    Hi guys,

    I try to keep the post really short:

    I can create WordPress plugins
    I can design a little (But i just buy themes from various sites for a small price)

    Do you guys think there is still a spot left to make money with premium wordpress themes and premium plugins? There is a quite big market, i know that, but the question is, aren't there already ENOUGH of this companies out there?

    Discuss ;)

    Thanks


    //EDIT: oh f*, posted in the wrong forums, could a mod please shove it under the money making forums?? Thanks.

    As long as word press lives and new products keep coming out (like google+, pinterest, facebook coupons etc etc) there will be market, so it depends on the demand and your effort/ money it takes for you to make those plugins.
    basically its like keyword research, to find if there is demand.

    There is always room for new service providers or businesses as long as there are buyers out there. You just have to offer something better than your competition!

    I noticed that the wordpress plugins and themes are common and every one is familiar to operate it. So don't ask for the spot, get into and bring with some fantastic ones. you must success what you think

    Read a few forums about WP design, look for what people are saying is lacking among themes currently out there. If you have the skill to create themes that fill that void, go for it.

    Another issue with themes is support; say you sell a theme for $30 bucks. You probably will get flooded with support requests; and spending your time helping a noob like me configure the theme all for the $30 bucks you got for the theme might not be worth it. Once you get known for no support, you possibly won't get that many sales either.
