6 Premium WordPress Plugins Our Clients Get

June 19, 2012

We provide the best plugins for our clients

As part of our creative website design process, when we produce websites for our clients we want them to have best tools installed to achieve their goals. We pay the subscription fees on behalf of our clients for these 6 premium WordPress plugins that we trust to be reliable and rich with robust features.

Akismet

WordPress Akismet Plugin

Akismet is a magical plugin that automatically filters spam comments from blog posts and pages. Our clients do not have to go through hundreds of spam comments in order to find and identify legitimate comments.

BackupBuddy

WordPress BackupBuddy

BackupBuddy provides easy one-click backups of the entire website including the site files and database data. This provides assurance for our client who are not familiar with WordPress that it is OK for them to experiment with the site without fear of irrevocably breaking the site by accident. In addition, this plugin expedites the process of tranferring the website from a development server to the live production server.

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms

Gravity Forms is one of the most robust and flexible form plugins we have found. It provides a highly customizable form builder with an easy drag & drop graphical user interface, making it easy for anyone to update the forms. In conjunction with other plugins, we’ve used this plugin on one client site to create a completely custom Business Directory plugin. Gravity Forms, in addition to being useful by itself, provides a platform for creating custom forms, workflows, and listings.

WooCommerce Add-ons

WordPress WooCommerce Plugin

WooCommerce is a popular e-commerce plugin that adds robust shopping cart features to the website. The plugin itself is free to use but there is additional cost to purchase and use 100+ add-ons. We purchase frequently used add-ons such as PayPal Pro integration and robust shipping management add-ons.

WordPress Manual

WordPress Manual

WordPress Manual provides 30+ videos and text manuals for first time WordPress users. The manual can be accessed through the  WordPress back-end for clients to watch and read how to perform basic WordPress tasks. This helps clients learn WordPress visually, remotely, and on demand.

Advanced Custom Fields Add-ons

WordPress Advanced Custom Fields Plugin

Our clients are often looking for flexibility to update website content themselves. To support this we build custom form-based input fields using Advanced Custom Fields. This plugin provides a user friendly interface allowing anyone to update or add additional content to any page.

We go beyond coding

As a creative consulting firm we believe in providing value to our clients beyond simple website development. We listen to clients and proactively search for ways to solve their problems and add extra value, sometimes even without them noticing it. Providing these premium plugins is just one example of that value.
