As a WordPress specialist agency, we provide professional web build services to a broad range of industries. It’s important we stand out from the crowd when potential new clients look for the right agency to turn their project into a reality. With no formally accredited WordPress qualification available to prove our expert knowledge, it can be difficult for potential clients to measure our knowledge against other competing agencies. To help, we’ve written this post to elaborate more on what makes us WordPress experts.

What is a WordPress expert?

A WordPress expert is a professional who has extensive knowledge and experience, specialised and concentrated in WordPress skills.

What makes us WordPress experts?


Every member of our team is knowledgeable and experienced in WordPress, not just our developers, but designers and UX experts too. Our management, operations, support, sales and marketing teams are all familiar and educated in WordPress, each with an abundance of experience. This allows every member of our team you’ll come into contact with here at Pragmatic to deliver superb, expert WordPress knowledge when discussing your project with you.

Many of our senior management team started off as WordPress developers and designers before progressing into operation or support roles. This foundation in practical WordPress knowledge is invaluable to our team and plays a vital part in the services we offer. Many of these members regularly keep their practical WordPress skills up to date by helping out on time critical projects.

Learn more about the people behind Pragmatic

Before joining our team, many of our developers and designers were specialist WordPress freelancers. This means that not only are these team members experienced experts in WordPress, but they also have valuable management and operational skills, such as budget management, developed through previous client work.

To keep our knowledge up to date, the office regularly attends international WordPress events. Whilst soaking up new expert knowledge, we also get the chance to brush shoulders with other leading experts in the community. Through this, we’ve had the privilege to make contacts at these events who have since gone on to work with us here at Pragmatic.

We’re rapidly growing, with each new team member bringing a wealth of unique knowledge and experience about WordPress to our business. This strengthens our expertise and contributes to us being one of the top leading WordPress specialist agencies.

We’re WordPress specialists

From the beginning we’ve only ever delivered our web build and management services in WordPress. Focusing only on this platform allows us to concentrate our efforts on providing world-class services in the number one web publishing platform of our time. It’s free, it’s open-source, it’s well-supported and our customers love it. It’s no wonder why we decided to specialise in it!

As a WordPress specialist agency, we have strong connections with other WordPress specialist service providers, such as being a partner of WPEngine and a Gold rated WooCommerce Expert. WPEngine is a WordPress only specialist web hosting provider, and we’ve been installing our client’s websites with them since April 2012.

Over time, we’ve developed a reputation as experts in the WordPress community and are now one of the largest WordPress specialist agencies in the UK.

Leaders in the WordPress community

We’re regarded as WordPress experts locally, nationally and internationally. In the local community, we often host WordCamp events in and around Brighton and have helped local businesses with free WordPress clinics.

Pragmatic Founder & Director, David Lockie, is frequently invited as a WordPress expert to talk at international WordPress specialist WordCamp conferences, and the 24 hour online streamed event WordSesh. David’s travelled to Norway to deliver a presentation on how WordPress can save the world, and has had the pleasure to speak at WordCamp London twice.
