Strategies To Level Up Your Web Development Business & Beat Isolation 🙄


In this video to talk about how you can level
up your word press website development business hi my name is Adam from WPCrafter.com where
I make WordPress videos for non-techies and if you enjoy the content in this video I’d
like to ask you to consider clicking on the subscribe button if you want to video notifications
is a little bell off to the right of the subscribe button you click on that and you too will
notify you when I have new videos made just for you so in this video working to talk about
its wealth primarily for people that are building websites for other people but it goes for
me I I don’t build a website for people anymore I have my own website that I always am trying
to improve and make as good as I possibly can make it so this video really talk about
I guess that is leveling up your business of building websites for people or if you’re
maybe a individual that is at home all the time working from home I think this video
were good for you and I actually been working from home solely from home for the last three
years my video Studios at home I pretty much a mid-home all of the time and so some of
the things that I want to talk about her really can help people in that situation as well
and so the first thing I want to talk about is plugging in that is the best thing that
I have found to level up your business of building website is plugging into the right
groups of people in the right types of content to really help get your mind out of the bubble
that you can easily find yourself into were all susceptible to that were we can just our
whole thinking just becomes inside a little bubble we got a kind of poke that bubble and
get outside of the bubble and so want to talk about some resources right now to help you
to do that and I guess that’s the main concept of this video is getting outside of that bubble
that we can sometimes put ourselves in especially if you are working from home and not in an
office with other individuals so first of all I want to talk about some resources for
learning and hearing about other web developers and what they’re doing successfully and a
great list of resources are some of these podcasts that you might find and I want to
share with you some the ones that I personally listen to what my favorites is from Lee Jackson
and his podcast is called WP innovator and I really love his insights and the different
content and the people he’s bringing on for this podcast and you can find this at his
website angled crown and essentially he has a web development and design business and
he has a wealth of knowledge and experience on that in different strategies and he’s bringing
people on that share their strategies and how they’re growing their business or their
web development businesses become even more successful I really appreciate that another
one is WP builds in this one is been primarily geared around the Beaver Builder community
the people that use Beaver Builder as a tool to build their website but is actually fine
for all kinds of different web developers are using all different kinds of tools he
they are actually the two folks that run this our big contributors in the Beaver Builder
community and there are really great guys and I actually listen to many of their different
podcast episodes that you can find here and you can find [email protected] I really like
them and another one is WP tonic and you can find [email protected] and I’ve actually
been a panelist on their podcast but it’s also a video or listening you could watch
the video version of it or you could listen to it and I’ve been on a couple of these lately
I was on 196 right here about landing page tools I was on 194 right here which was useful
WordPress plug-ins I’m going to miss the show this Friday it’s live every Friday but you
can come here and watch the recorded version or listen on iTunes or whatever what I like
that’s different about this show is there’s a panel of people so there’s lots of ideas
and lots of different ideas which is a very fun it’s a really good listen I know the topic
coming up this Friday is all about membership plug-ins and there’s gonna be some more topics
coming up about running a business on the WordPress ego system and so that is a place
where you can find me outside of my YouTube channel is it right here and you can kind
of hear my unscripted comments on things I have to make sure to watch my tongue can sometimes
say things that I probably wouldn’t say if I had thought through it and knew knowing
it’s good to be out there but that’s okay you can see the real me there right here on
WB tonic on Fridays next I want to talk about a more intimate way of plugging in in this
would be joining Facebook groups for the different products or services that you might use or
also the more broad Facebook group so all these podcasts I talked about here the WB
innovator podcast they have a Facebook group and it’s really a high-quality Facebook group
where you have people that are building websites for other people and you can ask questions
it’s probably one of my favorite smaller more intimate Facebook groups and WB bills I’m
actually not in their Facebook group but I know that they have one as well and the one
you’ll see me a lot of times and is right here it’s the Beaver Builder Facebook group
and I do have a link if you go to my website and click on my Beaver Builder resource link
it’s gonna be right here but I’ll put a link down below in the video description to it
and it’s funny I was actually looking at this the text I had here it’s is almost 8000 members
well when I actually first put this page up they were at 3000 members so it’s a highly
growing group in it’s not just about Beaver Builder and that’s what I like about this
group there’s a lot of high-end quality web developers that are really contributing back
and forth and it’s just a great way to bounce your ideas off of other people and see what
their experiences are and I really feel this plugging in is a really good thing especially
if you are work from home and with working at home comes isolation it helps you to feel
a little less isolated and as actually been one of my go to things I really have been
enjoying the various Facebook groups that you will find me in and there’s another one
as well for Elementor to page builder-based one but I really like the quality that I and
the experience in the WP innovator Facebook group and there’s a variety of them as well
and another thing that you could do is go to these things called word camps confess
