Last week my partner and I were in Naramata, BC. It is wine country and the vines are just starting to grow, all the orchards are in bloom and the lake was still freezing cold. But it was a glorious few days away from home, kids and responsibilities.
While we were there we ran into the Farmers Market in Penticton. It was the highlight of my weekend. There were over 250 small businesses displaying their wares at the market starting at 8:30am!
Nothing is more exciting than seeing small businesses thrive! Every time I need a gift, produce or meat I try to use small businesses – these (WE) are the backbone of our economy! And in honor of Small Business Week (beginning yesterday- ooops), I have asked some of my favorite online businesses for special deals just for you!
If you’re looking for forms that can do user generated content, link up to your shop or marketing software, calculate purchases and do complicated postings based on information – this is the best of the best. I had the privilege of working with Formidable Forms to completely transform a WordPress site into an intranet supporting loan calculations and contracts for offices all over the United States. FF is not only amazing in its calculations, but it is fast, easy to use and developer friendly!
If you want to try this out – visit Formidable Forms and use coupon WPBLOVESFORMIDABLE for 20% off. But be sure to use it before the end of the week!
In case you haven’t heard yet, social pug is taking the social-sharing world by storm. They have provided a migration plugin for those who have a lot of information and images stored within the Social Warfare plugin and wish to switch. They provide the same functions – custom buttons, easy placement, hidden pinterest images and descriptions, the correct SEO mark-up and lots more.
Their free version is awesome, but if you want floating buttons, more Pinterest options, Click to Tweet, migration options and more customization options for the buttons – you’ll need the premium version. Until the end of this week – you can get the Social Pug premium version for 20% off – simply click here and copy this code into the checkout form: wp_barista_social_pug_20.
Have you wanted to add that delayed ‘slide-in’ type of pop-up? In my opinion it is one of the less offensive ones. The premium version of Optin Hound allows you to edit the pop-up styles, the location and trigger (for when it pops up); AND will even connect all subscribers to your choice of popular newsletter software. ie: Mailchimp, ConvertKit, etc.
Want to give that a try? Click over to Optin Hound and copy this code to your checkout for 20% off: wp_barista_optin_hound_20. Remember it is only good for Small Business Week! Let’s support you and these small businesses at the same time. 🙂
Check back tomorrow – more discounts are coming!!
