While much of my business relies on video equipment, a lot of it is also based on my website here at videocreators.com. These are the tools that keep this place running smoothly and securely.
Web Hosting: Pagely.com – My website is built on WordPress and no one hosts WordPress better than Pagely. Their service is optimized to keep WordPress running as fast and smoothly as possibly. I used to pay a lot of money to patch together a system of multiple services to keep my site quick and responsive until I switched to these guys. Now they do it all for me for about half the cost.
Alternate Web Hosting: Stablehost – Since Pagely only supports WordPress, I have other sites and scripts hosted with Stablehost, which supports pretty much everything. So far my experience with them has been great. Super affordable, fast sites, and quick customer support.
Domains and SSLs: Namecheap.com – There’s a lot of places to register domains online, but I prefer these guys because they’re one of the cheapest and fastest places online to buy them. Plus, I already get my SSL certificates from them to secure my sites.
Email Campaigns: ConvertKit – I use ConvertKit for all my email campaigns. It manages my email newsletter lists well and integrates with my ecommerce system here. Plus, it gives me a lot of stats about my list and subscribers helping me know what kind of emails people find valuable and what they don’t.
eCommerce and Course Delivery: Thinkific – Since a lot of people have requested that I share the details of what I use on this site to deliver my ebooks, downloads, and video courses, my secret sauce is the Thinkific platform.
Online Community: Mighty Networks – We host a private, membership area for clients and creators. While the billing for it happens in Thinkific, the actual service we use to host the community is on Mighty Networks.
