I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can rely upon if you ever want to create a website similar to this. I’ll add to it as I learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future I will reference this page quite often.
[Another website on how to become a home health aide was developed using the same techniques.]
Many mistakes were made on my part and along the way I spend money (well, wasted money) on resources that turned out to be lackluster or I did not need. I paid for my mistakes. I’d like to pay-it-forward so others can be more efficient than me!
Disclosure: Some of the links are affiliate links, and at no additional cost to you, I will earn a commission if you decide to make a purchase. Please understand that I have experience with all of these companies, and I recommend them because they are helpful and useful, not because of the small commissions I make if you decide to buy something.
These are the five that you should know about. I find myself recommending these resources again and again. I use them because they make my life easier, and I’m confident you’ll agree too.
Bluehost: All of my websites are hosted on Bluehost. Why? Because it’s incredibly easy to use with 1-click automatic WordPress installation and excellent customer service via phone or chat. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND using Bluehost. Also, you can use the same hosting account for multiple domains if you plan on creating more websites. Click here to get started with Bluehost – some great promotions running now.
AWeber: Among the very first lessons you should learn when building a website – build an email list of users. Period. This may not make sense right away though you will eventually discover that reaching out to your users will prove to be invaluable. You can create newsletters, broadcast emails announcements on new products and/or services you have to offer.
[For clarity – AWeber is the application that maintains the email subscribers and sends out your emails and LeadPages helps you build the list of subscribers – used together they will help you build the list super fast!!]
Build the list fast and easy with Aweber. No one does a better job and has better customer service than AWeber – thta’s the reason they are #1 in the space. For More information on building an email list with AWeber – click here!
LeadPages: Extremely easy-to-use and just a great application for creating high-quality landing pages and squeeze pages. LeadPages will help you convert viewers into subscribers. It works both with WordPress and non-WordPress sites alike.
Building an email list of users (see AWeber above) from the very first launch of your website will prove invaluable – LeadPages walks you through to create professional looking “landing pages” converting users to subscribers. More information on LeadPages can be found here – you will not be sorry!
