WordPress is one of the most widely-used content management systems (CMS) for a good reason: it can be easily tweaked and customized to your liking. However, the flexibility of WordPress to accommodate different website types, from blogs to e-commerce, hinges on the WordPress plugins used to help achieve the site owner’s goals.

We may be bloggers, content providers, writers, or whatever you want to call yourself, but at the end of the day, we are also consumers. If you think about it, when we’re not writing, we’re reading. Or playing games, in some cases.

But at the same time, they are just the tip of the iceberg and lots more stuff is sitting below the surface (both from a management, as well as money making perspective).
Here are 5 things your blog needs that you may not have thought of.
If you’re not measuring your website or business’ performance, or keeping track of client interactions and relationships then you’ve got a lot of catching up to do. As we grow towards learning more about social and business triggers, we realize that having valuable data truly is invaluable. Regardless of whatever type of venture you’re running online. This is the reason for Client Relationship Management (CRMs) becoming so popular in recent times and although the term is new to a majority of us, the term and activities have been around since the 90’s.
Essentially, CRM refers to the art of using technology to synchronize activities and data from all departments in a business to better understand and relate to clients. It’s about knowing your customers, your readers and your audience. The more you know about your prospects and clients the better your position will be for developing successful strategies to monetize. CRMs ensure that you’re well equipped to keep track of this oftentimes overwhelming data. Read More

You’ll understand then, that when the idea of using a popup plugin for BloggingPro (and other Splashpress Media sites) were brought up, I was less than enthusiastic. Then again, I recognize the fact that many other big web sites are using popups – not to mention my belief in trying something at least once and seeing how it goes. Read More
Got a slow website? I know how frustrating it can be to open your website only to wait 3 minutes until it fully loads. If your website garners many daily visitors, I can only imagine the sheer panic you may feel when you open your website only to see that it’s not loading at all. “How many visitors am I losing this very moment?” you may wonder.

Questions and Answers sites have been around for some time now, and we have some very good examples of this in sites like Quora, Stack Exchange, and Answers.com. But what about your own site? How would a Q&A section fit in? Would a Q&A app be useful to help your visitors become customers?
Q&A tools come in many shapes and sizes, but one of the more interesting things about Q&A is how it can engage with random visitors to your page. Take a traditional web page, with an FAQ link and a Contact Us form. The only way a customer can get in touch with that site is by sending an email or filling in a form. If that customer has a question, they have to fill in all their details, and send them on. Read More
