Awesome Motive products are seen by billions of internet users every month. Being a fully remote company, we’ve enabled ourselves to create an absolute dream team to help shape the web for billions worldwide.
We’re an overnight success, 13 years in the making. In 2009, our founder & CEO, Syed Balkhi, started a free blog called WPBeginner to help non-techy small business owners learn how to build & grow their websites.
Over the next few years, WPBeginner quickly grew into becoming the largest free WordPress resource site for beginners. This helped us gain a unique understanding of the challenges and problems many of our readers were facing in growing their web presence.
It helped us identify three key areas to focus: tools, teams, and training.
At this time, we made it our mission to help level the playing field for small businesses, so they can grow and compete with the big guys through our superior growth tools, helpful training, and amazing support team.
Over the next years to come, Awesome Motive expanded into building software and today is one of the leading software companies in the world with over 21 million websites using our tools to grow their business.
We’re a Different Kind of Company
From how we got our start to how we operate today, we believe that we’re building a different kind of company.
Unlike most companies of our size, we’re fully bootstrapped (no investors). This freedom allows us to always do the right thing and stay focused on our mission: helping small businesses grow and compete with the big guys.
Our team has been fully distributed from day one because we believe that talent is everywhere, but opportunities are not. By having a purpose-driven distributed team across over 45 countries, we are able to build superior tools and training to help more small business owners grow their online presence.
One of our core principles is to put People First, always. We believe that businesses are built to serve people, and the profits should be used to impact those in and around the business. In our case, people who use our product (our customers), and people who build it (our team).
Today our software is used by over 21 million websites, and it impacts billions of people who access the web every month. We believe this success is only possible because of our unique values that guide us in everything we do, both public and private.
We are a Force for Good
We believe all companies should be forces for good. While building a product is great, building a future is better. With every purchase of our product, you help us improve lives around the world.
Our top philanthropic priorities are fighting inequality through education, environmental sustainability, and building a better web through open source.
We work with a number of organizations to help build schools, provide scholarships, and support non-profit and open source projects.
When someone tells you it can’t be done, it’s more a reflection of their limitations, not yours!Syed BalkhiFounder & CEO of Awesome Motive
