Resources and Recommendations
Last update: 7/29/2023
On this page, you'll find some recommendations for tools and partners that I personally use myself (unless noted otherwise, in rare cases). We are affiliates for companies that we believe in, meaning that if you end up purchasing one of these products through our affiliate link, we get a small kickback (thank you!)
We recommend SiteGround for most of our clients who are in need of a host for their website. This has been our primary host (and is behind this particular website as well), and the support and service has always been fantastic. They're very user-friendly for beginners as well as advanced users, which is no small feat!
WordPress is the platform we build all websites on, and the one we highly recommend. It's also free and open source, meaning that you own your own website and have full control over it (as opposed to services like Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, etc). Most hosting services now include a one-click WordPress installation, and we highly recommend it.
Beaver Builder is the foundational theme and plugin we use for many of our website builds, so of course it's also a huge favorite for many reasons. It's a more advanced option than some other page builders, so we recommend this for anybody who is interested in actually building their own website and learning website design and/or development. The community around Beaver Builder is phenomenal, and there are so many training resources.
This is an incredible WordPress plugin for beginners and advanced users alike. We highly recommend this for anybody needing forms beyond the basic contact forms, because this one can do it all. Registrations, log-ins, even some e-commerce solutions, and really anything you can think of that requires a form, all in one plugin.
