Top 5 WordPress Plugins for Business

Posted by on Jan 22, 2013 in Reviews | 3 comments

For the day job I’ve been building a company website. I’ve been using wordpress, and have discovered some awesome plugins that every business should use on their website. These are great and they are free. Have a look below for the best wordpress plugins for business.

top plugins for businesses

1. WooCommerce

Why make it difficult for your customers to throw money at you? WooCommerce is a shopping cart plugin that is very professional, has a lot of options, and is free!

It has lots of options, and is great for both physical products and virtual ones. There are also many additional plugins you can get to enhance the functionality of it, most of them are paid, however.

A word of caution: it may not work out of the box for your theme, and it isn’t easy to customise the layout. That being said, it isn’t impossible, give it a go, but you may need to seek assistance of someone who does know a little bit about what they are doing (or can follow google fu instructions).
