Manage live event, conference, and news blogs from your WordPress dashboard.

Live blogging bridges the gap between traditional blogs and social networking tools, enabling reader engagement with long form content during breaking news, developing stories, and live events. When comparing page views, LiveGuardian.co.uk says live blogs outperformed its conventional articles by 235% and image galleries by 219%, demonstrating the allure of real-time content for readers.

LivePress allows bloggers and journalists to share event, conference, and news updates with their readers in realtime from their WordPress sites. Live blog posts are preserved after an event is over, increasing the content’s long term traffic and SEO value. Extensive Twitter integration makes cross posting and distribution of live blog updates easy and extensive editorial tools empower publishers to capture the whole story right from their WordPress dashboard.

How is LivePress different from other live blogging solutions?

Most live blogging applications have architectural flaws that add technical complexity, hinder usability, and make true WordPress integration difficult, if not impossible. LivePress is a live blogging solution that was built with usability, extendability, and performance in mind.

LivePress maintains the look and feel of your content, reduces the server workload resulting from live blog traffic, and enables powerful reader engagement on your site, keeping your audience coming back for more. LivePress is built for WordPress — integration is as simple as installing the plug-in and making a few theme tweaks. The live blogging user interface blends seamlessly with WordPress’s native WSIWYG editor, reducing the learning curve for publishers.

How does LivePress’s pricing compare to other live blogging software?

LivePress’s ongoing costs are mostly on the server end since we finance and maintain the hardware that make instant updates and scalable live blogging possible on your site. Our pricing packages reflect this. LivePress offers competitive pricing packages for customers ranging from individual bloggers to enterprise publishers based on site traffic, quantity of live blog updates, and the number of sites using LivePress.

We don’t believe live blogging success should come with sticker shock. Most of our competitors charge expensive overage fees for exceeding anticipated reader traffic or engagement with live blog posts. Instead, we work with you to find a plan that suits your site’s growing needs, allowing you to upgrade to a new plan at any time without penalty.

LivePress unlocks the potential of live blogging for publishers of all sizes for the first time, providing a full service solution that is customizable, scalable, and fully integrated with WordPress, the world’s most popular content management system. Explore LivePress features today and find the live blogging plan that’s right for your site.
