We are often asked by clients who come to us with older websites and are considering a move to a WordPress system what the benefits would be, so we thought we’d list a few of the “biggies” here.
In-House WordPress Austin Website Content Management
The big obvious benefit to establishing a WordPress platform for your Austin small business website is that it enables the website to be easily administrated internally, with minimal training. A variety of user security levels can be applied for different levels of access such as authors, editors and administrators, and when editing a page the system is much like editing a Microsoft Word document. Easy peasy!
Some Austin clients are so busy they prefer to have us perform updates on their behalf, but still like the idea of being able to “drive their own car” if they wish. Many clients will perform simple content updates themselves, and call on us when they have more complicated changes they need done. Companies who are still paying a web developer to perform simple page copy updates should definitely take a hard look at making a change.
When we do a website redesign for an Austin small business client, one-on-one training on the Austin WordPress system is always included. We can also travel to businesses to train groups on WordPress administration.
Austin WordPress: Reliable, Adaptable and Expandable
WordPress has proven to be a reliable system and is infinitely flexible and expandable. For designers, it’s a dream to work with because we can lay out amazing templates and rely on a strong infrastructure to hold our design together over time, producing easily navigable world-class websites that are affordable for our clients. Our clients are happy to know their new WordPress site can accommodate branding changes, marketing adjustments and other visual tweaks without ripping anything apart. Time and again we have seen clients with WordPress websites save thousands when confronted with the prospect of a major look and feel overhaul that with another system would be a nightmare to implement.
Mobile Friendly Responsive Small Business WordPress Website Layouts
You know those small business websites that have separate mobile systems? That costs as much as it sounds. There is no need to go to those lengths, as responsive websites become more prevalent and pre-packaged responsible themes are available for Austin WordPress systems. Beware, however – not all WordPress out-of-the-box themes are truly responsive. We work with our Austin small business clients to make sure that their site is truly responsive and compatible with mobile devices of any size.
