For anyone aiming to create and manage a blog, there are a lot of things to consider, especially when it comes to looking for plugins that will help you increase your blog’s potential.
Every WordPress plugin has a corresponding function that make your site better for it. WordPress plugins come in all kinds of shapes and sizes, many of them even performing the same basic functions. Email marketing plugins, for example, are there to help you create email lists for your fans and subscribers. WordPress popup plugins help you in acquiring those subscriptions.
Jetpack, on the other hand, is one particular plugin that aims to do it all. It’s simple and convenient home page allows you to browse through each and every one of its functions that range from managing comments to check your spelling and grammar.
Not only that, Jetpack also has the extensions that will help you better market and manage your blog. These are merely some of Jetpack’s qualifications:
1. Email Subscriptions
Jetpack allows you to create contact forms to generate email subscriptions to your blog. And it allows you to do this simply and efficiently. Add to that the option to also subscribe to your comments, wherein readers and visitors will be able to get a brief email informing them of any updates to the comments section of each of your posts, making it easier for anyone to follow the exchange on your blog diligently.
2. Shortcode Embeds
Shortcodes are a great way to be efficient when writing and editing posts and pages. They provide shortcuts to accessing certain characters and codes that will help make your posts and pages more appealing and organized. For example, there are shortcodes for generating dropcaps and info boxes that help separate information within your postâ€”and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.
3. Social Media Sharing
Believe it or not, incorporating social media buttons and sharing is not a default function of blogs and blogging services. Mostly these are added to the website through plugins. Jetpack is one such plugin. With the simple click of a button you can automatically add any and nearly every social media button at the bottom of each of your posts.
4. Spelling and Grammar
There are those who write their posts on a word processor with a built-in spell check in order to minimize any spelling and grammar mistakes that they might incur in their writing. However, copying your article and pasting it onto WordPress means that you include the formatting into your post (which overrides your default formatting that’s already incorporated into your blog’s theme and code). To avoid that, Jetpack has in its repertoire its very own spelling and grammar check.
5. It’s Easy and User-Friendly
Jetpack is a breeze to install. No complicated steps. Once you have it installed, Jetpack’s homepage on WordPress gives you a great overview of all the functions that you can apply to your blog. Plus, it also provides information for each and every one of those extensions, saving you the time and effort of having to do a Google search.
All in all, Jetpack is a plugin that can further help you market your blog, increase traffic and email subscriptions, and raise the quality of your copywriting. What better WordPress plugin to help you with you website than Jetpack?
