Demo Page

Quite simply, it allows you to customise links on your pages to display an alert rather than go directly to the link.

o Unlimited Link Alerts can be created
o Multiple Link Alerts on a page or post
o Customised calls to action with every page and post
o Include text and HTML
o Add your own “box” graphic
o Set unlimited background and border colours
o Optionally set a background image
o Integrated opt in form – just paste your code
o Opt in form can use name and/or email
o Short Code Driven
o Developer licence during this sale only

Here are some alert example screen shots. You can pretty much design your own from scratch using this plugin.

link-alerts-01

 

An optin alert.

link-alerts-02

 

A simple alert.link-alerts-03

The beauty of this plugin – and what I particularly like about it – is that it sits there doing nothing until your visitor clicks one of your activation links.

When they do, then the alert is displayed to them.

THEY’RE the ones that actively trigger it.  ;-)

This alert could be to convey some important information about your site or services, an optin form for more information on the topic, or a special offer.

For example, a reader clicks a link to find out more information about a topic they’ve just been reading about and they get an optin form to complete before they can get to the page.

The nice thing about this is, at this point you know they’re good candidates for your product or services and so are extremely likely to fill in the form and join your list.

A sort of “squeeze” presented right inside a link.

Or, you could present them with a special offer and an invitation to find out more.

Or, give them some informative “Learn More” content to make instructions or training easier to follow.

The plugin admin is pretty much self-explanatory and very easy to use. Here are some annotated screen shots of the admin panel.

THREE Magic Plugins

Update: The sale for ALL THREE Magic Plugins is now live at just $24.00.

Buy now

***

From 6.00pm GMT today and for the 48 hours following, I’ve reduced the prices of three of my nicest plugins – Magic Content Blocks, Magic (Google) Fonts, and Magic Social Blocks to $10 each, OR for the next two days, you can get all three for just $17.

You can click each of the links on the titles to view the original pages on this blog and also get to the individual “buy” buttons there.

Magic Content Blocks allows you create attractive pre-defined content such as ads which you can then add to your posts and pages with a click. You can then change wherever the ad on your site appears just by changing the ad content once and it then cascades across all usages. A real time saver.

Magic (Google) Fonts lets you add any of the 600+ Google web fonts to your pages and posts. There are also some pre-defined effects that you can select from to make them really stand out, such as a “dark glow”, “green shadow” or “emboss” effect, plus some others.

Finally, Magic Social Blocks makes it easy for you to add SEVEN different kinds of blocks to your blogs that are all able to display social network buttons plus a little bit more.

For each block there are three different styles to choose from, and you can edit fonts and text colour. You can create as many of each block as you need, all with different content inside. For every block you create, there are three layouts generated. One for insertion into posts and pages, one for widgetised areas (sidebars), and one that’s a slide-in popup that gets triggered when your visitor scrolls down the page. You can select which slide-in you want to use from the ones you create.

So there we have it, three cracking plugins normally at least $17 each, on sale for $17 for ALL of them and after 6.00pm GMT, the buy button will appear.

And if you only want one of them, I’ve dropped the price to $10 each and you can get to the buy button for each one on the links above.

All with full developer (client/flipper) licences.

Something for everybody here I think.  ;-)

Profit Builder Plugin and Theme Review

Continuing my recently started quest, what I’ve been looking for is a plugin or theme that will enable me to build modern looking sales pages and also while having a clean looking blog too.

Well, I received a couple of emails about a plugin and theme combo that I missed when it came out.

Profit Builder Plugin and Theme

What’s nice is that the creator (Sean) is doing a special at the moment and is only charging 67 CENTS more (!!!) for the developer licence which allows you to install it on UNLIMITED personal & client sites.

That’s what I call a good deal.  ;-)

What I particularly like about this theme and plugin set is that it comes with more than 60 pre-made layouts that you can select from to instantly build a page. This includes the “traditional” marketing pages you might need such as squeeze, sales and JV, but also has a pile of other layouts too.

All you then need to do is edit the colours and the content.

It also ticks the box for my requirement of a clean looking blog.

With a bit of a proviso…

At the moment the provided theme component forces you into publishing excerpts on the front page rather than the full content, so I’ve just written to the creator about that to get it changed to be an option.

I understand why he’s done it that way – it’s purely because of SEO – but at the moment I like to put the full content of my posts on the blog page.

