Business and Blogging in the online world doesn’t only require time and a set amount of skills but also resources and behind the scenes tools that make the magic happen. Here are a few of the amazing programs and services I use.

WEBSITE MUST HAVES

CircleofWealth~Destiny Defined’s ~Business Start-Up Tools & Preferred  Resources   for Your Hosting Providers 

*BlueHost (Good)

I have self-hosted my website with them and it’s so worth it. It’s so much better than having a free WordPress website and I got the domain name for free the first year. I honestly recommend them if you’re thinking of taking blogging seriously and if you want a professional website.

BlueHost Affiliate Link Persistants

In 2018, Bluehost is one of the top web hosting providers and it received many awards for it. You can start your own personal blog with Bluehost for as low as $3.95 per month (this price is a special discount following my link!). You will receive a free domain for free if you sign up using my link (for plans including 12 months or longer).

However, I have since outgrown them and moved over to *In Motion Hosting.

*In Motion is my current hosting provider.

Hosting (Best): InMotion Hosting

As my business grew, I was in need of a more robust hosting company for my websites. InMotion Hosting is the choice for me because of the high level of support they provide, quality, and speed of hosting services. They have special plans just for WordPress sites which makes them an even better choice for bloggers and online business owners

When it comes to managing many websites for myself and for Clients, they are most superior. Customer Service is 24/7. Have a look, I have negotiated a better rate for all of our Subscribers by using this link here.

CircleofWealth~Destiny Defined’s ~Business Start-Up Tools & Preferred  Resources  for Our Preferred Domain Name Providers 

*Name Cheapnamecheap affiliate link

Domain name service providers like NameCheap gets the job done, cheaply. As you know, having a custom domain name is so important (no “worpdress.com” or “blogger.com” at the end). Not only does that make your blog look super professional, but it’s easier to remember and search when your readers want to come back and read your latest posts. If your domain name isn’t included with the hosting, NameCheap is a super affordable place to buy your domain name from. Wow! Here is my negotiated rate for you I think I have paid 9.00 for mine…

Register your domain names from $0.88

 

CircleofWealth~Destiny Defined’s ~Business Start-Up Tools & Preferred  Resources for Customer Relationship Management Online Platform:

 WordPress

If you are blogging or want your own website, WordPress is the must-have tool to use. It is easy to install and has a lot of plugins to make your website look great!

 

CircleofWealth~Destiny Defined’s ~ Preferred  Resources for WordPress Templates: 

ThemeForest

Everyone Loves Themes! there are so many! My favorite place to get themes for my Free WordPress site is, ThemeForest. The themes look great, are easy to install, and come with fantastic directions.

 Astra is my Newest Love!  CircleofWealth is using it.

A very workable straight outta the box, free and pro theme.

 for Tech Support:

 WP Radius

WP Radius is a technical support service for WordPress owners. What does that mean exactly? They will help you with any issue you have on your WordPress site big or small. They will add plugins, tell you how to make it run faster, move menus, add multiple logos, and basically anything you ask for. Even better? They are lightning fast. This is a must-have for every WordPress site owner. We love the techs at WP Radius!

 for Tech Security

Security: Sucuri 

Sucuri is the protector of all of my websites. Sucuri monitors my websites for malicious spyware and guards against hackers. If you have a website that is at the core of your business, you must have Sucuri to protect you.

Securi Security- eCommerce Website Security

Security is an ongoing battle on the web. And for your online store or eCommerce site, it’s critical that both your content and your visitors are protected. That is why I recommend  Securi Security.

WordPress gets a bad wrap around being secure. But in reality, it’s not WordPress. It’s a lot of other factors. And there is nothing worse than finding that your site has been compromised in one way or another. Or even worse, Google has blacklisted it. And from experience I can tell you once something like that has happened, you want someone who knows exactly what they are doing. So whether your site suddenly is attacked or infected, or you want to prevent something like this from happening, check out my friends and I promise, they will take care of you.

You Can Read all about my choice of using WordPress and Why You Should Choose WordPress  on my other  blog.

for  Sharing your Content

Email Opt-In (Good): SumoMe 

SumoMe has great services for collecting email addresses on your website, as well as Social Share buttons that you can place anywhere on your site. The thing that I love about SumoMe is their opt-in pop-up forms aren’t obnoxious and don’t get in the way of trying to read content on my site.

If you are looking for a free alternative to the email options. I also love the how much control I have over the color of my buttons that match my site as well as the location options.

We have Sumo Me on our Persistants.com site as it helps us share our content socially, on Facebook and Pinterest. Have a look and please share!
