293 – Understanding the client’s training needs

Understanding the client’s training needs - WP Builds Weekly WordPress Podcast #293

Welcome to another in the Business Bootcamp series where we relearn everything we know about building WordPress sites, and running a web design business from start to finish. We are taking contrasting approaches to getting our new businesses running and our first client’s site built. Today we’re talking about what you, or don’t do when handing over the site in terms of training. Do you prepare reams and reams of documents which carefully outline the ways to achieve all-the-things, and hand it to them in a big binder? Do you make videos for the client so that they can see what they need to do? Perhaps you react after the fact and wait until the client comes to you with specific queries, which you answer one at a time? Or maybe, just maybe, you don’t do much at all and hope that the client figures it all out for themselves and leaves you alone to get on with the next website? Whatever it is, we’d love for you to listen to the podcast and then leave us a comment about how your process differs or aligns with ours.

106 - With the right tools and guidance, anyone can design a great site with Mor Cohen

This week we have Mor Cohen on from Washington State in America and she’s with us because she has a new course that she’s launching called “The GeneratePress and Elementor Design Course”. This course is designed for people like me, and when I say that it’s unlikely that you need this course as much as I do because I have the design skills of a peanut! I can see what makes a design good, and I can appreciate a good design, but I cannot seem to be able to make a good design. That stuff is hard, or so I thought. Mor thinks otherwise!

A wonderfully frank interview with Troy Dean about what makes him tick!

This week we chat to the man who in the world of WordPress needs no introduction… Troy Dean. He’s become an important figure in our community and is a great podcast guest who has a lot of great advice. Of course, you’ll know about Troy from his very successful projects such as WP Elevation and Rock Star Empires. His courses have inspired many people (me included) to really take a long look at their WordPress businesses and think about how they could become more profitable. He’s a great speaker, with that rare ability to speak at great length and be authoritative at the same time.
