WordPress

The perfect platform for creative clients

What is WordPress?

WordPress is an open source project that began years ago when Blogging started to evolve.  Since then WordPress has become not just a Blog platform, but a sophisticated Content Management System that can be used as a website, or as a Blog or both.  It is supported by thousands of Developers around the world, building the WordPress core, Theme and Plugins.

WordPress Plugins are like extra functionality for your website.  Want to run an eCommerce store?  No problem!  Want to have a private member’s area where only client’s can login?  WordPress can do that too.  In fact, there is very little WordPress as a platform can’t handle.

WordPress Upgrades

From time to time WordPress, it’s Plugins and Themes are updated.  Once your site is built, I will arrange to have your site updated regularly so that your site is using the latest versions of WordPress, Themes and Plugins.

Best practice dictates that your site should be updated regularly for security reasons.

 

Design

WordPress is easy to make look fresh and professional.  There are a millions of Themes available for WordPress.  I can create a customised Theme for you using one of the popular Theme Frameworks available. A WordPress Theme controls all the design aspects of your site.

What I Do

Contact me.  Tell me about your vision for your Website.  I will come up with a great solution for you.

If you don’t know what you want or need that’s fine too.  I will help you determine the best strategy and platform for your needs.

You will also be able to Blog Posts your own site.  I can provide you with training if you are interested in doing this.

Update the site content yourself

One of the reasons my clients just love WordPress is because they can add content, such as Blog Posts to the site themselves.  I will train you how to do this if you so desire.  I also have clients that get me to to do everything.  You can take on as much or as little as you feel comfortable with, at a pace that feels right for you.

The Techie Stuff

I do all the back end upgrades of WordPress, it’s Plugins and Themes for my clients – in fact none of my clients want to do this and I suggest they don’t.  WordPress is a complex platform and so I save you from all the technical headaches with upgrades and major changes.

The other great thing about WordPress is that I can redesign the look of your site again a few years down the track if required.  I have clients that I built sites for years ago and some of them have been through several design changes every couple of years.  This is because WordPress uses Themes and so it’s possible to change the design without starting entirely from the beginning.

So I see the WordPress platform a long term website solution for clients, and every few years we can just give it a new look.
