  • Why you shouldn't delete your marketplace store(s), even if you have your own


    Many early e-commerce merchants (and you may be among them) start out on a marketplace platform. We mentioned Ebay, Etsy, and Depop in our most recent chat about international e-commerce, but there are others—even Amazon, the veritable Goliath of all things e-commerce, is, in large part, a platform for small independent vendors (this was one of Amazon’s original distinguishing features, back when its Marketplace was called « zShops» at its launch in 1999). Marketplaces give you few opportunities for propagating your personal brand, and aren’t ideal for developing a close relationship with your customers—these are the principal cons of such platforms when compared to an independent store site, which you, the store and site-owner, autonomously manage and can tailor to your own goals and ideas. But marketplaces also provide some pretty significant advantages, particularly in the domains of traffic acquisition and notoriety among consumer communities. It’s all in the algorithmsI Since a marketplace essentially acts as a dedicated search engine for products, yours will be more likely to appear on the searches of sincerely interested customers than
  • Pagely and Managed WordPress – 10 years strong.


    Ten years ago this month, we launched Pagely and kicked off what has grown into the $2-3 Billion dollar channel known commonly as Managed WordPress Hosting. At the time, people questioned the need for the services they all now take for granted, and which are increasingly becoming commoditized. Over the last decade, the wider WordPress ecosystem has clearly benefited from faster and more secure websites, better deployment workflows, and knowledgeable, WordPress-specific technical support. I’d wager to say the wider hosting market, in general, has also taken notice, and adapted to serve a more discerning clientele that has come to expect more than Level 1 call center upsells when interacting with their host. It’s been an exciting, and at times terrifying, journey for Sally and I, as we’ve put our efforts towards building a product, and then building a company. We’ve become parents during this time and watched as our employees started or expanded their own families. We’ve seen competitors enter, grow, and dominate wide segments of the market. We’ve also stayed true to our simple philosophy of “business is personal” and have endeavored to
  • The Best WordPress Security Plugins of 2019


    For a variety of reasons WordPress sites are targeted by hackers. This makes addressing security vulnerabilities a critical aspect of managing a WordPress website. WordPress attacks are not an isolated issue that only affects popular sites — you can’t avoid them simply by being a small, relatively unknown website. If your site runs on WordPress, it is safe to assume it will be targeted at some point. A compromised site could be an inconvenience or it could be business-ending if it leads to a customer data leak. To protect your site from being compromised, you should install (and correctly configure!) WordPress security plugins to cover the vulnerabilities your host doesn’t handle for you. If you’re not using a good Managed WordPress Host (like us), chances are good that your site needs a couple of extra security plugins to add WordPress-specific security defenses. Thankfully, there are a wide variety of excellent WordPress plugins available to help with everything from authentication to zipping and sending automated backups into the cloud. In this post, we help you choose the best WordPress security solutions for your website by listing some of the most popular
  • Working for WebDevStudios (After Self-Employment)


    After eight years of self-employment, I started working for WebDevStudios (WDS) earlier this year. Officially, I started on April 1, 2019, which, if you’re in the United States (or other Western or European countries) or are familiar with our holidays, you know is dubbed as April Fool’s Day. Given how much fun I have on Twitter with others who work with WordPress, including those who already work here, this seemed like an appropriate day to get started. It’s been almost six months since I’ve been here at WDS, and during that time, I’ve had the opportunity to get acclimated to the team, work on a wide variety of projects, and do some really interesting things. But for as much as I love blogging and as much as WDS urges us to do so, I’ve not actually talked a lot about my time here. Given that I had some time during our monthly 5FTF, I thought it’d be a good moment to share what it’s like moving from self-employment to working from WebDevStudios, and what to expect if you’re considering working here (because we are hiring!). Working for WebDevStudios The whole story leading up to my working at WDS actually begins with me, my self-employment,
