- So a little background before I dig into this..
- WordPress and I go back to 2004'ish…
- In 2012, I made the decision to become a WordPress developer
- I freelanced, worked for a corporation as their lead WordPress dev for 4 years.. led teams.. and..
- Launched my own agency in Jan. 2019.
- So.. I live and breathe WordPress.
- My agency..
- Custom Themes, features, maintenance..
- And work with other agencies to deliver services to their clients.
- And we are U.S. based.
- Why WordPress
- Hugely popular..
- Thousands of plugins to extend what comes out of the box.
- SEO out of the box.. plugins to extend that.
- The right theme can make it as fast as any other site.
- You can use pre-built themes OR go full custom…
- Any design you create can be translated to work in WordPress. Few limits!
- The agencies we work with don't build WordPress in-house.
- But why do they need it?

- How do you get started finding that ‘other agency'?
- Decide what you need..
- Always keep an eye open..
