We strive to become number one in the industry, that’s why we have been working hard in the last a few months to make the WP Rich Snippets plugin more awesome. Today, I am going to share with you a sneak peak of our 2015 plan and tell you about all major changes we are going to implement to our business model in the coming weeks.
A New Home for Our Site
Ok, so we’ve started AuthorhReview.com about three years ago, the website actually did pretty well in serving our plugins and delivering support. We had to make a couple of extensive updates and re-design for the site to make things better. However; after the release of WP Rich Snippets and the growth in number of add-ons it became a mediatory to get a whole new fresh start for our site.
What we do is more than helping our members to build reviews websites, it’s going more towards SEO (Search Engine Optimization). So, we feel that our message became outdated! It need to be enhanced and focused, it needs to include our feature goals.
To do so; we had to choose between one of two possible options. The first option was to re-construct our website and try to make things more clear. The second option is to get a whole new website, fresh membership management system, and take our support to a higher level.
We decided to go with the second option as it will involve using better tools on our website, which mostly will enhance user experience and the way things works.
We are also considering moving to a new domain name!
The WP Rich Snippets Plugin
The WPRS plugin (WP Rich Snippets) is the most advanced plugin in our package, it has great features and -more importantly- it’s functionality can be easily extended by add-ons. We have been moving slowly in our development path towards the WP Rich Snippets. So, it’s highly recommended to our new coming members to use it on their websites.
We are brining a new whole licensing system, and introducing automatic plugin updates, the most waited feature!
What About Our Other Plugins?
However, we will keep supporting the plugins till we make sure that all of our members have made the switch to WP Rich Snippets. We already created an automated tool to make the switch easy, but we will have to go though some deep testing first before releasing it to all of our members.
Licenses and Pricing
So, here I will get a couple of questions answered…
1- Is there going to be a price change?
Yes, we will probably make a slight change in prices, this won’t affect our already members. We will share more details about this latter on.
2- Are you going to sell add-ons separately?
No, at least not at the beginning, we just want to make things easier, so we will have a couple of licenses that includes access to all add-ons.
As we are moving everything, we will have to use a new affiliate program system, we are testing out the new AffiliateWP plugin, it looks great and dose the job perfectly.
So, if you are part of our affiliate program, you will need to switch to the new program when it’s ready.
We would love to thank all our members for being awesome, we really appreciate your business and great support.
