Online Marketing Tools: The 35 Best Tools for Your Success

On this page we would like to give you an overview of all the important online marketing tools that will make your work in your online business much easier. You will find programs here, for example for creating videos or graphics, but also for on-page analysis or keyword research.

All tools are divided into suitable categories, which you can easily reach using the navigation below. By the way, you will also find some information about each tool and of course a note on the price.

With some tools you will also find a yellow box with the title “My recommendation”. These are online marketing tools or services that we use ourselves and consider to be particularly good.

All – in – one packages for your website
You don’t want to deal with a content management system, take care of the hosting, make sure that your website is safe from attacks and also pay someone to design your website? Then all – in – one website packages are right for you. Here you not only get a sitebuilder and themes to easily design your website yourself, but also the hosting and much more.

Online Marketing Tool Builderall

Builderall (from € 18.90 per month)
Builderall is a professional website building tool that really takes care of everything you need. The tool not only offers you a super easy drag – and – drop website builder, but also many free themes. Website hosting and the security of your site are also taken care of. So here you really get an “All – In – One” package.

But the best thing about this tool is the price: While you normally have to calculate at least € 5 per month for hosting and add a lot of money for programmers or web designers, everything is available here for the unbeatable price of € 8.90 per month.

Content management system
You should think about whether and which content management system you want to use to manage and create your website before you start any work on your website. Because: This decision often depends on which other online marketing tools you can work with. Here you will find an overview of various CMS and my personal tip.

WordPress logo

WordPress (free)
Contrary to what many people think, WordPress is not only suitable for blogs.
With WordPress it is also very easy to create websites. We implement all of our products with this content management system and are extremely satisfied with it.

Administration is very easy, just like creating pages or posts. You also have the option of creating different users so that you can, for example, outsource the posting of new content.

By the way, the big advantage of WordPress is its extremely widespread use. As a result, the system itself is not only quickly developed, security gaps are also closed quickly and there are countless themes and extensions.

Would you like to create your first website with WordPress? Then I recommend you to take a look at our article series WordPress for Beginners . Here we will show you step by step and free of charge how you can create your first website.

Typo3 logo
Typo3 (free)
Just like WordPress, Typo3 is a completely free content management system. With this tool, too, you can manage the pages and posts of your website, select themes and install extensions without any programming knowledge.

Typo3 is not quite as simple as WordPress, however. Here you have to plan a few hours of time and, if necessary, fall back on a corresponding course in order to be able to use the content management system professionally.

Typo3 is one of the six most widespread CMS, but has a significantly smaller community than the “big player” WordPress. For this reason, the further development is not so rapid and the selection of themes and extensions is smaller.

If you want to create your own website, you need a place where your website is saved so that users can access it around the clock. You will find hosters in a wide variety of price ranges. There are even companies that offer simple hosting completely free of charge.

My tip: under no circumstances save on hosting. Very cheap providers often offer poor performance, which means that your website loads very slowly.

Logo Domain Factory

DomainFactory (from € 3.99 per month)
We have trusted Domain factory for many years, so we can confidently recommend the hoster to you.

Domainfactory offers 1A service, a good price-performance ratio, is very reliable and fast, which is important for good search engine rankings. I will also explain everything you need to know about hosting here .

Incidentally, DomainFactory also offers so-called WordPress hosting. The hosting price remains the same, only that you no longer have to laboriously install WordPress yourself, but this online marketing tool has already been installed for you.

Builderall logo

Builderall (from € 18.90 per month)
Builderall again? Yeah right!

Not only can you build your own website with Builderall, the hosting is also taken over. So you don’t have to factor in additional costs for hosting, nor do you have to deal with all the complicated technology related to hosting, especially for beginners.

Logo Strato
Strato (from € 4 per month)
Another German and very well-known hosting provider is Strato. Here, too, you have the option to choose from various hosting programs. These start from as little as € 4 per month.

Just like Domain Factory, Strato also offers WordPress hosting plans. The principle is the same here, so you don’t have to worry about installing WordPress. Strato also takes care of the WordPress updates and backups for your site.

Not only does the technology of a website have to be right, it also has to look good, of course. In order to design a professional website quickly and easily, I can only recommend that you use ready-made themes. This has the great advantage that you don’t have to deal with programming.

Thrive themes

Thrive Theme Builder ($ 19 monthly)
Create a theme according to your ideas without programming knowledge? That’s possible with the new Thrive Theme Builder. As usual, you can easily build a theme for your WordPress website according to your wishes.

