Why use optimize press

12 replies
Hello All

There are several plugins available that do the same as optimize press. For example, Paper template from a warrior here and premise by copyblogger. There are more but I won't list them all.

My question is, why not use a plugin instead of a theme. You do not need a separate domain or hosting.

Just looking for your opinions

    You, have to look at what OP2 has to offer and then make the choice. Op2 has tons of uses and benefits, if they apply to your business..then invest and go for it. That's all it comes down to, seeing if a tool or product can grow our business and increase productivity.

      A bar of iron cost $5. Made into horseshoes, it's worth $12. Made into needles, it's worth $3500. Made into balance springs for watches, it's worth $300,000. Your value is determined by what you are able to make of yourself

        I would definitely recommend holding off on purchasing OP 2.0. From what I have seen there are so many moving parts in OP 2.0 and even though they probably did a lot of beta testing before launch, a lot of bugs are not going to be found until it hits the market and people put it through it's paces.

        That's why I would never purchase a new operating system the moment it was launched or an iPad or anything like that. Let the other 'suckers' weed out all the bugs for you and then go and purchase a few weeks to a month later when all the kinks have been ironed out.

    I use it because it will save you the headache of changing templates codes every time, which isn't offred by many plugins, so it's a total solution I think.

    OP2 is both a plugin and a theme.

    I bought it on launch day (which, I admit, I probably shouldn't have) and it is thankfully working fine for me and I am really amazed by all the customization you can you.

      And then there are others that buy OP because it saves them time and energy, in a way that functions very well, as a well developed product of this kind should do.

        This is my reason here.

        Why waste hours of your time searching for plugins and themes that are free or not as expensive -- and get sub par work?

        With optimize press you literally can have a squeeze page, sales page, blog, or anything you want online in just a few minutes.

        All you have to do then, is customize it to how you want, and your done.

    Now that Premise 2.5 is out with a $95 price tag as discount, I'm going with that instead of the others, plus Premise integrates nicely with WP Courseware and of course all Studio Press themes and Gravity Forms as well. Perfect for my needs. No ongoing payments or crappy license terms either.

    For me it's just a matter of ease of use. I haven't used the plugins you are referring to, but OP is very easy to operate.

    I use OP1 and OP2. They are amazing. OP2 is a game changer. I would suggest using it.
