Products we use and Recommend
Building a high performance website required high performance website hosting. When I first started, I took the recommendations of the hosting companies everyone else suggested. But later I found out, they weren’t using those hosting companies for their main money sites. Veerotech is who we use for our website hosting. High quality, not overloaded and a variety of other upgrades you won’t see at other hosts (litespeed instead of apache, cloudlinux instead of centos, etc).
My two favorite shopping carts are Shopify and BigCommerce. I have been working with both of them for over 5 years and have multiple personal and customer sites hosted on them. Your job is to sell, not be a web designer. Both are PCI-DSS Level 1 compliant so you can have confidence in the security of your customer information.
Digital Access Pass
If you want to create a powerful membership site, Digital Access Pass is my go to platform for creating them. In fact, I believe in the platform so much, I bought 5 years worth of updates and currently use it on more than four different sites.
Optimize Press 2 is my go to theme when creating sales pages, membership sites and landing pages. Whether you use the theme, the included plugin or even their membership system, you can create powerful pages to sell online.
