First financial report

As part of our ongoing promise of full transparency and to give others insight into running a WordPress-related business, Emil and I want to share our initial financial report.

Currently, we’re both working on this part time and have other full-time jobs that we perform. Eventually, we’d like to turn this into a full-time business for the both of us. We have some exciting things in the pipeline that will be a natural extension of a review service that focuses on standards and quality. More on that later.

Without further ado, our current financial report: As of a few days ago, the business has brought in $8,074.

If you’re doing the math, that’s roughly $2,000/month. For part-time work, that’s not bad. However, we want to both be able to make a comfortable living by providing this service within the WordPress ecosystem, so we still have a ways to go. So far, we’re off to a pretty good start.

The best thing you can do to help out with this is spread the word about our service. We’re now reviewing both plugins and themes.

  1. That isn’t bad going since you’re in early startup phase. Keep up the good work; it’s a service I’d definitely use if I ever decide to develop a theme.

  2. Not bad at all. Not many people go for a theme review as most are not even aware of it, but when they do, you are the best folks they should ask for. Good luck 🙂

    1. Almost all new reviews are delivered by Word-of-mouth. And you are absolutely right, folks still don’t know about us.

      Last week our marketing campaign for Envato Studio was approved just to notify Theme Forest authors about this service.

      1. Hi Emil!

        Good to know that. I too have plans to sell my themes on big marketplaces like Themeforest. I learned a lot from you guys to begin developing with WordPress—I’m still in the midway. Hope will get my work reviewed by you guys someday.

        Cheers!

  3. You said about accepting plugins for review, but I don’t see any mentions on other pages – no details, no prices, nothing.
    could you please clarify this thing?

    1. We’re doing them on a per-plugin basis right now to get a good feel for how we should price them. Drop us a line to get a quote.

      Soon, we should have a more official plugin page once we’ve decided on their pricing structure. I think we’re pretty close to getting this figured out.

    1. Definitely! Also, another advantage is to minimize support.

      The main takeaway for us is to know that we’re able to sell service in our community as they’re harder to describe and you can’t really see or demo anything.
