Don't Leave Home Without These Wordpress Plug-insJust about all but the rankest newbies have heard the name, Wordpress. Among the general bloggers, Wordpress is a content management system that's highly popular. However, Wordpress is not only for those who blog, anyone can use this CMS including marketers. Regardless of the type of site, or purpose, Wordpress can be used for it.
It is often used by IM marketers for regular monetized sites, affiliate sites, sales pages, etc. There are other uses, as well, such as video sites, landing pages, squeeze pages, etc. It's extremely easy to customize, plus the choice for themes is stupidly immense - millions. What's more, using the right plugins you can pretty much make it do whatever you want. Ok - we want to talk about several highly useful Wordpress plugins important to IM marketers.
One particular plugin IM marketers will love is the FD Feedburner plugin. This plugin will make your RSS feed usable for a Feedburner feed. Lots of people like RSS because site content is delivered to their desktop, and there's no reason to go to the site. People can stay current because when you put-up new content, they'll know if they've sub'd to your RSS. People appreciate the convenience of RSS because it removes the need to go everywhere looking for updated content. The deal about Feedburner is it's a format that almost any reader is able to read. If you're an affiliate marketer, you can use the fabulous plugin - GoCodes by Wordpress. Everyone hates how affiliate referral URLs look, so GoCodes shortens them, cleans them up, and you can have control over how their used. And of course you'll be able to have more control over loss of commissions due to theft. Online shoppers are experienced these days. They can spot an affiliate code from a mile away and often delete it from the pages they visit. Well, GoCodes puts an end to that nonsense.
You can use the WP Greet Box plugin to inject some more of your own personality into your site. It has settings, of course, and depending on how they arrive at your site they'll hear a personal greeting from you. For example, if someone finds your website through Digg, a message will pop up that says something along the lines of �Welcome Digg user!� Naturally, you can set it up however you want. It's unique and visitors will feel like you appreciate them for clicking on your link. It is also a great way to remind them to submit your site to their favorite bookmarking sites and directories. Wordpress CMS is an extremely powerful IM tool to have in your pocket. This used to only be viewed as something 'bloggers' used, but online marketers don't look at Wordpress like that, anymore. Wordpress can be used effectively by almost anyone. It's not unusual at all to find marketers who have not used blogs before, but they're realizing how powerful and versatile they are. This is something that people can use even if they're never thought about using it previously. All the Wordpress plugins make it possible to do anything.
