I often get asked what resources I use in my affiliate marketing business. So, I decided to create one page that gives you my top affiliate marketing software and resources that I actually use on a daily basis. Some of these tools and resources cost money and some are free to use. The software and resources listed on this page help me generate a profitable affiliate marketing business online in addition to the recommended training associated with them.
Feel free to comment below if you have any questions as to how I use them and also feel free to tell me what resources you use and let’s discuss. So, without further ado, let’s dive in, shall we?
Wealthy Affiliate – Training and Website Hosting
If you have been reading my blog regularly, it is most likely no surprise to you that I am a big fan of Wealthy Affiliate for a variety of reasons. First of all the Wealthy Affiliate platform is where I initially learned how to build a successful affiliate marketing business. Their no fluff approach to teaching you step by step how to earn a full or part-time income online is simply the best in the industry today.
The next reason is that their website builder is extremely easy to use and as a premium plus member, I am able to create many websites in many niches. In fact, you can create a fully hosted website in less than one minute.
I also like the Wealthy Affiliate hosting. It is extremely an extremely robust hosting platform and the site speed is the top in the hosting industry.
Another HUGE advantage to belonging to Wealthy Affiliate is their community support. They have over 2 million members in the community and access to coaching and immediate help is unparalleled in the online world.
There is simply not enough room on this page to list all the features and benefits of the Wealthy Affiliate Platform, so my suggesting is to take a look at my detailed Wealthy Affiliate Review here.
Jaaxy – Keyword and Research Platform
Affiliate Marketing, as many of you know, starts with a great website or blog. It is the foundation of your business. The next building block of this foundation is Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and niche specific research. Jaazy is the very foundation of both of these items. There is more to it, of course, than just coming up with the right keywords, which is what Jaaxy does best, but there is also:
- competition analysis,
- niche research,
- search history and analysis,
- finding great affiliate programs,
- and brainstorming.
All of these attributes and more are available from the Jaaxy platform and much, much more. I use Jaaxy all the time. I have an enterprise account, and I really don’t go a day without using this amazing research tool.
To get all the details of how Jaaxy works and the features and benefits, read my detailed Jaxxy review here.
Aweber – Email Marketing & Contact Management
Another very important aspect of my business is email marketing and connecting with my prospects and associates. Aweber is definitely the state of the art when it comes to Email Marketing and contact management. It is the platform and tool used by the serious marketing both from the online and offline world. They have been around since the late 90s and know what they are doing. Their email deliverability is the best in the industry and their platform includes:
- Email marketing
- Landing pages
- Beautiful Sign up forms
- Awesome online and chat support
You get smart designer email templates, drag and drop landing page and customer email page creators, a pre-built template library, campaign automation, AMP for email and much, much more. One nice thing about Aweber is you can try it out for free for up to 500 subscribers. For more information about all of what Aweber has to offer go to the Aweber Website Here.
Canva – Image Creator
Canva is the most amazing image creator tool I have ever worked with. Just about every image on my website was built through the Canva tool. There is a free version and a paid version. I have been using the free version for years and have just recently upgraded to the paid version, mainly because of the larger selection of images and pictures you can use to add to your images. Plus, with the pro version, you can create images without a background or a transparent background. That feature does come in handy at times.
The thing I like about Canva is you can use an image or logo and then customize it to add other graphics as well as text. So, if you ever wondered how marketing add text inside of a common logo, that is how they most likely are doing it. It is much more cost effective to use Canva than the more expensive stock image platforms. You don’t have to purchase expensive stock images when you can simply create your own that are of the same quality or even better because you can customize them.
They have a lot of templates available in their library for creating images on other platforms like YouTube, Facebook, Pinterest, and a host of others. The Pinterst templates alone are worth using Canva for. I simply love using their preformed Pinterest video templates for creating Pinterest Pins that pop.

The four top affiliate marketing software and resources I mentioned above are the main resources I use on a continuous basis to supplement my business. There are a few more, but these are the main ones I used practically on a daily basis. When it comes to affiliate training, email marketing, image creation and keyword research, you will always need these resources. So, when it comes to choosing software for these necessary functions, you want to use the platforms that are proven to work and work well consistently.
I have used all of these tools and resources for a very long time and have to say I will never give them up. They will always be in my affiliate marketing tool box.
