Today we are going for something different here at WP Mayor, we’re taking a look at the most well-known WordPress agencies and companies. These are companies that have constantly been producing top-notch WordPress websites for a number of years, and their people are well known in the WordPress community.
They can serve as an inspiration for you if you would like to build a new company based on providing WordPress services, or you might also end up trying to join one of these companies if you prefer having a job with established people.
The basis of this selection is purely my observation of the WordPress industry during the last few years. There are of course many more great WordPress freelancers, companies, and agencies, however, these are the best ones that I have come across. They have been producing excellent work that has served as an incentive to improve my own skills, and I hope you will also find them inspiring.

They develop customized apps and plugins that succeed in capturing leads and increasing sales power. While others may build you a beautiful looking website, Saucal builds websites that attract new business in the virtual world. Of course, they look beautiful, too.
I know the guys from SAU/CAL personally and highly recommend them. What I love about them is that they really focus on your business results, and they make sure that your new website is a real investment that generates great returns rather than just being one other business expense.

The Free Website Guys has a very interesting model (and one we haven’t seen before): they don’t actually charge to build you a WordPress website.
Instead, they help business owners to build a fully functional and professional website but don’t bill for their work. The reason that they do this is simple: it’s been a great way for them to create connections with business owners, a certain percentage of whom come back at a later date and hire them for large paid projects. This means that they’re huge on customer service and they have thousands of 5-star reviews floating around to prove it. Don’t let that make you think that the “free” aspect of their work means that the quality of work is lower. By checking out some of the examples on their website, you’ll find a fair share of impressive WordPress websites on there.
Such an innovative “free” model caused them to take off in a big way, and within about 6 months of launch, they had become the top-rated website development agency on Clutch (out of 40,000+ agencies), G2, and a couple of other such rating sites.
