Show of hands – who remembers seeing this announcement when it was first posted?
If you were one of the then relative few that decided to use this newest CMS (Content Management System) for your website, give yourself a pat on the back for recognizing greatness!
From its launch in May, 2003, WordPress evolved from a little-known blog software to a full-service CMS that continues to improve; winning accolades for its ease of use, accessibility, SEO enhancement, and unequalled customization potential due to the thousands of plugins created by the users themselves.
If WordPress is already so great, why is the SkyStats dashboard plugin necessary?
Because the default WordPress dashboard is “one-size-fits-all” and the web development industry is anything but that.
And how do we know what the web development industry needs in a WordPress dashboard?
Because we work in web development as well. We have the same goals, we work in the same environment, we face the same challenges – in short, we know what you need because we need it too.
The Beginning of SkyStats (or How a Small Web Agency Got a Big Idea)
Once upon a time… our resourceful team of web developers realized that the default WordPress dashboard, while filling the needs for other users, wasn’t really providing the solutions our profession demanded.
We needed to be able to measure online marketing performance, check the status of social media campaigns, see the impact of our latest email marketing program, review paid search campaigns, and much, much more. Web marketing is a demanding industry, where we juggle projects and tweak strategies continually, so we needed a dashboard where we could check the status of all our tasks in a single view.
“Simple,” we said, “we’ll just find a plugin that does all that!” But surprise! there wasn’t one that met the criteria…yet.
“Less simple, but essential…” we concluded “we’re going to make our own plugin.” And after months of research, planning, reviewing, creating, revising, and lots of sweat and tears (but thankfully no blood…as far as we know), SkyStats was born!
Why is SkyStats better than the WordPress default dashboard?
SkyStats is an all-in-one dashboard for WordPress, exactly tailored to web development use, so SEO agencies down to freelance designers can put it to use with impressive results. Even an agency’s clients can benefit from having SkyStats as they’ll appreciate the in-a-nutshell approach to reviewing their site’s marketing progress.
The default WordPress dashboard is just that, a default version that isn’t customized to fit a web agency’s demanding requirements.
