Presentation 1: How to Market Your WP Maintenance Services
Jenn Nickerson -
A lot of clients' websites can suffer from a "set it up and walk away" mentality. You assume they are going to be logging in and keeping their site updating after that last check cleared right? Wrong, the average WP client doesn't really have the time or knowledge to know what to do with out of date plugins, themes and core files. How do you market your site maintenance services without spooking them?
I have been building websites using WordPress since 2008 and haven't looked back since! I love working with fellow independent business owners, startups, non-profits and professional bloggers. I live in Marblehead, MA and have several local businesses as clients. I am currently working towards being able to create my own themes and plugins and I specialize in working with clients to understand how to use their site to its full potential.
