Christmas Colors

From time to time I hear a comment about how the main color scheme they see on the MD site (red and green) reminds them of Christmas. The strange thing to me is they say it like it’s a bad thing—I mean, who doesn’t want to feel like they’re going Christmas shopping for their new WordPress Theme?

I also get “color psychology experts” explaining to me how harmful red is for conversion rates, and then the inevitable suggestion of using blue or green instead. I wonder what the effect of blending in with 99% of other Internet brands will have on my conversion rates?

The best answer to the question of “how do I organize my blog?” is to simply create a ton of content and let it sort itself out (it will also give you the guidance you are missing by asking this question).

MailerLite in MD4.9.5

MailerLite in MD4.9.5

The summer is truly a unique time on Earth and I hope you too are making the most of this fleeting period. To transition to the next stage, I am happy to announce the all-new MailerLite integration is MD4.9.5—which you can go download right now.

The new direct MailerLite integration in Marketers Delight 4.9.5 allows you to connect your email forms data from MailerLite directly into your WordPress site. By taking advantage of MD’s email forms, popups, and other optin features you can finally embed lists from MailerLite without any code.

A special thanks to MD fan favorite MasterHealer for his persistence to get this feature released, and for many other contributions by simply speaking up.

MD4.9.5 is waiting for you in your dashboards—go update now!

Marketers Delight 4.9.5 New!

See what's new:
  • New: Integrate your MailerLite email form data into the MD Integrations panel to place code-free email optin forms throughout your site.
  • Fixes an issue that prevents integration panels from opening/closing after import.

New updates to the Bookshelf

I just released MD4.9.4.3 (based on this forum thread) that adds a couple of enhancements to the MD Bookshelf. To see the bookshelf page in action go check out my personal blog and read the forum thread I linked to for instructions on how to use the new bookshelf enhancements in MD4.9.4.3.

The Bookshelf is my second favorite feature in MD (the Stream is just too much fun!) and I have some great updates I plan to build sometime soon. I won’t reveal much now, but the ideas are burning a hole in my mind and may turn the Bookshelf into my favorite feature once released!

Twitter update

What a busy week (and summer) it’s been in the MD Labs. Been buried under client work but I am making an effort today to catch up on any messages I’ve missed in the forums in the past week. I am not typically so busy that I get burned out of replying at the forums, so I shot a quick video on Twitter to get back into the groove.

Watch it over here, and give me a follow if you haven’t already! oops, taken down for technical difficulties. Just another reason why text > audio!
