The Solopreneur Life Membership
I’ve spent the last few years researching and developing a new membership site that teaches people how to do what I do for a living… Basically, how to start and/or adjust your current business so that it can be run Solo (meaning without employees), and that’s also Portable (can be run from anywhere), Scalable (same amount of work for 1 or 100), and produces Passive Income (money while you’re not there).

Mailchimp I’ve used Mailchimp since day one and I’ve had no reason to seek a different service. The user interface couldn’t be easier to use. The reports are very good. Mailchimp is free, up to 2,000 subscribers and has the best delivery rates of them all.

Hootsuite; I would be lost without Hootsuite, a social-media dashboard that I use on my laptop and my iPhone. I love Hootsuite’s versatility. I use it to monitor Twitter in multiple ways: streams, lists, and search terms. I use it to monitor multiple Twitter accounts. And of course, I use Hootsuite to post. You can hook up your LinkedIn, Facebook, and Instagram accounts, too. I use the free version of Hootsuite and it meets my needs just fine.
Creating your own product is extremely time consuming, not to mention the need for customer service… But to sell someone else’s and get a commission for it, well that can be the golden ticket. The best affiliate network is the one that provides products and services that your customers want. In my experience, though, using only one affiliate network isn’t adequate.
ClickBank: One of the most popular and easiest affiliate platforms online… They work with beginners and experts, they pay the highest commissions, and you don’t have to have a website to use them…
Amazon Affiliates: Amazon Affiliates offers a low percentage per sale (4 to 6 percent), but the Amazon program is easy to use, offers a massive number of products, and people trust the platform. I’ve created, grown, and sold websites that were monetized solely with Amazon Associates. If I was allowed only one affiliate network, it would be Amazon.
CJ Affiliate (formerly named Commission Junction): This is a solid network. The user interface is excellent and it’s easy to get up and running quickly.
Shareasale: Shareasale is comparable to CJ Affiliate. The complaint I have with Shareasale is its antiquated website and worst-in-class user interface. Even the search function is maddening.
Why I Give Recommendations
The purpose of The Solopreneur Life is to provide you with resources that will help your business succeed. I appreciate when a trusted friend and/or colleague recommends products and services that will help me. Thus, it makes sense for me to offer recommendations at The Solopreneur Life. I know that my reputation is on the line when I make recommendations, so I offer only products and services that have helped my business.
Disclosure: some of the links below are affiliate links. This means I will earn a commission — at no additional cost to you — if you decide to purchase products or services via these links. I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they provide quality products and services.
