Before learning about WPE, I was honestly considering applying for a [JOB] because of feeling overwhelmed and not earning what I needed to. WPE Blueprint Course changed ALL of that, I am now so excited to see the results of putting in practice! This is the ONLY course I needed! Joye Quinn, Skybound Tek Design
The process and a shift in my mindset. I'm no longer reacting to the late-night ideas of clients. Instead, I'm setting the tone, and positioning myself and business as valuable to them from Day 1. Supportive, Generous, Valuable. Scott Kennedy, Shepherd Digital

I think the training and courses we got were amazing. You were able to learn at your own timetable, and not only that there were coaching calls, and forums, FB groups that really allowed everyone to learn what they needed. You have folks that were in the program from the start all the way up to folks that just finished the program. Everyone is so warm and welcoming. Everyone in the community is amazing. When you ask a question, answers are there pretty quick. Everyone is so open to helping everyone else out. It's just amazing. LOVED everyone. To be honest in what we paid for the program I think we robbed you. Your value you bring to the table and your students is amazing. I just can't tell you how happy and excited we are... Thanks again for everything and I am looking at growing with you guys. Theresa Hill, iNovate Marketing
I really enjoyed the training.. I liked that the videos were short and I could pace myself through the modules. I've loved the community. The Facebook group is always helpful and I find no one judges you (unlike some other groups I've been in). During the course I won my first 10K project which was very exciting! I have finally implemented a system that makes my proposals writing really quick and easy. And it gave me a lot of confidence knowing that i had a lot of the pieces already in place - but I just needed to refine them and get them into a good system. Evielyn Chapman, Mavn Digital

WP Elevation is well laid out with good case studies and a lot of variety. Got my new website up in half the time and have a clear plan now for content and how I will promote it. I also have much more confidence in my decision-making and this comes across to prospects and clients. A fantastic product for Wordpress Consultants wanting to build a lasting business. Noelle Leahy, Insignis Web Design
img-34
WP Elevation delivered what they said they would - and more! Providing useful practical information, templates and processes that could be implemented on the spot. The community is very helpful and friendly as well as responsive to questions. I am building a solid business background, a process for working with clients and small things I can do that add up to big things that will set me apart from my competition. Teri Pastorino, Gtdevdesign
img-34
I have been piecing my business together over the years, not really clear on what tools I needed or how to implement them. WPE connected the dots for me! I am finally in a community that does what I do (more or less). Prior to finding WPE I was in with information marketers and I always felt that something was missing. They have been extremely helpful and supportive. Cheryl Smith, Soloweb Solutions
img-34
It was very informational and extremely helpful! I have found new sources that I never even about. Or even knew how to find! I love everyone in the community! There are so many great ways to connect with them! My Website looks better than ever. I know what to use for future clients and have a better and more confident proposal process! Yasmina Colony, Yasmina Colony Designs
img-34
I had an increase in profits and confidence. WP Elevation community is amazing, inclusive and supportive. Thank you to not only the WHOLE WPE team but to all the WPE members who are so supportive and encouraging. This was an intensive and busy two months, but my business has never been doing better! Haley Brown, Brand Shack
The most foolproof and practical training I have ever undertaken. I gained a structured system to plug into the business. More confidence in the process and our end product. Upfront knowledge of budgets and better budget clients. Pete Sutton, Saltwater Collective
img-34
Amazing. Extremely thorough and practical. Addressing all parts of the life cycle and not afraid of detail. I found it transformational. WP Elevation gave me the belief that I can control client expectations and project creep, benchmarking - confidence that I am using the best systems, processes and tools, belief that I can supply what I say I will supply. Amazing course guys. I'm really knocked over. You've created something really powerful. Luke Hamilton, Marketing Implementation Clinic
