I thought it would be helpful to create a page with all the stuff that’s helped me exponentially grow my business over the years and these are products and tools that I personally endorse so that you can cut short that learning curve.

Domains & Hosting

  • Godaddy: This is where I pick up all my domain names. They’ve got a free one-year WHOIS guard protection.
  • Cloudways: Excellent hosting solution. Easy to use, 1-click automatic WordPress installation, and excellent customer service. Highly recommended for your first site.

Email Subscriptions & Marketing

  • MailChimp: The internet’s most powerful email opt-in service and email marketing/broadcasting tool. This is what I use to build my email list and newsletter.


  • ManyChat: This is my favourite Facebook Messenger Chatbot. I’ve got a lot of customers using this tool. Go to asksidz.com and type “zoom” to see this in action.

Blogging & SEO

  • WordPress: The #1 Blog Publishing Platform. Free and easily customizable with wonderful support. All of my blogs use WordPress.

Design Page

  • Canva: The #1 most user-friendly Design creator online.

Product Distribution & Shopping Carts

  • Razorpay: Want to start selling products online in India? This my favourite payment processor.
  • Payumoney: Another digital products retailer. Probably the most popular. Decently priced, but comes with an amazing affiliate program for your products.

Keyword Research

  • Google Adwords Tool: A tool to help you decide what keywords to use for your Adwords campaigns. You can also check to see the popularity of certain keywords and the competition for ads for those keywords as well.

Advertising Stuff

  • Google Adsense: Make money by placing relevant ads on your website that are generated from advertisers using Google Adwords. This is free to use, but you have to register for an account.
  • Google Adwords: If you want to begin advertising on Google, you can select keywords and locations and you pay each time someone clicks on your advertisement.

Tracking Results

  • Google Analytics: Google’s free website tracking and analytical tool. A must-have for anyone with any type of website.
