It’s been a busy few months but SprintWP is now available in Australia!
More than 10 years ago I launched RPM Interactive, a small consultancy to work with small businesses in the UK and Ireland helping them develop their digital presence. Times were tough with the Global Financial Crisis in full swing. In the early days what became abundantly clear was that there was a clear gap in the market for businesses looking to launch a website that simply didn’t know where to start.
Here are some of the things that became pretty clear early on:
- There are an abundance of generic web hosts that will sell you cheap web hosting.
- Most of these web hosts have poor frontline support that can’t answer your questions.
- When left to inexperienced site owners, WordPress can become a slow bloated confusing mess.
The other thing that was clear… if you are a small to medium sized business you are at a disadvantage when it comes to your digital footprint from the get go. So called ‘Managed WordPress’ companies are really just businesses that offer an easy way to install WordPress. If you are lucky they have marginally better infrastructure but often it’s pretty much the same as any old web host package.
- Will they help make sure you keep your plugins up to date? No.
- Can they help answer questions on how best to optimise WooCommerce? Not really.
- Are they anything more than just a basic web host with frills? We’re looking at you GoDaddy.
The reality is you still needed to go find someone to host your business email accounts. You probably don’t know what DNS is but you would probably be using the average DNS you got with your domain. If you tried to solve why your WordPress website was slow you’d end up down a rabbit hold of caching plugins when all you wanted to do was run your business… and don’t get us stared on finding an email marketing platform.
SprintWP is the evolution of what I started working on 10 years ago. SprintWP levels the playing field. How do we do it?
