I own [obscured] and have a new version of the site at [obscured]
The new site is about 90% done. I need help getting the store to work properly, implementing the product pages so I can assign certain attributes to products, and help with a few miscellaneous WordPress and WooCommerce issues as they come up.
Looking to hire someone in US only...
Skills: mysql administration, php, woocommerce, wordpress, wordpress e-commerce
“I have owned and operated an ecommerce business (www.bestbackingtracks.com) for five years and have struggled mightily to find a good WordPress developer. I'll tell you right now that this guy is the REAL DEAL. Unlike all of the other WordPress developers I have hired (and fired), he is a true IT professional with a broad range of programming, system administration, and of course WordPress skills. As a result of his 27 years of IT experience, his knowledge is deep and broad, and he was therefore able to promptly solve ALL of the technical problems we encountered with the overhaul of my website - and there were MANY problems due to the poor work done by the people I hired before.
He is easy to work with, prompt in his communications, a very clear communicator, and available to talk on the phone when needed. A nice guy, true professional, and clearly cares deeply about doing top-quality work.
The big problem with all of the other WordPress developers I have encountered is their skills are not very good. It is too easy to start creating sites in WordPress then start selling yourself as a WordPress consultant. I would hire someone, they would do a few things, then get flakey and stop responding to emails, then I'd hire the next person who would point out that the previous person did things incorrectly, so I would waste even more money for the next "professional" to fix things, meanwhile THEY would screw up even more things! VERY frustrating and very costly. End that cycle and hire this guy.
I cannot describe the relief I feel to have FINALLY found a true professional - someone who actually has the IT skills to do WordPress work properly.
My new site he built is awesome. It's in a theme he recommended (please follow his recommendations), it is fast, gorgeous, and does more than even I expected or hoped. I am totally thrilled with his work and will only hire him from this point forward.
