BuddyBoss Expert Explains...
Should I Hire a Qualified and Experienced BuddyBoss Expert?
Hiring a BuddyBoss expert is an idea you should consider when building your first BuddyBoss expert online course or membership site.
Now I get it. Your a small business owner. You don’t have all the resources in the world. You want to understand what’s happening. You want to stay in control of what you consider a very important project. So you bare knuckle it yourself as a first time BuddyBoss / WordPress site developer.
This is NOT an approach I recommend.
It not the best way to get your self the results you want. My team and I have worked with so many business owners that have tried to do it on their own and it didn’t get the BuddyBoss site they needed for their business. In many cases, it got them a big mess that required hiring a team like ours to get everything working right.
BuddyBoss isn’t a complicated solution. It is a platform that does a lot. There are dozens and dozens of options. There are a lot of decision you need to make turning on some features and turning others off.
If it’s you’re first time doing it, it’s going to take you a lot of time to figure this out and, even then, you are NOT going to make the best use of all BuddyBoss has to offer. You are also going to miss out on the best practices an experienced team can point out to you.
So if you are going to hire and team to work with you on BuddyBoss, what is it you should look for? Obviously, a good BuddyBoss specialist should have plenty of experience using the tool and have the portfolio to prove it.
But what should you look for in the best team for you?
What Should You Look for in a BuddyBoss expert team?
We’ve spoken about the importance of hiring an experience team. By now, you likely understand the value of hiring a sharp BuddyBoss consultant team and the advantages that’s going to get you.
Let’s go over how you go about finding one.
Get recommendations from people you know
The obvious thing to do is ask around. If you know someone who has a BuddyBoss site you like, ask how they built in and get the name of the person that helped them build it. If there are people you know working in this sector ask them if they know any experts. People who have worked WordPress and developers that build these websites are typically good resources to tap. If the know any BuddyBoss experts, get the name and call them.
Do some research
Unfortunately, not everyone has a network of people that are in close contact with BuddyBoss experts. It’s a niche field that not every one has the connections. So one way to find people is to do some Google searching. Search for terms like BuddyBoss expert, BuddyBoss consultant, BuddyBoss developers. See who pops up towards the top of those searches. (You may end up finding team and I at Larry Jacob Internet Marketing.)
This will get you a short list of people that you can then call.
Get recommendations from top tech blogs
When you are searching online, you will also find some tech blogs that will get you a list of professionals in the industry. You can check those recommendations and evaluate them based on your requirements.
Once you do have a list, here are some steps for assessing the experts.
Check their portfolio
Checking portfolios is one of the best ways to know about an expert’s quality of work. Of course, anyone looking for business as a BuddyBoss guru will claim that they are the best. Check their portfolio to confirm.
It is their previous works that tell how good they are at their job. Evaluate their work. You also can check reviews from previous clients of the developer if there are any.
Get on a call and talk to them
After you have done all this work, you are likely closing in on a possible buddyboss expert to hire. As a final step, talk to them. Schedule a call and ask about how they work and explain your requirements to them.
After these calls, you should have all you need to make a good decision.

BuddyBoss vs learndash
BuddyBoss helps users to communicate with each other efficiently, while LearnDash is a platform to publish and manage courses on your site well.
How do you use BuddyBoss with LearnDash?
You can use both BuddyBoss and LearnDash on your WordPress website. Combining these two platforms not only improves the efficiency of your site but also helps the learners to learn more effectively.
Buddyboss Platform Pro vs BuddyBoss Platform
When you purchase BuddyBoss, you get a theme, a child theme and two plugins to install. After your purchase, you will download BuddyBoss Theme, BuddyBoss Child Theme, BuddyBoss Platform and BuddyBoss Platform Pro.
The BuddyBoss Theme is the parent WordPress theme. The BuddyBoss Child Theme inherits functionality from the parent and allows you to make modifications to the theme following WordPress best practices.
Per the BuddyBoss Platform Pro video tutorial, “…the goal of this plugin is to allow us to add really, cool innovated premium features for our paying customers while still being able to give out BuddyBoss Platform for free and continue to support that product.” So you need both plugins to make the most of BuddyBoss.
To sum up, you need to go through detailed research to find the best BuddyBoss expert. Though we have recommended Larry Jacob, we suggest you research more about the team before making a final decision.
