My 5 favorite website resources for business coaches (in no particular order)
I spend all my time making websites for people. My favorite website resources for business coaches are listed below. Hope you enjoy.
1. Backup Support
Updraft Plus is a free plugin that lets you set up automatic backups on a schedule and store them at an external location, such as dropbox, amazon S3 or google drive. What I love about it is that it works so well. I used to use another plugin that would always hang while creating a backup, and it wouldn’t ever finish running. It was so frustrating to find that the last backup hadn’t been successful and it had been running for 3 months. That never happens with updraft. In fact, I just set it and forget it most of the time. I do check for backups, but I never find trouble with this backup plugin.
2. Divi Theme
If you haven’t tried it yet, you’ll probably want to soon. I love it so much that I have stopped shopping for themes all together. I use this for almost every site I build these days.
This is why.
- Everything can be edited on the front end of the site.
- I know that it all works.
- When I build a new site, I don’t have to learn a new theme.
- I know they’ll be around for a long time, so I won’t have to re-do the site because I can’t update the theme.
- It’s so flexible, you can make it look like pretty much anything you want.
3. Time Scheduling
My favorite time scheduling service is actually a plugin that can be installed locally on your WordPress site. It’s called bookly. It’s pretty affordable and comes with great features when you purchase the full plugin rather than the lite version. For instance, you can sync your google calendar, add staff members, and charge for appointments. It’s pretty powerful and makes it so easy to set up appointments with people. No more chasing back and forth with emails to find a time that will work for everyone. What a waste of time! This is way better!
4. Pop Ups
My favorite popup plugin is called Popup Maker. It’s free. But, it has all the features I want in a pop up plugin. It can be set to open with clicks, or time delay. It can make optin popups, slide-ins, modal forms and more. You can set cookies to prevent the popup from showing too much, so you don’t become annoying (because nobody wants to be annoying).
5. Free Images
While I often purchase stock images, I sometimes like to get them for free. When I do, I usually use a site called pexels.com. It’s got very tasteful images compared with other sites (though there have been a few times I’ve had to look away or scroll quickly to get past something nasty). I’ve been able to find some great images on their site and who can beat free images?
