We love WordPress. Here’s why…
With its focus on ease of use, elegance, performance and standards, WordPress is our go-to platform for most projects. Once thought of primarily as a blogging platform, WordPress has evolved into a content management system that is capable of sites ranging from corporate informational to full-featured ecommerce. WordPress offers a wide selection of themes and plugins, and is by far the most popular website management solution available today.
- A high-end web presence at an affordable price.
- Fully Capable CMS. WordPress started as a blogging platform but has evolved into a full-featured content management system.
- User friendly admin tool makes content updates a breeze.
- Thousands of free and commercial third-party plugins available to deliver the features you need.
- SEO features like Search Engine Friendly URLs and state-of-the-art themes built with the search engine in mind.
- Commenting engine to help build community.
Smart sites for smart phones.
Our mobile-friendly sites automatically scale to fit computers, tablets, and phones. Speed is critical, especially on mobile devices. In many cases, we create separate content areas for different types of devices. This lets us keep the ‘wow-factor’ of a full-screen slider on the desktop version, without requiring a mobile user to wait for a huge graphic to load.