If you are looking for more information on all other Thrive Themes products, take a look at my XXL test report on Thrive Themes .

Builderall logo

Builderall (from € 18.90 per month)
Builderall also deserves a place in the “Themes” category, because here you can choose between a whole range of high-quality themes for websites, landing pages and blogs:

Layouts at Builderall
In order to keep the whole thing clear, the themes can be filtered using different categories and industries. Here you will find special themes for blogs, online businesses or companies in a wide variety of industries.

The best for last: All themes are already included in your membership. So you don’t have to budget again for an extra theme.

Logo Themeforest
ThemeForest (from $ 5 per HTML theme / from $ 13 per CMS theme)
At Themeforest you can find the right one for your website from an infinite number of high-quality themes.

Here you will not only find themes for your WordPress website, ThemeForest also offers pure HTML themes or themes for other CMS.

Some of them also have detailed video instructions that you can use to customize your website.

WordPress plugins
Of course, our online marketing tool tips for WordPress plugins should not be missing . There are a lot of these and you can quickly be tempted to install a dozen different plugins on your own website. But be careful: Of course, these plugins also require storage space and intervene in your website. This can cause your website to slow down. Therefore, limit yourself to the plugins that you really need here.

Online Marketing Tool Thrive Architect

Thrive Architect (from $ 19 monthly)
Thrive Architect is a WordPress plugin from Thrive Themes with which you can easily create complex pages using drag & drop. We now use Thrive Architect in all of our projects and we also use the online marketing tool here on the online marketing site. In the following graphic you can see how easy Thrive Architect works:

This WordPress editor offers you maximum flexibility and is still very easy to use. Even if you are a complete beginner, you can use it to create a professional website. I have put together more detailed information about Thrive Architect for you here.

Bounce Booster WordPress Plugin

Bounce Booster (from 89 €)
The Bounce Booster intervenes when the user wants to leave your website using the “back” button of the browser.

An example: A user comes to your website via a link on Facebook. For some reason he wants to jump off, so switch from your page to the previous page using the browser’s “back” button. This is bad for you. Because you are losing a valuable user who might have made you money.

Here you can take countermeasures with the WordPress plugin “Bounce Booster”. You have the option of storing a page here that is displayed when the user presses the “back” button. Here you can, for example, make him a great offer or give him something as a present. So you have another chance to convince the user of a purchase or to get it into your e-mail list.

In my opinion, it is really a great plugin that you shouldn’t do without.

Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 (free)
Contact forms offer users the opportunity to make an inquiry quickly and easily. This is why there is hardly a website that is missing such a form.

With the WordPress plugin Contact Form 7 you don’t need any programming knowledge to create a contact form. With just a few clicks you can insert a wide variety of fields in the form.

Contact Form 7 is our favorite plug-in for creating contact forms, as the plug-in is extremely slim and is also free of charge.

Yoast SEO Tool

Yoast SEO (free | premium version 79 €)
If you are optimizing your website for the search engines, matching titles and meta descriptions for the individual pages must of course not be missing. For this we use the online marketing tool Yoast SEO.

Yoast SEO is available in a free and a premium version. The free version is completely sufficient for our benefit. If you also want to manage the forwarding of your pages via the plugin, get suggestions for internal links and one year of free support, you should use the premium version.

Google Analytics logo

Google Analytics Dashboard for WP (free)
The free WordPress plugin “Google Analytics Dashboard for WP” allows us to display all important statistics on our website in our WordPress dashboard. Every time you visit the dashboard, you can see how the number of visits has developed. For us a nice and helpful plug-in that is also super easy to use.

YoastComment Hacks
Yoast Comment Hacks (Free)
At this point I actually wanted to recommend the Yoast plugin “Comment Redirect”, which we also use here on the online marketing site. If a user writes a comment for the first time, it is automatically forwarded to a “thank you” page, where a small gift awaits him.

Unfortunately, this plugin will no longer be updated. Instead, Yoast has put the Comment Redirect function in the “Yoast Comment Hacks” plugin. In addition to this function, you will find many other helpful “hacks” in this online marketing tool, such as the ability to set a minimum content length.

Online Marketing Tool Easy Affiliate Links

Easy Affiliate Links (Free)
If you use affiliate links on your website, you will love “Easy Affiliate Links”! With this plugin you can easily manage all your affiliate links directly and WordPress and set up redirects or shortlinks. If a link changes, you can change it directly in the plugin and you no longer have to search all pages for the corresponding link. A real tip for us.

