With so many plugins available for your self-hosted WordPress site, it can often be really tough to choose the ones that best suit your needs. Currently, there are nearly 60,000 plugins in the official Plugin Directory, not to mention countless premium plugins available for purchase from a host of different companies.
In a WP Elevation poll from 2017, WordPress consultants named blogging as one of the top five ways through which they get new business -and it makes sense. “Do as I say, not as I do” is not a principle WordPress consultants can afford to live by, which is why maintaining your own WordPress blog and website must be part of your business strategy.
Jetpack is an amazing plugin that brings tons of features from Automattic – the core WordPress team – to your self-hosted WordPress site. Features that were previously only available to WordPress.com users can now be accessed on self-hosted platforms thanks to Jetpack.
I just got done this past month with a quick redesign of the BelovedCompanions,com website for Dave Olsen here in Avon CT the town in central CT where I am now based out of. Beloved Companions is a leading provider of pet funeral, cremation, and after-life services in Connecticut & the New England states.
So using SiteSucker I captured his existing website content and then produced a new WordPress website design for him utilizing that old content and then designed and engineered a new homepage experience. We also have some other features (and pages) we’ll be adding to the site in 2018 as we work with Dave on some new inovative service offerings and client enhancements he’ll be deploying in the coming weeks and months.
Anyway, what do you all think of the website experience…and if you’re at all local to Dave or just want some of his perspective on pets you can visit the Beloved Companions FaceBook page.
Beloved Companions, LLC was founded by Dave Olson, in 2012. We have years of experience caring for pet companions and families, from all walks of life. Each pet companion family comes to us because they know we are leaders in our profession, dedicated to excellence in service, and have the highest integrity.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter how many restrictions you put on the WordPress admin area for your clients. Even if they’re prohibited from causing (too much) harm to their site, that doesn’t mean they won’t be left feeling helpless once you hand over their new and improved site to them.
