WordPress-based services business bad-assery

Are you a WordPress service provider looking to find bigger and better clients? Are you looking to grow your team? Considering or currently have some "virtual" / "distributed" team members? Want to know more about processes that can help you handle more clients with less work?

Come see Dr. Ned!

Ned Dwyer is the founder of, a curated marketplace of developers and marketers that help small businesses grow online. Since launching in 2012 they have worked with 10's of thousands of customers to help make their websites better, one tweak at a time.

Prior to running Elto Ned ran a digital agency in Australia working with brands like eBay, KFC and EA Games.

In this session he will run through how and why he went from running a small agency with a dozen clients to scaling up to work with thousands of clients around the world. He'll cover how they found new clients, built a distributed team and implemented processes to keep projects on track around the clock.

If you're a WordPress developer looking to find bigger and better clients, or if you're looking to grow your team or client base internationally then this talk should be relevant to you.

NOTE: The Meetup starts a 6PM. Please don't show up at Automattic before 5:45 or we'll taser you.

    Did I miss the email with link to video recording of WordPress-based services business bad-assery? I don't seem to have gotten it. Or perhaps it has been delayed? Anyone? Thanks
