Presentation 1: Creating Sustainability in WP Client Handoff

Is there anything more heartbreaking than visiting a site 6 months after handoff to find it in disarray? Or coming to the end of a project so frustrated that the idea of client training is painful? We’ll go through 15 best practices you can undertake to ensure the website you turn over is sustainable, that client and provider leave the experience happier and we all stop wasting eachother’s time. Practices will cover internal processes as well as inherent WP tools to create better workflow and UI on the dashboard.
