WordPress is open source content management software and currently powers around 35% of all websites on the Internet. The project is contributed to by tens of thousands of developers all over the world and is growing from strength to strength. WordPress allows us to develop flexible and customizable websites to modern standards and observes web development best practices. Furthermore, the community of web developers that use WordPress reaches far and wide and allows us to tap into this collective intelligence and bring that wealth of experience to your project.
Assuming you subscribe to a Website Care Plan, we will host your website. A Website Care Plan relieves you from the stress of maintaining databases, updating software, and fixing problems when they happen. If you choose not to host with us, you are responsible to manage the website’s technical requirements.
Provided you subscribe to one of our ongoing Website Care Plans, we will be your first point of call should something go wrong with your website. We will determine what caused the error, build a plan, and ultimately fix it for you.
Once your website is launched, we will provide support to make sure any bugs have been ironed out and that you are confident in sending users to your new website. You will need to subscribe to our Website Care Plan to make sure your website is looked after and maintained. Website Care includes updating your software, regular backups, security checks and making sure your website is online and open for business 24/7.
The time it takes for your website to appear on page 1 of Google depends on a number of factors. It depends on the search phrases people are using to find your website and the number of other websites competing for those search phrases. Nobody can truly say how long it will take for your website to appear at the top of search engine results pages (including people who actually work for Google), however, there are a number of factors that can improve your chances. Building your website on WordPress is a good start as WordPress has some great search engine optimization fundamentals built-in.
Creating unique and interesting content on a regular basis for your website is also critical to increase your visibility amongst search engines.
Launching your website and then forgetting about it is a surefire way to get lost amongst the noise.
If you want to be more aggressive in climbing the search engine rankings, we offer Marketing Plans that can fast track your success. We are happy to talk to more about a Marketing Plan if we haven’t already.
If you subscribe to a Website Care Plan, we will install Google Analytics software on your new website and provide you with reports where you can see a wide range of statistics about your website including the number of visits, page views than the amount of time people are spending on your website.
We can also provide a more detailed analysis of your website's performance and recommendations on how to improve.
Whilst we like to be flexible and responsive to your needs, we also like to deliver what we promise within the time frames and budgets we have allowed. If you ask us to add new features to your website while we are building it, we will most likely ask why? If we all agree that your new request will help us achieve our objectives then we will be more than happy to oblige. If your new feature is something you would like to add to your website but is not directly tied to your original objectives then we will suggest to schedule it for a second iteration of the website once it has been launched. This will require a new proposal.
While we know you work with a great team, we ask that you assign 1 person for us to work with. In our experience, too many cooks in the kitchen lead to confusion and sacrifices the end goal.
