New Plugin Launch: Introducing the Social Deals Engine Plugin for WordPress

Over the last 6 months we have been slowly and quietly working on a new plugin which could help magnify and increase traffic and profits for any type of business and any type of internet marketer.  We have definitely done that now with the Social Deals Engine Plugin for WordPress.

Built as an Extendable Plugin, the Social Deals Engine is not just for product owners, it is also for Affiliate and CPA Marketers.  We have built the plugin to be both productive and versatile in how it performs.  The breadth of features the plugin has is extremely extensive and this is why we have made the plugin much like other extendable plugins in that you don’t have to install every extension if you don’t need it, thus lightening the load on your WordPress blog and keeping the clutter to a minimum.  You can create a full Deals Website or simply run individual offers.  The Plugin works with any WordPress Theme and can be customized to do exactly what you need it to do for your Business.

The Social Deals Engine allow you to run Deals and Offers for ANY products and/ or Services whether you own them or not.  Then have these Offers Socially Shared for increased Traffic, enhanced with Rich Snippets for a massive SEO boost, and then also integrate with any 3rd Party Mailing List provider like Aweber, Getresponse, Mailchimp, Mad Mimi, and more.  The plugin will increase your profits no matter what you want to offer.

We are running a 7 Day Only Special Offer Launch for the Plugin, then after the 7 Day Offer has expired, we will be moving to a very different model for the Social Deals Engine, but one which may look very familiar to you as well.  We will be offering the Base Social Deals Engine plugin for Free on WordPress.org.  Then, we will be hosting all the available Extensions for the plugin here on WPSocial.com for sale.  The 7 Day Special Offer for the Plugin will include all current extensions of the Plugin.  Right now there are 8 Extensions which include:  Social Sharing Discounts, Claim Listing Offers, Shipping, Taxes, PayPal Adaptive Payments, Stripe Payments, Authorize.net Payments, and our Discount Codes Extension.

7 Day Special Offer Launch:  Wednesday, May 1st at 12:00 PM EST  (Special Offer Closing at 12:00 PM EST May 8th, 2013)

The 7 Day Special Offer is Over and Has Been Closed.  Join the Notification List Below to Receive Updates When the Plugin is Officially Added to the WPSocial.com site here for Purchase.

*Note:  The Social Deals Engine Developer Bundle (Main Plugin + 7 Extensions) is available as a part of the WP Social Developer Bundle here at WPSocial.com.

 

There is so much in this plugin that I have made a Video Demo to show you the power this incredible plugin has.

Take a look:  (You can also test all the features yourself on the Social Deals Engine Demo Blog)

 

Increase Social Sharing by 300% for Each Visitor

Through the Social Sharing Discounts Extension you can allow visitors to your offers get instant discounts by Sharing your offers on Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus.  In the Plugin Admin as shown in the Video above, you can set a Discount for each Social Share, thus ensuring a 300% increase in Social Shares for each and every Visitor to your individual offers, plus, you also increase the Conversion Rates as well by getting your Visitor involved in lowering the price, thus becoming engaged in your offer and ready to buy with an average of an 89% Conversion rate on those who Socially Share your offers for Discounts.

This Social Sharing Discount feature can be used on ANY type of offer.  It is up to you and your imagination on how to make it an effective tool for Affiliate and CPA Offers as well.

Product Owner or Partner Offers

As I talked about above, the plugin was built to be a tool for all types of Marketers.  It has a strong set of features and with its integrated Shopping Cart (which comes with PayPal Standard already integrated in the base plugin) which allows you to do offers of your own products, physical products with shipping or simply using Vouchers, Digital Downloads with Download Protection, JV or Partner offers with auto split pay (for up to 6 Partners) using PayPal Adaptive Payments, Payment integration with Authorize.net and/ or Stripe, Discount Codes for increased promotional capabilities.

 

Affiliate and CPA Offers

As you can see by going to our Demo Blog via the link above, our Affiliate and CPA Offer listings can either direct visitors straight to these offers or you can use our Claim Listing feature which allows you to do things like add users to your Mailing List.  For CPA and Affiliate Offers with Coupon Codes, we have found that building CPA Landing Pages with the plugin is extremely effective and by using the Claim Listing feature, you can deliver your Coupon Codes and Offer Links via email, convert and get the Commission for the Offer, then have the individuals on your Mailing List for continued promotions.  Our Direct Affiliate Linking System pointed at Special Offers on Amazon and other sites has proven to be highly effective as well.

Entire Affiliate and CPA focused Niche Deal sites can be created using this plugin and with the layout and features the plugin has they can be built very fast.

