OPTION 1 “Grow your WooCommerce Business by Growing your Clients Businesses”
For Shop Owners
Ned Dwyer

391c867504fde9e5b389784ff0b2f456This workshop will involve working through ways you can help your WooCommerce customers build their businesses online, and how this can translate to more revenue for your business. We’ll talk through how to approach your customers about value-add services, low-hanging fruit in most eCommerce setups, and how you as a developer can assist your customers from the perspective of growth marketing.

OPTION 2 “Do more with WooCommerce”
For Developers
Brian Richards

c55f13e14ac99ca00df764d2e4f13013In this workshop we’ll explore how simple it can be for developers to create a tailored WooCommerce experience that can support a myriad of needs. Specifically we’ll review a number of customizations I created for WPSessions.com which allow me to run an access-controlled site that sells both individual products and annual memberships. We’ll look at some of the simpler modifications, like custom templating, all the way through to advanced (but still simple!) custom extensions for restricting site access to varying levels of paying customers.

For the clever sales and marketing people in attendance, we’ll also look at how I track prospect movement throughout the site prior to purchase in order to optimize the site to improve sales. There will be ample time for questions, too, so that you can figure out the best way to bend WooCommerce to your own (or your client) needs.

See y’all next week!

  1. OPTION 1 “Grow your WooCommerce Business…” says it’s for shop owners, but it sure reads like it’s for developers. Which is it?

    1. Hey Leon,

      This workshop is all about setting up your shop for success. While it is focusing on WooCommerce setup the content will be applicable and done in such a way that it will be useful for devs or shop owners managing their WooCommerce site.
