Website, Hosting & Email

CMS

WordPress

WordPress - the World's most popular open source software that powers a third of all websites on the web. Originally a blogging tool, WordPress is a powerful website builder and robust content management system (CMS). Using WordPress with your own hosting will ensure you can have full control and ownership of your website.


To get started you'll need a host for your Worpdress website. WPX Hosting can set you up with the latest version of WordPress - it is not something you have to install yourself.

HOSTING

WPX Hosting

Own and control your hosting. Don't leave it to your web guy, a friend or even your business partner. Control it so you have no problems or disasters in the future.  


After using several hosting companies and paying up to $100+ a month in hosting fees without a doubt, WPX Hosting is the best value for performance tailored WordPress hosting I have used to date.


Why I use WPX Hosting:

  • Outstanding customer support
  • Incredibly fast
  • Free SSL certificates for life
  • Super secure
  • Staging area
  • Unlimited site migrations
  • Affordable
THEME

ASTRA PRO

This is the theme I had been wanting for years - a blank canvas I could use to create the website of my vision (dreams).


I like Astra Theme for or two main reasons - it is extremely customizable and very fast loading. The customizer makes it easy to design site and page layouts and tweak menus, sidebars, fonts, colours etc without needing to know any coding. 


Why I use ASTRA PRO Theme:

  • Easily to customize without code
  • Made for page builders - Thrive Architect
  • Super fast performance - loads in half a second
  • SEO friendly markup
  • Hooks - to inject customer code and CTAs

I use it on all my sites. Grab the FREE version to start with..

Trello

A productivity tool based on the Japanese Kanban method, Trello is perfect to manage tasks and get a running overview of where your projects are at.


Best of all, it is the best free!


It is a joy to use and requires very little effort to set up and add collaborators. Adding and managing columns, cards, and labels is as simple as clicking, dragging and dropping.

Make sure you download the app as well.

EMAIL MARKETING
