At Automattic, we believe in giving organizations the website tools they need to succeed online. Jetpack was designed to provide all of the awesome parts of WordPress.com to use on your WordPress.org site (read more about WordPress.com and WordPress.org). While Jetpack contains over 30 different features, we wanted to highlight a few free features that would be particularly useful for those running a site for a not for profit organization:
Jetpack Social makes it easy to automatically share your site’s posts on several social media networks when you publish a new post. Instead of having to share your content on each social media platform your organization runs, let us handle each post for you. Use the saved time to focus on growing your organization! Read more.
Brute force attacks protection.
Brute force attacks are probably not something many people think about until an attack occurs on their site. The last thing you want to deal with as a not-for-profit is for your site to be brought down because of these attacks. By enabling Jetpack’s Brute force attacks protection feature, your site will automatically block unwanted login attempts keeping your organization safe and sound without you having to worry about a thing. Be proactive and keep your organization safe. Read more.
Have you ever gotten an email from a member saying they can’t access your site? It’s a terrible feeling knowing your site went down and you had no clue. To help give you a headstart in case this does happen, we built Monitor, which does as its name suggests and monitors your site to make sure it’s still up. If it goes down, we will send you an email to let you know! We even email you when we notice it’s back up. Read more.
Many visitors land on your site once, never to return. Convert more visitors into regular readers of the content your organization works hard to produce by making it easy to subscribe to your site, so new content is pushed directly to them. On a similar note, rather than hoping your organization’s members get the latest updates, subscriptions make it easy for them to receive notifications about your latest news. Read more.
Getting an audience to your site can be tough! Thankfully, Jetpack’s Related Post feature can help keep them there once you get them there longer. For any new post you post, the Related Posts feature scans all of your posts, analyzes them, and lets you show contextual posts your visitors might be interested in reading after they’re done with whatever post they’re on. Most sites that activate this see an increase in traffic! The best part is that there is no additional load on your site when you activate this feature, as we do all the processing. Read more.
The best way to engage with your audience is to first understand what it is they are looking at. Jetpack Stats provide exactly that, with a clear and attractive interface that makes understanding your stats a breeze. The best part is that stats are automatically enabled when you activate and connect Jetpack to WordPress.com – no additional setup is required! Read more.
