How To Save Money On Premium WordPress Plugins & Themes
Get Premium Plugins & Themes Without Spending $$
I often get asked how it costs to run so many sites, and how much I'm spending on Themes and Plugins.
The truth is, I spend very little on themes and plugins because I use FestingersVault to download GPL Licensed copies of them.
Most beginners, or people who want to start multiple sites, see the price of themes and plugins alone can run into the thousands of dollars per year.
This is a quick tutorial/guide on one of my favorite platforms, I've referred this to thousands of people, all of which have loved it so far.
I'll teach you what it is, why you should use it, and how to use it, down to downloading and installing your first theme/plugin.
Starting niche sites ain't cheap, I know, but you don't necessarily have to pay for everything, if you're just starting off, this is a great option for you.
The platform I'm talking about today takes care of all of that, the owner buys the lifetime deals for each one, and offers you an almost unlimited amount of themes/plugin downloads starting at $15/mo.
This is neither illegal or inherently wrong, but I feel like it's worth mentioning that, when you eventually are able to afford your own plugins and themes, pay for them, to support developers.
What is FestingerVault?
This platform lets you download 10 GPL copies of themes/plugins every day for just $15/mo, they also have their own WordPress Plugin which you can install to keep all the plugins and themes up to date, and manage them easily.
They offer over 25,000 WordPress Themes & Plugins.
These plugins are GPL (legit), the owner just buys a lifetime access subscription and shares it with you.
I highly recommend you try this platform and save yourself hundreds of dollars on plugins & themes, this is especially good for 2 major reasons:
Affordable - allows you to try new things.
Secure - everything is scammed for malware (read bottom).
Here's some premium versions of themes & plugins I recommend getting from Festinger, especially if you're just starting off.
I personally have the Lifetime plan because I know I'll be using this for years, however, with just the Riding Solo plan, you can download 10 themes/plugins per day, more than enough for most people.
If it doesn't load, it means they don't have it, or you haven't spelled it correctly, next you should see the page for the plugin/theme, click on Sales Page and Details/Versions section to make sure it's the correct one while you wait for the VirusTotal scan to complete.
Next, go to your WordPress Plugins > Add New
And Upload the .zip you downloaded from Festinger, click Install Now
Next, click Activate Plugin, you can then find your plugin in the "Installed Plugins" section.
It’s worth mentioning their auto-update plugin, which automatically updates all the plugins you downloaded from them.
I highly recommend this app if you build lots of sites, it’ll save you thousands of dollars in themes and plugins, and will save you months of security work if you decide to cheap out and download nulled plugins from sketchy sites.
