My Resource Toolbox
Below are some of the resources I use here at Barrie Davenport.com and on my other sites that you might find useful. If you are considering creating a blog or website to support your life passion, these resources will be invaluable to you. Please note that I am an affiliate for some of these resources.
AWeber is an email marketing service provider software used by over 1000,000 customers globally. AWeber’s email marketing platform allows you to market to your target customers and audience anywhere on the globe. With AWeber, you can build your email list, create auto responders, segment customers and track your results. This is the mailing service I use to send out blog updates, share information, and present new products and services.
E-junkie is a centrally-managed, copy-paste shopping cart and digital delivery service that allows you to easily sell anything, from information products to tangible goods. E-junkie provides you with shopping cart and purchase buttons to let you sell yours goods and services on your website. I use E-junkie as the shopping cart for my digital products. It’s compatible with Paypal Standard, Paypal Pro, Google Checkout, Authorize.net, TrialPay, Clickbank, and 2CheckOut. It works great for a very low price, and comes with a decent affiliate program for your products.
This is the web hosting service I use for several of my sites. I highly recommend Hostgator for great pricing and excellent customer service. They provide top-notch service to clients from over 200 countries internationally and provide server packages for both beginners and professionals alike. Their plans include 24/7/365 phone and live chat support, a 99.9% uptime guarantee, and a 45-day money-back guarantee.
Bluehost is a website hosting service that’s great for first-time and advanced bloggers. It’s incredibly easy to use with 1-click automatic WordPress installation and excellent customer service – via phone and chat. Also, you can use the same hosting account for multiple domains if you plan on creating more websites. Although I don’t use this hosting service now since my site has grown so big, it is an excellent hosting service.
PayPal is an online payment service that allows individuals and businesses to transfer funds electronically. I use Paypal to accept payments for my courses and coaching services and to make mass payments to my affiliates. It’s a necessary service for any online entrepreneur or business.
Wishlist member is a very easy to use membership plug-in that can turn your WordPress site into a full-blown membership site. You just unzip and upload the plugin, and within minutes you’ll have your membership site up and running with protected, members-only content, integrated payments, member management. I use Wishlist member for my courses that are presented on a website where purchasers have to be members of the site to access course materials.
