In Episode 4 of the Niche Site Tools Podcast, I provide a full list of the essential WordPress plugins that you should install on each of your niche sites. I will also detail a few optional plugins which can help to enhance the experience for your viewers.
We also touch on the importance of collecting email subscribers early on, discuss what free software you can utilize for your subscriber list/email distribution and we also briefly address the topic of WordPress themes. Thanks to Podcast listener, Jeff, for the topic suggestion for this episode and for the very first 5 star review on iTunes. You rock!
All of the plugins can be found by going to your WordPress Dashboard, Plugins, Add New and type the name in the search box.