Practical. There is no doubt about what should happen. Everything is broken down into easy to follow steps with actual examples of how to. No fluff, just good advice that can be implemented. The community is supportive, friendly, encouraging and non-judgemental. It's like an agony aunt for your business. I'm member of front-end dev groups but feel like I can't discuss WP issues on those forums. At WPE, you're in touch with heaps of people who have been in your shoes already. It's fantastic. Sarah Watson, Jee Web Design
img-34
It's some of the best training I've seen online. It's enjoyable and motivating to do. Definitely over deliver and complete. Very helpful and warm. A lot of excellent leaders in their fields giving quality advice. I just want to really thank Troy (and team) for creating this training and the community. It is really obvious that you are passionate about what you do and the people whose lives you change. The fact that you keep growing and adding to the course material shows that it's really about providing the best possible training to your members. Anchen Le Roux
img-34
No nonsense, no fillers - exactly what you need to get going NOW, TODAY. The trainings are detailed in digestible chunks to implement and go. by the end you are ready to sell and get more quality clients. Making me look more professional. even a seasoned business owner, like myself, can get to new tips from the trainings. I think all the information is super valuable for starters or wp developers that move from freelance to business owner. It is always good to refresh your knowledge and hear it from a different angle. Natasha Votypka
So much help from the coaches, both in webinars, on the facebook group and in person during coaching calls. It's also very nice to have support from other elevators. Just have the balls to ask what you want, better client communication and positioning yourself as an expert. A bunch of friendly, helpful people! Ben Gyles, Nebit / co-founder of Intophysio bvba

WordPress consultants have know-how in numerous areas, being able to deal with sales, management, execution, social media/marketing and so forth. However, putting the pieces together is what brings value for the clients – and that’s what WP Elevation is aiming to help you with. Mario Peshev
img-37
Troy and the team deliver, consistently. The WP Elevation process is excellent and is set up in such a way that individuals can ‘season it to taste’. The two monthly calls are invaluable. There is always a golden nugget. Add to that the peer support within the forum and the willingness to share resources plus the regular gauntlets that Troy throws down… Dee Harrison, PhiloBiz
img-35
I was not ready to throw down a hundred bucks when I first visited WP Elevation. 2 minutes into Troy’s video introduction, I knew this would be an investment yielding higher returns in my business – for which it has within 30 days of joining. It was clear that if there were any business coach in WordPress to have, he was going to be the best find on the internet. Jonathan Holborn
img-36
I now know how to start my own WordPress web development business. I have a good grasp of how to run the important processes. How to interact with client, how to interview them and how to qualify a project, if it is a good project to execute. Bart Volgers
Kronda Adair
The WP Elevation training is Excellent. I now have a road map that has made it much easier to start putting systems in place that will make my business run more smoothly and profitably. Kronda Adair, Karvel Digital
Ed Stott
The WP Elevation training has been excellent and the interaction from those who are in the training, both Troy and the WP members, brings an added value to the entire process. The community is the BEST as they are very willing to share what has worked for them so they may help their fellow Elevators accomplish their challenges. I know the WP Elevators are a community I may call on when I'm stuck with a WordPress problem or a business related problem that may affect all WordPress consultants. WP Elevation has gone so far as to teach their members not only about WordPress but how to run and market their businesses. Ed Stott, Stott Marketing Group
Katrina Wagner
