Blue Host – This is actually the provider WE use and put most of our sites on. Their offerings and customer support are INCREDIBLE. We got $150 in Adsense and Bing credits when we signed up and tons of free tools that enhance the user experience of our site. Plus, they offer a FREE domain with a new account. Perfect for start-ups.
Site Ground – This is a fantastic resource for those of you looking for dedicated WordPress hosting. Not only do you get a host, but you get a FREE template installation and fanatical customer support. While they don’t exactly offer up the same support you get in Blue Host inasmuch as advertising credits, what they do offer is a hands off, hands free solution for anyone who isn’t tech (or WordPress) savvy.
Theme Isle – Fantastically put together themes and extra options and goodies.
SEARCH ENGINE SUBMISSION
Entire Web – It’s no secret that once you have a site, you’ll need to submit it to search engines this helps your basic SEO. This is one resource I LOVE. It’s fast, it’s efficient and it’s FREE.
Get Response – We use Get Response for both our email marketing, course subscriptions, newsletters, product announcements, landing pages and much, much more. At what we pay, this is a bargain! Get yours NOW.
Mail Chimp – Good, free tool for up to 2,000 subscribers. However, they don’t like it when you put advertising in your emails and I have seen several accounts be deactivated for this. Still, a good, free tool for basic email campaigns and hobby bloggers.
