5 plugins I recommend for my clients

Contact Form 7

1.  Contact Form 7

Contact Form 7 is free, easy to use, and simple form creation plugin.  The wonderful thing about this plugin is the fact that it has many add-ons that further diversify its usefulness.  This plugin also has quite a bit of documentation behind it as well as an extensive FAQ.  They also offer a support forum to help you with customization and technical problems.

 

Updraft Plus

2.  Updraft Plus

Updraft Plus is a free with a premium option back up plugin for WordPress.  You have two options for backing up your entire site.  You can back up on Google Drive or you can back up on Dropbox.   You have more back up options with the premium version of the plugin.  It backs up your database, plugins, themes, uploads, etc.  It is ideal to back up at least once a week just in case something happens and you need to go back.

 

Google Analytics Dashboard for WP

3.  Google Analytics Dashboard for WP

Google Analytics Dashboard for WP adds an analytics line graph to your dashboard to give you a first hand look at your data.  Its handy to see what is going on at a glance on a day to day basis.

 

W3 Total Cache

4.  W3 Total Cache

W3 Total Cache is ideal for anyone who has a very graphic intensive site.  This plugin cache’s your pages so that there is less server load and the pages load faster and help keep your users with you longer. This in turn creates a greater chance of conversion which is ultimately what you want.

 

IFTTT

5.  IFTTT

Strangely enough I just discovered IFTTT.  Its a brilliant tool that connects social media and your various other tools to create even more automation.  In fact, I used IFTTT to share this blog post on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn.  This brief description barely even scratches the surface of the diversity that IFTTT creates in its automation recipes.

What is a Virtual Assistant?

A Virtual Assistant or VA is generally a self-employed person who offers online administrative support services. Virtual assistant services can vary from person to person because each VA has their own unique set of skills they bring to the table. So when you are looking for a VA you should determine the set of tasks in which you will need assistance. Depending on scale of your business that may mean hiring several virtual assistants who are experts in their niche.

What is your Niche?

I bet you want to know what is the niche that my virtual assistant services are offered.  Well I work with entrepreneurs who are up-leveling their business and finally need someone who will save them time so they can do the things that light them up.  I am the person who does all the back-end web development for them.  I help them implement all the automated systems they need to create a smooth money making machine.  I also track all the systems so that they will not need to remember everything.  I organize all the information in a easy to find system.  I also do graphical design and help with transition as they grow and tweak their brand with the growth of their company.  If you really want to know what that is all about you should click Skills.

Who do you work with?

I work with a variety of different clients.  Some of my clients are Real Estate Professionals, Property Managers, Real Estate Appraisers, Media Companies, Business Directory Owners, Web Design Firms and so much more.

How would you help me?

Well I always begin with an assessment call where we look at your current website and we discuss your business and your goals.  Then we discuss what problems you have with your website.  Then I give you a FREE audit on what I see that can be update and improved based on my expertise.  If we feel like we connect and then I have you send me a laundry list of things you would like fixed and if you agree to the changes I suggest I will send you a quote for the work.  Once that quote is approved I will make the changes you requested.
