2. David’s WooCommerce Highlights

Here are a few notes written by David of PeachPay, WooWeekly co-author:

The Holy Trinity of Inventory Management 

Small businesses lacking a structured inventory management process should check out Simple Inventory Management. This plugin has the holy trinity of inventory management: barcodes, scanning, AND location fields. Very much a unique combination in the WooCommerce inventory plugin category. On top of that, the customer support is solid, a mobile app (iOS) is concluding development, and the price is low. So stop micromanaging the inventory management process of your store or your client’s store, and install this plugin so you can take that well-deserved vacation. 

Keep Those Leads Warm and Toasty

Perhaps you are a plugin developer keeping leads warm by showcasing new plugins or plugin features. Perhaps you are a web developer keeping leads warm by showcasing new sites. Nowadays, if you’re not keeping your leads warm with an email digest, you are at a competitive disadvantage.
