Show Notes

Key Takeaways

  • For Sara, word of mouth is the biggest influence for purchase decisions, including from Slack and Facebook group discussions.
  • Screencasts to show off a premium WordPress product’s admin is a big help.
  • Step by step documentation is preferred for onboarding.
  • As an agency, Sara strives to remove as many hurdles for her clients as possible, including purchasing WordPress products and activating their licenses.
  • There should be an easier way to hand off licenses purchased by agencies to their clients down the road.
  • Predictable annual subscription costs keep things simple.
  • Most premium plugins don’t seem overpriced for Sara’s B2B client projects.
