A few months ago, I came to the conclusion that Andrew Does Web Design is not something I want to pursue in the way that I have been pursuing it the past several years. The brand has been great, and it has helped land me new work and clients, but it just seemed that the brand was no longer reflective of the work I am doing for my clients, along with the work I am pursuing further in my endeavors. Here’s what I am doing instead.
My Unexpected Endeavor
In the last couple of years, my work has been shifting more and more toward website management and maintenance. I maintain a full time contract with one of the largest full-service marketing agencies in the world consulting with Fortune 500 companies on how they can better leverage their website resources and optimize their content delivery. This leaves me less time to dedicate toward designing and building full websites for clients. While I will still take this on case by case, it has been and continues to be a lesser focus of the work I am doing with smaller clients. The work I do that is benefiting my clients most is helping them make sure their existing websites are running at optimal levels. They deliver content in meaningful ways, they pull higher in search rankings, and they have sites that convert better than their competitors. While I never intended to make doing this my full service focus, it became evident that it is best for business and in my personal life for me to do so.
Say Hello to Amped WordPress Management
With all of the above in mind, Andrew Does Web Design is no longer a focus of business (but don’t worry, it’s not going away). Swing by to say hello to Amped WordPress Management! All of Andrew Does Web Design’s business services are now shifting over to my new company Amped WordPress Management (AmpedWP for short). There I will be operating all of my existing services (though more sparingly), with a more dedicated focus on helping businesses manage their WordPress websites. Monthly subscription and hourly plans will be available based on the service desired. Come let my new team (that’s right, it’s more than just me now) and me get an audit run on your site and get you set up with the perfect plan for your needs. Check out how it works here. If you’re social, give the page a follow on LinkedIn. If you want to score a free resource to learn more about protecting your website and how website management can help you out, sign up for my whitepaper. Basically, show me all the love you can.
I’m Loving It
So far, the response has been pretty good. I’ve seen a pretty solid amount of traffic flowing through the site and made a couple new connections, and it’s only been about 2 weeks. The vibe I’m getting is that this was the right path for me to follow and it will help my family and me out considerably. Thanks for all the love and support.
So What’s Happening with Andrew Does Web Design?
Andrew Does Web Design is no longer what it was, but that doesn’t mean it’s going away. Andrew Does Web Design will now be acting as my personal site to explore what’s happening in projects and in the web world I see from day to day. It will feature thought-pieces, industry news shares, work features, and content that can hopefully be helpful to getting others motivated to improve their website. Who knows? Maybe I’ll even have a course or two release some time. Expect an overhaul to the site in the near future to reflect the changes I’ve made to the site and the content and audiences it will serve.
