WordPress is free! It does astounding things out of the box. But it doesn't do everything. Therein lies the opportunity. Tons of people are making serious money with WordPress, why aren't you? In this session, each panelist will cover a core business opportunity with WordPress: Customization Services, Design Products & Premium Themes, Premium Plugins, Hosting Services and Content Properties. I'll share how Peter & I grossed close to a million in revenue last year from WordPress related design and development services with the help of a small team of talented freelancers. We'll explore the approach that Brandon, the #1 premium theme seller in North America, used to gross $250k in the last year (not bad for one dude). There are no shortages of opportunity. Get insight into how you can be successful from someone in each of these categories who is killing it and making real money (without working for Automattic).
