“From the day we created this company in 2007, we wanted to make the best web applications for the world.”
Our latest interview features Power Elite Author, ThimPress and their journey in the exciting world of WordPress. Check out their story and tips for success!
Tell us about yourself.
We are a Vietnamese Tech startup company specializing in WordPress themes, plugins and website solutions for small and medium-sized enterprises. We have website solutions for Schools, Hotels, Restaurants, Charity, and many other types of corporations! ThimPress also provides Time-Saving WordPress themes and plugins for the community.
To what do you attribute your success – how is your business unique?
We don’t only provide clean and modern WordPress Themes, but we also make sure every WordPress Theme we make is high performing and optimized for SEO. All ThimPress products are made with our whole heart and we don’t build things that we don’t use.
In other words, we essentially build the products to serve our needs, then release it to the public. This is also the way we test and improve our products. The first release is usually almost complete, but just needs some more tests, as well as documentation before bringing it to the WordPress community.
What do you love about your work and why?
The main reason for us to work is that we have a passion for the work we are doing. So we always create products with all our hearts and try our best to make our products the best they can be.
What’s the most challenging thing about your work?
First is about staff/human resources. We know that current web trends change everyday, so we regularly update our themes to meet the needs of customers. But now we have 30 WordPress Themes on ThemeForest, so we have to compete with top technological companies to be able to hire the right people who are passionate about WordPress.
Besides that, almost all our customers are from Europe and Africa, and we’re from Asia. This leads to differences in working time, language and culture between us and our customers.
What or who inspires you and why?
As a team, we inspire each other. Together we create an effective working environment and a good working atmosphere. We are always united, sticking together and sharing our difficulties and victories at work.
What are some of the biggest lessons that have impacted your work?
The biggest lessons we learn are from our competitors. We always try to do better and do the best we can.
What is your advice to other authors regarding how to create a successful portfolio?
Try the best to make every pixel perfectly (we are still trying)!
Apart from yourself, who is your favorite marketplace author, and why do you like them?
ThemeFusion – because they are the best seller on Envato!
What are your hobbies and interests outside of work?
Our ThimPress team plans a picnic once a month. We make sure that everyone in the company sticks together, works together and can enjoy time outside of work together.
What are your plans for the future?
We’re going to keep working hard to make the best apps for all users around the world, creating for a better world. Watch this space!
