Everything you need to get started
5DayDeal is all about giving you everything you need to successfully start, and run your own creative business. There are a lot of tools out there to help you do this, but it can be difficult to know which ones are the best for you.
When we started 5DayDeal we had to do all the trial and error for ourselves. Now that we’ve been in business for a few years, we know firsthand which things work and which ones aren’t worth your time.
That’s why we’ve put together this handy list of 5DayDeal-approved resources to help you get started on the right foot, and save yourself from wasting time (and money) by starting from scratch like we did. Hopefully, you find them as useful as we do.However, please read thisbefore getting started.
#1 FOR HOSTING WEBSITES & BLOGS
If you’re looking to start a new website, Bluehost is the best way to get up and running without breaking the bank. It’s so simple to use, plus, you can install WordPress in seconds via their one-click automatic installation.
With Bluehost, you can host multiple domains on a single account, meaning, if you have an idea for a new website, you can get it going for just the price of the domain - no extra hosting fees! And if you have any problems whatsoever, their customer service team is happy to walk you through it. We can’t tell you how many times this has saved us from a major headache.
Through an exclusive deal with 5DayDeal, you can get hosting from BlueHost for just $3.49/month - You’re not gonna find anything better than that out there. Trust us, we’ve looked.
BUILD YOUR EMAIL LIST
The number one advice you hear from any online marketing “guru” is to start building an email list as soon as possible. And we’re not gonna lie, it works. It’s been the key to our success here at 5DayDeal.
However, there are tons of different email list management companies out there, and I think we’ve tried them all. Literally. After all that though, the one that stuck out to us as the clear winner is ConvertKit. Give it a shot, we think you’ll be pretty impressed.
CREATE YOUR LANDING PAGES
There’s a pretty clear science behind what makes a landing page convert, and Click Funnels has nailed it. Not only that, they make landing pages so easy to create that you can literally have one up and running in minutes.
Best of all, Click Funnels works with both WordPress and non-Wordpress sites to easily help you convert your visitors into subscribers or paying customers. It’s like a dream come true for online businesses and we couldn’t recommend it enough.
HOST YOUR DOMAIN
Of all the domain hosting platforms we’ve tried over the years, none of them have been as user-friendly as Hover. It integrates seamlessly with almost any website builder you can think of including tumblr, Etsy, Github, Squarespace, Weebly, Linkedin, WordPress and more.
They have wonderful customers service, and offer all the tools you need to start reaching your target audience today. These guys are the real deal, and we’d highly recommend checking them out right now.
