Website / Email
My sites are powered by WordPress, a Content Management System (CMS). It is powerful and free to use.
My sites are hosted by SiteGround, a webhosting company that specializes in WordPress installation/management.
I manage my email list with ConvertKit, the best Email Management System (EMS) there is! (in my opinion). (Mailchimp is a free-to-start alternative, but it can grow to be more expensive and lacks some higher-end function.)
Most email collecting forms I use are created and managed through ConvertKit.
Additional email collecting forms are powered by ThriveLeads.
