If you already have a WordPress setup on your site, you know the benefits. We’ve been using WordPress for years because of all the different things it allows us to do. WordPress is open source, meaning the original source code is freely available for anyone to use. Which is what gives it its flexibility in design enhancements and upgrade opportunities because anyone can add and build to make it a better program.
As a result, there are many different plugins and resources available to people who use WordPress as their main platform. Over the years, we’ve come to rely on many of them, and are always on the lookout for new things. Some are free; some are pay; but all offer you capabilities to do your job more effectively. Here’s what I’ve found for this year.
Are you a statistics person? Do you track your SEO on a regular basis? Do you want to know what keywords people use to find you? If you’ve ever used Google Analytics before, you may have been confused by some of the results. Analytify makes the process simple by clearly defining the results you are looking at.
If you like to write your blog posts on the go, you look for user friendly ways to write from any device, any platform. Blogo allows you to write, publish and manage multiple blogs, and even gives you integration with your Evernote account.
If you use forms on a regular basis for providing information to your prospects and clients, you know developing them can be a bit tricky at times. Gravity Forms makes the process easier, and can quickly integrate with the most popular third party applications you use most (like PayPal).
