For Accounting & Billing Software:
Freshbooks: Bookkeeping is not one of my favorite tasks (but sending invoices is!). What I love about Freshbooks is that it makes both tasks so easy that even I find it kind of enjoyable to do the accounting chores. Besides all of that, though, what makes Freshbooks really stand out is their support team. They will answer the phone (yes! the phone!) within four rings and help you with any question you have. I can’t say it enough: I love, love, love Freshbooks.
For Email Marketing:
ConvertKit: If you want Infusionsoft-like features like tagging for emaills, ConvertKit is the way to go. It is highly intuitive and easy to work with, they provide training videos, and their customer support is stellar. Starting at just $29 per month, you can do highly sophisticated behavior-based email marketing.
AWeber: We believe AWeber to be one of the best choices you can make for your email marketing. If you aren’t sure about how you want to proceed with your email marketing, AWeber is a great choice to start out. Unless you have no money, then you better scroll down this page and get MailChimp.

MailChimp: We’re also crazy for MailChimp for a lot of reasons. For starters, they have an awesome free program where you can mail to up to 2000 subscribers before you have to pay for anything. But, as with anything free, there are some limitations. Mainly, you can’t use their autoresponders nor their TimeWarp service where you can send emails at the time you want for any subscriber’s time zone. Pretty neat. It’s not quite as intuitive to use as Aweber, but then, hey, that’s why you have me!
GetResponse: is a feature-rich email marketing solution, fully scalable and capable of handling both small and very large lists (1 million+ subscribers). For over 10 years, it has provided easy-to-use, self-service applications and expert support for creating and managing email and video marketing campaigns, newsletters, and autoresponders that convert contacts into customers. Through responsible and fully automated list hygiene, anti-spam practices and established relationships with major Internet and Email Service Providers, GetResponse has maintained the highest possible deliverability standards for over a decade, ensuring that our customers’ messages deliver the highest possible return on their email marketing investment.
For Website Development & Design:
WebsitesInWP: We highly recommend Suzanne Bird-Harris of WebsitesInWP for all of your website/blogsite design and development. She’s fast. She’s affordable. And she delivers when she says she will. You won’t be waiting around for a long time for your website. And Suzanne knows marketing, so she knows how to build a site that not only will look good but will be a marketing machine for your business.
For Transcription Services:
Kampa Transcription: If you need to have audio, video or webinar content transcribed in to words on paper, I highly recommend Melissa Kampa. Her work is stellar! And she’s fast. Not only does she give you an accurate transcription of what was said, but she takes the time to clean things up, fixes grammar, and gives you a finished document that is so professional you won’t have to do a thing to it to provide to your audience. She can provide a simple transcript or a fully customized transcript with your own branding.
Melissa specializes in working with coaches, consultants, authors, business advisers and information marketers who use their transcripts as marketing materials, bonuses to programs and webinars, and content for up-and-coming books. And did I mention that she’s fast? And accurate?
