How to Upload and Create a Document Gallery in WordPress

Want to create a good-looking document gallery in WordPress?

A content-rich WordPress website is not only written in words but also showcases plenty of media, documents, and graphics.

When you want to share those contents, you can’t upload them to the WordPress media library. Or when you managed to do it, it looks kind of austere and unappealing to readers. They might think that is some issue or harmful file and hesitate to click on it.

This article will help you successfully upload those necessary file types. And display them nicely on any WordPress page or post gallery.

Upload Document File Types to WordPress

What’s allowed to be uploaded and what’s not?

WordPress by default allows many document file types:

  • .pdf (Portable Document Format)
  • .doc, .docx (Microsoft Word Document)
  • .ppt, .pptx, .pps, .ppsx (Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation)
  • .odt (OpenDocument Text Document)
  • .xls, .xlsx (Microsoft Excel Document)
  • .psd (Adobe Photoshop Document)

Those are the most widely used file types. But if you need to upload a document file type that is not supported, you can easily get the know-how below.

WordPress 5.8 adds WebP support

Also, it’s worth mentioning that WordPress 5.8 adds new fields to Site Health to help determine if a site is capable of processing WebP format image files. And you can also manage these WebP files efficiently with the FileBird plugin.

In my personal experience, I often use these ebook formats including .prc, .epub, .mobi, .azw, .djvu, etc. Despite not being common, those file types have been existing for a very long time and actually got many advantages in terms of sharing among platforms and reading user experience on different devices.

Or when designers want to upload their graphic files such as .svg, .cad, .dwg, motion graphic files, etc. And Apple documents such as .numbers, .pages, and so on?

Upload unpermitted document file types

To allow those file types to be uploaded, you got to install some WordPress pre-built code to implement it, and here I choose File Upload Types. This is a fast and direct solution.

A plugin to allow uploading more file types

Right after activation, you’ll see a list of file formats that are well categorized in different functionality and media types.

A quick tip: You can use Ctrl + F (or Cmd + F) to search for the file type/format you want.

So when I want to get webp file types, I can easily locate them and tick the corresponding checkbox. Then all I have to do is to click Save changes and carry on uploading those files. Yayks!

Categorized File Type list in Upload Plugin

Another good thing about this plugin is it allows you to add custom file types. It’s just as easy as shown in the screenshot above. Just fill those fields including the file description, MIME type, its extension, and then you’re good to go.

We won’t have to refresh or leave the page in order to complete those tasks. But of course, make sure you click Save Settings after making changes.

When you finish uploading all the necessary file types, we move on to the next step of adding those files in a document gallery.

Create a Document List in WordPress

If you manually add a document to a WordPress page or post, all it shows is the file name which is also linked to that file’s URL or download link.

A document file without its thumbnail makes it less appealing and fewer people will click it.

Here’s a document with its link.

Link to Document in WordPress post

In Gutenberg, you can make it look a bit better by using the File block. This is how it looks when I use File blocks to add documents one by one.

Document list in Gutenberg

That’s all you can do within WordPress default.

Fortunately, there’s a plugin to help you enhance the document gallery with thumbnails for each file type and also provides multiple options to display them in a good-looking showcase.

Now think about which page/post editor you’re currently using because Gutenberg editor takes some different aspects from the classic editor. Following are the guidelines for these 2 different WordPress page/post editors.

Create a Document Gallery in Classic Editor

Required plugins: Document Gallery

In order to add a well-aligned gallery of documents in WordPress classic editor, all you need is the plugin Document Gallery by Dan Rossiter. Just download and install it for free from the WordPress repo.

1. Navigate in Document Gallery plugin

Upon activation, you’ll see a new menu Document Gallery created under Settings menu. That is where you head over to when you need to adjust advanced settings.

In the scope of this tutorial, you don’t need to dive into it too much as this plugin actually allows convenient access right from the WordPress page/post editor.

2. Add Media to your document library

When editing any page or post, click Add Media > Create Document Gallery > select all necessary document files > Create a New Document Gallery.

3. Set up links, layouts, and thumbnails

Next, you’ll be seeing the setup part for this gallery.

Edit document gallery settings

You would want to care about these settings:

  • Link To: choose Media File if you want the users one-click to download, or Attachment Page if you want to direct users to the file page.
  • Columns: how many columns you want your gallery to display in
  • Use auto-generated document thumbnails

Then you click Update to save all the changes. This is how your 3-column document gallery looks on the front-end.

Document gallery display in WordPress post

Create a Document Gallery in Gutenberg Editor

Like it or not, Gutenberg is enforced and will likely replace the Classic editor in a few years. The fact that many clients really enjoy using Gutenberg blocks makes sense for us to keep it updated with the right Gutenberg-friendly plugins.

Below is the tutorial on how to use Document gallery for Gutenberg users.

Required plugins: Document Gallery & FileBird

For those who are not familiar with FileBird, it is a WordPress media organizer that comes with a great Gutenberg image gallery block. Now FileBird v4.3.1 and its later releases also support document gallery block via dg shortcode (Document Gallery plugin supported shortcode).

1. Organize document files in a folder

After activating those two plugins, navigate to your Media library and upload your document files to a folder. If your files were already uploaded, just bulk select and drag n’ drop them to the destination folder.

Here I’ve renamed the folder as Document and place it on the top of the folder tree for easy view.

Document Folder ID in list mode

2. Find the folder ID

In media library’s List mode, select that Document folder and look into its URL. You’ll see fbv=folderid. Refer to the screenshot above, fbv=308 meaning the folder ID is 308.

3. Paste the document display shortcode to your page/post

[dg id=-1 fbv=308]

To display this document folder in a page or post using Gutenberg editor, you add this shortcode along with the folder ID:

Create a document gallery with shortcode in Gutenberg

This shortcode pulls the document gallery settings and applies them to this FileBird folder to help those contained documents display on the Gutenberg front-end.

Just as simple as that, when published, your new WordPress document gallery looks like this.

WordPress-Document-gallery-on-the-front-end

There are many Gutenberg users who love Document gallery plugin yet the plugin seems to be abandoned and they cannot find a way to utilize it. They ask us to improve FileBird to support DG. And this dg shortcode is our little Christmas gift for them. 🎉

Final Thoughts

This article aims to demonstrate all the steps you have to take to upload unallowed file types and create a nice document gallery in WordPress with auto-generated thumbnails.

Should you have a better solution, don’t hesitate to leave your opinion in the comment box or chatbox below.

We hope you can get it done in no time. Can’t wait to see your document gallery published!

4 Ways to Download WordPress Media Library

There are many scenarios in which downloading all WordPress media files become required.

It could be when you create a brand new website and you want to keep those valuable files in place. Or you simply want to create a backup for media files during WordPress migration. You can also regularly export a full media library archive in case you’re about to install a new plugin or update WordPress core and you don’t want strange conflicts.

What to look for when downloading WordPress media?

Download WordPress media library helps keep your media files safe when testing new updates or staging new developments.

While it is possible to go through each image, download it one by one, and then sort them out, that manual work is not enjoyable at all. It is even very time-consuming when you have thousands of media files. You would want something fast, simple, and neat.

This article is going to show you 4 straightforward ways to download the entire library of your WordPress media files.

With a few clicks and a full copy of your WordPress media library will be ready in your computer or cloud storage services with minimum effort.

Now let’s hop on the first tactic.

1. FileBird media folders

FileBird is a media library organizer plugin that has frequent new features from time to time. And Download media folder is one of them!

FileBird media folders for WordPress

This plugin is super useful for media-heavy websites like cuisine blogs, fashion showcases, and photographers/designers portfolios.

FileBird comes with a user-friendly interface that allows you to drag and drop to organize all media files. After you categorize them the way you want, you can easily use the right-click to access its smart context menu.

From the menu dropdown, click Download to download the entire selected folder.

Export or download a WP media folder easily

This action will save your media folder in a ZIP file, keeping the same folder structure of the main folders and nested folders. With this method, you can scientifically keep the media data backup in the organized order — thus very easy to check back and sort them out.

Pros:

The exported ZIP file contains only the original files. By excluding the WordPress auto-generated image sizes, you will have neat and clear media folders to save in hard disk or cloud services.

Cons:

This is a paid option, meaning you will have to pay for the FileBird Premium version to get this feature enabled.

Learn more about Compare FileBird Free and Pro.

Now let’s head over to the free download/export options.

2. Filester File Manager Pro plugin

Filester is actually a handy yet versatile file manager for all of your WordPress server files. The free version already offers all the professional features you need to manage WP configuration.

In this section, I’m going to show you only a tiny built-in feature to help you see how it works in exporting WordPress media library.

To start off, you need to go to your WordPress admin dashboard and install Filester – File Manager Pro.

This can be done easily by running a search of FilesterActivate the plugin.

Filester file manager pro for WordPress

 

After activated, Filester plugin creates a new menu item File Manager on the left sidebar. And you can click on it to view all the files that compose your current WordPress website.

Filester file manager pro user interface

This user-friendly interface allows you to browse files and folders at ease like on your computer. I would expect it’ll be extremely simple for you to find the folder for all WordPress media files. By clicking on the folder wp-content > uploads, you’ll locate all your media files arranged in folders by year and month.

By now you can just right-click the folder you want to download and choose Download to get them automatically downloaded to your computer in a ZIP file.

download wordpress media library using filester

Quick note:

In case you have many other addons and page builders installed in your WordPress, you’ll see their own folders nested under wp-content/uploads/, too.

For instance: elementor folder & css folder in the screenshot below.

filester file manager folders

You can just ignore them and only choose the folder you want to keep an extra copy.

Pros:

This download process right from WordPress file manager is conducted very fast and smoothly.

It maps the whole year- and month-based folder structure so that you can import to the new site correctly.

Cons:

If you haven’t set up user role permissions in File Manager, other users might interfere in your settings.

That said, for those who are more of a techie, refer to the second method below.

3. Use FTP Client

Your next option is to use the FTP (file transfer protocol), which requires you to download an FTP client and install it to your computer. FTP is basically a method of transferring files between a client (your computer) and a server (your WordPress website).

FTP is, of course, an excellent solution for WordPress management.

Caution: However, if you’re just taking the first steps in creating a blog on WordPress, it’ll be quite frustrating with this file transfer software’s user interface. When you accidentally move or make changes to a file or folder, it can easily break your website.

Now that when you feel confident to run FTP client, connect to Site Manager and navigate to your WordPress contents via the path /public-html/wp-content/uploads/.

Every time you upload images and videos to WordPress media library, they will be stored in year- and month-based folders. This system follows a chronological order which means the files uploaded in the year 2020 will be stored in the folder 2020, and so on and so forth for the subfolder of months.

You can do almost the same as the operations of Filester, let’s find the folder you want to keep and right-click to download them.

download-wordpress-media-library-using-ftp

Pros:

You don’t have to install a new plugin just for the export.

Cons:

Can be hard for WordPress starters.

4. Use Export Media Library Plugin

If you have an excellent collection to be backed up on your system or simply because you need the media files for immediate distribution, using a dedicated plugin for this task is very much recommended. With this WordPress media library export plugin, you can utilize it as a one-off and then uninstall it once all media files are safely stored.

This is an easier way to download the entire media library for non-techies, like me. Just download the free Export Media Library plugin and you’ll be able to download a zip file of your entire library!

Upon activation, you can find the Export settings right under Media menu. Simply choose the folder structure (a single folder for all files OR nested folders) and compression mode for all media.

export media library

Pros:

Simple and easy to use.

Cons:

You have to install a new plugin with the sole purpose of downloading the WP media library.

Note that, depending upon your media library capacity, downloading media uploads could take too long and lead to a timeout. You may need to discuss how to best utilize this plugin with your hosting provider.

Conclusion on downloading WordPress media library

Once you have correctly downloaded your WordPress media library, you will have a full backup of WP documents and media files. Bear in mind that WordPress generates many different sizes of one image, so the media library you get has more files than original files.

Therefore, using FileBird folder download (premium feature) comes in handy when you need to sort out all pictures and videos for your next projects later on.

If you would love to organize your WordPress media files better with folders, just install FileBird for free.

How to customize WooCommerce Emails

WordPress is a great e-commerce platform and WooCommerce is the best WordPress e-commerce plugin so far. Nearly 30% of online stores all over the world are now using WooCommerce. However, the WooCommerce transactional emails which store owners use to communicate with their customers are so underdeveloped and does not offer much in terms of customization of design.

There is a high demand that comes to customizing these emails because store owners would want to customize these default emails to match with their store designs and styles. If you find yourself as one of these store owners, you came in the right place.

A lot of tools had been developed to help resolve this issue. In this article, I’ll take you through the easiest way you need to know about customizing your WooCommerce email templates in order to match your brand, so you can break away from the vague template that are defaults for WooCommerce.

Why Customize Email Templates?

There are lots of advantages that comes with customizing the WooCommerce Emails, some of these include the following:

  1. Unlike the regular WooCommerce’s mail template which would show the same or very similar mail concepts from different stores to a customer and make it difficult for them to easily identify a specific store, an Email customizer would help have a specific brand design concept for your Emails that could be easily recognized by most customers.
  2. There is an advantage of more flexibilities in terms of additional elements that could be used in your templates to spice up your designs since WooCommerce’s default is a ‘take-as-is’ kind of design.
  3. You have the ability to include several information in the Emails you send out to your customers and add more values in term of personalization etc.

How to use Growmatik to run cross-channel marketing automation for WooCommerce

The secret to effective marketing automation lies in the customer journey, not in individual channels. Simply put, a journey involves at least two touch points across various channels. The main drawbacks of single-channel solutions is that they only cover one touchpoint and tend not to be integrated with other solutions. This results in contradictory, ineffective personalizations, like receiving a remarketing ad for a product even after you’ve already bought it! To avoid this kind of slip-up, marketers must take a cross-channel approach to marketing automation that courts customers in a systematic effort across various touchpoints.

In this article, we’ll discuss how to develop complete cross-channel marketing automations for WooCommerce using Growmatik.

The case for cross-channel marketing automation

If you’re looking to improve your automations, consider the following changes: go from single-channel to multi-channel, from fragmented to harmonized and from one-time-only to consistent. These shifts in approach make all the difference for your customers. It helps them feel seen and catered to in a highly competitive market saturated with generic marketing materials. What does each of these changes achieve?

Multi-channel

Working across multiple channels lets you collect information about your customer from a variety of sources, helping you to develop a greater understanding of their wants, needs and habits. This means being able to provide them with relevant content, like personalized marketing emails connected to their browsing history on your website.

Harmonized

Using a single, unified automation tool means being able to design and execute materials across channels as diverse as website, emails, SMS and more, so that customers are consistently marketed to at every step of their journey. Targeting a cart abandoner? A harmonized solution lets you send a follow-up email, craft a personalized homepage, provide exclusive discounts and more to convince them to carry out that purchase.

Consistent

Your relationship with any customer will change over time, and your strategy has to develop as well. Advanced triggering criteria will help you support your customer every step of the way, whether your focus is acquisition or retention. Got a new visitor? Offer him a “subscribe” pop up with a freebie, then a welcome email, an exclusive discount and, a few days later, a follow-up email to keep him engaged.

Now let’s dive into the 3 key steps behind cross-channel marketing for WooCommerce!

1- Cross channel data collection

Marketing is all about being relevant, not simply grabbing attention. To make a sales pitch with true relevancy, our focus has to shift from the product to the customer. What are their needs, habits, problems and concerns, and how can we conduct marketing campaigns that address them directly?

But few customers directly communicate their needs to the brands the shop with. Instead, you’ve got to collect that information at every touchpoint of interaction between your brand and your customers. Every time a customer navigates to your landing page, browses through your blog or interacts with emails or pop ups, they tell you more about what kind of customer they are. Their shopping history, how they respond to emails and what kind of offers they respond to will inform you even better about their needs and habits.

To achieve true personalization, our job as marketers is to gather the clues our customers leave at every point of interaction, analyze them and use them to design truly relevant marketing campaigns.

Here’s a comprehensive list of the kind of information you should look for to power your marketing campaigns:

 

Referral details Website activity Email activity Shopping activity
– Referring location

– Referring source website or campaign

– Visiting time of the day
– Top weekday activity

– Device and browser used

 

 

– Landing exit pages

– First and last visit dates

– Total number of visits

– Total number of viewed pages

– Visited pages

– Average time spent per visit

– Total time spent on website

– Total number of campaigns sent

– Date of last opened and clicked emails

– Number of opened, unopened, clicked and unclicked campaigns

– Last opened and clicked on email

– Average days before converting (subscribing, first purchase)

– Purchase frequency

– Product category

– Top purchased item

– Abandoned cart

– Total number of orders, purchased items and order value

– Number of coupons used

– First and last order dates

We can gather this information from different channels. Unfortunately, using different marketing tools or plugins for each touchpoint will make it difficult to compile all of this disparate data and turn it into actionable conclusions. Instead, it’s best to opt for one cross-channel solution that will allow you to collect each piece of the puzzle and analyze the data as a whole. The most effective options will also have the capability to craft behavioral segments and personalized automations for each segment, as well as monitor how well the automations perform.

