How to make a living as a WordPress developer

Image for post

I have been working on putting together a course on how to actually make a living as a WordPress developer, instead of simply how to build a custom theme. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram then you have seen some of my progress. The course is nearly completed and in the spirit of the holidays I wanted to make it available for pre-order with some special bonuses.

So what is this course?

There are tons of resources available for you to learn how to develop a custom WordPress theme, but nearly all of them leave out the most important part — how to actually get clients. What is the point of being able to build for the most popular platform in the world if you don’t know how to find and secure clients who will pay you for your skills.

Include in this course you will receive

  • Over 25 videos explaining the business side of things and the entire process of building a custom WordPress theme
  • An ebook that includes all of the business related content
  • Audio versions of each lesson in the course
  • All design files used in the course
  • All code from the course
  • Pre-order bonus: A 30 minute consulting call with me
  • Pre-order bonus: 50% discount off of the course

In this course I skip all the high level fluff and get right into the nitty gritty of finding and securing clients in the real world. We aren’t building some lame corporate theme, but rather building a site for a restaurant that includes a custom home page along with menu and location functionality. When you complete this course you will have an entire skill set, and potential client base, to start making a living developing custom WordPress themes.
