Beyond Web Design is a Boston Web Development company that has been building the web for 20 years. So why do we recommend WordPress?
WordPress is a powerful tool. It will allow for a site to be built that can be customized to your needs, and can be customized to create the look and feel you’re going for.
Being able to go in and make an edit yourself and not have to wait for any web designer to fit you into their schedule can be a very empowering feeling. Lets be honest though… you do need to be able to manipulate images, some customized coding often times has to be added to make things work and display correctly, and while making changes yourself can be difficult for some, for most it is quite doable. In other words, don’t let us sell you on an idea, make us explain everything there is to it so you can make an informed decision. BWD will walk you through these important issues. An informed customer is a happy customer.
Most customer can perform 80-90% of their own updates. We offer a one on one class so you can learn how to make your own updates, and as a result, see if updating your own site is for you. BWD is here to help you with the rest.
Cost vs Ease of Use
To have someone build your company or an individual WordPress site, the cost in most cases is going to be cheaper than a regular HTML5 site. That is mainly due to Google’s new mobile standard, which makes an HTML5 site much harder to program.
Good design is making something intelligible and memorable. Great design is making something memorable and meaningful.
Why you should use WordPress
The biggest reason? You get to make the majority of updates yourself. No matter where you are, what computer or tablet you want to use. All that is needed is an internet connection. Spending $100 for a program that will take care of your images problem will save you a ton of money in web designer fees alone! Real-time updates vs when you fit into a web designers schedule is invaluable. Yes, I am shooting myself in the foot here, but your schedule is your schedule, and with WordPress, you get things done when you need them!
Can anyone make all of the web changes themselves?
NO! Each person will have a different learning curve when it comes to using WordPress or any other content management system. Not everyone will be able to make their own updates. But for most… this really is the solution for you.
What would be a good gauge to go by before you commit to WordPress? Look at how easily it is for you to use other editors. How about Microsoft Word? If all you do is type and do no formatting, then this might be a stretch. If you’re ok with basic commands with Word, then your chances go up greatly that you can use WordPress.
I still have questions on which direction I should go, what next?
