I would like to be able to send newsletters to double opt-in subscribers and assign them to a user level of subscriber automatically.
I also would like to have some real suggestions on how to best utilize the features of "Pay Per View", "Membership", "Social Marketing", and "Forums". I mean specifically how to use the best features of each plugin to channel people toward a purchase of my products and services.
The website url: webrankallstars.com is the website I am referring to. The target market is the person who needs a custom website that is cross compatible HTML5 etc. My target market needs social, SEO, videos, etc. and I will build the website and offer training videos on how to use WordPress to manage their site.
The training is part of a service package. There will also be a separate video training series on how to set up their own site from the ground up. I figure most people will get overwhelmed and get me to build their site anyway.
The major emphasis is that all of their needs for online presence will be accomplished through us. Even mobile apps will be built for them. I don't have my packages developed yet for building them in to a shopping cart but I would like to set up the sales funnel from home page to shopping cart by using the aforementioned plugins.
The original question about mailchimp necessity is in reference to the mailchimp new release upcoming. It looks like using mailchimp just adds another API making things more complicated than necessary. Is that true?
Please offer some strategies on how to best build a sales funnel using the plugins mentioned?
