Two years ago today, when we formally launched Barrel Roll, I had hoped that it would be a more efficient way to provide ongoing WordPress maintenance to our existing client base, and perhaps pick up a few new members along the way.
Almost immediately it became clear that there are a lot of people out there with WordPress websites that need help. We get Emails and phone calls from people all over the world. We’ve been featured on tons of great websites and people are starting to throw us into the conversation when they talk about the best WordPress maintenance companies.
One thing that surprised me was how often people were interested not only in maintenance but also WordPress optimization. New members often come to us with slow and bloated websites that aren’t serving their customers or visitors well and we help them get things on the right track, often making significant improvements in their website performance along the way.
Over the past year, we’ve launched a brand new version of the Barrel Roll website. Interfaces were improved to make it easier than ever for our members to access their backups, see their website uptime data, and review order information. We rolled out redesigned client report emails that are easier to understand and more concise. We’ve added more content to our blog as we continue to build on our efforts to become a resource for the WordPress community at large. Some of our more popular posts in 2017 included:
What’s Next For Barrel Roll?
Over the next year, we’ll add new features and functionality that will improve not only the performance but the security and stability of our member websites. We’ll continue our push to get all of our members setup with SSL certificates and continue to improve their page load performance. We hope to post original and useful blog content more often and get more involved in the WordPress community.
We’re looking forward working with our members and welcoming many new members to the Barrel Roll family in 2018!
