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.

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.

I worked with Shawn on my company’s website and he was very helpful and generous with his knowledge and time. He was responsive when I had issues or questions. The input he provided on concepts and trends that make some sites better or more visible than others was great as well. I would feel good referring Graticle to others and was pleased with the services they provided to us.

Shawn, was the second designer I hired and the experience with him was like night and day. Shawn listens and produces. Such as easy process. He is highly organized, does what he says, keeps you informed of the process through an easy app -Base camp, he creates reasonable deadlines and adheres to them. Honestly can’t say enough…oh and I LOVE my logo!
