I have a lot of projects going right now: 1) GreenlightWP.com as my productized service 2) Rad Automotive Jobs as a new niche job board 3) Current corporate WP clients 4) And many more that I haven't posted about yet 😂
#buildinpublic update for GreenlightWP.com -- we've got our entire service and offer reworked and relaunching our outbound campaigns this week. We've moved from a one-off site build-out service to monthly unlimited development plans.
#buildinpublic update on HireOctaneJobs.com -- LOTS of functionality is done now, custom faceted search, custom post types and taxonomies all setup to best organize Jobs by Type, Skills, & Benefits offered.
Currently building a small portfolio of directories, job sites & other digital properties. 1st one to launch in the coming weeks will be HireOctaneJobs.com -- a job board for the aftermarket automotive industry (hot rod shops, performance industry, etc)
#buildinpublic update for GreenlightWP: cold outbound campaigns generated 1 call early on, but has been dead since. Looking like a big change needed in offer, pitch or targeting. My personal network still only source of new projects.
Using @SearchWP is key for being able to search by custom fields and custom taxonomies for these sites. Building custom Job boards on WP with a simple but custom tech stack: custom post types, ACF, SearchWP & FacetWP
Just got @FacetWP & @SearchWP to build out search/filtering on my new Job boards I'm building! Excited to be putting together my own solution again like this (it's been a few years since I've used either of these).
Haven't posted much about it, but I'm taking the "small bets" approach with portfolio of ideas in my co. to supplement the main client services revenue. Working on a couple job sites & directories that I can hopefully grow and monetize as assets.
#buildinpublic updates: I'm working on 2 new Job Sites, one for aftermarket automotive jobs, and one for WP Jobs/talent. Have been developing and testing WP Job Manager but just ultimately decided to build out a simpler tech stack that requires far less plugins
#buildinpublic update for GreenlightWP (productized service). Outbound email campaigns have been going since July 19, booked one intro call so far from them. Call went great with prospect, verbal commitment to use our service on her next project.
#buildinpublic update for 397digital. Recurring revenue is strong, mainly driven by our corporate accounts. A few thousand a month in small agency work thru #GreenlightWP. Really working hard to launch a few sites that we'll own and monetize thru ads, listings, etc.
Spent last hour heads down, email inboxes closed, DND on phone... Focused to zero in on BIG strategy and focus for entire company. It's so easy to get caught up in the business and not focus enough on the real vision for the company #Entrepreneurship#buildinpublic
