The best SEO Software is Excel. I use it for everything. Also it is required to have ToDo List software as it helps to organize your deals. And it does not matter if you provide SEO services or creating start up.
The thing is that you need to understand the basics of SEO. It is really easy. Real organic SEO consists of 3 steps: preparatory phase, internal optimization and external optimization.
All paid software can be used just as secondary tool but not as primary.
As for me, I do SEO without any software during 6 years and I do not follow positions on Google and do not count visitors.
I always do several things that help me to earn more money: I help people to resolve their issues, I do create useful articles, I create good video content for people, I do answer every question of my customer and I do love what I do.
The secrete of SEO is that there's no secret. You just need to help people and people will help you to support your project.
