Before you can begin building anything in life, you need tools. And the same is true if you’re building your affiliate marketing career.
In this post, I will get you set up with all the best affiliate marketing tools you need to get started.
The important thing to remember here is that these are tools that you will need when you’re just starting out, maybe when your business grows you might need more tools but for now with these tools, you will be fine.
Best Affiliate Marketing Tools
These are the basic affiliate marketing tools you will need to run your business, in this list, I included the tools that I think are essential to your business, as your business grows your affiliate marketing tools arsenal will increase.
To run a successful affiliate marketing business you will need to have a domain name, a domain name is your address online, for example, unparalleledfreedom.com is my domain name.
You can use your domain name to redirect people to your squeeze page, you can install a blog on it, you can create an email address, this will be the center hub of your business.
You will need at least one domain name to run your affiliate marketing business and my highest recommendation will be Namecheap as they are the best domain registrar on the web.
When you create content and squeeze pages online you will need to save those files somewhere, here is when hosting companies comes in.
A hosting company is a company that will lend you space online to host your content and files, the good news is that these companies will not charge you a fortune and sometimes you can even start for free.
When it comes to hosting there are a lot of opinions online, I tried and tested most of the major web hosting companies, and for me, WPXhosting is the best web hosting company.
They offer you a free SSL certificate for all of your websites, and they will move your websites from any hosting company to theirs for free.
If you have a problem on your website they will fix it for free, and they respond to your inquiries in less than 5 seconds, I can’t recommend them more.
But I know that if you’re just starting out it can be a little bit expensive (it is $24.95 per month), so my second recommendation is Cloudways as you can pay just $10 per month and host more websites.
To run a successive online business as an affiliate, you will need to build some special pages, these can be landing/squeeze pages, pre-sales pages, and funnels.
There are many great page builders out there some of them are free some of them are very expensive, for me, the page builder I use is thrive themes, it is cheap, and I can build unlimited pages.
Every person who is making money online has one thing in common an email list. As an affiliate marketer, you will need to collect some data from your prospects, especially their email, and then send them some emails with tips and recommendations of affiliate products and the software that can help you to do all that is called an autoresponder.
So my autoresponder recommendations will be
So that is it, those are in my opinion the best affiliate marketing tools you can use to start and grow your online business.

Google Work Space
In order to send emails you need to create a business email, since I use Gmail, I use Google Work Space to create a professional email, when I say professional email I mean email that I can send from my own server, for example, email@example.com.
