Wordpress Plug-ins Every Internet Marketer Needs


Wordpress is a CMS, or Content Management System, that is easy and fast to customize. There has been a sort of myth, believed by online marketers, that Wordpress is only for non-commercial blogging, etc. But not really anymore because marketers have discovered the power of Wordpress for use in business. The fact is that you can get Wordpress to do whatever you want it to do. You can have your blog look and do whatever your heart desires with plugins and various widgets. Wordpress is helpful for so much more than blogging. And we'll show you, we'll talk about some very useful plugins that online marketers find useful.

ShareThis makes it easy for anybody to share your various pages and posts with the different social bookmarking sites. What it does is at the end of your pages, or posts, it will place a link box. When site visitors hover over it or click on it they are provided with a customizable list of different social networking and bookmarking sites that they can submit your site to. It's easy and only takes a minute to submit to Facebook, Reddit, AOL IM, Digg, and of course plenty of other places. This encourages site visitors to tell others about what they have found on your site!

Moving on, you'll use the Wordpress Mobile Pack to format your site correctly should anyone want to look at it on their mobile phone. You probably don't need to be told how prevalent cell phones have become, so it would be a good idea to take advantage of this. Cell phone users have the option of selecting the mobile browser display or the classic pc desktop browser. This way your viewers and readers can choose whichever format best suits them. They have a choice and are not forced into just one thing.

The one plugin that is so important to your marketing is Google Analyticator. This is a Wordpress plug-in that allows you to track your website visitors without having to install the tracking code into the code of your website. By now you know that the most reliable web stats come from Google Analytics. But please be sure to read these reports because it will help your business. If you forget to insert the tracking code, however, your results aren't just going to be skewed, they are going to be non-existent. The Google Analyticator takes care of that problem by eliminated the need for the code at all!

No question about it, Wordpress is extremely effective as a marketing tool for online marketers. It's completely free for anyone to use, and it's downright simple and easy as well. It is easy to customize and it very rarely runs into problems. The fact is that you can get Wordpress to do whatever you want it to do. IN a lot of ways it is an internet marketer's dream!
