Location Independent Tools:
Once you’ve got your domain and hosting setup, there are a few tools you’ll need to start making serious money. Now depending on the model you’ve chosen the tools you personally need will vary.
(See my Start Here Page for video’s on the main location independent models).
I’ll start with a list of the tools everyone needs:
- WordPress (CMS): You need a website platform that is easy to update, that controls the back end of your business, adding content, adding video’s, adding podcasts, adding products, building your list etc. The easiest and most widely used platform is WordPress.

- Infusion Soft: Is a multi purpose platform. It provides you highly advanced email marketing, segmenting and launch sequencing capabilities. Plus on top of the email marketing Infusion also gives you a CRM, a merchant facility to sell your products,order forms and complete affiliate program management.

With LeadPages it is point and click easy and the pages look fantastic.

Podcasters Paradise: The next skill that you should learn no matter what model you’ve chosen is podcasting.
While the two skills mentioned above in my opinion are more important than any other skill they aren’t much good to you if you don’t have a large audience that knows, likes and trusts you.
The fastest way to do that right now is podcasting. iTunes is one of the largest audiences on the planet and at this very moment isn’t over crowded.
My mentor and good friend John Lee Dumas has created the best training program on podcasting in existence. If you want to get your podcast live fast, learn how to find guests, get exposure, get accepted into iTunes without hassle, and become a leading podcaster! Then Podcasters Paradise is your ticket!
