Welcome to the world of freelancing!
Whether you’ve quit your full-time job or are just looking to make a little extra dough with a new side-hustle, freelancing in the WordPress space can be a great way to establish yourself as a reliable webmaster.
For me what makes a company great is the people who work there. The key to success lies in that you not only work together, you also bond together in your mission and make it fun. You joke and laugh together as you create products you are proud of. I am Bojana Milosevic, the creative whiz of the Marketing team, and I recognize that laughter and fun on the job can make a difference in the way the job is done. I trust the people I work for, I enjoy the people I work with and I believe the greatness of any company cannot be solely measured by the performance metrics.
Communicating with your team, especially if some members are remote, can be difficult at times. Making sure that everyone is on task, understands the objective, and receives the right information at the right time can quickly become cumbersome and confusing. Especially if you have been sharing task related information via good old-fashioned email.
Last week we wrote the Safe Updates announcement and why you should be excited about it. Today I am happy to announce launch of Safe Updates – an automated process that ensures your update of WordPress core, plugins and themes is safer than ever.
Here at ManageWP we are huge advocates of all-in-one. Come to one place and get all of your WordPress website management work done, and now we found a soulmate in social media. Meet Social Web Suite, our friends from home, who have created a place that will meet all of your social media needs. I sat down with the co-founders Tina Todorovic and Dejan Markovic, who are passionate WordPressers, and talked about their love for the WordPress Community, their work-life balance in Toronto, and of course their brand new product Social Web Suite.
If there’s one thing I really hate doing, it’s updates. It’s important to keep everything up to date, but it also eats up a lot of your time: if the update itself does not fail, you still need to make sure the website did not break in so many wonderful ways. So for the past several months we’ve been working on a better way to update WordPress websites. We call it Safe Updates.
It was pretty hectic during the first quarter here at ManageWP. The number of active customers has almost doubled. The Customer Happiness team has 4 new members, we have organized 3 WordPress Academies, have been on more than 10 WordPress meetups and visited WordCamp London. Our engineering team has resolved 243 issues you reported, ManageWP dashboard has been optimized, websites sync and load time are reduced by more than 60%, new features for WordPress Multisite networks (Backup,Clone, and Restore) are released. All of this would not have been possible without your feedback and support.
Creating a monthly maintenance plan for your WordPress sites requires organizing the tasks you perform on a daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly basis into a few main categories; Backups, WordPress Core Updates, Plugin Maintenance ,Theme Maintenance, Overall Site Health and Content Health.
Free Client Report localization is now possible in ManageWP. From now on you are able to choose what language you want your Client Report to be generated in. For now we have 11 exciting languages available, but this is just the beginning. You can expect more languages to come.
