    So many great resources in this episode that will help keep the “home-base” for your business safe – thanks guys!

      Thanks Maritza, Dustin definitely shared some great tips that we often overlook.

    Thanks Anthony, now my website is finally up, I’m going to go and install the Google analytics and backup plugins sooner rather than later. I was wondering which analytics plug in to use and really like the look of Google Analyticator you linked to in these show notes, so now I will save time on research and can just do it.

    • Anthony Tran on October 15, 2014 at 7:26 am

      Hi Christine, Google Analyticator is a great plugin and I also linked to another Google Analytics plugin that is very easy to use. All you have to do is input your Google Analytics ID and save it.

    • Anthony Tran on October 15, 2014 at 7:26 am

      Thanks Justin, yes my favorite tip that Justin provided was about the website staging tools.

    I had honestly never thought about backing up my website until I listened to this episode. So nice to know that ‘there’s an app for that’ – off to email my webmaster stat!

    • Anthony Tran on October 15, 2014 at 7:27 am

      Hi Charlie it’s very important to back up your website. It’s like having insurance for your web business.

  5. Paul Colaianni on October 10, 2014 at 1:30 pm

    Really good info here! Love the advice, especially the first thing you talked about: Backing up! I do local backups, but I love the advice you gave. I am now changing my habits. Thanks for the great show!
