Choices, at least online, aren’t endangered. The point of this isn’t to confuse you or push you toward something, it’s just to remind everyone that with so many choices out there, it… Read It
Some time ago we launched our Reseller system for Pagely.

We are happy to announce today that the WordPress Reseller system as undergone a refresh in design and features, and will be making it’s full debut shortly. Version 3 Alpha… Read It

Pagely to host leaders of the WordPress Economy for PressNomics II Last year we asked a crazy question. What would happen if we invited a hundred or so prominent business owners from within the WordPress community to our city for a 3 day event focused on business and collaboration?

While the initial outcry was mighty, Gmail’s change to a (semi) permanently tabbed inbox has seemingly improved engagement rates for newsletters and other such marketing content. While open rates themselves are down, full reads and return visits are up, meaning those interacting with your content are into it. Let me repeat that. Open rates may be down, but engagement is up. One more time: open rates down, engagement up. What does this mean?… Read It

In the life of any company that is a milestone. More so for an independent, bootstrapped company like ours. While others have the… Read It
