What WordPress has to do with the Discontinued iPod

Apple has discontinued the iPod. When the iPod came out in 2001, it literally changed the world. And I don't mean literally like figuratively. I mean, it shifted how people consumed music on the go. Another thing that happened recently was WordPress lost a market share for the first time. How are these two events related? They both happened this week, of course, but what does one have to do with the other? What does this mean for freelancers? There are a lot of similarities between the iPod and WordPress. And that's what we're going to talk about. Brought to you by GoDaddy Pro. Get all of the show notes, and a written to be read article over at https://wpreview.io/49 ...

MemberPress and Asking: Is the WordPress Way the Right Way?

MemberPress made some waves this week when it was discovered that they were completely locking out users who had expired license keys. The WordPress way is you get access to the plugin, which you get to keep because it's open source, whether or not you keep paying for the license. Generally, support and updates are the things that you keep paying for. But why is this the case when virtually every other piece of software we use today is based on, "a keep paying for access" model?

Your Pricing Should Communicate Your Value

The WordPress space is cheap! But that shouldn't let you keep your prices down. Is that a fair assessment? Maybe I'm being too harsh, but anecdotally it's true. I suffer from not charging enough, in part due to being in the WordPress space too long. And I know other freelancers who have the same feelings. But that's why I'm grateful that I have good mentors in my life. And pricing what you're worth – that's what we're going to talk about today.  Brought to you by GoDaddy Pro. Get all of the show notes, and a written to be read article over at https://wpreview.io/44 ...
