Web Development Consultant

Many small business owners contact me because they need a website, but have no idea of what to do beyond this. As a website consultant I provide recommendations for the best way to build your website within your budget. I will walk you through the development process, providing you with a website proposal that will meet your website needs. If you hire me for web development services, I  continue to provide web consulting throughout the website development process.

WordPress Consultant

WordPress development servicesWhy hire me for WordPress consulting services? I have worked on hundreds of WordPress websites since 2002 . This level of experience is the difference between using a DIY website builder and having a professional website to move your business forward.

WordPress consulting services to help you plan to  build a new website or address issues on an existing WordPress website are available.  On top of consulting, I also provide WordPress development, theme customization and WordPress maintenance services too .

There is mixed information on the Internet about WordPress being the best way to build a website and the worst way. I will say I have seen plenty of awful WordPress websites out there that run slow and are full of security issues.

That’s not WordPress’ fault. It’s due to ignorance and neglect on your part (or your WordPress developer). I run all of my personal websites on WordPress and have never been hacked. You need quality hosting and experience to keep it running fast and secure.

In terms of speed, running WordPress (or any other website for that matter) on a quality host is a must. Optimizing your website for it to run faster is also needed. (You can see my WordPress speed test results here.)

Web Development Consulting

Website Consulting

Some web developers are just coders. You tell them what you need, they code it, deliver it, done.  Often, people that contact me do not know what they need beyond “I need a website”.  I provide web development consulting services to “hold your hand” through the web development process.

In the beginning I  answer any questions you have about the process of how to create a website, using custom, open source or commercial software options and a ballpark budget you should expect to spend to build your website. During the web development phase, I will make suggestions and recommendations for the best way to address issues that come up.
