Essential WordPress Plugins

When building a business website it’s important to limit ourselves to only the essential WordPress plugins needed to complete the project and accomplish the goals.

While doing website audits I’m always surprised by the over usage of plugins. We often find multiple plugins, each performing the same functionality. Then, we usually find deactivated plugins and plenty of badly outdated plugins.

If you manage a small business website it’s very important to limit yourself to only use a limited number of essential plugins only. Unless your site is doing something special it can easily be built using 10 plugins or less.

Remember, it’s always important to research each plugin before installing it. Take a look at our essential WordPress plugin tips as we provide some advice and tips to help you along the way.
