Fresh WP Goodness...

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.

Our latest episodes...

27 – The WP community with Paul Lacey

Today we rejoice! We have that nice Paul Lacey with us! We are in the WordPress Community! Let’s hold hands and sing and dance around the podcasty campfire… Ah, no, no wait, that’s too disturbing! In truth, this episode is about Paul’s 10 plus year journey working with WordPress.

26 – Turning your web design business around with Chantal Edouard-Betsy

Chantal, from 1daywebs, turned her website design business away from the tedium long drawn out projects to the heart fluttering thrills of one day web builds. She’s never looked back. D’ya fancy some of that too?

25 – Beaver Themer with Justin Busa and Robby McCullough

Today we welcome back Robby and Justin from Beaver Builder. The last time they joined us was for our Christmas special. This time it just feels like Christmas. If you didn’t know already the Beaver Builder team have just released their Beaver Themer extension.

24 – We have a plugin idea, how do we get customers?

This week we talk to not one, but two lovely developers (Nathan Tyler and Natalie MacLees) from California who have a really interesting take on launching their plugin. Their new plugin, Simply Schedule Appointments is launching BEFORE it’s ready!

23 – The price of using WordPress

Today we talked about the price of using WordPress. No, it’s not a long sob story about how the wife and kid left us! Those trailer park days are behind us now!
The topic came out of a Facebook discussion around a plugin release. It got us thinking about our expectations as “professional” builders of websites.

22 – Amir Helzer, CEO of Toolset and WPML

In this episode (drum roll please) we had the great honor of talking to Amir Helzer. Amir is the CEO of OnTheGoSystems known for WP-Types’ Toolset, the WPML multilanguage plugin and also ICanLocalize.
Yes, indeed, how did we manage that? More to the point, how did he manage that?

21 – Can we compete with Wix Weebly SquareSpace and Shopify?

We hate to say it, but DIY website building solutions are getting more attractive all the time. They offer an empowering solution to the “I want a website” problem. Are we facing extinction?

20 – What do clients need to know about web software licenses?

My oh my! Software licenses. What a knotty subject that it. It seems we both came to WordPress seeing software primarily as the tools we use to build websites. I mean who asks a plumber what spanner he (sometimes she) uses to fix a boiler? Okay, maybe Nathan might, but that’s not the point!

19 – What do you need to know to offer a full web design service

Today we ask ourselves what skills do we need to offer a full web design service. That sounded like a great topic. It turns out it’s a bit slippery this one.Is a webdesigner like a graphic designer for the web or someone who designs business solutions that are realised on the web?

18 – What’s so great about WordCamp?

In what can only be described as a bizarre coincidence today is “World day of making a podcast about WordCamps”.

Even more freakily (is that really a word?) we have both just recently attended our first WordCamps. I know, you’re right – it’s almost unbelievable!

17 – What should we expect from WP support?

No guests this week. Just Nathan and David. Two guys in their middle youth chatting about stuff we love.
Ok, there maybe little bit of venting, but actually this is quite a nice topic.
Happy “Knowledge Base” day 😉

16 – Alternative revenue streams for freelancers with Davinder Singh Kainth

Today we talk about multiple income streams with Davinder Singh Kainth. Many will know Davinder from his ProBeaver site, weekly newsletter and tireless support in the Beaver Builder Facebook Group.

Lion tamer and liar

I travel, help people make websites and bang on about Beaver Builder on YouTube. I got a silver badge for swimming aged 11.

The designer in me says there should be more words here.
