Kinsta hosting on GoCloud with Brian Jackson - WP Builds WordPress podcast

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.

149 – Marketing funnels don’t exist!

Marketing funnels don’t exist! - WP Builds WordPress Podcast

This discussion is about marketing, and it has a very click-bait title! It’s probably safe to say that we are not experts in marketing and certainly not marketing funnels. Nevertheless we thought we would chat about this and why we might need to get better a digital marketing for ourselves and clients and where WordPress could help with that. What’s different about this discussion is that really is an introduction to a series of discussions we will have based on a book called Watertight Marketing by Bryony Thomas. Listen to this episode to find out more…

148 – Spinning up a WordPress optimised server in minutes with Spinup WP

Spinning up a WordPress optimised server in minutes with Spinup WP - WP Builds WordPress podcast

This is a little bit different. Today we talk to Brad Touesnard from Delicious Brains about Spinup WP their new service which aims to make it trivially simple to get your WordPress website up and running on a cloud hosting provider – in fact just about anywhere. You login to their platform, fill out a few form fields and then go and grab a coffee. By the time that you’re done your WordPress optimised server will be ready and just waiting to get WordPress installed on it. This all sounds so simple, but there is a very large amount of heavy lifting going on in the background, heavy lifting that you’d have to learn and do your self. If you’ve ever wanted to install WordPress on a cloud provider, then check this podcast out…

147 – What does it mean to fail?

What does it mean to fail? - WP Builds WordPress podcast

Do you think that you’re a success as a WordPress professional? Have you got everything sorted out and working just how you like it? Perhaps yes, but possibly no! What exactly do we mean by failure? Is it a measure of how much we earn, the kind of work that we are able to do? Perhaps it’s the amount of free time that our work allows us to have at our disposal. Failure is not so easy to pin down. Can we prevent it and plan ahead, put cash aside for a rainy day. Maybe failure is out of our control – the bad boss or the slowing economy. We chat through this whole topic and see what it is that we strive for and how we’ve approached these problems in the past.

145 – Should we use templates more?

Should we use templates more? - WP Builds WordPress podcast

Times have changed… It used to be that creating websites was really tedious. It took hours to get anything to go where you wanted it. Along came WordPress themes and life got a little easier, well sometimes, and then we got Page Builders with their rows and modules. Now you can get templates for just about anything and can have sites built in a matter of hours, but should we do it this way? Should we be using other people’s templates or should we be doing all this from the group up? Perhaps there is a middle way? Tweaking what you find so that the internet does not all look the same!

Get paid with likes... the Like Coin with Kin Ko - WP Builds WordPress podcast

If you create content you know that it’s nice to be rewarded for that. The Like Coin is a Block Chain idea which might make this possible. People click a button, you get paid!

Only doing what you're good at - WP Builds WordPress podcast

So we all build websites. Perhaps we don’t. Perhaps we’re just involved with WordPress as a marketing expert, or a graphic designer. WordPress is useful to a whole slew of different job types which is great, but can also be a burden. What I mean by that is that there are so many hats that you can wear in the WordPress space, so many jobs that are needed to get a website up, running and maintained, that it can be hard to keep up. How do we do that…
