Before we built our data center and developed our consulting offerings, we built a lot of web sites for customers. With a guy to write code and a guy with a sharp eye for design, and we could roll out sites that showcased businesses’ products and services fairly quickly.
The customers we worked with didn’t necessarily have a background in html, and couldn’t easily edit their pages without some sort of specialized software. Rather than encouraging clients to purchase Dreamweaver or Contribute, we wrote a Content Management System (CMS) that provided a user-friendly interface for inputting and editing information on the site.
Now, we turn to WordPress.
WordPress helps small and large business alike have a website that’s easy to maintain by providing a built-in content management system. While WordPress has several free themes to start you on your website adventures, a little knowledge of html and CSS will take you ever further. Custom coding and sites can easily be developed to take advantage of all WordPress has to offer as well.
In addition to the CMS, WordPress is an open-source platform, which means that developers are constantly adding new plugins, themes and tools for other users and developers. These plugins are snippets of code that run in your website to help you flash through photos in a gallery, connect clients to your social networking sites, provide a “contact us” form, or even count and track visitors to your new website.
A simple and secure WordPress login allows users to author, edit and publish pages on the website, depending on the amount of permissions given to them.
After converting our website to WordPress, we are excited to roll out our first client sites in the next few weeks. We know that our clients are excited to have a web presence that is eye-appealing, user-friendly, and cost-effective. And, we are excited to show you what a WordPress site can do for your business.
