    Chris Bryant: WordPress Plugin Development for Developers and Business Owners

    WordCamp Sydney 2018Speaker: Chris Bryant

    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:

    For Business Owners

    Why your website company might be the worst people to make your plugin.
    What makes a good WordPress plugin?
    Setting expectations – What do you get for your money when you buy that $15 plugin?
    Why does the plugin you bought not work as expected?
    Why is it so expensive to have one system talk to another and what can I do about it?
    The role of quality, accuracy and price in choosing a plugin developer.
    For Web Developers

    What happened when we were overloaded with support requests.
    How the smallest Git almost crushed us.
    The time we were told our plugin was about to be removed.
    How to build a successful business with WordPress plugins.
    Case Studies
    We’ll also cover a broad range of case studies which will provide valuable insights to both business owners and developers, including:

    The rarer one – $10,000 plugin
    The everyday gem – $500 plugin
    The big win – increasing plugin value with incremental improvement
    The complex one – Enterprise financial integration & risk management
