I have to announce that Liverpool Business loves WordPress. After my 8th Consecutive website construction in the last few weeks I have not had the need to fall back on my old ‘Dreamweaver’ tools, or spend a few late nights writing code to design HTML pages, instead I have just worked within the WordPress platform.
People will actually call me and tell me that they want me to use WordPress to construct their website and it’s not that they have just picked up this ‘Buzzword’ as they are telling me why they want to use it!
Is WordPress good for your Business?
Well WordPress was not a website design platform that I used to promote but after a number of websites I designed for clients in Liverpool I did find a significant increase in their internet traffic. I would then push the boat out a little further and investigate the reasons for this and work on the configuration for Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) within my designs.
WordPress is such a solid platform for design and once more its an ‘Open Source’ Project meaning that the concept is free to the community, there are thousands of developers working on the core code and sharing the files for free. Its hard to believe that WordPress started back in 2003 and has grown from strength to strength over the last 11 years.
WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.
Basically, my Job as the website Developer is to design the website to the clients need in respect of ‘Branding’ and ‘Identity’, I would then give it the functionality such as interactive video, Contact Forms or availability of PDF download product information. In some cases to configure a fully working shopping cart that links payment to their Merchant account in order to receive instant payments from the website for the purchase of their goods.
It doesn’t stop there; I will then hand over the website to the client, which includes a fully functional Control Panel that they have access to. This gives them the power to add more content, Pages, delete information and to add as many articles as they wish! The platform is a powerful ‘blogging’ system and the client does not need to possess any skills in HTML or similar codes.
So the Return on Investment (ROI) to them is phenomenal! Within their first year the value of enquiries they receive from the website could be as much as tenfold of the price I charged for the initial design and implementation.
Some designers are not so keen on WordPress as it makes their ‘after support’ redundant of an income stream. I know that I have a good client base that use WordPress to promote their business on the Internet and because they believe in it they will want to further develop their website at a later stage which does call for advanced development.
Liverpool Business Loves WordPress – are you convinced yet?
So right now WordPress is the design platform suited to most business needs and for 2014 I can see myself delivering this website platform to many more customers in Liverpool.
