November 21, 2018 — How to deliver and receive success and excellence
This talk will focus on the success and failures from building a 6 figure plugin sales business.
Have you ever made a plugin, and asked yourself what on earth you were thinking?
Or did you buy a plugin and it had no end of problems, but the developers weren’t supportive?
Some plugins are great, work seamlessly with your website, and deliver on what they promised.
Some are really, really bad. Just awful. Refund me now! Your website stops working, there are constant problems, the plugin developer is useless.
Chris Bryant has had some major plugin failures, and some great successes over the past 10 years, in his web development firm.
In this non technical talk, Chris will share his successes and failures with making plugins over the past decade. Topics to cover include:
