11 WordPress Plugins You Need

If you’re building a WordPress website, WordPress Plugins can transform your website easily without relying on a developer to do the work for you. Though there are many to choose from, here are 11 you should use. 

JetPack

Though many WordPress providers offer this plugin automatically, JetPack fulfills almost every need you may have with your website. JetPack allows you to build your website with built-in themes, helps you gather more organic traffic through social sharing, and additionally helps secure your website. If you’re hosting your own WordPress website, you’ll definitely need this plugin.

Yoast SEO

Yoast continues to be one of the most popular plugins for self-hosted websites. This plugin enables you to optimize your SEO, offers page analysis, allows for social integration, and even enables you to create sitemaps.

Google XML SItemaps

Though Yoast does enable you to create sitemaps, Google XML Sitemaps serves as a more optimized index for the search engines. This plugin makes it more simple for crawlers to search your website and has more sub sitemaps than Yoast.

Broken Link Checker

With Broken Link Checker, you can monitor every link on your website, and ensure none of them are broken. From links in your post pages, comments, blog, or even images, this plugin will notify you via email, and allow you to edit your links without going to the actual page itself directly from the plugin.

Beaver Builder

Beaver Builder serves as an easy to use drag and drop page builder for your website. Instead of having to use code, this website builder simplifies the process by providing content modules, different layouts, and photo/video backgrounds, in addition to responsive layouts.

WooCommerce

This plugin will help you monetize your website and start generating revenue through sales. Woo Commerce integrates easily to WordPress, and powers nearly 30% of all online stores. Unlike other platforms like Shopify and Big Cartel, you have complete control of your store.

Editorial Calendar

The Editorial Calendar plugin enables you to keep up with your content and be able to see just precisely when your posts are going out.

With this plugin, you can see your blog at a month’s glance, see when your content is scheduled to go out, and drag and drop posts to different days to reschedule them. If you’re blogging regularly, this is a must.

Code Snippets

PHP, a code that can be embedded into HTML, is essentially what powers your WordPress website. Considering this can get extensive and messy, Code Snippets will help you better manage certain snippets of code. Like plugins, snippets of code can be activated and deactivated, and this plugin will help you do just that.

Print, PDF, Email

The Print, PDF, Email plugin title says it all. Essentially, this plugin reads your site and allows you to download and preview your content as a PDF, and then, of course, print it. If you’re hands-on and like to edit your content by hand, this plugin can help.

Smush Image Compression & Optimization

Having a responsive website that loads quickly is important to continue generating more traffic, and having optimized images that still maintain quality but load quickly is important for this reason.

Smush Image Compression & Optimization includes helpful features like optimizing 50 images in one click, creating automation to optimize your content, size detection, all while preserving image quality.

WPForms

WPForms is an easy way to build contacts, collect payment information, create quizzes, surveys, and more from your website. Providing responsive and mobile friendly forms, this plugin is extremely customizable and eliminates the stress and bulk of creating great forms.

  • For someone who’s said, “yeah I’m not afraid of color” at least five times this week, I sure do wear a lot of black 🤨🖤 Throwing it back to one of the last times I got dressed up before COVID-19 – judging Indiana’s Distinguished Young Woman Scholarship Program with a messed up shoulder. (At least my sling matched my outfit, because fashion.) What’s your “signature” color??
  • I'm excited to be a featured speaker on America's Future Foundation's virtual panel, "The Economic Impacts of Covid-19." ⠀
⠀
How will this pandemic, and subsequent government actions taken to combat it, affect economic prospects going forward? Myself; Romina Boccia, Director of the Grover M. Hermann Center for the Federal Budget at the Heritage Foundation; and Dr. Orphe Divounguy, the chief economist at the Illinois Policy Institute, will share our insights on how small businesses, jobs, the national deficit, and your wallet will be affected by the battle against the coronavirus.⠀
⠀
Many of my clients have been affected by this pandemic and if you/your business has been affected too, would you share how you've been impacted as I prepare my statements?⠀
⠀
(Feel free to drop a comment or message me privately; I'm interested in data and/or anecdotes but won't share names unless you say it's okay!)⠀
⠀
Participation is free and I hope you'll join us this Thursday from 7-8 p.m. EST! All are welcome; registration for the event is at the #linkinbio
  • Dreaming about one of my favorite places ✨
Grateful to have had the ability to travel so much last year, but it feels very strange to not have the ability to buy a plane ticket right now. (Especially because prices are so low!!) Where do you want to go once the COVID-19 crisis passes? Seeing my family in California is on the top of my list! #havefaith ✈️🙏
  • Somewhat time-consuming things to do while in #quarantine: ⠀
⠀
1. File your taxes (the deadline was extended to July 15, halleluiah!)⠀
2. Get to "inbox zero" in all of your email inboxes ⠀
3. Declutter your fridge, closets, and cupboards ⠀
4. Take inventory of your monthly expenses, cut unnecessary spending, make a budget & stick to it ⠀
5. Write 5-star Facebook, Yelp, and Google Business reviews for your favorite small businesses/restaurants
⠀
(My goal is to finish all five by Friday.) What else would you add to this list?
  • I have the best/worst quarantine buddy....Lucky we’re in love 🤪❤️ #pickupafteryourself #quarantineandchill #engagementphotos
  • 🦀 A friend of mine shared this analogy with me yesterday. When you have a bucket of crabs, what happens when one crab starts to climb out? The others start to pull down the crab "on top" so that they can help themselves up to get out of the bucket. The same thing happens in life. There will always be "crabs" who try to pull you down whenever they see you doing something to get yourself out of the "bucket." Only run towards "crabs" if they're on a plate and slathered in butter, mkay friends? 🦀
  • Sorry not sorry for more engagement photo spam. Blogged a bunch more over on ChloeAnagnos.com 💕#linkinbio
  • According to a study by H&R Block, 66 percent of millennials have no idea when taxes are due. (Hint: April 15!) ⠀
⠀
Preparing taxes is overwhelming, annoying, and just downright stressful, but I’ve learned some tips and tricks that help me make sure I’m not paying one cent more than necessary.⠀
⠀
I wrote, "Get Independent: Tax Filing Tips for Millennials," for @affnetwork two years ago, but it's still as relevant as ever this tax season. Read more at the #linkinbio ⠀
⠀
So...who's filed already? 🤪

  • I couldn’t come up with a concept for our engagement photos at all. Clothes, colors, location, nothing. Kyle came up with this Old Hollywood/Gatsby vision that is completely *us* and I love it. Thank you so much, Tessa for making it all come to life! ✨✨✨
