Hi. I'm Brandon.

I'm a husband, dad, and digital mercenary. (I just made that up. It sounds cooler than "freelancer.") I'm also a writer who thinks we should live life on our own terms.

So, that's what I write about. And the best way to hear about new posts is to sign up for my email list. You can do that right here:

WordPress Website Hosting: Flywheel

I use Flywheel to host all of my WordPress sites. It’s just easier to use than all the other hosting companies I’ve tried. And their customer service is fantastic (if you’re anything like me, you’ll definitely need it).

Flywheel was built specifically for hosting WordPress sites. It’s so easy to use that you can know absolutely zilch about hosting and still have your site running in minutes.

Tools for Growing your Website: Sumo

Sumo is hands-down the best collection of tools for growing a website. Email signup forms, pop-ups, landing pages, signup bars, social media share buttons, content upgrades, image sharing, email auto-responders, contact forms, direct messaging, Google Analytics — Sumo includes all of this under one account.

The tools are super-easy to set up and customize. And if you bought all these different services a la carte from different companies, you’d pay ten times the price.

Website Builder: WordPress

WordPress is the open-source software the powers over 27% of the websites on the entire internet. That means this is free.

It’s a content management system that makes it easy to update the content on websites. That’s why it’s the preferred software for bloggers and other media companies.

But its uses are limitless, and it’s really simple to learn the basics. With WordPress and a decent host, you can have a website live in less than 10 minutes.
