Recommended Tools You Can Use

The following is what we’ve been using for a few years in our business.  We’ll be adding to this list to keep you updated. Bookmark this page so you can use reference it as often as you need to.

Getting Your Site Online:

List Building/Autoresponder:

Depending on your setup we’d recommend a few options for you…

First, are you using a shopping cart that includes an Autoresponder? If yes – then we’d automatically recommend that you use that versus adding another system and additional expense into the mix. If you’d like an all-in-one system, highly recommend KickStartCart.

Secondly, if you are just looking for an autoresponder system with no shopping cart, then we’d recommend Aweber which you can send your emails and ezine through as you wish.

Personally we’ve been established with WAHMCart since 2009 and use that for our shopping cart and autoresponder system, so you will see my email delivered through WAHMCart’s system.

Leading Moms in Business – Less than six weeks left…

Looking at the calendar and I see that Leading Moms in Business will end in a 6 1/2 weeks. It is so great to read the support of those I have met online. I was asked a few months ago if you can develop relationships online – the answer is YES! Yes, you can.

I have one client that I have spoke with at least monthly on the phone, I have another client that we have never “TALK”ed on the phone but we can effectively exchange emails back and forth and understand what each is saying. I have realized that sometimes it is not easy to communicate what you want to say through an email but it does work between the right people.

Top 5 resources Staci is using:

  1. Google – Gmail for emailing, Google Docs for Files, and Picasa for Pictures
  2. Skype – with Pamela for Skype with wireless headset
  3. Fast Dell computer
  4. Business Coach, Erica Rueschhoff
  5. ME! – my energy, attitude, knowledge and personality to keep moving forward

“GOTTA Have It” for my business:

  1. OpenOffice.org/Google Docs – creating documents
  2. Market Samurai – finding keywords, checking on competitors
  3. Ninja Affiliate Plugin – connecting my affiliate links to my keywords used on my website
  4. Gravity Forms – Really helps to add more to your website
  5. StudioPress WordPress.org Themes – Love everything they offer

Diana Walker says Staci Jansma is one Phenomenal Lady! – She has helped me so much in my business, she is very proactive and I love that she will make suggestions, and also help me learn and understand what she is doing. Her support, knowledge, professionalism, and enthusiasm are absolutely exceptional. I would not be where I am without Staci’s assistance this past year and I am grateful to have found her! Staci deserves gigantic success and I know she is a shining star! Diana Walker

Wireless Headset from Skype Shop

I have been using a hands-free cheap mic from walmart that was less than $10 and lately with my new desktop I have been using the computer’s mic – been advised that at times others can’t hear me the best.

Hoping my latest edition will be a keeper and will please everyone that speaks with me through Skype.

This is what I got and I just noticed today – it’s 15% off too Good deal for you – wish it was 15% off when I bought it last week.
