Episode 28: Is WordPress recession proof?
A lot of the entrepreneurs I’ve interviewed started in the last economic downturn of 2008.
So that got me thinking, is WordPress recession proof?
WordPress services can be sliced and diced in many ways. It’s not creating “work” that’s the hard part, it’s finding the right vertical.
Rebecca Gill of Web Savvy Marketing joins us to share what it was like starting out in the recession, finding a niche and building an awesome virtual team.

Recessions, niches and teams — oh my!
Can we say AWESOME interview?
Rebecca shares a ton of great info about her journey as a WordPress entrepreneur. If you’re just starting your business or you’re a seasoned veteran, you’re going to get a lot of great info out of this one.
It seems a lot of great WordPress companies came out of the recession. Folks like Cory Miller and Rebecca saw great opportunity and growth and dove in head first when the rest of the world was running away.
These economic swings are like huge reset buttons. You will hear people say no one is spending money, but that’s just wrong. When one door closes another opens. They might not be spending money on the “usual” products and services but now is the time to offer an alternative.
WordPress was and is poised to do just that. Offer up a complete solution for any size business at any budget with a community to see it forward.
