154 – Because online privacy matters, we need people like Heather Burns

Once in a while you attend an event and the speaker is so eloquent, so immersed in their talk, that you listen with an intensity that it out of the ordinary. Such was a talk given by the guest of the podcast today, Heather Burns. It was at WordCamp London in 2017, and I was in the audience. It was about online privacy, an area that she’s an expert in. Today we discuss what online privacy actually is and how you need to be mindful about it as you build your WordPress websites. It’s becoming more important year by year as we’re now realising that we’re often sacrificing our data and it might be used in ways that we’re really not comfortable with. Join me as I discuss where you can make a difference and how WordPress is positioning itself with regards to privacy.

153 – Losing clients before you even get them

This is a little mini-series based upon the book ‘Watertight Marketing’ by Bryony Thomas. This is about that time in the client / project lifecycle when they (the client) have made some kind of commitment to use your products or services, they might even have signed a contract, but you’ve not delivered anything yet. It’s a time when they can still ‘get away’ from you. Yes, you might have a contract in place whereby you can insist that they are obliged to give you this or that, but honestly, have you ever enforced this, or is it better to just let them walk away and save yourself the legal fees and headache of trying to get them to pay up what they owe you? David calls this ‘The Welcome Window’. You think that you have them as a client, but it’s still possible for things to go wrong…

152 – Riding a jolly long way for the WordPress community with Dan Maby and Carole Olinger

WordPress is a huge community, and in that community there are people who need help and support. WP and UP is a charity that I’m involved with which offers that help. It’s a truly great vision, but, as with all things it takes time and money to make it happen. Some of us at WP and UP decided to ride from Berlin to Portugal in 2020 to raise money for the charity. That’s nice you say, what a jolly thing to to… erm… no. It’s 3,000 km (nearly 2,000 miles) and it goes over a mountain range! In this episode I speak to my fellow riders, Dan Maby and Carole Olinger about why we’re doing it, how we’re doing it and why they don’t appear to be scared as I am. Have a listen and perhaps even support the project?

151 – Are we leaking clients?

This episode is really about keeping the WordPress clients that you already have. What’s the old phrase? Don’t leave money on the table? Well, that’s certainly the case for many of us. This is another episode in our mini series and it’s all about trying to get as much value from and to the clients that you already have. Perhaps you build sites and then just move on not making use of the rapport and connections that you’ve made. Surely though, our existing clients are the ones that know us and what we do best. They have trust in you and what you’re able to offer. So today we explore what we’ve done to foster these client relationships and David has some great ideas about what he’s doing with his own agency. Well worth a listen…

150 – Kinsta hosting on Google’s Cloud with Brian Jackson

Today we have a chat with Brian Jackson from Kinsta. Kinsta are a managed WordPress hosting company who have grow rapidly since their inception in 2013. When they started managed WordPress hosting was not the giant business that it was today. In those days we were still opting for shared hosting and VPS hosting. But with the advent of cloud platforms such as Amazon’s AWS and Google Cloud, there came an opportunity for people with the skills to leverage those platforms and repurpose them as WordPress specific hosting solutions. Find out how Kinsta works and see if they are a good fit for your next WordPress project.

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.
