Hasan Raza · September 28, 2018 at 1:17 pm

Awesome, its a very good list of Marketing Tools, there are some more tools for Affiliate Marketing listed at Cloudways which I found equally awesome. Thanks

pmbaluka2016 · July 17, 2018 at 3:04 pm

I’m so glad that I found this information about the free tools to leverage upon in building my online business. This post is a great resource and I will bookmark it for future reference whenever I want to use any of these tools.

Now tell me more about Answer The Public, I had always thought that this is a free tool and recently I tried to search for a keyword and I was surprised to be told that I can’t access it because the number of times has exceeded the limit. Do you know anything about this?

Wishing you all the best


    Greg · July 17, 2018 at 5:24 pm

    Looks like they added throttled use for the free account. maybe try a different web browser.

ZEGU · July 16, 2018 at 7:54 pm

Thank you for writing such a comprehensive post. Also, for sharing really useful information about affiliate marketing tools. This is exactly what I was looking for.
Your post has reassured me I did the right thing by joining Wealthy Affiliate.
WA is indeed a one-stop provider where entrepreneurs can get almost everything they need for their internet businesses ranging from: training, tools, hosting services and an outstanding community.

    Greg · July 16, 2018 at 8:06 pm


Fleur Allen · July 8, 2018 at 10:00 pm

Thanks Greg for sharing this post. I read with great interest and am pleased to be using many of what you had suggested. However I haven’t heard of so I will check that out. I have discovered Grammarly recently and love it and you reminded me I really to make greater use of Canva. Thank you this is very helpful.

    Greg · July 8, 2018 at 10:22 pm


Michael · July 5, 2018 at 8:18 pm

Being a member of WA myself, I can say that all these tools have greatly helped me build out my business online.

One I recently started using more that you listed is canva. I really love this because I can draw or deacon whatever I want — and this free program lets me create amazing graphics literally within minutes.

I highly urge everyone to check this out and give it a shot.

    Greg · July 5, 2018 at 9:10 pm

    Yes Canva is a great tool for graphics and images.

Howard · June 28, 2018 at 4:20 pm


Your title drew me in to this article, particularly because of the word free.

There is so much nonsense written about affiliate marketing in general but you have broken down, into bite size pieces, how it really is possible to grow a business without significant investment. Thank you!

Wealthy Affiliate sounds great and I have bookmarked your site for further reading.

Thank you for this timely post!

    Greg · June 28, 2018 at 7:02 pm

    You’re welcome.

Thomas Harvey · June 27, 2018 at 2:45 pm

Overall it was a very good blog. I learned a lot. However, on your video I got the feeling that all the tools came with the free version. Such as, you included, I thought, the WA Bootcamp in the free version. Several other things were presented as free which are part of the Premium version. This may have been misunderstanding on my part, but if I misunderstood others may also.
On your video, which is very good, you might slow down your dialog. I had a little trouble keeping up with your train of thought.
But, as a whole, it is very well presented. I learned a lot and plan to put it to use.
Thanks for a good site.

    Greg · July 3, 2018 at 12:13 am

    You can use all of these tools for free, a few like Jaaxxy have a limit to them. Others have free and paid versions. Hope That helps.

Saurav · June 24, 2018 at 6:29 pm

Hey Greg! This is a brilliantly explained article which I’m sure every marketer would be able to benefit from. The tools that you have mentioned are undoubtedly some of the best ones available out there. Saw that you mentioned Wealthy Affiliate in the list and being a member myself, I can say that it is of great value.

    Greg · June 24, 2018 at 7:31 pm


Pablo Raschetti · June 20, 2018 at 8:32 am

Hello Greg,

You have definitely have described the best tools available to help make a business online. The tools available from the Wealthy Affiliate Free Membership are great to start and continually grow a business. I used them and I have upgraded to Premium, in about 2 days since I started! That’s how good they are to me.
 Also, Canva is an impressive tool. You can be a graphic designer pretty much without ever designed anything, and particularly useful for blogs. Grammarly is another great tool, I love the fact that the free version corrects a lot of the mistakes you can make, orthographic and grammar mistakes, and so for who is not a native English speaker like me it becomes a pleasure to write with this tool.

I think you have given to my opinion the best advice on the best tools out there. I personally tried other similar tools and even spent some money on some, and I totally support your choices.

    Greg · June 20, 2018 at 7:39 pm

    Thanks, glad you fine them useful.

Dave · June 19, 2018 at 6:53 am

Hello there, 

Thanks a lot for the comprehensive list of the free affiliate marketing tools every marketer should have. I see you recommend the wealthy affiliate community for support.

I also back you up on that because am in it and have seen great value from it. 

One question. Is it recommended to get Grammarly if you have site content? Isn’t site content enough for good spelling check? What is your advice?

