Internet Marketers Wish List Gift Ideas

Internet Marketers love to learn new things and generally love new gadgets and tools to make life easier.  Most work at home businesses can use new tools and gadgets to improve efficiency.  Here is a list of the top wish list ideas for work at home businesses and internet marketers.

Kodak Zi8 Video Camera is perfect for shooting videos for YouTube and doing ad hock interviews.  It has an external microphone jack and that really comes in handy during filming and interviews.  The video quality is good and it records in HD.  I personally use the Canon HF 10 camera, yet this video camcorder is highly recommended by my friends and is more popular than the Flip camera due to the external microphone jack and expandable SD/SDHC card slot up to 32 GB

Canon Powershot SD 1300 IS Point and shoot camera.  I have the older SD1100IS model and it works great.  I take it to all the Tweetups and to events.  It takes great clear pictures and does pretty good for video also.  It is really small and the battery lasts for months depending on how many pictures you take.  I find that I take this with me on every hike, bike ride or just about any day trip since I love to have a camera with me all the time.  I find that the Canon Digital Rebel SLR camera is awesome, yet it just too big to ring with me everywhere.  Highly recommended.

Canon Powershot G12 Point and Shoot camera.  This is a professional model and is even used by wedding photographers and professionals as the camera of choice when the Digital SLR is just to big and cumbersome.  I am getting this camera to have a little more professional shots while still having the small size and light weight.  It is a bit pricey, yet it is a high end camera that delights everyone that uses it.  It takes HD videos, and overall is highly recommended for the more discerning photographer.

Canon VIXIA HF 20 Video Camcorder is totally awesome.  It is a high end camcorder for the Internet Marketers that want the best in class for the gadgets and camera they use.  I have the older model and totally love it.  It has a long battery life, uses removable Flash memory SD cards to store the video on so it is very light weight and super easy to transfer videos to your Mac or PC.

Peachtree Audio iDecco Stereo integrated Amplifier with Tube Pre-Amp and iPod dock.  You want to listen to tunes in your home office and nothing does it better than this little unit with a iPod dock and a tube preamplifier.  This is a bit esoteric, yet I love audio and this is on my wish list.  Tubes sound better than transistors and they really help digital music sound more real and silky. It is a bit pricey, yet if you enjoy a really good sounding stereo system then this is the unit for you.  Just add speakers and you are set to go.  Highly recommended.

The Amazon Kindle is a really nice reading device.  The books cost less on Kindle than in hardcover.  My wife has one and loves it.  I find it is easier to read books on than on the iPad because it is specially designed to be perfect for reading books. It comes in a 9″ that I recommend, and a 6″ that is less expensive and smaller for taking with you everywhere.  Highly recommended.

Facebook Marketing an Hour a Day by Mari Smith.  This is the book I am starting to read today.  Facebook has come very far in becoming a destination place and this book will provide the ideas to implement a Facebook Strategy for your Business.  I am very lucky to have an autographed copy by Mari.  Thank you Mari you are the best.  You can check out Mari’s Facebook Fan page to see a nice design and learn from the Facebook expert.

Picture of Influence Science and Practice book by Cialdini
Influence – Science and Practice by Robert Chialdini.  This is a must read for anyone doing any selling or running a business. I just finished this book today and it is easy to read and understand.  The ideas presented here may save you money by understanding the key psychological persuasion tactics salespeople use to get the sale.  You will also be able to use the tactics in your own selling.  Highly recommended.

The Web Traffic Book by Ross Goldberg with Mari Smith as contributor.  I have this book on my wish list.  Ross Goldberg knows traffic and SEO and I expect this book to be filled with high powered tactics and processes to get more visitors to your web page, blog, Facebook Fan page or any internet location you choose.   I expect it will cover search engine marketing, research strategies, social marketing, video marketing, paid traffic, and linking strategies.

