The primary content management system we develop websites upon is WordPress. Much has been said about WordPress and most of the buzz is about how simple it is to use.
Although we would agree that in comparison to building a website from scratch using PHP, MySQL, CSS and HTML, the fact remains WordPress has a learning curve. If you've ever attempted to modify a theme or perform other tasks within WordPress, you'll know we speak the truth when we say it might be simple but that doesn't mean easy.
It's estimated that WordPress is the backbone of about 20-25% of websites. I guess that number would be hard to argue since many major corporations, organizations and government agencies utilize it. It's well supported, has a lot of great features and can be moved between web hosting companies with relative ease. Portability is important. Most browser based website design tools cannot be moved from the proprietary host and likely would require a complete rebuild if the decision was made to move the website.
If your goal is to get a website online effectively in order to reach your target market, we can do it for you. You have a business to run, ours is designing and hosting small business websites. Let us take care of the challenges and potential struggles for you and allow us to deliver a great looking website promptly and at a price you'll find reasonable.
Do you already have a website but would like to have it in WordPress? We provide custom WordPress themes and websites along with transition from static websites to WordPress.

Complete Basic WordPress Website
Our $499.00 website includes the following features (additional features and services are available at an additional cost):
Simplicity and Flexibility
We will install your WordPress website and ensure it's up and running quickly. Once it's live we can turn the reigns over to you for content updates or if you prefer we can manage the website for you.
Ease of Publishing
If you've ever created a document, you're prepared to create content with WordPress. The interface is very similar to many popular word editing programs.
WordPress makes it easy for you to manage your content, create drafts, schedule publication, and look at your revisions. Content can be made public or private and it's possible to secure content with a password if desired.
Not everyone requires the same access to your website. Administrators manage the site, editors work with content, authors and contributors write content, and subscribers have a profile that they can manage.
Image and Content Management
Drag and drop media into the WordPress interface to add it to your website. Through this tool you can add images, documents, PDF files and other media quickly and easily.
Web Standards Compliant
WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards set by the W3C. This means that your website will work in today's browser tools whether you use Google Chrome, Firefox, Internet Explorer or another tool.
Search Engine Optimized
When the head of Google's web spam team says that WordPress is a great choice, taking care of 80-90% of the mechanics of search engine optimization for you.
Of course you still must ensure your content is compelling and informative, however implementing WordPress can be a strong framework upon which to build your website.
The process to upgrade WordPress is relatively straightforward and the cost for software is of course, free. We will upgrade your WordPress installation as part of one of our optional Maintenance Programs.
When updating the WordPress core it's important to understand that not all of the plugins you've installed will necessarily work as expected with the software update. Part of our Maintenance Program is to ensure the plugins you desire or have installed are well supported and maintained by their developer. Many times we will recommend the purchase of a premium (paid) plugin simply because it's better supported and more stable.
Our Maintenance Program includes ensuring all of your website plugins are compatible with the latest version of WordPress. In addition we will ensure your website will be stable once the upgrade has taken place.
Extendable with Plugins
WordPress comes packed full of features for every user, for every other feature there's a plugin directory with thousands of plugins.
