The majority of the websites we now develop are WordPress-based websites because WordPress offers tremendous flexibility when it comes to adding website features and making layout changes. We do still offer traditional non-WordPress sites; please contact us for more information about these types of websites.
For more information about WordPress website development, please see the interactive below. Our fee schedule and a list of “what’s included” follows. Please note that three hours of on-site or remote WordPress training is included with all new sites (on-site training depends upon geographic location).
One of the major advantages of working with WordPress is that sites that run WordPress are as simple to edit as writing an email or using Microsoft Word. One simply logs into the website’s control panel and from there content, images and other changes can rapidly and easily be made.
WordPress is designed to make editing and changing the look and feel or your site an easy process WordPress uses templates (commonly called “themes”) that allow you to change how your site looks. So if you initially start out with one theme and later on you re-brand or simply want a fresh design, updating your site’s theme is a straightforward process.
WordPress is expandable and allows you to add features to your website with small programs called “plugins”. While adding certain features to a non-WordPress site may be expensive and take many hours of customize coding, there are large array of free or low-cost WordPress plugins that allow you to add features to your site. Some of these features include the ability to add a contact form to your site and to integrate your website with an email newsletter signup form.
Please note that domain name registration and website hosting are not included. While we will help you register and configure your domain names and web hosting, the client pays domain name registration fees to the domain name registrar (~ $15/yr), and web hosting fees to the web hosting provider..
