Not sure about what you need? Or what provider will let you bring the bacon home?
We've put together a list of our most trusted resources and service providers.
You'll likely be using Google Analytics on your website, in that case, why create yet another account just for your domain name. Consolidate.
*If you'll be using Bluehost or Stablehost, you'll have the option to register your domain with those accounts as well.
For larger websites with a lot of traffic, we highly recommend using WP Engine. The security is better, the page load time is better, and it makes maintaining and updating the website easier and quicker.
Google Apps for Work
If you'll be hosting with WP Engine and/or using your email@example.com email extensively, it's best to have a dedicated email service. Our favorite is Google Apps! The spam filter works the same as any @google.com email, 30GB of cloud storage per user, plus some powerful document tools and file syncing. Don't let your important emails get undelivered because of blacklisting!
MailChimp for Email Marketing
Growing a listing of subscribers is a must use tool and free (at first)! Why not just use your regular old email? For one, it's usually against the terms and conditions you agreed to email blast hundreds of people. And, secondly, you're almost guaranteed to get blacklisted - meaning the next time you send out emails, they'll already be marked as spam and likely never received. There are plenty of other services out there comparable to this, but MailChimp is free for the first 2,000 subscribers.
Business Cards & Print
Moo is an amazing company producing high quality print pieces. From mini cards (for the eco friendly crowd) to the high tech NFC chipped cards. Let us know if you'd like a custom design to match your branding and website!
Do you usually keep your passwords on a sticky note and stuck to your monitor? Or, is your password list growing and starting to be a hassle to keep track of? If someone breaks into your home and takes your computer, then they'll surely want to check out those accounts that apparently are so important to be stuck to your computer screen. Keep them safe and organized using one master password.
