A month ago, Kobe sent me a bunch of very interesting questions I was more than happy to answer to. Now, a month later, the interview has been published. It’s a story how I’ve shifted the focus from developer to a marketer and more business guy. Here it is, by yours truly:
Inspired by Ionut’s interview, I’ve reached out to Courtland a couple of weeks ago for an interview about ProteusThemes. Fast forward some weeks and some long night of writing, the interview has hit the front page of the Indie Hacker’s website yesterday.
At ProteusThemes we’ve lately started to focus more on the content marketing. I am by no means the expert of the field or have years of experience, but in the last couple of months of reading and listening to lots of marketing podcasts (namely Marketing Made Easy by Amy Porterfield and Online Marketing School by Neil Patel & Eric Siu) I’ve learned that:
- Invest less time in creating content and more time in promoting content.
- Focus on high-quality content, the content that lasts. Produce less in quantity for the better quality. Find existing content on the topic and upgrade it instead of always starting from scratch.
- Promote your content heavily, especially in the first weeks, because nobody else will do it for you (unless you’re lucky, so don’t rely on it).
- Repurpose your content.
Let’s be spontaneous. At the moment of writing the time is 4.30 pm and I don’t have plans for this evening. All I know is that I want to hang out with other WP makers (plugins/theme developers) and business owners and grab a 🍻 together. Or a 🍷, we’re in Paris after all.
3, 2, 1 … and today I’m flying out to the WordCamp Europe! This year it’s happening in the Paris, France and I’m so excited to finally meet some old friends again and make new friendships as well.
My unique t-shirts are starting to be my hook, so I’ll see me wearing the “I’m Primož 🔈 pree-mosh …” labels again.
You don't have to love your work, love what you DO!

It’s exactly a week since I’ve flown in the sunny and summerish Phoenix, AZ. The reason? The PressNomics conf, to meet new people and make new connections. Did the conference meet the expectations? Not only that. It exceeded them all the way!
So what was so special about it? Hmmm, where should I start …

It all started about a month back on a Slack channel when Adam from Astoundify, Rich from ThemeBeans, and Andy from Parallelus convinced me in half an hour to buy the ticket for PressNomics. I’m getting really excited about my trip to the USA which begins only 2 days from writing this.
I heard lots of hype and news about Google releasing and open sourcing Guetzli this week.
Heck, even I’m hyped and excited.
Yeah, I know, the sample was too small. But still, here are the results:
