Improving Your WordPress Website with Plugins

At a recent meetup we spoke about WordPress Plugins – What they are.. How they work… and How to get the most out of them…

As promised, below is a list of some of our favourite plugins… We usually install these on pretty much all of the sites we create – although there are a number of other specialist ones that we use for more specific functionality.

All of these (except for BackupBuddy) are Free and available from the Plugin Repository simply by Going to Plugins > Add New .. and searching for the plugin name.

  • BackupBuddy (the BEST WordPress site Backup/Migration plugin)
  • Google XML Sitemaps
  • Google Analytics by Monsterinsights
  • All In One SEO Pack
  • Contact Form 7
  • Contact Form 7 Honeypot
  • Duplicate Post
  • Enable Media Replace
  • Black Studio TinyMCE Widget

Remember..do not just install plugins because you can.. make sure that you understand what they do and that you need the functionality… also ensure that you keep them up to date.

Business Insurance for Small Business Owners

At a recent Meetup for the Brisbane Business Club, Grant Mason from Oraclegroup Australia, presented a fascinating and information packed session on Business Insurance – specifically targeted at Small Business Owners – and highlighting some of the tricks and traps every business owner should be aware of.

Those that were able to make it along learned a great deal about how to better manage their own business insurance needs.

Business Insurance is a VERY IMPORTANT topic for all business owners to address, and one that for the most part is badly managed if not totally ignored.  Putting your head in the sand is not going to help you if you are not properly insured.

Grant has  provided a brief document outlining some of the topics covered (as a PDF), that we have agreed to make it available to all Meetup members.  This document :

  • Describes the most important types of Business Insurance
  • Defines some of the Insurance Terms you are likely to hear
  • Outlines some advantages of using an Insurance Broker
