Faster. Smarter. Better Tools
Our growing list of recommended 3rd-party marketing tools.
I’ve only listed resources that I’ve personally used and feel comfortable with offering as a resource.
Publish to WordPress
This plugin publishes a Google Doc to your WordPress site. Your formatting and links are transferred too.
My current host for Pushing Social. Their server is fast, the support team is tenacious, and uptime is 99.99%
Excellent host for quick business idea prototyping. Currently offers hosting for $6 – $10. Decent support and uptime.
I’ve used WPCurve for small WordPress technical tweaks and changes to our WordPress sites. They are affordable and good at what they do.
This is my favorite plugin for quickly scheduling post promotion updates on social media channels.
My “go to” theme resource. Their Genesis framework is a workhorse that does exactly what it is meant to do. Support is decent. The themes tend to be more business-oriented.
Quickly becoming my favorite Studiopress mistress. Their latest theme – Canvas is awesome offering fantastic customization options. Support is great. Their secret sauce is their sexy plugins and Woocommerce – the best free ecommerce plugin – period.
Considered to be pioneers in the wordpress theme space. The theme is sturdy and ready to go. They are still hurting from the lack of quality themes.
Absolutely brilliant piece of software. Makes creating high-conversion lead pages stupid simple.
WordPress plugin that brings major landing page creation power plus some other goodies. Maybe a little hard for rookie WordPress users to manipulate.
Excellent hosted landing page provider. You build your page with their software, host it on their servers, and use some fancy DNS routing to send people to see and convert. I loved them until my monthly bill soared north of $100. Check ‘em out if you need professional polish and don’t mind paying for it.
Online mindmapping software
Send large documents via email.
FTP software for uploading files to your web server
Zapier makes it a cinch to automate tasks by connecting two apps together. For example, you can setup a “Zap” to add all new Mailchimp subscribers to a Google Docs spreadsheet. You can automate pretty much anything you choose. Very helpful.