Before WP Elevation, I had no way to control how much work was coming in, and it was always feast or famine. After I had implemented a few of the strategies I learned from Troy, my work week got much more manageable; I started making much more profit, and I could spend more time on each client’s project because I wasn’t juggling so many small tasks. Each time I learn something new in a webinar, from the online materials or by asking questions in the forum, my business gets stronger, and I have a better work/life balance. Absolutely worth the investment and I recommend it to WordPress developers looking to improve any part of their business. Katrina Wagner, Graphic Beans
Lisa Boyd
The training is pure genius. Just when there are other questions popping up, there's a training for that! WP Elevation has a very supportive, helpful community. Lisa Boyd, BoydPress Solutions
Nicholas Batik
This was excellent training. You delivered tremendous value for the money. The course by itself was worth it, but all the extra bonuses clinched the deal. Nicholas Batik, Pleiades Services
Alicia Kapheim
The training was thorough, supportive and over-the-top...there is so much beyond the actual course that I've yet to get to. WP Elevation has made me confident that I can run a WP consultancy. Alicia Kapheim
Victor Ramirez
I can't believe no one else is doing this. When I meet WordPress developers who don't follow these practices I'm flabbergasted. I now have new business confidence and knowledge. Victor Ramirez, An Abstract Agency
Bruce White
WP Elevation brings massive benefits. We're not a WordPress development company. Web is only a small part of what we do but, the processes are almost universally applicable to business. We've adopted the processes and made them fit our business model and audience but, perhaps more importantly, we've taken the positioning element of "elevating" above the pack very seriously. We've lost a lot of clients but we're starting to attract higher quality clients, too. Bruce White, RedTrain
Christina Hawkins
I have been able to up my game. WP Elevation has given me the confidence to charge higher rates for my hard work and experience. Another benefit was meeting others who are also struggling to run a web business. The community has been great and I've learned so much from them. I still refer to the webinars and courses when I need an answer. But the weekly calls, the forums, and the Facebook group have all become part of my growing business. Christina Hawkins, GlobalSpex
Julie Wolpers
WP Elevation helped me realize I needed to expand the scope of my services with a focus on my clients' businesses, not just their websites. I have been able to confidently negotiate 5-figure packages that are wins for both my business and my clients. Julie Wolpers, Webcurrent Communications
The community has some of the best people that exist on the Internet. I won an SEO quote using the principles laid out in the blueprint worth almost £15,000 per year. We've also started implementing the other parts of the blueprint into our business and are finding that we can save more and more time by streamlining our work and having proper processes in place. Matt Davies, AntiSushi Ltd
Esther Anderson
The WP Elevation community is brilliant. My #1 go to place for resolving issues. Esther Anderson, Teck-Nology
Nathalie Materne
The exact process to become a high-level WP consultant... if you aren't one already :-) Nathalie Materne
Tania Huffman
The training is very detailed training with supporting materials, opportunities to ask questions and seek help along every step of the way. I have gained confidence and I am implementing the steps of the Blueprint. I have a new business just this year, but the course has given me guidelines and structure. I have a proposal out currently for a 50% increase in price from my previous website that I completed last month. Tania Huffman
Georgia Butterfield
The WP Elevation training is unique - it provides useable, actionable, valuable training for solo entrepreneurs and small business owners. We have an awesome community of business owners and solo entrepreneurs. People who are interested in their own businesses and problems but also sensitive and supportive of others experiencing similar challenges. Georgia Butterfield, Prospera Unlimited
Raul Colon
The training is Game changing. I have been figuring things out since 2008 on how to build websites to earn a living. My only regret is not finding this sooner. Raul Colon, Limonade Inc.
