Custom WordPress Websites Done Right.
Research discovered that it takes less than two tenths of a second for a new visitor to make a first impression about your website. In that fraction of time, they will either begin heading for the back button or they will engage further.
This is why your website needs to load quickly with a clean and professional design that clearly communicates your brand and vision. Your website must be visually engaging and the written content, concise and useful. Your website is your online reception lobby where the whole world is invited. Why not make it awesome?

A custom website design is the only way to truly reflect your own unique style and brand.

The Heavy Lifting

Still Here For You
We build relationships with our clients and want to be your go-to, time and time again for all of your marketing needs.
Web Design Related Services We Provide
We can recommend the most cost efficient essentials as well as set up your hosting for where your new website will live. We also put you into the hosting platform of your choice rather than locking you into a third party white label hosting plan that we claim as our own hosting company. This will save you money, assure that you’ll have tech support available 24/7, and you’ll be free from having to beg anyone for a response when you want to move your website.
Full WordPress Installation
We install and setup WordPress to run efficiently and with as few plugins, themes, or bloat as possible. Result = better performance and less issues later on.
We can help you find the perfect domain as well as advise on what’s going to be the most search engine friendly for ranking well.
There are many reasons to transfer a domain and we have you covered if you need it.
You have other domains that can be forwarded to your main domain. No problem.
We can move your website to whichever hosting you choose.
SSL Certificates Installed
SSL stands for ‘Secure Sockets Layer’ and basically encrypts any information shared with your website through forms or purchases or other means. An SSL is the security certificate that changes your website from an ‘http://’ to an ‘https://’. Google requires this for better search engine rankings. In some cases where an ‘auto ssl’ isn’t available, we can install this for you.
We can integrate a fully functional e-commerce store with your WordPress website that will work seamlessly with your design and brand. Features will be available in your WordPress dashboard and with only one plugin rather than multiple plugins that can corrupt and slow down your website.
Custom Contact Forms
We can create any kind of a contact form you desire for your specific needs along with the ability to upload files if needed. We incorporate a two-fold effort to reduce spam to your contact form along with an onsite database that logs every email you receive and even those you didn’t, assuring that you’ll never lose an email.
Your website will have every aspect of proper onsite SEO incorporated into it for the best possible search engine ranking. We will also index your website with Search Engines, set you up with Google Analytics and have all of your traffic data available to you right from your WordPress dashboard.
We can guide you in setting up a professional domain email.
Sometimes, for everything to connect properly between hosting, domains, emails, and other applications, a server side DNS edit may be needed. We can do that.
We Use a Top Rated Licensed WordPress Builder
Not only does this allow for limitless freedoms with how we can design your website but also provides the client with all of the tools needed to very easily learn and edit their own website.
WordPress Editing Tutorial
After every new website launch, we schedule a phone tutorial with our clients to go over how to easily edit their entire website. The whole tutorial usually only takes an hour rather than weeks of learning WordPress.
We offer every client the opportunity to make sure that they can rest easy, knowing that their website will be regularly updated and maintained. And if something breaks on our watch, we fix it on the spot.
Extended Service and Edits
Some still prefer a total hands-off approach with editing their website. We are still here for you long after launch day to provide any additional edits you may require.
So... Why Is A Custom Website Design Better?
A custom designed website involves creating a website that is unique and tailored to the specific needs and goals of the organization or individual that requires it. Here are some reasons why custom web design is always better than using pre-built templates and themes…
Unique and Tailored Design:
Allows you to create a website that is unique to your business or organization. It provides an opportunity to showcase your brand’s personality and create a website that is tailored to your specific goals, rather than trying to fit your content into a pre-existing template.
Less Bloat and Better Performance:
Templates or Themes are designed to be a one-size-fits-all and as a result, come with lots of bloat you’ll never need. A custom design gives you everything you need and nothing you don’t. This makes client editing much easier, less things are likely to break along the way, and website performance will be optimal which also leads to quicker load times and better SEO.
Better User Experience:
Enables you to create a website that is optimized for user experience. You can design the site with the user’s needs and preferences in mind, resulting in a site that is easier to navigate, more engaging, and more likely to convert visitors into customers.
Provides far greater flexibility than pre-built templates. You have more control over the functionality, design, and user experience of your site. You can add custom features and functionality that are specific to your business needs, rather than being limited only to the features of a pre-built template.
Improves your website’s search engine optimization (SEO). A well-designed website with high-quality content and a user-friendly layout is more likely to rank higher in search engine results, making it easier for potential customers to find your business online. Many who purchase a template or use a DIY website builder, often don’t realize that it will be completely up to them to implement functional onsite SEO. Which is something that often requires a professional because SEO is not a one-size-fits-all option. And what’s the point of a website that no one can find?
Long-Term Cost Savings:
While custom web design can be a larger investment upfront, it can save you money in the long run. A well-designed website that is optimized for user experience and search engine optimization can have a longer lifespan than a pre-built template, resulting in fewer costly updates and redesigns in the future. Additionally, a custom design can set you apart from competitors, resulting in increased brand recognition and customer loyalty.
Better Service and Results:
If anyone is selling you a pre-made template or theme but still marketing themselves as a ‘web designer’, you may be disappointed at some point. These are often the types who purchase a $40 template and resell it to you for up to $2k or more, just for populating your content.
Someone like this will be much less likely to have the experience or know-how to provide you with 90% of the essential web design related services we provide above. And once you’ve paid their balance, they’ll usually be the ones you can’t find again.
We know this because roughly 50% of our web design clients through the years have taken the hard road, simply thinking they would save some money and ended up coming to us to dig them out of a bad situation.
It can be a costly mistake to make so we would invite anyone to contact us for some guidance if you’re ever not sure. We will never push you into going with us instead. But if we can educate you about what to look for in making the best choice, that’s a win for you as well as for other professional designers.
