During online courses and in-person events, I’m asked which services I use for business start-up and growth. Here’s what I count on, and perhaps these programs, which are affiliate resources, will help you, too.

Be sure to research every program, whether here or anywhere online, before starting services.

Visit this page periodically for updates.

Hosting

Web Hosting

SiteGround – I temporarily strayed from this hosting company when they stopped using a code I needed for my website, but I’m back with them and am pleased. What’s truly remarkable is their service available by email or chat.

Bluehost – I’ve heard good things about Bluehost, another acceptable hosting company.

Weebly - Websites, eCommerce & Marketing in one place.

Weebly – There’s lots of talk about the ease of using this host for websites. Check out their information to see if this is the one for you.

Domain

Namesilo – Half the price of the one I was with for too many years. Plus more benefits. Plus more pluses. Yes.

Build Your Website with Namecheap - Get Privacy Protection Free Forever

Namecheap – Why pay a lot when you can pay a little for a domain? See what this company offers, which includes more than capturing your online name.

Business Structure

IncFile – Your best business setup is determined according to the state or country in which you live. When you get official information, it’s time to make setup easy. Check out IncFile for support.

Backup

pCloud – Oh please, don’t do one thing online or on your computer without having a way to protect your intellectual property. Even if you have an external drive attached to your computer or laptop, cloud backup is mandatory, and after spending $995 due to a failed external drive, I know this personally.

Social Media

SocialBee – Posting the same message to every social media program is exhausting, isn’t it? That’s where SocialBee excels for me. I add content within the program, tell it where I want it posted, and it’s done – automatically. A social time saver worth every penny so you make dollars.

Accounting

FreshBooks – You cannot bury your head in the sand when it comes to income and expenses, assets and liabilities, and just how much you’re making. Try this program for ease.

Outsource Help

Fiverr – You know all those little things you want done, like finding corporations in your area, creating a stunning logo, and making videos using photos on your website? Turn to Fiverr for this and more. So much eager, expert talent here.
