Bob DunnBob Dunn, a WordPress designer and trainer since 2008, recently launched his third membership site, Through the first and second ones, he refined his model and strategies, and experienced some valuable lessons. He is going to tell you what he learned through that: what worked—and what bombed, so you can avoid making the same mistakes. He will share what you should prepare for, as well as thought process that led him to choose WooThemes and WooCommerce, for his new site. He will also talk a bit about other options he considered before making the final decision.
