My List of Trusted and Recommended Resources
Nearly every conversation I have with clients, I get asked “what’s the best tool or service to use for _______”? So to help you out and keep it simple and easy, this page has links to all of the resources I use on this site and in my business. Every link is a “highly recommended” product or service. These are tried and true services that have helped me grow my business, and will help you grow your business, too.
Full disclosure: many of the links are affiliate links, but this in no way diminishes that I fully recommend and personally endorse (and use) all of these services. If you have questions about why I recommend them, please shoot me an email to ryan at ryanaharris.dot com or submit the form on the contact page. Thanks.
Autoresponder (houses your email list and sens your email blasts, newsletters, and auto-timed emails): Aweber and iContact (I have used both. Aweber is a more robust email service but it requires double optin, iContact only requires single optin, which is why it is my current email/autoresponder engine. But iContact has less features. Either is a solid choice. Aweber continues to improve and provides beautiful email templates and optin forms, which is why it’s a great choice for most marketers.
“Evergreen” Automated and Live Webinar Platform (with built in squeeze pages). Evergreen is what I use to host automated webinars and live webinars. It is “feature rich” and if you want to launch a webinar-driven project once, and have it run on autopilot from that point forward as if it were a “live” launch, then this is the best tool ever invented. Created by serious Internet Marketers for newbie Internet Marketers, it’s surprisingly affordable. Click the image below to watch a demo video.
Kajabi is fantastic in so many ways! Kajabi is the content platform for delivering my Creating Wealth from the Inside Out Home Study Course. Brendan Burchard loves it too! Click the image below to learn more about Kajabi.
Infusionsoft: Infusionsoft combines everything your business needs—contact management, CRM, marketing automation and e-commerce—into a single online system. It’s the easiest way to grow sales and save time. Keep track of contacts, appointments, tasks and everything else about your business all in one place. Access Infusionsoft from any computer with an Internet connection and work from anywhere.
Hybrid Connect – The Ultimate List Building Plugin for WordPress:
This is an amazing plugin that allows you to create beautiful optin forms for a WordPress site. Almost all aspects of the form are instantly customizable with no techie knowledge needed, and it works with all of the major autoresponder services such as Aweber. This plugin allows you to put the forms anywhere that you can put a widget item, which is virtually anywhere on your site. It’s a HUGE timesaver and the forms look really professional, which helps you grow your email list fast.
All in One SEO Pack Pro: This is a premium plugin for WordPress that is easy to use and provides 99% of the SEO (search engine optimization) that you need. You simply tell it what your page or post title is, provide a short excerpt, add your keywords, and that’s it. Search engines will then index your post or page accordingly. No other on-site SEO is required for WordPress sites. Note: this is only for WordPress sites (which is all I ever build now).
Web hosting: I use GreenGeeks now because they are environmentally friendly, have great support, are affordable, and very reliable! I used to use GoDaddy, but I do not agree with the ethics of their owners (he likes to shoot big animals, including elephants) so I migrated all of my sites to use GreenGeeks. Give them a shot, they won’t disappoint you.
Need either an Affiliate Tracking System, or a web payment system (and finally leave PayPal behind forever!) and/or an autoresponder system? Or do you need all of it? OfficeAutopilot is a great choice. I don’t use OfficeAutopilot currently, but only because I started with a different affiliate system, but it turned out to be so complicated that I don’t recommend mine to anyone. If I had to do it over again, I would just use Office Autopilot – it’s reliable, affordable, and has a great set of features. I recommend it to all of my clients. Click the image below to learn more.

It’s been awhile since I have done any blogging or video blogging, but I was inspired today to share with you a trick or tip that has helped me to care less about what other people think of me or about me, and to show up as the person I truly want to be.
When it comes to being a heart-centered entrepreneur, the energy you bring to the table is the single most important thing, and if you are concerned about how you are being viewed , perceived, or judged by others, then you aren’t giving it your all, and your work will suffer and you won’t be helping people to your fullest ability. This video contains an idea that might help you. Please comment and share.
PS: If you have a tip that might help others with this issue, please share it as a comment below. Questions are welcome too!
