Recommended products for hosting, designing and marketing a website or blog.
Some links below are affiliate links. This means they come at no extra cost to you but help support Hustle Escape if you choose to sign up with them. I only ever recommend products I actively use here, so you can judge the front-end results for yourself.
I recommend SiteGround for website hosting. SiteGround offers fast and highly affordable hosting for small and growing website projects. Since switching Hustle Escape from a similar budget host (Bluehost) during 2020, I have been seriously impressed by the difference in speed, customer support and features. If you’re using WordPress to build your website, SiteGround also offers a neat and straightforward plugin to migrate to their hosting service without any fuss.

This website is built using the structure of WordPress and design functionality of the Elementor Pro plugin. You can build a WordPress site from scratch via SiteGround or use their range of design templates to get started.
I use Elementor Pro on this website to provide more flexibility in page design. Elementor Pro gives the options to create bespoke headers and footers, archive pages, blog post formats, pop-ups and much more. And best of all, it requires no coding at all. It’s the most flexible WordPress website design tool on the web, and it’s remarkably easy to use.

I use Mailchimp for my weekly newsletter. The free version of Mailchimp allows emailing to a maximum of 2000 subscribers. Campaigns can be automated or bespoke depending on your marketing needs. Paid versions of Mailchimp offer more advanced segmentation and campaigning tools. In conjunction with Elementor Pro, subscriber sign ups can be neatly linked to bespoke static forms and bespoke pop-up forms. Give it a go!
