Dubsado is OUR BEST FRIEND. No joke.
This CRM has the best customer service team in the business and they are constantly adding new features to Dubsado that just make it better and better.Dubsado offers proposals, contracts, bookkeeping, invoicing, client portals, questionnaires… we could go on and on! Our favorite feature, though, are workflows. They save So. Much. TIME.
If you’re ready to save a bunch of time, look like you’ve got it all together (because Dubsado makes you look GOOD), and get back to the things you love… Dubsado is for you.
Best customer service + website hosting
If you’re ready for one of the best web hosting experiences, SiteGround is where you want to go! They have a number of different hosting options and fantastic customer support.
You also get easy WordPress installation, an SSL (security) certificate, and several other tools with your hosting – for FREE! Not to mention SiteGround’s custom WordPress plugin that helps with caching and speed. If you’re ready for fast, reliable hosting, SiteGround has your back!
P.S. If you need good budget hosting, check out FastComet.
A great budget website hosting option
If you’re looking for affordable, no-nonsense web hosting, FastComet is my first pick. Their standard pricing is $2.95/mo for 3-years or $3.95/mo for anything less than 3 years. Yes, that is NOT a promo price! (Though they do occasionally have sales as well.)
In addition to fantastic non-promo pricing (which is a big selling point in our books, since it means your price won’t skyrocket after the promo period), FastComet also has good customer service and includes a domain name for free with your hosting. They also have a good price on domain name privacy protection, which is an essential these days.
If you’re just starting out and SiteGround is a bit out of your price range, I highly recommend FastComet!
