As an Indianapolis web designer, we work with clients to give them the functionality they need in their website and, sometimes, utilize WordPress plugins to accomplish these objectives. With all of the options available within the WordPress plugin directory, it’s easy to find a variety of plugins to accomplish any goals we set out for. That being said, we do have our favorites! Here are our top 3 for the month of January:
It’s already difficult enough for businesses to keep up with the everyday operations and, therefore, SEO strategy is probably not something that crosses their minds. Yoast is a great plugin that keeps up with Google’s constantly changing algorithm updates, making sure your search engine optimization strategy is where it needs to be for optimal ranking results.
Having a great-looking website isn’t going to get you far when it comes to turning your website visitors into customers. Gravity Forms is a great tool to build WordPress forms with a visual drag-and-drop editor and a variety of form fields with conditional formatting. In addition to its user-friendly functionality, it stores your contacts and allows for an easy .csv export and even has a Constant Contact and MailChimp integration allowing you to build newsletter lists from your website.
WooCommerce is an essential tool for any eCommerce website that gives both store owners and developers complete control. Standards for shipping and payment options are higher than ever—but you can do it all with WooCommerce. This plugin supports drop shipping, free shipping, flat-rate shipping and even allows real-time calculations. WooCommerce also accepts major credit cards, PayPal, bank transfers, cash on delivery and integrates with more than 140 region-specific gateways like Stripe and Amazon Payments.
