Software developers have done it for a long time now – for a limited time offered their services or products for free.
But that model wouldn’t seem to make sense for premium content, would it? If you always offered your content for free for a limited time, it would seem that all someone would need to do is to check it out right after it was published.

If you get a lot of comments on your posts, then you may want to think about paginating them – i.e. breaking them up into different pages after a certain number.
Paginating comments is super easy. In fact, it’s built into the admin area.
Over 5 million users rely on MailChimp to deliver their email marketing campaigns and undoubtedly that number includes a good many WordPress users. Perhaps you are one of them.
