2021 has been yet another successful year for us here at weDevs. Yes, one of the best years so far regarding growth, customer happiness, and our overall achievements.
18 March 2022 was weDevs’ 9th anniversary of working with WordPress and SaaS solutions.
I'm Nizam Uddin, the CEO of weDevs is here to share with you what we did in 2021 and what we're planning for 2022 to help you make your life easier.
We are truly delighted to see the love and trust you've put in us on the way to becoming a WordPress Brand. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
We are trying to continue our regular life but we have not forgotten that our beloved world is still fighting against COVID-19; three years in a row, really sad! On the other hand, countries are suffering from imposed war. This is really a hard time for all of us.
You know that the show must go on. We have to move forward and find out what to do next and help each other to overcome the challenges. Team weDevs is always on the side of the oppressed and downtrodden people and we're working to help more people and businesses through our products.
Before diving into details, let's have a quick summary of weDevs 2021.
weDevs 2021 in Numbers
Starting back in 2013 as a WordPress Startup, I and Tareq Hasan always focus on making WordPress more powerful, user-friendly, and easier. Our tagline is- ‘We Create Things That Work.'
We have tried our best to develop something that helps people make their day-to-day journeys more comfortable and convenient.

Celebrating weFamily Day 2022
I always give priority to our employees. Want to make weDevs the happiest company on earth. We do what our team loves to do. So, 4 years back in 2017, we decided to make our family members come closer by engaging them in our anniversary celebration program. We announced 18th March as ‘weFamily' day.
It's amazing to let our family members know what we do and how. It's lovely to see our parents and child enjoy throughout the day and share their stories.
Time flies. We should not miss the chance to get together with our family & loved ones and write new moments for future celebrations.
weDevs 2021 Flashback: Our Contributions to WordPress and SaaS
If you want to create something unique, you need to start from scratch. I believe weDevs is an example of that. During our University days in 2008, I and Tareq used to run a WordPress site, for blogging purposes actually. Today we are a family of 100+ people! Thanks to Almighty.
We always love to share our journey with our customers; the experiences we had and the additions we brought in the system and so on. This takes us closer to our audience and we feel more connected this way.
If I look back, it was 2017 when weDevs moved to a bigger office with only 25 employees. Now we have around 100+ people working in different teams. Over 300% growth within 4 years!
And the fact is- we work as a family here and we always use the term “weFamily” while addressing issues in our meetings.
Product Growth and Contributions from Development Side in 2020
This is the part I personally focus on all the time. Development obviously is the most significant part of any software company. As we believe in creating something that works so there is no compromise. And you will wonder listening that last year we have added an astounding 4M+ lines of code.
We are quite accustomed to reaching new heights. Because we have released our free and pro plugins a whopping 222 times.
That’s not the end! We knew, hiring the right people would be a cog in the machine for our company. Apart from the business, content marketing, and support team, our development team is also rapidly growing.
Product Development and Feature Updates in 2021
A bigger team is supposed to contribute more. That’s exactly what happened here at weDevs in 2021. Our developers have outpaced their previous contributions with a number of new features. You can check out our products' new features, tweaks, improvements, and fixes that were done in 2021.
Here are links both for the feature page and changelog.

Content Creation in 2021
Previously at the end of 2017, we shared how weDevs is reshaping its content and marketing strategy. In the process of executing that strategy, we have become a bigger team of 12 members in 2021.
We have started sessions like Knowledge sharing and Growth Hacking on a regular basis. These are helping us become more confident, creative and proactive. Most importantly, these sessions helping us to get ready for the global audience.
Since weDevs works with digital products, content marketing is the soul of our marketing strategy. But we always have trust in the motto “We don't create content for sale”. We try to create value for our audience. This motto and the love we get back from you; motivate us to create more valuable content for you.
Continuous evaluation and improvement have always been the focus of our team. To thrive consistently, there’s actually no alternative. Now, like the previous years, we’re feeling constrained to share our data-driven assessment with you.
So, let the numbers talk!
Throughout the year 2021, we have successfully created and published around 500 well-researched articles on six of our websites, 300 documentations for 10+ products and 140 videos on YouTube channels. Kudos to the content developers!
We all know that content isn’t only about articles, it also includes designing, idea-generating, sharing, implementing, and so on.
Let’s have a look at the contributions of our designing team. Shall we?

weDevs design team done really well throughout the year 2021.
8.4k+ designs, 130+ animations and 2.7k+ frontend pages got updated. An awesome growth from the previous year- 2020!

