My Recommended WordPress Plugins

In this post, I review plugins that I genuinely use and can absolutely vouch for. WordPress continues to be popular and with regards to SEO, I’d argue that it continues to be the best solution for ranking sites. Said simply, and I tell all of my clients this, WordPress just works.

WordPress is awesome; in fact, I’ve spoken at a WordCamp event before and several meetup groups here in Hong Kong where I live.

I wouldn’t touch any other CMS; I’ve played around with Shopify but I never understood the whole liquid code thing, and Joomla and Drupal just look dated (don’t mean any disrespects) and I’ve even messed around with Plone (…never again).

I manage anywhere between 10 and 20 websites and any given time (some come, some go) and there are certain plugins that I always install when I either launch the site or am maintaining it.

This post lists them out.

The list includes 12 WordPress plugins that I use regularly.

BTW, I am not getting any money from any referrals here (affiliate codes, etc.)

Why I am telling you this?

Because it makes the post and reviews all the more honest 🙂


My Recommended WordPress Plugins

#1 Gravity Forms Plugin

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Usage: Contact forms, polls, payment forms (using Stripe), and a lot of other functions.

Summary: Gravity Forms is very reliable and has lots of excellent and impressive add-ons. Also, I think that the price reflects its’ use. The slight negative is that it does have a bit of a learning curve and the Stripe add-on is a bit tricky.

Gravity forms is definitely pretty awesome.

I’ve tried other popular solutions like Contact Form 7 and Mail Chimp but for flexibility, I think Gravity Forms kicks ass.

Here are the reasons I like Gravity Forms and would recommend it:

  • Easy to take payments using Gravity Forms
  • Lots of Gravity Form Add-Ons
  • Logical Forms are really helpful
  • Built-in spam-trap (which works great).
  • Great support
  • Nice Gutenberg implementation

#2 PHP Snippets

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Usage: A very nice way to keep your shortcode, CSS, etc., all nicely organized.

Summary: I can’t live without it.

This one might be a little rare for most WordPress users, but I can’t live without this awesome little plugin.

If you are even a moderate WordPress tinkerer you’ll be aware that at some point or another you will have to mess about with this file:

functions.php

I consider this file to be the brains of a WordPress install (I’m a pretty average PHP developer so don’t call me out on my descriptions); anyway – the neat and awesome thing about this plugin is that it neatly adds all functions.php commands in a tidy way.

Here’s an example of how I use PHP Snippets.

I use shortcodes for several basic tasks, for example, when displaying the current year. I find that this is useful because you can write something like:

"Check out the best ABC in [short_code]".

This guarantees that the paragraph that mentions the year is always the current year. Now, rather than typing out the PHP in the functions.php file you just create a snippet like this:

function year_shortcode() {
  $year = date('Y');
  return $year;
}
add_shortcode('year', 'year_shortcode');

This just keeps all your shortcodes organized and tidy.

What do I mean by tidy?

I mean if you mess about with your functions.php yourself and upload it using an SFTP file manager like Filezilla you’ll likely pull the site down. This plugin just tells you that your PHP commands are wrong and to take a look at them – assuming that there is something wrong with it.

In summary, the reason I think that this is an excellent WordPress Plugin is because it organzies the following snippets of code for:

  • PHP
  • CSS
  • JavaScript

In a neat and organized fashion.

In fact, you can even do away with creating a child theme.

#3 All-in-One WP Migration

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Usage: Backups, site reverting and of course, migration

Summary: Excellent, but pricey.

This is another brilliant plugin.

It makes it so damn easy to move a site from a local install to a server.

It basically has two major functions that I understand.

Those are:

  • The ability to create backups
  • The ability to restore those backups

Yes sure, there are millions of backup WordPress plugins but the one that I find “just works” is this one.

Now, to be honest I have had issues with large installations that I have had to move, in fact, anything over 2 Gig might be an issue but that’s probably because I have been doing it wrong. But for small sites, quick backups, etc this plugin is fantastic.

#4 WordPress Pods

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Usage: To create custom posts, archives and taxonomy

Summary: The support is incredible. The developers are friendly and kick-ass cool folk.

Yes, many of you have heard and use ACF, or Advanced Custom Fields and I agree – that is an excellent Custom Post creator and it’s easy to use.

