Deals and Discounts
As you might expect, I get approached by people to display relevant offers and deals and discounts to my readers. Here you will find a selection of offers. While I may get a small commision for doing this, I only accept products I use, have tried or have tested myself. If you see something that interests you please go ahead and click the provided links. From there you will be able to see if the product meets your requirements.
Bluehost is one of the favoured hosting companies on the WordPress recommended list. They offer one of the most reliable hosting service with full CPanel interface, mail and many apps to control all aspects of you site. They come highly recommended. Clicking on the Banner ad below will take you to their site.
Namecheap have been a reliable Domain name registrar for a very long time. They offer very good value and competitive prices. As their name suggests their primary business is the supply of domain names. Which they do so very well. They have supplemented their primary business with hosting, SSL certificate and a range of other services. You can quickly use their interface to register any number of domain names. There is no obligation to use their hosting. Just point the dns records to your chosen host. Click the banner ad to go there.
Short-Pixel is a must have for every WordPress website. You can download their WordPress plugin to compress and optimize all you website images automatically. The free account allows you to process 100 images per month. You can do a monthly account starting at $4.99 per month. Alternately just buy one off purchase of bulk credits non recurring. I find the latter very cost effective as credits never expire. Just top up when they run low. As an indication a on-off batch of 10k images will cost $9.99. That should last you quite a few months. And its not fixed to a single domain. If you have more than one website the credit can be used across them all. Click the image to go there.
G Suite comprises Gmail, Hangouts, Calendar, and Google+ for communication; Drive for storage; Docs, Sheets, Slides, Forms, and Sites for collaboration; and, depending on the plan, an Admin panel and Vault for managing users and the services.
If you have been following my posts and tutorials, I have mentioned G-Suite a number of times.
While these services are free to use for consumers, G Suite adds enterprise features such as custom email addresses at a domain (@yourcompany.com), option for unlimited cloud storage (depending on plan and number of members), additional administrative tools and advanced settings, as well as 24/7 phone and email support.
Being based in Google's data centers, data and information is saved instantly and then synchronized to other data centers for backup purposes. Unlike the free, consumer-facing services, G Suite users do not see advertisements while using the services, and information and data in G Suite accounts do not get used for advertisement purposes. Furthermore, G Suite administrators can fine-tune security and privacy settings.
Readers often appreciate recommendation of service providers. You can share your experience and help them to find service or product providers you mention in your blog. Many of these service providers offer commissions as a thank you for your recommendations. The simplest way to help your reader is to offer links to these services. I know I often refer to or recommend things I use or have had good results from. To write a full description of the products or services often distracts your reader. I find the easiest thing to do is to add a link instead. Shareasale is a service you can register for. They bring together many service provider we spoke about that reward recommendations. They provide you with personalized links to service providers. Your recommendations can be a source of revenue to help with the costs of running your website.
