Which Wordpress Plug-ins Do IM Marketers Need?

Author : Tinae Craft


Wordpress is becoming more popular with internet marketers every day. And it's not terribly surprising, either. The great thing about it is that it's free, easy to use, easy to install, and easy to format. You don't need to have a degree in computer science or programming to use it. As far as plugins are concerned, there are more than you'll ever want or need. By using plugins, you can make your site do almost anything and look almost any way you choose. You can download the plugins straight from the Wordpress.org site, and the installation is really fast and easy. There are so many plugins that can be of use to you, so we'd just like to cover a few of them for you.

Social bookmarking is important and huge right now, so you can easily do that with ShareThis. A link box is installed at the end/bottom of your posts/pages. With ShareThis, any visitor can choose any sites they want, from a list, and then they'll submit your website to the places they like. It's easy and only takes a minute to submit to Facebook, Reddit, AOL IM, Digg, and of course plenty of other places. You're aware of the purpose of social media sites, it's all about spreading the word.

The Similar Posts plug in does exactly what it sounds like it does. When you use this plugin, after you make a post the plugin will find other similar-content posts and insert a link at the end of each post. Ok, so it's pretty obvious why this is a good idea; it will try to interest your visitors in other posts, etc. This plugin, and idea, has proven to be effective with arousing curiosity in a site's content. The last thing you want is to make it easy for them to leave your site for another!

SMS Text Message is a plug-in that allows your subscribers to receive your announcements of site updates via SMS text messaging. Ok, first it uses an optin form that it places on your site. So, in order to get updates they'll just input their number into the optin, and then they'll be good to go. So this is an unique approach to updating your subscribers of any site updates. But we feel we have to warn you that this could take time to do because people may not be comfortable with opting-in with their phone numbers.

Wordpress CMS is extremely versatile and offers a range of customization features anyone would like. Every day it is used by more and more internet marketers to manage the content of their various websites. It's possible that many consider the Wordpress platform as something for bloggers only. Not even a little bit of truth to that statement.

You can use this for any type of site and for any purpose. How ever you care for it to perform for you, it's possible when you see the vast array of available plugins.
