Elegant yet robust websites
At Pale September, I have chosen to work mainly with WordPress.com websites .
This is because I like the ease, security and peace of mind that this affords for both my clients and myself.
I also want any websites I create to be accessible to all and using WordPress.com means I can be assured accessibility has been taken into consideration.
I can be assured of providing you with a robust website where internet security, back-up of webpages and the future proofing of your site for devices or web browsers not yet developed is all taken care of by the Happiness Engineers at WordPress.com.
WordPress.com use many servers based all over the world so you can be confident your site is always up and running.
Any website issues can be resolved with WordPress.com’s 24/7 chat support service.
As all software updates are done automatically by WordPress.com and I will be using templates that have already been written by professional designers, it is a very cost efficient way of having a WordPress website/website.
Your site will be mobile friendly ensuring it displays well on all devices and achieves higher Google ranking.
You will own and have complete control at all times of your domain name, email account and website.
WordPress.com pricing begins at £7 per month or there is a free option with adverts.
Squarespace pricing begins at £10 per month.
WordPress.com websites are very search friendly by default. I will employ the following techniques to improve ranking within the major search engines:
- Pertinent titles and headings for pages, paragraphs and images
- Proper use of text formatting
- Develop the website with accessibility guidelines in mind
- Give advice on key words
- Implementation of Google’s Webmaster tools where appropriate
WordPress.com already handles all of the technical aspects of SEO.
The WordPress.com and Squarespace have integrated shopping carts. For clients interested in e-commerce only, I recommend for Big Cartel.
I can also assist and advise with many other aspects of your online presence including mailing lists, message boards and setting up custom domain names and email accounts.
Web analytics are standard to enable you to monitor visitors to your site.
