What is GoHighlevel/Highlevel?
GoHighlevel, or just Highlevel as its users call it, is an all-in-one sales and marketing platform for marketing agencies and small businesses. The GoHighlevel platform offers every tool needed to run a business successfully at a fixed monthly cost. The GoHighlevel platform allows you to Whitelabel their software so agencies can use this platform and brand it like it was their own. This allows agencies to create a Software as a Service (SaaS) business and an additional monthly recurring revenue stream.
Typically agencies would perform a job for their client like building a website or running Facebook ads only to have the job end or the client cancel their service. Now, agencies have to continue to market to find another client. Now with GoHighlevel, you can migrate your clients off whatever CRM, email marketing tool, phone system, or funnel software they may be using and run their business entirely off the GoHighlevel platform. The best thing about this is that your clients pay you monthly for these services. You can charge $297, $497, or whatever you want to charge for these services and your client continues to pay for these each month like a utility creating a stable recurring monthly revenue.
GoHighlevel sets no limits for its users on any paid plan so you can have unlimited contacts, websites, funnels, email or text templates, and workflows. There are also no limits for storage so you can host as many videos, files, documents, or images as you or your clients may have.

I wanted to define a few terms here so that this post is consistent with its terminology.
- Blog – A website operated by an individual or group consisting of posts on a particular topic, typically involving the same Genre.
- Blogging – This is the process of creating a blog post and sharing that content on the blog website.
- Blog Post – An individual article written on a specific subject to educate or entertain the reader.
Purpose of a Blog?
Blogging has been around since the beginning of the Internet. Using platforms like WordPress, a widely used blog post editor, has made it easy for even novice writers to create blog posts. There are several reasons why people use Blogs. In the beginning, it was simple to share people’s personal experiences with others. People began using their blog page to make money as the internet grew and matured.
There are several ways to make money today using a blog. A standard method people use today is affiliate marketing. When a person is looking to buy something, they often use Google search to ask something like “What is the best video camera for mountain biking” or “What is the best mountain bike.” These searches will always return results from a blog where someone has posted about that topic. The post will typically contain a comparison of the product being searched for as well as the pros and cons of the product as well. Its purpose is to educate the reader on these products. The post will also contain links for the reader to purchase these products. When the reader uses these links to purchase a product, the person who wrote the post gets a commission for the product’s sale.
