We recently worked on WPism – an upcoming WordPress publisher covering several WordPress topics. Few things we worked on WPism and the tools we used are highlighted below.
WPism Website and Blog
WordPress and Genesis
WPism is powered by WordPress (of course!) at its core. We used Genesis as a framework and one of the premium StuidoPress Themes for its overall outlook.
We choose WP Engine for hosting purposes of the website. WP Engine has the best managed WordPress hosting services and we cannot recommend enough.
WPism Social Media Presence
Social Media presence was the top priority for WPism. We tried to maintain consistent branding across the channels and focused on few popular and relevant platforms initially.
WPism Social Tools
We also configured few other social tools to help with the long term social media strategy.
Buffer was the ultimate choice for scheduling posts and tracking analytics. Buffer’s Awesome plan was a good starting point with the ability to add in multiple social channels and stacking up scheduled posts.

Further we also configured Bitly for overall links management. We configured a domain shortener WPi.sm (pretty cool, right?) and integrated with Buffer and WordPress to automate the link shortening for WPism.
we used OptinMonster for lead generation and to help with the email marketing.
Additionally we used Aweber for email marketing solutions. We configured OptinMonster to work to Aweber and this makes a complete package for WordPress powered website.
