Hi. I’m Barbara.
I am a WordPress troubleshooter and coach with a focus on solving tech problems for digital agencies, web designers, and virtual assistants.
I can solve a variety of WordPress problems including those related to:
- themes and plugins
- error messages, PHP errors, or the white screen (of death!)
- HTTPS implementation
- WooCommerce, Wishlist Member, Easy Digital Downloads, AppPresser and more
- email and server issues
- creating automated backups and/ or restoring backups
- moving old PHP code to PHP 7.x
- moving to a new host or changing domain names
My skills are technical. I’m handy with PHP, CSS, and HTML. I have a B.S. in Information & Computer Science from University of California, Irvine that I got so long ago (1976), you’re probably surprised that we even had computers back then! I can make your site run better, faster, and abolish thorny problems. I can solve problems created by updates, or perform updates in a safe fashion.
WordPress Maintenance Plans
I provide three different WordPress maintenance plans that include updates, backup, and security scans.
WordPress Site Audit
I will review your site’s SEO, security, HTTPS implementation, mobile-friendliness, plugins, structure, content, hosting, and performance. The audit will include a first pass at improving your site, and provide a roadmap (with pricing) for further improvement. We will review the items via a video conference, and you will be able to prioritize and choose which roadmap items you want me to implement. The site audit includes 1 month of Maintenance Plus.
If you want to improve your WordPress skills (so that you can offer lucrative WordPress support and maintenance to your clients), I offer remote coaching sessions with screen sharing. I also am working on a WordPress Tech coaching package for virtual assistants. Sign up for my newsletter to be notified when this is available.
What I Don’t Do
I’m not a graphic designer. If you are not a designer either, and you’d like me to spearhead your new website, I will work with a professional Web Designer to create your site design.
Testimonials, Reviews, and Comments
Barbara is Outstanding!
Barbara was on time, on budget, and hit the bullseye. She could literally write the book titled, “How to be a complete WordPress resource from A to Z.” Her professionalism, WordPress knowledge-base, can-do attitude, hands-on instruction, and thoroughness on a scale of one to ten, is a clear “10.” I’ve been working on websites since 2005 (yes, they had websites that long ago), and rarely have I encountered such a seamless way to solve my site’s most challenging problems.
Many say they are experts at WordPress, and I can assure you Barbara by far stands out of the crowd. Thank you Barbara, I look forward to working with you again soon.
I wish I would have been introduced to you sooner!
Thank you so much for fixing that. I appreciate your help and work. I wish I would have been introduced to you sooner!
