In some ways it’s considered “bad” to go too far into a niche market, but lately I’ve begun to explore a pretty small market with custom plugins (while working on my major plugin projects).
GeoTheme is a new theme based on the GeoPlaces theme. GeoTheme was spawned when the purchases of the original theme became seriously disillusioned with the theme they bought. Lack of support, no updates etc drove them to basically make their own by branching the original.
My first plugin for this theme is the GT-Dashboard. It’s pretty simple and offers stats specific to your installation of GeoTheme. You can tell at a glance how many places & events you have, and how many reviews have been posted or are pending. I am planning to add some more reporting including financial information. It’s currently for sale over at ThemeTailors.com for just $5, including all future updates.
Next up, I’m working on a “deals” plugin – mostly re-purposing the Special Offers in GeoTheme, but likely expanding outside of this as well. There seems to be a high demand, so I need to get that done quickly.