Growmatik is one of the best cross-channel softwares to help you collect and use information about your customers. Growmatik creates user profiles for each new visitor to your website and builds these profiles over time based on user behavior at touchpoints from emails to popups. From the People section, you’ll be able to work with 50+ behavioral filters to help you craft effective segments, no matter how simple or complex.

2- Craft the right customer segmentation

Once we’ve collected enough data, the next step is dividing our customer base into groups depending on their characteristics or behavior. You’ll want to focus on segmentation as it directly relates to customer value. Some strategies for segmentation include defining your ideal customer and deciding if order size or number of orders is more important. You can also choose to target a specific country or region and decide how often you want your customers to visit your site.

One key way that a lot of e-commerce businesses measure customer value is via RFM values (recency, frequency and monetary). Growmatik allows you to segment your customers based on RFM values via filters in the People section. This in turn makes it possible for you to craft custom campaigns, such as VIP exclusive offers, that will boost customer activity even more:

If certain customers do not meet your RFM expectations, you can target them using relative time selectors (like ‘not on’ and ‘more than’) and serve them a reactivation campaign to boost their engagement.

Two key—and often neglected—elements you can use when creating segments. The first involves leading/lagging segmentation and the second has to do with the quality of segments. Fortunately, cross-channel marketing automation covers both leading and lagging segmentation, allowing you to provide holistic support at any point in the customer journey. Let’s quickly define these two categories of segmentation:

●     Lagging segmentation involves any activity in the past. With lagging segmentation you analyze customer behavior over their lifetime by looking at metrics like shopping history, on-site activity, or options like last visit date, last purchase date & count, number of campaigns sent. You can then design and execute specific campaigns with these in mind.

●     Leading segmentation involves any present or future activity. With leading segmentation, you can customize user experience from the very first interaction, such as a new visitor navigating to your site. Key metrics in this form of segmentation include referring location & timezone, referring website source, referring device, first landing page and similar details.

Any marketing automation tool you choose should be able to cover both bases. Growmatik’s automation dashboard lets you create personalized automations for any step in the customer’s journey. One way to greet brand new visitors, for example, is to include their location in the hero section, or add a welcome message based on their local time zone.

3- Build raft cross-channel automations

For anyone practicing WooCommerce marketing automation at scale, this is one of the most difficult parts of the process—and perhaps the most important. Before you move on to this step, it is vital that you have researched your website funnels, created a comprehensive profile for your ideal customer, and defined your key customer segments. Once you have, you can craft customized campaigns to target each segment, depending on their status, need and preferences. Your best friend in this process will be a comprehensive cross-channel software capable of organizing, serving and monitoring a variety of automations from a single dashboard. A software like Growmatik!

Next, let’s dive into how to create cross-channel automations in Growmatik! No time to waste!

Automation Step 1- Set your segments

From Gowmatik’s People section, craft your segments by defining a variety of personal or behavioral attributes or by creating groups of attributes. You’ll have over 50 filters in six different categories to experiment with. The six categories include: personal details, referral details, site activity, email activity, shopping activity and custom attributes.

To get started, select a user type and add or modify your filters, using as many filters as you wish. Each filter comes with a custom set of options to further refine your segmentation.

 

Growmatik also offers a number of pre-made custom segments via the sidebar. These include common segmentation options such as new leads or VIP customers to help you save time. Be sure to check the filters and ensure they line up with your marketing strategy. Once you’ve started experimenting with the filtering options for your segments, you’ll be able to monitor the results via the user table, which will provide you with information such as user name, country, last visit and more.

Automation step 2- Target each segment with custom-made automations

Each segment’s specifications will help you decide which personalizations and channels to use to target them. Growmatik automations all use the familiar “IF … THEN” structure, and each comes with the following:

Defining Condition(s)

This defines the subject of your automation. Generally this involves a group of people with one or more of the attributes in Table 1.

Defining Action(s)

Once the set condition is met, an action is triggered. Potential actions include:

      • Showing a popup,
      • Personalizing a webpage
      • Sending an email

…and more!

To make more complicated automations, simply define a chain of conditions and actions. This could involve targeting users living in a specific country or searching for a specific product, or users who have opened a certain number of emails over their lifetime.

The simplest option is to assign any automation to a segment by selecting the Automate Section option on the People page in Growmatik. You can execute these automations at any touchpoint simply by selecting the relevant action(s), such as email, webpage, popups and more:

The capacity to create multi-step automations is a vital feature of any holistic cross-channel marketing automation platform.

