Fiverr (Freelance Services)

  • Offering a platform much like Angie’s List, Fiverr focuses on connecting the overwhelmed Entrepreneur with a specialized Freelancer.

  • All their services are vetted. Insuring top quality talent to fulfill your needs.

  • 3 payment tiers, each with their own outline of services rendered.

  • From logos to writing, proofreading to web development.. You would be hard pressed not to find a skilled freelancer that wouldn’t get the job done.

Only pitfall is the inconsistency on time frame when estimating replies from those you are seeking to hire. Mostly, Fiverr has been a really good sourcing mechanism for the things most are not capable of doing.

Landing Page Monkey (Sales Conversion Tool)

  • Low Cost/ High Feature Value

  • Simple To Use

  • Flexible web based tool, convenient.

  • HTML/PHP & WordPress friendly

  • Compatible with ALL autoresponders

  • Higher Lean Opt-in Conversions

  • 12,000+ copies sold

As good as those points make it out to be, there is still a learning curve when using this software. LPM do have a knack for converting more leads into sales, but a user needs an established email list prior to purchasing this software. “WordPress Compatible is only in reference to the .Org version and the Business Account.
