If you have a business website, you’ll need website-related resources too, so here are a few that I’ve used and recommend.

Website content has to live somewhere in the cloud, which is why we need Web hosting companies. I chose Blue Host to store my content and keep it safe because of Blue Host’s excellent reputation for security and customer service. Whenever I’ve had a question, I’ve received a patient, curteous response.

WP Curve handles any technical problems I am having with my WordPress website and allows me to sleep better at night knowing there are experts who know how to fix any issues within 24 hours. I pay a flat fee ($79) per month to get unlimited 30-minute tech fixes. Some of the fixes I’ve requested include adding a link within a graphic on my home page, checking my site for security breaches and reviewing my Google Analytics setup. WP Curve has given me tremendous peace of mind. I also receive email suggestions from WP Curve on how to improve my site’s speed and security.

Undullify offers quick, friendly service and awesome, professional graphic design work starting at $29 per task. Communication was great after I signed up for a graphic designer to create my logo. I paid for the $29 one-time, small design job and received unlimited revisions to my design and different sizes. I returned as a customer later, paying another $29 to have a favicon made. I had some basic graphic design questions also, and my designer patiently answered my questions through email. It was great to get information directly from a professional designer. If I need more designs created in the future, there are monthly service packages. I’m so glad I found Undullify.
