Let’s face it, if you’re not a coder, then you will have to pay someone to code it. Each of these features can cost anywhere from $100 to $500 to have someone code it on your site.
That adds up fast!
Some of these features have plugins available that can do the same job. However, with every plugin installed, you’re using up valuable resources which will slow your blog down. When that happens, you lose visitors.
Here are the 5 Signature Features
1: Message Board
The Message Board allows you to add short simple messages about your latest post, announcement, or promotion.
This will increase your click through rate. It’s on every single page and post. You can also make your message super targeted for a specific post or page.
For example: You write and publish a post about dog training. On your Message Board you can write something related to that specific dog training post and only ON that dog training post will you see that specific targeted message.
2: Above Post Banner
The Above Post Banner allows you to add videos, promotional banner ads, optin forms, or text.
This will be visible on every single page and post. You can make your APB super targeted for a specific post, just as with the Message Board.
Here’s a perfect example: I created a post about my Kale Shake Recipe. In that post I have a Promotional Banner related to Kale Shakes.
Super targeted and super related. This increases click through rates, increases revenues, and increases numbers all around.
3: Previous and Next Post
This feature here allows you to showcase your previously published articles. And if they land on your older ones, they’ll be able to see what articles is next.
If in case you don’t have or don’t use images for your posts, we got you covered.
We have pre-populated default images that will fill that space.
4: Related Posts
This feature is my favorite. It allows you to get new exposure to some of your older posts. Not only that, but posts that are related to that specific article they are on.
People love to read related articles to whatever they are looking for or reading at the time.
And if in case you don’t have or use images in your posts, we got that covered too ;-)
Just as with the Previous/Next feature, we have pre-populated default images that will fill that space.
5: Footer Optin
This section is so you can build your list, subscribers, and loyal fan base.
You can edit the text to fit your niche market.
That’s pretty much it.
When we first designed our themes, one thing we kept in mind was that we wanted to save on resources. We didn’t want you to install 10 plugins just so each can do one specific job.
Every plugin uses up resources. This slows your blog down drastically. People just hate being on a slow site.
Another thing we wanted to do was to save you money. We didn’t want you to keep wasting money on simple little features. Features that can cost an arm and a leg.
