Submit your WordPress product to the unoffical WordPress directory!
Looking to market your WordPress product/service? Roll up, roll up, there is no better place than a listing on LayerWP. What are you waiting for? 👇
Geting noticed isn't easy
It’s hard getting exposure for your WordPress product, whether it’s a theme, plugin, a new course, E-book, or Web Hosting. It’s tough, you can approach countless blogs to promote your product, reach out via email, and see what happens.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t do that, what I am saying is LayerWP is an option to add to your marketing arsenal.
My unofficial WordPress directory is now accepting submissions, so those of you with themes, plugins, courses etc., if you need somewhere to publish information about your wares, you’ve just found the place to do so.
What I’m offering
I’m not reinventing the wheel here, this isn’t going to take over the WordPress.org directory! I’ve listened to countless developers all say the same thing, it’s ridiculously hard to get noticed. Whether it’s a new WordPress product or an existing one that needs some love.
The whole point of the unofficial WordPress directory is to give a platform to indie developers, course creators, Web Hosts and more, to showcase their products to an audience of potential buyers, without costing the earth.
Your listing, your shot at attracting users
Your very own listing in the unofficial WordPress directory, complete with information about your product. What it can do, what it offers, and how it can help a user.
Another shot at the SERPs
Already created content about your product? Want another slice in the SERPs (Search Engine Results Page)? Why not be different, try something new, think of a listing on LayerWP as another slice of the SEO pie.
No limit on how much you can write
I don’t believe in restricting people, full stop. If you’d like to write something lengthy about your product, please by all means do. In fact, the only rule I have in force is, the listing needs to be a minimum of 300 words.
Keep it human
Nobody likes being sold to, so remember, keep your listing on point. Do you want my advice? Be human about it, talk about your product, what it can offer. Don’t try to game the search engines by keyword stuffing, be honest and open.
The unofficial WordPress directory FAQ
You’ve probably got questions, I’ve got some answers for you.
Good question, I toyed with this a lot. Obviously, I need to make something out of it to cover costs etc. Totally free products, like themes, plugins, and such, as long as they are free, and not freemium, there is no cost.
Products that have a premium version available, and any product that costs to purchase it, I’m charging £35.00. This is a one off cost, no annual subscriptions, one payment and that’s it.
- WordPress themes
- WordPress plugins
- Web Hosting
- Tools for development
- E-Books, for learning
All entries will be shared on my Twitter account currently at 2.2k in followers, with the primary audience being WordPress, and tech related.
I’m also going to offer a series of blog posts as updates, think along the lines of “this week in the unofficial WordPress directory”, listing the latest entries. It’s great for me, more content, and an excellent way to highlight your product.
All blog posts will have the latest products added to the base of them, to highlight the directory and draw people in.
I’ll also be writing about the progress of the WordPress directory, how it’s shaping up, and if I see something of interest in a submission, I’m going to talk about it!
Yes, of course you can. I understand a lot of WordPress product companies don’t like offering discounts, and some do. So, if you’d like to offer a discount, by all means do.
All I would ask is that you keep the discount code (if applicable) to be relevant to my site, think: LYR10AB, something like that. But obviously not that one, that would be silly.
I’d expect nothing less, you need to know if this is working for you, sure add tracking links to see how much of an impact a listing on LayerWP has had.
That is an excellent question. I’m not going to lie, if you have an affiliate system in place, I’d ask to become a member, and I WILL, use affiliate links.
I’ve kept the listing charge low for a reason. Furthermore, I don’t want to restrict you from promoting your product, as I understand budgets and times are hard.
If your product has an affiliate system, I’ll use them as a way to generate future income over time. If you don’t have an affiliate system, that’s fine, I don’t expect everyone to have one!
Of course, I’m all about building relationships with developers and product owners. If you need to make a change to your listing, all you have to do is email me, and I’ll get it sorted for you. No problem.
Very simple, use the form! You can upload a Google doc, or whatever you need. If you’d like to write your article inside the form, you can.
I’m trying to keep this as simple as possible for all, remember if you make a mistake, email me and I can rectify it for you!
I’ll aim to get it done in 48 hours, if for whatever reason there’s a delay, I will of course keep you informed via email.
Of course, if you’d like to take a look at how it all works, feel free to kick the tires here.
Ready to submit your product?
Like what you’ve heard? Ready to submit your WordPress product, and be a part of something a little different?
Awesome! It’s great to have you on board, and I, for one, am looking forward to working on the directory in earnest. All you have to do is fill in the form, make a payment, get your content over to me, and we’re good to go.
Once your listing is live, I’ll let you know via email or Twitter, I’ll share the heck out of it, and I’d expect you to do the same as well :).
