Frequently received private messages from my friends asking me about which plugins I use for WordPress, what applications I use for web design, where to look for web design inspiration, which hosting should I use, etc.

Therefore, I wrote this article, and hope it can help any agency owner looking for the right tool to use.

Some of them offer lifetime deals, which is cost saving for agency owners.
