Get exclusive tips that'll help you master WordPress, Beaver Builder and lots more.

You need to try these software

If you're actually serious about ensuring your business is successful online, you're going to need to do three main things:

  1. Automate the crap out of everything you do. How can your business grow if you're spending half your day doing admin? Where's the time for prospecting and actually doing the work?
  2. Build a pool of customers you can contact at any given time. We learnt this through running BeyondBeaver and how much better our mailing list customers respond to our business vs social media etc. You need to start building a list of some sort, and then stay in contact with your customers.
  3. Streamline existing processes so you have more time to build your business. If you're a web agency, you want to be doing websites faster so you can do more.

These are the products we highly recommend

Based on our personal experience, developed by doing hundreds of websites and running our own web agency, together with our running of BeyondBeaver.com, these softwares are well tested, stable, and have directly helped us build our business.

Web hosting

InMotion Hosting

Instant Live Chat Support, SSD Hard drives and extremely affordable pricing. They offer the best support we've ever come across. If you're struggling to find a reliable host that ensures your website loads fast, give them a go.

WordPress Page Builders

Beaver Builder

Beaver Builder is hands down the best WordPress Page Builder. We'd even say the best WordPress plugin available. You need this!

Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder

Ultimate Addons for Beaver Builder supercharges your Beaver Builder website by adding 100+ Page Templates and lots of new modules.

PowerPack for Beaver Builder

PowerPack is another great addon for Beaver Builder, which adds lots of new Page Templates and modules.

WordPress Premium Themes

StudioPress / Genesis

If we ever need to build a website that requires more control over the layout than Beaver Builder can allow, we pick Genesis. We have purchased their All-themes package and it really is the best framework for WordPress out there.

Theme Junkie

We purchased the unlimited themes FOREVER license for under $100! Sometimes we just need an out-of-the-box theme that does a specific thing, like a news layout, or a more advanced WooCommerce shop theme.

Email Marketing

Active Campaign

We used to recommend Aweber for Email Marketing (as an alternative to Mailchimp as Mailchimp gets expensive) but we had heard that Active Campaign had redesigned a few things so we had to check it out. We have set up this site BeyondBeaver.com with Active Campaign and it is incredible. We can do everything we need, it's affordable and the interface is beautiful. We highly recommend you check this out!

Live Chat / Customer Support

Tidio Chat

We've tried a lot of Live Chat plugins and this is definitely the best so far. It's affordable, looks sexy, has a mobile app, AND has automation. For $9/month we've overwhelmingly increased our customer satisfaction levels and conversion rate, and highly recommend you get your hands on this.

FreshDesk

We use FreshDesk to handle our Custom Support to ensure we maintain our high levels of Customer Satisfaction. It also fits nicely into our automated process with Gravity Forms and WooCommerce. Less time on support is always good.

Design Resources

Deposit Photos

We used to use DollarPhotoClub and it was amazing - $1 a photo for any size. It's since closed down and now we're using Deposit Photos for all our client websites. We've found it has the best range of photos out of the remaining stock imagery libraries, and is very well priced.

Unsplash.com

Hands down the best free image library on the web. All images are copyright free so you can use them however you want. We use these in our Child Themes and we often get stuck on the site just browsing.