Luke Hallam
The WP Elevation Community is Positive and highly motivated, non-judgemental and very inclusive. A large variety of business's at different points in their life cycle. Luke Hallam, Munch Design Pty Ltd
Stef Rigby
I'm usually guarded in talking about my business, asking for help from other peeps doing what I'm doing ... but the community is amazing! I love the community .... and I'm NEVER LEAVING!! Stef Rigby, Web Design Girl
Linda Long
Comprehensive training that covers the pains of being a web consultant in today's market place. The community is open and willing to help each other. It's one of the best communities I've belonged to. Linda Long, Long 2 Consulting
Shelly Haffly
The WP Elevation community is extremely helpful, encouraging, and more knowledgeable than the average bears. I like the fact we're not newbies in the development world...We've all been doing this long enough to be ABLE to focus on the business end of things. It's nice to be able to have business discussions, while also learning some new ways/tools to improve business." Shelly Haffly, Haffly Headquarters
Patrick O'Dogherty
The training is practical, relevant and easily implementable advice for immediate impact. I have successfully charged higher fees, have offloaded bad clients, have got processes under control, am far more efficient, have far less stress, work less hours and have added 30-40% to my business's bottom line. Patrick O'Dogherty, Yarra Web
Boel Stoddard
It has given me a strategic plan for growing my business and for attracting the right kind of clients. Boel Stoddard, Essential Planet
Establishing more structure into my new business and understanding core concepts of the sales/marketing side that was new to me. Anita Weber, The Web Consultants
Mark Fouet
Excellent! It's not just about running your WP orientated business, it's also about how to build integrity and putting the client first in what you do. It's thorough and the additional webinars are great! The community is very good - like minded people all willing to help each other. It compliments the training so well; couldn't be without it! Mark Fouet, Webtaktix
Personally, confidence, and a better understanding of the value of my work and time. Professionally, higher project fees and hourly rates (projects start at 3x my old rate now!), and the ability to work with the right client and dismiss the ones who aren't a good fit. Robert Simmons, Hatmen Marketing
Brendyn Montgomery
WP Elevation is a well thought out system that has a comprehensive but easy to grasp strategy for streamlining your WordPress business processes. Brendyn Montgomery, Avoca Design Ltd
Leanne MacDonnell
I feel much more confident in what I do because I have the blueprint that makes sense and keeps me on the path to winning more jobs and getting paid more money. Leanne MacDonnell
Naomi Lolley
WP Elevation training is by far the best training I've been through! The WP Elevation community is helpful and professional. The opportunities for each of us are huge, and we work together as an informal team to offer solutions and assistance whenever needed. The community connections via the forum and Facebook are priceless, because as a solo-preneur, I don't feel as if I am stuck alone in my corner of the world. The coaching calls and Q&A opportunities are better than any others that I have participated in, because Troy and the coaches make an effort to help us understand concepts and take action on them. Naomi Lolley, ImInBizOnline
Susan Weaver
This is the best thing I've done in years. I wish I would have found WP Elevation a few years ago. I don't have much in the way of business background and this is so targeted to exactly what I do. I've signed up for other programs in the past but they were more general. The community is a HUGE bonus as well. It has really helped me to be able to listen in on the conversations of others who are doing what I'm doing. Thank you so much! The community is very supportive and encouraging. The community brings a whole other layer of information that is invaluable. Susan Weaver
We've had several "ah-ha" moments that seem so obvious in hindsight. The biggest eye-openers were all about how systems and processes can help, not hinder a creative company. Specifically, we've implemented a version of the website worksheet that has saved us an amazing amount of time and energy. Second, we've really started to use the Anti-follow up as a real tool for informing instead of closing. Lastly, we're convincing clients to slow down and make sure they understand what they need, typically through discovery sessions. Christopher Schell, Design Rangers, Inc.
Rudy Vaughn
The training is very easy to follow and provides clear instruction on the what and why of the process. It provides great examples and templates and most of all it's fun! Through WP Elevation, I was able to implement client care plans which are providing some recurring revenue. In addition I now have a clear process that I use to communicate with current and potential clients. By far the most encouraging and helpful online community that I've interacted with. Rudy Vaughn, Graphic Zen, LLC.
Jacob Sager
The training is clear, appropriately compartmentalized, and digestably delivered. The community is supportive, Smart, and Spunky. Everyone is themselves while offering their whole selves to one another through advice, high-fives, or a do-or-die shortcut. It has brought clarity in my business offerings and operations. 2 new contracts valued over $15k. An invaluable amount of business acumen. A network of WordPress experts, of which I am now part. Jacob Sager
Scott Towne
Confidence through foundations of practices for my business, better positioning, better communication, better judgement of finding clients that are good fits. Interacting with the community is a great feeling and adds further learning. Now I am connected to so many people to be able to bounce ideas off, hear about their similar experiences, and learn together. It is an amazing package! Scott Towne, Fairfield Media Co.
