Sally Hogshead - Creator, Author, and Consultant of Fascination

Sally Hogshead - Creator, Author, and Consultant of Fascination | Wordpress Scoops | Scoop.it

What Sally Believes:

 

The world is not changed by people who sort of care

 

In a competitive environment, the most fascinating option always wins

 

Stand out, or don’t bother

 

You can be comfortable, or outstanding, but not both

 

Forget what your business card says. You’re an entrepreneur

 

Live in verbs

 

Passion is the ultimate way to add value to your clients

 

If you’re not eliciting a negative response from someone, you’re probably not fascinating to anyone

A business that powers 17% of the the Internet but only expects to turn over $45m in 2012

A business that powers 17% of the the Internet but only expects to turn over $45m in 2012 | Wordpress Scoops | Scoop.it

WordPress powers one of every 6 websites on the Internet, nearly 60 million in all, with 100,000 more popping up each day. Those run through its cloud-hosted service, which lets anybody create a free website online, attract 330 million visitors who view 3.4 billion pages every month.

 

Given the ubiquity of WordPress, why isn’t founder Matt Mullenweg, now 28, a billionaire?

 

Since its founding in 2005 Automattic has chosen scale over scratch, giving away much for free. Only 1% of WordPress.com devotees pay. Not among them: users of WordPress.org (the open-source version), who run servers and implement the software themselves. A small percentage has only recently been coaxed into paying for additional features like file backups. Automattic implemented an ad-sharing service–on a limited basis–just last year.

 

The company is profitable, he adds, having doubled sales every year since 2005. Yet Automattic projects just $45 million in sales for 2012, a small whorl of its enormous footprint.

 

[AS: STweM is proud to be powered by WordPress.com. I chose it as my CMS in 2008 because it was the best option available, not because I was aware of, or understood, the founder's principles.

 

Four years later, it is much more than just a CMS, and a leading a social business case study, and a force for social good.]
