A: Creating a moat around your business

Goals:

-Become an expert in wordpress programming language, the internals of the CMS, and Plugin Development.

-Write clean, bug free code.

-Get my foot into the door with companies that are hiring programmers with extensive experience building wordpress plugins.

B: The first step is learning how to program in PHP. It’s super simple. But once you get the hang of it, developing plugins becomes difficult. The trick is learning how to use the WordPress API. It’s super simple once you familiarize yourself with it. The next hardest part is learning object oriented programming. It’s hard because it takes time to build up your vocabulary of programming terms. Once you learn how to speak OOP, you’ll fall in love with it. It makes writing code easier/cleaner/simpler/faster. With these skills, you can start building your own plugins. And that’s where the money is. There are so many plugins on the market right now, but not many developers who know how to develop them. You can charge $200-$500 for one plugin. That’s $2000-$5000 per month for one plugin. Not bad! Now you can work less and make more money. And you can do it all from home, on your own schedule. You can write plugins whenever you want without having to ask for permission or needing someone else’s approval. So there you go, one way to earn $2000-$5000 per month with just one plugin! Now you’re making money while you sleep, while you work on other projects, or while you take a small break from coding. Just make sure to make your plugin easy to use and visually appealing. And make sure it solves a problem people have with Wordpress websites. Because if they don’t need it, they won’t buy it!
