Today, I’m very excited to announce that the WPBeginner Growth Fund has acquired an interest in Uncanny Owl, the parent company of a fast growing WordPress automation plugin, Uncanny Automator, and a range of e-learning plugins for WordPress .
Over 25,000 websites use Uncanny Owl plugins to automate and grow their businesses.
About Uncanny Owl and Uncanny Automator Plugin
Uncanny Owl is a Toronto-based WordPress company founded by Ryan Moore and Ken Young.
They specialize in automating WordPress-based learning platforms and member sites to provide compelling e-learning solutions.
Her team is behind the fast growing WordPress automation plugin Uncanny Automator, which enables you to automate various WordPress administration tasks to save time and money.
It integrates seamlessly with many popular WordPress plugins and third-party platforms, so you can easily create automation recipes without writing any code (300+ triggers and actions).
In plain English, it helps your WordPress plugins talk to each other so you can do cool things like:
Let 2 WordPress sites talk to each other – sell products on one while creating users and setting up access on another. Create buttons that allow you to automatically create user accounts and perform other actions in WordPress. Add custom user attributes to user profiles based on the user’s actions. Trigger automation recipes in one plugin from the action of another plugin (e.g. a submission from WPForms can be used to register a user in MemberPress, add them to a BuddyBoss group and add a calendar event). Connect your WordPress site to over 2000 external services through a single Zapier integration. … and so much more
Uncanny Owl is also known for its popular Uncanny Toolkit and other e-learning extensions.
Backstory – Why Scary Owl?
I got to know the Uncanny Owl brand through the Uncanny Automator plugin because I’ve always wished that something like this existed in WordPress.
The ability of two plugins to communicate with each other and seamlessly automate tasks is a dream come true.
What’s even better is that you can do it on two websites without writing any code. The moment I saw it, I was like … this is Zapier for WordPress.
The fact that they had already developed the product that would save website owners a lot of time made me want to work with them.
Coincidentally, two of our mutual friends, Artur and Chris from Extendify, got in touch and asked me if I would be interested in talking to the founders of Uncanny Owl about a deeper partnership.
My answer was absolute!
After a few conversations we decided to join forces.
I have invested in the scary owl business through the WPBeginner Growth Fund and will advise the team on expanding their WordPress product business.
At Awesome Motive, we have years of experience creating popular WordPress plugins that are used by over 15 million websites, including OptinMonster, WPForms, MonsterInsights and many more.
Not to mention, our other WPBeginner growth fund portfolio companies like MemberPress, Formidable Forms, Pretty Links, Wholesale Suite, and others have seen tremendous growth over the years.
When we share our combined knowledge with Uncanny Owl, we can all better serve the larger WordPress community.
I’m very excited to be working with Ryan, Ken and the entire team to accelerate their growth in 2021 and beyond.
Thank you for your continued support to WPBeginner.
