Keep in mind there is no additional charge to those products if you go through the below links compared to searching through Google. Every tool below I have personally used and am currently using to grow this site. I recommend them becuase I truely believe in the value they have brought me and “The Poly Bag Pro” site. Although I have used these tools, and spent money doing so, they are in no way necessary to be successful. If you decide to purchase through the below links then I give my sincere thanks. But please do so only if you feel the benefits gained will outweigh the costs.
Blue Host - 100% of my sites are hosted on Blue Host. They have great customer service, an easy to use interface, and it’s only $6.95 a month for a year subscription (Note: You get charged the 12months in advance).
WordPress.org - This is the publishing platform I use to maintain my sites. Wonderfully easy to use with great features and support. You can also visit wordpress.com for free domains.
The Best Spinner - The #1 Article spinning software on the web. This has helped me save A LOT of time writing articles by rewording my previously written posts. I can create mutiple “spins” and submit them to various article directories without having to worry about duplicate content.
Marketing Samurai - This is a great program that I used to do keyword research for my posts. If I need ideas to write about I’ll use Market Samauri to see what people are searching for relating to the poly bag industry and plastics bags.
Fiverr - This is a great site where people will do various tasks for only $5. That is a great deal! “The Poly Bag Pro” logo was created by a designer I contacted on Fiverr.
PayPal - The internet standard for purchasing products or transferring funds online.
Plastics News - This is my #1 resource for plastic and poly bag industry news. A great trade magazine with interesting and engaging articles.
PolyPak America – This is the company I work for. You’ll notice I often site them and their products in my post. I feel comfortable listing them as a resource because (1) I’ve learned a majority of what I know about plastics and poly bags from my coworkers and customers and (2) I 100% stand behind the products we make. We aren’t always the cheapest but we will ALWAYS be of the highest quality.
LinkedIn - LinkedIn is the #1 Professional Social Network. I have used it successfully to find and connect with new prospects and I highly encourage you to set up a profile and 100% complete it. If you’d like to connect with me on LinkedIn then click here.
Books I Love:
How to Have Confidence and Power in Dealing with People - An exceptional book with some great ideas on dealing with people. Even though it was written 50+ years ago it still has some very insightful ideas that work. Highly recommended!
Blink: The Power of Thinking Without Thinking – I am a huge Malcolm Gladwell fan. This was a wonderful read full of insightful concepts. My takeaway? Trust your gut feelings.
Think and Grow Rich - A truly amazing book and one I highly recommend. Napoleon Hill was well ahead of his time when writing this and I still practice many of the things I learned from him.
Smart Passive Income With Pat Flynn – This is easily my most visited blog. Pat has done an amazing job showcasing his journey towards developing blogs and passive income. Many of the things I do on this site was directly learned through Pat’s site.
