We have DISCONTINUED our WordPress Website Creation Service!
Why did we stop making WordPress websites?
Yes, we realize WordPress technically is the number 1 rated website building tool. And we realize it's estimated that there currently are over 64 Million websites Worldwide that use WordPress as it's base. That number equates to almost 40% of all websites on the Internet.
You may be saying to yourself, or at least thinking, why would a company walk away from WordPress when so many people and companies use it, or want to use it...
Our reasons are many, below are just a few examples:
- Google wants sites to be Mobile-First
- WordPress IS NOT Mobile-First - it's Responsive
- WordPress sites have security issues and are vulnerable to hacking
- It can take hours, even days to fully optimize a WordPress Site.
- Plugins and Themes become outdated, require updating and reconfiguration
- SEO rankings are slow, or very minimal at best
- Slow Page Speed load times
- Site can go off the air for hours or days at a time (Loss of Business)
- It's not easy to install and properly set up a WordPress site
- Most WordPress sites have the same structure
- WordPress sites need constant maintenance and upkeep
- I could keep going, but, I think you get the picture
That's just some of the reasons we have decided to not use WordPress for our website creation. We only use our Mobile-First website building platform. As the saying goes, If You Aren't Mobile-First - Your Mobile-Last.
With most of your customers going Mobile - shouldn't you?
How Much Is Your Time Worth?
As A Business Owner - You Know That 'Time Is Money'!
One of the most important factors to consider when building a WordPress website, or having someone build it for you, is the 'time involved' from start to finished product.
I'm guessing that you already have a domain name, a hosting account, and probably even a website that you want to upgrade, change, or optimize.
So, let's get into the 'Time" aspect of creating a WordPress site.
Many people think that if they build a website with WordPress, the site is basically free. In reality, It Isn't!
If you've never created a WordPress site before, you have to decide on which theme you want to use (Paid or Free). You then install WordPress on your server (which costs you monthly/yearly for hosting), install the theme, add all the correct text and images, decide which plugins to use, (free or paid), add optin forms, make sure you have all your legal documents linked througout your site, and... well, you get the picture.
How many hours, or days, did this, or would this take you to complete?
Now, take your average hourly developer salary ($75-$150/Hour), multiply it by the hours you have spent already, and you will see 'free' really isn't.
You still haven't done the SEO for each page, you probably haven't added "alt text" to every image, and I'm willing to bet you haven't optimized your site for speed (an additional 8-12 hours and a minimum of 3 extra plugins).
So, as you can see, Time Is Money... and if you get it wrong, you'll have to pay someone to fix any issues, on top of re-doing your site, and that takes even more time, and costs way more to have them "fix" a site.
Oh, one more thing... if you are doing eCommerce, and selling products on your website, do you have the correct system set up? Are all your products set up to be purchased.
I think you get the idea... Unless you are really good at setting up a business website, you might find it much more cost effective to hire a Small Business Specialist, that does this every day.
Or, just get one of our business plans and have a fully optimized site in a matter of a few hours, instead of days or weeks.
It's your time, and it's your money...
Mobile First, which is an "Adaptive" website is built specifically for Mobile Devices.
WordPress is a "Responsive" system that first builds your website for Desktop. Then, in response to the device identified in your browser, it provides a mobile version that 'fits' mobile phones and tablets.
Do you want a website that's Mobile-First or Mobile-Last?
