WordPress Web Design
Rule Ο = Your business needs a website, you know this.
If you don’t have one, get one. If you have an old one, you need a new one. You have 0-8 seconds to make a first impression. Make it count.
Rule 1 = Your website has to serve your business goals first.
Your website should engage your visitors, convert leads to sales, and fit your branding. We focus on form and function first, so that your website does just this.
96% of visitors research online before buying. Control every aspect of the sales process that you can, because there are quite a few that you can’t.
Rule 2 = Your website isn’t your only marketing channel, so it has to fit your budget
The problem is that agencies are quoting you a “standard rate” to develop a website that could be in the tens of thousands, and you see ads everywhere for low cost or nearly free websites.
It’s confusing, we know. An effective website will cost you something, but we don’t have a fixed standard rate because each client is unique.
Rule 3 = You need to use data to inform design
“Ideas are worthless without the execution; execution is pointless without the ideas.”
– Gary Vaynerchuk
The same could be said for opinions without the data to back them up. Information is pointless if you do nothing with it. Collect data on your website traffic, make adjustments accordingly, get more business. Boom.
At FEAD, as a web design company, we like to let data inform our process, and WordPress has repeatedly proven to be the most robust, secure, malleable, and effective platform for our client’s ongoing sales and marketing goals. We’ve also built websites using other platforms: Drupal, Joomla, Concrete5, WYSIWYG proprietary platforms (Squarespace, WIX, etc.), and even straight up old-fashioned HTML…we got skills.
WordPress is used by 26% of all websites on the internet, period. It’s used by businesses of all sizes from small startups and solopreneur outfits to some of the biggest brands in the world including CNN, CBS, New York Times, Dole, Glad, Mercedes-Benz and Vogue. When we say robust and malleable, we mean it. If someone says “WordPress can’t do that”, they actually mean “I can’t figure out a configuration to make that work on WordPress”.
WordPress also has one of the most supportive and passionate tech communities in the world. At FEAD, we are passionate about building communities, so we love supporting brands that support this purpose.
We don’t think short term, because you don’t think short term. That’s why we build on WordPress. We know the platform is secure, malleable, and will be around for as long as the internet is.
We don’t have a standard rate for building sites, because we don’t tell “standard rate” stories. Every client has different goals. One business may need a simple landing page as a conversion point in their sales funnel, while another might need a whole redesign of their existing brand and web presence. We make sure each of your needs are addressed, and we tailor a design plan to fit.
Whenever clients come to us for a WordPress website, we have a few goals that we’re looking to accomplish:
- Determine your website’s goals
- Decide on your website’s look and feel
- Design and launch a secure, responsive, and malleable website
- Revise your website based on user data and feedback
