I was studying lately on how to set up my own business mechanism online.
I would like to ask, based from your experience or from what gurus say, what are the best Online Software Services out there for the following:
Web Hosting -- People are telling me that Blue Host is good, but some are saying that WP Engine is better. What do you think guys? Also do you have other suggestions on other Web Hosting services that you've experienced already? What are your reviews of them?
Landing Page Builder -- with this service two names pops up first to me OptimizePress and Lead Pages.. However, I don't know which is the best. Or are there other services that in your opinion is better or will compete reasonably with those two? What are their pros and cons?
Autoresponder -- I know there are a lot of services out there that are good. What comes up on the top of my list are Aweber, Infusionsoft and Mailchimp.. However, they said that Infusionsoft is hard to understand while Mailchimp is easy to operate and cheap as well. However, I'm also aware that a lot of people uses Infusionsoft. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these Software Services? How about the other ones? To be honest, based on my research, Mailchimp is winning. But I'm writing this query to know based on your honest opinion is the best based on your years of experience in online marketing.
Shopping Cart -- About Shopping Cart... This one is still confusing to me.. I've read good reviews for Samcart, but what do you think? Are there other Shopping Cart services option out there that are also good, if not, better? What do you use?
Merchant Account -- and the last one, the Merchant account... What is the best Merchant Account out there? There is Powerpay and Stripe and also Infusionsoft.. Which is more cheap and convenient to use among them?
Your wisdom from the years of doing IM and your honest opinions about this stuff is really a valuable resource not only to me but also to others who want to start their own Business Online.. That's why I really highly appreciate it. I would love to hear your thoughts about this. And thank you for your time and wisdom.
To our success! Cheers!
