WordPress Themes:

I know how hard it can be to locate the perfect or right theme for our businesses, but Elegant Themes has come along way.  Plus their latest theme, Divi, has had a huge makeover and I love working with it.  Don’t forget the other themes they offer as well.

Ecommerce Platforms:

Shopify: (Try for FREE – limited time)  Many people are ready to start an ecommerce shopping environment that is easy to learn and use as well as a way to keep track of inventory, taxes and more!  Shopify has truly made it possible.  I have either created a Shopify website or I maintain the site for updating.

Website Hosting:

Siteground:  I have been a GoDaddy customer for quite sometime (still am I have several domains with them) and for the last year I started to see issues and too many calls to customer service on the ONE hosting account I had.  In the many Facebook groups I’m a member of Siteground was always mentioned with great reviews for hosting.  I took the plunge – hosting for a year, transferred my main domain over, grabbed the malware/hack package, SSL certificate and now have my site on a dedicated IP.  WHOAH what an improvement on my site!  Plus customer service excellent!  Not that GoDaddy has it, but I love the option to chat, call or send in a support ticket.  If you are ready to move your site from your hosting or need hosting – sign up with Siteground today!

 

Password Storage and more:

LastPass:  I can’t say enough about LastPass!  I have their app as my Chrome Extension and their app installed on my cell phone and tablet.  It stores all my passwords, encrypts them and I can request that LastPass create the password for me right inside where I’m setting up my account.  Create folders to organize your passwords by topic or type.  I have several clients that have shared their passwords with me – I can see the login, but I can’t see the password and I have NO way of changing said password.  It’s free, but for $12 a year and the extra features listed above not a bad price.
