Web Hosting Solutions
BlueHost Web Hosting
BlueHost is a great web hosting for beginner bloggers and marketers, right now. They offer a ton of features and also have an amazing support team. This is a MUST-HAVE service if you are just starting your blogging journey.
WPX WordPress Hosting
This is the managed WordPress hosting we use. It is fast, powerful and has great customer support. Once your business outgrows BlueHost you can make the shift to WPX hosting. It is the next level hosting for bloggers, that is also affordable.
Video Creation And Editing Tools
This is a new video animation tool using which you can create incredible videos within minutes. With this app, you can create complex animations and effects with click, drag & drop functionality. It has a ton of cool features. The app looks quite impressive and is available for a one-time price.
This is the whiteboard animation video creator we currently recommend. It can create stunning whiteboard, blackboard, glass board and other custom animated videos. Best of all, it only costs $47 for lifetime access.
An amazing AI-powered video creation tool. Has the best auto-voice technology and also gives free access to millions of stock images, music and videos at no extra cost. The possibilities are limitless with Vidnami. We just love this tool.
Astra is the WordPress theme we use on most of our sites. This is arguably one of the best WordPress themes right now. It is offered under a freemium license. You can download the free as well as the pro version of Astra, using the link below.
GeneratePress is an ultra-lightweight WordPress theme which is very fast and secure. Like the Astra theme, GeneratePress too follows a freemium model. You can get GeneratePress for free and use it on your websites.
Web Site Security and Back Up
We use JetPack premium to secure and back up our websites. It offers daily malware scanning, spam protection, automated backups, site monetization options, SEO tools and more.
Even though we use JetPack premium on our blogs to secure them, it’s only our second line of defence. Our website’s primary line of defence is provided by our hosting itself, at no extra cost. We get all the security features that JetPack gives us and some more, with our WPX managed WordPress hosting, for no extra cost.
Unlimited Video Hosting
Although we use YouTube for some of our videos, most are hosted on WordPress servers using the JetPack premium service. The unlimited video hosting feature is included with the backup and security feature provided by JetPack. We don’t need to pay anything extra to avail unlimited video hosting. Also, it is ad-free and fast. It costs only $9 per month.
Landing Page Creators
This is a page builder plugin exclusively meant for WordPress. It is completely drag-and-drop and can create beautiful landing pages, email capture pages, sales pages, contact pages, webinar registration pages and more. The best of all, Thrive architect is available for a one-time fee, that gives you lifetime updates.
LeadPages is a more refined page builder. This isn’t exclusively meant for WordPress sites. In fact, you don’t need a website to use LeadPages. Also, you don’t even need to host the pages you build using LeadPages. Everything is taken care of by LeadPages itself.
Email Marketing and Autoresponders
This is the email marketing tool we use at present. They have been in the business of email marketing for many years now. So they know what they are doing. Their autoresponder is powerful, so is their email templates collection. GetResponse also offers intuitive landing page builder at no extra cost. They also host your landing pages.
This is the second email service provider we recommend for beginners They have a free plan with all the important features like autoresponder function, landing page builder and more. But we have found that their delivery rates are not as good as some other top players out there. However, you can get started with this service and later move to a better one, when your business grows.
Stock Unlimited is a stock repository website that allows you to download and use stock images, videos, audio files, vectors and more. They don’t have any restrictions on the number of downloads.
