Q&A with WordPress Professional Erin Flynn

Talking to Erin about things such as tools, the future of WordPress, and why she started teaching her training system. It is no secret that I love to hear people’s stories. I love to hear how entrepreneurs overcome adversity. I wrote a whole series of blog posts in 2016 called Entrepreneur Stories. This series did two things for me. First, it allowed me to connect.

Q&A with WordPress Entrepreneur Viktor Nagornyy

I’ve been a fan of Viktor Nagornyy for a while now. Viktor isn’t afraid to talk about Inbound Marketing which often seems taboo in WordPress circles. People talk about Inbound Marketing like it only belongs to Hubspot. While Hubspot coined the term, Inbound Marketing is another word for online marketing which we all have a part. WordPress is a fantastic solution for being the center of an online marketing plan. Viktor’s team has successfully helped several business owners transition from the Hubspot platform to a WordPress centric platform. Viktor is also a user of MainWP. When I realized that, I

Q&A with WordPress Entrepreneur Brian Casel
