*WordPress Plugins Reviewed by John Overall**

InstantLy
premium Plugin
Referred by Ivan Ciric
The Lowdown:
This plugin is great in most aspects I do like the way it works and it allows you to see how many are on your site and then to create a message to blast out to them. This is a great way to communicate an instant special or simply to get some attention for the visitor.
You get a spot on your WP dashboard to enter the message you want to send out, you can determine how long the message appears on the site also the default is 10 sec
it seems to work very well on a single install of WordPress but I was having issues using it in an MU environment. After about 10 min all seemed to function well for it and the tests worked out great.
Rating 4 Dragons.
Web Ranger
Referred by Dominic Lucenario
The Lowdown:
This is a freemium 3rd party service plugin that offers security protection and monitoring for your website.. pretty easy to get setup and you can even register your free account while you setup the plugin.
They give you a web console where you can go and see the results on any issues found on your site and if you move the higher tier for the plugin service you get the support of their security team to help deal with the issues.
This looks to be a pretty nice way to monitor things and seems to work well in MU. I will come back with reports as they come in on this.
Rating 4 Dragons
Domain Check Plugin
Referred by Domain Check
The Lowdown:
This is a good plugin if you want to have a second tier monitoring your domains something you can view from inside your WordPress website, (since we know we never go outside of that right).. While this is a great idea and will help provide you with coupons and deals on coupons and hosting I can't help but wonder if all the links aren't affiliate links for the developer. not that that is an issue but I feel it needs to be spelled out if they are.
I am not sure how valuable this is due to me already using a couple tools to monitor my domains and since I do not look for deals all that often those may be of help but the rest is not allot of use for me.

A customer ordering something from your shop for the first time is great. But how do you entice them back to buy more? And how do you keep them coming back?
Next Order Discount (NOD) is an extension to the WooCommerce WordPress plugin that enables shop owners to attract further purchases from their customers automatically and without any need for manual intervention. Following an initial order, NOD can be configured to schedule a customized follow up email to the customer tempting them to complete further purchases by offering a shop discount. The coupons are automatically created within WooCommerce and can be included in the email content with the use of shortcodes.
