Tools I Use

👉 Website Hosting

Choosing the right host can make or break your website. It’s critical that you choose the best host for your situation. Read about the two best hosts out there.

BlueHost

If you started a new website or blog I would choose Bluehost because they are recommended by WordPress. WordPress wouldn’t risk going with a second-grade hosting company if their own reputation is on the line. Bluehost is one of the cheapest hosting companies and their customer service is spot on.

Bluehost is perfect for new sites that have low to moderate traffic volumes. They can handle large volumes too if you starting to grow your site.

WpxHosting

When you start to grow your site or blog and have traffic starting to explode, I would choose Wpx. They have extremely high bandwidth capabilities and super-fast server response time.

Wpx is more expensive, but when traffic on your site skyrockets you want to be prepared to handle the traffic influx smoothly. Wpx is for more established sites with high traffic volume.

👉 Stock Images

These are the free image sites I use to get stock images from.

👉 WordPress Plugins

  • Smush: Reduce image file sizes, improve performance and boost your SEO.
  • UpdraftPlus: Backup and restore: take backups locally, or backup to Amazon S3, Dropbox, Google Drive, Rackspace, FTP, WebDAV & email, on automatic schedules.

👉 Graphics Editors

Canva

“Canva is a simplified graphic-design tool website, founded in 2012. It uses a drag-and-drop format and provides access to photographs, vector images, graphics, and fonts. It is used by non-designers as well as professionals. The tools can be used for both web and print media design and graphics.”
