One of the greatest appeals is that it’s totally free, easy to manipulate and install. There are really no previous skills required and that includes web design or programming. More importantly there are thousands of plug-ins available. You can literally get your site to look and behave any way you want it to-all within the WordPress mainframe. Plug-ins are easy to install, especially if you download them right from the WordPress Codex. Continue on to discover some WordPress plugins that will help your online marketing be easier and more effective.

In the play guitar niche, you probably want to set up some sort of WordPress blog for it.  Social media marketing is huge, and for very good reason, and you can use ShareThis plugin for bookmarking your posts/pages to social bookmarking websites. This simple plugin installs a link box at the end of every page or post. The link box expands when hovered over, and the visitor can choose whichever social bookmarking/networking website they want to submit your site to for others to see. It’s easy and only takes a minute to submit to Facebook, Reddit, AOL IM, Digg, and of course plenty of other places. Then they’ll be able to tell others about whatever they like about your website. Maybe you plan to use tons of images on your site – then you’ll want to check out SEO Friendly Images. Hopefully, you’re aware of the need to do SEO on your text content, etc. Did you know you could do the same with the images you plan on using? You can quickly add your image ALT and Title tags to all your images. You can set the settings for this function and then whenever the plug-in detects an image that does not already have the Alt and Title tags in place it will simply add them for you. What a time saver!  I used it for my Backlink Index Express post and it worked great.

You can begin relationship building right away by using the WP Greet Box Plug-in. It’s just a personal greet message that visitors hear when they come from certain sites to yours. For example, if you want to greet people from Technorati, then the greeting will be, “Welcome Technorati user!” So depending on your marketing, you’ll customize the message to greet people from any website. It’s just a way to help make visitors feel appreciated for following a link to your site. It will also serve to remind people to do some bookmarking for you.

WordPress is a fantastic content management system. No matter what your website needs are: blog, landing page, squeeze page, opt-in page, business site, etc, WordPress can get it done for you. There are so many different plugins available, so you can do with it as your heart pleases. As an internet marketer you need a website that is fully functional and easy for you to customize.
