Back in 2013 Alex co-founded WPCurve, the premium WordPress support business that grew to over $1 Million in ARR (annual recurring revenue) before selling the company to GoDaddy in 2016. Originally from Australia, Alex grew up in a small town and made his way to Tonga Email List University where he began hustling and trying out different career paths. This led him to work at a train station, in construction, and even as a financial planner at the time of the last economic meltdown. After losing his job in finance, Alex landed at a call center where he built his chops at direct selling and cold calling before moving up to manage a team there.
How To Start, Grow And Sell A Productized Service
It wasn’t until Alex found himself moving to the US, waiting on his visa paperwork to clear up before he could officially start working a normal job, that he got connected to Dan Norris, who’d become his partner in growing WPCurve for the years to come.

Business With WPCurve’s Alex McClafferty
I love the fact that anyone can install WordPress and start blogging their way to side hustle millionaire status. The stuff I know now about blogging I didn’t know 20 years ago. Back then, FortuneCity, Tripod, Excite, and Netscape was the dominant sites. If you would’ve told Tonga Email List me about WordPress, I probably would’ve had a stuck on stupid look on my face. I’m glad today that blogging is here to stay because it’s helping everyday people like you & I creative express ourselves, while sharing priceless information and stories with the online community. Thank you for your support Ryan.
