      Hi, Thank you for stopping by, Which of the plugins mentioned here are Paid? A lot of the plugins and themes on WordPress.org are starting to use a freemium model, meaning you get the product free, but have the options to upgrade for more features if you wish. I hope this helps ?

      Thank you for the tip but we hardly use social media 🙁 This should change in the future once we’ve found a good social media manager.

      For now we heart contact form 7

    I prefer Formidable Forms, just because of the PDF add-on plugin called PRO2PDF, it’s awesome at filling in PDF forms with submitted data and emailing the PDF to as many addresses as I want. Both are free and extremely powerful business plugins on my sites.
