My wordpress site does not have a “plugin” option.

What a great feature! My sales pitch relies on convincing my clients that they can update their site themselves. I was planning on creating videos for them but your stuff is so much better.

I’m really looking forward to having the option to customize which videos are available. Is there an ETA for that?

shaunkara

Good stuff. This is definitely going into all of my clients’ sites.

One more thing I’d REALLY love to see. I’d like the OSTraining section to contain an up-sell of sorts, which would entice my clients to purchase a membership with OST through my affiliate link. The commission could go into my account as credits for my membership.

Tell me you can do that. C’mon 🙂

shaunkara

I know about the affiliate program. In fact I have a pending application.

But what I’m suggesting is to actually capitalize on the OSToolbar idea for affiliate marketing. If my clients are seeing your vids in the site I build them, then there’s a good chance they might be interested in subscribing to your services. The signup link would obviously be an affiliate link.

If you can’t see the plugin upload menu, select the ‘Add New’ link on the Plugins page.

Hi John Loty, a new member here.

Just installed the WP OS Toolbar and got to the settings (to enter the API number) but could not proceed because all that was shown was: –

OSToolbar Configuration

Plugin Settings

with no place to enter the API

fairgo4all

Yes – again I finally figured it out…sometimes quickly…sometimes slowly 🙂
