In the realm of theme and plugin stores there’s a lot of competition. The team over at Seshn (pronounced session), a platform being built on top of WordPress, feels that they’re ready to tackle that market—they’re quite ambitious about it, too.
While not a lot of information is available about how they plan do achieve their goals, founder Brandon Winnie was kind enough to give us a small look at what they want to achieve and where they want to be in the game.
In short: They want to be one of the companies to watch in 2012 and the number one WordPress theme and plugin store in the world by the end of 2013. Remember when I mentioned that they’re quite ambitious? They say they plan to hit their goals by focusing on the average consumer rather than more technical folks. In the beginning their platform will be targeted at anyone that wants to build a name for themselves. To drive that point home, they’ve enlisted the help of some athletes and celebrities (none named specifically) to show what you can do with your site using Seshn.
If you’re interested in trying it out, they’re taking email addresses on their site to be a part of the beta period. What do you think: is there still time to make a mark in the commercial WordPress space with the right innovative idea?
