Q&A with developer and WordPress expert Rene Morozowich

A few months ago I was doing some research looking for newer articles on MainWP. That’s when I came across an article by Rene Morozowich. The article is Why (And How) I Switched From ManageWP To MainWP. The article was dated February 4 of 2022, so it was definitely new. In the article, Rene does a great job of documenting her journey from using her previous vendor to joining the MainWP family. She noted the difference in price and how she could save lots of money each month for her 50 websites. Before switching, she took MainWP for a test

It seems like more often than at any point in the past few years, I see agency owners frustrated with the whole content issue. They regularly struggle to get content from their clients for website projects. That is one reason I created the Website Copy Framework. There are two things you need to realize when it comes to content. First, clients will always underestimate the difficulty and scope of writing their own content. They always will. They will find it harder than they expect it to be for several reasons, including it is simply hard to write about your own

3 tips for preparing to train clients and users for using WordPress

A few weeks ago I received a text from a friend. We were college classmates about 30 years ago or so. He is the pastor at a nearby church. The website for his church was built on WordPress by someone who was previously at the church, and now, they needed some help. The website had some issues that I noticed pretty quickly, but they were interested in some training to use the website. I said I would help, and to be honest, I was a little stressed. I don’t train people to use WordPress much anymore. I was unsure what

5 things that WordPress Web Care Consultants can do to be more customer-focused

Welcome to my TED TODD Talk.   I have been around WordPress web care consultants for several years now and have seen a lot of the successes and failures that many have had. It can be hard with long hours trying to get client websites done, overwhelmed with a huge task list, feeling like the kitchen is on fire all the time, clients that ghost you, and never-ending isolation as we mostly work from home. Most web care consultants are trying to do right by their clients, not looking for any attention, and want to have time for their families.