Step Into the Spotlight book
Step Into the Spotlight!- ‘Cause ALL Business is Show Business! by Tsufit is a fantastic book recommended to me by Coach Deb the owner of Quansite.  I have read this book and it is really good!   This is a good book to read twice, implementing all the strategies the second time through.  This is a very useful guide with new information and has easy to follow steps to branding and getting noticed.  Highly recommended.

picture of AT 2020 USB microphone
Audio Technica AT2020 USB Computer Microphone High Quality Microphone for your computer.  It plugs into the USB port on a Mac or a Windows computer.  This is the same microphone I have on my desk right now.  It works excellent and produces great audio for live or recording purposes.  This is the same microphone Bob the Teacher uses for his Internet Marketing Training.  I have not personally compared it to the Blue microphone, or Blue Ball Microphone yet it looks great and works excellent.Picture of Nandy Pop Filter and AT 2020 microphone I use a Nady MPF-6 6-Inch Clamp On Microphone Pop Filter as you see in the picture with the blue light on the AT2020 behind the pop filter.

Audio-Technica ATR-35S Lavalier Microphone This is a great little microphone that is perfect for use with the Kodak Zi8 or Canon HF-20 above.  This is recommended by Mike Koenigs.  I have one and it is well built and works great.  I suggest getting some extra batteries when you buy this lavalier microphone.  I like this 10 pack of Everready LR44 button batteries.  Mike suggested having extra batteries in case you forget to turn off the microphone as it stays on until it is turned off.  It is very reasonably priced so not having an automatic off feature is no big deal.

SMK-Link VP4910 RemotePoint Presentation Remote
SMK-Link VP4910 RemotePoint Presentation Remote
This is on my wish list.  It is a remote control for computers.  It is used while making videos or presentations.  This presenter will change the slides and has a couple programmable buttons to do other things like change the speed of the tele prompter.  It’s a bit pricey yet it is the one I saw Mike Moenigs using in hid studio.  Mike also recommends the Kensington 33374 Wireless Presenter and it is a lot less expensive.  In some cases you may be able to use your computers remote control like a Apple remote.  I ahve not used a presenter yet so I am not sure how much the presenter will differently, yet if Mike recommends it is must be the way to go.  Mike Koenigs is famous for his Traffic Geyser Video Distribution Software.  I am a member of Traffic Geyser and Main Street marketing Machines and presenters are a tool recommended in the training.

Dragon Dictate 2.0Dragon Dictate 2.0 for Mac I have this on my wish list to write articles and blog posts faster by just talking and having the computer do the typing for me.  Dragon Naturally Speaking Premium 11 is the same voice to speech software for windows computers.  Technology is great and the thought of just rambling along and having all y words created into a document like a word document sounds exciting.

Apple TV

Apple TV I love my Apple TV.  I listen to my podcasts on my TV streaming from my computer itunes library.  It is great to watch your marketing or self help videos on your TV.  It streams any video you have added to your iTunes library.  I use it for streaming Netflix movies also.  It is a nice item to have in your office even if you just use it to get internet radio.  There are hundreds of internet radio stations all categorized by music type.  I wrote a Apple TV review “Why Buy the Apple TV – The Internet TV Player“.  This is not a huge productivity tool, yet it is a nice to have a would make a great gift.

stanley electric stapler battery operated

Stanley Battery Operated Electric Stapler I just added this to my wish list because my old electric battery operated stapler wore out.  I love it and it saves you wrists from the continual stapling.. Perfet for any office home or enterprise.  Ergonomically correct way to staple and no wires because of the battery operation.

Electric hole punch
Swingline Commercial Electric 3 Hole Punch, 20 Sheet Capacity, 3 Hole, 74525 I have this hole punch and it is totally awesome.  I like to file my notes in binders so this is the perfect companion for just about any home office.  This is great for Internet Marketers because they need a way to organize all the training material and e-books.  This unit works perfect and is highly recommended.

iZigg mobile M-Card for SMS Text marketing Mobile Marketing M-Card Mobile Marketing is really taking off.  Go Green and get an electronic business Card called a M-Card.  I have one and love it.  Text message ClayFranklin to phone number 90210 on your smart phone to see how quickly your get my information.   Mobile Marketing is totally Awesome.  These plans start at under $15 a month with your very own Keyword at 90210 mobile marketing.  The very best present would be to buy your favorite Internet Marketer or Home Based Business person there own business with iZigg so they can add selling Mobile Media as another product they offer to clients.  Highly recommended.

    Spectacular! Now, I already had an idea on what are the things that internet marketers need to have. How I wish to own atleast three of those numerous items you shared. I love Canon Powershot G12 the most. Thanks for sharing these to us.

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 12:59 am

      Jimmy Did you get a Canon Powershot G12 yet? I’m finding I take the Canon Powershot IS 1100 with me everywhere because it is so small and I wear it in a small belt bag.

