We’ll do our absolute best at all times to knock your socks off.
We give a shit about your WordPress website
You need help frequently, not always on big things, but you’re doing a lot and sometimes you just run our of time, expertise or patience. You want a seasoned WordPress developer you can talk to who can help you achieve what you need to get done; either doing it for you, or advising you on the best way to work with WordPress. WP Website backups and maintenance are an absolute must for you. If your website breaks, goes down or is otherwise unusable, this is a big frickin’ problem and not something you even want to think about (sorry for bringing it up). Our hands-on plan includes a couple hours of development time each month, which we can use to dive in to your site and help you action whatever you want to achieve. We add new features, improve what’s in place or just help you with content edits. Big job, little job. Custom code or WordPress plugin activation, we’re here for you.

We’re you’re go-to team for everyday website updates who ensures that your website is working as hard as it can – keeping it up, running and, perhaps most importantly, full of the features that foster visitor conversions.
This is a partnership, we work together, we maintain, update and improve your site over time leaving you free to concentrate on the important stuff – such as growing your business, expanding your customer base and improving your profit margins.
We work (and have worked) with many marketing and editorial teams to help them make the most of their WordPress websites. Over time we’ve crafted a number of monthly retainers that suit most people’s needs. We can handle adhoc amends to existing site content, create new sections for events, featured news, downloads and whitepapers, integrate WordPress with MailChimp, CRM systems, accounting systems, as well as helping with site content updates, blog posts and much, much more …
Our two monthly maintenance plans are listed above. We can discuss which retainer would be best suited to your exact needs so please get in touch and we can plan what needs to happen to get you from where you are now, to where you want to be (sometimes called Roadmapping).
We can help you format, plan, improve and codify your website’s content, making it easier than ever to manage and update your WordPress website.
Adding new features
“Wouldn’t it be good if …” – this is how a lot of our change requests start. “Your wish is our command” is how we end them, when we’re feeling whimsical. The rest of the time we just say “Sure, we can do that. No problem.” We can extend and improve the built-in functionality within WordPress, using plugins and custom code when necessary to make your WordPress website run the way you need it to.
Nothing is perfect and the WordPress CMS is no different. Occasionally things will break, or parts of your website will stop working as expected. The team at WPbees will be on-hand to figure out what’s misbehaving and get it all back on track.
A large part of our daily lives is writing and working with custom code. If you need something special, or need to change something that the WordPress dashboard won’t give you access to, let us know and we can dial-in to the Matrix Neo-style to get it done.
WordPress powers over 30% of the entire Internet. Can you imagine that?! How many websites is that? I salivate just thinking about it. But this isn’t about me, its about your website. A thriving WordPress ecosystem is like a large target for the nefarious types of the internet (think of them like Cypher from the Matrix. They’re not bad as such, just disillusioned, with little soul patches and shaved heads) So we make sure that Cypher and his cronies can’t easily patch into your website and take it over for themselves.
Honestly, do I need to say more? Ok.. I will: Every night we backup your website code and database. Why? I hear you ask. So that if anything unexpected happens, we have a copy of your site to rollback to. And not just a copy, but a verified, working copy; not like a poor xerox where the ink’s clearly running out and the colours aren’t as vibrant as they should be. An actual clone, like-for-like copy. Nothing missing.
You’ve heard of Parkinson’s law? Work expands to fill the time available for its completion. In other words, give yourself an hour to tidy the kitchen, it’ll take an hour. Give yourself only 10 minutes, low and behold, 10 minutes later you’re wondering what to do with the rest of your day. Anyway, over the past 10 years we’ve seen incredible advancements in broadband speed. Amazing truly. The Internet today is many multiples faster than it was. Which should mean that websites are now blisteringly fast too, but here comes along Parkinson with his rule book! Website’s are now fatter than they’ve ever been. This extra weight, their extra girth is affecting how quickly they load, despite the advancements in technology. We can help but your site on a strict diet and unlike those ab-machine posters, your website can still look great whilst still being a fraction of the size. running faster than ever before

We found working with Chris to be great! Communication was easy, Chris is quick to reply. Chris brings a level of enthusiasm, skill and helpfulness to each project.
Chris' level of professionalism is rivalled only by his technical knowledge of WordPress. He's a 'solutions man' and sees only challenges not problems. He goes on to see the relationship as a working mutual arrangement, never compromising finances or budgets down the line unexpectedly.
Chris has supported us on a number of projects, including a full WordPress site build requiring very close attention to detail. We were very impressed by his strong technical ability and comprehensive approach. He works quickly and accurately with a great attitude making him and is a welcome addition to our team. I look forward to working with him again, and would highly endorse him for other projects
WordPress Bees think about the user experience front end and back. It's great having a CMS, it's even better having one where it's been fully thought through how it will be used. I love the screencast training videos where you have taken the time to show how to use the WordPress CMS.
