Blog With Budget 8 Low Cost Essentials For Bloggers

Hosting

If you want your blog to exist on the internet, you will need to host it on a server. And in order to do that, you will have to pay a hosting company for server space. Website hosting has become very intuitive over the last few years.

1. Bluehost

No matter your web development skill level from beginner to advanced I highly recommend Bluehost. First off, their customer service is incredible! So, if you ever have any technical trouble, you can get ahold of somebody quickly to resolve the issue. Plus, in my experience, their customer service reps are all extremely knowledgeable.

2. Site Ground

If I had to describe Site Ground in one word, I would choose fast. Their hosting is just plain speedy! And to top it all off, their customer service is incredibly responsive and knowledgeable. So, technical problems aren’t anything to stress about.

3. Lean Domain Search

If you have already purchased a domain name, that is great. You can probably just skip this resource. But, if you are struggling to come up with a name for your blog, I recommend spending a little time on LeanDomainSearch.com

4. GoDaddy

There are any number of domain name registrars out there, but GoDaddy is by far my favorite.

5. Convert Kit

Convert Kit is an email marketing service designed to connect with your subscribers. It is very similar to MailChimp, but has one major differentiator — it was designed specifically for bloggers.

6. G Suite

If you want to create an email address that matches your domain name, G Suite is my favorite resource.

7. Canva

If you want to develop shareable images and infographics, Canva is the only resource I recommend. It will come in handy when you want to create Pinterest pins, Instagram posts, Facebook ads, or any other imagery for your blog.

8. MailChimp

MailChimp is a great place to start your email list. They have every tool you need to get started collecting email addresses through your website, and sending professional-looking emails to your subscribers.
