Recommendations

Over the years, I’ve tested many software and services in search of the technology and people that can help me build my business. After hours of live demos, days of research, weeks of free trials, and months of testing, I’ve finally come around to narrowing down the best tools available today. Here they are:

My Website

Website Platform – For websites, I use WordPress. Why don’t I use any other platform for websites? It’s simple – WordPress is the most customizable and scalable platform. If you have a long term vision for your business to grow, you wouldn’t want to start with a website platform then switch to others as you grow. That would be a huge pain. Instead, you can simply decide on WordPress in the very beginning so that you can edit, pivot, and scale as needed at any level.

Website & Email Hosting – Finding a reliable website host was one of the most daunting tasks I’ve come across. There have been days where my site was fast, but there have also been days where my site was a blank white screen where no one could access the information I had on there! I must say that there is no website host that is 100% reliable. In fact, most web hosting companies only guarantee up to 99.99% in the SLA. However, the best host I’ve used for the best price is A2 Hosting.

Website Builder – Gone are the days of needing a highly-skilled coder to design the website of your dreams. Nowadays, there are website builders that are simply WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get). In addition, these WYSIWYG builders are also drag and drop, which means you can simply click and place any picture, video or text on your website without the hassle of needing to know code. My favorite WordPress website builder happens to also be the most versatile and conversion-focused – Thrive Architect.
