Engine Room

There are so many services available to help you with your SEO and managing your business online, I thought it would be a good idea to let you see some of the ones that I use and recommend first to clients. That’s not to say that any not listed here aren’t any good, these are just the ones I have found to be most effective for the way I work.

Full disclosure, in some cases I use affiliate links. This simply means that I may receive a commission if you sign up or purchase something via the links on this page. Rest assured though, everything that is in the engine room, I actually use for myself or my clients.

This page will be updated regularly

WEB BUILDING

  • Name Cheap – Easily the best priced domains that I have found.
  • A2 Hosting – They are great for customer service. I normally recommend them for clients new to the online game
  • Site Ground – Another great web host that I use. I am yet to be disappointed with their service

EMAIL MARKETING

  • Aweber – My preferred service for email marketing. Mainly due to liking their interface
  • Mail Chimp – Used to be my number one recommended tool for clients new to email marketing until Aweber started offering a free plan too

SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Hootsuite – One of the first ones I tried and have never needed to try another one because it has been so good. The interface is great but that might be because I’m used to it now

PERFOMRMANCE

  • Google Analytics – Before you start paying for a service to give you analytics on how your site is performing, you should try and get your head around Goole’s free analytics platform
  • Google Webmaster Tools – Another great free resource to help you understand how your site is performing
  • GT Metrix – Fantastic free tool that analyses the speed performance of your website as well as offering fixes
