Being a Custom WordPress Web Designer is a constantly evolving profession. When working on new website builds, no two websites are alike, and they really shouldn’t be. Different professions, products, and services are just part of what makes websites different from each other. We find that even if we are building websites for the same industry, the owners will want different functionality, and design aesthetics as well.
New Website Builds
This can oftentimes cause a lot of challenging and sometimes new hoops for a web designer to jump through. When it comes to new functionality there are so many aspects to take into consideration. Plugins, forms, ADA compliance, eCommerce, memberships, events, being mobile-friendly, etc. There are a number of new challenges to face with each new design.
As a client, knowing this is important because it’s not just pushing some buttons and changing colors to make a new website. Much of the information on a website is built with shortcodes, PHP, HTML, and CSS that tell the website what to do. Now, this is typically more on the development side, but we have spent a lot of time building hand-coded websites which means we understand more than just the basics of the behind-the-scenes of a website.
What We Use
At Emerse Design, we build using Beaver Builder. It’s a tool that is fully customizable but more user-friendly to us and our clients. Once a website is complete and live on our hosting, we do a training video specific to your website. We will show you and your employees how to keep your website updated and filled with new content. You can easily post blogs, photos, and other content to your website without needing to reach out to us.
On the other hand, if you don’t have time or the desire to learn these functions, we also offer monthly maintenance plans so you can get your updates done as needed. Contact us for maintenance and update plans that leave you more time to work on your business.
