Benefits – Benefits – Benefits

Having a review by us or having an interview helps the traffic to the developers website. As was bought to our attention recently when we did an interview and reviewed a plugin for a developer who sent us snap shots of their traffic before and after the shows and the traffic stayed so there is some great benefits to being reviewed by WP Plugins A to Z.

Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich – The New Yorker

But in recent years survivalism has expanded to more affluent quarters, taking root in Silicon Valley and New York City, among technology executives, hedge-fund managers, and others in their economic cohort.

In private Facebook groups, wealthy survivalists swap tips on gas masks, bunkers, and locations safe from the effects of climate change. One member, the head of an investment firm, told me, “I keep a helicopter gassed up all the time, and I have an underground bunker with an air-filtration system.” He said that his preparations probably put him at the “extreme” end among his peers. But he added, “A lot of my friends do the guns and the motorcycles and the gold coins. That’s not too rare anymore.” Read original article here…. newyorker.com

Finding the Best WordPress Hosting

It’s a word meant to rank similar things in a given category by established comparison points, providing an unbiased view on how they stack up.

There’s no shortage of articles, reviews and directories on the web telling you what is the best at this or that, and WordPress hosting is no different. Searching Google for related terms will reveal a number of 3rd party and seemingly neutral purveyors of said information. But a closer look will expose the #1 corrupter of many of these lists:affiliate links. Read original article here…. pagely.com

And it’s no small wonder, with 91% of consumers in the United States checking their email every single day.

Finding the right strategies to use in your emails is a tricky thing. You need to think about what messages your customers will respond to, what calls to action they’ll click, and what will even make them open an email in the first place. You also need to review and improve upon your strategies so you keep making money. Read original article here…. woocommerce.com

This is a simple add-on to allow you to start your own confessional on your website, all confessions are anonymous. So you can allow what every you like onto your website. All done though ajax, this allows a bit anonymity to your visitors leaving confessions. You can pretty much have it doing what ever you like. Could be a fun thing to have on a site.

The Lowdown:
This is a 3rd party service but if your website depends on customers calling you and I know I have a few clients who depend on phone calls to keep their site going. This service looks at the visitor on your site and if it sees that they are looking to contact someone it offers a popup that will connect them to a account manager withing 27seconds. It does this by getting them to insert their phone number and name and then call what ever manager is free and then connects that manager to the visitors phone number. Definitely an interesting service to help with the human contact of a website.

Woocommerce Points System

This is a paid plugin from CodeCanyon.net. We have a link in the show notes that is an affiliate link, in full disclosure. This is a great new extension to WooCommerce, adding the ability to add your own point system. You can reward customers for purchases and other actions with points. They can then redeem the points for things that you designate, giving you selected products or services available to exchange points.
