Domain & Hosting
All of our clients websites that come to us looking for recommendations, are hosted on Cloudways. This is due to the simplicity that Cloudways has created for setting up hosting, and their simple one-click WordPress Installation.
Besides providing an affordable plan for hosting for as little at $3.95/month, you also receive a free domain, and even at the basic plan you get 5 free email addresses! Also, they provide outstanding customer service.
All of our sites built (Even this site) is built using Elementor Pro. This drag and drop designer theme makes designing a site very interactive, and gives us the ability to see exactly what we are designing, and we able to tweak little things along the way. The benefit with Elementor is they offer a free version, as well as a Pro version giving the ability to any business owner to get started with the Free version and update to Pro if they see fit.
We were going between MULTIPLE websites just to maintain my clients, their invoices, emails, where they are at in their design/site, then we were introduced to Dubsado. This LIFESAVER of a website has it all in one place, and allows you to do a lot of automation with prewritten emails, and autofilling contracts.
