Divi by Elegant Themes
Divi makes building websites so much easier, faster and more enjoyable. With Divi, you can build anything using a single platform, instead of managing dozens of different themes.
It’s also amazingly affordable and always included when you have Your website made easy.
What is there not to love about this plugin from Divi Lover? It adds great functions and a few things that Divi does not have built-in. This is a plugin that I include on all my websites. Just a must-have-tool for every Divi user. Yes, I definitely spread the love with this one.
Active Campaign is a mailinglist provider that is game-changing when it comes to customer journeys and lead capturing. It does not have a free plan but definitely worth your money if your setting up more complex mailing automations. The possibilities with ActiveCampaign are endless.
If you’re looking for a mailing list provider that will not cost much and that still offers custom workflows, this is a very god choice. I just love the easy setup and simple but effective approach. Start sending lovely newsletters in no time. Stay posted… I may be adding tutorials for this one!
Using forms can be so powerful. And because Jotform integrates with all the right tools, I am using it more and more. It allows you to collect information, payments and leads and even turns your forms into apps. I am definitely not done with this one yet!
You should be able to spend your time creating, not figuring out yet another piece of tech. Podia puts your website, digital products, and community in one platform that’s easy to use. Sell courses, online coaching, ebooks, webinars, and workshops all from one hosted platform.
This is my recommended choice for Swedish customers. Oderland services are backed up with friendly and knowledgable customer support. And their lightspeed plugin adds great features for speed optimisation.
If you are in the Netherlands, then Cloud86 is a splendid choice. This web hosting is fast, user-friendly and all in all a very complete service. Hop over and check out their pricing. Great value for money.
This is solid WordPress hosting with great and fast customer support. If you want to host multiple websites in one account, and stay on budget, this may be a good choice for you. SiteGround offers free and easy to use optimisation tools too.
If you are a bit more technical, and you have need for speed, then you might want to look at Cloudways. It will cost a bit more but with a scalable -pay as you go- setup you will always have the server resources you need.
Search Engine Optimisation is invaluable for any website. Rank Math makes this complicated stuff a little bit easier for us. It integrates well with Divi, and there are both paid and free versions, so just give it a try and see for yourself.
