Welcome to Incomeboy Resource section, a curated list of all the best blogging tools and websites that I strongly recommend for successfully building and optimizing your business.
I have personally tested every recommendation on this post. Many of these listed resources are extremely critical in running my business: I have a portfolio
Before moving forward with this amazing list, an important disclosure:
Some of the links mentioned below are affiliate links, which means that if you choose to make a purchase, I will earn a small commission. This commission comes at no additional cost to you, rather even if you decide to make the purchase by directly going to these product websites you will pay the same amount. Please understand, that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they have been extremely helpful and useful in building my business, not because of the small commission I make in case you decide to buy something. Please do not spend your money on these products, unless you feel you need them or that they will help you achieve your goal.
To help my visitors and add more value in your life, I have come up with a special offer only for incomeboy.com visitors. After you buy the hosting by clicking the links below, my team will set up your website FREE OF COST. Yes, all you have to do is send me an email at [email protected] and we will help you get your website up and running in no time. I love my visitors and this is the least that I can do for you :).

The first thing before starting a website is Domain name, right. The best place to register your Domain name is Godaddy.
Although if you are starting your first website then
So this way you can save some money and you only have to pay for hosting costs, which is very cheap for the first year
All of my 10+ websites and hundreds of my clients websites are hosted on Siteground. Why? They make it incredibly easy to get a new site up and running with their one-click automatic WordPress Blog installation.
I have tried and tested almost all hosting companies over the period of 7 years, be it godaddy, Bluehost, etc., but the real satisfaction and a smile on my face came when I shifted my website to Siteground. My website loading speed almost doubled and the traffic increased by 176% just by shifting to Siteground. That's the power of this amazing hosting.
You can host multiple websites on their Grow big plan (which, is affordable, the prices are best in the industry) so you don't need to pay more for hosting when you are ready to start another website. Almost all major and popular bloggers use Siteground and recommend this company to all.
I highly recommend using Siteground for
You will get an amazing hosting at just Rs 3,000 (I paid more than Rs 12,000 for the gogeek plan)
Additional features: Free domain, Free SSL certificate, Free dedicated IP, Free migration from other hosting, Super amazing customer support
If there is any other hosting after Siteground that I recommend or have websites hosted on, then that is Hostgator hosting.
The company already has huge name in the industry. The performance of their hosting is on par as of Siteground. You won't be disappointed. If Siteground is not your choice, then the only option you should consider is Hostgator hosting.
You will get all the features just like Siteground, it's just that Siteground is one step ahead in all parameters. But if
You will be surprised by the quality delivered by thrive themes. Being a WordPress developer myself, and also having built hundreds of
Today I have purchased almost all their products including, Thrive Content Builder, Thrive leads, Thrive Headline optimized and many more. But most importantly, I use their Theme: Rise thrives theme
This blog incomeboy.com use Rise thrive theme and this brings the biggest smile on my face. Packed with amazing features (makes so many extra plugins redundant), Lightweight, ultra fast, and many more features.
My Email Capture statistics increased by 95% once I moved on to Thrive Leads. Earlier
Packed with so many features that even you will be amazed by the quality of this plugin and will be willing be thinking of how come this plugin is so cheap compared to the value it
Email list is the most important asset for any blog or online business. Even an email list of 1,000 people can help you make more than $10,000 /annum (yes, i have dont it ). For me this investment of $67 is nothing compared to the returns
The best SEO tool on the internet right now. I cannot describe how much this tool has helped me get far in my career.
Most comprehensive data for keywords, backlinks
I can go on and on, if you are looking for one tool to handle all your SEO needs, without a second doubt take the free trial of 14 days on this product before making the decision to purchase
If any tool that comes near Ahrefs in terms of SEO then it is Semrush. The data is not as comprehensive as Ahrefs, but still the breadth of data and quality of results is at par
Although SEMrush is also used in PPC campaign and other ways, the choice is yours, you can try both of these SEO tools: Ahrefs and Semrush before purchasing the monthly membership for any one of them
Trust me without these SEO tools, getting big or building and online site will be extremely difficult.
Apart from Ahrefs and Semrush here is a list of all the other tools that will help you scale your online business. I use them daily and they have helped me a lot.
Although a paid tool, but this is by far the best social media management tool on the internet.
A little expensive and not for beginners, this tools store all your future posts and automatically schedule them according to your requirement
With features like categorization, Scheduling, Library and many more, this is the best social media management tool for advanced people who have experience with creating and managing multiple websites
This is the tool of choice for millions of newbie online bloggers or basic online website owners.
Another alternative is using Hootsuite, they also have a nice interface. But among buffer and hootsuite, you should go for the buffer
I have tested many companies, and honeslty almost all email marketing companies are good. So i wont state any favourites.
I personally use and also like Aweber. I like the simplicity and easy navigation and management.
Aweber gives a free trial till 500 email subscribers
For a beginner both Aweber or Mailchimp is fine. If you are looking for more advanced level of Email marketing with advanced segmenting, tagging, etc. Then check out Drip, Infusionsoft or Convertkit
I started my email marketing with mailchimp. It is simple and highly popular among beginners.
Also they offer upto 2000 members in their trial so that is an attarctive point/. But automation is for paid subscription
You can use either of aweber or Mailchimp, i have used both and both of them have given me good results.
My recommendation will be Aweber
