Making Money And Having Fun Selling WordPress Themes

A session at WordCamp San Francisco 2011

Saturday 13th August, 2011

11:15am to 12:00pm (PST)

You could say that 2010 was the best year yet for WordPress themes — a banner year in an already explosive marketplace. Entire companies are building their lives and businesses around selling themes, and they’ve flourished along with amazing growth of WordPress as a platform.

In 2011 the commercial themes landscape is even more innovative, fun, and crowded than ever. With this panel we’ll meet three industry leaders and discuss their experiences selling themes, providing customer support, and growing their theme business in these fast and
furious times.

The format will be a Q and A between the moderator and the panelists, but we’ll be sure to leave plenty of time for you to ask your own questions.
