WordPress Consultancy For Beginners

I've been working with WordPress since 2008 and have expert-level knowledge of how it works and integrates into new or existing businesses.

I can help define and align your WordPress solution with your business strategies, deliver the right skills and expertise, save you time and money, make complex projects simple and protect your valuable business data.

One-on-One Help For WordPress Beginners

Yes, WordPress powers over 33% of the interwebs.  It is an amazing tool that allows you to quickly add content online - if you already know how to use it!

If you are a beginner-level WordPress user it can be daunting and frustrating learning how to edit menus, curate content, deal with plugins misbehaving, themes and styling.

I can help you reign in the WordPress beast, tame that juggernaut before it gets out of control.

Book some one-on-one time with me and power through the barriers you need to overcome quickly while learning how WordPress works at the same time.

There's only so much you can learn from tutorials and YouTube videos and you certainly can't ask them to explain how it applies to your own situation.

I work with individuals and freelancers all the time to help them get unstuck on their WordPress journey.

Consultation For Businesses

You have likely been running WordPress in your business for some time now, and you have mastered how to add and edit content.

But your WordPress installation has now become a monster and is taking longer and longer to manage all those plugins, some of which you only need to use a handful of times, but you daren't remove.

Perhaps it's time for an overhaul, a complete rebuild to make it leaner and meaner for your business?

Or you want WordPress to work smarter for you, integrating into your other company systems and automating as much as possible to give you back time to focus on running your business efficiently and, of course, making more money!

I've worked with businesses big and small to integrate a lean, efficient

WordPress system into their business.  I can help you too!

Kialla Pure Foods

Kialla Pure Foods needed a website rebuild to match their new branding, update their technologies and refine website administration workflows.

The website needed to run WooCommerce and implement a page builder for easy user future updates.

Importing and exporting products and custom product tracking batch numbers with Google Mapping API integration was a top requirement.

The unique part of this project was allowing customers to track their products all the way back to the farm, a Kialla Pure Foods trademarked system called Plate2Farm ™.
