Here we give you a couple of free things and share our favorite resources for business, healthcare, and inspiration.
Content Creation Tools
Writing and Editing
Website Hosting and Tools
WordPress is our recommended content management system.
StudioPress* offers some of the most beautiful, functional, and secure WordPress templates out there. These templates are just stunning as they are, or they can be customized to fit your needs. Click below to view the theme of the month, then browse the site for more ideas.
Bluehost* offers reliable, affordable web-hosting at very reasonable prices. When Amy builds a new site for a client, she always recommends that they move their hosting to Bluehost. At only $3.49 per month for unlimited hosting and a free domain name, it’s a smoking deal.
Gravity Forms is a great resource if you want forms with a little more functionality than some of the free plug-ins out there. These forms can be useful for patient information or for disclosures. Always be sure that everything you do online is HIPAA compliant – don’t let any form plug-in deliver its contents to an unsecure location.
Email List Management
MailChimp is probably the best choice for most folks because it is FREE for up to 200o subscribers and 12,000 emails per month. It is clean and easy to use. It’s what we use here at Coffee Break. Oh, you haven’t signed up for our email list? You should do that right now! You’ll get great content delivered at no charge to your inbox and see what MailChimp does.
AWeber is another excellent option for email management. There is a charge, even for a small subscriber list. But at larger numbers it might be worthwhile to compare the two services and see which will meet your needs the best.
