Dear Agency Owner,
If you don’t want to hire full-time developers but you still want to grow your design agency without risking your reputation, then this is the most exciting message you’ll read today.
Here’s why: my name is Umar Bahadoor, and not so long ago I discovered that most freelancers online were full of crap. This is especially true with web developers on freelancing platforms. For reasons that I could never understand, they would often ghost on their clients in the middle of a project. And if they did not disappear, their results would often be sub-par.
I experienced this first-hand.
See, before having my own team, I used to freelance as a WordPress web developer, those were the days when WordPress was still in its infancy. Anyways, when I got too much work, I used to send it to other developers. But, more often than not…
I would be really shocked by the results!
The end results looked nothing like the designs that I sent them. The sites were not adapted for mobiles and tablets, and there was absolutely no optimisation at all. It’s like most of these other freelancers tried to get away with minimum effort.
When I asked for revisions or simply asked them to actually complete the work, they’d come up with a plethora of excuses and would eventually ask more money to get it done.
At first, I thought that I was simply unlucky.
So, I tried many others — at varying price points — the results were almost always the same. I did find a couple who were really good at what they do, but they were always booked in advance and could not always take my projects.
What’s even worst is that since my clients depended on me to meet their deadlines, I often had to stay up all night to re-do the work. I was desperate for a solution, a solution that would not only help me but also all the other people who might need WordPress development services. So, I’ve come up with a process to find the best development teams, and I’ve created a guide that I gave away for free.
However many of my clients did not want a guide.
They wanted me to “just get it done”.
I had to come up with something else. That’s when I created PeachyCode, a service dedicated to helping agencies convert their designs into fully functional WordPress sites.
I’ve decided to fix all the issues that agencies typically encounter with freelancers. No more ghosting, no more low-quality results, and most importantly a clear channel for communications and feedback.
I have decided that it will be a fixed-price service so that you don’t have to worry about hourly rates.
I’ve also added a unique guarantee that no one else can offer. If you are not 100% satisfied with our work, we’ll keep working on it until you are fully satisfied, AND we’ll also give you back your money. This is truly unique. Others may give you your money back, but they will state they you can’t use their code. Not us, we’ll continue working until you are satisfied, even if we won’t be paid.
The reason I can have this guarantee is due to the fact that I’m extremely confident in my team.
There’s just one caveat, we are still growing and we only work on a few projects in parallel to make sure that we always deliver websites that perfectly match your designs. The only way to work on more projects is to hire additional full-time developers. (Yes, all my developers are full-time employees, they can’t just leave without a notice…)
To be able to hire more WordPress developers, we will have to raise our rates. We’ve planned to raise our rates in the first quarter of 2019.
The good news is that all of our existing clients and any new client buys our services before the price increase will be grandfathered at the current rates until 2021.
So, if you’ve got a project, now is the best time to act. Schedule your call with me to see if we’re a good fit today.
