WordPress is a free, open source blogging tool and content management system, it is the most popular blogging system on the web, and it’s not hard to see why.
There are many plugins and themes available to WordPress users, but it’s the ability to blend the system seamlessly into any website which makes it so appealing to us.
We’ve received such positive feedback from our clients about its ease of use, and having offered basic website design with WordPress as an add-on for some time, we now install WordPress as standard with all out sites.
After building a website for a client, we produce a customised user guide based on the precise workings of the clients website. We take screenshots and give step-by-step instructions. For our clients who may never have used or heard of WordPress, this eases them into using it. Even people who have only ever used a browser to view websites are finding it easy to follow our guide, although of course we do provide technical support if needed.
WordPress gives our clients the freedom to add, update and remove content easily by logging in and following our handy guide. We don’t charge by the page because for our clients, adding and editing pages is the same as adding or editing blog posts!
WordPress lets you update your website from anywhere from any computer. No additional software is needed, just a browser and internet access. There’s even an iPhone app available! You can also add additional users with varying levels of access, so managing your website can be a team effort.
WordPress can grow with your business. Blogs, social feeds, event calendars and shopping carts can all be handled within WordPress. So as your business grows, so does your website.
We also include the WordPress SEO plugin, which is great for Google. If you’re a beginner to SEO, you get to learn the basics within WordPress as you write content for your site. The traffic light system directs you towards writing better content for search engine optimisation.
