ABOUT THE TALKS

Talk 1: WooCommerce Website Considerations for Beginners

WooCommerce offers an opportunity for anyone to sell anything beautifully online. This free plugin expands the scope of a website by introducing ecommerce functionality.

Ecommerce, however, comes with several challenges that may affect small businesses or individuals. These challenges are visible and are often costly, even if WooCommerce is in use.

This talk shares insight into how a beginner or early-start ecommerce store might apply WooCommerce to their advantage. It will discuss some of the potential challenges that newcomers to WooCommerce need to be aware of. The talk will also offer specific recommendations and suggestions, which every new WooCommerce store owner should consider.

Attendees will come away with proven strategies and best practices, which they can apply to their own WooCommerce storefronts.

Talk 2: How to Build your Business Blog

Right from the start of my working life with WordPress I knew I wanted to have a blog. I started with one post a month but quickly realised that wasn’t enough. It wasn’t until I kick-started my blog with a daily blogging challenge that it really began to gain traffic. Keeping a regular blog has helped me get an ongoing job writing for WPMU Dev.

My talk will cover how to start blogging, how to come up with a stream of ideas and stay consistent and how to measure your success (not all of it is in the numbers).