  • @Gourmet Cheese December 21, 2010, 2:17 am

    Wonderful! Those gadgets are really amazing! Yup, I agree Jimmy! How cool it would be if I have one of those gadgets on the list. Canon Powershot SD 1300 IS is my best pick. It looks so cool. More power and keep posting!

  • Dave December 21, 2010, 3:37 pm

    That little Kodak video camera produces amazing quality. If you’re a businessman and just want to do simple projects it is perfect. If you’re trying to do fancy stuff with it and need more control such as zoom and white balance and manual focus then you’re not going to like it.

    • Clay Franklin May 29, 2011, 11:42 pm

      I agree, the video output looks incredible on the Kodak Zi8. I’ve seen comparisons to $3,000 video cameras and they look about the same on a computer screen.

  • Marcus Knightley December 22, 2010, 1:09 am

    Cool stuffs! As novice in the internet marketing industry having these incredible items put spice into my daily routinize activities. Really, I love to engross myself with these amazing gadgets. Looking forward for your upcoming posts.

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:05 am

      Thanks Marcus,
      I love gadgets. We just started to use Air Play to stream videos from our iPad to the Apple TV. It works great.
      It’s time to update my Internet Marketers Wish list again.
      I’ll delete all the books listed.
      I’ll add a Macbook Air, iPad 3, and iPhone 5.
      I have everything on the list but the Zi8, The awesome tube amp for music and the handy remote control unit and still recommend them or the latest model if they have been updated.

  • Steve December 22, 2010, 6:45 pm

    Facebook marketing in an hour looks interesting, I’ve done a little marketing setting up groups and fan pages but really the sky is the limit. Seems more people have facebook than telephones these days.

  • James December 22, 2010, 10:01 pm

    Electric staplers and hole punches? haha, how lazy have we become

    • Clay Franklin January 6, 2011, 9:04 pm

      Hey James, Yes I love the electric stapler and hole punch. Office work is all about ergonomics and repetitive actions can be a problem. Also as we get older with a bit of arthritis the stapler and hole punch can be a burden if used often. I have actually punched over 3,000 pages with this hole punch. I file the ebooks in binders. I am on my third electric stapler so that is why I recommended a $25 one instead of a $15 one for the durability.

  • peny December 30, 2010, 1:55 am

    Love this wishlist! I specifically want Facebook Marketing an Hour a Day by Mari Smith. I was amazed by the design of her welcome page and of course by the high PR of her page. Thanks for the share, eh.

    • Clay Franklin January 6, 2011, 9:10 pm

      Peny, another great book to get your site to look like Mari’s is the FBML Essentials book. It is a bit technical, yet provides the code for the welcome page and all things FBML customization for the Fan page. Link

  • Chris Fellows January 5, 2011, 7:34 pm

    All about the Kodak. Got one for the holidays and I’m loving it!

    • Clay Franklin January 6, 2011, 10:08 pm

      Awesome Chris. Mike “Traffic Geyser” Koenigs highly recommends the Zi8 and uses it with a small tripod and the lavaliere mic listed above. I would totally get one if I did not already have the Canon HF camcorder.

  • Jack January 6, 2011, 5:09 pm

    Wow, great list. Nice gift ideas indeed. The Amazon Kindle is the perfect post Christmas gift for my best friend who happens to be an Internet marketer. Thank you very much for sharing this excellent list.

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:08 am

      Yea the Kindles are awesome. My wife loves hers. She takes the iPad 2 and Kindle to bed almost every night. Pink cover of course.

  • Jimmy January 7, 2011, 4:20 am

    ‘Step Into The Spotlight’ is a very underrated book, and so I discovered when I found out that none of my friends had heard of it. Glad to see it up in your list!

    I’ll need to take your tip and try my hand at Facebook Marketing An Hour A Day – the social platform is proving to be very essential for my business and I need all the help I can get to master the same.

    • Clay Franklin May 29, 2011, 11:45 pm

      I listed the Facebook marketing book before I read it and after ordering it was not as impressed as I expected to be. It does provide the basics if Facebook Marketing is new for you.

  • Steve January 9, 2011, 9:01 pm

    Battery operated electric stapler? Come on now…

    Just how lazy do people think internet marketers are? lol

  • Online Writing Services January 10, 2011, 6:34 am

    Shame I missed this post before XMAS. Those are some extremely tasty gadgets.

