What is WordPress and why is it the right choice?
WordPress is an online, open source website creation tool. But in simple terms, it’s probably the easiest and most powerful blogging and website content management system (or CMS) out there. WordPress is used by over 25% of the websites on the internet according to statistics available in August 2016. The number of sites running WordPress is a little tough to nail down but it’s in the tens of millions. WordPress is used by some of the world’s biggest publishers and online retailers and is absolutely suitable for your website.

How does my website go from idea to launch?
Listen & Discuss
We’ll take time to discover your needs and goals. Who is your target customer? What should your website say about you and your business? Once those points are understood we’ll discuss how to bring your goals to your site.
What do you want to say on your website? What is your messaging? What imagery would you best represents you? How should visitors interact with your site and content? Putting all of these points in place allow us to move to the next step.
Design & Build
Time to get down to bringing your WordPress Website Design to life! We’ll design and build your Home page, internal pages and other page layouts. Using current design trends your pages will take shape in a way that gets your message to your site visitors. User Experience will be optimized because how people navigate your site can mean the difference between a visitor contacting you or going to your competition.
Refine & Test
After initial design is done we’ll review pages together and discuss revisions. With revisions made SherpaWeb will test your site across browsers and devices to ensure proper function and appearance.
Your new site is moved to your hosting account and goes live. SherpaWeb will submit your site to the search engines for indexing. If search engine optimization is part of the plan (and it should be!) your site pages will be optimized so that your site tells the search engines what they need to know.
Maintenance & Support aren’t the most flashy part of your site but may well be the most important. Sites can & do crash. Sites can & do get hacked. Site components are continuously updated by developers and your site needs to stay up to date. You’ll likely want to update content on your site. SherpaWeb will develop a plan that keeps your site up & running, backed up, and safe. We’ll also make sure that maintenance & support doesn’t break your budget.
