WORDPRESS DEVELOPMENT BRISBANE
We really are Brisbane’s WordPress Experts.
Over the years we’ve developed WordPress sites of every size and functionality – everything from basic brochure websites to blogs, complex directories and eCommerce stores. There’s not much we can’t do in WordPress!
We love WordPress!
There’s a reason WordPress is the most utilised Content Management System in the world right now.
We recently relaunched Women’s Agenda with a shiny new publishing platform built into a custom WordPress.
What kinds of websites can we develop with WordPress?
When WordPress launched in 2003 it was primarily a blogging platform. These days, thanks to changes to the core code, as well as the huge WP community ecosystem of plugins and knowledge, we really can create any type of website with WordPress.
For example, not only does WordPress power a huge number of business sites and blogs, it’s also the most popular way to create an eCommerce store!
With WordPress, you can make:
- Business Websites
- eCommerce Online Stores
- Blogs & News Websites
- Membership Sites
6 reasons why we love WordPress
It’s really easy for you to update content yourself
Our world famous ‘custom backend’ (yew!) means just about everything on our sites is customisable, all right from the WordPress dashboard. You don’t need to know how to develop, we take care of all of that for you, providing you with a sleek, intuitive admin experience.
There are thousands of ways to extend the functionality of your WordPress website. Live chat? Google Maps? Social sharing? Image gallery? A coming soon page? An online store with digital downloads? All this and more is possible with a custom developed WordPress.
Integrations are easy
Being the most widely used website platform means that many third-party applications have out-of-the-box WordPress integrations ready to go. For example you can make your contact forms feed straight to your CRM, create a donation form that collects payment via Paypal and send sales straight to Xero from your eCommerce store. Amazing!
Google loves it
WordPress is known for having SEO super powers – letting search engines know about your content, getting your site indexed and potentially moving you up in search results. Our custom-built WordPress sites are coded just the way Google likes it – fast and lean.
Widely supported & open source
WordPress is an open-source platform. Open-source projects are typically free, with large communities as they are worked on and maintained by many developers. There are plenty of places to get information and support with your WordPress site so you’ll never be left in the cold.
Safe & Secure
The large worldwide user base and active community around WordPress means there are many people who are super invested in making sure it remains secure. And our custom builds mean that we limit our use of plugins and use only the best and most secure on our sites.
But isn’t WordPress just a template like Squarespace or Wix?
Nope! Sure there are free and premium templates you can download and use with WordPress, but we prefer to develop our websites from scratch. WordPress is not a theme itself, it’s not even really a website builder. We use WordPress as the backbone, the base plate, the foundation for building our websites. Our custom code layers on top of the WordPress back-end, meaning we can use WordPress to do just about anything!
We’ve built directory websites, online stores, travel websites… all using WordPress.
One other thing to be aware of is site ownership. Platforms such as Squarespace, Wix and Shopify are SAAS (software as a service) platforms so you can never move the site off their service. This means you never really “own” your site. With a custom WordPress site you are free to move the site to any hosting provider to like. So you have total ownership of your asset.
