Welcome to WP Site Care!
I have to tell you that I’m so ridiculously excited to have you here and for the start of this new venture. I’ve been supporting and building websites in the WordPress community for about 3 years now, and I feel like my experience combined with a passion to continue learning and provide stellar service have finally reached a level that is going to allow WP Site Care do some pretty remarkable things.
For a long time I’ve noticed a disconnect among developers, business owners, online publishers, and webhosts. Clients who purchase websites immediately go back to the developer who built it only to get crickets. Webhosts get frustrated when an end-user submits a support ticket that may as well be written in Japanese (considering it’s not a Japanese support forum :), and developers and designers want to focus on the creation of new projects, not the maintenance and upkeep of old ones.
That’s why I decided WP Site Care was a model that will benefit everyone involved. Think of it as a concierge service of sorts. We do everything we can to make technology an asset, not a barrier.
We understand developers
We’ve designed and developed enough websites to understand what developers are looking for in an ideal work environment. It’s hard enough to stay focused on active projects, let alone manage all of the inbound mail for “little tweaks” past clients want done. We’re in the process of building some cool packages specifically for developers so stay tuned for that.
We understand how to do technical WordPress support
We also have experience in the webhosting and customer support game. We understand that 90% of the time the hardest part of finding a resolution is identifying the specific issues. Web hosts don’t understand WordPress support, but we do. We’ve been doing this on a smaller scale for a while now and have found that because we’re able to identify and communicate the exact issues more quickly, we’re able to get problems fixed a whole lot faster.
We understand business owners and publishers
Having owned businesses previously, I know personally how frustrating it can be when technology gets in the way of a sales goal or completing a task. I’ve also been a blogger for a long time and understand the feeling of “all I want to do is write this stupid post. WORK WITH ME INTERNET!” Our solution is to take a proactive approach. Think of us as Jiffy Lube or eating a balanced diet. Working with us means you’re making an investment today to avoid catastrophic costs or issues down the road. We do our best to keep bad stuff from happening in the first place. Not only that, we’re invested in your goals and want to do whatever we can to make your website help you achieve them.
The last thing I wanted to cover during this launch post is our dedication to keeping our users informed. Even though we take care of most of the dirty work, we still want all of you to have the resources you need to learn more about WordPress if you want to. That’s why we’ll be publishing weekly tutorials for some common and not-so-common tasks in WordPress. We’ll also be releasing a free video tutorials. If you’d like to receive those posts, or get details on promotions we’ll be running, you can put your email in the box at the bottom of this post.
We have a lot of really fun things planned and we couldn’t be more excited to get started. We want to establish ourselves as the company that listens, so if you ever have thoughts on how we can improve, tweet us or shoot us a message. If we end up adding your idea to our business, we’ll send you 50 bucks.
Finally, what would a launch post be without something free? And why don’t we make it something awesome?
