Whether you are looking for a redesign of an existing website or a new site from scratch, you have come to the right place. I deliver visually attractive and technically sound websites that effectively communicate with your audience and that helps reach your business’ bottom line.
It is a powerful content management system that allows you to make content changes yourself. By choosing to have your website built in WordPress, you, as a business owner, can strike a balance between a costly, high-design website and a free website that doesn’t really present a professional image. I build professional websites that are customized to represent your brand and that are properly optimized for search engines and built to bring you new business.
WordPress has many advantages, one being that with thousands of plugins available, I can help you add all kinds of functionality to your site, like social media sharing, E-Commerce, SEO, photo slideshows, and much more.
Websites built in WordPress are easy to update. If you can create a Word document, you can publish a new article to your WordPress website. Once it is set up, you can update it anytime you want, and that is important for engagement with your visitors and for the search engines. If you would rather I take care of content and plugin updates, I am happy to do so.
Google loves WordPress sites because they are updated more frequently, and the content tends to be structured well.
Every website I build is responsive. With around 45% of all website traffic now coming from mobile and tablet devices it is essential for a website to function and to look good just the same on smaller screens.
The web design process
Once you decide that you would like a new website, I sit down with you (either in person or over the phone) and talk about your goals regarding your new site. With your input on how it should look and what it should be able to do, I will design a mockup. Depending on your budget you can choose to have more than one mockup designed. You then give me your input and I make changes until you are happy with the result.
During the next phase, I will install WordPress, choose a theme and plugins and make customizations through font, colour and layout choices so that your new website represents your brand. Often, the design of custom graphics is part of the design process.
Once the site is customized, I start filling in the content. You get to watch the progress of the site and you can give me your input throughout. To make the new site as SEO friendly as possible, I write technical content for every page in the form of meta title and description tags.
Before the site goes live, it goes through thorough testing to ensure that everything looks great and works well.
