Welcome to my resources page. Here I am going to share tools and services which I am using to build my business. Many newbie bloggers keep asking me about the tools which I am using, and it's quite hard to tell each and every one. So I am creating this page so that I can share it with anyone.
I recommend you to bookmark it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!
Disclosure: Please note that some of the links are affiliate links, which will not cost any extra money to you if you will buy using my links. I am personally using all the tools, so here I am not going to create any hype or any statements to make you buy these products. My intention here is to help you select best tools in the industry.
WordPress is the CMS (content management system) we are using to run this blog.
26% of the websites in the world are running on WordPress.
30% of the top 1000 websites in the world are using WordPress to run their blog.
It's very easy to manage and you can create a stunning blog with its themes and plugins. I started my first blog with WordPress and now almost 95% blogs are running on WordPress (few are on blogger.com).
Hosting and Domain
#1. CloudWays – This blog is running on CloudWays hosting. CloudWays is a managed WordPress hosting which is recommended if you have some technical knowledge. They use various services at the backend to helo you create a server for you. DigitalOceal, Vultr, Amazon AWS and Linode are few of the services they use at the backend.
#2. A2Hosting – A2Hosting is by far the best hosting I have ever come across. If you are just starting your blogging career (or even looking for the best hosting for your blog), I strongly recommend choosing A2Hosting. A2Hosting is best because
- You'll get unlimited storage
- Unlimited databases
- Free SSL for your blog
- Free SSD server (10 times faster than normal hosting servers)
- cPanel to manage everything
#3. GoDaddy: My 90% domain are on Godaddy. This is one of the top domain provider company and they provide you chat support 24×7.

Other IM Tools

WordPress is nothing without the plugins. Plugins make your blog powerful to make it more engaging and give you more flexibility to extend the features.
#1. Pretty Links – This is one of the must-have plugins for any blog. If you are adding any kind of affiliate links on your blog, you need this plugin.
#2. Thrive Leads – I have tried many lead capture plugins in the past but this is the plugin I love the most. This plugin allows you to add beautiful optin boxes at various places with ease.
#3. Shortcodes Ultimate – This plugin has powered up my blog by giving me the flexibility to add amazing buttons, notification boxes, columns and many great shortcodes with ease.
#4. WPCoupons – I am using this plugin to create awesome looking coupons on my blog. You can create any coupon with this plugin and create a special coupon option at your blog to promote various affiliate products.
#5. Thrive Architect – I am using this plugin to create stunning landing pages at my blog. This is by far the best plugin I have ever come across to create landing pages. My second choice is Elementor.
#6. Ultimate Social – This plugin helps me to add the beautiful looking share button on my blog. I can place the button before or after the content, or I can even create a floating share button on my blog.
#7. Yoast SEO Premium – After using Yoast SEO plugin's FREE version for more than 3 years, I decided to go for the paid version of it. It gives me more options to manage the SEO of my blog.
So these are all resources which I am using to build my online business. I will keep updating this list from time to time and add more tools according to my experience.
