So who are

the WordPress Bees?

The skinny, the inside scoop...

We’re a small team of expert developers who are passionate about what we do. We know WordPress inside out and love nothing more than working with clients to improve and build their websites.

The hive is headed by Christopher Hough who came up with ‘WordPress Bees’ as the trading name of the business ten years ago. Like any great Marvel story, Christopher was stung by a bee on his eye at the tender age of just 18 months old, causing him to develop extraordinary honey-based powers.*

* The childhood accident bit is true, the rest is legend back-story fable untrue. I bare no ill-will against the bees. In fact whilst I’d prefer to avoid any future bee related trauma, I remain actively worried about their well-being and I think everyone else should, too.

So that’s the Bee part, but why WordPress?

Think of WordPress Bees as a small, yet perfectly formed, web development shop specialising in building websites using the WordPress content management system.

There are a never ending array of benefits available for businesses that choose WordPress over other platforms. It is an incredibly easy to use website content management system (CMS); it ‘sits’ behind your website providing you with the ability to update pages, add and change images and create new blog posts at will. There is no waiting around for your web designer to fit you into their schedule. You can look after it yourself with just a little bit of knowledge.

But whilst super easy to use, WordPress is not to be underestimated – it is as powerful as you need it to be; the WordPress CMS can control a small website as comfortably as it can an online magazine, newspaper or ecommerce store – serving thousands of customers per day. Contact forms, maps, downloadable documents and even online course websites can run upon the impressive WordPress platform.

The whole team are passionate fans of WordPress, which is not surprising as it is used and trusted by 1 in 3 of all the websites online.

Why web development?

Before WordPress Bees came to life, Chris had been working in the web industry for several years. Having started as a developer for MoneySupermarket, his career path took him in many magical directions, providing many exciting opportunities, such as:

  • Leading the UK Search Engine Optimisation team for a large multi-national online marketing agency
  • Becoming an accidental affiliate manager and virtual fire-fighter
  • Working with the online team of the world’s largest insurance broker
  • Being awarded a Prince2 Practitioner certification

He also tweeted on behalf of one of the UK’s most popular celebrities too… thrilling times!

Throughout all of this there has been WordPress. After a happy stroll through a number of digital careers, Chris realised that WordPress development was something that he did better than most and it’s something that the team now works with every day. It is the content management system of choice for the world’s websites and a website framework that, for the past decade, we have lovingly prodded and poked, flexed and made it control content the WordPress Bees way.
