In this week's episode, I talk with Aleksander Kuczek and Brad Morrison about WordPress site maintenance.
Alex runs a SaaS service (PerfectDashboard.com) and Brad runs a WordPress support services (GoWP.com). We discussed all about the ups-and-downs of maintaining thousands of sites. Which plugins break the most sites? How to make sure nothing goes wrong when running thousands of updates?
Both Aleksander and Brad moved to site maintenance after realizing how hard it was to run an agency. We mentioned Jason Cohen's article, the unfortunate math behind consulting companies.
Towards the end of the podcast, Aleksander and Brad share what they've learned about the platforms competing with WordPress. Aleksander runs a scanner to find out where people go when they leave his service? Do you they go to Drupal, Squarespace, Wix, or somewhere else?
