Custom WordPress Website Design, Development & Support

I am a WordPress web designer and developer in Kansas City.

WordPress Web Design and Development

Awesome custom designed WordPress websites for your business.  WordPress is a leading content management system with powerful functionality and flexible design capabilities.  

For over 15 years, I’ve created online success for organizations and individuals.  I provide a comprehensive approach to web design and development.  I analyze your brand and business, your values and your target audience, in order to deliver a custom web solution that not only visually engages, but ensures you achieve your business goals and improve your return on investment.

To keep things simple, and everyone collaborating effectively, I work along these steps:

Initial Planning

We discuss the features and functionality that your website needs.

We explore website hosting options. Once determined, I set up a WordPress development environment for the website so it can be built without interfering with any existing websites.

UX & UI Design

Like choice? Once we’ve determined the best structure for the website, I deliver multiple homepage design concepts for you to see.

This brainstorming and comparison part is often where the best ideas come from! Once a clear option has been chosen, I move forward with any adjustments you have noted.

Content

Now that we have a design, I start the copywriting process and together we will put your ideas down through the “voice” of your new brand. 

Any photos or videos to use on the website will be gathered at this stage.  If visual assets are needed, I also provide graphic design services.

WordPress Website Development

Using everything we have gathered, I start developing your website. Once it is done, I will present it to you and go through the details and finishing touches following the objectives we originally set.

Any amends are made at this stage.

Launch

The launch process has to be carefully considered. I ensure email addresses will not go down, the site doesn’t have any downtime, any old links are re-directed to the new pages, as well as several other things. 

I work with you to determine the best launch date, and you can rest easy knowing that once I start the launch process, I closely monitor the website to ensure everything goes according to plan. 

Once launched, its recommended that you continue to produce fresh content for your website to improve its SEO.

Hosting & Support

Every website needs a host.  You may already have a web host that you want to continue to use, but if not, I provide web hosting services utilizing a fast, reliable and secure host that is optimized for WordPress websites. 

Here is what to expect with my year round hosting and maintenance services:

I check your website monthly for any WordPress or plugin updates that need to happen to keep the website up to date.  Sometimes, there are big updates that require website testing to make sure things upgrade smoothly.  This is all covered.

Sometimes you have changes or updates that you want to make to your website after launch.  I make these changes and updates for you.   With my subscription investment option, you get 24 hours a year included at no additional cost.

Occasionally, there is the need for server maintenance, updates, and website troubleshooting if there is ever downtime or issues.  This is where I come in to make sure that everything is running smoothly.

WordPress websites are good at their base level, but there are many great WordPress plugins available that make the website perform even better.  They can increase speed, search engine performance, improve security, and optimize the user experience on different devices. 

Many of these plugins require an annual subscription to continue to use.  Depending on your website needs, there may be several Plugin subscriptions needed to keep your website running smoothly. 

If you utilize hosting from me, these are included in the hosting price.

Basically, I take care of the website, so you can focus more on your business.
