If you have ever tried to send email from WordPress then you have probably experienced email not being delivered or going to the spam folder. This is because most all web host which that email would be sent through have terrible sending reputation and deliverability. Instead, send email through your Gmail account or through a 3rd party SMTP provider. The plugin I recommend to do this is called WP Mail SMTP by WPForms.

But something crazy happened during this time. While some of my ideas were generating interest, I discovered a few months later my free plugin had over 10,000 downloads and I was receiving emails to add features.
WordPress Customer Service Lessons Learned
If the customer is downright rude or insulting then I either ignore or send a canned response. For example when I was first getting started someone tweeted to me that my product was overpriced and shit. I proceeded to engage and ended up in an emotionally heated conversation. My product is my baby and at that time I took the tweet very personally. This ended badly for everyone. In hindsite it’s best to ignore or have a canned response ready you can send. I have several canned responses I resort to.

How to FTP into WordPress
The wp-content folder is where all your files live including your themes, plugins, uploads. Plugin’s may also put files in this folder for use as it relates to your site. All the other files and folder outside the wp-content folder and wp-config.php file are WordPress core files and you should never change, delete or modify the files and folders. Below is a screenshot of the wp-contet folder. If you ever need to manually update or edit a theme or plugin this is where you’ll do it.
Top 4 lessons learned from selling a premium WordPress plugin
I love the Settigns API because it super stable and reliable. I made the huge mistake of using OptionTree as framework in Version 2 of my plugin.

Maintenance Mode for WordPress, Everything You Need to Know
Maintenance Mode is a term you use when you need to take your regular site offline to perform software of content updates. So for example, when WordPress needs to update itself, a plugin or a theme it has a built-in maintenance mode it uses to display a message to visitors that your site is down. Or say you have redesigned your site and you need a few hours to implement the new design. In this case you would use a maintenance mode plugin to put you site into maintenance mode so you can access the site to make your updates but your visitors would get a custom message about why it’s down and when it will be back up.