  • search engine ranking services January 27, 2011, 4:37 am

    cool stusff. I love the Canon Poweshot G12. Plan to have one soon.

  • Lyndsey May 7, 2011, 1:49 am

    The Dragon Dictate app is also very good (and free :-))

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:11 am

      Great point Lyndsey. I tried the app first and then decided to get the mac version. I am wishing now I bought the more poserful version that also alows the transcription of digital recorders also instead of just live voice.
      I’ve been using Dragon with the AT 2020 USB mic and the Olympus digital recorder for audio. I still need to train my Dragon Naturally speaking to be even more accurate. It’s an ongoing effort. But it is amazing how well it does.

  • garmin nuvi 255w May 26, 2011, 4:16 am

    I love the Canon Poweshot G12.

  • Acne June 21, 2011, 2:56 pm

    I think Samsungs Galaxy Tab is on the top of my wishlist. I want something Android based.

  • liezel August 19, 2011, 7:11 am

    Oh man, I’ll just have to dream I would have those gadgets Situation here in my country makes the people limited of funds to get those.

  • Kredit September 2, 2011, 5:50 am

    Yes a good list. I have the Dragon Speech software but in the normal version of Windows. And I can only report the good software. But you should complete at the beginning like all the training so that the software can adapt itself to the voice. So you stay longer then the program uses all the software is better. Then it can be a very big help for long texts.

  • Nick Hurst September 13, 2011, 8:27 am

    Excellent list! I’ve actually got the older version of the Canon G12… the G10 and it’s amazing. Kinda makes the kodak video cam and canon p&s you mentioned above, the video that camera shoots is fantastic, sound quality isn’t bad either :)

    Good list though :) I want an apple TV tbh

  • Josh September 20, 2011, 11:39 am

    Amazon Kindle is decent, but can’t really compare to the business application and functionality of an ipad. I would think for an internet marketer, the ipad would be a much better choice

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:17 am

      John You are 100% correct. The kindle is wonderful to read books especially on the beach :-) My wife loves hers. I’m more of a video guy and social media guy so I use my iPad original almost every day. Now I think an Apple MAcbook Air will give me more functionality for writing articles and doing the Internet marketing stuff like sending affiliate links on Twitter and managing links with Go Try This or Amazon.

  • Andrew Clarke@VA Loans Austin September 22, 2011, 5:46 pm

    I’ve been planning to buy a computer remote but I don’t know the name of it :) I need it for my weekly presentation. Thanks for the recommendations! Starting to like your blog. Keep it up!

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:21 am

      Thanks for stopping by Andrew.
      Did you get a remote and how is it working for you?
      The SMK-link one above is still on my wish list.
      It’s the one Mike Koenig uses for his productions.

  • Liam Duffy October 5, 2011, 7:45 pm

    The new kiddle fire will do me.. nice affordable tablet for website and PDF viewing.. cant go wrong! Will it kill the ipad though?

    • Clay Franklin October 29, 2011, 12:46 am

      I agree Liam, I ordered a Kindle Fire it looks so cute LOL also to compare to the iPad and write a review here on my blog.

  • Web Design Company London October 21, 2011, 6:24 am

    This is an amazing list. Love the apple tv.

  • Jaipur Monuments October 23, 2011, 4:20 am

    My brother purchased Canon Powershot G12 for capture Jaipur sightseeing places.

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:24 am

      Awesome Jaipur,
      Leave a comment with the link to his pictures if you have it.
      I got the idea for the Canon G12 from a professional photographer on the Marketers Cruise. I forgot his name, I ‘ll have to come back when I remember it. LOL

  • Max Leaman December 20, 2011, 9:32 am

    This is a great list and I am sure many internet marketers would wish for some of these things. The cameras are all very good and they would really help those who like to market using videos.

    • Clay Franklin February 27, 2012, 1:32 am

      Thanks for stopping by Max.
      I love cameras and especially the ones on this list except the Zi8. If I wasa pro, I’d go for the new Canon D60.
      You know I sell text marketing and you could text out daily loan rates to your prospects. Just an idea call or text 408-768-7368 if you want to chat about it or check out my Facebook page at iZigg 90210. I even have a raffle there to win a trip to Cancun.

  • Personal Growth March 16, 2012, 10:31 am

    Love this wishlist! I want the Apple TV.
