Earlier this year I interviewed Ned Dwyer on his upcoming ThemePivot WordPress customization service. It has now been relaunched as Tweaky, a marketplace for all kinds of website customization in the form of “Tweaks”, which are minor customizations to a website. While Tweaky is currently primarily WordPress-focused, the service has broadened its offering to any CMS. Tweaks start at just $25.
How does it work?
Tweaky customers submit a project brief via the Tweaky project form. Depending on the complexity of the project, you will usually get a response back from them within a few hours. The team will break your project down into a series of $25 tweaks. You then have the chance to approve the tweaks you want to complete and a hand-selected developer will get the job done for you.
What kind of jobs is Tweaky good for?
Projects appropriate for Tweaky are usually smaller, finite items, such as, but not limited to:
- Customizing a WordPress theme
- Migrating a site to a new server
- Minor design tweaks
- Cross-browser compatibility issues
- Adding emails subscriptions, logos, new sidebars, etc
Tweaky is an excellent service for website owners who do not want to have to advertise for a developer and then try to sift through a sea of applications just to get a few small changes accomplished. You know that you need a developer but you may not know how to vet a quality developer. That’s where Tweaky really shines, as their developers have excellent communication skills and have already passed a series of code reviews to qualify. They also make a full backup of your site before beginning any work. With the 100% money back satisfaction guarantee, you can’t go wrong in giving them a try. Check out some recent tweaks on the Tweaky homepage and see if the service is right for you!
