Show Notes

This week, on WP-Tonic EP118, we're joined by Scott Buscemi, founder of Luminary Web Strategies, a WordPress agency that specializes in WooCommerce and Easy Digital Downloads integrations.

Scott shares some of his extensive personal insights about what makes a great e-commerce site, and growing an e-commerce centered agency. He also delves into his 8 years of helping clients get the eCommerce results they are looking for. Some of the things we talk about have nothing to do with the technology, but more about helping the clients see what are the real business problems they are facing, and then offer them solutions!
