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.

Thank Our Donors

We would like to thank our donors to the show, everyone who donates $50 or more will be acknowledged here with a mention and a link back to their page and all those below will be anonymous

$50 from Jez at Jezweb Pty Ltd

We’re donating this week on behalf of Jezweb client Simplifying Business – https://www.myprivatepractice.com.au  which is a training course provider to help doctors improve their businesses. Something interesting I found this week was SSLs for Free, https://www.sslforfree.com/  whilst I’ve been using lets encrypt with our client sites I had a situation where the host a site was on didn’t have lets encrypt integration, rather than paying for a cert though I was able to get a freebie from this site.
Thanks to all donors who came in under $50
You can now donate though Patreon at https://patreon.com/wppluginsatoz where you can donate on a monthly basis. As an incentive if you donate $40 a month you will gain access to the exclusive plugin tutorial videos on how to setup and use the plugins we review and use.

John’s Rant: What to rant about?
