  • the inclination
  • the interest
  • the expertise

Wow, awesome! 

WPStrands spontaneously went the extra mile to make it happen despite significant technical difficulties related to the specific setup of my website. Hats off, and many many thanks!

Our Vision

We envision a world where every person can build a business they believe in without becoming mired in the technology used to run that business.

In this respect, running the business should be like driving a car - you know how to drive it but you don't need to know or care how the engine works.

Our Mission

We want to change the view of website maintenance from a
non-essential luxury to
an affordable, must-have necessity.

We'll be as indispensable to your website as a car mechanic is to your car.

Our Values

Each client's personal well-being comes first, their business comes second, their business's website comes third.

We help our clients in every way we see possible.

Our clients focus on work they love. Everything else is taken care of professionally, cheaply and extremely reliably.

Integrity and Honest at all times.

A note from Seán

I know what it’s like being a small business owner. You try to master every aspect of business just to get it off the ground. Then you try to stay up to date and on top of it all once you've got things up and running.

Small business owner and master of … nothing?

I also know what its like to get caught up in all the tiny details of those business tasks. It feels like progress is slow or worse, like you're making no progress at all.

It’s easy to be hard on yourself, telling yourself that you should be able to do it all. Others have done it; how hard can it be?

But I know only too well what it’s like to come face to face every day with tasks I neither enjoy nor like.  And don't even mention those jobs I'm just not very good at ... ouch!

But I also know the joy of freeing myself from those jobs. The skills I never learned properly, the business routines I find boring or the technical stuff I just don't want to do.

So, imagine how it would feel to give away the tasks you're not interested in to someone who is.  Someone who can do them well.  I can say without a doubt that the biggest stress reliever for me has been learning to delegate.

It was also one of the most difficult.  It feels like you’re giving up control of a whole part of the business. It feels like you’re giving up on learning that task because you just can’t hack it ...

It couldn’t be further from the truth.

How to free yourself from the overwhelm: delegate

The single best thing you can do for your business is to focus on your strengths.

And the way to ensure you can focus on your strengths is to delegate everything else.

So imagine having no more WordPress stress. Ever.

Then stop imagining, because you can do it for real with any of our plans.

All the best for your future business,


Who are we?

wpstrands founder Seán

Seán has had an interest in and worked with technology all his life. He wrote his first platform game on the ZX Spectrum as a 13-year-old. He's worked with Microsoft, Lotus, Fujitsu-Siemens and Smartforce, among others.  He's been a programmer and an automation specialist.  He's been a consultant for BT and the Dutch tax office and an IT manager for Switzerland's first independent directory inquiry service.  And he's managed operations for the largest cloud platform in Switzerland.

So, he knows a thing or two about online technologies.

(He's also been a sheep dipper, a fruit picker and a maker of pool tables, but their relevancy here is questionable.)

Seán founded WPStrands for one reason: to help beleaguered business owners forget about their underlying technology and just get on with business.