I’ve never been to one but the one that I have up I’m actually going to be added to
and it’s actually not this week and it’s next weekend June 10 and 11th you can actually
see this a list of attendees right here in there I am I’m actually going to at 10 this
I’ve never been to one but I want to go there and I’m to get to meet a lot of people that
I’ve talked to on Facebook and I’m in a get to meet some of the developers and creators
of the products that I use the power my business for example here the people behind Beaver
Builder going to be there the people behind Divi are going to be there the people behind
the give plug in which I did a review on recently are going to be there and you can go here
and you can see this long list of people that are going to be there and if you’re actually
going to be there come and say hi I’m not in the know anyone really at all there I’m
going anyway and I’ll be there all weekend so deftly come and say hi to be good to meet
you and so so these were camps essentially what they are there organized and they’re
all over the world and it’s typically a weekend of events there is a around of speakers on
different topics and a lot of them have different tracts so you have like a beginner to WordPress
track that probably wouldn’t be you but then they have business tracks and that probably
would be you and it’s a great resource to meet people I haven’t been to one I know people
that have been to them and I’ve heard that they can also be a lot of fun hopefully I
won’t get into too much trouble now another resource is primarily going to be for people
that are in the business of building websites for other people and that’s over at WP elevation
and what they do is they have they only open it up I think three or four times per year
they probably have the most reputable highest quality in depth business training program
for web developers so they are actually you have opening enrollments right now I think
just opened up a little while ago and they also have a ton of free content that’s great
to go there and listen to they also have a podcast and I’ve listened to some of those
episodes as well but you can go and see right here it is a membership program and a blueprint
of strategies for structuring and growing your WordPress consultancy business and I
am not part of this membership program and the reason is because I don’t build websites
for other people but on my YouTube channel and on Facebook group I’m interacting with
people that are in the WordPress website building business and I see nothing but rave reviews
for this WP elevation training program but I think the real value in it well first of
all the value is in the actual training on how to structure your business and I think
what they are really daring you towards is opening your mind in product height using
your business and really having some structure in their some strategies to structure it in
a way that just makes sense of the building websites for people it’s there’s like no barriers
to entry right my neighbor can one day decide that they want to build websites for people
they can watch a video on YouTube learn how to use WordPress and say here’s so website
for this much money but there’s a lot more to successfully running a WordPress based
business like that and that is the strategies are and learn in this training program but
what I think that greater value in is in this is the structured men touring and the community
of people that are going through this process together so you can go to the website here
I’ll have a link down below and you can see everything that’s involved in the program
and there’s a lot of back-and-forth of all men I do know that they have lots of conference
calls were you can interact with the different instructors and the larger community you can
see right here the program also has 58 webinars six weekly grouping coaching calls just so
much to it but I think the real values get to be right here is in their private only
member members only Facebook group I think that’s where you’re really get the value out
of this program here to get it out of all of it obviously but I think that right there
is the money and they got a ton of resources and their documents resources marketing materials
everything you could want to really be serious about your business of building websites for
people this is really where that bubble is where you can easily find yourself in a bubble
and how to charge for things and how to structure things and you can just find yourself in this
bubble you really want to bust out of that bubble and see things in a broader view and
probably see a lot of areas where you’re leaving money on the table it’s definitely going to
be in the WP elevation training program soon come here I’ll give you link down below and
you can read all about it now I will tell you that it’s not a cheap program and that’s
actually good and bad right I mean who wants to spend a lot of money on something but for
your business and that this is really at this is really and I would have no hesitation joining
WP elevation if I was in the business of building websites for other people it’s pretty amazing
I would actually say the pricing right here it’s not cheap like I said so to purchase
the course it’s $1500 and they have a payment plan so the 12 month payment plan it’s only
$167 per month III find parting with a chunk of money $1500 that’s a lot of money to part
with I probably personally wouldn’t do that but I can easily see myself doing the 297
a month for six months or the 167 a month for 12 months for everything that it will
bring to your business I think your ROI meaning you’re investing this into your business would
be so high with this you will get so much more out of it on your business if you’re
serious about having a very successful business developing websites for other people so anyways
this is WP elevation I will have a link down below but I definitely want to encourage you
to at least take a look at it and see if it’s something for you but I’ve talked about a
lot of different resources in this video and I’m can add them all down below so you can
just click and go where you need to go or want to go and now I actually want to open
it up for you to kind of join in on this discussion in the comment section down below if there’s
something that I left out I know there are other podcasts I know there are other high
quality Facebook groups and there are other things and resources out there I want to ask
you to share them down below or maybe some strategies of how you have been able to kind
of plug in get out of the bubble and how you’ve been able to do that

