Best WordPress Plugins For Business

Best WordPress Plugins For Business

One of the things that makes WordPress such a great choice for business websites, is the wide array of available plugins. WordPress plugins are extra pieces of software that expand the functionality of the website. They are specifically built for WordPress so that you don’t have to write the extra code yourself.

 

Some plugins are paid-for which means that you need to purchase them at extra cost. However, most plugins have a free version that you can use at no extra cost. You can always upgrade to the premium versions if you need the extra functionality.

 

Here are some of our favourite WordPress plugins:

 

Yoast SEO

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is very important for a website. It helps search engines like Google find your website when people do a search using certain keywords. Yoast SEO makes the optimisation very easy by giving you an analysis of the keyword you choose. It tells you whether you used the keyword enough times and on the right places, as well as other areas where you can improve to have a better SEO ranking. The better your SEO ranking, the more likely your website is to appear in a search.

 

MonsterInsights

This plugin allows you to connect your website with Google Analytics. Google Analytics tracks and reports website traffic. It’s very important to be aware of where your website visitors come from and how they behave.

 

Sumo List Builder

Sumo provides you with an email capture form where visitors can enter their email address. You can export the list of email addresses and use it to send newsletters to your visitors to keep them updated with what’s new in your business. You can even customise the subscription form to suit your branding.

 

LearnDash

With LearnDash you can turn your ordinary website into an online learning platform, referred to as a Learning Management System (LMS). If you are interested in learning more about WordPress, you can head over to our very own LMS, WordPress Training 101!
