Why Choose WordPress?

WordPress is probably the most user friendly and feature rich website content management system (CMS) available today. It powers approximately 30% of sites across the web and 60% of websites running a content management system…. it’s that popular! WordPress sites are modern, intuitive, easy to update and mobile friendly. Well know companies and entities using WordPress include;  BBC, Sony, The Rolling Stones, Microsoft, CNN, Vogue and Nasa.

The WordPress software is open source and free – like Android, the mobile phone operating system. It’s therefore extremely cost effective, regularly updated and secure. What’s more, for businesses wishing to maintain their site in-house, WordPress has a comprehensive dashboard that can be used to update most content easily, with just a few clicks.

And that’s not all. A site’s look and feel can be changed using pre-created Themes at the click of a button, functionality can be instantly added using a concept called Plugins and custom features can be developed using the WordPress open source codebase to create web based systems as diverse as company intranets, eCommerce sites, stock control applications and social networks.

A key feature of WordPress is it’s use of Plugins which are installable extras that provide additional functionality for specific requirements. Many plugins are devloped and maintained free of charge by the WordPress community. Some require you to pay a small annual fee for the Plugin, updates and support. However these small charges are often eclipsed by the benefits delivered such as effeciency savings, more sales and higher profits. Below are some examples of popular types of functionality added to WordPress via plugins.

  • Galleries and Sliders
  • Team Profiles
  • FAQs Management
  • Car Sales
  • Event Calendars
  • Flipbooks
  • Property Search
  • Portfolios and Catalogues

Custom Theme Development

If your company needs a specific aesthetic that can't be accomodated by an exisiting Theme, we can develop a custom Theme using the Genesis Framework. A framework is the foundation for a WordPress theme. Typically, the framework contains the core code which covers the basic features and design elements. We use the Genesis Framework because it's lightweight, robust, secure, frequently updated, respoinsive/mobile friendly, has SEO support and has been used to build over 250,000 websites.

Custom Plugin Development

If the wide range of freely available and premium Plugins do not meet your needs, we can build custom Plugins for specific business requirements so your customers can interact with your site exactly as required. Support, update and resale agreements can all be arranged.

Custom Integrations

Do you want to integrate a third party service such as a payment gateway, marketing platform, job board, pricing or quote system with your WordPress website? We have wide ranging experience in successfully delivering such solutions. Contact us now to discuss your requirements.

Contact us now to discuss your requirements with us.

There is no quick fix for SEO, it’s a long term project which requires patience and technical knowledge. We are honest about this and base our advice on facts and the data provided by the Google Search Console, Google Analytics, Google Ads and Google Shopping Feeds which we configure and manage for our customers. As well as the text, images and HTML tags there are many less visible technical aspects such as mobile usability and page speed that also effect website rankings. We work with our customers on all of these elements, thus providing a holistic service. Many SEO companies will only look at the text, images and HTML tags, leaving the more technical aspects (which are just as important) undeveloped.

There are also new technologies we support such as AMP which can boost your site’s presence on search engines. We can develop AMP websites using both native and paired methods. For more information about our SEO, Google and AMP development services, contact us now.

We offer a wide range of ancillary services such domain name registration, POP3 and IMAP e-mail as well as professional Route 53 DNS management.
