Three years ago this month Jason Schuller launched Press75.com with just three video-centric themes. Now at 25 themes and, according to Schuller, several thousand customers later Press75 has come a long way.
As Schuller explained on his blog, Press75 grew out of his experiment with WPElements.com, where he sold his first Video Flick theme for just $5. He started up WPElements to test out his idea after walking away from his day job in January of 2008. As for the origin of the name Press75? Schuller says:
With that in mind I wanted to create a store front and a brand that was unique, which is how Press75.com was born. Why “Press75″? The answer is simple… “Press” obviously stands for WordPress and “1975″ was the year that I was born, hence “Press75″.
So how many of you have been following Press75.com and Schuller’s work since he started? Also, is his story of entrepreneurial success act as encouragement for anyone else?
