I use AWeber for my email program. I find AWeber easy to use, they have templates if you want to use those for your newslettter. They are very helpful and you can call them or use their help section. This is important to me because when I need help I want to be able to call a company and also not be charged extra for help. Here is a free trial sign up, so you can actually try it first before you commit.

Can You Have More Sales, Too? Helping over 102,000+ businesses like yours raise profits and build customer relationships using AWeber’s opt-in email marketing software for over 10 years.

snagit take web video, graphics, screen captures, draw on images and more

Another Product I mentioned is Snagit by Techsmith. They also make Camtasia, which you may of heard of. Snagit is a fast and easy way to work with images, “snag” things off the internet, resize and work with images you already have, and now they have built in a recorder that allows you to use your web cam or record your desktop and upload it to youtube or they will give you a free Screencast account to keep videos on. Here is their website, and a video on the features.

domain name manager with godaddy

Domain Names– Click here to sign up for a domain name account with godaddy This is the ONLY thing I reccommend godaddy for. I do not recommend them for hosting or any other products. They charge extra for everything and their website is always changing, trying to upsell you all the time, and confusing. It is a decent place to buy and keep track of your domain names. They are all in once place and easy to set up for whatever hosting you select.
Don’t forget when you renew your domains, looks for coupons. Also do not buy your names for years in advance, you save more using coupons each year!

Web hosting WordPress Professional Top Notch

 

WebHosting– I run my own web hosting company for clients and it is only 95 a year.  This includes unlimited bandwidth, emails and two stat programs in your hosting control panel, unlimited sub-domains and add on domains and is very easy to use and understand. I am a reseller for HostGator, who are the 2nd largest hosting company in the U.S. I manage and oversee all my clients accounts and I am on call 24/7 if any issues come up. Which I can happily say rarely occurs. The reason people choose to go with me is personal service and I am always there to help. If you are interested in using me for hosting, please contact me at 510-582-2837.

Coupon Save Host Gator

If you would like to just sign up with Hostgator on your own, I have a 25% of coupon you can use. Go here-select your plan and when checking out, use  “askmpc25off” , and you will save 25% of on any plan you select, and the more you pay in advance the more you will save. If you need an SSL cert to run your shopping cart or payment system, I highly recommend you select their business plan. It includes a FREE SSL cert, which godaddy and other hosts charge 200-300 a year for. This is a huge savings if you are someone who needs that.

GravityForms-
Click here to visit rocketgenius. Gravity Forms is simply the best form program I have ever used. All my clients are using it now. It works with paypal, authorize.net and slide. It is like having on online file system. You can make extensive multiple forms and every submission has a copy of it saved on your site under entries. You can then export whatever fields you want, such as email, names, event special orders, and it will export to an excel file or format and basically you have a lifetime of records always on your site. Also with companies work with, it allows for you have you VA or assistants login and handle thing and see who has paid or signed up. The San Francsico Writers Conference is now using this sytem to register atteendees, Womens National Book Association for membership and  many many organizations I work with. To see how it works, you can watch my youtube video I made for clients already using the system.
