January 15, 2017 — I have designed a lot of WordPress sites and I like to think my sites don’t look like they are themes. But because of my news design experience, I know how to size photos and images properly, how to get in and change and tweak the code and basically, I have developed design hacks or use plugins that make my life worth living.

First, we’ll talk email list: how to use Mailchimp for free (or $9/mo if you’re willing to invest a little bit) rather than the more expensive options like ConvertKit (which starts at $29/mo). Then we’ll go through how to spend $20 one time to grow your list with fake Leadpages popup boxes and landing pages (normally $25 per month or more!).
Next we’re going to create an editorial calendar for your WordPress posts and email list. We’ll talk about free plugins you can use rather than CoSchedule ($15+ per month).
Finally, we’re going to discuss design. We’ll talk two money-saving solutions: how to use free programs or Adobe Creative Cloud ($50 per month if you want to invest) rather than hiring a graphic designer, and how to use a $20 plugin to customize your WordPress web design rather than paying hundreds for a custom site!
