Designing a Process that Gets Things Done

Tools and Tips to Exceed Expectations and Still Keep Your Sanity

NOTE: So excited to be speaking at this year’s WordCamp Orlando 2014. Below is a copy of my presentation slides.

As a small shop we are often tempted to start from scratch every time with each new project. We think we need completely unique design and code. Meanwhile, all our clients want are clean, effective websites, that go live NOW. (Oh, and they need to have all the bells and whistles too.)

The beauty of WordPress is in its strength of community, resources and effectiveness. But without a plan in place, our projects can slow down and stall under the weight of all those possibilities.

Learn how to jumpstart your process by NOT starting from zero each time. You’ll learn about the power of frameworks, child themes, templates, design inspiration, preferred plugins, integration services and quality research to build a custom workflow that speeds up design and development. It makes for happy clients โ€“ and a happy you!
