Your Website Looks Great. So Should Your Emails.

A Brand New Design For Subscriber Emails

We recently updated the design of the emails that go out to your subscribers when a new post is published on your site. With this fresh design, we focused on modernizing the default email templates that come from Jetpack.

A Clean Look Focused on Your Content

Design can have a significant impact on engagement.

With the new emails, your subscribers will get a modern looking email when they subscribe, receive a welcome email, and whenever a new post is published. With the updated designs, your content comes first, and looks great on any device.

1. Confirmation Email

When a visitor subscribes to your site, the first email they’ll receive will ask them to confirm their subscription. This helps ensure that the person subscribing is the owner of the email address shared.

To personalize that message, you can edit the message that gets sent out. Just head to: Settings → Reading → Follower settings → “Blog follow email text”, and you’re all set.

2. Welcome Email

Once your subscriber has confirmed their subscription, they’ll receive a welcome email. This one’s really important.

It turns out that the average open rate of welcome emails is 82% (GetResponse, 2017). So, for every 100 emails sent, 82 people will open them. Compare that with the average email open rate of just 21%, and it’s easy to see how making a great first impression really matters.

3. New Subscriber Email

When your new subscriber gets their welcome email, you’ll also receive a new subscriber email. So you can celebrate.

4. New Post Updates

Now your subscriber’s all set, they’ll get a fresh new email every time a new post is added to your website. That’s one more reminder that you’re out there and publishing. And one more reason to keep coming back for more.

Getting Started

Email is one of the most efficient ways to reach your site visitors, with 4.3 Billion users around the world forecast for this year alone (Statista, 2021). 

With Jetpack, tapping into that huge audience is as simple as adding a block to your site. Check out our support guide for the subscribe block to walk you through how to get that up and running.

Adding the block makes it only a couple-of-clicks for your site visitors to subscribe to your content. 

And once they’ve subscribed, they’ll receive all of your latest updates – with the new, fresh design – direct to their inbox.

13 Things Every Medical Practice Website Should Include

A medical practice website is an essential tool for any healthcare provider. It can be used to share resources with patients, demonstrate your expertise, and spread the word about your services. It can also be instrumental in managing billing and payments, scheduling appointments, and granting patients access to their medical records.

To best serve existing and future patients, you’ll want to carefully plan your website’s features and content. If you’re a healthcare provider or a website developer that doesn’t have experience building medical practice websites, you may want to enlist the help of a developer who specializes in this area so you can be assured that ADA, HIPAA, and other compliance requirements are met. 

Whether you build your site yourself or hire a developer to do it for you, include the following 13 features to maximize the benefits for your patients and business:

Announcing Jetpack VideoPress: Ad-free, HD video for WordPress

Over the last decade, video has become an integral part of successful business strategy. It’s no longer enough to have video on your site to stand out; it’s essential to have it woven throughout the customer experience to drive traffic, generate leads, boost engagement, and increase sales.

Despite the ubiquity of video, the available solutions for WordPress are often lackluster. Ads can ruin the moment, presenting irrelevant content and increasing site abandonment. On top of that, there are challenges with integrating technology and self-hosting video.

That’s why we’re excited to present Jetpack VideoPress.

The Jetpack plugin is an all-in-one solution for WordPress sites with free and premium features that boost performance, security, marketing, design, and publishing. It’s developed and maintained by Automattic — the people behind WordPress.com.

It integrates seamlessly with WordPress, saving you the hassle that comes with dozens of standalone plugins. But, at the same time, it allows you to enable only the features you need, keeping your site management process simple.

Should you use a WordPress Migration Service?

Not all website hosts are created equal, and there may come a day when yours just isn’t cutting it anymore. Migration refers to the process of moving your existing WordPress site to a new host without affecting its functionality or content. It’s something you’ll need to do if you decide to switch hosts. 

There are various reasons why you might want to do this. Maybe you’re having issues with uptime or need more services as your business grows. Perhaps you need a plan with more features, storage capabilities, or faster loading times. Or, maybe you’ve just found a new provider with more competitive pricing. Whatever the reason, site migrations can seem intimidating, particularly if you’ve never done one before.

How to Migrate Your WordPress Site (to a New Host or Server)

Moving your WordPress site to a new host or server can seem daunting, but it’s sometimes necessary. The internet can seem like everything’s just floating out in space, but when you get down to the nitty gritty, your WordPress website files actually have to physically live somewhere. A hosting company’s job is to store your files and database so that your site can be accessed by anyone from any location around the world.

Ideally, your website can live happily at your hosting company forever and you never have to give the physical files any thought. But there may come a time when you want to move your website. Let’s take a look at a few reasons you might need to migrate to a new host and how you can do this easily.

What Is a CRM and Does Your Business Need One?

Do you feel like you’re always behind in your business no matter how hard you work? Are you failing to follow up with customers and missing out on new revenue? Are you struggling to understand what’s working and what’s not? As common as these feelings are for business owners and entrepreneurs, it doesn’t have to be this way.

Running any business requires an array of procedures, tasks, and details. The goal of a CRM is to make these tasks easier to complete. Once you start effectively using a CRM, your company will run more efficiently, increase sales, and track contact data better.

For new entrepreneurs just starting out, a CRM is an essential startup tool that will give you an edge over the competition so you don’t feel like you’re always climbing uphill.

Jetpack Blocks: Tools for Creating Engaging Content

According to Hosting Tribunal, 70 million new posts are published on WordPress blogs alone every month. And though the average post is 1,150 words long, the average time visitors spend on a page is only 16 seconds.

To beat the average, it’s more important than ever to create quality posts that hook website visitors. Engaging, top-notch content requires more than just a text editor — you need tools that allow you to build visual, interactive, multimedia experiences.

The WordPress block editor (and additional Jetpack blocks) give you the power to deliver that without needing to hire a developer or learn a single line of code.

What Does the Jetpack Plugin Do?

One of the greatest benefits of WordPress is its extendability — there’s a plugin for nearly any task you could imagine so you can build a website that accomplishes anything that you want. 

Does this mean you should load up on plugins? No. The more plugins you have, the slower your site loads, which negatively impacts your visitors’ experience. And some plugins can conflict with one another or with your theme, leading to errors or downtime.

That’s why Jetpack is a great option for WordPress sites: with dozens of tools in a single plugin, it provides a ton of functionality without weighing down your site.
