We only recommend services that we actually use ourselves. Here are the tools we use and love! 🙂

MailChimp (obviously!) – we are in love with MailChimp. Great platform, great company, great people. If you haven’t already, you need to sign up for a free account now and check them out. We can help you take advantage of all their powerful features – like “automations” and segmenting for more targeted and more effective marketing.

JustUno – we’ve partnered with JustUno because they are the best of breed. MailChimp helps you get the most out of your email list . . . JustUno helps you build your list! They have some really cool tools to help get people on your MailChimp list, without doing any extra work – just by leveraging the traffic you’re already getting.

Squeeze page and exit pop-up software. We like two additional tools for capturing leads and building your list. LeadPages is our prefered “squeeze page” tool and Optin Monster is what we use for exit pop-ups.

WP Engine – this is the web host we use. We’ve tried dozens (maybe more) of web hosts and these guys are the best. They specialize in WordPress hosting, take care of all the security, backups & monitoring, and they’re available 24/7 for world-class support. Give them a try today and they’ll migrate you from your current host for free!

For ongoing simple WordPress support, we recommend WP Curve. This is not to get your site set up or make major changes, but if you want a team on call 24/7 for small stuff, this is a great solution.

Xero – awesome online accounting and invoicing software. Plus they integration with Zapier so you can move data to and from them into other system easily.

Zapier – data syncing service that integrates with over 400 other web services so you can easily move data from one place to another and back.

Stripe – the best payment processor on the planet.
