My brother and I both love WordPress, and between the two of us have over 20 years of experience using it on a daily basis. We work on our plugins full-time; this isn’t just a side hobby for us. Debugging code, listening to customer’s feedback, and responding to support tickets is something we thoroughly enjoy!
It all started with our marketing blog, woorkup.com. We were frustrated that there weren’t any good WordPress plugins out there when it came to helping us increase our conversion rates when trying to display coupons and deals from companies we were promoting. So we decided to develop our own plugin, and that is how WP Coupons was born. Check out the demos on this site and you can also see it in action on woorkup.com/deals.

Brett Jackson – @iambrettjackson
Co-founder of forgemedia LLC. I am a web developer who loves building awesome web applications and, of course, anything WordPress. Previously I worked at an agency where I was responsible for building, maintaining, and optimization of clients’ sites so that they could achieve their marketing goals. That also included sysadmin activities, such as updating PHP, managing servers, etc.
I built some of the custom things you see floating around this site like the deals plugin and widget.
Fun facts about me
- If you can think of something you want WordPress to do, I can probably code it.
- I can really geek out when talking about video games, headphones, or personal finance.
