You’ve found the last “web guy” you’ll ever need!

Welcome to WPopt. You won’t find empty promises and false hope of things I can’t deliver here. All you’ll get from me are straight, honest answers, hard work, low prices, and best of all – a reliable, trustworthy guy who’ll never leave you hanging.

I like to think I’m the last web guy you’ll ever need. I can provide a wide range of services, and if there’s something you need that’s not detailed below, perhaps I can still help – let’s talk. If I can’t help you though, I’ll be straight up, and I’ll tell you so. Nothing’s worse than wasting your time, right?

Services I offer

Performance Optimization

Are you tired of waiting 15 seconds just to load your site?

WPopt will:

  • Fully audit your WordPress site
  • Identify bottlenecks
  • We will provide you with a report letting you know what are the “biggest wins” in terms of changes that can be made, and then work together with you to implement these modifications

WPopt guarantee that:

  • Your site will load in a fraction of the time that it did before
  • Your site will be more stable, and secure, than ever

Site Redesigns

Does your online presence need a fresh coat of paint?

Do you have a WordPress theme which was released 5 years ago and hasn’t been updated since? Are you having compatibility problems with newer browsers, plugins, or technologies? Perhaps you made your site many years ago in pure HTML and now want to
make the jump to a Content Management System, such as WordPress?

We’ll help you choose your perfect theme, style and colour scheme. We’ll tie everything together into a beautiful, well-performing package and present it to you with a ribbon on top. We’ll make sure your site is mobile-friendly and easy for you to update in the future!

About Me

Charles Smith

Charles Smith

Super-awesome guy in charge

Hi there, I’m Charles, and I’m the guy behind WPopt. I’m a food blogger and website performance obsessed, ever-so-slightly nerdy person who gets very excited about things like new CSS standards and MySQL.

I’ve spent a great deal of time optimizing my own food blog to make it load as quickly as possible. I believe the web should be fast, and I want to share my knowledge with other people. You won’t find cheaper support, and if you do then I’ll match it. I keep my prices down because this is a freelance work – I don’t have overheads to pay… office space and other associated bills… I work from home in my spare time to ensure that you’re getting the best deal. I also strongly believe that people should be able to have great sites without paying through the nose for them.

I’m based in the cold north of Sweden, but don’t let that dissuade you. Most of my clients to date have been from the US.

Got some questions? Hit me up using the form below!

Here I am...

I’m up here in the north of Sweden, but the web brings everyone closer together… get in touch with me using the form to the right, or contact me via Skype.
