It’s easy for any new affiliate to be overwhelmed by the number of tools and resources out there to help you succeed.

I frequently get asked what affiliate marketing tools I personally use, so here’s a list of what I use daily to be successful with affiliate marketing.

I’ll update this page frequently, so be sure to bookmark it for reference when you’re looking for a specific tool or resource for your affiliate marketing business.

Tracking

Voluum – Fantastic auto-optimization features, bot detection, and it’s cloud-hosted. Great option if you are going to do high volume on Zeropark (no-cost for events).

Binom – My favorite tracker. Completely oriented toward affiliates, but the downside is you have to host it on your own server.

BeMob – Good tracker to get started. The interface is like Voluum and is also cloud-hosted. They have a completely free plan, which makes it the best option for newbies on a tight budget.

Google Analytics – Essential for tracking user behavior in white-hat pay per call or lead generation campaigns where a click tracker isn’t necessary or shouldn’t be used.

Google Tag Manager – The best tool for implementing site-wide analytics, scripts, or other tracking into your lead generation website.

Forums

STM Forum – Previously known as Stack That Money. Hands down the best affiliate forum you can join. Learn directly from 7-figure super affiliates.

AffLift – Very affordable CPA affiliate forum started by Luke PeerFly. Very active. Quality content. Reccomended for beginners.

Spy Tools

Anstrex – They have both a native spy tool and a push notification ads spy tool. This is my favorite tool currently for spying on push notifiation campaigns.

AdPlexity – Probably the best spy tool you can have for CPA marketing. They have different versions for Mobile, Desktop, Native, Ecommerce and Carrier offers. Use code ‘Nick‘ for $50 off (lifetime discount) any of their products.

SpyFu – Google Ads spy tool. Good for pay per call or lead generation campaigns.

Hosting

Amazon Web Services – Very affordable solution (free for the first year) to host CPA landing pages. Follow this guide to get set up with S3 + Cloudfront for super fast landing pages.

Instapage – Landing page builder and hosting. Great for when you need good looking landing pages with forms. Good for traffic sources like Google and Facebook (not suitable for PPV traffic).

Landing Page Tools

PureLander – Landing page builder made specifically for CPA affiliate marketing. Build high converting landing pages fast. See my review here.

Brackets – My favorite HTML/CSS/Javascript editor.

DirtyMarkup – Quickly format landing page code so you can read it to make necessary changes (great for ripped landing pages).

HTMLCompressor – Reduce the size of your html, css, and javascrtipt to make your landing pages load faster.

BrowserStack – Check if your landing pages are loading correctly on all differnt types of devices.

Kraken – Dramatically improve your landing page’s load time by optimizing and compressing images.

GTmetrix – Check how fast your landing pages are loading an identify any major issues.

Design Tools

Photopea – Almost exactly like Adobe Photoshop, but free and completely web-based (no software to download).

Remove.bg – Free tool to remove the background from an image with people in it. Speeds up the time it takes to make creatives for campaigns.
