A WordPress-powered stack for creators who want freedom, flexibility and ownership.

2020 has seen an explosion of independent writers going out on their own.
We realise setting up your own publishing stack can be  complicated, we want to change that!

What's in the publishing stack

While there is a lot in common with small media companies - they're not all the same. This is why we haven't build a one-size-fits-all product.

Let the WordPress and Digital Publishing experts at The Code Company take the risk and complexity out of building your  WordPress powered publishing stack.

What you'll get:

  • Support and Project Management from concept to launch
  • A customised WordPress site to suit
  • SEO friendly and tools baked in
  • Native newsletter building within WordPress
  • Integrate with any major ESP (Campaign Monitor, MailChimp, etc)
  • Managed Hosting by WP Engine
  • All configured to best practices, and industry standards.

Could you go it alone?

Sure. But who needs additional risk and complexity of doing it by yourself? By engaging The Code Company to help you on this journey, you can be confident that you're supported by true publishing specialists, a complete end-to-end solution powered by world-class technology.

We believe the most successful creators will likely grow into a small media company. A small media company needs to be able to develop custom features or integrations and have greater control of its key digital property.

Can I migrate from Substack to WordPress?

Yes! While we recognise the importance of platforms like Substack and the evangelism they've facilitated, many media businesses require more flexibility, more personalisation, more ownership of their digital platforms than Substack can provide.

We can migrate your content, subscribers and even existing payments with our friends at Pico.
