Southern Entrepreneurs brings new initiatives for SMEs

WP Doctors Ltd, founded and run by Dan Harrison, specialises in extending WordPress based websites to save time and make money. Typically these changes are extending WordPress templates or creating custom WordPress plugins. It also offers its expertise through consulting and training.

Dan began working for himself in 2009, the same year he discovered Southern Entrepreneurs (SE). As owner of a start-up business, Dan was interested in attending networking and training courses and was introduced to SE through a business associate. He started WP Doctors in 2010 and a year later it became WP Doctors Ltd.

Dan found the courses run by SE extremely helpful: the first two he attended were ‘Low Cost No Cost Marketing” with Jane Buswell and ‘How to Network’ with Val Down. These courses gave WP Doctors Ltd. a valuable insight into how to market with low budgets and how to effectively network with other business professionals.

It was through his SE membership that Dan met an individual who advises businesses on commercial property. It was via this contact that Dan discovered a new home for this business - fully serviced office accommodation at Wessex House in Eastleigh, Hampshire.

As well as attending training courses, Dan now runs courses for SE. He frequently runs the Mailchimp email marketing course and will be soon running a brand new WordPress course for SE members.
