WordPress Websites

Why WordPress?

I’ve used WordPress since 2006, when I launched my first blog. I’ve seen it grow from a simple blogging solution to a content management system (CMS) that powers 40 percent of the internet.

Why This Matters to You

WordPress’ large market share means that support for any question or issue you have is just a Google search away. There is constant development, frequent updates with improvements and security enhancements, an active support community, and a host of online resources.

Themes and plugins are always being developed to add functionality and keep up with current design trends.
You own and control your website. Want to fix a typo or add a new page or product? You can do it yourself rather than paying a professional.

WordPress has built-in search engine goodness. It’s built out of the box to organize your content in a way that will help you get found online. There is an existing plugin for just about anything you can imagine on your website — appointment booking, events calendars, e-commerce and much more.

7. WordPress Training

We’ll spend an hour or so in a virtual orientation session so you understand how to edit your website as you need. You can have as many team members as you like in our orientation session. Even if you’re experienced with WordPress, we can go over specific questions you may have.

8. Launch

When your site is complete to your satisfaction, I’ll migrate it to your domain and you’ll be up and running. This process generally takes a few hours and I try to do it during low-traffic hours.

Your Website on Mobile Devices

mobile websites

According to Statista, mobile devices generated 51.1% of global web traffic. Let’s face it — if your website isn’t mobile friendly, you’re alienating most of your audience. All of the websites I build look good and work well on mobile devices.
