The list of available plugins is extremely long, numbering in the thousands. Using the extensive selection of plugins available you can design your site’s appearance and function to suit your needs. Downloading is done via the WordPress codex site, and you just follow the instructions within the Dashboard and you’ll be all set to go. There are so many plugins that can be of use to you, so we’d just like to cover a few of them for you.
The FD Feedburner plugin is something all online marketers will find extremely useful. This plugin will make your RSS feed usable for a Feedburner feed. Some people don’t always want to visit a site, so they can subscribe to the RSS feed and have the content delivered to them. If you add new content on your blog, your subscribers will be updated via RSS and they can read what you posted. People appreciate the convenience of RSS because it removes the need to go everywhere looking for updated content. There are all different kinds of readers for different RSS formats, and Feedburner is a sort of universal format for everyone to use. Maybe you plan to use tons of images on your site – then you’ll want to check out SEO Friendly Images. Hopefully, you’re aware of the need to do SEO on your text content, etc. You’ll also help your rankings if you do image optimization on your site/blog. Well, SEO Friendly Images will make it easier to assign Alt tags and Titles to your images. It will auto detect any image that is lacking the proper tags, and it will set them according to your specs. What a time saver!
Your subscribers can stay on top of your site updates when you send them messages using the plugin, SMS Text Message. It’ll install a form for people to optin to receive your messages. The way it works, when someone opts-in, is they put their phone number into the form, and then they’ll automatically receive updates via texts. So it’s a good idea and way to inform your subscribers that there’s an update. But we feel we have to warn you that this could take time to do because people may not be comfortable with opting-in with their phone numbers.
