Coupon for Bloggers – Best Way to Save Money for WordPress Bloggers

For those who just started blogging, the cost of setting up WordPress blog can be pretty high for some of us. Bloggers that will definitely feel the impact are especially for those who want their WordPress blog looks great but at the same time, they are in country which the currency makes them to be at the losing end.

However, in this internet age, it is almost possible to get something at a lower cost if we know the way. Rather than have to pay the full price, we can at least save few dollars which can be used for the purchase of other products, for example.

Online coupon site – The best place to start

For those who do not know, there are a lot of online coupon sites which you find discount coupons for most of online products in the internet. The most popular online coupon site is RetailMeNot. For your information, I have saved a lot from the coupons that I found in the site.

However, to find online discount coupons that are related to WordPress can be tough as in the site such as RetailMeNot have no specific area allocated to WordPress. So, it can take a lot of our time to find discount coupons for WordPress related products from what RetailMeNot claimed, 50000 online stores.

Coupons for Bloggers – Online coupon site for bloggers

For your information, there is new online coupon site, Coupon for Bloggers that has just been launched by the owner of WpRecipes.com, Jean-baptiste Jung. The best part is the coupons that are being listed are only for blogging related products. So, it would be easy for to find any interesting coupons which can save a lot of money if know how to use it well enough.

Coupon for bloggers

For your information, the coupons are being categorized into 5 groups. They are:

Hosting – For those who are planning to buy new web hosting for their WordPress blogs

Domain names – For those who want have new domain names for their latest blogging project

WordPress – For those who are looking for premium WordPress themes and plugins to make their blog looks and works better

Ebooks – For those who want to broaden their knowledge and skills on blogging

Blogging tools – For those who are looking for blogging tool such as Aweber for newsletters

Need other alternative?

Besides the normal online coupons site like RetailMeNot to get bargain on blogging related products, there is also another online coupon site that you can go. It is called Theme Coupons.

As compared to Coupon for Bloggers, this site focuses on more specific area i.e. premium WordPress themes. However, this site is still new and not many coupons that are available for the users. I expect that this site will grow bigger and have more coupons in few months time when the site gets the attention of the WordPress communities.

Have you use online coupon site?

Do you usually visit online coupon sites first before making any online purchase? Which site that you usually go? And what do you think about the two new online coupon sites which have been set up specifically for bloggers?

Feel free to share your thoughts and experiences. I am eager to know more about them.

    simpleCart(js) 2.0 – Simple Free Online Store WordPress Theme

    Sometimes, it is a huge waste for those who are investing so much in online store system but do not have much items to be sold to match the cost that they have incurred. At the end, most of them will incur losses

    The alternative for expensive online store system

    However, in recent months, communities around WordPress especially the developers has start to focus their attention in creating WordPress themes to ‘convert’ a simple blogging platform to an online store software which can be offered at cheaper price.

    Although before this there are few online store WordPress themes have been developed, the design and structure has started to look similar with the expensive online store system for the past few months back.

    simpleCart (js) – One page online store WordPress theme

    simpleCart (js) 2.0 is a very light one page online store WordPress theme. It is simple javascript shopping cart in under 20kb that you can setup in minutes. What you need is just simple html and programming knowledge.

    It comes with shopping cart, GoogleCheckout along with Paypal, easy currency settings, tax, shipping, and a new method for adding items to your cart that requires no javascript, and allows for different inputs and options.

    Here are few screenshots of the free online store WordPress theme.

    simpleCart (js) - Free Online Store WordPress theme

    simpleCart (js) - Free Online Store WordPress theme

    simpleCart (js) - Free Online Store WordPress theme

    Personally, I think this theme definitely suitable for those who are planning to bring their small and medium size business online as the cost (plus cost of failure) is definitely low as the only cost that they will incur is web hosting.

    However, this theme will only be effective tool if the products that are going to be put into this online store are limited as it would be frustrating for the customers if they have to keep scrolling the mouse and eyes to view one by one the products that we are selling.

    For me, the maximum number of products should be only 12.

    What do you think?

    What do you think about this free online store WordPress theme? What is the maximum number of products should be in the page?

    Feel free to share your opinions and thoughts. It is great to have it over here.
