WPWeekly Episode 289 – Where Did WordPress’ Ease of Use Go? – WordPress Tavern

In this episode, John James Jacoby and I are joined by Scott Bolinger. Bolinger recently attended a Content and Commerce Summit where WordPress and WooCommerce were not mentioned. Bolinger shared the perspective he gained from an attending the event and speaking with a friend who uses Shopify.

We discuss what happened to WordPress’ ease of use, which user segment the project is developed for, and how can it provide an end-to-end user experience that’s on par with SaaS offerings like SquareSpace or Wix. We also talk about the challenges associated with setting up a WordPress site after the installation process. Last but not least, we discuss why some people are not recommending WordPress to friends or family anymore.
