Foolproof Plugin Design – PLR
Here’s a breakdown of this 9 part video series in more detail.
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
WOnce 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.
