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. What if you could have the best of both worlds?
SiteBuilders, even free, will promise a lot and then leave a lot to be desired. The better answer is WordPress.
We work with WordPress. We can install your WordPress and let you take it from there or we can design and maintain it for you, or we teach you how to use it, or we can share the work with you, and be on call when you need something special. And you’ll find that the costs are very reasonable. And you won’t have to wait weeks. In most cases, we can have things started for you in a matter of hours.
WordPress works just like Microsoft Word, with the familiar functions for BOLD, italics, bullets and so on. About a third of all the websites you see are created with WordPress. It’s very popular because it’s both easy to use and it’s very versatile in what it can do, with thousands of design “themes” and utility “plugins” to add functionality.
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 manakin. You basic information content is the manakin and you can cover it with any design Theme that you like.You can totally change the design of your web site with just a nip and tuck here and there to fit the new theme. 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?