Thanks to their hard work. It's not possible to run campaigns, and other marketing or branding activities without their creative efforts on time.
Growth, Trust, and Love We Achieved in 2021
Now it’s about you, dear customers. Yes, YOU! We’re really glad that you paid a visit to us. You’re also doing it right now, thanks for that.
With you and with the increased number of unique visitors as well, over the year 2020, we saw a 65% to 200% increase in the traffic on our sites. Isn’t that amazing?
Now, you may be wondering about the number of users of our site. Well, the growth rate, in this case, is even better! Compared to the user count of 2019, we have got an 80% growth in 2020.
These are all about traffic. Let me show you the conversions and downloads We got last year.
3.6 million total downloads! Total active installations or running businesses are 210k+.
With all this traffic and the constant effort of every member of our team, no doubt our website is improving daily. The Alexa ranking clocked on the last day of the last year was around 9.6k. Which means a 200% leap in the ranking.
Growth was not only achieved in the downloads, but also in the active installation count and revenue.
We Believe in Continues Learning & We Practice Growth Hacking!
It's our 2nd year in a row, we started joining in a growth session. We read books, discuss and debate about different tricks and theories, choose the best ideas of the week and forward them to the right people to test and deploy.
Yes, you guessed right, we are actively learning and practicing one of the most effective but low-budget marketing methodologies called ‘Growth Hacking“. Here's a detailed article on Growth Hacking for startups.
As anticipated, all these efforts and achievements resulted in more revenue in 2021.
We Started A Truly Global Brand Ambassador Program
weDevs' goal was and is to develop a true customer-friendly environment and make the WordPress community strong. Yes, from the first day of our journey. we are aware of giving back to the community and we believe that customer is king.
So at the beginning of 2020, we launched weDevs' very own Brand Ambassador Program. From the USA to Australia and Singapore to India- we have already appointed 12 Brand Ambassadors in 12 countries. They are actively contributing as the flag bearers of weDevs in their respective countries.
We will make this program more powerful in the upcoming days and there will be one ambassador from each country. As I already said-they will dedicatedly work for weDevs and WordPress.
Yes, that's how we want to go ahead, together.
Customer Happiness and Stronger WordPress Community are always our priority!
Team weDevs Getting Bigger Day by Day
I'm thankful to Almighty God and my team for what they have done to make 2021 yet another successful year for weDevs. I and Tareq also thinking to help and support them in all the possible ways. With having facilities like Gratuity, Provident Fund, Corporate Facilities and Health Care Programs; this year we have added more paid leaves, unlimited fruits, and more.
Yes, as I mentioned earlier that they are our family members, not just employees. We try our best to treat each one of them as a family member. And last year we got 48+ new members in the weDevs family by evaluating over 3000 candidates. Now we are a great family of 100+ members!
As we always believe in team power, we try to get the best ones!
weDevs 2021 Flashback: Looking Forward to a Rocking 2022
The year 2021 has been one of the most fruitful years for us here at weDevs.
But What I believe that- 2022 will be far better than 2022.
Last year, We focused mostly on product development and breaking down the boundaries we have around us.
We are getting prepared to introduce more tools to make your life easier and turn this year into the best one! There are a few SaaS solutions are waiting for you on our pipelines!
Yes, this is how we are working here at weDevs with a dedicated team of 100+ members.

We are planning really big in 2022, especially to make Gutenberg Editor more powerful and feature-rich. We are working with a few remarkable projects including SaaS (a good number of, actually!) that would be more impactful in the upcoming days!
Coming to the end, I want to repeat that 2021 was really a fruitful year for weDevs. And this was possible not because of the effort or dedication of any particular team. We achieved this by the collective effort of the whole weDevs family. You too are part of this huge success.
We are dedicating this success to you, dear customers; and each one of our hardworking employees from the Support, Development, design, marketing, and content team.
