WordPress Development

I build rich mobile-ready WordPress websites that focus on ROI. You will want someone who is highly experienced in engineering WordPress and working with it’s supporting technologies. If the idea is possible to do using WordPress, I can code it. New challenges are always welcome. I will customize WordPress to unlock it’s true potential, creating the perfect digital publishing platform for your small business.

 

Search Engine Optimization

Having your website appear as the first search engine result is crucial for people finding your business. I bring more visitors to your site by improving your ranking in search engines and building your online presence. Then I convent more of those visitors into customers by improving your sites usability.

Marketing and Branding

I believe that your brand and identity is a key driver of your small business’ perception, so I mix creative graphic design skills, marketing strategy and analytical mobile web-code to produce branding and identity that is both purposeful and unforgettable. These assets will make your small business stand out with ads, event posters and business cards that are attractive to your audience.

 

Full Security and Integrity

You can rest assured that your website will be backed up at all times.  I back up each site once a day at 1:00AM EST to cloud storage automatically and if you decide you no longer require my services, you will not only receive your domain back with no issues (I will never own your domain in any way) – but you will also receive a fully cloned backup of your website for migration.

A Little Insight.

Picking a web developer to build your mobile-ready site is starts with knowing what people want.

People use mobile devices to get to websites 49% of the time as of January 2014, and it’s expected to grow.

Here’s what people are going to websites on mobile devices for currently.

A recent Google survey of mobile users found that 72 percent of mobile users say it’s important to them that websites are mobile-friendly, yet 96 percent have visited a site that doesn’t work well on their device.

So what, exactly, are consumers looking for in a website accessed from a mobile device?

Information in just one or two clicks
Site speed - loading time of 5 seconds or less
Big, mobile-friendly buttons
Limited scrolling and pinching
Quick access to business contact information
“Click to call” access to phone the business
Links to the company’s social media profiles
Clean and efficient design

As you can imagine, most websites are not configured to make this an easy process.

Process.

How this works is pretty simple. There’s just a few small items we need to get out of the way before we can get started. First, you’ll need a domain name. I don’t have any issues with helping you get one; but this is one thing you must have yourself. This is going to be the “.com” of your business, and I you wouldn’t want me to be the owner of this – this is something you’ll want to keep safe and in your name. I have a few links for you below where you can purchase one. Once you have one, we can get started.

Once you have a domain, now we can get started – I’ll need you to point the DNS to the server in Washington, DC. This server is hosted with SITE5 and is local to the Virginia, Washington DC & NOVA area.

The ability to edit and move your own modules after the site has been created with the built in tools, your own login and instructional on how to edit them.
