WordPress Website Design
Imagine Media & Marketing creates only responsive WordPress websites. I discovered WordPress in 2009 when I first started my own business after working for other companies for 2 years. Before WordPress I was creating websites using a limited program. Limited meaning limited with functionality and the ability to add SEO. With a WordPress website, functionality is provided by plugins. In 2009 I remember being amazed at how many plugins there were at that time. There were over 12,000 plugins. Now there are over 40,000 and counting.
Open Source Platform
WordPress is an open source website development platform with a very easy to use content management system. Now over half the websites online are WordPress websites. It can get confusing to WordPress newcomers because WordPress started out as a blogging platform (wordpress.com) and became so popular that wordpress.org was created. WordPress.org is where developers go. WordPress.com is where people can go to create blogs that have a url something like this. yourblogwebsite.com/wordpress With wordpress.org you can create huge multi-functional websites using a multitude of plugins, widgets and themes.
It took me about two years to get over the WordPress learning curve and now I fly around the WordPress dashboard like a hummingbird. WordPress ROCKS. There are a lot of news websites and a lot of celebrity websites that are created with WordPress. There are so many plugins to choose from now that the question is not “is there a shopping cart plugin I can use?” The question is “Which one of the 26 shopping cart plugins will work the best for my website?”
Easy to Use Content Management System
One thing the clients really like is how easy it is to run the website after we launch it and hand it over to our clients. The content management system is as easy as using a word document.
The Search Engines love WordPress
On top of being able to create a really custom work-of-art website, WordPress is already search-engine-friendly. The search engines love the way WordPress is structured. On top of this, there are plenty of SEO plugins to choose from.
WordPress is well Supported
WordPress has been around long enough to develop some really nice themes, plugins and widgets. Each one of the themes and plugins are typically well supported and there is a large WordPress community that will help us figure out solutions to just about every website problem.
WordPress Website Coding
It helps if you know how to code too because no matter how much support you get, you can get work much faster if you know code. We know Code.
Responsive Website Design
What is a responsive website design? It is about coding a website in such a way that an “optimal viewing experience” is created for your website visitors no matter what size screen they are using. The demand for responsive website design is on the rise because more and more people are looking for websites on their mobile devices.
Is your Website Mobile Friendly?
If your website is not a responsive website it may not look proportional on an ipad or on mobile devices. Most companies have responsive websites now for this reason. That is why we decided to do only responsive WordPress website design. That means that not only will your website look great on mobile devices but it will fit any screen size and shape including old monitors.
Deeply Optimized Websites
The advantage of hiring us to create or re-design your WordPress website is that even before we begin redesigning your website, I am thinking about how I am going to optimize it. That means optimizing your website from the foundation. That gives you the deepest level of on-site optimization possible. There are many website designers who still don’t know anything about optimizing websites. Or they know but they do not have the experience.
Ask for Proof
Make sure your website developer can prove to you that they have had many optimization successes in the past. I work with several other website companies who don’t even try to optimize a website. They call me because they want someone who knows what they are doing. It takes a lot of experience and research and updated software to be good at optimization.
Obviously if you want a responsive, well optimized, well designed website, you’ll probably want to have a sit down with us.