 

Integrations

As usual we always ensure that each and every one of our plugins integrate with the others and this is especially true for the Social Deals Engine.  As you know, in order to maximize the effectiveness of any Deal or Special Offer, Reviews and Ratings for the offers can increase Conversions and Profits anywhere from 40-440%.  That is why we have integrated the Social Review Engine and Review Purchase Validation into both plugins so they can cross integrate with each other.  As you can see by looking at the Demo, we are also using the Social Review Theme with the plugin and by virtue of the integration with the Social Review Engine and Social Deals Engine you can have a beautiful Deals site running in a matter of minutes.

With our Social SEO focus, we have also ensured that the WP Social SEO Booster Pro plugin has been integrated as well.  With our Social Sharing features in the Social Deals Plugin, by using the SEO Booster Plugin you can quickly ensure each offer or deal is socially shared exactly the way you want it to be.  You can customize the look, title, description, and links to each offer’s social shares across Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus with this built in integration and this will definitely help increase your profits when Visitors to your site share your offers via the Social Sharing Discounts Extension.

Coming Soon…

We are big fans of WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads here at WP Social and we will be releasing Extensions which allow the Social Deals Engine to be used with both those Plugins as well, thus increasing its overall flexibility for those businesses who use those plugins for their WordPress sites.  Plus, we want to be able to use it right here on WP Social as well. 🙂

 

Developers

For those in the WordPress Community who want to extend the capabilities of the Social Deals Engine for your own use, you are in luck.  We will be opening up the Development of the plugin to any 3rd Part Developers who want to build extensions for the plugin.  We will also be allowing Developers to add your extensions to the Social Deals Engine Extension Marketplace when it opens up in the very near future.  More information will be coming on this soon.

Is there a way to give the merchants the ability to login, manage/post their own deals? There's a new extension from woo themes called Product Vendor that allows merchants to do this. Jus wondering if this extension will work with this social deals plugin. Product Vendors extension: http://www.woothemes.com/products/product-vendors/

Let me get this correct. I can setup a DD for each merchant where they can offer discounts on non tangible items (dinners - drinks - vouchers, ect.) and build a list individually ? why is it only available as a bundle now ? will it ever become available as one product ? am I late to the party :-( just trying to see if this would be a good fit with one of my many portals such as this: http://localmiamiguide.com Thanks

Woah! I'm really enjoying the template/theme of this site. It's simple, yet effective. A lot of times it's very hard to get that "perfect balance" between user friendliness and visual appeal. I must say you've done a very good job with this. Also, the blog loads super quick for me on Firefox. Superb Blog!

Hey Mike / Daniel How does this integrate with WooCommerce if at all? I'm guessing it's an either/or given that both have their own shopping carts. Does WooCommerce have PayPal adaptive payments? Thanks PS Daniel - could you get back to me re my email from last week. Cheers.

How do I purchase the plugin Mike? I can't find it on your website.

Hi, you mentioned in the description above that the base plugin is free on wordpress.com. I've done a few searches there and cannot find it. Is there still a free version being offered. I'd like to test it with our theme to make sure it works. Great plugin & extras - will definitely support if it works with our theme! Thanks!

Mike, What your saying is we would have to buy the Developer package even though we have it through Profit Marketer at the 50%. Will the developer package include the Social Deals Engine Plugin or is that a separate purchase through the Warrior Forum? What's happening with Profit Marketer? After you left we were getting weekly updates via email and that has since stopped.

Dave

Has it launced? Where can I purchase?

will this plugin able to work together with other wpsocial plugin like social review engine? for example: when customer purchase and give a review for a product deal, he/she will get additional discount.

It's got to be noon somewhere! Counting the minutes on this one :)

Wow Mike! This is an awesome plug-in and a must have for anyone wishing to set up a daily deal site. Amazon recently came out with Amazon Local Associate Program offering daily deals and as an associate we all can make a little money. Watch out Groupon. I'm sure your plug-in is going to be far superior to the new Azon Local by Edwin. Your time is impecable. Keep up the great work.

Hi Mike. What time will the plugin be released ?? would it be necessary the Social Review Theme or Can I use the plugin with any other theme?

This looks awesome! I just spent $197 on a piece of software that does something similar, but not quite this much. Literally, 5 minutes after I purchased that software your post showed up in my newsfeed. Question: Can we build a list doing this with offline businesses or is the list building only for CPA/affiliate offer.

mike

The only thing I don't see is how much it will cost. Is that on another page somewhere?

Mike, is Social Deals Engine part of the Developer Bundle? If we buy the Developer Bundle can we use it on client sites? Thanks, Mike

Hi Mike, what if you have a product on Amazon, how does the discount influence on the price here ? rgds Leo

Hi Mike, Like all your products, this looks really, really good. Quick question. Will it work inside a Facebook tab? Thanks, Scott.

