Introducing ProfitPress 2.0 to help you make more money with WordPress. Read about the relaunch here.

Introducing the WordPress & Remote Jobs Directory

We’re happy to announce that we’ve launched our job sites directory.  It focuses specifically on WordPress jobs and Remote jobs (non-WordPress specific).

Rather than including actual job listings, we opted to aggregrate the top sites for WordPress and Remote jobs.


WordPress Jobs

Despite how large the WordPress ecosystem is, there are surprisingly few places dedicated to WordPress jobs.  The highest quality WordPress job source we found was the Post Status Job Board.  Here’s how they describe their process:

The Post Status Job Board is the best way to get a job in front of serious WordPress professionals. Likewise, it’s the best way for serious WordPress professionals to find qualified, full-time positions at great companies.

All jobs submitted to Post Status go through a review process with our editorial team, where we qualify the employer and position available; then we do our best to help accurately express the position to our audience, so that both applicant and employer know as much about one another as possible before the interview starts. Then, it’s up to you.

Excerpted from the Post Status Job Board

Explore Post Status and other WordPress job sites on our jobs page.


Remote Jobs

We were surprised how many remote job sites there were–there are over 100 remote job sites on our list!  Some serving all remote jobs, some were specific to programming language, geography and more.  Other sites focused on specialties like customer support, design, etc.  Explore them all here.


Happy Hunting!

We hope these job resources are helpful,  If you have any corrections or additions let us know on our contact page.  Click the button below to go to our jobs page.

Relaunching ProfitPress: Make More Money with WordPress

A Failed Attempt

We originally launched ProfitPress in 2013 as a program to help WordPress freelancers make extra money by better monetizing low-value clients.  It was an interesting concept and fun to work on, but unsustainable as a standalone project.

Over the last few months we’ve been working to relaunch ProfitPress 2.0 with a new mission and a long-term approach.


Our New Mission

Our new mission is to help WordPress professionals earn more money. 

We’re broadening our approach to help all WordPress professionals: freelancers, agencies, plugin/theme developers, bloggers and anyone else who makes money with WordPress.

WordPress powers 1/3 of all websites–it’s powerful, versatile software and WordPress professionals wield that power.

But most WordPress professionals lack the knowledge to fully leverage that power–it’s a different skill set.

ProfitPress closes that gap to help WordPress professionals understand their unique strengths & discover how to start making extra money.


Our New Approach

Our new approach is to build a valuable WordPress resource over the next 5 years through content curation, writing in-depth guides, exploring new business models, sharing where other WordPress professionals are finding success and more.

We’ll also experiment with new plugins, frameworks and more.  We’ll share these learnings in structured, easily searchable way (we’ve been experimenting with Algolia and it’s awesome).

How ProfitPress is Organized

Here’s how we’ve organized ProfitPress 2.0:

  • Newsletter: Carefully selected articles to help you start earning more with WordPress.  We’ll start biweekly, then increase to weekly if needed.  (Update: See our first newsletter here.)
  • Jobs: A list of 100+ resources for WordPress and Remote (non-WordPress specific) jobs.
  • Articles: A browsable, hand-curated collection of the best articles from around the web to help you earn more with WordPress.
  • Guides: In-depth guides on ways to make more money with WordPress written by us and others.
  • Blog: News and updates on ProfitPress, including our roundups.

All resources are free.  We want ProfitPress 2.0 to be sustainable, so we’ll look into monetizing with affiliate links, premium guides, memberships, etc. in the future.

We’ve just relaunched, so expect our limited content to steadily grow as we add new content.

Thanks and here’s to earning more with WordPress!
