“After putting off getting someone else to build a website for years, mainly because I couldn’t get my head around not being able to manage the content myself, learning how to use WordPress seemed like the answer. I feel very fortunate that I came across Pootlepress, followed my intuition and booked a one-day website building course with Jamie.  Jamie’s approach, support, knowledge and personality have made the whole process a joy. Leading up to the day he was on email to answer all my questions and recommend possible themes, the day was really fun not to mention productive – in a few hours I had a website I really liked and actually understood, and the follow-up support has been fantastic. I would recommend the course 100%.

Thank you Jamie!” Zoe Maxwell

You can take along your plans, sit beside him and watch whilst he builds it and within a few hours walk away with a great looking site. It’s the best way to learn. When initially shortlisting, it was the support services that stood out. After meeting him, I can confirm that they are second to none.”

Imagine Africa

WordPress Xpress 3Imagine Africa specialise in providing luxury holidays throughout Africa.

Being successful at selling tailor-made luxury holidays in the UK, we wanted to see if we could replicate this in the US market. To do this we needed a website specifically to test the market. Web designers costs were coming in at around £7-10k for the most basic site. And then we found Pootlepress. With one day of one-to-one training, we were able to set-up a new website for our US market. Jamie tailored the training based on my understanding of websites and the design we had in mind for the new site. Every part of the training was therefore useful and a great investment. Jamie has been on-hand via email to answer any questions we had along the way – always responding very quickly. And now the site is ready! Our google ads are now running in the US and we hope to see enquiries for tailor-made holidays coming in over the next week. ”

Princess and the Pram

The Princess and the Pram is a great new blog that has just launched in London. We’re really proud of it’s lovely clean design that really lets the great content shine out.

“Feeling baffled after reading some WordPress guides I knew it would take me an age to get my blog to a state I would be happy with it.  Instead after googling WordPress training I came across Pootlepress and booked Jamie.  In less than 5 hours of arriving at my door my blog was up and running and looking fantastic.  Super patient and clear Jamie is a great teacher who has instilled confidence in me to be able to manage my own site competently and on my own.  Not being massively technically minded no question seemed too small or ignorant and Jamie has been a support ever since.  Would highly recommend if you want your website up and running and don’t want to get lost on the way!”

“Thank you Jamie for an amazingly productive day. I arrived with a heap of paper and electronic files and magically during the course of the day it was transformed into a website that looked fab, and more importantly the team can update and is extremely easy to use. After years of very frustrating software and expensive fees the ‘what you NEED to know’ and ‘this is HOW to do it’ approach was fantastic.”

They had found a necessary gap in the market to help start up companies and individuals realise their dreams with wordpress.”

Impress Coaching

Impress Coaching is a blog we set up for Mark Sheasby. He works with clients and to help them achieve at the highest possible levels. His clients currently include business leaders, England Rugby players, County Cricketers and Premiership Footballers.

“I am delighted with the blog I’ve set up using WordPress Xpress & the Pootlepress Academy. I am an IT dummy yet Jamie made it a pleasure to work on & I got going quickly & easily. I have a good working knowledge of WordPress as a result and can get on with blogging happily. I can’t believe how enjoyable and easy this all is; and good value to. The tutorials have been a real boon to refresh & develop my knowledge & they enable me to maintain & develop my blog quickly & at a very low cost. The Academy allows me to fire questions in and the responses are both prompt and helpful.
With Jamie & Pootlepress I have set up my blog just how I wanted for a few hundred pounds. This compares very well with the quotes I received for companies to do this for me, the cheapest being £4,500 with ongoing expenses to maintain and develop it further.  I can’t recommend WordPress Xpress & Pootlepress Academy too highly, it’s an excellent & cost effective solution to establishing your own blog / website.”
