WordPress Hosting

I only create websites with WordPress and so only recommend hosting services that are optimised for WordPress hosting.

Wealthy Affiliate Hosting – Affordable Managed WordPress Hosting 

20i – Secure Managed WordPress Hosting at an affordable price.

WPX Hosting – Fast and secure WordPress hosting

SiteGround – One of the most recommended hosting services from top affiliate marketers.

WordPress Themes

Elegant themesIn my opinion the best premium WordPress theme provider. For a relatively small annual fee or one-time payment, you get over 80 premium themes and 9 premium plugins. I use the Extra theme for this website.

Email Marketing

MailChimpone of the best Autoresponders and comes with a fantastic set of marketing tools, however, they are strict with affiliate marketers. They do allow affiliate marketing but will suspend your account if you promote dodgy programs. 

Keyword Research Tools

I use a variety of keyword research tools, some of them are free and others are paid.

Free tools;

Ubersuggest – One of the best keyword research tools and still cannot believe its free, comes with a lot of features.

Keywords Everywhere – A good keyword research tool and completely free

Paid Keyword research tools

Keysearch.co – My top recommendation, especially for those who are on a tight budget, comes with a ton of features at a really affordable price.

Mangools – Provides a fantastic set of SEO tools at an affordable price, one of my top recommendations.

SerpStat – This is another excellent set of SEO tools, but is quite expensive, so keep that in mind. However, they do provide a free option for life with limited features.

Jaaxy – A really good keyword research tool that also provides a rank tracking service, quite expensive if you purchase it on its own, however, you can get it for free with a paid subscription of Wealthy Affiliate, which makes it a bargain.
