In addition to that Market Samurai will find affiliate offers for you to promote, find the highest ranking web pages in real-time, find & publish content domain names and lots more.

Long Tail Pro & Platinum will find you long tail keywords which are easier to rank for keywords. This software has some of the features contained in Market Samurai and individual users like to compare notes. Either way it's another tool I use and one for you to have a look at.
Spin Re-Writer is used in conjunction with Spin Distribute. The software spins your content in such a way to create unique articles for distribution to the blog networks. In addition to that, Spin Re-Writer can quickly create good articles for your blogs, add YouTube videos and upload content to your website from the central interface using the WordPress plugin saving you time.
Spin Distribute will submit your article automatically to the article directories giving you 800 backlinks per article. Using Spin Re-Writer you can submit hundreds of unique articles around the web with a call to action of your choice. That's backlinks to your blog pages, opt-in and sales pages.
If your tactic to grow your business is article marketing and blogging then Spin Distribute used in conjunction with Spin Re-Writer is essential.
With any SEO technique, social interaction is a big serving of brownie points in the eyes of Google. Facebook likes, shares re-tweets are all votes for your web pages. Social ADR creates social interaction in a natural way increasing your social engagement of your content and boosting your search engine rankings.
Onlywire allows you to submit your content to 50 social networks at once. The automation tool will submit new website content automatically should you choose to do that. You can manage comments from the Onlywire dashboard, and comprehensive analytics means that you can check performance at a glance.

Aweber will allow you to build a database of email subscribers, essential to build any type of Internet business. Create unlimited email lists & build your sales funnels by automating follow-up email messages, segment your list as appropriate and develop relationships with your subscribers depending on their habits with the list automation.
Aweber is a tool that every Internet business needs.

If you use Aweber, then AWPro Tools will enhance your email marketing into the professional marketer arena.
Although I've added MLSP in the list building section, MLSP is frankly the Swiss Army knife of resources for building an Internet business. It's primary goal is to help people get more qualified leads and cash in the bank.
Web Sites & Pages
The website platform that the majority of professionals use is WordPress, simply because the majority of the useful software and programs integrate seamlessly with WordPress, as do the following two recommendations:
With Leadpages you can quickly and easily publish great looking funnel pages of all types from the templates library. Pages include opt-in pages, sales pages, webinar pages in fact as many different pages you can think of. In addition to that, Leadpages can generate Leadboxes, a seamless way to get more subscribers from your website pages and posts, while the Lead digits and Lead links, are worthy of a click to the site to learn more.
Leadpages is one of the primary tools for many professional marketers including myself.
If you look around the Internet you'll find that a lot of established and well-known brands use Optimize Press for their pages. Optimize Press is a WordPress template and allows the user to create a variety of funnel pages in a similar way to Leadpages, however the advantage I feel with Optimize Press is that all the pages can be build from scratch with a simple ‘drag and drop'. Optimize Press also has a membership site platform included which is easy to use and works effectively for securing content in a tiered membership.