However, for power and an unbelievably incredibly support team it is unmatched.

In fact, I created the web’s #1 Cybersecurity Conferences directory using nothing but that plugin.

Why do I love this plugin?

  • The support is incredible! Thanks Jim! They have a dedicated Slack Channel which is ALWAYS helpful – and what’s more incredible is that the plugin is free.
  • Once you understand how it works you can create very powerful WordPress applications
  • You can create way more than “just” Custom Posts – you can extend and create Custom Taxonomies and a ton more.

#5 FacetWP Plugin

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Usage: If you need to sort data, then this is an excellent choice

Summary: Can’t fault it. Excellent support. Why not 5/5? Because it is a bit on the pricey-side…I guess?

If you ever need to be able to sort data, for example, custom posts, custom taxonomy archives, etc., indeed any form of content, then this plugin is a no-brainer.

Hit their site and you’ll see some demo’s that I think completely accurately show the use of the search functionality.

I use it a lot and have had nothing but good experience with it.

The way it works is that you create a “facet” and a “template”. The “facet” is the data that you pull (in any order you like) and the “template” is how that data is presented.

So, in summary, I’d highly recommend FacetWP if you ever have any need to sort data.

#6 Loginizer

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Usage: A security plugin that excels at Brute-Force attacks and IP management of pesky IP-ranges that continue their attacks on your admin

Summary: A simple and neat way of securing the backend of your site from hackers.

Security and WordPress Hacking is a big-issue.

In fact, we cover quite a bit of web application hacking, in the site so we know only too well how insecure WordPress can be when managed by an inexperienced webmaster.

However, with that being said, WordPress can also be very secure when managed correctly and one plugin that I use that satisfies this need is the Loginizer plugin.

There’s not a great deal to say on it aside from the fact that it tells you the IP’s that have been trying to brute-force their way into your admin, and the security settings of your mission critical WordPress files.

The ability to lockout any IP that fails the password and username access after X attempts is a neat feature.

Yes, I know that there are hundreds of other similar plugins but I can vouch for this one because it works and has done a good job for me for the last several years.

#7 Novashare Social Media Sharing

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Usage: A lightweight social media icon sharing plugin

Summary: Not much to add aside from the fact that it works great.

I’ve used a ton of social media sharing icons and WordPress plugins but I landed on this one because of one critical feature: it is light.

I used to use AddThis for many years and it was great – but – I remember it loading a ton of overhead to my site.

I was on the prowl for a long time to find a suitable solution and along came Novashare which I have been happy with ever since.

I don’t use it on every site I manage but on the ones that I have been using it its worked well.

I like the fact that it gives you two choices (actually three) which are that you can place your social icons “inline”, “floating” or none, (which would actually like I said, make it three!).

#8 OneSignal Push Notifications

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

Usage: Instant messaging that gets a decent reply rate

Summary: An excellent addition to generating subscribers. Think of the YouTube subscribers bell and you’re basically there with this app and plugin.

I’ve used the OneSignal WordPress plugin for years.

It’s one of those things that you implement and forget about it.

OneSignal is pretty amazing when you think about because it’s free!

There is a paid version but I’ve never had a need for the paid version.

For those that don’t know OneSignal is the Chrome “popup” that prompts you to sign up for alerts.

The really great thing about browser alert messaging systems like OneSignal is that the subscriber gets notification regardless of what site they are on.

So, for example, if a subscriber signs up for your OneSignal messaging alert on Monday, and you push a message on Wednesday and they are on another website, they will get your message.

The tracking is excellent and what’s more you can even schedule your messaging.

When I worked as a growth marketer for a food delivery startup in Hong Kong and New York, we used to use OneSignal to push our menus to our (at the time) 4,000 subscribers, and the app worked flawlessly when messaging our customers via their mobile devices.

In summary, I’d rate this service (and WordPress plugin) highly and can’t recommend it enough.

#9 Schema Pro

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Usage: Schema organizer – and implements schema for SEO purposes.

Summary: Not much to say aside from that it works well!

Does schema help SEO? Absolutely, yes.

If you don’t know much about Schema, go check out this write-up.

In summary, the reason why Google (and all search engines) like schema is because it helps them understand, with clarity, what data it is that you are showing to your audience.