It’s super easy to create content with these online marketing tools & services
Creating new texts, videos, graphics and images on a regular basis can consume a lot of time and money. With the right services and online marketing tools, however, you can make this work a lot easier.

Here I would not only like to introduce you to some tools that I like to use, but also show you platforms where you can get help with creating content.

The creation of high-quality and extensive texts takes an incredible amount of time. An hour or two can go by, from researching to writing and correcting a text. Here I would like to introduce you to some services and online marketing tools that make our life easier when creating texts.

In order to first familiarize myself with the questions on a specific topic, I use the free W question tool from Seobility. Here you simply enter a keyword and frequently asked questions about this term are displayed.

Microsoft Word logo
Microsoft Word (from € 149 in the Office package)
We always write the texts for our websites in Word. As a result, the texts are secured even in the event of an Internet failure and the many built-in tools, such as the automatic spell check or the preset headings, help us to create new content quickly and in a structured manner.

Textbroker logo

Images and graphics should of course not be missing on websites. If you know where to look, you don’t even have to spend a lot of money on high quality images. There are also many online tools for creating graphics and editing images with which you can work professionally quickly, easily and in some cases completely free of charge.

Pixabay logo

At Pixabay you will find a huge selection of images and graphics that you can use for your projects (whether private or commercial) free of charge.

Builderall logo

Builderall (from € 18.90 per month)
You are wondering why the all – in – one website tool, which I already introduced to you above, appears here again?

Because with Builderall you can not only create websites, but also create high quality images and graphics. In the Builderall design studio, for example, you have the option of using so-called mockups. Here you can insert an image into various elements. For example, you can create a 3D cover for an eBook, but you can also display an image in 3D on an iPhone or something similar. Here you can see a small selection of the templates:

Create video
With the right means, videos for Youtube and Co. can now be created quite easily, even as a layperson. I can recommend the following tools for creating videos.

Screen recordings with Screenflow

Screenflow (from $ 129)
Screenflow is currently only available for MAC and is our number 1 program for video.

The sound can be recorded via an internal or external recording device and the computer audio can also be recorded directly.

Screenflow can record the screen directly, but it can also use the internal webcam for video recordings.

Builderall logo

Builderall (from € 18.90 per month)
In order to make the all – in – one online marketing tool really complete, Builderall should of course not be missing a video creator. This is also included in the monthly Builderall membership and offers you the opportunity to create super easy animated videos or videos with a so-called green screen.

And these tools are also all included in the membership. So you do not need to spend hundreds of euros in addition for very complicated video programs, but can fall back on the super simple and very user-friendly tools from Builderall.

Apowersoft Online Screen Recorder (Free)
The online screen recorder does what the name suggests. You can use it to quickly and easily take good screen recordings without having to install a large program. You can even choose whether the PC sound, no sound or sound from an external source should be recorded.

Video editing program Premiere Pro
Adobe Premiere Pro (€ 23.79 per month)
When it comes to cutting videos, we like to use Premiere Pro. In addition to video editing, you can also make color corrections and use effects here. This online marketing tool requires some training. If you decide to use this video editing program, you should look out for corresponding tutorials.

Website analysis tools
When it comes to online marketing, you should never ignore developments. The website in particular plays a major role here and should be monitored very closely, because in online marketing everything depends on a successful website.

Here I would like to introduce you to various tools that will help you to keep an eye on your website. These include, for example, online marketing tools that give you information about the visitors to your website, but also tools that show you how your website is doing in the search engines.

Online marketing tools for email marketing
Email marketing can be used for a variety of purposes. For example, you can inform your customers about the latest news from the company, but with email marketing you can also announce promotions and thus achieve more sales.

In order for e-mail marketing to run as efficiently as possible, you cannot do without the right e-mail marketing tools. Regardless of whether it is about managing the email addresses or collecting them on a website, you will find my tips here.

Generate leads
How can I convince users to add themselves to my email list? This is a central question in e-mail marketing, because without e-mail addresses in your list, you cannot of course do any marketing. Here I would like to introduce you to email marketing tools that you can use to build your email list.

Logo Thrive Leads

Klick Tipp is one of the most popular email marketing providers in Germany. That is not by accident.

There are many online marketing tools and platforms that can help you with this. However, it is always important to choose trustworthy partners. Especially when it comes to money, users have to trust them, otherwise nobody will leave money with you. No matter how good a product is.

This is also the case in online marketing.

But it doesn’t have to be the most expensive of the most expensive. Many of the products we use are free or available for a low price. Still, these tools do a great job.
