The purpose of this page is no other than the main purpose of Rebel Growth and that is to help you on your marketing efforts, I have put together a list of tools and resources that will greatly help you and your business.
The following are the top resources and tools I use to run my business and online marketing efforts, these include domain registration resources, web files hosting, marketing research tools, outsourcing tools and software that help me in different tasks. Also, just because you might already know about some of these tools, doesn’t make them less important. So pay close attention to the reason these are so crucial in my business.
Disclosure: Please know that some of the links on this page are affiliate links, which means that at no additional cost to you, I will make a commission if you decide to purchase. If you do, I thank you for it, for supporting me and my blog. Also, please know that I ONLY recommend tools that I personally use and trust, not because I would make a small commission if you decide to purchase. I truly believe that the key to speed your online business is on these tools, but only use them if you really believe they will help you.
Just like a website needs a domain, it also needs hosting. This is where your files will be stored and hosted. After you have a domain name, you need to point it to the place where your files will be, this is what Hostgator provides. They are also the company I recommend because of the level of authority and reliability they have. I know they will never let me down.
If you are planning on getting a hosting service with them you can use the coupon code “moneydiver” and it will save you 25% (note: I will also be granted a commission and you would be supporting my business to stay alive for which I would be infinitely grateful, I make this clarification so that you don’t feel sold or anything cheesy).
Rebel Growth and my other businesses are mainly websites in which I post a lot of articles, videos, podcasts etc. and websites need domain names (www.domainname.com) and domains must be registered with special companies like GoDaddy. You might have seen GoDaddy’s Super Bowl or Nascar ads, that’s how big they are, thus they are the one company I recommend for getting a domain name. They have a huge list of tutorials that make everything super easy and have a high quality support service.
The mighty Smartduu is a perfect solution for your Website personalization. It is also the difference between having an ordinary website, or an extremely intelligent website. All Smartduu themes will allow you to display different versions of your blog or website to different types of audiences.
I take research very seriously as a part of my marketing strategy. I have to approaches for selecting what I write or create content about, one is by request of my audience and the other is by researching what’s hot and what can be ranked in search engines. This is why I use Market Samurai every day while working.
Google Keyword Planner
This used to be called “Keyword Tool” and you can find it inside your Google Adwords account. It’s a magnificent tool to find out how many searches does any term, word or phrase gets monthly in Google, so that you can chose your keywords foryour SEO campaigns and efforts, you can also estimate the amount of traffic you could get to your site if you were to advertise in Google Adwords.
Aweber is the tool I use to manage my email marketing campaigns; this is how I communicate with my audience and how I let everyone know about new content, tips, videos, post etc.
I would say this is the tool I use most, because I’m creating new content every day and thus communicating it to my followers. It also has a fantastic feature called “auto-responder” which lets you set up a series of emails that get automatically sent whenever someone subscribes to you, this is good because you can establish welcome emails and downloadable free content that your followers receive instantly.
This is by far, my favourite resource, its free and I simply love it with passion.
WordPress is software to manage content and create websites, after you get your domain and hosting, you can simply install WordPress with the click of a button, then install WordPress themes and plugins and customize your website to your liking. The possibilities are endless really. You can use free themes, premium themes or custom made themes.
It allows you to create amazing looking blogs and websites in minutes, and again, it’s free!

After your business is growing and in the right path, you know all the tasks, processes, tips and tricks. You might want to start outsourcing to save some time to either spend in your life however you want or to focus on other tasks that are more intellectual and less mechanical in your business, like brainstorming and crafting innovation.
For this I use freelancer.com which is a website that allows you to hire any freelancers in any field. You can find anything from writers to designers, virtual assistants or programmers.
