Today, we have with us Victoria P., a founder of WPdevs.io – affordable wordpress sites development company that accepts Bitcoin!
Hello Victoria, please tell us more about WPdevs. How did you come up with the idea?
I’ve been in IT business for more than 10 years. Before launching WPdevs, I mainly worked with big clients and long term projects that often would last a year or two. But then I realized that there are a lot of small businesses out there that cannot actually afford my services. So I decided to create WPdevs – a platform where small businesses and solopreneurs can get a beautiful professionally made website for very little money.
Ok. But how do you make money? How did you manage to bring costs so much down?
In order to bring our costs down, we decided we don’t need an office and we now have a 100% remote teams. Most of our clients don’t have a hosting, we offer that as a service as well and this is how we get a long term recurring revenue. We accept Bitcoin, which helped us increase our profits a lot.
Bitcoin? How exactly?
When we get paid for the project in Bitcoin, we only exchange the amount needed to pay the salary. Also many of our developers accept Bitcoin. The rest of the amount we keep in Bitcoin and exchange it once the price goes up significantly. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.
So you actually trade your Bitcoins? Which platforms do you use?
I love Localbitcoins. I think it’s the best place for traders to sell Bitcoin. It’s easy, it’s secure, and you deal with real people. I also you Binance for crypto to crypto trading.
What are the other crypticurrencies you are investing in and why? What would you recommend to those who are just starting out?
I also have Bitcoin Cash and Ethereum. However, if you are a newbie you better stick to Bitcoin. Before jumping into trading, you should do your due diligence and understand how cryptocurrency works, what are the reasons for crypto to go up and down. One should have iron nerves to be a successful trader.
What are your plans for WPdevs? Are you planning to accept more cryptocurrencies in the future?
We are working on development of our own WordPress theme and server that we will use to create sites for our clients. We may also start accepting other cryptocurrencies in the future.
Thank you for taking your time and answering my interview questions.
