Micro Sales Funnels
ActiveCampaign – A little bit newer than many of the “big” name email autoresponder tools out there; however, that’s a good thing because it’s been built with the latest technology and features in mind. Get the same functions and features as a $300/mo service at 1/6th the price. I can’t say enough great stuff about this tool!

SiteGround – This is the service we use for Crazy Eye Marketing, and we're happy with it. We're currently on their $80/mo Cloud Hosting plan.
Avada Premium WordPress Theme – I’ve used A LOT of premium WordPress themes from Thesis to Genesis to WooThemes and everything in between. Avada has been the easiest, prettiest, and most versatile theme I’ve come across.
Forms / Opt-ins
Gravity Forms – My favorite WordPress plugin ever. Create beautiful forms that connect to hundreds of services like ActiveCampaign, MailChimp, Stripe, PayPal, Zapier, Dropbox, Freshbooks, Agile CRM, and more! Create polls, surveys, and user registration forms. The possibilities with this plugin are seemingly endless.
Thrive Leads – THE ultimate opt-in form plugin for WordPress users. Create opt-in forms in minutes. Easily build lightbox opt-ins, exit popups, slide-ins, full page forms, split tests, and more. An incredibly solid tool for a great price. I use it on all of my sites.
Google Analytics – It's free. It's powerful. It plays nicely with many other tools like WordPress and ActiveCampaign. What's not to like?!
Membership & Training
ActiveMember360 – This is a WordPress plugin that integrates with ActiveCampaign (our marketing automation tool). This makes things ultra-easy to keep synced and if you use ActiveCampaign, I highly recommend this plugin.
Stripe – Accept credit cards directly on your site. Very low fees, lots of integrations, subscription services, and more. We use Stripe on all of our sites!
ThriveCart – A new shopping cart platform that I am a beta user for. There are still a few kinks in it; however, it's currently handling all orders on Crazy Eye Marketing! It integrates nicely with Stripe, PayPal, Apple Pay, and a several membership platforms to include OptimizeMember.
Backend Management / Planning
Trello – The best project management tool I’ve ever come across … and the free version will probably suit most needs! It’s real easy to coordinate with team members, add files from Google Drive and Dropbox, add notes, and more!