Sarah Page
I have gained confidence in my experience and the knowledge to run a project completely, start to finish. Sarah Page, SMP Studios
Kelly Aldridge
Direction and processes. This is something I knew I needed, but didn't know where to start and if it was right. Kelly Eldridge, Arco Design
Amy Keys
The training is EPIC, as well as the secondary benefit of "training" by other members. WP Elevation has transformed my fledgling solo-preneur business into a regenerated, confident small business. Life and business changing - it is my "secret society" of helpers, referrers, supporters, cheerleaders, commiserators, and business partners. Amy Keys, Hat Rack Studio
Anna Butterfield
The community Amazing. Truly wonderful. Supportive, professional, respectful - I haven't found another online community like it. I was trying to set up a freelance web business having no previous industry experience. Everything I learnt about the business of web design - I've learnt from WPE. 30 clients later - 20 on Client Care plans. Not bad for a stay-at-home Mum of two preschoolers. Anna Butterfield, Help Me Net
John Shepard
WP Elevation has given me the confidence that the work I'm doing is valuable. Ability to charge more and pass on potential clients that don't understand the value I provide. John Shepard
Rex Stevens
WP Elevation gave me better process for screening customers and managing my business. More confidence in what we offer to be able to charge higher rates. Rex Stevens, Phoenix Design
Briar Woodhead
Incredible. The way we worked through the Blueprint and having each module reinforced by coaching calls and the community was brilliant. I Love the Facebook group, can't imagine life without it. ;) It's been a total mind shift. Now focusing on the clients with realistic budgets and expectations, and letting the others projects filter themselves out. So much more confident in the value I'm providing clients. Getting great systems in place and continuing to improve things day by day. Briar Woodhead, Bee Online
Peter Wennersten
For me, I had many of the components in place but not the whole picture, resources, templates and guides. I was able to quickly identify what needed application and or tweaking. The second pass is now going back, fixing bits and making sure it's all together. Plus learning and applying the new concepts and training. I also like the way WP Elevation is growing by elevating respected members and not sitting on its laurels but staying keen. Peter Wennersten, Icon Innovations
Sean Hynes
The community is a great mix of ambitious and motivated business owners who assist, advise and encourage each other. Being involved in a community of like-minded individuals - The WPE community is amazing. There is a tonne of knowledge being shared daily in the forums and on Facebook, and the level of support people show others is amazing. I Changed my mindset on pricing and value - It's still an ongoing battle to value my services as much as I should, and to charge appropriately, but from WPE I know what I should be doing. Sean Hynes, Alpine Web Design
Cate Ferguson
The training is in short sharp bites that don't overwhelm. Easy to understand, follow and implement. The time between modules allows you to actually put stuff in place, ask questions, get answers and 'make it your own'. Until now I'd never been part of (an online community) so alive and connected as this community. I certainly value my time and skills much more than before I came out the other side of WP Elevation. I also realized that I love working with clients who get it and won't work with those that don't. It's given me the tools and the skills to do a much better job and to focus on the bits of the business that bring me joy and helps me get my clients on the right path. Cate Ferguson, DreamCatcher Marketing
JJ Fox-Walburn
The videos were an exceptional format that I was surprised to enjoy as well. Usually I prefer to read content but the videos by Troy were very effective. JJ Fox-Walburn, FlyGirls Media
Russell Comer
The community is Fantastic, anytime I've had a problem or issue I've went to them and the support is almost overwhelming. It's a great place to be. Russell Comer, RussellComer.com
Before I had no processes, now I have process and I am starting to use them. Even if I didn't get the client, it helped the prospect to think things through. I am still learning and I am sure I will get so many more results. One thing I will say it has helped me to have more confidence and to realize I have a lot to offer. We tend to downplay our assets. Priceless. The training at WP Elevation, has been hands down, some of the best training I ever had. The coaching calls really help as well because its so good to hear other people have the same struggles as I do. The Facebook group is hands-down the best group I have ever been a part of. I love all the video's, it's like troy is right there in your living room. Sweet. I can't tell you how many late nights we have had together. lol Sandra Templeton, Design Diva Creations
