As a business owner, your time is precious. You can’t waste time with anything because that could end up costing a lot of money. 99.99% of people don’t host their sites on a local server at home, but most small business owners like to, at the very least, try to build their own site. This can be challenging at times, especially if you don’t have the skills necessary to not only design a new site but also put it all together on a web page.
WordPress is the most used CMS in the world, and people always tend to give it a go. So we’d like to share with you six plugins that will make your life as a WordPress beginner a lot easier.

This can be especially useful when you have, for example, several services pages, that look all the same, and have a similar layout, and all you have to do is edit the content on those pages. This is one of those plugins that will save you a ton of time, especially if you’re building larger sites with various pages.

UpDraftPlus Backup and Restoration
Regardless of how big your site is, you should always keep weekly/monthly backups (depending on how often you update it), of it. Backups are very useful if you ever get hacked, face compatibility issues with new updates and so on. UpDraft is a free plugin which allows you to backup your entire site with a few clicks. You can even have it store automatically on your Dropbox account.
This plugin is perfect for migrations. It also works well for backups, but it’s especially useful if you’re moving your site to another hosting provider, or if you’re just moving it from a different domain… Duplicator is probably the easiest and most effective solution when it comes to cloning your website or e-store.
