Looking for a great free photo site? Need a website host that offers 24/7 customer support? Curious about which service providers I use?
Say no more! Here are my preferred service providers, starting with the free ones:
The Best of Free
- Stock.Xchng: The best free photo site there is (see my post The best source for FREE stock photos).
- MailChimp: I use it to manage my e-mail newsletter. It’s one of the few e-mail marketing companies that offers a free option; the service remains free for up to 2,000 email subscribers.
- FontSquirrel: An awesome place to get free fonts that are licensed for not only personal use, but commercial use as well.
Trusty Service Providers
- Bluehost: My web host of choice; they have reasonable rates, excellent customer support (available 24/7!), and lots of great features such as unlimited hosting space, unlimited e-mail accounts, and a free domain name included with each account.
- iStockPhoto: This is my favorite place to buy stock photos. They have the largest collection and greatest variety of images (at least that I know of), so I can always find what I’m looking for.
- Veer.com: This is my go-to place to find affordable fonts (Veer also offers stock photos, but as I stated above, I prefer iStock for photos).
