THE LATEST EPISODE

72 – A new way doing hosting (really) with Claudio Benvenuti from HardyPress

On the podcast today we’ve got Claudio Benvenuti from HardyPress, a company who do hosting your WordPress site a little differently. The normal hosting environment for WordPress usually involves a LAMP stack of some kind and that’s about it. It’s more complex as that as we all know, but that’s your basic level and it goes up from there. The amount of money that you spend buys you things like more bandwidth in a month, more hard disk space, and a better CPU. You might even invest in a managed WordPress host that does some serious work caching all the things to make it faster.

71 – How to be authentic and produce lots and lots of content with BobWP (Bob Dunn)

Let me introduce you to Bob Dunn (a.k.a. BobWP), ha, like that’s a sentence that you’re going to be able to say! We all know about Bob don’t we? We’ve read his many blogs and listened to his many podcasts and he’s taught us all a great deal. So this one was a great one for me to do as I have a huge amount of respect for Bob and all that he does for WordPress. What, I think, makes Bob unique is the sheer amount of quality content that he produces, it’s prodigious and it’s hard to know how he manages to create it all.

70 – Using Viral Marketing to grow your audience with Savvas Zortikis from Viral Loops

The SaaS app that you use on the WP Builds website to enter the competitions is called Viral Loops and today we have Savvas Zortikis on to speak about it.The idea behind viral marketing is that you offer something that people want and you ask them for their email in return. Well, that’s all pretty standard stuff that we’ve all known about since 1995! The word ‘viral’ is used here because of the fact that your entrants are encouraged to share your offer because if they do, they increase their own chance of winning. The more you share, the more you’re likely to walk away with the prize.

69 – Using Elementor? You need Katka from Barna Buxbaum

In this episode of the WP Builds podcast we get to talk to a very generous man! He’s called Barna Buxbaum and he’s the man behind the wildly popular template pack for the Elementor Page Builder called Katka. I’m always astonished by how people produce amazing things in the WordPress space and then just give them away for nothing! How cool is that? Barna’s Katka is a huge library of over 170 (yes 170!) design elements that you simply download and drag and drop into your page designs. There’s something for everyone, from ‘Calls to Action’ to ‘Testimonials’, ‘Pricing Tables’ to ‘FAQs’.

68 – “GeneratePress Sites” is going to speed up your site building with Tom Usborne and Paul Lacey

On the podcast this week we have not one, but two guests! They’ve come on to talk about the work that they’ve been doing to keep the amazingly popular WordPress theme GeneratePress up to date and relevant. Those two people are Tom Usborne, the lead developer from GeneratePress, and Paul Lacey, a long time user of the theme who runs , a WordPress agency based in the UK. Tom thought that it was time to add a new feature called “GeneratePress Sites” and it will allow you chose from a range of pre-designed sites, click a button and import those site’s designs and pages.

THE FRESH WP GOODNESS PODCAST

Chopped up like you would chop up a carrot, or perhaps a turnip... but not with a knife, because we, erm... chop things up with our podcast. So, WP Builds is like a big choppy, podcasty knife with lovely colourful hexagons.
