A Year in Review: wpWax

A Year in Review: wpWax in Waking an Upgraded 2023

Everyone has different opinions. But we can all agree that 2023 was crazy. It made up for the past few dead years. It woke the world up from sleep with shocks and surprises. We got the worst imagined catastrophes of the past with the future. We overcame the plague. And the sci-fi horror of AI ambushed us by ousting its very creators.

Going from one disaster to another, wpWax knew there’s no better time to serve. Here, we made life easier for the surprised and the frustrated in 2023. In 2023, we gave you enhanced compatibility with our most Popular WordPress Plugins. Then, we saw love on one of our most-loved agents with HelpGent. So, of course, we introduced HelpGent 2.0!

Overall, the whole year of 2023 was amazing in terms of growth and success except some screws up. To know them in detail, let’s dig deeper.

Our Overall Growth in Percent 

In 2023, wpWax saw a remarkable 37.19% increase in revenue compared to the previous year, making it a fantastic year for the company.
