Dear Business Professionals,
The key to success in any improvement or innovation strategy is to use tools that are cost effective yet deliver huge value. The following is a list of software and other tools that I use every day.

Thrive Content Builder -- If your time is valuable and you use WordPress, you owe it to yourself to try this. I have been using WordPress (poorly) for a while, but creating great pages has always eluded me. But now, after seeing what this new "visual editor" plugin does, I can never go back to the "normal" WordPress editor. It is really the simplest, most visual and most straight-forward way to build WordPress pages and layouts (click on this link for a demo video).
You can save massive amounts of time and frustration with a "live" editor like this. And I love this tool because it does not just replace the boring and clumsy old WordPress editor, it is also a whole sales-page-building suite!
If you build marketing pages and landing pages, this thing is brilliant!
Thrive Themes -- I have seen plenty of themes with promise and even bought many. But I have always been disappointed in them -- either they were hard to install or configure properly, they lacked customization or just generally fell short of all the hype and the beautiful (and useless) demos.
If you want themes that are built to blog AND convert, with simple built-in templates for landing and sales pages, then you should look seriously at Thrive Themes. (Link available soon).
This is a Thrive Theme, and even though I just converted to using it, I am already quite happy with it. You will be as well.
Market Samurai -- I was so impressed by this must-have software that I consider it one of the top recommendations I can offer.
Look, in today's hyper-connected world, everyone with a business website is in fact an "internet marketer." NOTHING should ever be done without referencing the specific targeted keyword phrases that will make you successful -- no blog post, no product, program or service offering, no invitation to brick-and-mortar businesses ...
Experienced internet marketing veterans and first-time "newbies" are using the "top secret" Market Samurai software to easily capture front-page rankings, traffic and sales. You can download it for FREE and try it out for yourself here.
You know that the secret to quick, profitable, high-traffic Google rankings is finding the "right" targeted keyword phrases that you can incorporate organically into your site ... and this tool will help you do just that ... just like it is doing it for hundreds of thousands of other results-driven internet marketers who are using it already.
With Market Samurai, you can follow the *Golden Rules of SEO*. Imagine being able to:
- Pick RELEVANT keyword phrases that ATTRACT TRAFFIC, and avoid 90% of all keyword phrases that will NOT attract traffic.
- Pick keyword phrases that have COMMERCIAL VALUE, and avoid all of the unprofitable, useless-traffic keywords.
- Pick keyword phrases with LOW LEVELS OF COMPETITION -- avoid keyword phrases that give you have no chance to get front-page Google rankings.
Only around 1% of all keyword phrases fit within the Golden Rules!
If you EVER want to drive free search engine traffic to your website, then without Market Samurai you are playing "SEO Roulette" with the odds stacked against you!
Do not get left behind by those that took action while you sit there and wonder. Right now, as I write this, your competitors may be snapping up easy, low-competition keyword phrases with good traffic and good profit potential in YOUR market. This is one tool novice and expert alike will use almost daily -- and its easy-to-use interface, its advanced features and its low price (with no hidden subscription fees) make it a true "no-brainer."
