What’s WordPress CMS?
WordPress is the market-leading CMS (Content Management System). Some two-third of all modern website design packages are built on this platform. WordPress is easy to use for both technical and non-technical folks. And it’s wicked powerful and scalable. That makes it sustainable and feature-rich. Yes, you can edit it yourself. But perhaps even more important is that the most number of developers work in this platform so you can change or add consultants anytime ~ yes, you can fire us too in a heart beat if we screw up.
Why WordPress Over a Free Website Design Service?
If you’re serious about business, you’re well-advised to build a scalable site that can handle a significant amount of traffic in the future. Do-it-yourself free website design services with cheap hosting are fine for starter or individual sites. But soon you’ll likely find they’re too limiting for gaining significant business and search traction.
What’s StudioPress WP Theme?
Themes are short-cut templates that sit on top of a CMS such as WordPress. In essence, themes include pre-formatted graphics, fonts and layouts. They’re just a starting point and they’re entirely customizable. Using themes will save huge time and money in website design. Beware, however, that all themes are not created equally. They vary from free to costing hundreds of dollars. On the cheaper end, many themes have dysfunctional code that won’t perform well. So look to use only the most reputable and proven themes. In our case, we prefer StudioPress themes, which prove extremely solid and well-designed. Because we’ve purchased their buyout package, we don’t charge you for use of StudioPress themes if we design a website for you.
What’s Does ‘Responsive’ Website Design Mean?
Responsive website design refers to engineering content that re-stacks and re-scales to fit any size screen from desktops to pads to smart phones. The trend in site visitation via small format devices is clear. Typically, small format viewing represents a third to half of all viewings. This makes it extremely important to build responsive sites. Even more important, search engines such as Google now give higher rankings to responsive websites. So if you don’t embrace this trend, you’ll lose search traction.
Can I Have My Own Customer URL?
Yes. One of the huge benefits of going with a professional quality CMS service is that you can own your URL (website address). That’s great from a branding standpoint. You should own your identity and protect intuitive channels to you business.
Can I Edit My Own Content?
Yes. With WordPress, you don’t have to be a techie or geek to to edit your own website design. Text, pictures, videos, menu structures, blog posts, portfolio posts, testimonials and more are all within easy reach.
What’s Included in Edit Training?
In just an hour, we can run you through the entire WordPress edit dashboard. Training can be live in person or via screen share. With this training, you’re empowered to update your content anytime you wish. We’ll also train you on the basics of writing web content. Folks consume content differently on the Internet, as do search engines. So we’ll give you a primer on how to communicate well in this new medium.
What’s a ‘Web Readability’ Edit?
Writing for the Internet is a unique animal. Folks skim. They want it fast and efficient. They want it fun. Captivating. When writing for the Internet, you should know how to seed keywords that pull in search engines. We’re uniquely good at this and include it with every website design and development project.
What Social Media Channels Can You Integrate?
All. And it’s easy. It’s just a matter of addressing links. The hard part is filling up those feeds. But social marketing is essential to any search optimization strategy, and thus essential to your overall web marketing strategy. We’ll hookup as many channels as you can fill the pipe on.
What’s a ‘SandBox’ Development Site?
A Sandbox is an unpublished site where we create your website without the world seeing it until you’re ready. When we begin work on your site design, we’ll issue credentials for as many contributors as needed to get your content in and processed.
What are ‘Plugins’?
Plugins are extra features that can be added to your site. Common examples include: Analytics, SEO, Social, Calendar, Testimonials, Forms and Pricing Tables. We include some of these plugins as part of every website build. But others cost extra on a per-user basis, as all users don’t need the same plugins.
What’s Maintenance & Hosting?
Your website files need to reside somewhere (on a “Hosting Server”) for viewers to access your files. Since files need to be transferred over the Internet before being read on a viewer’s computer, the issue of “bandwidth” (the speed with which information is transferred) is always a key consideration when selecting a listing environment. The discussion gets deeper from there. Considerations also flow to host server optimization for servicing the type of site you run and a myriad of other details and settings. Bottom line: it’s all important. It all affects your site’s performance and effect. To rank high, use premium WordPress hosting services.
