I co-founded Barn2 Media with my husband Andy in 2009, as we wanted to follow our dream of running a business from home. My background is in project management and marketing, and Andy's is in software development.
We started by designing WordPress websites for clients and always had more than enough work. However, our real goal was to sell WordPress products.
After a few failed side projects, we committed more fully to developing and selling WordPress plugins in 2016. Our first premium plugin was called WooCommerce Password Protected Categories, designed to meet a specific need that we had read about on the official WooCommerce Ideas forum.
The plugin business has gone from strength to strength and we now have 5 premium plugins and hope to launch several more this year. Our bestselling plugin is called WooCommerce Product Table. It lists WooCommerce products in a searchable table or order form layout with filters. We developed this plugin in response to our customers' requests, and have been amazed and delighted at its success.
