The impact of the current public health crisis is affecting businesses across the globe and how they operate, with more and more companies managing their organizations from home. Since its inception, WebDevStudios (WDS) has always been a 100% distributed company, with all of our teams working remotely.
For us, working from home has consistently been the norm. As such, the necessary changes happening today have not impacted our operations. We continue to build, maintain, and support amazing WordPress websites without interruption. We know WordPress and we know remote work. WDS is grateful to share our expertise in both these fields to help our valued clients and the WordPress community as much as we can.

Think of as a virtual art and museum tour from home.

Your website is your biggest opportunity to stay connected with your customers, especially now. Here are some other cool ideas to try.
Video Content - Whether a tutorial for using your product or a showcase of product features and benefits, video content is always a guaranteed method for engaging your customers.
Create a Community - Build a place for your loyal customers to connect with one another. You may think your Facebook Page is a good spot for that, but wouldn't you rather keep that traffic on your own website? Give your consumers a forum where they can share their enthusiasm for your product or service.
Start a Podcast - Podcasts are hot, and with most everyone staying home, people are searching for entertaining and educational content. While, yes, podcasts are often downloaded from third-party platforms, you can still upload and feature yours on your website, thus, keeping your customers engaged and remaining on your site.