    Greg · June 19, 2018 at 8:28 am

    I use both Grammarly and Site Content. They both work great. You don’t have to use both. 

MrC · June 8, 2018 at 9:43 pm

Hi Greg,

This is a great overview of what is offered and how they’re used. As a newer WA member I haven’t used every tool yet.

I especially like Jaxxy. I have been using that a lot. The available tools are what convinced me to join, that and the fact it was free.

    Greg · June 8, 2018 at 11:00 pm

    Awesome, Thanks for the comment.

Christine · June 7, 2018 at 2:39 pm

Excellent information!

As a WA member myself, I couldn’t agree more with what they have to offer.

Having it all in one place I think is the best part. It definitely does save time and money when working on your website.

The community is second to none in terms of support and encouragement. I would highly recommend Wealthy Affiliate to anyone considering starting as an affiliate marketer. And free is always good!

    Greg · June 7, 2018 at 4:52 pm

    Awesome, thanks for the comment Christine.

Glenys · June 6, 2018 at 4:59 am

HI Greg, I agree with you that Affiliate Marketing is great because it has either little or no actual start up costs. I am a member of Wealthy Affiliate so I also enjoy free website hosting for my sites. I really like the SEO Keyword Research tool Jaaxy as well. I have to say that my favourite part of Wealthy Affiliate is the community. I was wondering of all the free tools you mentioned in this article which is the #1 free tool that you 100% could not do without? Mine is probably the community at Wealthy Affiliate.

    Greg · June 6, 2018 at 6:31 am

    Hi, thanks for the comment and question. I would have to say my number one free tool is WA itself. everything you need is in one place and you can start for free. Upgrading to a premium account is a small fee. It pays for itself.

Michael · June 5, 2018 at 9:39 pm

I have used both WA and canva, and I will say they are great tools any affiliate marketer can use.

Canva has helped me create amazing looking graphics really fast, and WA has helped me build a profitable online business.

How about for video though. What service would you recommend?

I have heard Camtasia might be good but I don’t know
If it’s free.

    Greg · June 5, 2018 at 10:23 pm

    Yeah, Camtasia is not free. I use it and Screen Flow, but both are paid programs.

Christopher · June 5, 2018 at 2:38 am

Hey Greg:

You have very nice outline of the benefits of WA here!

So many useful tools come with the membership It’s hard to decide which I like the most. The fact that you can have your own site up and running in minutes is mind-blowing since I used to think I would have to pay a web designer a lot of $$$!

I really love that Jaaxy comes with the membership. I can’t imagine how long I would have to spend finding appropriate keywords without it.

Do you have a favorite WA feature?

Thank you!

    Greg · June 5, 2018 at 2:51 am

    Hey Christopher, thanks for the comment and question. I would have to say my favorite feature of WA is that it’s all in one.

isaac · June 2, 2018 at 10:20 am

Wealthy affiliate seems to be such a great deal! I’ve stumbled upon many training sites on affiliate marketing but none of them have the tools that wealthy affiliate offers. Of the lot, I’d say the sitecontent and jaaxy keyword tool are the bestbundled tools because these can easily cost up to 20 dollars monthly each!

    Greg · June 2, 2018 at 4:38 pm

    Yes, WA is a real bang for the buck as well.

Vic · May 31, 2018 at 4:45 pm

Great article. I dabble a little bit with affiliate marketing but my main gig is my off-line web design business. I find the tools and resources available at Wealthy Affiliate to be of enormous help to me in building my off-line business as well. Even non-affiliate marketers will find these tools of great value. Thanks for sharing!

    Greg · May 31, 2018 at 5:57 pm

    Thanks for the comment. Yes these tools can be use for many things.

justin · May 31, 2018 at 1:39 am

Hey i really enjoyed this article, wealthy affiliate has so many tools and training to teach anyone affiliate marketing and its amazing. You can learn so much and build your own online business. You were very informative and hopefully a lot more people ends up joining. Keep up the good work and never give up!

    Greg · May 31, 2018 at 1:41 am

    Cool, Thanks.

Nate Glick · May 27, 2018 at 9:47 am

You know what, I have been a member of Wealthy Affiliate for almost two years now and after reading this post I now feel like I take what we get on the inside for granted.
For someone that is looking to start a home business, after reading this, you would be crazy not to a least try it to see if affiliate marketing is for you. I mean, what is it really going to cost you to check things out… absolutely nothing!
What other place online can you actually try the full program, with all perks attached, to truly test drive with a single commitment on your part?

    Greg · May 27, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Thanks for the comment. And yes the WA is the best place to check things out.

