This group is intended for people who wanted to learn and exchange ideas about building online sites for their businesses using Wordpress and/or Woocommerce. I am still starting this group and wanted to see how many people are interested.
As this group grows, I look forward organizing the first meetup. Initially, I am looking into having a specific topic every meetup (e.g. setting up Stripe Payments or Woocommerce Branding) and then after topic discussion, there will be a window for exchanging ideas and helping each other building their websites.
Topics would mainly be about Woocommerce and Wordpress but we will also go to topics that are related to the same that would be also helpful for your business like site branding, SEO, Mobile design and many more. Let's make this an exciting group.
I am an English speaking person and know some Japanese. Both English-speaking and Japanese-speaking (and even other languages) are very welcome. Initially, I will be doing all the topic discussion in English as I am not yet that good in Japanese and later I would like to find a volunteer Japanese (probably who also knows English) to also do the topic discussion for Japanese-speaking members. If not I will also do the Japanese discussion once I am already good at conversing in Japanese.
I have been using Wordpress for more than 10 years and Woocommerce for more than 5 years. I have been building wordpress sites and woocommerce sites to around 50-60 clients around the world. It seems that woocommerce is way moving forward for e-commerce, especially for small businesses. During 2017, around 41% of the ecommerce sites uses e-commerce which is a very big market share. I am located in Yokohama, that is why it is named Yokohama group but anyone from Japan or even outside Japan can join!
- If you are a small business owner wanting to launch your first wordpress / woocommerce site, you are very welcome.
- If you are developer or web designer who uses wordpress / woocommerce, you are also very welcome. - If you are just curious about what is wordpress / woocommerce - I'd be very delighted if you join this group.
PS. Please do not use this group solely to advertise your business. It is very welcome to introduce you and your business, of course, but please do not use this group only for advertising opportunities. My vision is to have a group where people help each other grow.
