WishList Insider – Forum Focus 320

What should you do when an update is available?

This “Quick Hit” forum thread is referring to a new version of WishList Member but the question can be applied to all plugins (and even WordPress itself).

Insider Action Plan: How To Layer Addicting Story Lines Within Your Content

Have you ever created a piece of content that you were sure was going to hit home with your audience? And, it turned out to be a dud. In some cases, worse than a dud. It’s frustrating and scary. It can make you question if you’re good enough to do this.

I’ve had this happen more times than I can count. In fact, several times throughout my career, I’ve considered giving up on information marketing all together and just going back to a regular 9 to 5 job.

But, I stuck with it and eventually discovered some dead simple ways to make your content addicting patterned after some of the most successful TV shows ever. In fact, once the patterns are pointed out to you, you’ll see them in almost every show you watch.

And these are tried and true patterns for getting people to anticipate and salivate waiting for your content. They’ll hound you for your content the day it’s supposed to be released. “Is it out yet, is out yet?”

Which means they’ll actually consume the whole thing, learn what you’re teaching them and take aggressive action on it. And your dream of making your living helping others becomes much more of a reality. But, it all starts with good, addictive content.

WishList Insider – Forum Focus 319

“It would be great if it could do just one more thing.”

This phrase is pretty common when it comes to working with WordPress plugins. It is also a fair request.

There are so many plugins available and they cover a wide variety of tasks so finding that near-perfect solution is usually possible.

An existing plugin that checks off almost all of the items on your want list is probably available.

But, it would still be great if it could do just one more thing.

This is when the search for a workaround begins.

WishList Insider – Forum Focus 318

Does your site include a member dashboard?

A page that is specifically intended as the area a member can access to view their account details or quick links to important sections within the site.

There are different options that can be placed on a dashboard and that is decided based on what you want to display. But the first decision is choosing which dashboard plugin provides the functionality you need.

It is much easier to find what you are looking for when you know where to look.

An Insider asks about a potential plugin solution created by the WishList Team in this forum thread.
