WPSchoolPress is a WordPress plugin for School Management. The free plugin is already approved on WordPress.org since Jan 2019. Since then, there have been over 30,000 downloads. We offer paid add-ons to enhance plugin features on wpschoolpress.com. The first paid add-on was launched in June 2019. In the last three months, we have launched another 4 add-ons as well as a popular bundle pack. More add-on development is in the works due to the high demand from our users.
How does your business make money?
We opted for freemium business model. We have developed a free version of the WPSchoolPress plugin which is available on WordPress.org plugin repo for anyone to download. The free plugin does many things such as adding unlimited classes, subjects, students, parents, teachers, exams, schedules, grades, transportation, events, attendance and more.
When users need more features such as ability to bulk import/export data, send an SMS message when student is absent, assign one student to multiple classes, allow users to register from front-end etc, we have paid add-ons available.
The goal in first 6 months of this year has been to submit plugin on WordPress.org for free, resolve bugs, optimize, complete design overhaul, and build a strong user base. Then users come to us to purchase add-ons. In the second of this year, we have launched 5 paid add-ons and 2 another add-on development nearly finished. Add-on sales started as soon as we put out addon to sell with zero marketing.
Why are you selling this business?
We are a WordPress agency and this plugin was our side project. We acquired plugin back in 2017 due to its popularity. We rectified all coding errors in the plugin, added features and much more. Our goal was to get it ready to be submitted on WordPress.org to build a free user base. The plugin became available on WordPress.org in Jan 2019. We have collected 30,000 emails of users who have download a free version of our plugin. After the launch on WordPress.org, we received an incredible response and quickly become the most used plugin in its category.
We receive 15-30 inquiries on LIVE chat every day. Our plan was working and we quickly shifted our focus on creating paid add-ons. We launched 5 paid add-ons this year and sell for it started immediately. We have done no marketing or sales.
The plugin has unlimited potential as a market leader but we do not simply have time to run it. One of our other saas projects has picked up now and we need to give full attention to it.
