John Turner is the co-founder of SeedProd. He has over 20+ years of business and development experience and his plugins have been downloaded over 25 million times.

Today, I am excited to share that SeedProd is joining Awesome Motive.

Awesome Motive is the management company behind the largest WordPress resource site, WPBeginner, and several popular WordPress plugins like OptinMonster, WPForms, MonsterInsights, and WP Mail SMTP.

I launched SeedProd with a mission to help businesses get a head start on building their online presence with viral coming soon pages. Since then SeedProd has become the most popular coming soon and maintenance mode plugin for WordPress with over 800,000 active installs.

It has been an amazing journey thus far, and I’m extremely thankful for the loyalty and support of the SeedProd community. With Awesome Motive’s vast resources and deep understanding of the WordPress industry, I know we’ll be able to bring even more powerful solutions to the SeedProd plugin.

Since this is a BIG NEWS, you probably have a lot of questions like: how did this merger come about, what will happen to SeedProd team, will the prices stay the same, what’s coming next, etc.

Background Story

I have known Syed Balkhi, founder of Awesome Motive, for multiple years. Syed has supported SeedProd since the early days by featuring it on WPBeginner. When he announced the WPBeginner accelerator fund for WordPress businesses, I applied because I respect what they have built at Awesome Motive.

After numerous conversations, we both agreed that a full acquisition makes more sense for SeedProd given the synergies between our products.

As part of this acquisition, I will be joining Awesome Motive as a partner.

When it comes to business, Syed and I share a lot of core values specifically building products that are customer-focused and easy to use.

I’m super excited to learn from the team and leverage their knowledge to continue making SeedProd even better.

What will happen to the SeedProd team?

SeedProd has always been a team of one (me), and I’m not going anywhere.

As I mentioned, I am joining Awesome Motive as a partner and will continue to lead SeedProd.

This acquisition means that we will soon be hiring and growing the SeedProd team, so we can bring more powerful solutions your way (faster).

What’s Changing on SeedProd?

Right now, nothing is changing. It’s business as usual.

In the coming weeks, you will likely see a new website design.

We’re starting work on a revamped SeedProd builder, and I can’t wait to share all the powerful features that will bring your way!

Are you going to change prices?

We will never raise prices for existing users. If you have an active subscription of SeedProd, then you will be forever grand-fathered into your existing plan.

As we add more features in the future, we may experiment with different pricing plans.

What’s Coming Next?

As I mentioned, we’re starting work on a revamped SeedProd builder, and I know you’re going to love it.

We will also make tweaks to the website design to better highlight all the features that SeedProd offers.

Once again, I want to thank you for your continued support of SeedProd, and I can’t wait to bring more exciting features your way.
