There are some great IM products out there. Pick and choose the right ones and they can really make your life so much easier.
But there’s a ton of crappy products as well. Waste time with these and they can really make you pull your hair out.
Luckily, I’ve done a lot of the legwork for you, and in this post I’m going to recommend some of my favorite products and services.
Hostgator – The best solution for cheap and affordable web hosting. I’ve been using them for several years now, and I’ve been very happy with their service. The best web hosting stays out of your way, and Hostgator does this.
Genesis Theme Framework – Genesis powers many of the most popular blogs out there. It has built in hooks that make customization simple and there are lots of great child themes for it which makes it easy to design the site you really want. This site for example is using Prose child theme. If you want to take the plunge, don’t forget to grab your bonus discount.
Thrive Content Builder – Thrive content builder is an amazing wordpress plugin that gives you a super powered WordPress editor. It has drag and drop capabilities and it makes it super simple to create great looking sales and product pages. Read the full review of Thrive Content Builder over at SlickWP.
JustRetweet – Hands down the best platform for getting more Retweets, FB likes and Google plus ones. Easier to use than ViralContentBuzz but without the spam of other similar sites. I like it, because I can always find a bunch of things to share with my followers.
QuickSprout – Best blog for learning about marketing in general. Neil Patel is the master of driving traffic to your sites and I love most of his SEO articles.
Social Triggers – This is an awesome blog for Entrepreneurs. Derek Halpern is one of the very best at figuring out what makes people “tick” online.
