MD5.0 Weekend Update

This weekend I have made the most important progress on MD5.0 yet, all of which will make Marketers Delight a far more professional and highly efficient product for extending WordPress. Apart from the flashy features being delivered, much of the optimizations made have come from what I learned from building a custom WordPress site from the ground up for a client and solving the woes that prevented me from using MD on such a large project. By the time MD5.0 comes out I believe those doubts will be vanquished, and the power we will all have to create large custom websites that expand WordPress will be here. I cannot wait to finally bring you into the rich world of custom MD development!

New Dropin on Monday

Get excited for Monday because I am releasing to you a new Dropin that will immediately allow you to create new kinds of rich content pages you may only currently see a few top marketing blogs doing. I consider this Dropin as one of those things that is slightly ahead of the curve, but will make sense once you see it. See you Monday morning!

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!
