Nearly 6 months ago, we launched Experts Corner – Round I and received a wonderful response from our community and partners. The experts have had a chance to share some of their most valuable tips for plugin and theme businesses about how to grow sales with subscriptions, optimize conversion rates, support customers, and more advanced topics like scaling your team. We’re now super excited to announce we’re stepping it up even further with 🎉 Experts Corner – Round II 🎉
Before we get into Round II, here’s a recap of the extensive topics covered in Round I:
- Biggest Lesson You’ve Learned Selling WordPress Plugins and Themes

- Selling Subscriptions
- Refunds and Money Back Guarantees
- Renewals Discount Best Practices
- Offering Coupons & Seasonal Discounts

- Affiliate Program Best Practices

As an avid educator, my goal has always been to share the best insight from folks you would normally meet at WordCamps and other conferences. Now, with coronavirus affecting all our businesses and lives, I’ve seen my role as even more important because finding valuable information online about how to grow your digital product business is even harder.
Expanding the Knowledge, Even Further!
This is why we’re back with Experts Corner Round II, and we’re bringing new experts into the mix, along with a ton of new topics covering every aspect of selling plugins and themes.

Zee Hazan – Our New Head of Video Content
My objective at Freemius has been to build the fundamentals of our video content efforts, and with the help of the team, I think we did a pretty good job 🙂
I recently received a job opportunity that is better suited for my skills, which I couldn’t say no to, so we now have an amazing new Head of Video Content taking the reins, Zee Hazan, who is well prepared to continue my legacy at Freemius 😉
I hope you’ve enjoyed learning from me, and I wish you all the best in using your new knowledge to empower your business growth! Here’s a little bit about Zee, so you can get to know him.
