AWeber

AWeber does email, first and foremost. While other services will sometimes add loads of other things to their platforms (e.g. full social media marketing campaigns, and so on), AWeber mostly does email. And landing pages. But mostly email. That’s not a criticism by any means. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I generally prefer …

Sendinblue

Sendinblue’s features seem to cover all the basic things you’d want in an email marketing platform, right off the bat. I’ll get into the details below, of course, but you can expect a decent template editor, contact sorting and management, email automation, social media integration, and more. If you’re new to the email marketing game, then …

ActiveCampaign

ActiveCampaign is great, feature-wise. Everything worked fine in my tests, and there was very little missing. Of course, every service I review could be a little more complete, but ActiveCampaign only has one major flaw, and a couple of minor ones. I’ll get more into that below. Otherwise, you can expect a smooth, mostly-complete experience, …

99designs

Simply put, 99designs does design. You can’t get non-design related services like website development, but the trade-off is that you get a boost in quality and selection from a platform that specializes in design. You can get just about anything designed, from signage to marketing emails, but in this review, we’re going to focus on …

DesignCrowd

DesignCrowd, a community-based design service, has built a fairly respectable community of over 700,000 designers. They’re all ready and waiting to make a logo for you. Actually, DesignCrowd does it all: logos, business cards, T-shirts, website designs, cartoon character design, and even envelope design. The full list is massive, so it’s safe to assume that DesignCrowd can design …

Looka

Looka. Is that pronounced like “look-a” or “luke-a”? It’s one of the great mysteries of the last five minutes or so. Other mysteries include: Will Looka give me the logo I want? Is the price really worth it? Should I have another coffee already? It’s so early in the day. Well, it’s always the right …

Wix Logo Maker

I have rewritten the first paragraph of this section five times, trying to make an allusion to fantasy literature, and how very different stories can be equally good because they’re directed at different audiences. I decided that the risk of accidentally offending the Neverending Story fans in my life was too great. Let’s just assume that I …

Fiverr Logo Design

Fiverr has pretty much taken the world of online freelancing by storm. It’s not just for logo design or even design. You can hire anyone for just about anything. (More on that later.) As for your logo, well… presumably, you can use any language, so long as the designer you’re working with has the right fonts installed. …

InMotion Hosting

InMotion Hosting has been alive for a couple of decades. It has a fairly wide, if somewhat generic, array of services – including shared hosting, WordPress hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, and even private cloud hosting. With that range of products, plus the fairly affordable pricing, InMotion Hosting is targeting everyone from the hobbyist web designer …

Kinsta

Kinsta is all about managed hosting for WordPress. The key word there is “managed,” as in, all of the hosting and server setup is taken care of for you. It’s a cloud-based service build on top of the Google Cloud Platform, so the servers are fast, and redundancy is built in. There’s a support team that is, according …
