WordPress API Integration and Plugin Expert

Completionist — Asana for WordPress

Completionist — Asana for WordPress

Curious about my abilities as a WordPress API integration expert? Seek no further! Completionist is a custom integration plugin for Asana, the popular task management service. I single-handedly designed, architected, and implemented this modern WordPress API integration plugin.

Despite being a pretty small project thus far with minimal marketing efforts, Completionist has received notable attention and trust:

**Completionist by Purple Turtle Creative is not associated with Asana. Asana is a trademark and service mark of Asana, Inc., registered in the U.S. and in other countries. Learn more.

Grouped Content — Page Hierarchy Navigation

No plugin is too big or too small to provide value, though! I also single-handedly developed a simpler WordPress plugin available for free download. It adds helpful navigation and reporting features for hierarchical post types, including WordPress’s native “page” type.

This plugin is available for free download in the official WordPress.org plugins directory—which means even the team behind WordPress has reviewed and approved my WordPress development abilities.

  • What is a WordPress Consultant?

    A WordPress Consultant is someone who offers advice, guidance, and help with your WordPress system.

    Purple Turtle Creative is unique because I’m a professional, full-stack web developer. This means that I can single-handedly audit, advise, and act on your WordPress website without you needing to interview and involve additional parties. It’s vastly more cost-effective and easier to work with me.

    Over the past 5 years, I’ve worked as a professional WordPress developer and consultant for a multi-billion dollar Fortune 500 media company, a global non-profit, several SMBs, and start-ups—not to mention all of my own custom WordPress software!

  • What is WordPress API integration?

    “API” stands for “Application programming interface”. Most well-known software services and web technologies offer an API, such as Slack, Twitter, Asana, Mailchimp, Google—you name it!

    An API is how a WordPress developer, such as myself, can perform actions and receive data from your other digital services. This unlocks unlimited, powerful possibilities to automate processes and personalize experiences across web technologies—including your very own WordPress website!

    Here’s just a few examples of WordPress API integrations that I’ve architected and delivered:

    ✏️ Create custom WordPress posts by importing research data from Google Sheets
    ✅ Display Asana projects in WordPress posts and complete Asana tasks within the WordPress admin
    📈 Track usage analytics and system metrics into Google Analytics from WordPress experiences
    📹 Optimize WordPress users’ video uploads via Mux in the BuddyBoss WordPress theme
    🛍 Tag WooCommerce (WordPress) customers in the Keap CRM property

  • How much should I pay for a WordPress developer?

    WordPress developers can charge anywhere from $15–$120 per hour. As dramatic as this price range is, their abilities are as well. Most “WordPress developers” charging below $35/hr typically don’t write custom code and will simply help you configure WordPress, install existing plugins or themes, and do basic HTML and CSS tweaks.

    To get real value from your WordPress system, look for a WordPress consultant or developer charging at least $45–$60 per hour. This price range typically means you can receive unique solutions that are tailored to your business’s exact needs. Otherwise, you’re likely sinking costs into generic plugins and themes that need repetitive maintenance and attention.

Wait… Why are you all the way down here?
There’s work to do!

Still not convinced that I’m the right WordPress consultant or WordPress developer for your project?
I often find that hopping on a quick 30-minute call can ease concerns.

If you’re concerned about pricing, please let me know your current situation and budget so I can help.
It’d be my pleasure to help your business start off in the right direction! 🤝
