Working on keeping your website in order and updated can become stressful. At some time during your online home business career, you may want or need to add WordPress user permissions to your website. This is going to help ease the burden of running a business online.

A New User Account Come With Its Benefits

WordPress user permissions feature helps you create trust with your website visitors. When they find your content in their search results, they are going to want to make sure you are a real person.

One of the first things a website visitor will notice is if there is any site activity. The visitors can check by looking at your most recent comment and post.

Have you ever been to a website and noticed Admin as an author? Have you ever wonder who is Admin? This person seems to be operating on a lot of WordPress websites. And, do you like Admin's photo. (Mystery Person Image)

Creating trust and being transparent, as in telling all, will help your website go a long way on the information highway.

Add Guest Writer Permissions For Site Content

Guest bloggers can create content for people following your site. This is a great way to lighten your writing workload. Basically, you inform the writer what format you want. Then you run off to perform other online business duties.

Are you operating a membership or subscription site? WordPress user permissions function will make it easy for your members to access their account while keeping your premium product out of free members sites.

Do you want to get more people to join your mailing list? Try offering extra bonuses like 10-25% off your services. But only offer the discount to the new people who sign up to your subscribers' list.

I went into my users do hicky in my site dashboard and discovered I had started building a email list. I don't know how but I guess I should be glad right. Thanks for the training, things that are good to know about how to do that, the right way. Please like my comments, thanks Sruffey.

I'm happy that the tutorial has helped you. The list of user you refer to on your website is not an email list. That is the people who have signed up to be able to leave comments or get access to your blog feed when you post.

I don't think that you have implied permission to email them. But you have sent me down a rabbit hole, because if so, I've got a heck of a list built over the last 3 year.

I'm going to look into this topic more.
Thank you, please share this training with at least 3 people.

Hi there, thanks for the training, very interesting. I noticed that when I click on 'users' in my back office I only have me as admin and that's it. Does this mean that I don't have to bother with the whole process you are talking about here? Thanks

Hi, Stefanie. Great question, thank you. You should worry if you notice a user name 'admin'.

When you set up your WordPress Website, did you create a new user account for your self?

If you did, it is ok to delete the user named admin.

You will use the new user you created to access your WordPress site.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. Yes I did create a new one for me so I will indeed go in and delete that especially as it's a security risk.

I'm glad I have found this out!

Thanks :-)
