If you’re using internet to grow and build your business, and your website relies on WordPress (it should), then you should use these free plugins.


Go and take a look at your favorite blogs ans websites. If they’re websites are on WordPress, you’ll probably find some, if not all, of these plugins.

Hope you’ll find something here that will help you to boost your business.

1. Leadeo Lite

Imagine this scenario…

You’ve created (or embedded someone else’s YouTube) video on your post.

Then, at some point during the video, you (or whoever is on the video) mention something related to your business.


For example, let’s say you have a food blog. And you’ve embedded a video where someone talks about gluten-free food. Imagine if that video would pause at that exact moment, and show your opt-in form where a viewer can leave an email to get your free PDF “10 easy-to-make gluten-free lunch ideas.”

How many people would leave an email, what do think?

Well, Leadeo Lite WordPress plugin lets you do exactly THAT. It pauses the video that is embedded at your website at the exact time you want, and shows your opt-in form.


Give it a try.

2. SumoMe

  • and more... on your website

3. Facebook Comments

Comments on a blog post build trust. (Hey, if a lot of people take their time to comment on something, it must be good.)


Comments on a blog increase time people spend on your blog. (It takes time to write. It takes time to read them.)

Comments on a blog post increase the value of the blog post. (Sometimes, the golden ideas, tips and tricks can be found on people’s comments.)



What if comments could actually help you get more traffic?

Well… they can.

In other words, they shared your blog post, whether they liked it or not.

And Facebook Comments WordPress plugin makes it easy for you to add these comments on your blog.


4. Tweet This

“It is no measure of health to be well adjusted to a profoundly sick society.” - Jiddu Krishnamurti

And you can’t do much to stop them from doing that.

However, you can at least try to benefit from that.

What do you think will happen?

Yup, your social sharing will go through the roof!

Well, Social Locker WordPress plugin gives you an option to “hide” certain parts of your blog posts, and share them ONLY when person shares that post on one of the social media profiles.


Awesome, right?

If you’re promoting your business online, you probably use bunch of codes:

  • Google Analytics code
  • Facebook Custom Audience code
  • Facebook Conversion Pixel code
  • Google AdWords tracking code…

And to deal with these codes, you need either to have a developer at disposal, or you need to know what you’re doing.


Or, use Tracking Script Manager.

This free WordPress plugin will keep your scripts organized, so that you easily add new ones and delete the ones you don’t need, all without messing with the code of your website.


8. CustomerICare

Before they decide to buy something from you, people will most often have some pre-sale questions.
