WordPress Website Development
I create all client websites using the WordPress platform and have been for the last 5 years. The reason is because of its flexibility and widespread support. Essentially, there is no reason to use anything else because WordPress can pretty much do it all.
When you start thinking about a new website, your natural thought is to make a flashy, engaging design that stands out. There’s nothing wrong with making your site appealing, but if that’s all you focus on, you run the risk of alienating your customers by not focusing on other critically important design aspects. In addition to an attractive design, there are other important considerations:
Your Website should load fast – Even just a second in additional load time reduces the number of people who stay on your website
It is optimized for Search Engines (SEO) – I make sure yours is completely optimized for SEO
Navigation is simple – Make the design too flashy and creative, and people will leave
As an experienced WordPress website designer, I know what works and what doesn’t. If what you are considering will not work, I will show you an alternative method of accomplishing your goals.
Maintaining Your WordPress Website
After your website is complete, it is important that you keep it up to date and add new content to ensure visitors find it useful. My website maintenance services include the following:
Updating the WordPress system software and plugins – Sometimes these can cause issues with the performance or functionality of your website.
Backing up your website data – If your site’s data is ever lost by your hosting service, the backup replaces that data. It doesn’t occur often, but it can happen.
Reduce security risks – Whenever updates or changes are made to WordPress it may become vulnerable to new security threats. I will identify these risks and reduce your site’s vulnerability to them.
Keeping up with Google – I will ensure your site’s coding and navigation remains friendly to both visitors and search engines.
Updating your website as needed – WordPress is the simplest and most intuitive of all content management systems, but sometimes you will still need assistance to make the visual changes you want.
Optimizing your site’s speed – Updates or changes you choose to make, technology, or higher traffic can cause your site to load slower.
