Below are plugins and services that I’ve used for clients and whole heartedly recommend.
If you’re looking for a powerful social sharing plugin to help you boost social shares, engagement, traffic, and conversion, then Social Warfare is the only plugin you need to use. The pro version will knock your socks off with the following features:
Floating buttons. | Display Twitter counts. | Optimized pinterest images. | Fully customizable tweets. | Click-to-Tweet boxes to insert into your content. Eliminating the need to install additional plugins. | Twitter cards. | Popular posts widget organized by the total number of social shares per post.
For new websites, I recommend Godaddy’s Basic Managed WordPress Package. At $12 for the first year of hosting plus a free domain name, it’s perfect for new businesses or bloggers wanting to test out a new niche. Daily Backups of your website files and database with free one-click restores AND truly helpful technical support. I’ve recommended dozens of clients to Godaddy this past year.
Pippity sets a new bar by delivering beautiful popups in a way that’s more in tune with your readers and gives you useful analytics that show the true effect your opt-ins are having.
Theme Frameworks I use when building or customizing designs to be awesome.