I might change my mind about that, we’ll see, and at any rate, if I really want to I can just use the plugin component with another theme.

That’s because one of the on-page options is to use a full width blank page template, and that means you can use any theme and still get the benefit of the snazzy looking pages this can build.

Now that’s what I call joined-up thinking.  ;-)

It would be nice if that small part of the theme worked the way I wanted it to, but maybe I’m nit-picking over what is actually a very powerful plugin and theme combo.

That aside, I like this plugin so much I think I’m going to use it to launch a new product range and site. More on that when I’m ready.

It has a ton of really nice features and almost everything can be amended in either the plugin, theme or on-page settings.

There’s also some included extras like an exit redirect so you don’t need to install a separate plugin to do that.

The creator has really tried to think of everything and it’s clear he uses this himself.

Here are just some of the features – I had to create a video to show off some of the other stuff so you’d understand how it all ties together.

o Over 60+ pre-designed lead, sales and marketing layouts
- Opt-In Pages
- Social Gates
- About Me Pages
- Sales Pages
- Coming Soon Pages
- Local Marketing Pages
- Member Portals
- Review Pages
- JV Pages
- Webinar Pages
- Bonus Pages
- ECommerce Sites
- Launch Pages
- Upsell Pages
- Training Series

o Easy to use drag and drop marketing page builder
o The plugin component will work with any theme
o Included theme for search optimised usage
o Create and save your own layouts/templates
o Save all your theme settings to use on another site
o Full featured typography section for INDIVIDUAL elements
o Optional included exit redirect on pages
o Includes the Revolution slider plugin bundled with the theme
o A ton of other cool stuff…

Okay?

I stumbled with some of the functionality as a) there’s so much of it, and b) it isn’t all totally clear until you get a feel for how it all works and ties together.  Hence the video above – I hope this helps you to get started quickly with the plugin.

You can get to the sales page here. There’s a 67 CENT developer special currently running, but I honestly don’t know how much longer this will stay in place, so don’t dilly-dally over this one.

This is definitely one to pick up, and I suspect you might start using it for many of your sites.

Support Desk Plugin

Update: The sale for the Support Desk plugin for WordPress is live at just $10.00 for a little while longer.

This plugin fully integrates with WordPress and gives it support desk capabilities.

It will then rise to $17.00, and then again to $47.

Buy now

***

This plugin will allow you to CHARGE for support via a 3rd party membership plugin.

As well as a support desk, you also get full knowledgebase and troubleshooter functionality.

o Support Tickets
o Full WP integration
o Knowledgebase (also includes categories)
o Simple Troubleshooters
o Knowledgebase, Categories and Troubleshooters in WP menus
o Editable emails
o Ticket filters and selection for support staff
o Multiple support desk staff
o User MUST be logged in to WP to submit ticket
o User can select the staff member (admins can change)
o User can upload multiple files to support ticket
o Tickets added and edited using WP built in TinyMCE editor
o and more…

One of the reasons behind this plugin is I’ve had several people ask me over the years if there was any way they could CHARGE for support.

It seems this is particularly important to many people, including consultants who charge by the hour and want to make sure money has changed hands before they do the work.

And the way you can do this is because this plugin is fully integrated with WordPress, it means you can opt to use a third party membership plugin to manage and charge your customers.

In other words you can make sure that only your genuine customers can get access to the support desk.

Not being able to charge for support has been a real frustration for many people, myself included.

Let me give you a really annoying (for me at least) example. Even more annoying is this happened a few times to me before I started checking up on who I was dealing with.

After spending easily a couple of hours of my own time puzzling over a problem someone had with one of my plugins and a certain theme, and then asking the programmer to make some changes which weren’t really necessary…

I updated and uploaded the plugin zip and told the guy who was having the problem to re-download it as it would solve it for him.

He came back to me and said he couldn’t as the page wasn’t there any more.

After a few questions, it turns out I was giving support to someone who had bought the plugin from someone else on another site – this wasn’t even a resale rights plugin I’d sold – it was one of my key products.

In other words, I was helping someone who was using a pirate copy.  :roll:

For a while now, I’ve been checking to see if each person who raises a support ticket is a genuine customer of mine, and not some “randomer” as my children like to put it.

Unless I know the person well it can take a few minutes to track them down.

Anyway…

This issue has been niggling away at me for a long time, and I eventually decided to do something about it and so it’s culminated in this first version of the plugin.

More info including a video showing how it all works is to follow.
