ThriveCart offers a secure, feature packed, and easy to use cart and checkout system. If you're selling courses, membership, or any digital product you must check out ThriveCart.
Email Marketing Automation
Simple and inexpensive email marketing and automation platform that integrates with most other major products, including ThriveCart and ThriveSuite. It has good deliverability rates and an easy to use interface.
Web Hosting & Content Delivery Network (CDN)
We have multiple web sites running smoothly on Cloudways. Their prices are reasonable, and their interface makes it a snap to spin up and manage applications. Even scaling up as your traffic grows is just a couple of clicks. And, we really appreciate the abundant documentation they have.
We use Bunny.net as our site's CDN to speed up performance. It's also incredibly inexpensive to use for storage of files and streaming videos that we use with our courses. The performance is top notch!
This is the video player we use for all our course videos. It has great features, including overlays, watermarks, and muted auto play. Plus, it integrates perfectly with Bunny.net.
I'm not a graphic artist or a great video editor. But, with Canva, I can do a fast and efficient job of both. This is my go to tool for social media, advertising, and web site graphics. I also use it for video editing and creating presentations. The Pro version is worth it!
We use AAWP to easily generate beautiful Amazon Affiliate link graphics and tables on our blog. You can check out some examples of tables and products built using this here.
