February 25, 2017 — We all know that it’s not “just a blogging platform” anymore, but how do you handle client concerns when those “other” guys are pitching a more expensive “solution” and knocking you for pitching WordPress?
In this talk, Joe Ponzio will discuss the differences and limitations of WordPress with concrete examples of some of the amazing things that those “other” guys just don’t know how to do in WordPress.
