A Professional Business Website
WordPress is a great system for putting a site together and has been designed so a basic website can be created by anyone, even if they have limited technical experience and no coding knowledge. However, with so many different options, creating a website from scratch with WordPress can be a daunting and time consuming process if you are unfamiliar with the system.
In addition, WordPress is Open Source. This means is that it allows access to the code behind allowing intricate tweaks to be made by a professional web developer, opening up the potential to create the perfect website that is an asset to your business.
We pride ourselves on creating a website you will love and that will serve your business. At the end of the process, we will hand the website over to you so you can continue to update your content or we can discuss the continued management of your website through one of our SEO packages. If you wish to update your own content but are unfamiliar with WordPress, we can also provide training to ensure you get the best out of your website.
What is 'WordPress'?
If you have spoken to someone about getting a website or you have done a bit of digging around on Google regarding the topic, then you have probably come across 'WordPress' and quite possibly heard that it’s a great option for creating a professional and affordable website for your business.
When you go onto a website, you can see that it is made up of words, pictures, maybe some videos, etc.... This information changes regularly on most sites, there may be recent news articles, blogs, events, promotions, etc… depending on the type of site you are viewing. All of this information is created and updated using a Content Management System. This system allows anyone to update their website without needing to know anything about it's inner workings. WordPress is one of many Content Management Systems out there and is by far the most popular.
Having been around since 2003, WordPress is a well established system with thousands of themes and plugins available so you can create a site you love.
When you navigate a website, all the pages will have a consistent look and feel to them so that whatever page you are on, you know you are still on the site. This is what a theme does, it creates a framework with consistent structure, colour, fonts, etc… so that all the pages within that framework look like they belong together.
Very few websites today are made up purely of text and images appearing statically on a screen. There is usually a contact form allowing readers to get in touch. Ecommerce sites will have products with pricing and the ability to purchase online. There may be a sliding banner across the top that changes the picture every few seconds. Maybe a set of ‘share’ buttons to allow you to share the page to your favourite social media platform. These are all done with plugins; little modules that can be installed on your website for additional functionality.
