At this point in my journey, I have amassed a wealth of little tips that make building and managing a WordPress website a lot easier! Making mistakes is always the best way to learn and after making a few and learning along the way I thought I’d share my 4 top WordPress tips.

Nearly six months ago I wrote a post about our new onboarding process. With the help of Asana and Box, I had mapped out a way to make it even easier for clients to become part of the process of building their website.
As with everything in business (and in life) things have moved forward. Rather than using one platform to keep track of tasks and projects and one for sharing files, we now have an all-in-one solution. We have a platform that allows us and our clients to see ongoing tasks, read and sign proposals and contracts, share files…
It was a matter of days after I published the previous blog post and wrote about our commitment to work with charities that Livewire Youth Project got in touch with us.
Andy and his team needed help managing and maintaining their existing website. Running updates, checking for speed and uptime and preventing hacks and spam is a tricky set of tasks to manage.

In our recent blog post about ReviewForest, we wrote about the commitments we as a business are making to give back.
Not only do we now plant a tree for every review our clients provide for us, but we are also now promising to donate 2.5% of everything we earn from web design to charity.
We’ve signed up to Work For Good and will use their service to allow us and our clients to give back every time they get their perfect website!

Standing out in a crowded marketplace is a challenge we know about all too well! Sometimes the best way to stand out is to be bold.
Tim and his team at Lean Tree reached out to us back in January. Their website, which was built with Elementor, had been having some issues with downtime and was slightly too slow. After being recommended to reach out to us at Tiny Blue Rocket, I worked with him to initially fix the problems on their site.
With new hosting as a first priority, we immediately fixed the issues with website downtime. Then, we…
When running my business I try to constantly look for trends in new clients. What are the main reasons people come to us? What motivated them to choose an agency that uses WordPress and Elementor?
After a successful year of building many new websites for clients, the number 1 trend is clients coming to us after building their own website with Wix. We’ve had a lot of work from clients and businesses who are progressing upwards and want to switch from Wix to WordPress.
