There are a lot of decisions to make when setting your business up for marketing online. It's important to choose the right ones so that you get the services you need without wasting money on things you don't need. Below are some tools of the trade I personally recommend. (Many of these are affiliate links, so I may get a commission if you make a purchase — but it won't cost you anything extra.) If you'd like personal advice on which products are best for you, contact me!
I love all of Thrive’s products. Thrive makes setting up a beautiful WordPress site a breeze. Lead generation and landing pages? They've got it. They offer an annual membership that includes all off their products plus tech support, and I can't recommend it strongly enough.
Active Campaign is my email service provider. Use it to increase engagement, convert more customers, and grow your business faster with smart email marketing, intelligent marketing automation, and automated sales pipelines.
I’ve used DreamHost to host my websites for more than 15 years. They’re reliable and consistent, and their tech support is quick and helpful. They also make it really easy to install WordPress.
I register all of my domains through GoDaddy. It’s quick, it’s easy, and they have great customer service. (In fact, when I once found myself in a difficult situation regarding ownership of a domain, they were great to work with and helped me solve the problem.)
I use WordPress as the foundation for all of my websites these days. WordPress began as blogging software and has grown into a robust content management solution. The best part? It’s free, and it’s open source. You can install WordPress on your website by working with your hosting provider (I like DreamHost).
