BombBomb - I've found BombBomb to be the best in providing simple, yet powerful, tools to connect with your audience via email. They specialize in video email but I use their services for HTML and text emails in my campaigns as well. I'm a firm believer in the power of email marketing and BombBomb is an excellent partner to reach out to new customers and keep in touch with current and past customers.
Business On Tapp - I found this app for my Android in the beginning of 2015 and it has been a great idea generator for some of my emails and articles. It is also a good way to stay in touch with what is going in the world of entrepreneurs and small businesses.
Dollar Shave Club - When you sign up with Dollar Shave Club you get your own affiliate link but more than that, you can experience a great shave and look your best. I tried the two-blade but prefer the four-blade razor and am thrilled over their shave butter!
Dropbox - Dropbox is my favorite online storage service. I store most of my work on Dropbox and am able to access it from my computers, phone, or tablet. Editing documents, automatically adding photos, and showing off videos from anywhere is easy. And I can share work with my clients like we're using a single computer. Everything's automatically private, so I control who sees what. One of the best services I subscribe to.
Evernote - Evernote is one of my favorite way to keep organized and productive. I can use it on my desktop, laptop and smartphone.
HootSuite - HootSuite is my favorite platform for managing my social media postings as well as those of my clients. It helps me keep it all together!
MightyText - MightyText is my favorite way to text without using my phone. I do it right from my desktop/laptop computers and can even do it through my Gmail account. This is a great way to be efficiently communicating via texting if you can't text quickly on your phone.
Zapier - Zapier lets web apps (Evernote, Dropbox, Gmail, etc) talk to each other. Don't waste another second or dollar creating complicated integrations systems. Use Zapier to automate the apps you and your team are already using daily. I enjoy the ease in connecting one web app to another to accomplish complex tasks and make me look like a super hero when delivering services to my clients.
Bluehost - In my opinion, Bluehost provides the best value in the world of small business hosting. I've been using Bluehost services beginning in mid 2008. They are in Utah and have very good customer service (email, phone, and chat).
ManageWP - If you manage multiple WordPress sites you must check out ManageWP. This service cuts down on a lot of steps to manage many WordPress websites. I can update versions of WordPress and plugins for several websites through one control panel. It is a fantastic savings on my time.
Website Magazine - I've been very impressed with Website Magazine over the years. You can expect to find some of the newest techniques for designing and marketing your website. I always look forward to getting my next copy.
WordPress - This is simply the best Blog Publishing Platform available and I always use WordPress in creating all my websites. It is free, highly customizable and has an incredible support system. Make sure you click the link and go to the .org site - NOT the .com site.
