This week on WPblab Bridget Willard & Jason Tucker speak with Sé Reed of Sé Reed Media about how small businesses can use WordPress. There is much ranting and raving about the difficulties of getting small businesses to choose WordPress over companies like Wix and Squarespace. Sé shares her perspective on educating new users to WordPress and her quest for making the entry level of self hosted WordPress easier for small businesses.

    we need to make the web easy. if getting content is a pain point but your client is on Twitter all the time – boom, there’s your content. WP is so flexible, let’s put it in the service of small biz and creators

    I don’t think it’s because they are too aware of Woo and other stuff. I think it’s because they just don’t know about WordPress period.

    just updating the Readme to indicate the latest version of WP it’s compatible with would keep it updated
