To have a successful web presence with WordPress entails so much more than installing a fancy theme and some plugins. With over 70% of web traffic happening via mobile devices it's important to ask: is your website mobile friendly? Can your site be found on the web; in Google and other search engines? Has it integrated good SEO practices? Does it run quickly, or take forever to load resulting in the loss of potential customers? Is it well branded, memorable, and look professional or does it look forgettably, "out of the box"? Is your website ADA accessible and compliant? Is it secure from hacking, defacement, and data mining attacks? WordPress sites are only as good as the developers behind them, and we're among the best.
About WordPress: WordPress offers businesses with a very user-friendly interface and comes packed full of features through its plugin system. WordPress powers over 34% of all websites on the web. We often use WordPress for business websites, and as a solution for eCommerce, blogging, forums, and social media websites. Chances are, if you have a specific website functionality that you want, it has already been built as a plugin. For the remaining functionality you need, we will build it from the ground up to perfectly meet your needs.
