Why do I specialize in WordPress? Well in the previous century it was quite acceptable to have a website that you had to get a web developer to update. It was expected and to be honest some web developers didn’t particularly want it to change. After all they got paid every time a client wanted to update their website. Although you can still meet companies that try to tie you in to using (and paying) them for every little change you want done, it’s not necessary and I don’t think it’s fair.
As a Content Management System (CMS) WordPress has matured to the position that a good designer can make a great looking website which their client can update themselves. As an example, this website is a standalone WordPress installation.
When I deliver a website, it has an integrated web-builder interface, so you can change content yourself and even change the design of individual pages. Or you can ask me to do the updating, whatever is best for you.
And I’m not the only one who thinks that WordPress is the best way to go. There are currently around 75 Million Sites running on WordPress, nearly 30% of all the websites in the world and growing. Apart from clients being able to change their own content, one of the things that makes WordPress so good are the phenomenal number of plugins which add to the core functions. At present 29,000 different ones covering every aspect of what a modern website should do from enabling online payments, to whole shops, galleries and membership sites. Oh and if you want to you can simply use it as a blog and share your wisdom with the world.
To make sure I can deliver the website that is required I have excellent website and graphic designers with whom I work. So if you need a complex and original design or just a new logo, I have the people who can do that for you.

These are just three examples of the many websites I have designed and/or hosted and/or managed and show how designs can be as simple or as complex as required. I’m not interested in selling you a package, I want you to be happy with the your website and certain that it meets your stated requirements.

All some website owners want is to have a website that works and that they don’t have to concern themselves about. They may be happy to change the odd bit of text or add a new image, but that’s about it.
When it comes to updating WordPress plugins, adding new pages or tweaking the design, they quite understandably bail out. Which is where I come in.
Regardless of whether your site is hosted by me or even designed by me or one of my associates, I can make changes to your website on an as-needed basis. If you have a web designer you want to keep using, no problem, I can generally liaise with them if they only want to be involved in the design and not the on-going techie stuff.

Hosting Your Website
Most organisations need websites that work with a limited amount of fuss and they want Google to be able to find it, read it, and turn up in the search results. So I take a simple view of hosting. What I offer is to personally help you to the best of my ability and keep communicating with you so you know where you are at all times.
Now I don’t promise to be the cheapest because frankly I’m not. The level of personal care I aspire to takes time and therefore costs a little bit more than the cheapest hosting on offer. But only a little bit more as it happens. From £200 per year I will host your website and deal with any problems that arise. I’m not stupid, I have chosen a top UK hosting cloud hosting company to look after the minute to minute technical stuff, so I don’t have to stay up all day and night every day of the year. In the unlikely event that something goes wrong, a team of highly competent technicians sort it out, probably before you even notice.
If you want more than the basics we can talk about me managing your website as part of the package, either at a fixed rate or on a hourly basis. That’s pretty much it.
