Products and Services I Use (and sometimes love) and Affiliate Links
There are thousands of services, products and plug-ins developed for the WordPress community. Over the past couple of years, I have found some that I rely on to run my business and I want to give them recognition here. There are even a couple that have affiliate programs in which I participate. What does this mean? If you visit a product or service provider through my special link and make a purchase, I get compensated. Not enough to make a living on, really it’s just enough to feed my jellybean addiction. So, my sugar high thanks you in advance!
Web Hosting/Domain Purchasing
I fell into creating my first website by necessity. My first and favorite client (you always have a special place in your heart for your first, right?) needed a new site since her expensive real estate site was a hot mess. An expensive hot mess. After doing extensive research on replacements, I decided that I could save a ton of money if I just did it myself. I couldn’t have done it without a supportive web host since I only knew about the content side of websites and really not much about what makes them work. Since day one, BlueHost’s sales and service have been amazing. They make hosting easy with all the tools and services a novice or expert could ever want or need. For me, all the bells and whistles would have been useless without good guidance. Enter the BlueHost ‘Knowledgebase’ self-help learning center. It provides detailed instruction and a ton of videos on the processes you need to know to create and manage websites. I’ve had dealings with the backend operations of other services because of clients (inMotion, GoDaddy, Network Solutions) and am always grateful
When you need a real person to help, they have first-class customer phone support, too. With skill and kindness they have helped me get through issues both great and small whether it was 3am or 3pm. If you click the BlueHost box you’ll get a great price on web hosting (you can search for and buy domains, too) and I can put some change in my jellybean jar.
