Tom Hirst, owner of Run The Show

Run The Show is me and my small team of friends with big talent.

We're digital strategists, web developers and web designers who make websites, eCommerce stores and apps for serious business on WordPress.

Search-loved and conversion-focused technical WordPress work is our speciality.

We work remotely, with clients and collaborators all around the world.

My 12 years in the WordPress space has seen me consult on projects for the likes of the NHS, Umbro and Facebook. Many smaller-sized businesses too.

I created Run The Show in 2020 to help more businesses on WordPress thrive using the headless approach I believe in.

And to build tools that leverage this exciting technology stack in effective new ways.

If you want to build something custom on WordPress, we'd love to work with you.

Why headless WordPress?

People love WordPress, React is here to stay and Jamstack is the future.

WordPress is the world's most popular CMS.

React is the JavaScript framework of choice for millions of websites.

The Jamstack architecture's popularity for creating modern web experiences continues to accelerate. It's all for good reason:

WordPress back-ends are recognisable, easy to use and great for managing content. JavaScript generated front-ends are fast, secure and scalable.

Pairing the two gets you the best of both worlds.

Headless WordPress makes business sense for people looking to reach the next level online while retaining editorial familiarity.

This approach will take you far.
