Top 3 WordPress Plugins (for security)0

Let’s face it: WordPress kicks ass!

WordPress makes building and running your website easier than ever. Everyone at ServerGenie loves it too, it makes providing support for you much… much.. MUCH easier.

Running a successul blog requires it to be free from hackers, fast loading, and be online at all times. The great thing about WordPress is that you can install plugins (in most cases free) that in the past you would of had to hire a programmer to complete for you. The amount and quality of plugins for WordPress is almost endless.

The top 3 plugins I like for security are:

1. W3 Total Cache (speed)

A totally free plugin that speeds up your website by caching popular pages and images. Google has made it clear that site speed is one of their ranking methods. In addition, research has shown that slow loading websites actually cost you sales. Make sure your website is as fast as possible.

2. VaultPress (backup)

VaultPress is a full backup solution that allows you to easily restore pages that you may overwrite or delete. This is even helpful because I have heard of some web hosts (not us), who do not backup their shared hosting packages. VAULTPRESS IS WORTH THE MONEY.

Another option is to use the Dropbox backup plugin (you must have a Dropbox account). I’ve tested both and VaultPress works the best, however, I also use the Dropbox plugin as well. I work in the department of redundancy department.

3. CloudFlare (security)

Cloudflare is really cool because it has options that can protect your site against hackers and DDOS attacks. Quite simply, the free option allows you to protect your WordPress site like most Fortune 500 companies do. The paid versions offer much more functionality in terms of speed and security. THIS IS WORTH THE MONEY.

Of course, there are many more plugins.. but these are my top 3 picks for peace of mind.

Although some I recommended are paid additions you should seriously consider using them. Backups, security, and site speed are essential in today’s World.

How to Take a Quantum Leap in Income0

Building an online business can be overwhelming.

There’s so much to be done like creating products and marketing funnels, building relationships with your customers, increasing conversion, and more.

…and that doesn’t even include getting your website up and running, keeping it up and running, having graphics designed, customer service, deciding how to process payments, and there’s more.

It’s too much for most people to handle and that’s why so few people actually build successful Internet-based businesses. The key is to focus on what’s important – and the marketing is the most important part.

Be A Marketer, Not a Doer

Whether your business is online or offline, the biggest increases in income come when business owners make the shift from thinking they are the doer to realizing they are the marketer of the product or services.

The one who transforms his thinking from being a plumber to that of being a marketer of plumbing services has taken the first step to creating a bigger income.

Plumbers are everywhere. The ones who make the most money are the ones who best marketer their services because that creates more demand for plumbing services.

If the plumber has more business than he can handle, he can always hire another plumber, pay him for his services, and create more profit for his business. The same applies to any business.

No Marketing = No Traffic

Focusing on important things like marketing means not focusing on things that aren’t nearly as important. Take websites for example. They’re important if you’re going to make money online – but without marketing that drives traffic to the website you won’t make any money.

Marketing is the important task. Web hosting is necessary but not nearly as important. That’s why the most successful business owners don’t waste precious time learning how to build websites and how to be a webmaster.

That’s not where the money is. That’s not the most important task for a business owner. That’s something that should be outsourced to a competent professional. And that’s exactly what I and many others have done.

Not All Hosts Are Created Equal

But not all web hosts are created equal. Selecting an inferior hosting service can be detrimental to your business and your income. You need someone that understands an Internet business and respects that any downtime is taking money out of your pocket.

You need a hosting service with a competent technical support staff that speaks English and responds promptly. You don’t want a bunch of engineers that only speak tech, can’t communicate in plain English, don’t respond in a timely fashion, and leave you frustrated.

A good web hosting service can be hard to find. The service can suddenly go downhill as it become more popular and the support staff becomes overwhelmed trying to support the growing number of customers.

The web hosting service I recommend and personally use is Server Genie. If you need one less thing to worry about so you can focus on what’s important, then I suggest you check them out for yourself.

Let’s Have Coffee Together0

I’m addicted to Starbucks.

I love the aroma, the atmosphere, and I love the brownies.

Most of all, I enjoy having coffee with you and discussing business.

Drinking coffee is when I feel the most creative.

Don’t you just love Starbucks? The atmosphere is second to none. That is unless you are there during the morning rush. Plus it can be pretty pricey when you get a sandwich, brownie, and a frap.

Instead of heading out to Starbucks, why don’t we stay here in the office (or home office) and have some coffee from our ServerGenie coffee mugs.

We can discuss our next promotion and what new marketing tactics we will be using to increase sales.

I like a bit of hazelnut flavor in my morning brew.

Where is your mug?

Oh good, I’m glad you found it. Do you remember how you got your mug? It was so easy.

Oh.. you don’t?

Well, maybe you got it when you submitted your video testimonial to ServerGenie…

No?

How about when you submitted that article on SEO best practices?

Oh good… you do remember. I knew it was one of those.

How To Get Your Free Mug

And if you haven’t got one.. it’s easy..

Just submit a video testimonial about how ServerGenie has helped improve your bottom line or made your life much easier.

If you don’t feel comfortable on camera, no big deal.

Just send us a unique article (we want this to be special for our readers) that has to do with running an online business. It can be anything really, marketing, SEO, time management, or even a success story of something you’ve done with your own business that other biz owners might find useful.