An example if your address on your site. That is a prime place to add schema because it will likely help with your local ranking (if that’s something that you want to achieve).

Schema works for all types of content: reviews, events, content, authorship and a ton more options.

If you are not using schema in 2021 then I recommend that you use it.

#10 Site Reviews

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Usage: If you need site reviews (or reviews of any kind) then this plugin would be worth taking a look at.

Summary: Coded superbly.

The Site Reviews plugin is not one that I use regularly but if you need any form of reviews on your site then this one will do it very well.

There is very little to fault on this plugin because the developer(s) are totally on it. They write excellent code and if I am not mistaken they also use blockchain technology to verify the authenticity of the reviews that you publish on your site.

The reviews plugin is highly customizable and again, highly recommended!

#11 WP All Export and WP All Import

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Usage: If you need to import or export data then these are the plugins (they are two) that you will ever need

Summary: Excellent – and – not much else to say! Try them out if you need to do what they say they do.

These two plugins are the best Import and Export plugins that you can ever use.

The reason why they are so awesome is for the following reasons:

  • You can select precisely what data you want to export
  • You can import data into your custom post types (or taxonomies) using the WordPress Pods plugin mentioned above
  • You can also create a template for export, so if you need to regularly export data (in a .csv format) then no worries, just do it once, name it, and that template will be saved.

#12 SEO Framework

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Usage: For SEO. This plugin is a light-weight solution when compared to Yoast.

Summary: Only reason I gave it 3/5 is because I don’t rely on it too much because I have mixed opinions about SEO plugins when it comes to ranking content.

The SEO Framework is my SEO WordPress plugin of choice.

To be honest I’m not a big fan of SEO Plugins because I feel that a lot of the features are a bit unecessary.

Does an SEO plugin for your site really help? Sure.

Does it help a huge amount? Probably not.

Anyways, when a client asks for an SEO plugin I revert to the SEO framework. I’ve heard some good things about SEO Rank Math but I never got my head around it.

What about Yoast? No. Not interested. I had a bad experience and the amount of advertising they used to throw all over the backend was highly irritating, plus they had that famous screw up back in 2018 that pissed off a lot of people.

Wrap Up

The plugins that I’ve mentioned above are ones that I have used many times.

Everything written above is my own hard-earned experience and goodness knows how much money I’ve wasted spent on plugins over the years only to decide on the above ones listed in this resource.

Let me know in the comments below if you agree with my roundup and please suggest any others!

Digital Marketing Analytics Tools

Understanding your data is a massive part of the fight to rank to the top for your keywords.

In this resource, we take a look at popular data analytics tools that will make you a better Internet Marketer! Most of these tools are free whilst several have premium or paid solutions.

As business management and marketing legend Peter Drucker said:

“What gets measured gets managed”

The Practice of Management, 1954

I’ve listed all the SEO Data Analytics tools that I have used since 2008. All of these tools are matured products that do an excellent job and curating and storing data regarding every aspect of your website.

Matomo

Rating: 4 out of 5.
  • Free (Self-Hosted)
  • Paid (SaaS)

I’m relatively new to Matomo and so far I have to report that it’s absolutely amazing. The self-hosted version is FREE and – here’s the thing – Google Analytics can sometimes sample your data so you don’t always have a complete picture. Matomo gives you total exposure to what’s going on.

There’s a paid version to Matomo as well, but I’ve used the Matomo self-hosted version, which I installed on a shared server (using cPanel) and I’ve had zero problems.

One of the things I really like about Matomo is that I 100% own the data and I find it really easy to set targets and goals compared to Google Analytics.

Furthermore, if you have SEO Clients that you work with then I’d 100% recommend installing them a free Matomo analytics installation on a sub-domain (of their site), add their logo, give them a login, and I guarantee that they’ll be impressed with your services.

Google Analytics (GA4)

Rating: 3 out of 5.
  • Free (Google Analytics)
  • Paid (Google Analytics 360)

Sure, Google Analytics is obviously the heavy-hitter in the room but that doesn’t mean it’s the best. I’ve used Google Analytics for years (GA) and overall it works great. The only “thing” I don’t like about GA is that I just find it tricky to set up goals and targets and never really worked out how to merge it with Google Tag Manager.

A huge amount of websites use Google Analytics, it’s a no-brainer to set up an account, create a tracking code, and plonk it on your site.

