Oh no, not me. Here are people I suggest you hire if you need help, though! These are all people or companies I know, in one way or another, and have vetted them (which is why, if you asked me to add you and I have not, it’s because I’m double checking! I’m picky!). Feel free to tell them ‘Ipstenu’ sent you.
Consultants / Consulting Companies
- Amy Hendrix
One-woman dynamo of designer/developer fabulousness. No really. She’s amazing.
- Bluelime Media
Graphic design, WordPress, and themes. I suck at themes. Christine most certainly does not!
Need to learn WP? Or learn someone WP? Bob can help!
Not a typo! Cubecolour is a web design and development agency run by Michael Atkins in Sutton, South London. See?
One of the best admins I ever have the privilege to call in the middle of the night, Benny is amazing. A depth of server knowledge I wish I had!
Design, Development, WordPress. Gil does some pretty awesome themes.
- J. Aaron Eaton
Highly recommended by people I know well and trust.
- Kim Woodbridge – (anti) Social Development
Blog upgrades and extras are her forte. If you want to spend more time blogging and less time fiddling with your templates and plugins, Kim can help.
- The Online Strategy House
The phrase “holistic online marketing strategies” sounds just left of witchcraft, but anyone who says they know there isn’t one perfect way is definitely a good SEO resource!
Web designs for small businesses with big dreams.
- Plugged In Consulting
Full Service Web Development & SEO Firm. They can do WordPress, of course, and are on my VERY short list of people I’m willing to call ‘SEO experts.’
- Stephanie Leary
Are books about WP not a good enough cred for you?
- Wendy Cholbi
She gets it. She just does. Okay. She all but holds your hand while you cross the street.
- WP Fangirl
She fangirls, but she gets it done right!
Again, on my short list for actual ‘SEO Experts’, Yoast gets it. If you’re in need of serious SEO help, he’s your man.
Got a bigger project?
Run by some of the weirdest smart people I know, they can get your site looking amazeballs, and they spend time improving WP!
High quality web design and WordPress development by some awesome people I know.
Finally, WordPress has an ‘official’ site called Code Poet which is a directory of WordPress professionals, web designers, and developers.
There are very few theme shops I trust enough to buy their stuff. The rest are probably okay, but these three I’ve bought themes from and would do so again.
Need a good community place to post your ‘Help me!’ cries? Those exist too!
