In 2011, Michael Bastos created the Advanced WordPress Group on Facebook to provide a place for people to gather and discuss advanced WordPress topics. After being featured on the Tavern in the Summer of 2014, membership skyrocketed from 7,400 members to over 10,000. Nearly two years later, the group has surpassed 20,000 members.
To celebrate the milestone, the group is hosting a giveaway that includes more than $40K in prizes, a number of which are licenses to commercial WordPress products. Prizes include:
- Licenses to Yoast SEO Premium
- Elegant Themes Lifetime Accounts
- WP Rocket Personal Licenses
- One Free Year of GoDaddy Hosting
- One Free Year of MediaTemple Hosting
There’s also a handful of WordPress books up for grabs as well. In order to qualify to win one of the prizes, you need to be a member of the group. You also need to register through this Rafflecopter widget so the group obtains your email ID. It will be used as the primary means of contact in case you win. Winners will be chosen randomly when the giveaway ends July 8th.
Thanks for sharing the news Jeff! It’s a huge milestone for us, but it’s only as good as the quality of the group is. Fortunately, with 30+ Admins and members who keep contributing quality questions and resources and conversations it continues to bring value to thousands of WordPressers every day.
