From The Office of Richard Martin
Here you will find links to helpful and can't live without products and services I use and love to run my online businesses.
These products and services come wholly recommended by me. I use them, I love them, and I'm 100% confident that any one of these would help you in your internet business too.
I started with Bluehost on this very blog, and currently have a number of sites hosted with them.
Bluehost are cheap and reliable, and with any purchase of a hosting package you get a free domain thrown in.
This blog is currently hosted with WP Engine. Absolutely awesome speed, built for WordPress, and with some awesome features included.
This hosting is for the determined blogger.
I use Get Response for all my leads and email addresses I collect.
I chose this over others because it is a little cheaper and has an easy to manage dashboard set-up making email marketing a stroll in the park.
Previous theme I had for the blog. And I absolutely love it.
Plus Wes, the designer, is such a helpful guy (Thanks Wes). If you want highly customizable blog themes, this is the place to go.
A superb collection of WordPress themes for every taste. Prices are from free to premium pricing.
This is a place I go to often for themes for my other projects.
eBook Author Theme
A really nice, simple theme for eBooks.
The special link from this page gives you a huge discount on a multi site licence.
Designed for bloggers who also have a podcast, but can be used as a blog on its own.
Terrific selection of themes available for one low price from my friend Joey Kissimme.
This blog uses the Soundcast theme.
This is a pretty damn cool (but expensive) lead generation plugin.
What happens, right now, when you go to the top of the page and try and leave this site?
This can be used as a full theme, or like I prefer, as a plugin.
Easily create sales pages, squeeze pages, membership sites, funnels and more.
(P.S - This very page has been built with OptimizePress 2.0)

Similar to OptimizePress in that it offers drag and drop marketing pages - only cheaper.
Create stunning sales pages, membership sites, opt in pages, and sales funnels without having to change your main Wordpress theme.

Don't let the small price tag put you off - this is a gorgeous and highly customisable plugin that allows you to showcase your best posts or products in your sidebar.
Take a look at the colourful links to your right on any blog post.
I use this software every time I create a video. Simple to use, packed with features and really powerful. It's for Mac Users only (sorry)
A truly excellent piece of software.
Video Maker FX
This is pretty powerful software - create explainer videos, whiteboard videos, and marketing videos, all from this clever piece of software.
It's pretty impressive, I'm sure you'll agree.
Have you seen them cool whiteboard videos? Course you have. I use one on my sales page for one of my courses.
Highly recommended, with a free 7 day trial.
Snag It is one of my all time favourites. Need a screen grab? Just click the icon, and you can instantly grab whatevers on your screen, and then edit it.
It also does video capture. Highly recommended.
A Quick Word From Me
Please also note that I only ever promote products that I use and have had a good experience with. I NEVER review or promote a product or service with the sole intention of trying to earn a commission. That's not how I roll. I want the blog to be based on helping you, my reader and friend, learning from my experience (and mistakes!) and hopefully being able to put some of the things into practice and earning money from the internet.
It is completely up to you whether or not you choose to go through my link. If you have found the blog or a post valuable, and want a way to thank me, then you can choose to go through my link which will earn me a commission. If you choose to do this, then I thank you very much for the support. Thank you so much to those that have already shown support for the blog (with some of you even emailing me to make sure I received the commission!).
