Web Hosting

Hostgator: Hostgator is the web hosting service I use to run this website. Hostgator provides both hosting and domain name registration all in one. There’s no need to pay more for domain name registration when you’re ready to start another website. Your Hostgator account can be used to host multiple domain names with Hostgator’s Baby Plan and Business Plan. Hostgator guarantees a 99.9% uptime so you can rest assured knowing that your website will be available on the web. Their plans start at $3.95/month. It’s the most affordable and reliable web hosting service I’ve found.

WordPress Theme

Elegant Themes: Divi by Elegant Themes is the premium WordPress theme that I personally use to power this website. With the developer package or the lifetime package, you get 6 great plugins along with 87 themes to choose from to power your website. Building a website has never been easier with Elegant Themes’ drag-and-drop Divi Builder plugin. Elegant Themes allows you to create an amazing looking website without the need to learn coding. What more can you ask for?

Email Marketing

Convert Kit: When you first start off blogging, it’s okay to choose a free email marketing service over a premium service. However, like everything else, you get what you pay for. Convert Kit is the better alternative. Convert Kit is a premium email marketing service that can help you manage email lists and campaigns. Regardless of what you may have heard, email is not dead. Email is still the king of marketing. Email is more effective at acquiring new customers than any social media platform because it’s more personal than a social media platform. Start building the list now and watch the return on your investment.

Images

Deposit Photos: If you don’t have a digital camera or aren’t skilled enough to take a picture that you are proud to put on your website, Deposit Photos is for you. Deposit Photos has pictures for virtually anything you can think of and it is available to you at a very reasonable price. Most importantly, you don’t have to give attribution to Deposit Photos after you have bought their pictures. You can find many free images on the internet that don’t require an attribution. However, it won’t be long until you just can’t seem to find the perfect image for your website. That’s when Deposit Photos might just be the answer.
