Tip The Scale In Your Favour And Reduce Uncertainty When You Use These Juicy WordPress Tools.
Just holding on to every WordPress medicine poisoned my time and didn’t leave me open to achieve more in my business. Exactly NO one had warned me about how quick you can sink into a website project when you hold on to too many solutions for the same problem, too many plugins, and too many bullets in your gun.
I had to get back to making money and using a website for what it’s for. I had to strip naked. Lose a few darlings, drown many plugins. Man, the scars… Anyway, many years later I’m here to let you know that being new at WordPress shouldn’t make you fair game to every wannabe solution out there.
To build your website on time, be able to announce it to the world and not get hounded for how poorly it works, take this bag of juicy WordPress resources and run. Until you’ve reached satisfaction with the minimum viable version of your site, don’t look left or right. Or do. And waste precious time.
- Siteground – Their basic hosting package comes with free Cloudflare CDN (to speed up your website & hence positively affect SEO) and free SSL (to allow secure financial transactions on your website). And much more. This is currently the only host I recommend.
WordPress Premium Themes
- StudioPress – You can buy each child theme with the Genesis framework in one package, or pay once to download their entire theme collection. WordPresstutor is built on the Genesis framework.
- ElegantThemes – Owners of the popular Divi framework. They also have a lifetime deal that gives you access to all their themes and plugins.
- Themeforest – Probably the biggest marketplace for premium WordPress themes. Here you can find themes that do not require you to install any of the frameworks above.
We explained the benefits of premium themes over free themes in this article. There are 2 ways to go about using premium themes:
- Install a theme framework -> then a child theme and demo content
- Or install a parent theme -> then demo content (convenient, but not without risk)
- WP Rocket – This plugin will help your website load fast. Very fast. Speed is an advantage when you seek to rank higher in search engines.
