I used to be a construction worker, so I understand the value in having the correct tools for the job in hand.
And it's absolutely no different when it comes to Blogging.
Blogging can be tough, so its important to be as effortlessly efficient as possible. Lets face it, we all want an easy life don't we!?
Don't do things the hard way, do them the correct way with the right tools.....
There's a reason why WordPress officially recommends Bluehost more than any other hosting service.
They've been working with WordPress since 2005 to create the most user friendly service, and they host millions of websites online already. You're site will not only run faster, but the setup process is super easy, and their 24/7 customer support is awesome. Besides - if you decide to go with Bluehost and you're not happy... they'll give you your money back.
They're the Top Dawgz, everyone knows it, and thats who I'd strongly recommend you use.
When it came to managing my subscribers lists and creating content for my followers, I was pretty happy using Aweber as my email marketing software.
It was fairly simple to use. Did the job. It was fine.
Then ConvertKit came along....
(I've tried MailChimp, Infusionsoft, Get Response and a couple of other crappy services that aren't even worth mentioning)
If you want to increase your 'open rates' of your emails, get better automation tools and ability to manage large numbers of subscribers, look no further.