You’ll get results pretty much instantly and sure, you can make a ton of excellent decisions based upon the data that you’ll be shown.

Google Search Console

Rating: 4 out of 5.
  • Free

To be honest I’m not sure why Google Analytics and Google Search Console are not merged into one. If you use one tool for your data analytics then I’d suggest Google Search Console (GSC).

GSC focuses more on the quality of links, keywords, and the positioning of your keywords.

One of the best SEO Hacks you can do is to look at the keywords you’re ranking for and start to place more keywords on the page that’s being ranked.

Statcounter

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.
  • Free
  • Paid (Premium)

An old-school analytics tool that has been around for donkey-years. It works great and I suspect it’s been improved recently. If you need an “easy to manage” and a nice snapshot of what’s happening with visitors to your site, then this is a great tool to deploy.

The tool works great to analyse page views and the path the visitor takes throughout your site.

Combined with other analytics tools this might work really well.

As ever, it really depends on your purpose but if you have two analytic tools showing the same data then you can consider that to be the “real traffic” statistic.

Click Meter

Rating: 3 out of 5.
  • Paid (Medium)
  • Paid (Large)
  • Paid (Extra-Large)

I’ve been using this for clients’ sites for the last few years and it works very well, accurately analyzes traffic that comes to your site, and keep the data highly organized.

A nice feature of this tool is its’ ability to label junk traffic and “bot traffic” to your site.

Another two features I like are their customer support (very fast) and also the way in which you can organize the data by campaign or by a link which you can track.

One of the main differences between Click Meter, in fact really the “only”

Bit.ly

Rating: 3 out of 5.
  • Free
  • Paid (Basic)
  • Paid (Premium)
  • Paid (Customized)

I’ve also been using bit.ly for years and before that, I used to use Google’s version which I believe doesn’t exist anymore.

Bit.ly is a bit of an outlier compared to Matomo, Google Analytics, and the other Statcounter’s because it has a different purpose, but the reason I’ve included it is because you can analyze who has clicked a certain link.

An example of when I use a bit.ly link (which I always customize) is on my Gmail Suite email signature. It’s interesting to see how many clicks your signature gets and this is a clean and efficient way to tell.

Mapp

I’ve only just started using this tool so I’ll report back here when done.

FAQ

Which Is “The Best Analytic Tool For 2021“

The answer is that it 100% depends on the purpose. If you’re depending on measuring the success of landing pages or CTA’s then I’d go with Matomo because it’s a breeze to set up and monitor and you can pin the results on your dashboard.

If you need just an overview of what’s happening with traffic to your site then I’d absolutely suggest Google Analytics.

Do I Have To Pay For Analytic Tools?

Honestly, in many ways it is unnecessary, but if you really need to get under the hood of what’s happening within your site then sure, you’ll always get more features from paid solitons which will give you more to base decisions on.

Email Marketing Tools

It’s amazing when you think about it.

The “email” has been around since the early ARPANET, with standards for email messages published as early as 1973 (RFC 561). In fact, an email message sent in the early 1970s looks pretty much identical to a basic email sent today.

Email is, in Internet terms, an ancient form of communication that is still – absolutely – popular and is regarded as the “glue” that binds users to access applications and services. It’s a technology that just won’t go away or be replaced. We all have (in most cases) multiple email addresses and it is more likely that we will open email messages over other forms of communication.

WHAT DO WE MEAN BY “EMAIL MARKETING”

I define “Email Marketing” as a form of digital marketing that uses email messages for LeadGen, Sales Nurturing, or even Cold Emailing. There are really two skills required with regards to Email Marketing, they are the science of being able to inbox and the art of writing effective sales copy that elicits curiosity.

This resource lists out some tools that I’d encourage you to use with regard to your email outreach. Some of the tools I’ve used whilst others I’ve heard good things about.

WHAT’S THE ROI OF EMAIL MARKETING IN 2020?

Here’s the basic formula for calculating Email Marketing ROI:

Gained – Spent / spent = ROI (expressed as a percentage).

As a digital marketer, every email marketing campaign must produce a profitable return – that’s the purpose after all. Please note, however, that a “campaign” should not always for the sale, rather, we’d encourage you to adopt a jab, jab, jab, right hook approach.

