WordPress Websites and Self Hosted Blogs

The ultimate choice for CMS websites and blogging

Wordpress Blogs and Websites

WordPress is the largest self-hosted blogging tool in the world, used on millions of sites and seen by tens of millions of people every day.

The possibilities with WordPress are endless, which makes it one of the most popular platforms for CMS Websites. It is ideal for regularly updating and adding content, for example updating the price list, adding special offers, updating stock, adding photographs to your portfolio, uploading a blog or newsletter, changing contact details – anything. You will have log in credentials to an easy to use web-based word processor style interface, which will enable you to manage the appropriate content from your internet browser such as Firefox, Safari or Chrome.

Whether you run a blog on WordPress.com, or have/want a website built with WordPress.org, there is nothing stopping your site looking and being a professional, attractive, easy to use web space.

Web Hosting OptionsNot all web hosting is the same

There are a number of options to choose from when purchasing web hosting, and different hosting companies provide different types and qualities of service.

Web hosting for WordPress may be fine for a self hosted blog, but may not necessarily be suitable for a business website built on WordPress.

You may also require an email service, which is often included with web hosting packages.

With web hosting, the more expensive service is not necessarily the better service – it depends on your specific needs.

I work with a variety of reliable, quality web hosting companies who offer excellent value for money and customer service. I can advise you on what options you need to look for, and the pitfalls to avoid.

Affordable Web Design

Websites are becoming essential for anyone offering any type of product or service.

Businesses, projects, hobbies and pass-times can be greatly enhanced by having your own website. With more people turning to the Word Wide Web as their first port of call for researching their needs you really can’t afford to be left out of the action.

Websites in a Nutshell

There are 2 types of web design available:

 

All my websites are optimised for mobile devices (responsive)

Recent research into internet browsing habits suggests:

0%
or more people browsing the internet will do so on their mobile device while watching TV
0%
or more of these people only use their mobile device to browse the web, and not a computer
0%
of these people are likely to abandon your website if it is not optimised for mobile users

Monthly Retainers

Immediate availability for assistance is not guaranteed. The option of paying an agreed monthly retainer will assure availability for the assistance and services laid out in your proposal/contract.

Retainer fees are invoiced at the beginning of the month and are payable monthly. They are ideal for ongoing assistance, including:

  • Handling routine (ie, not out of the ordinary) maintenance work that may not otherwise get done
  • Being on call for emergency issues*
  • Offering extremely fast turnaround for routine tasks
  • Consulting on strategy or planning for the company
  • Handling recurring work (like the addition/update of pages, special offers or articles per month)
  • Performing a website cookie audit and create an associated privacy policy
  • Small website improvements that can’t easily be justified in isolation – e.g. new website buttons, changing of layouts or addition of filters, the inputting of SEO friendly, well formatted and appealing website content
  • Homepage redesign and site-wide image replacement
  • Receiving bespoke website documentation
  • Access to export data in CSV format
  • Creating and placement of website favicons.

*Availability to assess emergency situations and, if possible fix, if only temporarily. Tackling larger emergency issues may be subject to additional charge.

Terms will be agreed by you and detailed in your design proposal.

Monthly retainers can be a cost-effective solution:

  • Typically, up to 70% cheaper for minor jobs
  • Makes budgeting for costs easier and approvable upfront
  • Reduced administration – no on going financial sign-offs required

Priority response – an estimated 1 week turnaround on agreed paid-for minor jobs.

Monthly retainers can be agreed for a set period of time, or as an ongoing arrangement. A monthly retainer can work out as a cost-effective solution for large or on-going projects.
