Hey there! I often get asked about what books, products and services I use and recommend, so I decided to put together a page with all the information in one place.
It has taken me quite sometime to single out the best of the best.
Just a disclaimer – a few of these are affiliate links (aka I partnered with the company because I use the product and proudly endorse them – so I do receive a commission if you pay to sign up).
Here are the tools to help you make you more effective and your message ultra attractive.
Online Presence – Blogging
Domain.com – Domain Provider – excellent customer service. Before you buy your first domain, refer to my blog post “Domain Selection & Set-up“.
LiquidWed is a leading provider of web hosting. Seriously these guys are amazing! We recently transferred from Hostgator to LiquidWeb and could not be happier! Not sure if you need hosting? Check out my “How to Start a Successful Blog” training.
