As one of the foremost used Content Management Systems (CMS), WordPress powers over 60 million sites, from individual bloggers to large multinationals. With a desire not to 'reinvent the wheel' it is our preferred platform from which we design, build and extend websites. From basic to more complex sites, all the sites we build are built using WordPress.
From experience it is by far the most intuitive content management system on the market - we have many happy customers managing the content on their site without difficulty.
One of the benefits of WordPress is that our clients are happy with its ease of use, with an interface which is similar to Microsoft Word. Through a simple training session our customers are left with the confidence that they can manage and add content, such as pages, blog posts, videos and images to their site without the need to rely on us for day-to-day changes. However, for those who don't have the time or inclination to do so, we're happy to step in.
Some people think your website can only be unique if it's built on a bespoke or niche platform. That the more complex something is, the more special it is. We'd disagree. WordPress is fully customisable with millions of sites built on the platform which are unique to the individual or business. We like to think that each website we build is different from any that came before it. We use our knowledge and experience to customise and develop websites on WordPress which are entirely suited to you and your audience.
Using WordPress we build a broad spectrum of e-commerce sites, from a small number of simple products to multiple categories, brands and variable products. We use WooCommerce which is known as ‘the most customisable e-commerce plugin‘ offering us, to date, endless options on the e-commerce websites we've built. Some of the more comprehensive websites in our portfolio are built using WooCommerce but with a view to generating sales leads rather than a direct online sale, suitable for more technically complex marketplaces.
Going quickly are the days where your website had a 'mobile version'. All of our websites are fully responsive meaning that they are viewable on mobile, tablet and desktop devices. With statistics showing that approximately 60% of visits to sites and over 30% of online orders come from mobile and tablet devices, we feel this is a must for all the websites we produce and not an add on.
The beauty of websites built using WordPress is that you should never find yourself in a position where you have a website which no developer will be able to help you with. We take on existing WordPress websites which have been built by other agencies and developers. Bymigrating them over to our hosting solution we can then maintain and support them effectively for our customers. We offer support in a range of ways such as maintaining WordPress, theme and plugin updates to prevent security risks and ensure the site remains fully functional; making changes to the aesthetics and design; adding content and news items. Whether based locally in Cumbria or further afield and in need of a change, we want to work with you to ensure you get the most from your website.
