THE LATEST EPISODE

228 – ‘J’ is for Jobs

This episode is about all the many, many, many jobs that you do each and every time you build a WordPress website for yourself or for a client. There really are so many! I’m not too sure that I do quite as much as David does, because, as you’ll hear, he’s does rather a lot. From setting hosting and email, from forms to security, this episode could have gone on for a long time. Maybe you treat each project individually, or have a template that you keep coming back to. Go listen to the podcast today and tell us what you think…

227 – Building websites in a day with your team

I’ve often thought about building my WordPress websites on the one day model, it’s got so much going for it. I’ve heard stories of quite a few people who are managing this very effectively. However, it’s always been something that I’ve associated with a single freelancer. I’d always assumed that the margins were pretty tight, and therefore most likely to work with one person. Well, Candy Phelps is on the podcast today to tell me (and you) otherwise! She’s built a business creating websites in a day with a team, and, as you might have guessed, it’s all about the process. If you get the process right from the start, you can make this work, as you’ll have all your ducks in a row, so that there’s no time wasted and every member of your team know what to do and when to do it. It’s pretty interesting to see how this all hangs together. Go listen…

226 – ‘I’ is for Images

The web is made up of Pictures and Words. Some of those pictures are moving (video), but it’s basically just those two things. We have easy ways to deal with putting photos and other kinds of images onto our WordPress websites with the features that are baked in, but there’s so much more to this topic. What kind of images are the best to use? How many thumbnail sizes should we be storing? Should we be serving our images over a CDN? Is it a good idea to compress our images so that they make a more lean loading experience? Where can we source our images? What software is good for quick alterations to the images that we’ve got. Honestly, there are a dozen more questions, but you get the idea that there’s a lot more to images than meets the eye. Go listen to the podcast to find out more…

225 – Send amazing curated newsletters with Curated

Having a newsletter is one of the best ways that you can communicate with an audience. In fact, I’d go as far as to say, that it’s the best. There’s no third-party platform involved. You are communicating with people who have signed up, and therefore really want to get your content. But, it can be a dull job keeping the content flowing. Today we learn about a SaaS platform which might just make that job a lot less painful. I’ve started to use it and it’s shaved hours out of my week. Go listen to the podcast today to find out more…

224 – ‘H’ is for Health

Today on the WP Builds podcast we’re talking about health. Not your health, but the health of the WordPress sites you build or manage. Turns out that there’s a boatload of things that need to be done regularly to keep your sites fighting fit. From backing them up to monitoring their uptime. Checking that they’re okay after updates to keeping up with the latest SEO trends. I could go on for a lot longer, in fact David and I do in the podcast. From an agency perspective, this episode is particularly interesting because many of the things that we discuss today are areas which you can productise and sell to your clients; because honestly, they’re unlikely to be something that your clients are interested in, they’ll just want to know that it’s done. Go check out the podcast today.

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.
