We all know how time consuming it is to create themes from scratch. My first custom theme took more than 50 hours of development time, and I was using a starter framework! I'm always looking for ways to streamline my workflow. So, if you are looking to speed up development process, checkout Beaver Builder. I cut my development time by more than half. Beaver Builder paired with the Beaver Themer add-on (which allows you to create custom templates using existing or custom fields without touching the backend), you'd be a force to reckon with. Worker smarter not harder. You got this!
I absolutely love this plugin! I needed an easy way to manage client projects without relying on emails, which often get lost, overlooked, or sent to spam. ClientPortal allows me to keep clients up-to-date on their projects by providing an interface to share content, links, and other project related assets in a single location.
My new friend, James Rose, created a really easy way for designers or developers to get content from clients. Besides being one of the prettiest things I've seen, it is super functional and very intuitive. For example, Content Snare sends automatic reminders so clients can get you the resources you need to complete their projects on time. Oh, and he has one of the best on-boarding experiences I have ever had. Definitely check it out.

Hey! If you need a customer support portal (...you do, you just don't know it yet...ha!), try Freshdesk. Track customer issues, create documentation, and run reports. Who knew customer support could be so sexy! Freshworks is the parent company that creates Freshdesk, Freshchat, and Freshsales (and many others) so they all integrate well for an amazing end user experience. Did I mention it, too, is free? Yeah, you should jump on this, like, now.
If you are looking for a way to connect with your audience, add ConvertKit to your toolkit. You can automate email sequences, deliver content upgrades, and view reports to determine how effective your campaigns are. It look me less than an hour to get started. Worth every penny!
Don't let the name fool you. There is nothing cheap about the service Namecheap provides. It is the only domain service I recommend.
