The following are all resources I have tried and use regularly in my business. They are meant for those starting out but that want a step up from free. Each of the links is an affiliate link meaning I get paid if you choose to work with them, but it doesn’t cost you anything extra to use the link. It’s just a super awesome thing to do, so thanks! 😀
My favorite website hosting company by far is Siteground. I love them for 24-hour uptime, having an amazing value for their pricing and phenomenal customer service. I have tried multiple hosting companies over the years, but none of them can compare to SiteGround. You also get a free SSL license with your hosting. (Added bonus) Check them out and use this link to get special pricing.

Getting a paid vs free WordPress theme is really a must just for security reasons alone. I really appreciate Elegant Themes selection, but almost always use their Divi them because of the flexibility of what you can do as well as the ease of changing things around. It is easy to use and manipulate and will have your website looking like a million bucks. Check out Elegant Themes here.
My favorite opt-in form creator to date is OptinMonster. They give you the ability to create unlimited forms as well as add things such as exit intent (that pops up when people try to leave.) You can track forms for different devices, different opt-ins, different sites (i.e. website vs. facebook, etc.) OptinMonster is a great getting started option with a lot of features and training. You can find them here.
