In my delusional world, Santa is a WP developer extraordinaire. He is, quite simply, a fat guy in a red suit with an uncanny ability to put some fat green in my client’s pocket by providing me with some great plugins – ones that can get visitors engaged and spending this holiday season.
I’ve made my list, and there are no “sweaters” on it this year. No, I’m looking for the proverbial “Red Ryder B-B Gun”. The official Red Ryder. You know…two hundred shot range with carbine action.
So, before you say “you’ll shoot your eye out with that”, let’s have a look at what’s under the tree. Let’s see what “WordPress Santa” has in store for us this year.
Nothing gets online shoppers in the holiday (i.e. spending) mood like the sight of snow and WordPress developers offer several free plugins for this expressed purpose. None of the three I’ve found, Xmas Snow, Simply Snow, and Snow Storm, require any setup. Just upload and activate.
In the final analysis, we got: A sweater
In the final analysis, we got: A football
If you’re looking for a quick and simple way to convey the holiday spirit, consider Xmas Lights.
In the final analysis, we got: A leg lamp
Merry Christmas Everyone is great in concept as the settings allow for one to play a holiday mp3 as Santa skiis across your browser. However, I found it to be very distracting as the character stops, starts and jerks across my homepage. I cannot see a jerky Santa helping to spur on shoppers to spend. rather, I see them leaving with holiday fatigue.
In the final analysis, we got: Bunny pajamas from Aunt Clara
In the final analysis, we got: A visit from the fire department
That’s my Christmas Story and I’m stickin’ to it. If you find a plug-in that you like that has boosted your seasonal conversions, please feel free to share it in the comments below.