Deacon

This is really cool but I still don't understand where the deals come from. I know you can get CPA offers and affiliate products from different networks, but these product show a discount from the regular price. Do you make these up or are they actual deals from the network? db

No, that Woo Extension will not work with the Social Deals Engine. You can allow vendors to add their own products using the Advanced Access Manager plugin and you can then also use the PayPal Adaptive Payments plugin to manage split payments automatically. We are working on a solution for this, but it might be awhile before it is released. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

Yes, you can do what you are looking to do with the plugin. We only released this previously in limited fashion in a bundle. As of next week this will change when we release the new version of the plugin individually with a lot of new Extensions. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

We are working on WooCommerce integration right now and it is one of our main focuses at the moment. Right now I do not know of any Extension which allows WooCommerce to do PayPal Adaptive Payments, but I know a few developers have been working on some based on some forum chatter I have seen. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

The Social Deals Engine is getting a huge upgrade and due to how we want it developed going forward, we are not allowing anyone to buy it until the upgrade is complete. We are reformatting the backend of the plugin to work hand in hand with WooCommerce to make it even more flexible and extendable than it already is. We are also working on a Voucher Extension for it as well. I would say it will be 2-3 weeks until it is available for sale here on WPSocial.com. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

It is going to be on Wordpress.org. It isn't yet. It will be in 7-10 days or so. Be advised though, our current Special Offer expires tomorrow at 12:00 Noon Eastern Standard Time and after that we will only be selling this package as individual Extensions and at a much higher price point. In fact, some of our listed extensions will cost as much or more than this total offer does. We also have a 60 Day Money Back Guarantee on all Products on this site. No Questions Asked. Mike

Mike Johnson

Thank you. We really appreciate it. Mike

The plugin allows you to use multiple scarcity features. You can set Deals for a Limited Time, you can set deals to only be available for a specific number of purchases, or use both of those features together. Mike

If you are a lifetime member of Profit Marketer then you should have already received the emails I sent previously adding you into the Membership here at WPSocial.com. If you haven't, then submit a support ticket and we will get you taken care of. If you are a Profit Marketer Monthly Member, the best I can offer is a 50% discount on your purchase here at WP Social and that coupon code was already sent out via email as well. As for Profit Marketer. I have no idea what is happening with it as I am no longer involved there at all. All the WP Social Plugins were supposed to be removed from Profit Marketer as of today. If not, then there could be additional problems. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

Yes, this was built to integrate with all of our Plugins. If you look at the Demo, the Social Review Engine and Social Review Theme are being used there. Mike

Mike Johnson

Thanks Art! Daniel and I both appreciate it. Mike

You can use this plugin with any theme. It will be launched today May 1st at 12:00 PM EST (noon). Mike

Mike Johnson

Yes you can build a list with this automatically for every offer you run as it is integrated into the purchase process even more than it is for doing CPA/ Affiliate Offers. Buyers are automatically added to your optin cycle when they purchase unless they elect not to be. This depends on how you select to set it up in the plugin Admin settings. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

No, that will be released along with the plugin tomorrow. I can tell you this though, it will be a crazy low price compared to what it took to develop it. The offer during the launch will last 7 days only and then the price will be going up quite a bit. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

Yes, and it will be available to Developer Bundle Buyers tomorrow. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

Yes, I think I left that out of the writeup above. It is completely responsive built on the Twitter Bootstrap Framework. It will be released tomorrow at noon (12:00 PM EST). Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

You have to manage that manually right now. That being said it is on the list for extensions for us to develop for the plugin. An Amazon Deals Extension for Affiliates. Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

Yes. With both the Social Review Theme and the Fan Page Builder you can add deals to any Facebook Tab. You can also use any other Wordpress to Facebook tools available online but we don't like to talk about those. :) Thanks Scott! Mike

Mike Johnson
Mike Johnson

These are made up and input from us for Demo purposes. You don't have to show a discount using the plugin if you don't want to. You can use deals and special offers from any Network and use them on your blog, you can run your own deals with your own products, or you can enlist Businesses or Partners to promote offers/ deals through your site. There are no limits with it. Mike

This sounds like a real winner. Can't wait to get this and wishing your team lots of success! JC

Thanks, and recommendations until then? I have a few clients that are ready to run deals. I will use your Plugin once it's available to buy because of the unique social medial features.

Mike I haven't seen your fanpage builder, sure it's a nice product I have social review and am interested in this product, but can I copy an Ad and post it in my newsfeed and will it be mobile responsive. Facebook tabs are pretty useless.

Scott

That's great Mike, I've got Fan Page Builder, it rocks! Scott.

Yes it will be responsive because you will be using facebook's responsive technology. It won't use our's. Responsiveness doesn't work that way. The responsiveness is built into the plugin much like it is built into our Social Review Theme. That doesn't automatically copy over to other sites unless it is iFramed like what is done when you add content to a Facebook Fan Page Tab via Wordpress using the Fan Page Builder. Mike Mike
