Choosing the right review plugin can be tough due to the number features to learn about and the array of plugins to choose from. With price tags in the $100 range you need to make the right decision the first time. So how do you decide which plugin to go with? Here are some considerations to keep in mind as you research the available review plugins…
What Is The Purpose of Your Site?
When reading through the plugin sales pages it is easy to get caught up in all the available features. Don’t get hung up on the features that you don’t need. Clearly define the purpose of your site from the outset and measure each review plugin against the specific criteria needed for your site.
Level Of Web Design Experience
Some of the plugins we reviewed are extremely powerful, yet they require some web design and coding knowledge to really tap into their full potential. If you are a novice web designer then make sure to evaluate the themes that are included with each plugin as you will want to make sure that you find a design that you are happy with, both aesthetically and functionally.
We rate the ease of use & support for each plugin in our reviews. Pay close attention to these ratings if this is a concern for you.
Track Record & Outlook
When buying a premium plugin you are often not only buying the current feature set, but also future updates to the plugin. Because of this it is important to find a plugin that is well managed and developed by a forward thinking devoted developer. Look into the plugin history to see how often they release updates and how many substantial features are added in each new release.
It’s also worth noting that a few of the premium WordPress review plugins have been sold in the past couple years and are no longer being developed by the original creator. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but keep in mind that the developer running the show is ultimately the one who dictates the support and quality of future releases you will be getting.
