A couple of important notes: First, all of these are affiliate links. If you buy something, I get a small commission. That doesn’t cost you anything and it helps me keep Learning Revolution going for you. Second, some of these apply only to new customers. Sorry, not my decision.

You’re not still trusting your WordPress hosting to a cheap provider are you? If you are (I won’t tell), it’s really time to start treating your websites as a serious business asset and move to WP Engine (which I use for all my sites). Use the code cyberweek2021 to get 5 months FREE on any annual shared plan at WP Engine. Check out WP Engine >>

If you want to get serious about affiliate marketing (an often overlooked business model for expertise-based businesses), you will need a good way to manage your affiliate links – i.e., to shorten them and make them look nice, organize them, easily track results, etc. ThirstyAffiliates does this and a whole lot more. We’ve been using it on Learning Revolution for a long time. Thirsty will be offering big discounts and the opportunity to win a MacBook M1 14″ starting on November 26.

E-mail and Newsletter Tools
Tools to help you get into the inbox of your prospects and customers, engage successfully, and get results.
One of the highest value e-mail platforms (in our humble opinion) is offering 25 percent off the first three months for new customers. We like ActiveCampaign – and have been migrating our MailChimp accounts there – because it provide better reporting, MUCH better control over automation sequences, and it has a customer relationship management (CRM) built in. Very powerful. Check out ActiveCampaign >>
