  • Pricing WordPress products

    WordCamp Italy (Italia) 2022Speaker: James Baldacchino

    December 18, 2022 — Pricing strategy is one of the most under-rated marketing tools! It’s the most direct path to improving your revenues, and getting it right makes the whole difference between a successful WordPress business and one which cannot deliver sustainable income in the long term. Beyond that, it’s also a great positioning tool: arguably more impactful than great branding!

    In this talk, I’ll go into all the ways to look at pricing, based on best practices specific to WordPress businesses, including:

    How to tier your product
    Should you do lifetime pricing?
    How do you set your pricing levels?
    How often should you test/change your pricing?
    What about your competitors’ pricing?
    Pricing as a positioning tool
    Special Offers, Sales and Black Friday
    Pricing and Renewals

  • Un nuovo inizio dopo i quaranta: come affrontare nuove sfide

    WordCamp Italy (Italia) 2022Speaker: Francesca Marano

    December 18, 2022 — Affrontare qualcosa di nuovo, come contribuire a WordPress o fare un cambiamento di carriera, non è sempre facile per le persone oltre una certa età. Parlo per esperienza! Ho iniziato a contribuire al progetto globale di WordPress nel 2015 all’età di 41 anni senza avere esperienze precedenti con progetti Open Source. All’età di 45 anni, sono stata la co-lead di due release major di WordPress.org. E a 47 anni, ho iniziato una nuova carriera con XWP.

    All’inizio è terrificante, soprattutto in un mondo che richiede ai giovani lauree, master, specializzazioni, e tirocini. Tuttavia, ho capito che anche le competenze della “scuola della vita”, come la gestione di progetti e team in settori molto diversi tra di loro o l’agenda di una famiglia, sono preziose.

    In questo talk, condividerò ciò che ho imparato negli ultimi dieci anni, quando ho iniziato a dare un’orientamento diverso alla mia vita, in una fase considerata relativamente avanzata soprattutto nel settore tech.
    Spero che i questi suggerimenti aiuteranno le persone in situazioni simili a sapere cosa aspettarsi lungo il percorso e le incoraggeranno ad affrontare la loro prossima sfida.

  • Esteban Grandal: WP&Emprendimiento: creación rápida de prototipos para validar modelos de negocio

    WordCamp Galicia 2021Speaker: Esteban Grandal

    October 2, 2021 — La creación de aplicaciones web para proyectos innovadores requiere de la creación ágil y rápida de prototipos funcionales. Es importante poder usar lo que se está desarrollando, no solo el concepto ni el diseño de pantallas. Solo con el uso y la observación de diferentes usuarios se pueden crear productos de valor que se puedan vender en el mercado.

    La realización de este proceso con aplicaciones desarrolladas a medida, requiere normalmente de un amplio equipo, reuniones de muchas personas, tiempos de desarrollo largos, modificaciones de código… y sobre todo mucha inversión simplemente para «probar».

    WordPress es un framework que ofrece un entorno validado, muchas posibilidades de ampliar funcionalidades a bajo coste y generar modelos de aplicaciones muy probados de cara a crear posteriormente proyectos a medida y escalables, pero ya con ventas, funcionalidades y conocimientos validados. En este taller compartiré mi experiencia con este tipo de proyectos, ventajas y desventajas (que también las hay)
