Boulder Bike Tours

Ben Buie | 10/21/15

I hired a handyman to do some work on my house and it turned out he needed a website. Like many small businesses, he had a very small budget, so small that I typically can’t help much. I gave him some options and we came up with a plan that worked for him.

Herschel, my new handyman, picked my brain about ways he could keep the budget down and he decided to open an account at wpEngine because they help manage server security (he had lots of issues with Bluehost). He watched several YouTube videos and found a highly recommended theme, installed it himself and learned how to use it. When he hit a wall, he reached out for help. Sometimes I could walk him through the issue and other times I just made the changes for him.

In the end, he got a nice looking site that allows him to update content and make changes without the help of a developer.
