WPX Web Hosting
Contengrow is hosted on WPX Hosting. It is specialised and known for making WordPress hosting super fast.
Earlier we use to recommend SiteGround but now as their services are not up to the mark, we migrated to WPX hosting and recommending the same.
Thrive Content Builder (Not using currently)
I used Thrive Content builder to design my posts and pages and make them look enticing. Its drag and drop builder makes my work a lot easier. No coding skills required. I adandoned using it as I prefer a clean design for my blog.
Contengrow.com is being powered by Authority Theme by StudioPress. I am a big fan of StudioPress for its minimalist design.
I use SEMrush to spy my competitors and look for the best secondary keywords and LSI keywords.
I use Yoast SEO for on-page SEO. It’s best to update your meta tags. You should not rely on Yoast SEO for keyword density and other SEO stuff.
Earlier, I used Optinmonster but just switched to Convert Pro for better functionalities.
Mailchimp is one of the cheapest and reliable email marketing service provider. I am using Mailchimp since I started my blogging journey in the year 2012.
I am a Shareasale affiliate where I can find various relevant products for every niche to promote and make money.
Shareasale is the best affiliate network to join.
I can’t list all affiliate marketing WordPress plugins here, but I have compiled them in a list. Simply hit the button below.
Monarch is a social sharing WordPress plugin by Elegant Themes. I like it because it’s responsive and enticing.
You can have a look at my blog’s sidebar monarch widget.
Buffer is social media management tool that shares your posts on automation and saves your time.
I use Canva to create free infographics, posters, banners, featured images etc.
Pixlr is one of the best free image editing tools.
