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 who 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 couple of years. There are of course many more great WordPress freelancers, companies and agencies, however these are the best ones which 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.
