About WordPress Sites
WordPress sites are the latest superheroes in the web site universe, and most often that’s what I will suggest as a platform to create a new web site. In existence for over a decade, it is a robust web site architecture that began life as a do-it-yourself blog for the masses. It has matured rapidly, allowing for installation of custom templates & plugins to add versatility. One of the many important features is that, once configured, it allows multiple users to collaborate— each creating their own articles and the ability to make changes. That means you, or I, or a whole office can write, post, and update your own web site. That’s very cool. The folks at NY Times and People magazine adamantly agree on its usefulness, as their sites— and thousands more in the business and government sector, worldwide— are now deployed on the WordPress platform.
Another advantage to WordPress, being nimble and aggressively updated, is that the platform can be optimized to be viewed correctly on many platforms— your standard computer web browser, on an iPad, and on umpteen mobile devices. And as the preference to web browse only on a mobile device aggressively zooms past the 50-60% mark, that’s reason enough to upgrade an aging site.
Some of my most recent clients have opted for converting their sites to WordPress in order to take advantage of the collaboration features and to be able to do their own updates. No longer is the web site hostage to one person making updates. If you can create a Word document you can do WordPress.
Webworks and WordPress support the DIY mentality. But, to take advantage of the most advanced features, we have found that what works best is to let us do the install and customization for you to get the look you want. Once it’s all set up just the way you like it, in most cases you’re good to go. Our custom-tailored process can optionally include basic training for you of particular features to get the most out of all that your custom WordPress has to offer.
For those not inclined to hands-on management of their web site, a modern WordPress site with all its bells-n-whistles created, maintained, and kept up to date by Webworks is a great way to proceed. In either case, we am ready to consult and strategize the best possible solution for you. CONTACT >>