Automation step 3 – Craft customized content for marketing campaigns

Targets are locked, guns are drawn…but where’s your ammo? The next step in the process is creating the content that makes up your personalized campaigns. But remember, it pays to be picky about this content! You’ll need custom-made materials rather than generic content to snag new customers.

Personalize visual content as needed

Each automation tool will offer different options for personalization. Growmatik comes complete with a special visual interface for web page personalization. This tool will help you edit your page content from the frontend, no coding necessary! This intuitive interface allows you to drag and drop new elements such as buttons, product and blog lists, text, image and video from the elements library.

Once you choose “page personalize” as your action, you’ll need to select a page to personalize. You’ll then be taken to the personalizer environment where you can make the changes you need.

Try dynamic keywords

With Growmatik, you can create custom emails, landing pages and personalized popups for WordPress. To achieve this, the software offers a variety of dynamic keywords to help you personalize your textual content across each channel. Here are the categories of keyword to choose from:

      • General info keywords such as date, daytime, weekday, month
      • Referral details keywords such as UTM parameters in the URL
      • Personal info keywords such as name, city, country
      • Behavioral info keywords such as user’s time spent on the website, number of viewed pages, number of clicked and opened emails
      • Shopping info keywords such as first and last purchase dates, number of purchases and orders, total order value

Add custom product or blog lists to your emails and web pages

Using your customer’s shopping or browsing history, you can add personalized product or blog lists to your marketing materials. In Growmatik, this could mean lists containing any of the following: related products, product categories, abandoned items, related upsells, related cross-sells, related discounted items.

With your user’s reading history, you can do the same by providing suggested blog posts or blog lists via web pages or emails.

Use your popups and emails to serve exclusive offers

The goal of personalized marketing materials is to make your user feel seen and appreciated. To trigger this positive bias, offer exclusive deals to your customers at key moments and touchpoints. For new subscribers, for example, you can send an exclusive coupon for their first purchase a few days after they’ve subscribed.

Growmatik is the perfect tool to craft functional coupons to embed in pop ups and emails. Define the coupon settings and the software will generate a functional code to be served to the user in the page frontend.

Wrapping Up…

In this article, we’ve covered all the bases of cross-channel marketing automation: the theory behind it, the advantages it presents over single-channel automation and how to use it to boost efficiency, customer engagement and overall growth. We also went over the 3 key steps in any effective automation strategy: collecting user data, crafting user segments and developing custom automations.

Although setting up basic marketing automations doesn’t need to eat up all of your time, it may be necessary to invest time and resources to get actionable observations about user behavior. Once you’ve built your automation foundation, however, each new iteration will be more and more streamlined and much faster. As you develop your system, you’ll come to understand what’s missing, what touchpoints are most important and how to leverage personalization to engage customers and convert leads. Most important of all, you should recognize that marketing automation is ultimately a long term strategy and requires continuity, patience and dedication to reach its full potential.

Detailed Page Stat

Inside the dashboard, you can get to the popularity section, which is ranked for keywords based on clicks and impressions.

Pagespeed Insights

Scroll down your main panel and then you will get information regarding page speed. So, there is no need to search the other plugins to determine the speed of your page loading. By the way, unlike many plugins that perform this function, the Google plugin will not affect the performance of the site and slow down the loading speed.

P.S. You can check the loading speed of each page simply by opening it in your site panel.

By the way, the plugin does not affect the performance of your plugin, which is a significant advantage. If you still have not decided whether you need this product or not, then there are three reasons why you should get started with this tool:

Ease of use

Why complicate what can be facilitated? And we are talking specifically about why use the tools separately if you can get them right on your site. Especially if you consider that the product is available for free, then why not spend a little of your time and get all the tools you need right at your fingertips.

Open Custom Access to Metrics

In the era of data-driven marketing, access to custom metrics and instant reporting is one of the main competitive advantages. When several specialists work on your website promotion or you want to stay updated on the success of your marketing strategies, using Google Site Kit becomes essential since it generates structured data with the help of the unified solution.

This type of work is much more convenient for both site owners and specialists since there is no need to constantly request access to analytics, reports, and so on. All the site owner needs to do is create the required type of access for the user.

Replace Digital Marketing Service for Free

Unless you are using third-party agencies or digital marketing services, there is no need to do so with this plugin. As you already understood, the plugin provides you with fresh stats and analytics for your site in one place. That is, on your site.
