WordPress Web Design

We are experts at WordPress web design. We customise this amazing tool to create beautiful optimised websites for you at a lower cost than you would think.

WordPress started out in 2003, since then it has grown to be the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

WordPress powers more than 20% of the web, a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.

We utilise this amazing tool to create beautiful websites with an amazing amount of functionality, at a lower cost than you would think. We are experts at designing sites in and around wordpress.

Some of the benefits of using wordpress:

  • It’s really simple! WordPress is built to be easy, once we have created a site around wordpress, you will find it extremely easy to log in and change your content, edit pages and upload pictures. Or we can do this for you, it’s up to you!
  • It’s really flexible! You can create any type of website with wordpress, be it a personal blog or a fully functioning website for businesses small to large, a government website, news or magazine websites.
  • It’s easy to publish! If you’ve ever created a document in Word, you’re already an expert at adding pages or blog posts to your wordpress website. Using these skills you can easily insert pictures, documents and content and with a simple click your new content is live on your site.

There is also a huge community of developers that provide (mostly) free plugins to enhance your site, making the entire process of being able to give you as much as possible for the smallest cost, easier than ever.

  • Site updates will be instant, and at your convenience
  • Because you only add the text and pictures, you don’t need to worry about the design or the frame of the website

Spread your content around

  • If you don’t have the time to sit down a few times a week to write new content, write as much as you can when you have the time and have wordpress post your new content in stages
  • If you already have a lot of content, you can easily break it up into separate posts
  • You can re-post other websites content safely without being penalised by google

Social media friendly

WordPress is the perfect tool to ensure your website is search engine optimised, as well as making sure it works on all devices. WordPress also makes it easy to incorporate your social media plans into the website.
