I made this list to save people hours of Googling for answers and quick trips to Sadville because you unknowingly made a bad technical decision that comes back to haunt you later.
These are the same tools I've used to run my business and help my clients for the last 3 years.
Each of the tools I recommend here are things I have used for years on both my own and my client's sites to build online marketing machines that run reliably and quickly so you can spend your time growing your business instead of dealing with tech hurdles.
Have fun and reach out if you have any questions! You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks for being here! I created this list after spending too many years rescuing frustrated non-technical business owners who were being held hostage to slow and unresponsive developers, or held back by ineffective websites.
I hope you find it helpful.
As you go through the course, you'll unlock more goodies! If you're the kid who loved the prize inside the cereal box, this is for you. :)
Your website MUST be kept secure and up-to-date if you want it to serve you well. If you don’t want to manage this yourself (and as a busy business owner, you shouldn’t), you'll learn the options for outsourcing this to a trusted team so you don't have to call the WordPress ambulance after a late-night DIY update. #dontbethatperson
