A Static-first Approach to WordPress

We love WordPress – the ecosystem, the large market share of the web, its familiarity, and the variety of tooling available to us. But we also know WordPress has some drawbacks – it can be slow, security is a constant battle, it is perceived as legacy software, and scaling can be hard.

The static-first approach will open up more options and opportunities for you, your business, and your clients. Let’s talk about how you can build a static-ready WordPress site without much additional effort on your part.
