    Great meetup, everyone. Great questions too. I hope you all got some indication on next steps with WooCommerce. Some plugins and products I mentioned were: http://wordpress.org/plugins/genesis-connect-woocommerce, http://www.bidsketch.com, http://aws.amazon.com/s3 (be sure to read the 'Get Started' section first).

      Adeel, EchoSign is a tool to get signatures on your documents. I use HelloSign (like EchoSign) to send and get contracts signed. Bidsketch is solely to help you prepare proposals using segments like Goals, Solutions, Fees, etc.

    An excellent meetup, I learned a lot of new things that I didn't know about e-commerce, particularly WooCommerce.

    Tonight's Meetup was excellent! I came home with a list of sites and services to investigate. In addition to WooCommerce, Christina encouraged us to look into the use of Amazon S3 for a backup location and BidSketch to help create contract-winning proposals. Thank you very much, Christina for a wonderful presentation!

    Great group and I appreciate you all for answering my concerns. New to WordPress yet confident it will be a great investment.

    Christina provided an excellent view of WooCommerce, related plugins and specific examples. Advice on when to consider other options was helpful. As usual, a wide range of interesting subjects were discussed that was valuable to seasoned WP attendees as well as those of us relatively new to the WP scene. An excellent use of my time.

    David, I'll be looking forward to the start of the other-date meetings you're thinking of. Because of the Fort Bend Internet Marketing Meeting at noon and the need to feed horses in Wharton late in the day, it's tough to get back to Katy for an evening meeting. Sorry I'm missing this.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
