Reviews and Comparisons

Honest, Fair, and Helpful… Reviews at Their Best

Have you ever wondered about a new WordPress product or service, but had no idea where to get additional information about it besides on its official website?

Savvy shoppers know that they should never purchase a product without knowing first-hand whether it will do something beneficial for them. They want to know that their hard-earned cash is worth it and that the product or service being advertised is reliable. And the truth is, official websites are not apt to provide truthful analyses of their most profitable products if there is any negativity to such a review.

I mean, why would they? They are in the business of increasing revenue. And unfortunately, sometimes this quest for a profit benefits the business and not the consumer.
