This week, you may have noticed a lot of WooCommerce on my site and my social shares. More so than usual. They’ve been pretty much been everywhere, all the time.
The reason? I’ll be spending a good part of this week immersed in some form of WooCommerce via WooConf. In fact, as you read this, chances are that is where I am. I announced my #WeekofWoo last Sunday, with a day-by-day play of what I would be doing in the Woo world.
So what’s up with this Woo thing, Bob?
It goes all the way back to April 25, 2009, when I bought my first Woo theme. In fact, I bought two Woo themes. Seven months later, I purchased three more. This was about a year after I had started using WordPress and I never looked back.
Because of the experience I had with WooThemes, when they released WooCommerce in 2011, I was intrigued. I installed it. I played with it. I thought Mmmmm, this just might be something.
And it was.
Since then, WooCommerce has always been a part of BobWP in one way or another. And I’ve sold a lot of different stuff using WooCommerce:
- WordPress site design
- WordPress site packages
- WordPress training
- WordPress support
- WordPress coaching
- Workshop tickets
- Workshop sponsorships
- Sponsored posts
- Podcast sponsorships
After looking at this list, I thought it might be nice if I shared some posts I have related to selling with WooCommerce, so here you go.
Of course, there are many more so feel free to peruse all our posts on WooCommerce.
And to answer that question. Why Woo? Well, it’s just a damn good plugin. That’s why.
