For years, WordPress has provided companies with a simple way to create corporate websites. It’s never been easier to expand functionality with over 58,000 plugins. If you use WordPress, these six must-have WordPress plugins will help you improve your business website.
Contact form: WPForms
It should never be difficult for your customers to get in touch with you. If they can’t quickly contact you, they’ll bounce, and you’ll miss out on a future deal. With the WPForms plugin, you can make it simple for them to contact you.
WPForms is simple to set up, and the drag-and-drop functionality makes creating contact forms, conversational forms, email subscription forms, online order forms, and payment forms a breeze. You can even create surveys and polls.
eCommerce integration: WooCommerce
The majority of Americans (roughly 91 percent) shop online or begin their product and service research there. Customers will shop elsewhere if the website and online experience aren’t up to par.
With WooCommerce, the most common eCommerce plugin for WordPress, you can transform your website into a professional online store. There’s also a set of WooCommerce plugins that will improve your customers’ experience, such as:
- For bulk buyers, WooCommerce Wholesale Suite is a great choice.
- Customers can compare goods using YITH WooCommerce Compare.
- YITH WooCommerce Wishlist plugin so customers can save products to their wishlist.
- WooCommerce Multilingual for translation into other languages.
- WooCommerce PDF Invoices & Packing Slips.
Building landing pages: SeedProd
Conversion rates can be improved by 2.35 percent with a successful landing page. This is the average conversion rate, but some of the best-performing sites have conversion rates ranging from 5.31 percent to 11.45 percent. Imagine how much more revenue you will generate, even at 2.35 percent, if you use landing pages to sell everyday items or introduce new ones.
SeedProd is the most popular WordPress plugin for quickly designing successful landing pages without hiring a web designer or programmer. Over 100 models, color schemes, and font combinations are available in SeedProd. It comes with a drag-and-drop creator, easy-to-customize section blocks, and eye-catching headers, and call-to-action buttons. Integration with the premium subscription is possible.
Customer support: Zendesk
Customers will come and go as soon as they arrive. They will leave if you have lousy customer service. Customers become irritated due to long wait times, poor response times, misplaced tickets, and being shuffled from one department to another. Ineffective customer service will undo all of your hard work in attracting and converting customers.
Any company should purchase customer relationship management software. Your customer data would be centralized in a CRM system, allowing agents to access a customer’s history quickly. Zendesk and WordPress have teamed up to provide seamless integration between the two sites. Whether a customer uses your website’s contact form, live chat, or leaves a comment on a blog post, all inquiries are routed via Zendesk’s ticketing system. You won’t have to leave your website to handle requests on a different platform because all tickets are available from your WordPress dashboard.
Boosting website speed: WP Rocket
WP Rocket is a caching plugin that helps your WordPress website load faster. Customers despise having to wait for a website to load. A site that takes longer than 3 seconds to load would be abandoned by 57% of users. WP Rocket provides page caching, browser caching, cache preloading, and Gzip file compression, all of which aid website pace.
Website security: Sucuri
Every business is concerned about online protection, and WordPress has a solution for that as well. Sucuri provides instant security against website hacking and DDoS attacks. Customer details could be compromised due to a security breach, or the entire customer database could be lost in a moment.
It isn’t easy to succeed in the business world. It becomes much more difficult if you don’t have the right equipment. It is no longer an option to provide an easy, user-friendly, and seamless online experience. It’s a must-have.
Now is a good time to update your website if it is sluggish and clumsy. These six basic plugins are simple to set up and will help you take your company to the next level in 2021.
