I developed a few small premium WordPress plugins in the past and they were easily manageable by one single developer (me), which also provided support. For the past year, I’ve been working on a larger plugin for building premium WordPress networks (https://wpultimo.com) and I’m trying to turn it into a business.
Fortunately, the plugin is starting the pick up the pace and sales are growing really fast. I’ve always been the “do-it-all” type of guy and I have huge issues delegating tasks but at the same time I’m starting to realize that I’ll be a bottleneck to the business’ growth if I don’t bring up people to help me with support and development.
Do you guys have any tips on how to recruit people to do support and development? Where did you find your first employee? Any thoughts on how to deal with delegation issues and the urge to micro-manage?
Thanks in advance.
