Small Business Marketing Tools and Resources

I’m often asked for recommendations of different marketing tools and service providers, so I figured, why not create a running list here? Everything on this page is hyper-linked, so click what you want and you’ll be taken directly to the corresponding website.

Recommended Marketing Tools and Resources for Small Business

Now, of course there are tons of resources out there. This is MY List. This is the stuff I use or have used. Note: In the spirit of full disclosure, many of the links on this page are affiliate links, which means I may get a commission if you decide to purchase anything from this page. I only recommend products and systems that I use and love myself. I actually use the products I recommend!

Tailwind Pinterest Scheduler

Web Host and/or Domain Name

Social Pilot
Social Pilot is what I use EVERY SINGLE DAY for social media scheduling + analytics.

Video / Livestreaming Software and Equipment

    • Streamyard (livestreaming and recording in general)
    • TubeBuddy (excellent analytics for any Youtube video)
    • Ringlight (small and mighty, clip to your desk AND holds your phone)
    • Microphone (I see why gamers love it)
    • Webcam (your built in webcam has nothing on this one, I see why it’s the gamers choice)

Project Management

Teamwork Projects

Business Management & Client Workflow

Get the Dubsado business management software.

3D eCover Graphics

Workbook - Your Starter Guide to Making Money With Memberships
Stack of paperback books made with eCover Authority.

Again here, I gave a SINGLE recommendation. I have used eCover Authority for several years now, and it is by far THE most affordable way to create 3D graphics.

You know how you usually have to go on Fiverr to get a 3D cover made, or you pay per pic on something like a to turn your image into a 3D cover? Well, you will never need to do that again!

You can either upload a graphic, or create a graphic on the platform itself, then select which 3D cover you want. Create 3D images of:

  • standing paperbacks
  • ipad and iphone screens
  • binders
  • laptops
  • spiral books
  • TVs, CDs, DVDs, and more…

The sales page does not do this product justice.

Best investment ever!
