Build A WordPress Site

Whether you have a large business, small startup or it's just a hobbie, I can build a WordPress site for you.

Is WordPress For Me?

WordPress is for anyone looking to create a website. It is is cost-effective, user-friendly, and offers scalability as your business grows whether it's a personal blog, a business website, an online store, or a community platform. Its flexibility and ease of use make it a good choice for individuals and organizations of all sizes.

Experienced. Clear & Concise. Afforable.

There is a lot involved when building a WordPress website - communication, planning, designing, coding, optimisation. As a WordPress developer for over 15 years I'm experienced in building a complete WordPress site that other freelancers or agency staff aren't. Because you're dealing with just one person this keeps things simple and allows me to explain everything concisely and clearly. It also allows me to keep costs down while not comprising on quality. Check out my portfolio for examples of websites I have designed and developed over the years.

Bespoke WordPress Themes

I build bespoke WordPress themes. That means I create your theme from scratch to meet your specific needs. I don't purchase off-the-shelf themes, make a few adjustments and charge you a fortune. You'll be surprised how many developers do that.

An off-the-shelf theme is going to contain lots of unwanted code and features. All this extra stuff can be make it difficult to manage and will add a lot of bloat to the site affecting both your loading times and SEO performance.

A bespoke theme will only include exactly what you need. Features are built specifically for you. Your website design will be tailored specifically to your brand identity, ensuring uniqueness and differentiation from competitors.

To Page Build or Not To Page Build?

I can build a bespoke WordPress site with or without a page builder. It's entirely up to you. If you're not sure what you want, this is something we can discuss during the planning stages of development.

So what is a page builder? It's basically a plugin that allows users to create and customize website pages without needing to write any code. Well known page builders include Elementor, WPBakery Page Builder, Divi Builder and Beaver Builder. It typically offers a user-friendly interface with drag-and-drop functionality, pre-designed templates, and a variety of content modules (such as columns, text, images, videos, buttons, etc.) that users can easily add and arrange on their pages.

This is a good choice for clients who want the ability to create their own custom page layouts without touching any code.

While page builders offer many benefits, they also come with some disadvantages. Some page builders can add bloat to your website, increasing its load time and affecting performance. Page builders also use their own custom shortcodes or code, making it difficult to switch to a different tool in the future. This can lock you into using a specific page builder long-term.
