WordPress help for growing businesses.

Growpress is the home of Yorkshire freelancer Dave Wilkinson. I specialise in small WordPress projects, like helping local business owners improve the design & functionality of their website, improving conversion rates, and using more than 15 years experience in web development to help you grow online. People really like working with me, and I'd like to work with you.

How I Work

Getting started is easy. Just email me to explain your project. I'll give you an estimated price for the work, and we'll take it from there.

When we agree on the scope of your project, I'll ask for Administrator-level WordPress login details, as well as login details for your hosting control panel. If you don't have these, or your current designer is holding them hostage, I can help you get them.

Most of my work is done on your live website. This isn't ideal, but it is budget-friendly. I do my best to work non-destructively in ways that won't affect your website visitors. I also backup your website before starting any work.

When I've completed work on your site, I'll email you to let you know you can check my work. If I missed anything or you're not happy with the results, I'll keep going until you are.

That's it! I look forward to working with you.

How Much?


Invoiced in 30 minute chunks, for payment on completion of work. Simple.

Your work is absolutely amazing, Dave. How on earth do you do it? It's okay, you don't have to answer that. :) Thank you so very much. I am SO thankful that I found you!

Just wanted to say thank you for being patient with my hugely overbearing enthusiasm – and well done. The site looks wicked, lots of people are loving it already and it feels great.
