Ever wondered how people manage multiple WordPress sites and still get things done at the end of the day? I know people who have over five WordPress blogs, one with even more than twenty! Imagine the pain of logging in and out of every site, just to update plugins, write posts or approve comments. That, my friend, is hell on Earth.
Keep reading, as we are going to show you how to manage and maintain one hundred or more WordPress websites without breaking a sweat.
In this post:
ManageWP is a service that provides access to several WordPress sites from one dashboard, eliminating the need to log in to each site to update plugins, themes, add new users, write posts, or anything else you normally do on a single WordPress installation.
Below is the screenshot of the central dashboard where you can add up to 10 websites for free.
Plugin and Theme Management
Look above and suppose you have ten websites to manage on a daily basis. Heaven on Earth, you get to maintain all of them with just one click! I have only added one website, and as you can see above there’s an “Update All” button that you can click to update every website you have added.
You can schedule your backups and have them saved directly to Dropbox, Amazon S3, or your very own server with just a few clicks.
Installing and Cloning
ManageWP also helps users to install new WordPress installations, or even clone ones, with just a “woosh” and done. So easy to create iterations of your favorite client designs!
Bulk posting? Yes, bulk posting! Posting content to several websites, be it for announcement or something else, will prove to be a daunting task without ManageWP, right? With the bulk posting feature you can select websites you want to post your great content onto.
Since you will be trusting several of your websites (with admin control, mind you) to ManageWP, security is a TOP priority.
ManageWP is well-integrated with Sucuri.net that helps fix and scan for malware and other harmful elements that may be inflicted on your website. ManageWP also prides itself with a state-of-the-art security system that will definitely give you peace of mind, knowing that your security is handled with great importance.
SEO Analysis and Keyword Ranking
There are a lot of great SEO plugins out there and Keyword tools, and it would be great if something similar is on ManageWP. Actually, there is, and you will trouble yourself no longer with paid SEO analysis tools and keyword tools. ManageWP has all of this.
This is a step-by-step video review, so if you are serious about ManageWP then I highly suggest finding time to watch it.
Here’s an Interview with Vladimir Prelovac, CEO and founder of ManageWP
Q: Could you share some of your tips/business principles for others out there willing to make a successful startup?
There are a couple of principles that I believe will make any startup’s journey easier:
First is that you need to have a cool product, one that you strongly believe in and you will want to use on your own. This also makes it so much easier to justify putting most, if not all, of your own time, money, and heart into it. You have to realize that there will be many hurdles along the way, as with all things in life, so you better have an idea of what you are doing and why you are doing it.
Second is to launch the beta as soon as possible. This allows you to start listening to your users and getting feedback. They will give great ideas on how to improve your product… for free!
Third is to not create a startup that relies on external funding to succeed. We are completely bootstrapped, which most likely forced us to create a significantly better product than we might have if we were basking in investment money. It motivates you to perform.
Fourth is the speed — making efforts to optimize your application and interface like crazy. Users have never been as impatient as they are today. Also, intuitiveness: the less the users needs to think, the better. You really need to watch other people use your product. You will be surprised by what you will discover.
Do the above things, and people will be drawn to your efforts and will help you to succeed.
