MacVoices #20164: Mike Potter Gets In-Depth on WordPress (3)

Mike Potter of ESC! Technologies wraps up our discussion of WordPress with a discussion of Plugins and how they bring functionality to your web site, and offers  more thoughts on whether you need a developer or whether you want do run your website yourself. He covers why some businesses think that a Facebook page is enough (it isn’t), why you need to plan and budget for your web site like your business depends on it (because it just might), and talks about the benefits of a working with a local developer. Finally, Mike teases us with some details of a virtual Macstock this year.

Show Notes:


Michael Potter offers computer consulting of all flavors through his company, ESC! Technologies Group, including building WordPress web sites. Fine him on Twitter as @esctechgroup. He is also the Executive Producer of For Mac Eyes Only, and the organizer of the annual Macstock Conference and Expo. Mike’s love-affair for all things Apple began in his Junior High’s Library playing Lemonade Stand on a pair of brand new Apple ][+ computers. His penchant for Apple gear continued to be nurtured by the public school system when, in High School, he was hired as a lab supervisor to help run the Apple ][e lab for his fellow students and their Print Shop needs. Then, further still, in college he often opted to help a friend with her Computer Graphics coursework instead of focusing on his own studies, but only because it helped get him closer to the Mac-lab.
