Background Story

4 years ago, I published a post celebrating WPBeginner’s 10 year anniversary. In that post, I asked our readers to share their WPBeginner story as a video and explain what they have learned from WPBeginner and its impact on their business.

I got tons of user videos, and in there one of the video responses was from Chris Hadley, so I connected with him at that point.

Chris has been a longtime follower of WPBeginner. He learned about WordPress super loop from one of our articles on WPBeginner in the early days, which played a critical role in building the HeroThemes business.

Several of our own knowledge base sites are also powered by Heroic KB plugin, and our other doc sites use a lot of the functionality that we forked from this plugin in the earlier days.

Going into 2023, we eventually decided to join forces.

I invested in the HeroThemes through the WPBeginner Growth Fund and will be advising the team on how to expand their business.

At Awesome Motive, we have years of experience building popular WordPress plugins that are used by over 25 million websites, including OptinMonsterWPFormsMonsterInsights, and many more.

Not to mention, our WPBeginner growth fund portfolio companies like MemberPressFormidable FormsPretty LinksWholesale SuiteUncanny Automator, and others have seen tremendous growth over the years.

Sharing our combined knowledge with HeroThemes will help all of us better serve the larger WordPress community.

I’m really excited to be working with Chris, Richard, and the entire team to help accelerate their growth in 2023 and beyond. They will be joining me at our next Mastermind.

As always, thank you so much for your continued support of WPBeginner.

WPBeginner and Awesome Motive would not be here without YOU, and I just want to say how much I appreciate all of you.

And I look forward to continuing serving you and the larger WordPress / web ecosystem for years to come.

    I’m really excited about WPBeginner teaming up with the folks from Hero Themes. Yet another arrow in the quiver. It’s getting so I (and thousands of others) only need to go to one source in order to get more proficient at developing/designing wordpress sites that are customer focused for the end user.

    Thank you for your foresight
