A list of my preferred software and services.
ActiveCampaign: Pound for Pound the best Marketing Automation Platform. Get out of the mindset of just sending newsletters with low open rates and even lower click rates. Run intelligent high performing digital maketing campaigns via email, sms, facebook, webtracking, and more. I have tried over a dozen and based on integration, ease of use, support, and pricing ActiveCampaign is what I use and the one I recommend. You see they are no trying to do everything. Instead they focus on the automation and itegreatin of markerting needs and outperform the crowd.
GeneratePress: A fast, flexible, and secure “friendly” multipurpose WordPress theme and starter templates. It is fast, secure, user-friendly (deep integration with WordPress customizer, designer-friendly (starter templates and works great with page builder plugins), developer-friendly (lots of hooks and responsive support), SEO-friendly (adheres to best practices), wallet-friendly (low cost with unlimited sites and reduced and optional annual price).
Presto Player and BunnyNet for WordPress video hosting. More affordable and great marketing abilities for your videos. Also works with youtube, vimeo, and local storage.
Beaver Builder: My preferred page builder because when the plugin is disabled your content is still legible and transferable. Other builders rely on WordPress shortcodes that are slower and lock you into that product without inputting your content.
Cloudways: The best cloud hosting company for the money. I have been searching for years for a host like this. All my web development projects are with cloudways. wordpress and custom php.
Constant Contact Email Marketing: Long time industry leader with builtin integration into Goldmine CRM. Generous 30-day free trial period.
Rackspace: Affordable alternative to Hosted Exchange and G-Suite if all you need it spam free email. $1-2/month per inbox. But they also have exchange email for less than competitors. Great support.
Gravity Forms: Powerful form software that can turn your website into a functional data gathering and integrate application.
Transaction Pro Importer: Import almost ANYTHING into Intuit QuickBooks (desktop, server, and online versions).
iDrive – Cloud Backup – One account, Multiple Computers/Devices, plenty of storage, one low annual expense.
EverWebinar: Webinars on demand are scalable and can have a higher conversion than live webinars. Everwebinar is a purpose-built solution for just recorded webinars, has great features, lots of integrations available, and is a great value.
