What We Use

Whenever we are building a new website, there are some fundamental plugins etc that we almost always use.

They are listed below for you.

Paid Plugins

Elementor Pro Page Builder

This is, without doubt, the best page builder for wordpress that money can buy. We can't stress enough how important this plugin is and how much time and money you will save by installing this before anything else. You can also just use the free version.

Generatepress Theme

This is the only paid theme that we recommend. It is about $50.00 and you have unlimited installs and top notch support. there is also a free version.

Free Plugins

Just using the above you will be able to create some stunning websites.

Elementor and Envato have some incredible designs and layouts pre-made for you, that you simply insert and modify for incredible design work.

Once you have all this done, then you will be ready to move onto the next step – setting up your product/s

E mail software

As we all know, the money is in the list.

You need a reliable and cost effective way to send out bulk emails and keep your clients updated and interested.

After years of testing – we have found Mailerlite to be the best fit for us. It handles most things we need effortlessly.

It has a Plugin for WordPress which makes insering sign up forms a breeze. Or, if you use Elementor Pro, then you can use their forms as they can API Link to Mailerlite in the background and work their magic.

Mailerlite also works directly with Woocommerce, which is the Webs largest online shop software.

Shopping Cart Software

Amember


Thankfully amember will install this for you and connect it to your wordpress installation.
Amember is INCREDIBLY powerful and can do far more than any other shopping cart/membership software we have seen.
The built in features are incredible and the range of features are unequalled anywhere.
Support is the best we have ever seen.
We can't recommend this enough.
There is a HUGE learning curve and the documentation sucks big time.
This may be when you have us do this for you!
There is nothing that this software has not been able to handle.

Woocommerce

This is 100% Free to install and use. The free version will do for many people. Add ons can start to get VERY expensive per year as you find you need more and more of them. There are HUNDREDS of both FREE and Paid addons on the web. The learning curve is not as steep as Amember and installation is a breeze. Woocommerce is also made by the owners of wordpress - which means it will always play well with your WP site. We use woocommerce on a few of our sites simply because of the ease of WP installation and the ability to link to Facebook and create a "shop" on a Facebook Page.
