Is Your WordPress Website Easy to Manage?

wordpress web design easy to manage

Last week, someone told me about their new website that was created by another web design company.

They mentioned that the process was relatively painless, but the end result wasn’t quite what they expected. They thought since the website was being built on WordPress, that it was going to be easy to change the text and images on their brand new website. After all, isn’t that what a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress is supposed to do?

The answer is yes. It’s supposed to be easy to change text and images on a WordPress website, but that isn’t always the case. A lot of web design companies make this claim, but as you’ll see in a moment, that’s not always the case.

Bad Example

When your brand new website is complete and ready for you to edit content, how thrilled would you be if you saw this looking back at you?

Not only is it difficult to understand for a non-programmer, but you’re bound to break your website the first time you update it.

Good Example

Isn’t that easier?

No complicated code, simple text.

That’s how we develop all of our custom WordPress websites.

If I could offer one word of advice when looking for a WordPress website designer:

Ask for screenshots of WordPress websites that they’ve developed, specifically the editor as I’ve shown you here.

Working with Shawn was and continues to be great. As a new business with a new website in place, Shawn was able connect some missing items and fine tune what I had already developed. He went the extra mile and put together video clips for me walking me through the process on how to utilize what he put together. It’s really brilliant and so helpful. I can access these short how to’s anytime I need a refresher.

Another great thing about Shawn is that he always responds to an email that day or the very next and works in such a timely and efficient manner. He’s definitely proven to be a great problem solver and is there to help with anything big or small.

I highly recommend Graticle Design without hesitation!

We recently hired Graticle to design our new website, which is optimized for content marketing. Shawn not only is a terrific digital design talent, he also has a wealth of knowledge about how to visually and verbally guide site visitors through a sales funnel. He carefully planned every design element to deliver a powerful call to action, and helped us edit our content to avoid leading users in the wrong direction. Shawn also is one of the most efficient, pleasant and professional designers we’ve ever worked with. He delivered everything in an orderly way, communicated frequently throughout the process, and rapidly adopted our project management system. He delivered great work on time and on budget. Graticle is truly one of the best web companies we’ve ever worked with. Highly recommended.
