Website Hosting

  • Bluehost: I have used various hosting providers (I will not name them all), but thus far, I have had the best service with BlueHost.  I will not say they are perfect (who is), but when I do have a problem, they are quick to resolve the issue. I use them as my host server for my site and many of my clients. 

Business Phone Line

  • Google Voice: Need a business phone line? Google Voice is a FREE way to set-up a local business phone number that reroutes to your landline or cell phone. It also allows you to have a personalized business voicemail.

Email Marketing

  • Mailchimp: is used for collecting lists and distributing newsletters. Mailchimp is great for email marketing campaigns. It’s a good way to get started collecting emails on a budget because its FREE until you reach 2,000 subscribers. They offer responsive templates that make getting started easy.
