Seriously, have you seen that mustang?
I don’t know if you are a car maniac, but I think you will find it seriously awesome even if you are not… here you go:
Now you know how powerful these 5 Wp plugins are… they will make your blog more badass than the Mustang.
It’s not like I haven’t talked about the must haves like W3 total cache (by the way, this is the best caching plugin), WP SEO and the like, so this time I want to tell you what else you need to build a machine for cash (boy it sounds awesome, but you know what would make me even happier? to see your blog becoming such a machine).
Here are the 5 Wp plugins:
Is this the best social sharing plugin… or what? I love it so much I will even buy you the add ons (the plugin is free to download) if you don’t have the cash, or are like most unsuccessful people (they always wonder and wonder and don’t really achieve anything)…
…I know you are not of them, you are awesome since you are reading my blog
Back to the plugin
Seen those awesome sharing buttons on Mashable?
Well, this plugin does exactly this – installs those Mashable shares getting, awesome designed, badass looking social sharing buttons… just like you see on this post.
Why are these so powerful?
Remember the times Techcrunsh were the king online? Then Mashable came along and showed them who’s boss.
How did they do that?
They leveraged (and still are) the power of social media. Their buttons were perfectly optimized to get more shares, likes and traffic. I think they are the king of social media marketing…
…which is why these buttons are so vital for your blog, for any blog. Since I installed them on here, I’ve been getting 5 times more traffic from social media… and I’ve been getting 40% more traffic from search.
Why from search?
Cause more shares result in more time spent on the site, and Google love blogs that attract more people… and keep them reading.
The plugin is free as I already said, yet you need add ons for the additional features (like adding more social sites to share to, views counter and the like, you will see them when you install the plugin)
I don’t really need any of the add ons, though, so you can be sure you can use it for free (I bought them all anyway, I have money… and liked the plugin so much I wanted to contribute).
There is only one thing that is not perfect, yet Rene (the plugin author) assured me they were working to get it sorted, and it is the plugin doesn’t share the SEO title. However, this will most likely have already been taken care of by the time you get to this post, so don’t worry about it.
And support is second to none… right now this is, in my opinion, the best social sharing plugin on the market (I’ve tried flare, dig dig and numerous other plugins and Mashshare is superior to everything).
Click to Tweet is nothing fancy, yet it is the plugin that is just right for those posts… you know, when you say (or quote) something so awesome it has to be ready to tweet in a cool box like this:
The plugin is free, you only have to submit your email to download it, but if you don’t want to get CoScheduale promo emails, just use a fake email… or use yours and unsubscribe, whatever suits you best… or maybe just stay subscribed and buy their software, it is awesome.
The plugin is used by some of the cool blogs online like Quicksprout and Copy Hackers… and I believe you already get the idea how awesome it is. I don’t use it that much, cause, to tell you the truth, I’ve been planning on getting more into it for a while but haven’t had time… but I sure think it is a must have for any blog.
I personally thought twitter was a waste of time until about a year ago when some of my most awesome customers found me through Twitter… now I like it more than FB, not to mention it’s kinda easy and not so time wasting, which is exactly how most people feel about Twitter.
One of those plugins that makes you wonder why it’s free… it’s that awesome!
I’ve been wondering since I first installed the plugin about a year ago. Optin Forms is just magic, it’s so simple and easy to install and use, you have to take a look at the form below this article, it took me like 3 minutes to set it up and is pretty much perfect…
…the plugin doesn’t have the tracking functions like Thrive Leads, yet I think if it did, it’d be almost as good… and better than most other lead generation plugins out there.
It is fully customizable (if you have CSS knowledge), but it also has several pre-made forms that you can tweak to your needs without even writing a line of code.
All you need to do is install it, choose your email service provider and list, tweak your form and choose where on your blog to display it. The only bad thing is you can’t build multiple forms…
…it still is one killer plugin for getting leads the cool way.
The New York Times first started using those little slideins that had a link to the previous or custom selected post…
…and now you have a free plugin that does exactly this – displays a link to the previous post at the the end of each article just like it does on this post.
This is a truly effective and not so much annoying (although you should not be too afraid of telling people what to do next on your blog) way of increasing time spent on your site.
And that’s what these end of post slideins should be used for, as they don’t work well for collecting leads, opposed to what some say.
I have used almost everything there is on the market and nothing comes even close… OptinMonster works, and it works more than great. It’s a bit pricey, yet I’d pay ten times that now when I know what it does.
It converts almost every second visitor into a subscriber, and I know not a lot of people could write copy as me, but I also know (cause I’ve tested almost everything as I already said) OptinMonster works amazingly great.
Not to mention it was written perfectly and is so light it became my favorite plugin the moment I installed it.
As a matter of fact, all of these plugins were written extremely well and would not slow your site at all… I would never recommend anything that will affect your site speed as you know how vital it is.
Install these 5 Wp plugins and you will have a blog so cool even Ken Block would be like: “Whaaaat” when he comes to see it LOL.
