219 – Create Alexa Skills right inside of WordPress with Shoutworks

So the podcast today might catch you a little off guard! It’s not something that I’ve ever played with before. Today we’re talking about Shoutworks, which is a WordPress plugin that lets you boost your voice SEO by creating an Amazon Alexa skill in one click right from inside WordPress. Wait… What! Is this even a thing? Why would I ever want to do that? Well, the short version is that you can use devices like Alexa to alert your audience / customers when you’ve got updates that they might be interested in. Marketers are always looking for new ways to engage and inform audiences, and this is certainly new. Find out more on the podcast today and leave a comment so that we know what you think…

218 – ‘E’ is for eCommerce

It’s another of our chats in the series called the ‘A-Z of WordPress’, where we attempt to cover all the major aspects to building and maintaining sites with WP. Today is ‘E’ for… Ecommerce. There’s just so much to say here because WordPress and Ecommerce are growing at a phenomenal rate. With so much activity, you’d think that there might be a ‘best’ way to build an online shop. But as is so often the case with WordPress, there’s multiple ways to achieve the same goal. So today on the podcast we talk about our experiences with WordPress as well as surface some of the plugins and themes that we’ve come across over the years to make your WordPress / WooCommerce shop a reality. Go check it out…

217 – Get your WordPress tasks in order with DocketWP

Today we’re talking about the DocketWP WordPress plugin with Andre Gagnon and Kyle Van Deusen, the project founders. So, what does it do and why might you want it? It’s a plugin that provides you with an easy to access to-do list right inside of your WordPress dashboard. You can sync this list in the cloud so that you, or your team are always doing the tasks that are needed. You also get pre-written tasks lists from industry leaders ready to download so that you’re up to speed about SEO, care plans etc. in as little time as possible. It’s a small plugin, but one which could possibly have large implications upon your productivity. Check out the podcast today to find out more…

216 – ‘D’ is for Database

It’s the 4th in our series of chats called ‘the A-Z of WordPress’ where we attempt to cover all the major aspects of building and maintaining sites with WordPress. Today, we are really going set pulses racing with the letter ‘D’ for Database! The word alone sounds incredibly dull, and for years I pretended it did not exist. Even now I do anything to avoid directly interacting with it. But I do now appreciate how essential it is to the health and speed of a WordPress website. I’m now quite interested in how plugins and themes interact with the database. All that being said, this episode is one of those where we talk about things that we don’t really understand. Being website builders, both David and I tend to just allow the database to exist and we try to ignore it. There’s loads in here though, so have a listen to the podcast and let us know what you think…

215 – Checkout CheckoutWC for a customised WooCommerce experience

So if you’re a user of WooCommerce, then the podcast today will be of interest to you. It’s all about creating the best checkout experience to increase conversions with the CheckoutWC plugin. The checkout process of WooCommerce ‘out-of-the-box’ is okay, but it’s not all that great. Yes, it works, but you know that you’ve seen better workflows; better ways of guiding you through the final stages of your purchase. The guest on the show today, Clifton Griffin, has been working for the last two years at getting the WooCommerce cart experience as painless as possible with his CheckoutWC plugin. Check it out on the podcast today…

THE FRESH WP GOODNESS PODCAST

Chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip... but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast. So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife with lovely colourful hexagons.
