It used to be that design was king but in today's market - it's really all about the content. While I love to create new designs: I believe that most needs can be met by using WordPress (which is a free content management system (CMS)) and by purchasing a quality theme that has all the bells and whistles you'll ever need... and with the money you'll save - you can hire that copywriter that you really do need. *grin
WordPress has retained ease-of-use for a number of years and the features list has grown exponentially.
If you can send an email or create a word document - you can learn WordPress without feeling overwhelmed.
Premium WordPress themes give you the ability to create sites that look absolutely amazing - at an average price of about $50!
There are so many quality plug-ins for WordPress that you’d be hard pressed to think of any functionality you cannot quickly add to a WordPress site.
It makes WordPress a system that’s constantly evolving and improving, with new functions being added all the time.
With the addition of a few plugins you can force yourself to maintain good SEO discipline and give your site the best change of good search results.
So just how much will it cost?
Wordpress itself is free but you'll still need hosting, a quality theme, and installation services. I can get your site up and running within 4 hours (@ $60/hour) on the host of your choice with the theme of your choice.
Your theme will need to represent your company. I can help you select a great quality theme and make sure it's the right one for you. Most premium themes cost an average of $50 and I'll send you a few examples of the ones I think will work best.
I'll install some basic plugins to help keep your site secure (Wordfence Security) and to help with search engine optimization (Google Analytics for Wordpress and Wordpress SEO). Other plugins can be installed on request.
The best part of WordPress is that I can teach you to update and manage your own site. Whether you're a complete technophobe or already familiar with WordPress, I can customize each lesson around you. Lessons are $60/hour and are scheduled as needed.
What people are saying...
"I was having a very difficult time finding a web designer who was honest, helpful and willing to teach me what I needed to know to continue to run my business and update my website. Hillary of ONNA web design was highly recommended to me by a consultant that I was working with at the time and wiithin a few sessions Hillary had both me and my website functioning more smoothly. The way that she explained everything to me took the confusion away and working with my wordpress site actually became fun. Hillary was always there when we set up our meetings and she always could jump in where I needed her. I would highly recommend Hillary to anyone who wants to become more empowered with their own wordpress website. Thank you Hillary for being such a great teacher."
