  • Optimize Press – One of the most economical pricing around. I use OptimizePress and recommend this to others.

  • Siteground – The most reliable hosting service.  I’ve used them for over 3 years now and I’m happy. Their price has gone up since I started but if you ever have a problem and need to talk to customer service, they are around 24/7.  I’ve spoken to live support help 99% of the time.
  • GoDaddy – A popular hosting and you can buy domains here too.

Page Builders

Beaver Builder  – Beaver Builder is one of the easiest page builder you can use.

Elementor – They have a free and paid version.  The free version has surprisingly a lot of features. 

Writing and Blogging

The World’s Best Automated Proofreader  –  If You write and need help with grammar or proofreading, one of the best tools to use is Grammarly.  They also check for plagiarism. 

Graphics

Canva – They have a free and pro paid version. Easy to learn and use.  They’ve added new features such as making the background disappear, but I believe it’s for pro users only.  I use the pro version because resizing is easy especially when you use it for social media and E-books, etc.  They offer print versions you can order directly from Canva.

PicMonkey – They have very good photo editing and design tools.  There is a paid version.

Pixlr – They also have very good photo editor and designing tools and it’s free.
