ease.

  • Why TubeBuddy? More than 300 hours of video are uploaded to YouTube every minute. That’s a lot of competition even considering the 1.3 billion people that use the platform regularly.
    • It’s not enough to just produce quality videos. You need data and research to make sure you’re producing the RIGHT videos that will rank.
  • KEY growth benefits:
    1. My personal favorite features are the amazing Keyword Research Tool, the Tag List, Tag Explorer and Suggested Tags.
    2. It’s also got A/B testing for your videos, best times to publish suggestions for your channel, it lets you automatically publish to FB and more…
    3. It has an easy-to-use thumbnail creator and you can save thumbnails for future use.
    4. A Best Practices Checklist for making sure you optimize your video for traffic before clicking that ‘publish’ button.
    5. After uploading a video, it has a Share Tracker feature to make sure you are promoting your video on as many social networks as possible.
    6. And much more. = Seriously the best growth hacking tool for anyone wanting to utilize Youtube to gain more eyeballs on their business and brand.

(5) ViralLoop: The digital word-of-mouth supercharge software

  • Why ViralLoop? Anything and everything that can give you an edge during the launch of a new product (or re-launch of an old one) is awesome. With ViralLoops you can utilize the traditional ‘word of mouth’ power and translate this online.
  • KEY growth benefits:
    1. Create referral campaigns so that when someone on social media refers your FILL-IN-THE-BLANK (physical product, eBook, membership program, software, course, video, etc.), they get a special gift/coupon/bonus/etc. If their friend takes them up on the referral.
    2. Add a gamification element to your referral campaigns.
    3. Recruit superfans or brand ambassadors for your product(s).
    4. Create an eCommerce loyalty program.
    5. Organize a Giveaway that goes viral.

(6) AdBeat: A powerful paid advertising spy tool.

  • Why AdBeat? An Omni-channel approach to advertising is KEY nowadays. You want to not only ever focus on 1 platform but you want to diversify your efforts and where you get your leads/traffic from. Now Facebook has a great free native tool you can use to spy on top advertisers and ads and that is: its own Facebook Ads Library.
    • However, in order to analyze display ads, AdBeat is the Queen! What is it? It is an online marketing SPY tool that allows you to uncover any advertiser’s ad strategy. AdBeat’s focus is on display advertising, not search engine advertising. The tool covers 26 different countries, 90+ ad networks and five different device types (Desktop, iPhone, iPad, Android, Android Tablet).
  • KEY growth benefits:
    1. Uncovers where a specific advertiser runs his/her ads exactly.
    2. Find out an advertiser’s or competitor’s top ads.
    3. Uncover competitors in your industry and market.

  • Why ActiveCampaign? My team and I mainly use the built-in email marketing software from Clickfunnels. However, we also use ActiveCampaign and a lot of our clients use it too that want to keep their software budget at a certain price point. ActiveCampaign is a premier email marketing software, regardless of if you have 100 people on your list or 100,000 and more. Its usability will grow with you and your list.
