One of our specialties here at Techeffex is WordPress website design. We find it’s an affordable option that allows some great design options with reasonable performance. WordPress is the most popular Content Management System for websites today. There are thousands of free and commercial themes and plugins available allowing great websites to be built quickly and economically.
WordPress Site Maintenance
The WordPress core, themes and plugins get updated often. These updates can be functional improvements, security updates or for other reasons. Many updates are automatic but some are not and can require database backups. As a result, falling behind on WordPress website design updates can be risky for security reasons and compatibility issues. Techeffex offers a WordPress Maintenance Plan to avoid any issues:
WordPress Maintenance Plan
- weekly checks for updates
- implement any updates
- notify site owner of any issues requiring additional attention
- $50/month (billed semi-annually)
WordPress Website Design Development
WordPress can work right out of the box, but the basic themes can be a bit boring. Most website owners will want some customization and that is where we come in. We have the expertise to modify an existing theme or create a brand new one from scratch. In addition, we also develop all kinds of custom plugins allowing you to leverage your website for your business marketing.
In WordPress, a theme is a collection of page templates, CSS styles and Content Management features that when enabled, give the website a certain look. There are a lot of themes available and they vary dramatically in terms of what they do and what the site owner can control. As such, website owners should be careful when purchasing a commercial theme – not all themes are created equal. We recommend the Avada theme to our clients as it provides plenty of design features, good performance and reliable support.
WordPress plugins add functionality to the website or Content Management System. Some are small, simple features that are freely available while others may be large, complex applications that cost money to use. Plugins are easy to use and install and can be turned on and off as needed. Most WordPress website designs will use several plugins but users need to balance the number of plugins with performance. An experienced web developer (like us!) can provide help in this area.
WordPress was originally designed as a blogging platform. In today’s competitive internet environment, blogging is an essential component of any online business web presence. A blog allows the website owner to provide fresh content on a regular basis while engaging with readers – a valuable combination for SEO. WordPress is also the most widely used blogging platform so you’re ready to go right out of the box.
