Weebly to WordPress web designer Sydney.
When the owner of InfoGuides, a Sydney based business that produces high-quality brochures for venues, approached me they had a very generic Weebly website that they had designed in-house. With their limited website design expertise, the Weebly website had reached its full potential and the client wanted to project a more professional impression to their customers.
I recommended converting their website from Weebly to WordPress. WordPress is a cost-effective website platform that powers approximately one-third of all websites globally. It’s potential is virtually limitless easily accommodating further expansion any time in the future, should the client require it.
WordPress also comes with an easy-to-use content management system so the client could make updates inhouse with very little website design expertise and experience. As always, I make myself available to my clients to provide face-to-face or telephone training, should it be required.
In this instance, the client only required a simple, one-page website to get them started with a short turnaround time of two weeks – which I achieved with time to spare.
The result was a stylish website that conveyed an image of professionalism and showcased examples of their brochures.
Search engine optimisation (SEO) was not a requirement as the client liaises with new customers direct and doesn’t on search engines to attract new business. When creating the website I put in place functionality so SEO could be added anytime in the future easily and at a nominal cost.
The benefits of WordPress
WordPress powers approximately 30% of the world’s websites. It is extremely powerful yet very simple to use. WordPress is perfect for creating sensational looking, mobile-friendly websites on a budget.
WordPress can be used to create everything from simple websites and blogs to complex e-commerce shopping carts and enterprise websites. It’s easy-to-use content management system (CMS) makes it very easy for business owners to update and maintain their website in-house. Training is included with every new WordPress website I develop so my clients can confidently self manage their new site in-house, if they choose. WordPress website management services are also available.
Another benefit of WordPress is its flexibility. It can be expanded to incorporate shopping cart functionality (eg WooCommerce), secure payment and donation facilities, customer communication features, calculators, membership logins, property portfolios, hotel vacancy and booking systems, event calendars, appointment and reservation systems and so much more… The possibilities are endless.
I can custom-design a WordPress website for your business that is in keeping with your brand or implement an off-the-shelf template of your choosing. I have the expertise to make any necessary coding changes, template amendments and install plugins that will revolutionise how you do business.
If required, I also offer cost-effective WordPress hosting and domain name registration services.
