WordPress Development Agency
We love WordPress, and have been working with the platform since it’s inception. We develop custom themes and plugins, all wrapped in beautiful HTML5, styled with stunning CSS3, and hand coded with care.
An outsource partner for many of the UK's leading agencies
We work as an outsource partner for many of the UK’s leading agencies on their WordPress projects.
Agencies prefer working with Gooey rather than freelancers, as we work to budgets, timescales, fixed costs, and we are reliable, so you can be sure never to receive an email on a Friday night saying that we are going on holiday for a couple of weeks.
All of our WordPress developers are based in our Manchester HQ.
How we work with WordPress
Your Journey Begins
Send us your designs (Figma, Sketch, Adobe XD, Photoshop or Illustrator) and any specs/briefs/assets for our team to review. We are happy to sign any NDAs 🙂
Our devs will review and provide you with a fixed price and project timings / deadline. We put everything into a proposal so you can see exactly what you are getting and when.
The project is then assigned to one of our expert developers and you will have a project manager who will guide the project through to completion. If you need to chat with the developer this is also fine, our PM’s can arrange this.
Once the developer has finished, the project is then passed on to our QA team who test the project against your designs/spec/brief to ensure all has been followed. The QA team will log amends via our amends system BugHerd and the developer will fix any issues.
When the QA team are happy with the project we then send you a preview with a full handover on a password protected white-label (not Gooey branded) domain. You can then review and log any amends on BugHerd. We offer two rounds of amends, one for the agency and one for your client.
Once you are happy with the project we then sign off, and can either launch the site onto a dev or live environment, and/or send you the files and database. We can also host the site and offer ongoing support if needed.

Gooey are essentially a team of freelance WordPress developers that partner with agencies on web development projects. We act as an extension of your team to collaborate on WordPress coding projects of any size or budget.
The core difference between choosing to use Gooey over a freelance WordPress developer is that you have an entire team at your disposal, including dedicated project managers to facilitate communication and time management.
WordPress is an incredibly versatile platform and can be used to build almost any kind of website, from small-scale to large. However, particularly if your site is larger or requires more features, it is important to use reputable WordPress developers to bring your ideas to life successfully.
Our WordPress developers are experts in building custom WordPress themes from scratch, and delivering high-quality work to fast turnarounds. All of our developers are based in our HQ in Manchester, UK, just a short walk from Piccadilly station, why not say hello?

WordPress Development FAQs
Why outsource WordPress development?
The main reason for choosing to outsource is lacking the necessary skills and resources in-house. Outsourcing can often be more efficient than hiring a WordPress developer in-house, particularly if your requirements vary throughout the year.
How do I choose the right white label agency?
First of all, you need to make sure that you choose a reputable agency with the relevant skills to complete your project. If you want a WordPress site, choose a team with substantial experience (like Gooey) that specialise in creating custom themes from scratch. Also consider your time zone. As a UK-based agency, we find that our UK clients benefit hugely by being on the same work schedule to us (unlike if they had outsourced to overseas WordPress developers).
WordPress is one of the most versatile platforms available, and – being open source – it is accessible to anyone. It is customisable and scalable but you need to make sure that you get it right. Read some of our expert tips for scaling using WordPress here.
Why build custom WordPress themes instead of existing templates?
Existing WordPress templates are immediately available for users to purchase at various prices. These can be sufficient if you are short on time and/or fund however it is not suitable for a long term fix. With custom builds, every step of the design and build can be done to suit your business requirements and will result in a totally unique website.
Do you use existing WordPress pre-made themes?
No, at Gooey, our team of WordPress developers only create custom themes, or can use your internal agency theme framework/boilerplate.
Do you work under NDAs?
As a white label agency, we value discretion and work to strict NDAs to ensure confidentiality. We have an NDA template that we can send to you or we can sign yours.
Who owns the finished code?
Once the WordPress project is complete and signed off, we will send you all files so that you will be in complete ownership and control of the code / WordPress theme.
