There are several service providers that I have worked with for years and recommend to my clients.
I am an affiliate of some of these companies, but I only recommend companies and products that are excellent at what they do.
Client Management: Honeybook basically runs my business. Honeybook handles everything from the first inquiry from a new client, to scheduling, proposals, email, and billing. I do everything with this amazing service!
Domain Names: Dynadot has low-cost domains with free private domain registration. This is important! It prevents your personal information from being posted online with your site domain information.
Website/Blog Hosting: BigScoots Managed Hosting has the best customer service I’ve found. They have been my chosen host for the past 8 years.
WordPress Themes: StudioPress premium Genesis themes are some of the most stable, well-coded themes available. I have used them exclusively for my own sites for more than 8 years.
Updated Legal Policies: Termageddon is the only service I know of where you can get CURRENT legal policies (privacy, terms of service, & disclaimer policies) that stay updated all the time. Service is included for my Care Plan clients but recommended for everyone.
Spam Protection: CleanTalk AntiSpam protects not only your comments but also your contact forms, opt-in forms, and more from spam. This GDPR-compliant service is included for my Care Plan clients but recommended for everyone.
SEO Optimization: SEOPress is a GDPR-compliant premium SEO plugin that includes more features than Yoast (although Yoast is also fine and meets GDPR as well.) This service is included for my Care Plan clients.
