It seems like there are only two choices for building a web site…. Pay somebody to do it and be forever in their mercy, or being stuck with doing everything yourself.
But what if you could have the best of both worlds?
SiteBuilders, even free (or WIX), will promise a lot, and then they leave a lot to be desired.
A better answer is WordPress, with thousands of design themes, and tons of add on “plugin” functions, and most of those are free.
We work with WordPress. We can install your WordPress, show you how it works if you like, and then let you take it from there. Or, we can design and maintain it for you, or we can share the work with you and be on call whenever you need help or something special. And you’ll find that the costs are very reasonable. Don’t worry, you won’t have to wait weeks to get things done. In some cases, we can get it going for you in a matter of hours.
WordPress looks a lot like Microsoft Word, with familiar functions for BOLD, italics, bullets and so on. Actually, about a third of all the websites you see are created with WordPress.You would be surprised to see how many famous sites there are! It’s very popular because it’s both easy to use and it’s very versatile in what it can do.
Need a shopping cart? Photo gallery or carousel? Secure contact forms? Events calendar? Almost anything you can think of can be accomplished with a WordPress PlugIn. There are free plugins and paid plugins with support.
You can think of WordPress like a store mannequin. Your information and content is the mannequin, and you dress it up with your choice of a design Theme. You can totally “fit” the design with just a nip and tuck here and there. There are specialized themes for real estate and shopping carts, for professionals like dentists or photographers, or for just about any purpose you can imagine. Like the plugins, most design themes are free, more than two thousand of them, many of which can be upgraded for a small cost, but there are others available at very low cost that come with custom support by the author.
We take care of maintaining the security updates and patches for you so you don’t need to worry about checking each day. We also protect you with daily automated backups. We install WordPress on our server almost instantly and at no extra charge. If you like, we can provide on hour of personal coaching to show you how WordPress works, and we also have free online video classes to take you step by step at your own pace, with short lessons that are easy to understand and follow along.
If this sounds like what you need, then we’re here for you! The only question is: when can we start working for you?
