We love WordPress! If you need to have a presence online, there is no better platform to allow you to not only have a beautiful website, but a supremely functional one.
Plugin Love #1
I will be sharing my favorite plugins, why I love them and how you can use them to improve your Online Marketing. Everyone knows the old adage, a picture is worth a 1000 words, and its true! But don’t get into trouble by downloading any old image you happen to find in a google image search.
In the last few years a number of free image sharing sites have popped up across the internet. I go into great detail on the Free Image Page, found here. But this post is about a quick and easy way to use pixabay images in your blog post. Its a plugin called Pixabay Images with 30,000+ downloads to date, it looks to be a robust solution to popping images into your posts and pages, for free, and never worrying about that crazy letter coming from the Getty Images legal counsel, who scour the web looking for potential copyright infringement lawsuits!!
Take a look at what I found with one click! (ok, I love sunrise on the beach!)
The plugin will automatically add attribution, but it’s not required, and you just have to remove it from the Caption setting in wordpress, if you don’t want to use it. Pixabay offers some very professional images, even with business themes, like this (keyword: woman shopping)
and this (keyword: family having fun, sometimes a touch of retro is what it takes)
So enjoy Pixabay Images, get creative and fun with it!
