quick-look-screenshotThere are literally thousands of Joomla! extensions and templates available online. How will users find yours?

Quick Looks are a way for you as a developer to place your product in front of the Joomla! audience.

What you will get:

A one-page Quick Look listing for your product

  • A brief introduction about the product
  • Up to 6 screenshots (580px wide + 800px wide lightbox version)
  • Captions on all images
  • Up to 8 standout features for your product (bullet points)
  • Up to 3 text links back to your site (dofollow!)
  • Here's an example Quick Look post.

    Reach thousands of Joomla! users

    A Quick Look will put your product in front of thousands of Joomla! users, many of which are willing to spend their money on good quality products. The Quick Look listing will be promoted on the blog (sidebar), at least three times on Twitter during different timezones (2000+ followers) and on the JoomlaBlogger Facebook page. The Quick Look might also be mentioned in my weekly newsletter (1000+ subscribers). All in all, you will get a lot of exposure!

    All this for a one-time fee of USD 100.
    Payment is done via Paypal.


    • The payment is a one-time fee. Payment is done via Paypal.
    • The Quick Look post will stay at the blog as long as the product is valid as described in the post. Posts about discontinued products or services may be removed by the blog owner.
    • Changes to more than screenshot or two or simple text changes will be considered a new listing.

    How to book a Quick Look listing

    To produce your Quick Look listing, I'll need the following elements from you:

    • A brief introduction about the product
    • One image to be used as the main illustration (in listing pages and in the intro text).
    • Up to 6 screenshots (580px wide + 800px wide lightbox version)
    • One line captions for each screenshot
    • Up to 8 standout features for your product (bullet points)
    • Up to 3 text links back to your site (dofollow!).
    • Here's an example Quick Look post.
    • Provide your Paypal email address in the email.

    Some notes on how to make your Quick Look more successful:

    • Make sure to include screenshots that are clear and shows the inner workings of the system. Things that you would need to buy the product to see. The point of a Quick Look is to give an inside look at a product or service.
    • Close-ups of front end elements are good.
    • Admin panels showing key features and unique selling points also work well.

    JoomlaBlogger 1 year celebrationIndeed, what a ride!

    I just realized that two days ago, it was one year since I published the first post on this blog.

    Since then I've published over 200 posts about Joomla and SEO. And it wouldn't have happened without the support of a very special person: YOU!

    I want to thank you for reading my blog, following my newsletter and Tweets.
    I want to thank you for using Joomla.
    And I really hope to interact with you as a reader and Joomla user in the future.

    I've come to know a lot of people because of this blog. Online, first and foremost. But soon I will have the opportunity to meet a lot of these amazing people in person, at the J! and Beyond conference in Wiesbaden, Germany. I'm really look forward to seeing you guys. To talk shop. To hang out. To explore the diverse aspects of German drinking culture ;)

    Stay tuned - and don't hesitate to send me your suggestions for topics to explore on this blog. Comment on the posts and interact with other users. Sharing is what makes a vibrant Joomla! community.

    Again - thank you reading and sharing!


    gnumla-logoAs you know, the Joomla community is truly international. Most of the information available is written in English, though. For this reason, I'm very happy to announce that starting today, selected JoomlaBlogger articles will be published in Spanish. Not on this blog, but over at www.gnumla.com.

    My Spanish friends approached me a while ago about republishing my articles in Spanish. After some back-and-forth I agreed - and I'm happy with the result.

    The old server had an old version of MySQL, and the same goes for PHP. So it was about time I switched.
