Adam W Warner from WP Pro Business has caused quite a stir in the WordPress community with his huge WordPress competition. Adam is giving away over $9,000 worth of prizes. You can win resources, WordPress themes, WordPress plugins, hosting, e-books and more.
Josh Kohlbach from Thirsty Affiliates introduced me to Adam via email. I was curious about the man who launched this great competition and how the competition came to fruition. Thankfully, Adam was kind enough to answer some questions about the competition for you all. I hope you enjoy the interview :)
For the benefit of those who don’t know you, can you tell us a little about yourself and what you do?
I’m a web development consultant specializing in the use of WordPress and WordPress Multisite. My development philosophy focuses not only on solutions, but also education, empowerment, and support for my clients. I will provide you the tools to achieve your project goals, and I will show you how to use those tools.
I’m also an addict. My addiction to the Internet started in the early 1990’s when a fellow employee at the pizza joint I worked at invited me over to get on the BBS (Bulletin Board System). I was awake all night watching orange text messages scroll vertically across the screen. I was amazed at the opportunity for connecting with others across the globe. I still am.
Now in 2012, there is not only the ability to connect with others on a global basis through existing web sites but you can present your voice, message, or company through your own site, and be in control of the content that you display and how you engage your audience. Having an effective website used to mean understanding a whole new language (or several), but with the right tools installed, you can communicate through your own web presence effectively and easily.
I’m a firm believer in giving back to the online community as often as possible and have donated my time to create and support sites for various people and projects such as The Girls Guide to Homelessness. I also run WP Pro Business and have created many freely available WordPress tutorials here and here.
What does WP Pro Business offer WordPress users?
WP Pro Business leverages over 20+ years of combined team experience utilizing WordPress, SEO, Blogging and Online Marketing techniques to deliver freely available tutorials and reference materials that allow businesses and individuals to create and refine their own websites and Internet marketing efforts. Our focus is to help others succeed.
You’re hosting arguably the biggest ever competition for WordPress. What inspired you to launch this huge giveaway?
Our inspiration was to continue to build our reputation in the WordPress and Internet Marketing community. We believe that our good standing with the sponsors who have graciously donated their premium products is proof positive that we are not a “fly-by-night” resource for those truly serious about building a long-standing and successful business powered by WordPress.
We’ve been involved in the WordPress community since 2004 and have used every single product in our giveaway. We know the benefits that these products provide and our goal is to share those benefits with the lucky winners.
