Responsive WordPress Websites

Your website is the central hub to your online marketing plan. Without a quality web presence, you risk losing clients before you have a chance to interact with them.

Your professional website should:

Reflect your company in all aspects of the business

Make it easy for your prospects to find and connect with you on their terms

Help you attract more visitors and turn them into customers

For clients who work with me on their marketing efforts, I provide a custom designed, responsive WordPress website.

We have standardized on the premium theme framework GeneratePress by Tom Usborne. GeneratePress is lightweight, highly customizable, responsive and powerful, reducing the need for custom development.

I have standardized on the WordPress block editor. We augment the block editor with GenerateBlocks, also by Tom Usborne, for page layout and to create your design. GenerateBlocks provides additional page builder type features to the WordPress block editor.

This ensures that your online marketing efforts get off on the right foot. Using the WordPress block editor makes updating your website simple. This will help you keep your content fresh and up-to-date.

Responsive Design - GeneratePress

Mobile Friendly – No Longer an Option

Why WordPress?

WordPress makes it easy for you to update and maintain a fresh quality web presence. I highly recommend that small business owners use the self-hosted WordPress platform for their site because:

It provides a comprehensive content management system in addition to blogging platform, enabling you to create a powerful site

It is easy to use, helping you keep the content fresh and relevant for readers

The theme and plugin developers stay current on the latest trends and provide key features such as responsive design, eCommerce support, membership sites and more without hiring a developer

There are many WordPress web developers available to help you make changes when you need a bit of technical help

It is provided as a free add-on as part of your hosting environment!

Why Responsive?

Mobile has caused a major shift in buyer behavior. People who search from their mobile devices are goal-oriented and wanting to make a decision. Whether the buyer is searching for a new set of headphones or a new product for their business, they are utilizing their mobile devices to search, learn about and buy these products and services. And websites need to be responsive to cater to these searchers.

Your WordPress website needs to be more than just responsive to mobile devices. The website needs to be a mobile first design. Lack of creating a website that offers a great user experience on a mobile device could impact your business being visible to those searching on their smartphone. According to Google, mobile pages that provide a poor search experience could be demoted in rankings or displayed with a warning in mobile search results.

Marketing First, Technology Second

The benefit of working with me is that we focus on marketing during the website development process. This ensures that your website connects with your target audience and doesn’t just look pretty. Our websites are easy to maintain and update, helping you take control of all aspects of your online presence so that your brand is projected accurately to the world.

Plus our WordPress websites include keyword phrase analysis and Search Engine Optimization (SEO) as an integral part of the project for all devices. SEO helps your website become visible by someone searching for what you have to offer. You can be sure that your website will have elements required for it to be found by your target audience.

But technology is still important

Besides only working with WordPress and the premium theme framework listed above, we only recommend hosting companies that provide the Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates.

Let’s Encrypt is a certificate authority that provides free X.509 certificates for Transport Layer Security (TLS) encryption. They have implemented an automated process designed to eliminate the complexities of manual creation, validation, signing, installation and renewal of certificates for secure websites.

Securing your website with encryption is not only good for your visitors, it is also good for your search engine rankings. Without an SSL certificate, it makes your business look out of touch, resulting in the loss of potential customers.

Client Testimonials

I had been looking for over a year to find the right WordPress expert; I must have talked to twenty consultants. I received all kinds of advice and all kinds of cost estimates – which were all over the map. Not one of those companies that I had talked to did I feel comfortable with. But when I found Debra… “EM Wedding”
