WordPress is a content management system. It’s essentially the engine that drives your website – like Windows on a computer. It has become so popular, that an estimated 30% of websites in existence are built on it. There’s a huge community of developers that work together to continuously try and improve it, while ensuring that it remains fast and secure.

It’s flexible enough to allow developers to built fantastic websites with, but also simple enough to allow people with no technical experience to be able to write a blog or update their own websites.

The key WordPress tools that I use

WPMU Dev - my web host

WPMU are my web host provider. They also provide a lot of the speed-enabling and security software that is used on all of the websites that I build. Their support is incredible and they tend to go above and beyond to fix the issues that you’re having. In addition to this, there’s a strong community and training area for people to learn new skills.

Elementor - page building software

Elementor has quickly become one of the best page builders around. I think it’s THE best, which is why I now use it to build all of my websites.

It has a nice drag and drop interface to allow you to visually design websites, and comes with a plethora of features to build complex sites as well as simple one pagers.

One of the first things I do when setting up a new website is install this plugin.

WordPress training videos

The team over at WPMU create and maintain professional WordPress training videos that I am happy to share with all – for free.

I’ll be sending occasional emails to share what has worked, what hasn’t, and some ramblings along the way.

Trends.co is a newsletter, provider of trend analysis reports and a community of entrepreneurs looking to help one another, and share ideas about how to grow their businesses. There aren’t many places where founders of nine-figure companies offer their thoughts on your business plans or random business ideas. I’ve made many fantastic connections during my time there, and cannot recommend it enough.

Convert Kit is mailing list software, and is free for up to 1,000 subscribers. It’s also the best softwar I’ve come across in terms of delivering emails straight to people’s inboxes, rather than junk folders.

Evernote is a note taking app that has huge benefits. It’s available as both Apple and Android apps, and is available through a browser. Your notes sync instantly across all devices. What differentiates Evernote is the fact that you’re able to write notes, attach photos, voice clips and more. The ability to have multiple notebooks under ‘stacks’ is also very helpful. 

Evernote has become something that I cant live without.