Internet Marketers that describe their email marketing programs as successful report generating an average email marketing ROI of 42:1 which is pretty encouraging if you think about the cost.

This resource is all about the tools, however. During the course of the year, we will add to this and share some tips and tricks that we have learned along the way.

EMAILING AND SCHEDULING MEETINGS

One of my pet peeves is the back and forth I have with clients when trying to book meetings, get feedback, and generally the amount of time that is “lost” chasing up business.

To maximize my time I’ve used tools like Calendly, but my new favorite tool and one that I highly recommend is called MeetFox. The neat thing about MeetFox is that you monetize your time with online meetings.

Go check MeetFox if you want to further maximize your time online and feel that your marketing efforts are not being correctly monetized.

My Recommended SEO & Growth Hacker Tools For 2021

About This List

I’m a full-time SEO; that’s how I make my living.

I work for a large eCom company in Hong Kong and I’m immersed in the world of SEO; it’s literally what I do, pretty much, all the time.

I’m not an affiliate to any of the SEO tools listed below so you can treat my reviews as honest and from the heart.

All the tools that I list and discuss on this resource are ones that I genuinely use on a daily basis.

This resource is a “work in progress” and it will populate dozens of Growth Hacking “Internet Marketing” tools that I’ve used over the years.

If you prefer the full-on cyber hacking stuff then hit my resource here.

The categories of tools will include analytics, affiliate marketing, marketing automation, hosting, content marketing, email marketing, landing pages, lead generation, SEO tools, social media tools, WordPress themes, and plugins.

The reason this resource has also been launched in tandem with our hacker tools project is that I have a bunch of experience and knowledge in being able to use these tools to great effect and I thought to share the love with that expertise.

AHrefs

Yes, there are others out there, and mostly it comes down to personal preference, but I started with AHrefs and I can’t turn back.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ Constantly updated;
✓ Power-house of data;
✓ Nice stream of tutorials that make the tool easy to use

When it comes to SEO Tools – and all the services that you need from a tool, there are really two major players in town: SEMRush or AHrefs.

To me (and of course, this is just my opinion), the difference between the two is a bit like Coca Cola or Pepsi. They really do the same thing.

I’d say that for the most part, the “cool kids” are using SEMRush whilst the slightly more nerdy SEO’s are using AHRefs, but again, as stated, that’s just my feeling!

AHrefs touts itself as being an “All-in-One” SEO Toolset. The main features include the ability to:

  • Helping to optimize your (and clients’) websites;
  • Help to understand and analyze the competition;
  • Study what your customers and personas are searching for;
  • Rank Tracker: self-explanatory but this is fantastic to gauge your positioning for seed keywords

In summary, it’s a great tool and I use it every day for a wide variety of reasons.


Quillbot

There are a gazillion different content writers (text spinners) for the most obvious of all reasons: as an SEO we need content.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ Works the best from my testing!
✓ Very easy to use;
✓ Wide variety of settings

Trust me on this: I’ve tested them all.

By far, the easiest text-spinner to use for SEO is Quillbot.

There are dozens of new GTP-3 text spinners (“copy-spinners”) coming on the market but I still feel that Quillbot is the best for getting fast-and-readable copy spun out fast.

Is It Perfect?

No of course not and it probably never will be, but for getting copy spun with your keywords and getting content published fast it is an absolute winner.

I have a very particular way of using Quillbot whereby I use it as part of my content “process” that includes keyword research, content discovery (i.e. basically stealing the copy), then spinning it using Quillbot and passing that through SEO POP and a human to fine-tune the copy, make sure the keywords are dominant and of course that the content is unique. Rinse and repeat.

What’s The Ideal Process?

  1. Find content from multiple places;
  2. Mash that content together in a text doc;
  3. Spin it using Quillbot;
  4. Get a human to proofread it using POP-SEO.

And – publish!

By far my most recommended SEO-Text spinner of 2021.


Browser Automation Studio (BAS)

If you are looking for automation, then this is it.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ A really powerful tool for automation;
✓ Decent community and a lot of folks on Legiit, Fiverr and UpWork can help you out if you get stuck
✓ It’s FREE!

This really is an incredible tool.

If you spend anytime doing any form of SEO, Growth Marketing or Growth Hacking then this tool is for you.

