SIDEKICK is perfect for you, if...

You're new to WordPress. Instead of jumping back-and-forth between documentation, videos, and your own WordPress site, just follow the step-by-step SIDEKICK walkthroughs.

You're helping someone learn WordPress. Instead of repeatedly showing them the basics, let SIDEKICK do it for you - just install the plugin and tell them which walkthroughs to follow.

You build WordPress sites or products for a living (or fun). Reduce your training and support costs by installing Sidekick on client websites.

Looking for a non-WordPress solution?

Sidekick works with any web application, requiring no app or browser extension downloads for the user.
