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 ...

The way to learn WordPress is not by contributing.

Yesterday, Matt Mullenweg gave his annual State of the Word speech, where he covered everything that has happened in WordPress this year, and what we can expect moving forward. As always, he extolled the virtues of open source and the importance of contributing. He spent several minutes on Five for the Future, a program encouraging companies who make money with WordPress to give 5% of their time to the open source project. And while I strongly recommend contributing, I don't think it's the path someone should take when they first learn.
