You Don’t Know Everything About WordPress…Yet

 

 For WordPress Beginners and Veterans – A Handbook!

 

I know some of you are thinking of starting a WordPress self-hosted blog, but it seems rather overwhelming, doesn’t it? I thought it was when I began this blog in 2007. I had no clue what to do at all. I just knew that WordPress was the best blog platform to use. Believe it or not, there is a lot of information out there to help you get started. But most of the time it’s spread all over the Internet and Googling it is time consuming. That’s why I’m sharing the below article with you. Even if you are a current WordPress author I bet you will find something useful to use from this handbook.

 

I don’t think it’s possible to know too much about blogging with WordPress, do you??  With that in mind, and much more profoundly written than I ever could, I would suggest that you keep and read this super valuable article by Devesh entitled The WordPress Handbook – 55 Resources For First Time WordPress Users.

GrabPress WordPress Plugin For Quality Videos Now Served Here

Grabpress

 

Grabpress

We’re trying out a new WordPress plugin for this blog to enhance the amount and value of articles here. They will be in the form of videos and the feed for them will be through the GrabPress plugin created by Grab Media, and auto-posted at least once a day. So far, the sources I have chosen for the videos are Martha Stewart Living and LeGourmet.tv. Those two should be family friendly enough for all my readers. I hope that there will be some interesting recipes the plugin will auto-post for me. No, this isn’t a cooking blog per se, but food cooked by my ancestors is one of my interests, so it’s not too far off the mark. ;)

If you’re considering using GrabPress on your WordPress blog it is very easy to download the plugin and upload it to your blog via your dashboard. From there, you will find how to customize it using the “gear” looking icon in your left menu bar.

How GrabPress Works

The Grabpress plugin gives your editors the power of our constantly updating video catalog from the dashboard of your WordPress CMS. Leveraging automated delivery, along with keyword feed curation, the Grabpress plugin delivers article templates featuring video articles that compliment the organic content creation your site offers.

As an administrator, you may use Grabpress to set up as many feeds as you desire, delivering content based on intervals you specify. You may also assign these feeds to various owners, if your site has multiple editors, and the articles will wait in your drafts folder until you see a need to publish. Additionally, for smaller sites, you can automate the entire process, publishing automatically and extending the reach of your site without adding work to your busy day.

To get started, select a channel from our catalog, hone your feed by adding keywords, set your posting interval, and check the posting options (post interval, player style, save as draft or publish) for that feed to make sure the specifications meet your needs. Click the preview feed button to see make sure your feed will generate enough content and that the content is what you are looking for. If the feed seems to be right for you, save the feed and you will start getting new articles delivered to your site at the interval you specified.

I’m not an affiliate of Grab-Media, so this is just an informational article for WordPress blog authors.

EasyAzon WP Plugin Makes Earning A Snap

EasyAzon

I’ve just started using a new WordPress plugin called EasyAzon which, as you might have guessed, is for use with Amazon purchases.  One of the reasons I’ve adopted it is because I’m always looking for ways to integrate automatic monetization using this blog.  Also, one of the things I’ve noticed is that Kindle’s are really coming down in price and if you would like to buy one through my site it helps to promote this blog.

Subscribers Magnet Plugin – Our Review

I’ve been waiting for this newest MaxBlogPress Plugin for quite a while, and now it’s almost here.  Tomorrow is the big day and I’ll be getting mine, that’s for sure!

http://www.maxblogpress.com/go.php?offer=bankduck1&pid=35

Last week I had the great pleasure to download, and test-drive a brand-new plugin from MaxBlogPress creators; it’s called ‘Subscribers Magnet’… perhaps you have already heard or read reviews about it!

Here’s my opinion about it and why I think you should or should NOT buy it!

First of all, ‘Subscribers Magnet’ is a WordPress plugin which will rapidly build your email list by using the technology in some unconventional and unique ways. It’s unobtrusive and highly impactful. Watch this video to see it in action.

You have the option to add your opt-in form all over your blog, and actually ‘seduce’ your visitors to join your list, in a very friendly manner.

You can add your form in your blog sidebar, in the footer bar, within the post itself and even in the comments.

The most exciting part about this little plugin is that you have full control over the look, feel, location and functionality of your forms; the plugin works with AWeber, GetResponse, and all the other major autoresponders out there.

What I don’t like about this plugin is that it’s too EASY to use. You don’t need any html coding or programming skills. And I think with the ease of use, it’ll attract people who will wrongly utilize it, and  just like with any software or method, it’ll decrease its value and effectiveness overtime.

Yet, in the hands of potent and smart bloggers, this is so powerful, it could triple your sign-up rate almost overnight, without you having to get more blog visitors than you’re already getting. For example, if you actually get 100 unique visitors to your blog on a daily basis [on average] and you get a 5% conversion rate, meaning 5 subscribers, then using this plugin, you could get 15 subscribers instead, from the same amount of traffic.

If you’re all about optimization, you’re going to love the plugin — that’s for sure!

For example, imagine your visitors landing on your blog. This plugin will automatically fill the visitors’ name/email in the opt-in form on your blog. They won’t have to type in their email and name anymore. It’s all done for them, on auto-pilot!

Now, please listen closely. You should NOT buy ‘Subscribers Magnet’…

1. If, once you finish reading this plugin review, still don’t see its real value
2. If you receive less than 10 visitors a day to your blog
3. If you don’t plan to actually test-drive it on your blog.

On the other hand, you should BUY ‘Subscribers Magnet‘…
1. If you want to double, triple and even quadruple your subscription rate ‘overnight’ – and do it over and over again, day and night, week after week, month after month!

2. If you are sick and tired of not getting optimum list conversion and want to get the maximum from your blog’s real estate by placing your opt-in form in strategic, non-intrusive locations, where anybody can see it.

P.S. Here are some other mind-blowing features, perhaps not found elsewhere:

A. You can a show footer bar which is highly visible but not obnoxious. Very good for turning first time visitors into subscribers.

B. You can SEND “automatic” and highly-personalized ‘thank you messages’ by email, on the first occasion someone comments on your blog? Think of the possibilities! In that message you can invite them to join your newsletter or rss feed. It’s another “friendly” reason to bond trust with your readers and get them on your list, in a non intrusive way!

C. You have unique tracking available for each subscription method – you will know for sure which forms perform better than others; with this new found knowledge, you’ll be able to boost your sign-up rate like never before!

P.P.S. Download your copy of ‘Subscribers Magnet’ PLUGIN and receive a free copy of “Multiple Hit Strategy” with your purchase. This bonus item is actually a step-by-step manual detailing the multiple hit strategy for rapid list building.
