Jeff Daigle, an eCommerce Problem Solver
Jeff calls himself an eCommerce problem solver. He focuses on WooCommerce and likes to help his customers in those moments when they need something outside-of-the-box. Jeff explains this with an example of a client who sells organic seed potatoes all over the country.
Brad takes him through his journey of starting on the web more than 20 years ago, discovering WordPress and, lastly, WooCommerce. Jeff has had varying experiences over the years but always felt the pull of technology.
He shares what he has learned—the good and the bad—from working with clients for the last 5 years using WooCommerce.
Jeff has dealt a lot with the topic of selling products on additional marketplaces. Brad asks him to dig a bit deeper into that and I ask him if he finds there are enough solutions to integrate WooCommerce or if a lot of it is still custom builds. Jeff has some really good insights into selling on marketplaces.
As we get ready to talk about WooCommerce 4.0, Brad also asks Jeff about the focus on React driven and whether his clients care or even understand it, which leads into a deeper conversation around React and the WooCommerce admin plugin that's going to be integration into WooCommerce 4.0.
