    Rahul Bansal: Selling WordPress to Enterprises

    WordCamp NYC 2017Speaker: Rahul Bansal

    February 16, 2018 — My WordPress journey started with working on small projects as a freelancer.

    Over nine years, we have grown to reach the other end of the spectrum, regularly handling large enterprise WordPress projects.

    At this scale, the rules for “selling” WordPress change. WordPress’ traditional advantages don’t necessarily apply anymore.

    I will start by addressing the two biggest apprehensions that enterprises have about WordPress, i.e., security & scalability, and will also cover other pain points like:
    – Integration with existing systems
    – Ownership and responsibility
    – Extensibility and long term viability
    – “Free” and “GPL” concerns

    I hope the lessons I share in this talk from our learning will help fellow agencies increase the WordPress adoption in enterprises.

    October 1, 2016 — India has the second largest population in the world. More than a million people are directly working in IT sector.

    Yet, WordPress agency or in general any software agency in India, or even in South Asia is often mistaken as that agency which does low quality work for ridiculously low rates!

    When we started in 2009, it was very clear that we are not going to be part of this “race to the bottom” culture. We wanted to work on projects that were exciting and challenging. A kind of work that makes you proud at the end of the day!

    I would like to talk about how we used innovative methods to hire passionate people, what challenges we faced in motivating our employees to be core contributors, nurturing a culture of giving back to open source and how it all helped us stand out.

    The result – I am glad to say that I have the privilege to lead and work in one of the most talked about WordPress agencies in India today, for right reasons!