Taq'uee Hicks · May 26, 2018 at 6:54 pm

Here are some free tools you can use for your internet marketing, and other online business activities along with many ideas to share with all of you. Learning and keeping up to date knowledge on affiliate marketing, SEO techniques, affiliate marketing programs we want you to join to become a better person. This is a 10-lesson curriculum that is part of the Wealthy Affiliate Online Entrepreneur Certification that you wouldnt find anywhere else in our nation!

    Greg · May 26, 2018 at 7:06 pm

    Awesome comment. Thanks. Yes, the free 10-lesson curriculum is an excellent place to begin even if you have experience.  Upgrading to Premium Membership is an exceptional bang for your buck as well.

Reyhana · May 25, 2018 at 9:52 pm

Hey Greg. I have used most of the tools you mentioned because I am a Wealthy Affiliate member. I want to get some training on Email marketing. Do you know whether this training is also available here or not? I want to expand the way that I grow my business online, with finding new ways to get people on my website. And can you recommend any good WP plug ins for capturing email leads? Thanks!

    Greg · May 25, 2018 at 11:09 pm

    Hi Reyhana, That’s for the comment and the question. Since you are a member of WA. click on the Live Events tab and do a search for “email”.

    Jay has done many resent classes on the topic including:

    The Simplicity of Growing Your Email List

    Email Marketing 2018: 1st Steps to List

    Email Marketing 2018: Sending Your Blog Posts

    Email Marketing 2018: Opt-in Strategies

    Repurposing Content for Additional Traffic

    These should keep you busy for awhile. Each class is about an Hour and a half. 

    Hope that helps,


Eliane · May 23, 2018 at 1:40 pm

Hey Greg,
I also use most of the free affiliate marketing tools you mentioned here, including the ones that are not in Wealthy Affiliate platform, such as Grammarly, Canva, and Answerthepublic.
All are very good and help me writing good quality content to my website.
The free Proofreader, on the other hand, I haven’t tried yet. Will do it after I write my next post (later on today).
Thanks for the awesome tips!

pmbaluka2016 · May 21, 2018 at 3:14 am

I really love this lengthy post on Wealthy Affiliate, I must comment your good work. I love all those wonderful tools found in Wealthy Affiliate platform.

One major challenge I go through when constructing my content is proofreading the post before publishing. You talked about a tool for Mac users but I wonder if there is any tool for window users like me?

Thanks a lot for giving such a great information.

Best of luck


    Greg · May 21, 2018 at 4:26 am

    Hey Paul, Thanks for the comment and question. I’m not a Windows user but I’m sure there is away to have text to speech. Google is your best friend in this situation

Linda · May 20, 2018 at 9:47 pm

Hi Greg,
You’ve compiled a great list here. I’ve used all of these to grow my affiliate marketing business and would have to agree that they’re all exceptional. I did notice that one of my favorite free tools is not listed. So, I thought I’d chime in. We know that attention-grabbing blog headlines are really important when it comes to standing out in the SERPs. I like to use CoSchedule’s Headline-Analyzer to get some feedback on my titles. Have you tried it yet?

    Greg · May 20, 2018 at 11:19 pm

    Hello Linda, I haven’t tried the Headline-Analyzer but will check it out. Thanks for the tip.

justin · May 20, 2018 at 5:45 am

Hey this was a really good article, Wealthy Affiliate has amazing tools and it seems like im learning stuff everyday. I am always wanting to make my next move so i can start making sales. You had a lot of informative information here and this will give many people an insight on all the tools at WA!

Chase · May 19, 2018 at 6:58 pm

I’m amazing these tools are free – whenever I see the word, “free,” I’m always skeptical. But after reviewing your article about the siterubix website, the jaax (I think it’s called) research tool, and the plagiarism analyser I felt inclined to pursue your recommendation of Wealthy Affiliate. It’s strange to think this entire community is thriving off online businesses – not everyone can be successful, right? And also – you said no spam in this community, do you mean they don’t try to sell you things all the time? I’m really thankful for your article – thanks for explaining everything offered for affiliate marketers.

    Greg · May 20, 2018 at 4:07 am

    Hi Chase thanks for the question and the comment. by no Spam – I mean the members of WA don’t spam you. But yes also WA doesn’t try to up sell you stuff.

Prabakaran · May 19, 2018 at 3:36 pm

Thanks for an awesome article about free affiliate tools.
I am using Grammarly, Canva and all the tools of WA. Not to mention, they are very superior to anything else in the market. I want to suggest some more tools.
Keyword Everywhere -Keyword tool -An browser extension, which enables you to see the search volume, CPC, and competition on the search result page itself.
Next is DS Amazon quick view- Browser Extension which enables you to see the product best seller rank, customer reviews, and other details on Amazon page.

    Greg · May 19, 2018 at 5:47 pm

    Thanks for the comment and suggestions I will have to check them out.
