Next Steps

You now have all the information needed to get started with Freemius!

It’s time for action: Open an account if you haven’t already done so and you can start integrating. Before you know it, you’ll have the Freemius platform working with your own WordPress plugin or theme.

Let’s recap the steps for a successful integration:

  1. Open a Freemius account.
  2. Add a new plugin, theme, or bundle.
  3. Create your pricing plans.
  4. Add the auto-generated SDK snippet and the core Freemius WordPress SDK to your plugin or theme.
  5. Wrap premium only code in Freemius’ conditional logic or use special meta comments.
  6. Deploy your WordPress product to the Developer Dashboard.
  7. Release the auto-generated free/premium versions to your users.

Once your new product has been released, there are a few more things to consider that may prove useful in ensuring a successful product launch.

  • Introduce yourself to the Freemius community via the DEV Slack channel – and announce your first integration and product launch. We have special #product-launches and #upvoters-mafia channels to help get the word out and celebrate!
