MY TOP RECOMMENDATIONS
This page is a carefully crafted and tested list of tools and resources I personally use and recommend. It can be confusing to wade through all the products out there. Have you ever bought a product online with your hard-earned money only to find that it doesn’t deliver what it promised? Or a few days later you find a better product online with features that do exactly what you want?
This contains affiliate links. See the full disclosure here.
Thankfully, you don’t have to go through all those buyer’s trauma. I’ve compiled a list of tested products and resources that have served me well. I’ve used every item mentioned here, from email marketing to web hosting to a solid domain name registrar.
Namecheap is the leading domain registrar that offers secure, high-performing and reliable domain names, coupled with the fact that the cost is actually cheap.
SiteGround is the fastest web host I’m using right now. Apart from the fact that they provide stellar support, SiteGround is built to increase your website speed. It has a feature that comes on all pricing plans above SiteGround StartUp called SG Optimizer which includes SuperCacher. It enables caching for WordPress sites that translate into a super speedy loading site.
Constant Contact has advanced email marketing features that experienced digital marketers will find extremely useful. Online entrepreneurs that wish to take their Customer Relationship Management a step further will find tools built into this marketing software like email automation, tracking, dynamic signup forms, surveys, polls, and donation invaluable. Plus, the 98% deliverability rate of emails sent is truly remarkable.
ConvertKit comes with features I find really strategic like email segmentation, A/B Split testing, responsive email design for both desktop and mobile users and lots more. What I really like the most about ConvertKit is the feature that allows you to resend emails to subscribers that didn’t open the first time.
Aweber is the email marketing tool most bloggers started out with. It is designed to create professional-looking emails with automated autoresponders, insightful tracking of email campaigns, and other cool features added to it.
