About Us

WP Shrug gives you access to a live WordPress developer for support, site care and small fixes for as little as £49 a month.


WP Shrug was born from past clients that kept coming back to us, as they weren’t keeping their WordPress websites up to date with the latest security patches and bug fixes. Some were keeping on top of it, but every now and then their sites would break due to making a mistake, or because of an incompatibility issue with their theme or plugins.

We recovered and cleaned up hacked and broken websites, we got them re-listed on Google and put a WordPress update management and backup plan into place to prevent future issues and ensure that if anything were to go wrong they could roll back to the latest version.

As our client relationships continued to grow we found that they required further assistance to make their lives easier, so they could focus on growing their business.

We assembled a support team of WordPress professionals to focus on fixes, help and advise which gave our clients the ability to know exactly who to go to when having issues with their website.

Clients also needed help with best practices such as the management, security and hosting of their websites. So we figured out a way to offer a set of services based on the different levels of support required, at competitive and affordable prices.

We have grown into a remote team of WordPress support professionals. We’re based in the UK and we help people all over the world to succeed with their business goals.

We specialise in WordPress and we have a wide-range of skills and experience which allows us to provide solutions to problems people have when working with WordPress.

We’re continually learning on and off the job, whether that’s from overcoming a new challenge, or attending the latest WordCamp. We’ve built a trustworthy team that’s passionate when it comes to helping our clients with their businesses.

When growing our team we always look for like-minded people that get a kick out of helping our clients with their businesses. We make sure that we provide great communication, and go out of our way to deliver excellent customer service. We love WordPress and we use our specialist experience within it to work together as a team and provide you with the best possible solutions.
