Harnessing WordPress to produce good looking websites

I’ve been using WordPress for several years now to create websites for online communities – it’s OpenSource software so you don’t have to pay for it, all you need is a server to run it on. Out of the box, WordPress makes very nice looking sites for your online presence, there’s a lot of sites using it and it’s regularly updated. You can have a site that’s Google search friendly, smartphone and tablet friendly without much work.  Someone told you that FaceBook is the place to be? If you have a social media presence then your site can be FaceBook and Twitter  friendly too.

A website doesn’t need to be flashy with lots of animated graphics, video’s and menus – it can be just a single page that lets folks contact you. Have a look at our other website for PAT testing to see how simple it can be – link.

If you want an online shop for your services too then I can advise on hosted solutions or software integrated in to your sites own WordPress installation.

Use your website as an online shopfront using WordPress.

Working with Google

I can advise on basic Google SEO for your site so that your website makes a global impact as soon as it’s ready to go. SEO isn’t  not a dark art, there are things you shouldn’t do but there’s an awful lot you can do that doesn’t cost pots of money.

Website hosting and maintenance

A website needs a server to run on and I can provide that too with a domain name that’s special to your business along with eMail that you can access via a webpage wherever you are.

Maintenance/Modifications to existing sites

Do you need some changes making to your existing website? Perhaps you changed your address, your hours of business, you added a phone number or eMail address but you don’t have time or the knowledge to change it yourself?

Too often the person that originally created your site is no longer around or doesn’t want to talk to you for such a trivial job.  As long as you have login details to your web host then basic changes to a page can only take a few minutes. If you don’t have them handy, then I can help you get them from your existing host.

Don’t get caught out like the Shackleton Return to Flight Project at Coventry Airport did…

EU GDPR Regulations

Data protection reforms came into effect in May 2018, the GDPR applies to ‘controllers’ and ‘processors’ of personal data, if you are currently subject to the DPA (Data Protection Act) the new GDPR may apply to you also.

If your website lets visitors sign up to a newsletter, a blog or you simply collect data using cookies for Google Analytics (for example) then you must have a Privacy Policy in place on your website. A website that doesn’t ask for personal details other than a contact number or eMail probably won’t have to worry too much about the regulations.

Not sure how to go about this or is your current web designer not able to do the job (they might be too snowed under, not reachable or just too expensive)? I can probably help…
