Why You Need These WordPress Plugins Now!Plus, how to get the plugins installed and set up today!
(Special Limited Time Bonus Just Added – see below)
Do you really need these 27 plugins?
Sure. There may have been a time when some of these plugins didn’t matter.
But now, without these plugins, your WordPress site is at a huge disadvantage.
Your website is an asset in your business. Maybe it’s the most important asset. It’s the place where people decide to do business with you (or not).
>>Can you afford to have your site blacklisted by Google because it was hacked?
>>Are you getting all the traffic from search engines you should be?
>>Struggling to find quality images to use on your site? (images are huge in today’s social sharing world!)
>>Have you ever done without a key feature or “worked around” some issue just because you don’t have time to deal with it (or to hire someone to deal with it)?
Well, you are not alone.
In fact, millions of businesses using WordPress work at a disadvantage because they are exposed to one or all of these issues.
But it does not have to be that way.
With these 27 plugins, you can rise above the rest of these businesses.
Introducing “The 27 Best Free WordPress Plugins for Business & Entrepreneurs”
If you are worried that your WordPress site is not as professional as it could be…
Then I want to help you!
I will show you everything you need to start benefiting from these crucial plugins!
And, you should know: this is not some “theory” course or a “here’s the list – now you go and figure it out” course…

In fact, you will get the most out of this course if you login to WordPress and follow along with me! In four hours, you will have every plugin installed and configured.
>>Want to add an email newsletter opt in form to your site? No problem, I’ll show you the plugin to use and how to set it up.

>>Wish you had better images for your blog? No problem! I’m going to show you a plugin that works like magic to find high-quality FREE images you can use – and the best part is you won’t even have to format the images or any of that technical stuff!
And that is just part of what I’ll be showing you in this course.
Meet the Expert Who Will Help Find, Install and Set Up These Plugins
My name is Jim Shirley and I run a web design firm called Resultspress.
Over the last decade, I have personally put together well over 100 websites for my clients and for my own use.
I’ve taught hundreds of freelancers and entrepreneurs how to build their own websites with WordPress.
I work with a major multi-national media company and I consult with small “mom and pop” businesses alike to show them ways to squeeze the most profit from their WordPress websites.
One of my favorite things is putting together hands-on training videos. I have a knack for taking something technical and making it simple and easy to do.

Online Marketing & Product Development
Hey there! My name is Jim Shirley and I’d like to help YOU build your online business.
Okay, I’m writing out my biography here because it’s required. Frankly, I don’t like talking a lot about myself – I prefer talking about you and how I can help you.
But, with that being said, this is what I’ve got in something of a chronological order:
Bachelor of Arts in Economics and Public Policy from the University of Denver
Graduate work (on scholarship) in Econ at the University of Denver
I bailed early on graduate school when I got a job in the mutual fund industry.
In my corporate career, I’ve been:
– an editor
– a research analyst
– product manager
– product development manager
I’ve done work with people from around the world including: Africa, Brazil, India, Thailand, China, Europe, England, Canada, Russia, Japan, Australia, Philippines, and New Zealand. And these were not just quick chats – I worked with people in these regions for months and years.
I’ve started and failed with four online businesses.
And I have 3 online businesses that are going strong today (and have been since 2009, 2012, and 2015)
In 2004, I decided to finally learn how to build websites (it was something I wanted to learn since the late 90’s). By 2005, I had moved from coding everything myself to using WordPress. Since then, I’ve helped dozens of small businesses get their business online. I have lost count, but I have built at least 50 websites for my own personal use using WordPress. Today I have 17 blogs / websites online.
In 2007, my infant daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease and from that point on, I learned everything I could find out about eating gluten-free.
In 2010, I published my first book – a gluten-free shopping guide (hey, back then it was not at all clear what foods were gluten-free and I aimed to fix that for my family and others like us).
I went on to publish another four books.
I have written hundreds of articles and blog posts for my own websites on topics from eating gluten-free to self-publishing to internet marketing.
Through my various websites, I’ve created and sold (or given away) information products.
Sometime after publishing my first book, I got introduced to the subject of copywriting. It was not by accident – I needed to figure out how to sell online. The late Gary Halbert once said something along the lines of “…if you need a good copywriter, you’ll probably have to do it yourself.”
Anyway, I spend my spare time learning from the masters of copywriting and then applying that knowledge.
Sometime in my corporate life while working as the product development manager on $20 million a year software product, our technical writer left and we couldn’t replace her (some kind of hiring freeze).
Anyway, we were about to launch a new version of our software and we had no updated help documents. So I got Camtasia and started recording ‘How To’ videos to use instead. They were a hit and I had a blast making them…and I’ve been making videos of all kinds since then.
If you’ve gotten to this point in the biography (and you are still awake), go ahead and take my course…I believe you will be glad you did.
