Our Recommendations

l

There are so many business tools available these days that it’s impossible to know where to start. Luckily, we’ve tried a ton of them and are happy to recommend our favorites. Everything we recommend is used by us, either internally at S’more Brands or for our clients.

Website Hosting for WordPress

This is an easy one. We’ve tried every WordPress hosting company you can think of. And while there are a few good ones, Siteground stands out as the obvious leader. They have top-notch customer service that’s available 24/7, rock-solid servers that are optimized for WordPress and WooCommerce, and very reasonable pricing.

I generally recommend the Go Geek plan. It provides the best performance as well as geeky developer features that help your developer work faster (saving you money). And make sure you sign up for as long as you can upfront because the discounts are huge for new customers. 

All S’more Brands websites are hosted at SiteGround.

Business Email

Gmail is synonymous with email at this point. And that’s because Gmail has a reputation for being a great product. But did you know that Google also has a business class email service that allows you to use your own domain name as well as manage the users in your organization?

The service is called G Suite, and it’s just 5 bucks a month per user. And with that you don’t just get rock-solid email, you also get a ton of premium business and collaboration tools that you’ll probably wonder how you ever lived without.

It’s not that hard, but if you want the technical setup work done for you, get in touch! We’re happy to get your organization moved over to G Suite.

Email Marketing & Autoresponder

Email is one of the highest ROI marketing channels for your business. But to properly leverage the power of email, you need automation. And that’s where Active Campaign comes in. 

We’ve used several of the top email marketing services. Some of the good ones are Active Campaign, MailChimp, Drip, and Convertkit, among others. 

S’more Brands uses Active Campaign internally and for most client projects. We like it because it’s really easy to use and has all the features we want. If you need some help picking your email marketing software, let us know!
