WordPress Web Design

Amity Digital has been designing WordPress websites since the platform’s introduction in 2003. We were there when WordPress was a wiggly bit of internet larva, presenting itself as a rather sophisticated blog before transforming, over time, into the open source, customizable website architecture it is today.

Looking for a website design firm with WordPress experience? Our designers have been knee-deep in this evolving software for 17 years, and we’re always up to date on the latest WordPress trends, functions, plugins, and security features.

If you’re in need of a custom website with a lot of flexibility – one that can grow and adapt to the needs of your business – contact us today. Fill in the necessary information, and we’ll reach out with the WordPress services that make the most sense for your business.

What Is WordPress?

Dividing Image

WordPress is a powerful content management system (CMS) that allows us to build and design custom websites. The easy-to-use backend interface, with a simple visual editor, allows users to add, update, and edit content without writing or altering code. Because of this user-friendliness, you can, if you’re so inclined, make changes to website content without needing an experienced web designer.

When websites initially formed from the primordial internet ooze, each website page existed as a separate HTML page in a file folder. If you had to update a link or piece of content existing across all web pages, you would literally have to make those updates to every individual page. A CMS lets you make the change once, which is reflected instantaneously across the entire website.

No matter what stage your business is in, we offer tailored web services and strategies to support your short-term goals and long-term vision. Whether it’s a face-lift, a simple update, or a complete from-the-ground-up web design, we can help. Our approach is different than most — we want to be your partner, and our partnership starts with building a website that actually grows your business.

“A CM-What? Please Elaborate.”

A CMS stands for content management system. And what does a content management system do? Well, to put it simply: It manages content. See? Simple. A CMS is piece of software that allows you to mange the content of your website without having to know code. It lets you make changes to individual elements, or enact universal edits across the entire website from a central location.

Why Do We Recommend WordPress Websites?

Because they’re awesome? Because they fulfill so many needs in the realms of function, design, and audience visibility? Because they’re incredibly user-friendly? Because changes are easy to make, and you don’t have to code, like, ever?

This robust platform allows us to create unique, custom websites for businesses, organizations, and professionals. And these websites not only look great with seamless functionality, they allow for in-depth search engine optimization (SEO). Is SEO important? Well, ask yourself this: “Do I want people to find my website?” What was your answer? Was it “Yes?” Good, now you know why SEO is important.

Still not convinced? Here’s a list highlighting the benefits of WordPress:

Responsive WordPress Design:

Our WordPress websites are responsive, meaning they size themselves according to the device being used. When someone views a website on a mobile device (smartphone, tablet, etc.), the content is easy to read, the images are large, clear, and recognizable, and navigation is immediately visible and useable without encroaching on nearby content space.

Google’s “Mobile-First” policy means Google ranks a website based on its mobile presentation. It used to make this determination based on a website’s desktop version; however, a larger percentage of users utilize hand-held devices to search online, so Google gives more importance to mobile websites.

Do you have to pinch and resize your mobile website in order to actually see it? If so, your website isn’t responsive, and therefore, not preferred by Google’s search algorithm (you’ll be less likely to appear for people searching online for your specific services).

Customizable:

Our custom WordPress sites are created to meet the unique needs – and spread the unique messages – of any and all businesses, organizations, and professionals.

A WordPress website designed by Amity Digital starts by answering a few basic questions to help define the distinctive purpose of your site:

“What is your website for?”

“What do you want it to do?”

“Who do you want to attract to your website?”

“What are your strengths as a business?”

“What is the company’s branding? What are the recurring colors, shapes, images, and themes prevalent throughout all forms of media?”

“What is the brand statement you’re trying to make?”

There are quite a few more, but we use questions like these to determine how best to present your company and products/services in the best possible light.

These questions also determine the unique visual appearance and functionality of your website, making it a personal, professional, and knowledgeable representation of your business.

Powerful Plugins:

A WordPress plugin is a bit of adaptable software allowing for specific functions on a website. With a plugin, we can add customizable forms, visual sliders, and other eye-catching elements to entice website visitors.

There are also plugins that improve SEO (see below), speed up your site, improve mobile optimization, recommend linking structure, improve security, and back up vital data.

Currently, there are over 50,000 plugins available for WordPress. The sheer amount of available, adaptable software allows us to create custom websites that interact with customers as they journey across every page of your website.

Conscious of SEO (Search Engine Optimization):

A lot of famous, do-it-yourself website builders like WIX, Hibu, and Squarespace allow you to build decent-looking websites, but they don’t allow for deeper search engine optimization. This means a good-looking website built on these platforms can’t be found or appreciated.

WordPress websites feature SEO-friendly architecture allowing for the direct input of key SEO information. This architecture is specifically configured to make it easier for Google to crawl, and therefore, rank and define your website.
WordPress also features thorough SEO plugins, allowing us to properly optimize the backend of each and every page, and every bit of content existing on each and every website page.

eCommerce Functionality:

Want to sell your products or services online? WordPress allows you to sell products and services directly to customers with its famous WooCommerce plugin.

The WooCommerce software allows you create and edit product pages, product categories, and product checkout pages (pages that link with various methods of payment for smooth, secure, and intuitive online transactions).

WooCommerce also features an easy-to-use backend that creates, organizes, and prints incoming orders.

Are you a service dependent on appointments? WooCommerce allows you to reserve and pay for specific blocks of time.

Are you a fitness instructor who wants to provide online training to paying members only? WooCommerce allows paying members to access sections of a website that are normally inaccessible. Take payment, grant access, and let your members utilize the content of those pages (e.g., a daily workout or meal plan) as long as they continue membership.

They’re Secure:

WordPress core, the source files that control basic WordPress functionality, is secure. It’s maintained by a word-class security team who stays abreast of the latest viruses and malware by releasing a steady stream of security updates.

By staying on top of the updates, including updating to the latest version, and hosting your website with a secure provider (like us), we keep our WordPress websites clear of any unauthorized entry.
