Web Site Design

 If you have ideas about how you want your Web site to look, I can take your ideas and turn them into a complete template / theme for your Joomla! or WordPress Web site. This would be considered a "custom" design.

Or, you can purchase or find a free template / theme somewhere on the Net that you feel is going to really make your business stand out.

A custom design can take some time to create. A free or purchased template can actually hinder the development process due to the way the template was created and cost you many hours of unnecessary work. If you choose to use a template you found on the Net (free or purchased), you should know that many of the more recently developed templates sold are overly complicated in coding. That's done by design so the developer forces you to contact them and pay to have them provide answers to what should already be inherent in the template. Surprisingly, they do not provide answers for free - even if you purchase a template. So before you settle on a template, contact me in order that I may discuss creating a custom template for your project.

Web Site Development

If you have a quality template, all of your articles and images prepared, then your project could be completed in a matter of 2 or 3 days. Having developed hundreds of Web sites for both Joomla! and WordPress over the years, I can honestly tell you that your development time will be less cost and time with Joomla!.

Development includes:

  • installing your template
  • creating your "pages" (articles - you must provide the content)
  • placement of your images
  • basic instructions to administrate your site

Web Site SEO

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is crucial in getting your Web site found in the search engines. Without SEO your site may not be listed, or, is more than 20 pages back in the search results. It's also possible that "if" your site is listed, it's found under search terms that have nothing to do with your site. That's bad because it will get a high "bounce rate" for every person who comes to your site, which just pushes your site back further in the search results.

SEO will define your site for the search engines so they know how to list your site. Done properly, SEO will place your site in a page 1 or page 2 position of search results.

Web Site Troubleshooting

If you're Web site is not functioning properly, or something is missing, or it's old and much of the software is outdated, you need help to get things back in order.

Sometimes it's very simple to fix what's not functioning properly. Other times it may mean you need a new Web site developed. Either way, you are in the right place for what you need.

I'll be happy to estimate the time necessary before you spend a dime. Once a determination has been made you will be invoiced prior to any work commencing.
