Revue Plugin for WordPress

Hi guys!

This past Meetup I showed a few of you the platform I use for my weekly newsletter (daveslist.email). It’s called Revue, and it is bar none the easiest way to get an email newsletter up and running, and on top of that it’s FREE.

Naturally the question came up about whether it is integrated with WordPress, and it isn’t. However, I just found out that they offer a WordPress plugin to drive subscribers from your WordPress blog or site. Here is the link:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/revue/

I haven’t tried it myself yet, but it looks like it creates a subscription box on your blog that imports your subscriber list into Revue. From there you just create your newsletter on the Revue platform and fire it off to your subscribers!

Anyway, I just wanted to update you on it in case you weren’t sure about trying/using Revue because there wasn’t a direct WordPress integration.

Hope that’s helpful!

WPMU $199/yr For Life Coupon Code

wpmudev-logo-2011aGuys,

Those of you who were at the last meeting heard about a deal from WPMU which expired the day before. I said that I’d reach out to them to see if they’d extend it for us and great news: they did!

WPMUdev is a resource I’ve used (on a paid basis) since 2012. They’re raising their annual membership to $588 a year, but they sent me the coupon code DEVLIFE to pass on to you guys. If you sign up by midnight Thursday March 31 and use the coupon code DEVLIFE, your annual membership will be $199 for life (or until you don’t want the membership anymore, cancel anytime obviously).

Membership includes a host of tools like premium themes and plugins, how-tos and tutorials, and an awesome WordPress support community. Once again, here is the link to sign up: https://premium.wpmudev.org/ and remember to use the coupon code DEVLIFE.

While WPMU is a fantastic resource, it’s more for people who are WordPress developers and/or want to make money with WordPress than it is for casual WordPress users. Just thought I’d throw that out there. It’s totally worth it for me, but your mileage may vary.

Hope this is helpful!
