As a freelance WordPress web designer, I specialise in WordPress design and development, custom WordPress theme development and general maintenance and services.
An award winning CMS (content management system), WordPress is responsible for a huge proportion of the internet as we know it today. It provides the core framework behind a modern website, providing a unified base for me as a web designer and a future proofed, extensible website for you as the consumer.
- 23% of all websites are powered by WordPress
- Over 60 million websites are based in the CMS
- WordPress is constantly updated by a global team of developers, with regularly improved functionality and security
- WordPress is a modular framework, which allows extra features to be added to your website through the use of plugins. There are thousands of plugins available, many free of charge, from the plugin directory site.
WordPress Blogs: Publicise Your Business
Originally, WordPress was developed as the de-facto blog engine for the scores of self publishers with something to say. Since then, and over numerous upgrade cycles, it’s become by far the easiest way to handle dynamic websites.
As the blogging side is built into the core, this allows all websites developed by myself to include this wonderful way of publicising your business, produce fresh new content and establish yourself as a leader in your field.
It can also be leveraged to provide a great way of updating your customers with news about you company and announce special offers.
The Benefits Of Hiring A Freelance WordPress Web Designer
For businesses of all sizes, WordPress’s key advantage is that you, as the client, can make adaptations to website content (indeed, create entirely new content and pages) through an extremely easy to use interface.
This saves your business time and money through not having to run back to the original web developer. You have access to all your website content at all times, simply by logging into the administration page via your browser.
If your website requires a makeover later on in it’s life, that’s not a problem; the content of the website is separate from the look and layout. WordPress theme development allows your designer to rearrange the layout and graphical ‘gloss’ of your website without having to start from scratch, massively speeding up on a new design without the costs of a brand new WordPress website.
