Which email marketing tool is the best one for you to choose?  I go over a few of the top email tools that are used to send out campaigns to all of your users.

Now if you’re a small business, a tool like this is essential.  It will allow you to market to an audience that has not yet purchased a product or service.  This is email marketing.

With all of the options to choose from, how do you know which one to select?  Especially if you’ve never done it before, wouldn’t it be nice to find a solution that would grow with you?  I think so.  That’s why I scoured the internet for some of the most popular apps to see which one would work best on a tight budget.

The apps that I go over are:

  • Benchmark
  • MailChimp
  • Drip
  • Aweber
  • Constant Contact
  • MooSend
  • ActiveCampaign
  • ConvertKit
  • MailerLite

There were a few key factors that I required in my search for the perfect platform.  If you’re a small business and you have done email marketing before, I think these factors are pretty important.

  1. Is there a free account that you can grow with.
  2. Am I able to create an automated/drip campaign with the free account. This basically means that if someone signs up, can I send them a series of emails automatically to keep them engaged.
  3. What’s the cost to upgrade?
  4. How user friendly is it?

I go over all of that and more in this video. Enjoy!

Management and Maintenance

Bottom line, we want to make sure your website is running as smooth as possible.

In addition to everything mentioned, we also add up-time monitoring to your website so we can be notified if your website ever goes down and fix it.

We back up your website daily, we make sure it’s running fast, and we ultimately treat the website as if it were our own.

Even better actually. The shoe makers shoes.

Site Security

WordPress sure does love to be hacked.

I guess that’s to be said for a platform that runs almost half the internet.

Key point, hackers love to mess up WordPress websites.  It’s incredibly annoying and an enormous nuisance if it happens to you.

But there’s hope!  We have security on top of security.  It’s very rare that one of our site’s gets hacked, but in the event it does, we’re on it. 

We have backups, and we make sure to clean the site to get it back up and running as quickly as possible.

Update Plugins and Themes

When you use WordPress, Themes and Plugins are constantly being updated.

Here’s the kicker though, it’s up to you to actually update them.  Most business’s purchase a  website and never log in to do essential updates.

When this happens, plugins end up being less and less secure, making you vulnerable to hacking and malware.

Not only that, when it does come time to update, if it’s been too long, it can actually break your website.

We make sure all of your plugins and themes are secure and up to date.

Task Requests

We want you to know that we will always be available and ready to make changes to your website.

All you have to do is make the request and we’ll add the task into our queue to work on.

We try to keep tasks limited to 30 minutes, and only 1 request a day.  But just reach out to us to make sure.

Anything over the 30 minute mark is invoiced.

If there’s ever an emergency task that you need to get done, mark the request as “Emergency” and we’ll take care of it ASAP.

HOSTING

If you really want to know all the technical stuff about our hosting, here it is.

We have multiple servers on a platform called Cloudways.  All servers are upgraded and specifically tweaked to make WordPress run really fast and be really secure. 

There’s 24/7 support on all of our servers and daily backups are ran both on the site and on the server itself.

We host all of our sites because it gives us more control and if anything ever goes wrong, we can jump on immediately instead of waiting  for support. :) Also, free SSL for you!
