Services For WordPress Makers
As well as running LayerWP, I’m a freelance writer for WordPress themes, plugins, and services. Care to know more?
Writing For Potential Customers.
As a consumer of WordPress themes/plugins .etc, I’m uniquely positioned to offer content that appeals to other consumers.
I’m the guy you’re pitching your new theme/plugin to; with that in mind, I know what I’d look for if I were thinking of purchasing a WordPress product.
Not cookie-cutter articles that are a dime a dozen, you know the type, you’ve only got to search the web to see them in action.
I write for users, the very people visiting your website and thinking of buying your product, I write for them.
Whenever I write for a theme maker or plugin developer, I always ask for a copy of the product in question. Why?
Here are a few reasons:
- How can you write objectively about something you don’t know about?
- Testing a theme/plugin gives me ideas, ideas that can lead to more useful content.
- Posts that you’ve never thought about, as you don’t have the might not have the mindset of a consumer. (Sorry!)
Remember, as I’ve mentioned already, I’m a user, the very person your product could appeal to, so I write as if I was visiting your website, what would I look for, what value can I give myself as a potentially interested buyer?
So What Can I Offer?
I’m an objective beast at heart; if you’d like me to review your theme for another blog, no problem. I only offer honest reviews, so if your product is faulty or has issues, I will tell you.
As I ask for a copy of the product for writing content, I can often spot new ways to use a theme/plugin, hell even think of a series of posts for them. Not always you understand, it depends on the product.
I see a lot of overly complicated theme/plugin documentation; while I can’t write the coding elements (as I’m not a coder), I can create documentation that’s easy to understand.
While I can’t do the fancy graphics for video content for YouTube or your own hosted videos, I can narrate and offer walkthroughs, setup guides, and more. I have a calming voice, according to one or two people!
Are you looking to give your freemium product an overhaul on WordPress.org? As a consumer, I can write a description with users in mind.
