We LOVE working with WordPress. For us, it has made web design and maintenance a lot simpler. We used to cringe when new browser versions were released knowing that something was going to break. We’d end up having to go into dozens of websites and rework all types of things just to get it to look right. Yikes. And that was even just for the most basic of functionality in many cases.
WordPress allows us to add in very advanced functionality and know that it will continue to work with a simple update as changes come along. Sure sometimes we do have to go in and work directly with the code, but for the most part? We can just update it and it will handle the newest browsers or fend off the newest security issue. Those “advanced” features that were only available with a whole lot of custom pricey coding are now available to you with WordPress. Learn more about WordPress at WordPress.org.
They Look Great!
Above all, the greatest thing for the business website is that they can look great out of the box! We still see a bunch of “ugh” type websites that look like they were created like business flyers out on the web. A good WordPress theme can have the visual impact of cool image-sliders showcasing your business images with descriptive text floating in, interesting layouts that handle all types of platforms like wide desktop displays down to little handheld smartphones, fancy contact forms or online questionnaires, and a whole lot more.
We usually start off with a “framework” or “theme” that allows us to take a particular layout or set of functionality that the customer wants and then modify it with customer color schemes, adding in extra content areas, adding other functions unique to the customer. What you end up with is a nice unique look specific to your company. Even better, if you ever want to change the whole look of your website, it is very possible to do without having to build the whole thing all over again. The theme can simply be replaced. Want a fall, winter, spring, summer, or special holiday theme? It’s all possible – and a lot less expensive than you’d think! We use a number of backend frameworks including Genesis by StudioPress, Elegant Themes and more.
Adding Content to your website is a snap
You can add pages or posts in just minutes including optimized images and graphics. You can have “fancy” layouts or even just keep it simple depending on your own tastes. Galleries, blogs, slideshows – it’s all possible with a WordPress website. WordPress makes it simple for even the most webophobic user out there. There might be some things that you’ll still want to contact us to help you with, but when you get that great idea, you should be able to pop it on your website without the wait.
Search Engine Friendly
WordPress out of the box is extraordinarily friendly for search engine optimization. With a minimal understanding of creating search engine friendly websites, WordPress can make your internet site stand out from the rest. By creating proper tags, titles, optimized images, and more, WordPress makes creating a good SEO website a whole lot easier. When you have a company like Outside Raleigh doing the original creation and building of your new WordPress website, your site is sure to be noticed by the search engines!