Everything should be automated if possible.

I believe very much in the x10 Strategy and it is tools like BAS (and ZennoPoster and uBot) that make it possible.

If you are spending anytime repeating mundane tasks then you need to fire-up BAS, set up a script, and let it run its’ magic. For Level-1 Growth Hacker Level 1 I’d always suggest learning how to use it then outsource the process (“blueprint if you will”) to a Virtual Assistant, and reap the benefits!

It’s a great tool and one that I use on a daily-basis.

I’d always advise having it planted on a VPS since I believe that it only runs on Windows. It’s relatively energy-heavy so go ahead and just spin it up on a VPS and let it do its’ magic for you and your business.


ZennoPoster

If you are looking for automation, then this is the original Blackhat SEO marketers dream tool.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ The “Mac Daddy” of all automation tools;
✓ Virtually undetectable when set up correctly

Automate any task with ZennoPoster.

“Zenno” as it is also widely referred to, is a “go-to” tool for anything that you have to automate on the web.

The tool is part of a package from a Russian company called ZennoLab.

What’s the difference between ZennoPoster vs BAS?

The answer is, not a great deal, but I’d say that BAS is slightly easier to work with and it is free. For anything “simple” perhaps you’d be best off going to BAS and for anything a bit more complicated I’d deploy ZennoPoster.


Scrapebox

The ultimate classic Blackhat SEO Tool. But, in actual fact, there’s little real “Blackhat” about it. I use it for my day job all day long and I use it for purely legit reasons.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ Constantly updated to circumvent Google blocks;
✓ Decent support;
✓ 100% bonafide, “Battle-Tested” SEO Hacking Tool

If you’ve done any form of SEO for a few years you’ll probably have stumbled across Scrapebox.

Scrapebox is one of the oldest and most tried, trusted and loved SEO tools out there.

It works on Mac and well as Windows but I’d always advise using the Windows install on a VPS since that’s always worked best for me. (I also use it on my mac but I often find that it lags a little).

Scrapebox is rammed full of clever growth-hacking SEO tactics that you can deploy.

There’s a learning curve but what I’ve realized is that good tools always have a learning-curve, that’s what probably made them so great in the first-place.

For the most part you will need proxies; in fact, I’d also suggest you use proxies for ZennoPoster, Phantombuster and BAS (all referred to in my guide).


Phantombuster

This is another Growth Hacking Automation tool that kicks-ass.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ A power-house of a Social-Media Automation Tool;
✓ Solid support, and well thought-out “Phantoms”

I use this tool: Phantombuster, every day.

This tool has a bunch of “Phantoms” which are pre-built code-bases that run a bunch of code to automate processes that you’re interested in automating.

The tool has the following social media channels ready to run automation on; they include:

  • LinkedIn
  • Pinterest
  • Instagram
  • Facebook
  • TikTok
  • ….and dozens of other apps and processes.

You will need proxies for the tool to be effective; and you’ll want to proceed with caution when it comes to using your own personal social media accounts.

I’d always advise that you use dummy-fake accounts on social media channels to run the “Phantoms” that for the most part will extract data and automate your outreach and other activities like that.


Vidnami

This is the only video-tool I have been using, and it’s freakin’ awesome.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ Very easy to use;
✓ Affordable and effective

If you need to churn out videos for your website and/or YouTube then Vidnami is your “go-to” to create effective copy.

You focus on the copy and Vidnami will focus on the video-creation.

It’s a no-brainer and you can scale a bunch of content easily and get it indexed and ranked.

Personally I use Vidnami to get videos thumbnails on my SERP results.

If you are seeking a growth marketing video tool then this might well be it.


Cameo

I don’t really like working with influencers but I understand their importance. This tool does away with the BS and arrogance and just delivers affordable results

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

✓ Way more cost-effective than going through an agent;
✓ A huge database of folks that can help to promote your work

For those that don’t know, Cameo is a cost-effective way to get “celebrity” endorsements for your product or sevice.

I put the noun “celebrity” in quotation marks because you probably won’t recognize about 90% of the folks there, but there are a few gems that do stick out.

For example, Ice-T and Snoop Dogg are both in the inventory and can be hired to say a 100-200 word snippet for your business.

If you find the right person for the right niche you can do really well with this!
