Have you been looking for Wordpress help but keep from doing anything because all the so-called experts out there try over-selling you stuff that is good for them but not so good for you? That was my situation and after talking to several of these Wordpress fixers I found Chuck Hardwick a breath of fresh air. Very helpful and very focused on what I needed for both Web hosting and a new Wordpress theme. Chuck moved me to a new hosting platform that is SO MUCH BETTER than where I had been for the last ten years!! He then recommended a Wordpress theme I had never heard of but guess what --- exactly what I needed because it is simple and easy to use but very flexible. Bottom-line --- just the help I needed to get my Wordpress site out of my old box and into something new and functional.
Chuck from Dancing Panda Marketing was a big help with getting me set up in the right direction with my Word Press website. We were able to get a lot accomplished through our zoom meetings. Great, clear teaching skills and successful guidance. I will be continuing to use Chuck's consulting and tutoring to grow and build out our site, along with the marketing and SEO. Thank you Chuck!
I have used Dancing Panda Marketing's consulting services on a number of occasions, most recently for YouTube consulting and Zoom consultant. Chuck is so responsive and helpful any time I reach out, and has always been able to resolve my problems/answer my questions right away! I can't recommend them highly enough. Im very pleased with how my projects turned out. Very knowledgeable, professional, and timely customer service every time.
Nothing like dealing with someone who is not only professional, but super nice and patient on top of that. He helped me put my web site together at BaronsBBQBeat.com and is always there for me when I need a fix on something. Very responsive! Highly recommended!
Wow, wow, wow!!! I had been struggling for months on trying to make the WordPress blog for our podcast an actual blog that was more than just a generic page with zero content. After a 1 hour tutorial/zoom call with Chuck, he not only made that happen, but taught this old blog dog some new tricks and made it so easy to comprehend and jump right in. Chuck is so patient, understanding, and he is just great at what he does. I highly recommend his services and I look forward to working with him more in the future. Thank you so much, Chuck, you are awesome!
Chuck was great! He pulled back the curtain on Word Press and allowed me to make changes and upgrades that I was finding difficult. I highly recommend him not for his knowledge but his patience.

Dancing Panda Marketing is a great resource for any small business. Chuck Hardwick can help with building websites and has many creative ideas for improving SEO. Highly recommend!
Brilliant Marketing strategies made easy enough for anyone to understand, even if you are just getting started!
I own a small business that is well established, but was slowly losing internet visibility over time. I contacted Chuck at Dancing Panda Marketing in December of 2017 to help build a new website and marketing strategy. I was able to get immediate instruction and assistance, and I continue to consult with him to fine tune my business.
I had immediate success and accomplished far more in the the first hour with Dancing Panda Marketing than I had with previous tutors. I didn't have unlimited funds for marketing services. His services are affordable, the level of professionalism and his personal attention are outstanding. I have made tremendous gains in regenerating my business' exposure towards it's former success. I greatly appreciate his help!

Chuck Hardwick is a WordPress and SEO consultant that works from his home office in Ocean Beach, San Diego. Chuck was born in Florida and attended Florida State University in Tallahassee where he studied Computer Science and Economics but has lived in San Diego County for more than 20 years. Chuck began his career as a database programmer and network manager but has been involved in internet marketing since 2003. In 2014 Chuck founded his own company at https://dancingpandamarketing.com/ as well as the Ocean Beach Networking Group https://obnetworking.com/. In his downtime, Chuck enjoys tennis, cycling, snow skiing, and surfing.
What was your background before you became a WordPress consultant?
I started studying computer science in high school and have made my living by understanding how to leverage technology my entire career. In 2003, I was hired by LawInfo.com and got very interested in internet marketing. Because I moved to San Diego from Oceanside in 2007 for personal reasons, I started working for Internet Matrix in 2007 and continued to learn about Internet marketing. I left Internet Matrix in 2014 to form my own company at https://dancingpandamarketing.com/and I love it! I work from home, so I set my own schedule and don’t have to commute anymore. Also, I can work when traveling ( as long as I have WiFi ), which is a bonus!
Was there any defining moment that led you to pursue your current path?
Actually, I was inspired in elementary school to learn about computers and programming by my teacher Ms. Jankowski who mentioned that the computer field was exploding and there would be many opportunities by the time we graduated college. As I studied programming, I really loved it. Getting a program to work was like solving a puzzle it felt good. When I got into SEO later, I remember getting a chiropractic client in Maryland to the top of Google to the number one spot. Shortly after I got that number one ranking for him, he told me he was starting to get phone calls from new patients. I solved the Google puzzle and got paid for it and it felt great!
Tell us a little about some of the projects/works that you have created?
I have created websites for chiropractors, massage therapists, lawyers, software developers, window cleaners, sales coaches, stand up comedians, and the Ocean Beach Networking Group. You can see samples of my work at https://dancingpandamarketing.com/portfolio/ .
Who would you say are the entrepreneurs that have influenced you the most?
My parents definitely did a good job of encouraging me as a kid. I started hustling as a young kid by cutting lawns, raking leaves, babysitting, etc. I even drove a Taxi in high school. My Dad always used to tell me I could be whatever I wanted and supported me, although he really wanted me to go to Law School and I ended up as a computer geek. He has supported me my entire life and still continues to do so even though he has been retired for a while. I learned a lot from some of the entrepreneurs I worked for in office jobs I have had, but I don’t think anyone reading this would recognize their names. They all had one thing in common, A strong work ethic.
What are some of the challenges that you have faced and how do you face new challenges?
When I started my own company in 2014, I only had one client who is a chiropractor in New York. I knew that I needed to do some networking to get more clients, so I started the Ocean Beach Networking Group. I worked my ass off to get the group established and after about 6 months, I did not garner any clients from all of this effort and nearly gave up. Then in one week, I got 3 new clients, so I continued on. The Networking Group has continued to provide me with a steady stream of leads ever since. It’s a true labor of Love, but it did not happen as quickly as I would have hoped.
What work are you most proud of?
I am proud to have successfully started my own company and that I get so many referrals from happy customers. I have some great reviews from happy customers on portals like Google Maps, LinkedIn, and Facebook.
