StudioPress Sites Hosting

Hi, Today I thought I’d mention Building your own WordPress website.

Is it Easy? Can I do it?

I remember when I had my own first website – many, many – maybe too many – years ago. Then I paid quite a considerable amount for someone to build and host my first website. It took a couple of weeks – I was not really consulted – and looking back it was crap I mean not very good. So late I went to night school to learn how to build a website and a little basic Html coding.  Within 6 months I’d built a website I was proud of. Today you don’t need to learn to code thanks to the universal “WordPress”; a free and open-sourcecontent management system.   Plus the costs of owning and running a website are so very much cheaper.

I have been using the services of StudioPress for many years.

StudioPress – they provide WordPress Themes (inc the Genesis Framework) and Plugins (including Backup Buddy and iThemes Security). These I use myself and have been a very happy customer. They also provide other advanced services, which I won’t go into here. Needless to say, they are reliable, established and recognized leaders in their fields.

Now they are providing an all inclusive package including hosting “WordPress Made Fast and Easy” –  in six steps you go from purchaser to publisher – You Get….

  • 20 Mobile-Optimized Themes
  • Industry Standard Design Framework
  • WordPress-Optimized Performance
  • SSL Certificate through Let’s Encrypt
  • Automatic WordPress and Genesis Updates
  • One-Click Install of Included Plugins
  • Zero “Hosting” Hassles
  • Rock-Solid Security

  • World-Class Support

Their plans (actually to keep things simple there are only two) are available in Monthly or Yearly payments. Of course, they offer a 30-day, 100% money back guarantee to all of their customers.

Get started with your own StudioPress Site, and discover what dazzling WordPress performance feels like.

My New Email System – ActiveCampaign

I’ve been wary of saying too much about this because I got all enthusiastic about GetResponse – which looks great on the surface, and is obviously perfectly fine for thousands of people – but when I looked under the hood and started designing real workflows and thinking about future scenarios – well, I can only conclude that their underlying data model “evolved”, rather than being properly designed from the start.

That means there are some pretty bad “gotchas” in their setup.

So, after being very upbeat about GetResponse and then becoming so disappointed by it, I was wary of getting hyper about my new system before digging into it in some depth.

Well, I’ve done that for long enough, and my verdict is

Five Stars!

The system I’m using is Active Campaign. (Yes, that’s an affiliate link, of which more later.)

I will write a lot more about Active Campaign, but for now, I am NOT saying ditch your current email service, but suggest when you are looking to upgrade or getting dissatisfied with your current provider you check out Active Campaign.

The fact is 99% of internet marketers only need the very bottom end of their plans (their Lite plan – $17 per month for 1,000 leads), which stands comparison with the higher-priced plans of most of the normal email service providers in terms of functionality AND cost.

Oh – and an interesting and revealing fact is that they provide a FREE conversion service for people using InfusionSoft: that’s the level of functionality to expect (but with a MUCH better interface).

So all that is Good!

The Bad part? Honestly, there’s nothing of note that’s bad. They don’t “like” totally 100% spammy emails – so be sure you provide valuable and interesting content; which you should be doing anyway!

The Unfortunate part?

Their affiliate commissions are rubbish! Dammit!

Anyway – if you’re in the market for an email service provider, sign up using this link – Active Campaign – so that I don’t miss out on those massive $1.70 per month commissions!! So I’ll never be able to buy a yacht and live on a remote paradise island for a long time yet. Double Dammit!!!!!

Make Your Own Comparison of these popular Email Service Providers…..




Note: They all offer a trial period – so try before canceling your current service.  I Have used all the above at one stage or another (but I don’t recommend constant switching.)

With ActiveCampaign you’ll get a higher return from your marketing and sales processes. Your conversion rate will increase as you send targeted, personalized messages that align with your contacts’ interests. You’ll have more loyal customers, more repeat orders, and more referrals as you nurture a strong relationship throughout all stages of the customer lifecycle.

WP Toolkit

Finally! Nearly Every WordPress Plugin, Theme and WooCommerce Plugin You Need for Your Website OR Your Clients in One Spot!

And for Less than the Cost of One Plugin!

As is my “norm” I only recommend products I have purchased and use myself. WP Tool Kit is no exception – I purchased earlier this year and it cost me more than the current offer so I have no hesitation in recommending and urge you to take a look at this NOW whilst the offer is so good.
I love guys that deliver immense value in a small package.
That’s what I love about this tool I found called WPToolkit. Click here to take a look at a quick video and how to use it.
Even if you’ve already got a WordPress site and it’s well established, you still probably look for the right plugins that allow you to be even more productive and more efficient.
You can spend days or weeks looking for the right tools while you spend hundreds or thousands of dollars.
Listen, this tool – WPToolkit – eliminates all of that.
Take a look here. You’re going to love this.
And if you’ve got clients, they’re going to love you too because you’re getting developer’s rights with this tool that gives you nearly everything you need to build a fast, mobile responsive, and beautiful site.
Check it out. But you have to hurry because this is going away soon.
To your success!
P.S. The WP Toolkit library includes 250+ Premium Plugins, more than 300 premium themes, and 200+ Woo Commerce extensions, pushing the total value included well in to 5 figures! >>> Click Here

The Easiest Way To Sell, License & Securely Deliver ANY TYPE of Digital Product!

NEW Product Launch for Anyone Selling (or even giving away)  PDFs, eBooks, Downloads, files,etc

I’m really sorry if you don’t get this in time and you have missed out BUT this is a last minute notice and it ends about today.  Hopefully, you get this in time. <<< ENDING NOW!

ProductDyno is one of the finest products I have seen released in a while AND it is from PromoteLabs.

I have purchased this myself it and it gets my 100% seal of approval – without question.  I am also advised further additions & improvements are to follow – there is a 60-day money back option if you are disappointed 🙂

Anyway, to cut a long story short,  right about now the early adopter special is going to end and instead of the lifetime one off fee you can get it for right now,  you will have to pay a recurring fee for it instead – for real!

So, if you miss out on this then there isn’t anything I can do – this is your VERY LAST CHANCE to grab this for a  lifetime fee.   UPDATE  The lite time offer has closed BUT you can still sign up for a 3 Years for One Licence Fee from$67

Oh… and if you can’t afford it,  here is a sneaky little hack :

Go to the salespage here : <<< 3 for 1 year offer!


I hope you find this information useful and beneficial –  enjoy Brian

Andy Brocklehurst said: I love it. It’s what EverLesson SHOULD have been but those guys stuffed it up and made it a monster.

Check the review out NOW as for the next day or so you can still get the early adopters  access for a low one time payment.

Don’t end up kicking yourself like many did with ThriveCart, etc!
