My top tip is “if it looks too good to be true, then 99% chance it is”

If you receive an email e.g.

- you’re due a tax refund

- you have won $10 million

- Free $500 gift card

99 times out of 100 they are fake and are after something

My second tip is “treat every link as a fake”...

If you receive an email with a link in it, treat it like a bomb, don’t click it and delete the email, go to the website where it was sent from and check your balance / messages directly.

Online security is so simple but most people become dumb and act stupid in front of the computer, you wouldn’t leave your car unlocked, you wouldn’t expect someone to give you $1million in the street so why the hell do it online?

Fraudsters only make money from our own stupidity, 99% of online scams are so easy to spot if you take 5 seconds to read the email closely and not just go on the obvious details.

As above, you can have a free version of your plugin as long as they aren’t identical e.g.

Free versions does x job

Paid version does x, y and z jobs

It’s called marketing, a lot of the best WordPress plugins (on the WP site) have free versions and premium

Any ecommerce system will handle online downloads e.g. Opencart (my favourite), Magento, Prestashop etc

Your best bet is to demo each and see which one does what you need now, and does what you might need in xx months

Pixelful

In the best intentions, it might be worth getting someone else to do the support as you seem to be quite brutal and condescending, you need to be supportive and basically hand hold some customers.

These products are your babies but you’re struggling to let your feelings go and this ends up being projected onto the customer.

If you spoke to me (as a customer) like you did then I would be rating 1 star and writing bad reviews of you online, I am paying for a premium product I expect to be supported even if you can’t help with my query, you could point me in the direction of someone who could e.g. customisations etc

Unfortunately most buyers will want some form of support and you’re pissing your buyers off who are less likely to buy from you again and to recommend your items.

Support isn’t mandatory but good support is good manners.

If you want to know who the best SEO expert is then search on google for SEO expert, anyone in the top ten will be great. Then do the same search every week for a few weeks and you’ll have your answer.

poor advice, the only SEO’s that target keywords like that are big agencies who will use any sort of tactic to get you to #1, as I said above the best way to get an SEO is through recommendations

The problem is anyone can pretend to be an expert and there isn’t a lot you can do to check they can walk the talk but a few tips I have are:

- recommendations from people in the same industry as you - if a seo gives you a client testimonial. ring the client and get as much info as possible - check their “achievements” by using seo tools such as Majestic SEO (helps you understand if they are doing work which Google will like)

At the end of the day, the SEO industry is all cloak and daggers, there are more seo experts than any other industry but 99% couldn’t tell their arse from their elbow. The problem is the majority of people don’t understand seo and they fall for the usual “we get you to page 1 for $20” lines.

NEVER EVER BUY ON PRICE, if an SEO says I will get you to page 1 for $100 walk away, as they can’t guarantee they will, only work on hourly rates so they put as much effort in as you can afford.

Do your research is the top tip I give, always scrutinise providers and generally be sceptical of everyone.
