How to Keep a Joomla Business Growing in 2021

How to Keep a Joomla Business Growing in 2021

It's no secret that Joomla businesses are facing headwinds in 2021. It's not easy dealing with the Joomla 4 upgrades, and the competition from platforms such as WordPress.

I won't lie and say that Joomla in 2021 is the industry to be in if you want to make millions of dollars. Here at Joomlashack, we will probably grow around 5% to 6% this year. However, it is possible to run a profitable company that does good work and keeps growing. There's no secret to doing this, but you do have to focus on getting the business fundamentals right.

I ask our team to concentrate on these three priorities:

  1. Recurring revenue
  2. Higher prices
  3. Good communication

If you want to find a Joomla developer you can trust, ask yourself if they are taking the steps above. Do they use recurring subscriptions? Do they charge a good price for their products? Do they communicate often on their blog and social media?

These thoughts were inspired by conversations with customers, and those led to a presentaton in partnership with TechJoomla. You can watch the full video below:
