DOMAIN & HOSTING
All of our clients websites that come to us looking for recommendations, are hosted on Cloudways. This is due to the simplicity that Cloudways has created for setting up hosting, and their simple one-click WordPress Installation.
Cloudways offers expandable server plans so if at any point within your hosting you need to expand to a larger plan, you easily can.
All of our sites built (Even this site) is built using Elementor Pro. This drag and drop designer theme makes designing a site very interactive, and gives us the ability to see exactly what we are designing, and we able to tweak little things along the way. The benefit with Elementor is they offer a free version, as well as a Pro version giving the ability to any business owner to get started with the Free version and update to Pro if they see fit.
We were going between MULTIPLE websites just to maintain my clients, their invoices, emails, where they are at in their design/site, then we were introduced to Dubsado. This LIFESAVER of a website has it all in one place, and allows you to do a lot of automation with prewritten emails, and autofilling contracts.

We have moved away from email communication during project development and solely depend on Slack now for when we are working with clients. This has streamlined all our communication in one area, as well as no more lost or randomly replied email threads.
Although we do use a premium version of slack, the free version does just as well!
