Introducing ReadyPress! After many months of development and hair pulling, we are finally ready to bring you the first publicly available version of ReadyPress. Designed to drastically simplify and improve the process for those getting started with WordPress and web design in general, we have done a lot of homework on what is required to get from nothing to something very quickly.
ReadyPress is a subscription based service which bundles together all of the necessary components of a WordPress website, and in fact, everything you need to get your business online. Included in the subscription is:
ReadyPress started off as an internal project inside parent company Rope Digital and was assembled
Services such as Elementor and its various 3rd party add-ons have been a real game changer for WordPress sites over the last 18 months or so. They have opened up a whole new world of opportunities for designers and developers to create amazing websites inside WordPress, and many successfully freelancers and agencies have built a healthy pipeline of sales off the back of it. Awesome! But for those who lack the technical knowledge, or are looking for a quick start solution have often found themselves a bit stuck or unable to bridge the gap.
The site builders of the world (Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, etc) have become the go-to place for many DIY website creators. (i.e. small business owners) but support groups, forums, Facebook posts, the community at large all agree that WordPress continues to be the platform to build your website. Why? Because its open, supported, maintained, cheap, flexible and frankly has the capability to do anything you need it to. There’s no question it’s awesome, but for the layperson out there, there is still a barrier to entry which is difficult to overcome.
Hosting, plugins, themes, templates, security, domains, caching, the terms go on and on. Some someone with the relatively simple objective of “I just want to design my site” there is still lots to consider. Where do I host it, who’s the best one, how much does it cost, what are plugins, what theme is best, is it secure, what the hell is a permalink anyway? etc, etc. All of this leads many to be confused and overwhelmed with the whole concept of designing a simple website for their small business, and often paying someone thousands of dollars is out of the question.
…so, we thought we could make the whole process more simple. All of those things mentioned before are done for you as soon as you signup to ReadyPress. In fact, here is a list of everything we do :
If all goes well (and it always does), you get your site all setup and ready for you in about 2 minutes. Fully hosted and ready to go.
We genuinely believe that creating a website with ReadyPress is the fastest possible way to get a fully functioning website up and running, and we would invite you to have a go and see for yourself.
