GreenMellen invited three local WordPress-focused business owners to join us at our most recent Meetup to discuss various aspects of owning a business. Fill out the form below to check out the full recording of the Meetup and learn answers to questions such as:
- How did WordPress impact the growth of your business?
- What is your strategy behind pricing?
- How did you grow your business to where it is today, and where are you going from here?
- How do you find new clients?
Meet our awesome business panel:
Mickey Mellen is a partner at GreenMellen Media and lead the discussion. GreenMellen is a five person digital marketing agency that has been using WordPress for many years and uses it when creating all of their new websites.
Aaron Reimann is the the co-founder of Sideways8, a WordPress design and development agency. Sideways8 has been continually expanding their team and Aaron shared his thoughts on how to handle growth.
Chris Shull is the force behind Presence Marketing Group. Chris is essentially a one-person shop (rather than an agency) and spoke to the challenges and opportunities involved in staying solo while still doing awesome work on a variety of projects.
Jenny Munn is an SEO Consultant who provides SEO auditing, training, and consulting services to in-house marketers and small to mid-sized organizations in Atlanta and nationwide. Jenny can be found at JennyMunn.com. Unlike Aaron and Chris, Jenny doesn’t build websites. However, she has used WordPress to help grow her business for many years and brings a different perspective to how WordPress can help your business.
Check out the tools our panel mentions throughout the discussion:
The “pause clause” that Ali mentioned:
Client Deliverables: If a client deliverable — such as input, approvals, or payment — is late more than 10 business days the project will be considered “on hold.” Once the deliverable is received and the project is re-activated it will be rescheduled based on GreenMellen’s current workload and availability. Just to say it loud and clear, it could be weeks to get you back in the system if the project is put on hold.
