Below is a list of vendors I use and other tools I recommend. Some of these are affiliate links…just so you know
Mailing List Services
The reason I recommend Mail Chimp is because for beginner it’s free for the first 1,000 subscribers. After that the prices are very reasonable and the options are excellent. Plus the really cool thing is it’s easy to use and it makes me laugh…sometimes hysterically.
Absolutely the best hosting provider I’ve ever used. I’ve used probably 10+ others in my last 10 years as a web developer and nothing beats hostgator. I’m mean…I’m sure there are others, but none better.
Goal Setting & Accomplishment
A great program that takes you through a lesson a day, plus accountabiltity and much more. I love the additional little things that come with this program such as wallpapers, screensavers, a little animated guy that pops up every day to remind you of your goals. A must do for everyone.
The Unified Tribe – I use this syndication system and it has dramatically increased my traffic and optins to my mailing list.
Daisy Avenue Designs (that’s me BTW) but I’m not taking on many new clients these days. Feel free to check in with me though…
