We’re back this week with another full length episode of Divi Nation, the official Divi podcast. This time our guest is none other than Pippin Williamson of Pippin’s Plugins.
Pippin and his team are the creators of many popular WordPress plugins. Three in particular stand out: Affiliate WP, Easy Digital Downloads, and Restrict Content Pro.
Pippin has demonstrated a proven knack for identifying good plugin ideas and then building the necessary team around himself to successfully pull off the creation and maintenance of each one. Making him an ideal person for any WordPress entrepreneur to learn from.
Divi Nation 18: Do Less Sooner & Other Great Advice from Pippin Williamson
In this episode I was fortunate enough to pick the brain of one of the most successful WordPress plugin developers on the planet. During our interview Pippin tells his WordPress story; from curious college kid looking to make rent, to a plugin developer with tens of thousands of active plugin installs. We also talk about the importance of great customer support, delegation, and Pippin’s number one tip for long term success.
I hope you enjoy our conversation as much as we did. And if you’d like to make sure you can easily watch or listen to future episodes of Divi Nation (as well as our entire archive), please take a moment and use one of the subscription options we’ve provided below.

Your Turn: Weigh In On This Episode
One of the reasons I’ve really enjoyed having some of the bigger names in WordPress on the show lately is because they’ve already navigated a lot of the most difficult challenges many newer WordPress designers, developers, and entrepreneurs are only now beginning to run into. By hearing their stories we know it’s possible to make it through. And by hearing how they did it, we gain insight into what might work for us.
But that doesn’t mean everything said is crystal clear the first time around.
This is your chance to ask follow-up questions. Or, to share your own thoughts and anecdotes in the comments below. You’ll also want to be sure to check the subscribe to conversation via email option so that you can continue to participate in the conversation.
I want to work for Pippin, He gets what it is about being a front line support person. Thank You, thank you, thank you for your comment about giving us a break.
I also love his comments about hire what your need for as long as you need them, that might only be for an hour. YES!!!!
This was my first time tuning in, really enjoyed the episode. I love hearing how people have gotten started and what does/doesn’t work for them. Personal story podcasts are my favorite, it doesn’t always have to be all about the code. There’s a human being that’s actually writing it! Mind blowing, I know. 😉
