WP Notepad Review: Add user interactivity to your membership site

WP Notepad is a WordPress plugin that empowers you to let your members add their own private notes. And that is only the beginning. Watch the video to see all the ways that WP Notepad can help you to keep your membership site active and growing with plenty of member to member interaction.

WP Notepad also enables you to create plug-and-play forms that make it easier for your members to submit forms. In a product creation course by the plugin author, Robert Plank created a template that you can submit to oDesk to get your dictated articles transcribed from audio files. He used WP Notepad to query the number of articles in the article pack, the number of minutes of audio to be transscribed and the date that the transcription is to be finished by the transcriptionist.

The plugin then takes the information and plugs it into a template. With a click on the “copy to clipboard”link, you can then take the entire PERSONALIZED template and paste it into the job submission form inside of oDesk. The amount of time and effort saved is enormous.

And WP Notepad remembers the last entries for each variable so that the next time you need to submit the same form, you only have to enter values that have changed.

Very slick!

Your members will appreciate the time you save them and will gladly return to your membership site to take advantage of the time savers you create for them there.

And the uses of WP Notepad are only limited by you and your members’ imaginations.

You can create checklists for your training, mentoring and coaching courses.

Of course you can pick and choose where WP Notepad appears on your site. Do you want it to appear on all posts and pages, only posts but not pages, or only for certain categories? You can even exclude itfrom individual posts or pages.

Pick up your copy today and put more interaction and style in your membership site.


How to cancel your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar free trial

Cancelling your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar free trial account is easy and quick to do as GoToMeeting and GoToWebinar are to use. Just watch the video below to see how it’s done.

Now that you’ve seen how easy and hassle-free it is to cancel your GoToMeeting or GoToWebinar account, I hope that you will sign up for the free 30 day trial and give these incredible productivity tools a test drive.

If you aren’t yet making screen sharing presentations, you will be, so you might as well jump in now.

GoToMeeting enables you to share your screen to up to 15 other attendees while talking to them either on the phone or through the computer’s speakers and microphone. A chat feature is included as well so that people can ask clarifying questions in the background without interrupting the flow of the meeting.

I have been using GoToMeeting to give technical training and assistance for a couple years,  but more recently I have started use it as a marketing tool.

So I highly recommend that you sign up for a trial today, log in right away and get familiar with the interface. I find it quite intuitive, but as with any powerful and feature rich tool, there is always a learning curve. The quicker you become comfortable with GoToMeeting, the sooner you can spend more time on delivering your content in a meaningful and persuasive way.
