Building websites and WordPress blogs ain’t what it used to be, I’m telling ya! As development on several platforms expands and progress – our clients are seeing some great new uses of these platforms all over the place! Not everyone is happy with the typical blog framework anyore of content on the left, sidebar on the right with the usual Recent Posts, Categories, Archives, Blogroll…and navigation menu on the top.
That is sooooo…. early 2000, isn’t it? We’re looking at a new generation of clients who are seeing phenomenal things happening in the areas of CMS developent and progress adn they are thinking out of the box….things like “Well, I saw a WordPress blog overe here (give sample link) and it has this cool thing where it does THIS… I’d like to see if I can do that, but I want to extend those ideas and maybe have it also do this, that and this other thing… Cool??”
Very cool.. but it’s something that requires some custom development – let’s see what we can do!
This is exciting stuff and it inspires us to keep thinking outside of that boring box toward the effort of creating some really cool stuff. And we’re seeing this more and more.. so our projects keep getting bigger and bigger.
We’re finding that we’re bringing in some talented professionals and consultants to help our clients realize their dream to handle some of the overflow on projects to keep them humming along smoothly. Folks such as:
- WordPress Developers – - these folks can program custom stuff for our clients, maybe the creation of custom plugins to create a user/reader experience that suits their exact needs on what they need to have on their sites.
- Real SEO Consultants – - helping our clients with search engine marketing and placement.
- Illustrators/Artists – sometimes our clients are looking for special drawings and renderings of themselves… their cat… their house… their toenail.. whatever the needs of our clients are
The people we’ve been referring to, lately, are very busy, so we need to expand our referral list in these areas. Let me be clear on this – - I’m not seeking designers, CSS gurus or WP/EE/MT themers, we’ve got that part covered!
Simply put, we’d like to put our clients together with experienced and talented professionals in these areas of expertise: WordPress development (custom plugin development), Custom Scripts and programming, SEO Consultancy Services, Illustrators/Artists who can create quality, web-ready artwork and/or vector illustration services. It’s hard to find really good folks who aren’t already so slammed with work that they can’t possibly take on any new client referrals. Good for them… not so good for us and our clients!
Sure, our clients can search these folks out for themselves… however, we’d like to put them together with people who are going to be able to provide the services they’re looking for. Our only benefit: building a referral list of talented folks who can help our clients realize their goals. We will not ask for referral bonuses… just good, quality and dependable service and solid outcomes for our clients.
So, I’m leaving this comment thread open to anyone who fits the bill… or if you know someone… or know someone who knows someone… ya get my drift?