  1. Thanks again for your valuable content – I know that breaking free of the "At Home" bubble and what it does to your thinking has been one of the biggest challenges I face – to be honest, I have found watching your video's a really great way to inject some clarity into my own thought processes.

  2. I'm about to join some local networking groups (like the Chamber of Commerce and a Young Professionals group). I've also made most my contacts volunteering. I volunteer at a domestic violence shelter, and have met a lot of well-connected people through those relationships.

  3. Really enjoyed this video Adam. What is it you are calling it? "Pluggin in"? Did I hear that right? It's certainly excellent advice that I have as you know benefit from myself.

    I'm fully intending to enrol on the next (after this one) WP Elevation. I'm absolutely intrigued. What is hilarious though is the effectiveness of their sales emails. Because I'm on the list and show some interest, it's like Troy Dean is just spending all day emailing me…of course it's not him directly doing that, but honestly… he knows how to tap into my subconscious. All the WP Elevation alumni I know personally have such a strong grounding in business strategy…they are easy to spot. I want in 😉

    Anyway – thanks again.
    Oh, and enjoy your first WordCamp. And you lucky guy – getting to meet the BB team… that's awesome! And yes…stay out of trouble… there are usually free "refreshments" in the evening 😉

  4. sir can u tell me.

    mine Wp website images look like corrupted but if I open that particular post then that image show. please to me to resolve my this problem. Thnku

  5. Hi Adam. I would say your videos are one of my top sources of info on the technical aspects of web design and I support your comments in this video about online learning. However, I would also like to add to Ogal Web Design's comment below which is that getting out of the bubble and overcoming isolation should not be done through online means alone. You are only ever going to meet fellow online geeks online. Unfortunately, most of our target market is in business in the real world with real world problems and little time to spare. The best way of meeting them is to go to places where they hang out. Standing up in a meeting and telling 30 or 40 business people how you can solve their problems is a very effective means of introducing yourself to potential clients and (very importantly) to potential collaborators and allies. People like to deal with people they already know and trust and are likely to prefer that to some unknown website builder they find online. My record so far this year is four business breakfasts in one week (I go to at least two every week) and a large number of coffee dates with key people and it is starting to pay off. I have met a number of new clients and allies who have skills I haven't got. I have also diversified into print brochure production to support website marketing efforts, but that's another story. 😉

  6. Thanks Adam
    I wanna know ur opinion on this..
    Can I build websites for people when I don't know SEO?
    I mean what the point if their site would be at the end of search engine list?
    Do all web designers do SEO?
    What do they promise their client?

    Thank u in advance.
