I had the pleasure to speak at the Dublin WordPress Meetup in March 2018. The presentation title was “How to Sell A-N-Y-T-H-I-N-G with WordPress + WooCommerce”, aimed at both beginners and more advanced designers.
Some of those who are only starting with WordPress didn’t know you can transform ANY WordPress install into an Ecommerce website in a matter of minutes.
Those who are pretty familiar with it, on the other end, they’re maybe entrepreneurs who want to set up a Marketplace, a Membership site, a Classified Ads platform or implement some of those Ecommerce features only Amazon and Ebay seem to be able to code with their million dollar budgets.
Well, either way, we can forget about custom- and hand-coding ecommerce websites from scratch… The era of €20,000 and above custom websites is over.
If you’re a beginner or an advanced WordPress developer – WooCommerce can help you fulfill your goals!
In this meetup, I taught how to:
– Turn ANY WordPress website into an Ecommerce platform ready to sell and receive payments in 15 minutes… (DEMO!)
– How to boost WooCommerce sales by implementing some of the Amazon/Ebay conversion rate optimisation “tricks”
