A well designed website is the cornerstone of any online presence. Without a great site even the best products are liable to miss their intended audiences.
While there are many valuable services on the web that vie for your time and attention (Youtube, Facebook, Yelp, etc), a personal site is essential for creating a hub of interaction. You want a “homebase” that will pull customers in and provide them with a positive experience.
Creating a top-notch website is a mixture of the following qualities:
- Information Architecture
- Intuitive Navigation
- Eye Catching Graphic Design
- “Up to Date” Look and Feel
- Logical Calls to Action
- Conversion Based Construction
- Clean Back End Coding
- Proper SEO Practices
I have experience creating WordPress based websites that meet all of these criteria.
What’s WordPress and Why Use It?
If you’re not familiar with WordPress, know that it first became popular as a blogging platform. WordPress’s intuitive design and easy-to-use interface attracted users from all over the world. This was at a time when blogging was still a funny sounding word, and being able to accomplish anything online was a feat of technological know-how. To have this kind of interface, where truly anybody could understand and use it, was revolutionary.
In time, WordPress released their software for anybody to use. Now, web designers can take the power of WordPress and apply it to any website.
In addition, countless web developers have been hard at work developing “templates”, which are essentially skeletons of websites that can be easily enhanced and built upon.
The end result is this – by using WordPress, businesses can get amazing looking websites for a fraction of the cost, with a much reduced time investment, and have access to a backend that any user can understand. If you can use Microsoft Word, you can use WordPress to add content and media to your website.
