I did not follow Gary Vaynerchuk for a while, but recently I started to see a lot of his content again, and he is preaching how you should document your journey before you start to educate others.
I have tried a lot of time to start blogs and always failed to keep doing it, but now I’m ready again to give it a try. I feel I’m a bit late to the game this time since most media nowadays is videos, but for now, I will stay to the written and then maybe also do a video here and there.
Why a WordPress Plugin Business ?
For the past 5 years I have been making a living as a WordPress Developer selling my hours to various business as a freelancer, and while I do enjoy it, I have also always wanted to have a product I could sell instead of selling my hours.
Since I don’t have an audience I need to build that, and a great way to build an audience is if you can give something away for free. So my plan is going to be these steps
- Find out which plugin I’m going to build
- Build a free version
- Start marketing the free version to build an list/audience/users
- Build a paid version
- Make money
It all seams so simple, right? Well I don’t think so because right now I don’t even have a clue what my first (maybe only) plugin should be. So that is going to be my first task.
So I believe that over the next 3 months I’m going to find a plugin I can feel patianated about, then for the next 6 months after that I want to build an audience for the plugin and get it spread as much as possible, and then after that start to sell a paid version as well.
The challenge to myself is then:
- Make at least 2 blog post a month about the journey.
- Have generated at least 5.000 USD selling a plugin by 1th of May 2018
