Blogs in WordPress
A blog (or web log) is a good mechanism for presenting topical and timely news articles (or posts) on subject matter pertinent to your business.
In addition there will likely be an interactive element such as allowing visitors to feedback with comments and therefore drive the discussion.
We like WordPress for its:
- Open source approach
- Ease of use by administrators
- SEO compliancy
- Large support community
- Ability to administer not just blogs but entire websites
We'll work closely with the client to ensure the design reflects the personality of the business at the same time appealing to the broader image of the industry sector.
It has been proven that layout is the most critical aspect of web design as this will ultimately determine the useability and therefore 'stickiness' of the site.
Typical services we offer:
- Branding and re-branding
- Brand implementation in line with supplied branding guidelines
- Layout and design implementation
- Creation of WordPress themes
- Microsite design
Anything from bespoke content management systems built from the bottom-up to off-the-shelf WordPress; either way it will be easy to use.
Our training regime will ensure the client is fully conversant with the chosen CMS; this can be achieved through face-to-face training or via a screencasting approach.
We specialise in Magento & nopCommerce although we'll turn our hand to most ecommerce systems.
We have experience of integrations with most of the popuplar payment gateways including WorldPay, PayPal, Protx and HSBC API.
We build SEO into our web solutions as they evolve to ensure that on launch day the site is primed for Google.
Using Google Webmaster Tools we will ensure that your site is being interpreted by Google in the correct way.
Getting the social media right will be be a key step on your path to success. Whether it be Twitter, a YouTube / Vimeo channel or Facebook business page we use automated cross-linking tools to keep your website and social media channels in synch.
We'll also include social media like buttons such as Like This, Tweet This and Google+ across all your content pages.
Need something more than a website? We can build other web applications such as APIs or automate back room processes freeing up your staff to concentrate on other things.
