Five years ago today, I launched ClickWP to the world (with a Hello World post, no less). Back then, I didn’t even know if ClickWP would still exist in 2016. Therefore I am super grateful and humbled that we are not only still in business, but healthy as well.
To mark this occasion, I am happy to announce a new product and our first ever sale.
The Growing Needs of Website Owners
I started ClickWP because I saw a need for reliable and dependable WordPress support, so that business owners and small publishers could save time and avoid speed bumps with their websites. Our original website care plans offered backups, weekly maintenance and tech support and has served that need faithfully for the past 5 years.
But the landscape has evolved and I now notice the average WordPress user needs more. Website owners today know that need to grow an email list and focus on conversions in order to be successful. This means on top of a domain, hosting, theme, branding, and content, you also need a solution for email opt-in, registrations and payment forms, as well as professional landing pages that direct your visitors to sign up, buy or download.
The barrier to entry has grown higher, and the learning curve has grown steeper. In light of these reasons, I am excited to officially announce the Foundations Plan.
Introducing the Foundations Plan
Our new plan aims to help website owners meet the challenges of today by including a suite of essential business tools, on top of the requisite website care. Customers of this plan will have access to:
- Email list builder plugin
- Landing page builder plugin
- Contact & payment forms plugin
- Mobile-friendly website themes
You can use these tools right away, no need to worry about licenses and renewals. You’ll save time because we’ve curated these plugins and themes to ensure that they all integrate together smoothly.
Our ClickWP Caretakers will assist every new Foundations customer setup their website (or landing page) and email opt-in forms to launch a new and complete web presence in just days. In the coming months, we’ll even introduce education programs to empower our customers to take advantage of these tools more effectively.
And finally, you can add on a hosting package to your plan for as little as $5/mo. For that price you get premium hosting with SSL – you’ll be hard pressed to find a better deal elsewhere.
Our First Ever Sale
ClickWP has never had a sale before, so this is another first for us. For the next 5 weeks, save $50 off the setup fee for the Foundations Plan, in conjunction with our 5th anniversary.
I also want to offer our existing customers something extra, because ClickWP would not have achieved this milestone without you. Check your inboxes for exclusive customer-only offers.
Here’s To The Future
It’s still only October but I’m very excited about 2017. We have lots of plans, and finally the resources to carry them out. It feels like we’re just hitting our stride.
In closing I have to say that I wouldn’t have arrived at this milestone on my own. I want to thank Dana, the most senior member of the team, and to Joel and Buena at JSR Web Solutions. Most of all, I am truly thankful to all of our clients and friends for your business and support. ClickWP wouldn’t be here without you.
P.S. If you’re interested, I wrote a post with a more personal perspective on my blog.
