Premium Support On A Budget: Affordable WordPress Plugins To Increase Interaction

If you notice your blog is losing readership, or that your online surveys are not generating many responses, if any at all, you may have what is known as a “finicky” audience.

These people have to be drawn in to a blog or really be encouraged to respond to online surveys, so you’re going to have to put out a little more effort to get them to do these things. Using premium plug-ins is one way to do this, and WordPress offers several that can help you expand your readership or increase your response numbers.

WishList Products Plug-in

If you have a blog, consider using the WishList Products plug-in. This allows you to turn your blog website into a membership website. $97 will get you a single-license plug-in; $297 will allow you to use it on an unlimited number of domains.

The WishList Products plug-in is easy to install and maintain. In addition, it gives you the ability to control and manage your community’s content and member information, as well as other features you may find useful.

Gravity Forms Plugin

The Gravity Forms Plugin lets you create, edit, and manage your forms, which means you can decide how you want your online survey to look.

This is a commercial plug-in, so it offers many more features such as compatibility with other WordPress forms. This makes it easier for you to use forms without having to worry about whether they will work with other pages. Prices start at $39 for a single site support license.

Formidable Pro

Formidable Pro is another plug-in that allows your website administrator to create forms.

This program can actually take the place of some online survey software because one of its functions includes the ability to let your created forms serve as online surveys and other things. You can purchase a one-site plug-in license for $35 or an unlimited-site plug-in for $97.

AJAX Contact Forms

If you use JavaScript, you can use the AJAX Contact Forms plug-in. It adds a little “pizzazz” to ordinary contact forms, and speeds the loading process up so that your users don’t have to wait as long for pages to load.

A single license plug-in is only $12, which makes it a very inexpensive one.

Streamling Your Website

One thing you have to realize, however, is that no plug-in is going to improve a website that isn’t the best to start with. Before using plug-ins, take a few minutes to look over your site as it currently stands and see if you need to make any improvements there.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Is the information current and up-to-date?
  • Is the site attractive enough in its own right?
  • Are readers actually encouraged to respond, or has past experience led them to believe that you really don’t care about what they think or what they want? (Some causes of this may be forgetting to show appreciation for their responses or responding to comments made to posts.)

After you’ve answered these questions and resolved any issues that may have come to light, then you can start deciding which plug-ins may be right for you.
