Customer Support Lead
Damien is a rockstar who has answered more than 10,000 inquiries from AppPresser customers. He hails from Ireland, and has a passion for finding homes for abandoned animals through Adopt A Pet.
Matt may think he’s still on his way to becoming an old-timer in web development, but others know he’s already there. He began tinkering with the web shortly after Netscape Navigator became a free download browser in 1994. Although he graduated with a B.S. Degree in Graphic Design, he found his way into the Linux web server and got a peek at the Matrix; he has been writing backend code ever since. He has built many web sites over the years for small to medium-sized businesses, for the past several years most of them have been on the WordPress platform. Customizing WordPress through themes and plugins has become his specialty.
Grant has been working with WordPress since 2.9.1 back in 2010. He has a passion for customer support and helping small businesses utilise WordPress and the web at large to grow their business. He considers himself a jack of all trades (and master of none) with a wide reaching set of skills and experience from websites to marketing to tropical fish breeding.
We love going to events like conferences and WordCamps, and meeting our customers. Here’s some random pictures for your enjoyment.
How AppPresser Started
WordPress started as a blogging platform, but quickly moved beyond that to being the most popular website software in the world.
With all the great new sites being built, and the popularity of mobile apps increasing, many people wanted an app to go along with their site. The traditional approach is to build an app that is totally separate from the site, but then you have to manage your app and website in different places. That’s more overhead, and more things to worry about as a business owner.
Most app builders and products offer very little integration with WordPress, no support for custom plugins, membership sites, ecommerce, and all of the great features people build into their site. Building a mobile app that integrates with WordPress is such a pain. We thought: there has to be a better way.
We created AppPresser so that WordPress users could put all of the cool features of their site into their app, and then manage their site and app in the same place. It doesn’t require ninja mobile app skills, just basic WordPress development.
Now we help agencies and developers create awesome apps and bring in more revenue.
