Recently I’ve been upgrading the suite of software and services that I use to run my business. As I go through this stage I plan to share my thoughts and opinions on the solutions that I work with on the chance that they might be able to help you. This WordPress Direct Review is the first in this series of reviews that I will be releasing, so please feel free to ask questions and leave comments so that I can not only share my experiences but also comment on the things that are important for you. If you’ve been using one of my solutions then I’d also love to hear how you make the best use of it within your business..
So without further ado…
My WordPress Direct Review
WordPress Direct is a service that has been marketed every year by the Thirty Day Challenge team to it’s participants. Essentially it acts as a dashboard to quickly install and easily manage multiple WordPress blogs in a single location.Further to this there are autoblogging options that allow you take user generated content from the web and share it through your website.
I first tried out this software at it’s official launch a couple of years back after it was recommended by Frank Kern, creator of the highly respected List Control internet marketing training course. Coupled with the word of Ed Dale I was excited to give the service a try.
At the time I was just starting to get into the world of blogs and blogging however I was skilled enough to install WordPress and a small selection of plugins. I initially started a free trial for my personal blog and was impressed at the variety of options that were available. Cut to the end of my trial and I decided to cancel deciding that I could manage my blog and install a few plugins myself. I still hold this to be true however I was missing out on the true power of WP Direct.
The truth is you can easily create a single blog and do everything that WordPress Direct offers free of charge BUT… When it comes to creating multiple WordPress blogs and managing them all through a simple interface I’ve not found anything that even comes close.
Getting The Most Out Of WordPress Direct
These days I manage multiple sites and blogs that operate in different markets. Even the ability to manage a small network of sites through a single dashboard is invaluable. The old saying goes that time equals money and that is never more true than when working online. Perhaps you, like myself, could install a new blogs, add some plugins and choose a theme with relative ease but what if you could install 10 or even 50 in the same amount of time?
Whilst WordPress Direct offers you it’s selection of free and premium plugins to improve on SEO, Advertising Management and simplify content creation. That really is just a small part of the offering, the real value in WordPress Direct is the ability to really scale up your niche marketing efforts without wasting a whole bunch of your time on the mundane tasks surrounding the set up of a new blog.
If you really can’t see the value in spending $2 or even $5 for each blog you create then I would question not only the purchase of WordPress Direct but also your business plans. On the other hand if you are ready to take your niche marketing empire to the next level whilst also saving time and money then WordPress Direct is the vehicle to take you there.
