Katie Keith Joint Founder of Barn 2 a Leading WordPress Plugin Shop

How To Run A Highly Successfully WordPress Plugin Company Remotely As Semi Digital Nomads

'm Katie Keith - Director and Co-Founder at Barn2 Plugins. I started the company back in 2010 with my husband Andy, and we now have a team of about 12 people and sell WordPress and WooCommerce plugins to website owners and agencies in over 140 counties worldwide. Our bestselling plugins are WooCommerce Product Table (https://barn2.com/wordpress- plugins/woocommerce-product-table) and Document Library Pro (https://barn2.com/wordpress- plugins/document-library-pro).

I'm from the UK and am currently living on the sunny island of Mallorca for a year, enjoying the flexibility of running a WordPress company which I can operate from anywhere in the world.
I have a 10-year-old daughter called Sophia and enjoy hiking, yoga and eating out


Main Questions of the Interview

#1 - Katie can you give the WP-Tonic's tribe your's and Barn 2 background history?

#2 - I'm right in saying that you and your husband are digital nomads and if yes how has this directly affected how you run Barn 2?

#3 - Like a lot of founders of successful WordPress plugin shops your origins seem to be serving clients as a traditional digital agency if this is correct and can you give some key tips, connected to successfully moving into the plugin shop space?

#4 - Can you give the tribe one or two key lessons you have personally learned connected to building up Barn-2?

#5 - I get the impression from a lot of theme and plugin shops have had a difficult couple of years connected to dealing with a large increase of support tickets linked to the fragmentation of the WordPress market linked to the number of page builders out on there and also dealing the constant changes linked to Gutenberg, would you agree with this statement?

#6 - What do you see as some of the key opportunities in the WordPress ecosystem at the present moment?
