There are many hosting companies out there, but for a WordPress site, bluehost should definitely be at the top of anyone’s list. Bluehost is the only hosting service officially recommended by WordPress and has been the number-one recommended hosting service for their platform for almost 10 years. I love bluehost!!

 

The first platform I used was HostGator and I’m still using them! Many of my clients use them as well. Their support is second to none. Whether you are a seasoned Internet pro, or just starting out with your first website, their professional staff is there to assist you every step of the way. They are there 24/7/365 to assist you with any aspect of your hosting experience. They will take care of you.

 

My WordPress Theme of Choice for opt-in, landing, sales, and other pages. OptimizePress is the new way to create high converting landing pages, sales pages, and membership portals. A lot of the coaches, real estate agents, and even Digital Marketer are using this, so especially if you plan on having high converted, easy to use pages, you will need/want to learn this platform.

 

 

Let your prospects and customers know when you’re available to meet with them by creating time slots. With time slots, people can schedule themselves in or let the software schedule automatically based on your availability, or a combination of both. AppointmentCore lets you specify times you will be available for appointments. It also checks your calendar to automatically display only the times you’re free. You can create openings any day of the week, weekdays only, or a specific date range. Your availability will be based not just on some settings in a piece of software, but on your real-time schedule. These are just a few of the many features AppointmentCore offers!

To be successful, you’ll need the perfect tools! Here’s a list of the online business tools I use and love!

I started out using Aweber and it’s my second favorite auto-responder. You can set it up quickly and it will keep your list current and active. It’s easy to use and their support and training videos are awesome! I’m a huge fan of Aweber! When it comes to email marketing don’t skimp! Use one you can trust!
