Part 2 of How To – WordPress Plugins Video Training
With this part 2, an 8-part video course you will learn how to develop WordPress plug-ins for a fraction of the cost and how to find the right programmer.
Part 1 Course Curriculum
Video #1: Introduction to WordPress Plugin Creation
In this video, you will learn what you need to get started. You’ll also be given a quick overview of the video course itself and you’ll learn how it all works, so you know what to expect before we even get started. Once you have mastered this, you can implement this business faster.
Video #2: Research Profitable Plugin Ideas
Let’s do some quick research to show you what plugins are in demand by looking at consumer demand.
Video #3: Verify Your Idea
Now it’s time to verify that research and start spying on software developers that are already doing well. The truth is that not all plugins succeed. However, we’ll make sure to cover crucial information to help you avoid that pitfall. Once you find a profitable idea, it’s time to move to the next video.
Video #4: Dig Deeper
Once your idea is good, we’ll dig deeper. This is usually when people go and hire a programmer and tell them to clone someone else’s plugin. Big mistake. In this video, you’ll learn how to figure out ‘what’ your software
should be about by analyzing your buyer. One key tip you will learn is that software is generally created because someone has problems.
So, if you know what their problems are, then you can easily create a simple solution.
Video #5: Determining What the Software Does
Once you have figured out what your software is going to be about, or more importantly what it is going to solve, we then need to focus on “how” it is going to solve that problem. This will help you figure out EXACTLY what your software does. In other words, you’ll want to know ‘how it works’. Luckily, if you know how to create a to-do list, or even a grocery list, then creating software specifications is a very easy thing to do.
Video #6: List to Flow
Once you have created your step-by-step ‘to-do list’, you are going to need to turn it into a visual flow chart that makes sense. You are going to need to communicate with the programmer. Get this part wrong and you’ll end up getting charged more by the programmer. Programmers are very costly when they don’t understand what you’re asking.
Video #7: User Interface Design
Once you have a visual flowchart or map of what your software will do, it’s time to work on the user interface, which is what the user will see. Creating this along with the flow chart will allow you to connect the visual dots, thereby creating better specifications for the programmer to understand.
Video #8: Writing Your Specifications
Congratulations, by now you have in hand the most important part of the software creation process. Now it’s time to take everything that we have brainstormed and turn it into an official document that can be given to any programmer.
Video #9: Finding Programmers
A good WordPress programmer is going to need to know a few things. While we can elaborate further on how to find programmers later, I do want
to discuss what kind of characteristic traits and skill sets you should be looking for in your programmer. You will learn some out-of-the-box tricks that will allow you to pinpoint the right person for your WordPress plug-in.
So… with that said, grab this video series today, and learn how to turn your profitable idea into a WordPress plug-in specification.
Part 2 Course Curriculum
Video #1 – Introduction
One of the biggest complaints when it comes to hiring a programmer to develop your WordPress plug-in that I have heard over and over again is: “There are no good programmers.” Wrong. Attracting the right person takes skill and you’ll learn how.
Video #2 – Skill Set
When it comes to hiring a programmer based on skill set, we will discuss exactly what you need to be looking for.
Video #3 – Personality
While the skill set is very important, hiring based only on skill set is the wrong idea. This is where most people miss out because they think everyone thinks like them or they just want the job done right away. Take a step back, because you also need to look for the right person with the right personality. This is a great way to predict whether or not your project will succeed and how well you will be able to interact and communicate with your programmer.
Video #4 – Best Freelance Sites
There are many sites out there that you can use to find programmers and other freelancers. We will discuss the ones that we have used and have had great success with. We will also teach you how to protect yourself.
Video #5 – Research
At this point in time people normally want to go ahead and create a job post and start looking for programmers. This is a bad idea; instead, what you should be doing is researching and doing your due diligence beforehand. In this video, you’ll be shown exactly what you need to do to research different types of people in different types of job roles that have attracted the correct programmer.
Video #6 – How Much Should You Expect to Pay?
When it comes to setting your budget, most people have unrealistic budget expectations that are too low or too high. So, the question is how in the world are you supposed to know how much a WordPress plug-in is going to cost? That is something that we will tackle in this video.
Video #7 – Crafting The Job Post
Once you have done the proper research, it’s time to craft your job post. We will go through the most important things that you need to have inside your job post to ensure that you find somebody who is detail oriented. Someone who can pay attention to detail is key, no matter what the freelancing job is. You’ll learn secret tests that we use all the time to ensure that we get that type of person.
Video #8 – Search Parameters
When it comes to being proactive about your job post, you want to search for programmers that fit your needs. You’re going to learn the exact search parameters that we use to find the best programmers available.
