This post is slightly outside of my usual content about SEO or selling marketing work. But it’s a need out in the Internet world so I figured I’d take a crack at it. Let me know if you want more of this tactical type stuff.
I’m running a full app/soon to be marketplace over on GetCredo.com. The backend app involves a lot of things being tied together, and because it is a multi-sided platform I have many different levels of users (they’re called “Roles” by WordPress).
I’ve been building out the next iteration of the platform, and with that comes the functionality for projects creators to see all of the replies from Credo pros within the app, signed in.
WordPress is an incredibly extendable platform, especially with all of the plugins that exist today. I’ve written about it before, that it is indeed possible to build companies that make good money (yes, even processing payments while you sleep) because of the tools available to entrepreneurs today. I have a lot of respect for the people who have come before me who have built a lot of the tools that I now use every single day – WordPress core, Gravity Forms, Stripe, membership plugins.
But there are still some shortcomings and thus we have to find workarounds.
