I’m a complete fiend for tools, apps and hacks that make life, work and business easier, more efficient or effective. And on top of that I LOVE software. Well the good stuff anyways.
Below you will ONLY find tools I am using right now and I operate a no tolerance policy for crappy (in any way) software. In summary everything in this list is the mutt’s nuts.
So here’s to your efficiency and success,
Search Engine Optimisation Tools
For a long time I sat on the fence with this product. I signed up for Moz. I signed up for more keyword research tools than you could wave a small country’s worth of sticks at. I was happy in my ignorance. Then one day I noticed that SEM Rush were dropping new features like a baller drops 50 notes at a stag party.
SEM Rush is the bomb for just heaps of things but if you plan to offer SEO services in 2017, it’s not possible to do the job efficiently and effectively without this tool. Same goes for if your aspirations are to build a solid traffic base to your own authority site.
Do your client’s (or your wallet) a solid, put your big boy pants on and lets take this puppy for a test drive. You won’t regret it.
Cloudways Managed Hosting
I’ve hosted websites since 1999 and in that time I’ve worked with dozens and dozens of different hosting companies (if not hundreds). Some were okay. Others about as awesome as a shit sandwich.
Then a trusted friend introduced me to Cloudways and it was like a cold drink of water in the desert. These guys are the (Fiat priced) Lamborgini in a world of full of Fiats!!
Cutting edge front end UI built on top of ALL of the major cloud hosting platforms, such as Digital Ocean, Vultr, Google, Amazon, and more. WordPress, Magento, Joomla, and many other common CMS available.
Why not trade in that crappy hosting account you’re using right now and give your website the shot in the arm it needs.
Did I mention they have a really easy migrator plugin for WordPress that makes moving a total breeze?
