  • Risk and Reward at Black Friday with WordPress Products


    Black Friday is an anxiety-riddled time for WordPress product businesses. Should you do a sale? When should it start? What level of discount should you do? And what about new customers? Rich Tabor, who sold his businesses to GoDaddy earlier this year, summed it up: Black Friday gets its name from being the day in the calendar year when retailers finally get profitable (“in the ‘black'”). Almost certainly no WordPress businesses operate like this, and for most, it’s a great boost in sales before the end of the year. For some, though, it’s an essential event for revenue and being able to fund growth into the next year. And for a select few, it’s an art which brings a huge boost to revenue with no negative long term impact. This post is an attempt to pull together some lessons learned from this year’s round of sales, and pull out some key insights for the future. I run a marketing agency which works almost exclusively with WordPress product businesses: I’ve thus kept a keen eye on what discounts everyone is running, and have insight into how those worked out. I also spoke to a number of store owners for this post. You don’t have to

  • How to Effectively Brand Your Business in the Digital Age


    Your branding efforts impact how the world sees your business. In the digital age, these efforts are easier and more difficult at the same time. It’s easier to reach a wide audience and target ads to a specific crowd. However, there’s also a lot more noise online and you’re competing not only in your industry but for the attention of users who are constantly distracted. That said, marketing online is a must. By the year 2021, 3.1 billion people will use social media. At least 45% of the world’s population uses social media and many spend more than an hour on various networks. The Internet and all the devices we use gives businesses more opportunities than ever before to get the word out about their companies. But you still need a plan. Unless you have a grasp on your image, and what you’re trying to do with it, all of your hard work will amount to nothing. With that in mind, here are seven things you can do to effectively brand your business in today’s digital landscape. 1. Research Your Own Brand Your first step should be figuring out how your consumers currently see your brand. If you’re just starting out, you have a blank slate. If you’ve
  • BuddyPress Groups for a Collaborative Publishing Process of Blog Post


    In this post, I want to look deeper into BuddyPress Groups and how to make use of groups to collaborative publish posts in WordPress. WordPress starts as a Bloggin system and is all about blogging. But Blogging was never a part of BuddyPress and it was always surprising to us that the social network builds by core WordPress community not cover collaborative publishing. The WordPress BuddyPress Blog Network Idea Every user can get his blog in a BuddyPress multisite install. The blog network gives every user a complete own site to publish and design, but most of the time is quite heavy and It is a complex solution that does not apply to all the use cases. It was never possible to publish from member profiles or in groups and I believe that BuddyPress missed a huge opportunity in this area. This is where our solutions with BuddyForms Members and BuddyForms Post in Groups come into action. We start building BuddyForms as a BuddyPress plugin to add this missing functionality. Over time we build more and more tools around it and with the new Post in Groups extension, we get a new publishing experience in BuddyPress. It’s such a great idea to publish from inside a group with the people
  • How to Translate URL Slugs for Your WordPress Site


    A slug is the user-friendly part of the URL that tells site visitors what a page is about. For example, this article’s URL is https://translatepress.com/blog/translating-url-slugs and the slug is simply “translating-url-slugs.” So you would assume the page is about translating URL slugs, and you would be right. But what if the URL slug is in a language different to the rest of the page content? When creating a multilingual WordPress website, translating URL slugs is an important part of the process. Not only are translated slugs really important for WordPress SEO but they help improve the user experience too. In this post, we’ll take a look at why you should translate URL slugs, the process for translating slugs for pages, posts, custom post types, WooCommerce products and we’ll finish up with some best practice tips. Why Translate URL Slugs? When you create a blog post, page, or product, WordPress will autogenerate the slug based on the title, like so: And here’s what it looks like with the Gutenberg editor: Keep in mind, you need to have “Post name”—aka pretty permalinks—enabled in WordPress for human-readable URL slugs.
