Zingtree WordPress Plug-in for Interactive Decision Trees


Everyone loves WordPress! The top free blogging service out there, even our own Zingtree Blog is powered by the publishing powerhouse, which is why we made sure that your Zingtrees can become a seamless part of your site through WordPress. That’s right, you can now easily embed your decision trees onto a WordPress page for perfect customer-facing interaction and expert question-and-answer flow.

The short code looks like this:
[zingtree id="164166011"]

Or you can customize with a button that will immediately take the user to whichever node you’d like. Here’s an example of a persistent button we titled “restart” on every page that goes to the top of the tree at node #1:
[zingtree id="164166011" persist_names="Restart" persist_node_ids="1"]

Here’s another example of the Pet Rock demo embedded in this page, with a persistent Submit Ticket and Search buttons:

More Predictable Pricing



It’s always a challenge to find a fair and reasonable pricing structure for your products or services. With Zingtree, we had to do some serious brainstorming as there’s a lot of moving pieces. We wanted to have a low cost entry point for individuals and students, and a scaling that decreases the price as you use Zingtree more. This structure allows you (the author(s)) to dig into the nuts and bolts of trees; play with nodes, pathways to resolutions, and utilize the design as much as possible. Only when you launch or deploy your tree will you be charged by usage.

Our pricing works by counting end-user sessions, and you only get charged if someone clicks a button in your tree. It doesn’t matter if it’s one click, or 100, the cost is the same. You can think of this as “interactions” if you prefer. Since most of our customers have a good handle on the number of times a tree would be seen, we figured this would be the best way to avoid unpredictable charges.

The Starter Plan is great for the one-off decision tree, or just to get a feel for Zingtree itself. You can easily move between plans as your usage goes up and down. Whenever you sign up for a more advanced plan, you instantly get session credits, which never expire.

We did our best to create a reasonable pricing plan and hope that you feel so too. If you have questions about this structure or need clarification on the terms, please reach out and let us know.
