When is it Time to Revamp a Small Business Website? Here are 9 Ways to Know

The most important thing about this question is knowing when to ask it. Most small businesses are masters of their craft, not website experts. That’s why 95% of small businesses have outdated websites. That’s also a big opportunity for WordPress professionals to help out.


WordPress Pros vs. Website Builders: The Role of WordPress Professionals

There was a recent article by Smashing Magazine that detailed how web agencies like mine need to step it up and offer more value than just building a website. It’s a misnomer that many of us find difficult to penetrate. The idea that our livelihood is going away because of websites like Squarespace, Weebly, WordPress.com or Wix, is not accurate.


Lead Generation for Small Businesses (the Right Way!)

Small businesses often struggle to find new people who are interested in their product or service. Other than paying to be seen by potential clients, such as with pay-per-click ads, how else can a small business compete? That’s exactly where organic lead generation comes into play.

How to use Referral & Affiliate Programs to Earn More Money with Your WordPress Website

Wouldn’t it be nice if a WordPress site could be something more than just the digital face of one’s brand? That’s why you develop websites in the first place–to help companies do more with their digital presence. In other words, to generate more leads and conversions for their business. But is that enough? Is the revenue that comes from direct efforts to sell a service or product on the site the only thing you should be focused on?

In my challenge to Roberto, he walks me through exactly what he’d suggest I do to get started building a personal brand (if it was the day after I got let go). He identifies the strategies, tactics, and mindset that any new entrepreneur should embrace, and highlights the shifting culture of modern business.

How Automatic License Renewals for Premium WordPress Plugins & Themes Increases Revenue (20 months of data)

About twenty months ago, while sitting on a couch in Auckland, New Zealand, my team and I flipped the switch to enable automatic renewals for AffiliateWP. Two months later we did the same thing for Easy Digital Downloads and Restrict Content Pro. This was a move that we had been working towards for nearly a year and it’s one that we believed would fundamentally change the position of the company over the next one to two years. Now that it has been twenty months, maybe we can answer the question: were we right? Did it make a significant impact for us or was it all futile hopes?

Alternatively, if planned or executed incorrectly – become a huge waste of time and money, so it’s important to do it right.
