Improve Your Remote Collaboration With P2
P2 powers internal collaboration at WordPress.com — and now it’s free for everyone.







As more collaboration is happening remotely and online — work yes, but increasingly also school and personal relationships — we’re all looking for better ways to work together online. Normally, teachers hand out homework to students in person, and project leaders gather colleagues around a conference table for a presentation. Suddenly all this is happening in email, and Slack, and Zoom, and Google docs, and a dozen other tools.



At WordPress.com, our 15 years as a fully distributed company with over 1,200 employees working from 77 countries relies on P2: an all-in-one team website, blog, database, and social network that consolidates communications and files in one accessible, searchable spot.



It powers work at WordPress.com, WooCommerce, and Tumblr. And today, a beta version is available for anyone — for your newly-remote work team, your homeschooling pod, your geographically scattered friends. P2 is the glue that gives your group an identity and coherence. 







What’s P2?



P2 moves your team or organization away from scattered communication and siloed email inboxes. Any member of your P2, working on any kind of project together, can post regular updates. Discussions happen via comments, posted right from the front page and updated in real time, so your...
Hosting Live (Virtual!) Events: Lessons from Planning the WordPress.com Growth Summit
Back in January, my team at WordPress.com was busy planning another year of exciting in-person events — community meetups, conference keynotes, booths, and in-person demos — at large exhibit halls and hotels around the world.



Then the world changed overnight, and because of a global pandemic, our Events team — just like many of you running your own businesses — had to rethink everything about how we connect with people. 



So we went back to work. We’ve learned so much in just five months, and it culminates in the upcoming WordPress.com Growth Summit — our first-ever multi-day virtual conference. It’s going to be a jam-packed program full of expert advice from business leaders and entrepreneurs. We’ll also have breakout sessions with our own WordPress experts, the Automattic Happiness Engineers, taking you through everything you need to know about building a powerful, fast website that works great for SEO, eCommerce, and growing your business. 



In the lead-up to the Summit, we wanted to share everything we’ve learned so far about running virtual events, from YouTube to webinars to Facebook Live and ticket sales. There are dozens of great solutions for staying connected to and supporting your audience — here’s what’s been working for us: 



Live webinars 



In April, we launched a series of daily webinars, 30-minute live demos and...

Wondering what to expect? Here are 10 entrepreneurs, founders, bloggers, and developers scheduled to speak at the summit.







Jason Snell

3 Ways Visual Search Can Boost Your Brand
Have you ever seen a gadget, piece of clothing, appliance, or piece of furniture online–only to meet dead ends when searching for a place to purchase it? If this scenario sounds familiar, visual search is the solution. And, if you sell physical products, incorporating visual search into your marketing strategy can help boost your brand.
Let’s talk about what, exactly, visual search is (hint: it’s not the same as Google Image Search), how it works, and a few ways it can make your products more visible online.
What is Visual Search?
Visual search is an emerging online search technology that allows users to search the web or specific sites with images. Depending on the way the site is set up, there are a few different ways to accomplish this. Essentially, visual search lets shoppers search for items they’ve seen online without the need to describe them in text search.
A wide array of industries can benefit from visual search. It’s most effective in fashion and style, retail, and home decor. However, any physical product can gain exposure through search strategies.
How Does Visual Search Work?
There are four prominent visual search tools that assist users with finding items online: Google Lens, Bing Visual Search, Amazon StyleSnap, and Pinterest Lens. Additionally, other retail companies have developed their own in-store search tools. Each tool functions in a slightly...

Divi Ribbon Module

A new module is added to the Divi Builder called Divi Ribbon. The module creates a blurb (complete with a title, content, icon, image, and buttons) and places a ribbon on that blurb. You have control over the placement and styling of the ribbon as well as the other elements in the module. The blurb includes a box shadow by default.
Divi Ribbon Content Tab

The Content tab includes the main settings, blurb rotation, image and icon, link, background, and admin label. The main settings provide selections for the ribbon type, location, text, title, and content.

There are 7 ribbon types to choose from. They work the same way and include the...
How to Build a Personalized Marketing Strategy
Personalized marketing is marketing that’s targeted to an individual customer’s needs. This strategy goes beyond inputting a buyer’s name in your email software. Instead, it’s meant to follow your customer through each stage of your sales funnel.
Consumers respond well to personalization. That’s because personalized marketing helps potential buyers feel seen and understood by your brand. In a world full of choices and noise, the brands that notice their customers will be the ones to stand out.
So how can you build a personalized marketing strategy for your brand? It all starts with data.
How Data Informs Personalized Marketing
First things first: personalized marketing is driven by data. Collecting user data will help you better personalize your marketing. This data can include:

Analytics measured and aggregated by the marketing platforms you use
Whether a visitor to your website clicks the call to action or responds to a messenger bot
The choices your subscribers make when they receive an email from you or download a freebie
How engaged a user is with your social media marketing
Whether a customer who has downloaded your app visits your brick-and-mortar store
Information customer support gathers during a phone call or chat
A potential customer’s next intended action

Data gives you a glimpse of where each customer lands in the buyer’s...
