I was sick of paying huge amounts of money for landing pages, I knew there had to be an alternative that was more cost efficient.
Finding Thrive Architect (formerly known as Thrive Landing Pages) did just that. You can use it for nearly everything on your WordPress site: landing pages, sales pages, blog posts. I used it to create this page. This has to be one of my favourite tools I use
I am now creating beautiful landing pages with only a one time cost, saving hundreds of $$ a year
Hosting & Domain Names
Siteground is one of the top rated hosting companies in the world.
I had been using Hostgator for the last few years, however whenever I got a problem I was waiting 30 minutes minimum to speak with someone and I was feeling that they really didn’t value me as a customer. I have been using Siteground for the last few months and I am amazed at how quickly their customer service is. Normally I am put through to someone on live chat within 30 seconds, longest has been 2 minutes.
By signing up through my link for hosting you receive up to 60% off and a free domain name. Siteground are constantly updating WordPress which helps with keeping your software up to date for the latest security threats.
Whether your starting your own blog, a website, a squeeze page or an online store you will need a domain name. After using many different services I buy all my domains from Name cheap
I use Name Cheap for all of my domain names as I prefer to keep all my domains in one place and the value I receive is worth every penny . Name Cheap gives you free Whois Guard for the first year, and has an amazing service. Whois Guard protects you email from a crazy amount of spam you will receive if you didn’t have it. Linking your WordPress site, setting up domain, email forwarding, or using any of the many other services offered by Name Cheap is very simple too.
There customer support is outstanding, whenever I have a problem I don’t understand I go to them on live chat and they find a solution.
Dropbox is a cloud storage service where you can store your files. I use this mainly to store my lead magnets and deliver my free bonuses for my new subscribers.
Let's say for example I want to send multiple people my new PDF book, all I have to do is send them the link and job done!
The best thing about this is they give you 5GB Free which is more than enough to get you started.
When I need small tasks done within my business I outsource them, I recently used Fiverr to create my logo, I was quickly able to find 5 people to do different designs and I could select the best one I liked.
To Do Ist has revolutionised the way I run my day, I can note everything I need to do for the day into it and do those tasks based on the time of day.
