Top 5 essential WordPress plugins to help your business grow:

Hello bar is a simple plugin with one objective: to grow your subscriber list, or online sales and despite its simplicity; it does an incredible job of it, the wiggle adds a nice touch too!

  1. Start by adding your business colors & your choice of message.
  2. Choose a goal for your bar: Drive traffic, Collect emails, drive social engagement, or just make an announcement.
  3. Install the plugin and your hello bar will start showing across your site

On the surface hello bar is a small strip that sits at the top of your web page.  It directs visitors where you want them or makes an announcement, but behind the scenes it’s a whole lot more:

  • Show multiple bars (up to 10 on the free plan)
  • Behavior activated content
  • A/B testing
  • Conversion results
  • Choose between bar, slide-out, page takeover, center screen pop-up.

Overall Hello Bar is simple but at the same time extremely powerful.  It’s perfect if you want a way to generate more leads or sales from your website.

You can use the plugin free (limited visibility to 1 in 10 visits) or go for Pro at $12 per month for more features.

Just remember you must create an account to download your bespoke plugin.



Instapage – Laser targeted landing pages, made easy

Plugin link: https://wordpress.org/plugins/instapage

Company site: http://www.instapage.com


Instapage is a landing page creation tool enabling you to quickly create high-converting sales pages to add to your WordPress site.

The tool uses a drag & drop editor which is a significant appeal to most of its users.  Pages can be created from 100s of unique templates or from scratch with no programming knowledge needed!

The best feature is perhaps the ability to integrate opt-in forms with popular email providers such as Constant Contact, Mail Chimp & Get Response.

Prices start at free for 1 landing page and max 100 visitors per month then $29 per month for unlimited landing pages and 5000 visits.

In my opinion every website should have at least one landing page, why not give Instapage a try, it’s free anyway.
