How can a plugin help you grow your business?
One way to explain it is to compare your website to a baked potato. A plain baked potato is nutritious, but its taste is rather bland and that won’t change. Just as a bland website will remain that way unless and until you do something about it
Salt, pepper, and butter will make a baked potato more interesting and palatable. Just as adding a few features can make a website more interesting to its visitors.
Try putting some sour cream and cheese and a few bacon bits on your improved baked potato. Now you have something worth talking about.
Think of plugins as being equivalent to sour cream, cheese, and bacon bits. They allow you to accomplish more with less effort. Using them can make a website more entertaining (tasty). It is also informative, engaging, and a veritable feast in the eyes of the users.
Might a plugin or two work wonders for you?
Here are 10 that could.
I want to tell you a secret. You’re missing out with 80% of your visitors. Those high bounce rates? It’s not them. It’s you. Your site… And your content.
It’s not just you. It was me too. My content was static and boring. Sure it looked great, I know it did. But it was missing the mark. Now let me tell you the solution… And it’s actually really simple – Content personalization. Subtle tweaks in messaging, imagery and CTAs are increasing conversions for me by 300% in some situations.
Take for example a campaign with multiple PPC ads. Standard stuff – Different variations and messages. With personalization my landing pages know which ad a user clicked on. The CTAs display the right message and my images match. Now you may have seen this before, but what about when the user explores the rest of the site? Or better yet, what about when they come back? This is where the magic of personalization happens. The site just knows. And it responds. And converts.
Logic Hop brings the power of personalization to WordPress. It’s my secret weapon. And now it can be yours. Try it today and see for yourself.
