New clients? Consistent income? Happy customers? However you define success for your WordPress business, this book will inspire you, help you ask the right questions and ultimately move you closer to the business you want.
There are two aspects to the book. The core is based around a set of fascinating and insightful interviews with 14 highly successful businesses in the WordPress ecosystem. Then we examine the similarities and differences between them and the trends that appeared in their answers.
You’ll see how these businesses started (50% of them all started in the exact same way), the challenges they overcame, the lessons they learned and you’ll discover the secrets of what helped them most towards their success (36% of them said the same thing).
They each offer useful advice, and armed with this knowledge you’ll learn the basics that make up a successful WordPress business.
