Features in Detail
Our service is about providing the tech, design and support services so you can concentrate on your content. That means you have access to all the free plugins that WordPress offers and an excellent suite of tools as standard. You’re also free to add as many pages as you like, customising your layouts as you see fit.
Built on WordPress, the world’s most popular website creation platform, using some of the world’s best themes. WordPress is more flexible and powerful than any DIY web builder.
We can refresh your site’s design every 3 years free of charge to keep things fresh for you and your customers. Design can move quickly on the web. Being able to change your design to keep up to date ensures you’re on the cutting edge.
Our support is friendly, helpful and human. We’re on hand to help you 7 days a week. We use clever forms to help you tell us what you need so there’s no confusion. We can then respond quickly and efficiently to get things running as they should. We also have a wealth of information in our knowledge base to help you get the most from your site.
If there’s some functionality you need, we can source it and install it for you, often free of charge. You’ll have access to the WordPress depository of free plugins, and we can add any commercial plugins for you if you purchase them. In many cases, we can install plugins free of charge. We may charge a small set-up fee for some plugins. Not sure which plugin you need? We can find one for you.
We’ll purchase and renew a domain name for you. If you want to transfer it away, that’s no problem. Get a .co.uk or equivalent domain name for Personal and Small Business packages, or any Top Level Domain (such as .com or .org) domain on our Medium business package. We’ll take care of DNS and renewal.
Start Selling (Option)
We can provide a shopping cart and get you started selling online quickly and easily with our Medium Business package. We use WooCommerce and Stripe or PayPal to get you started with eCommerce. An SSL certificate can be installed to make your shopping cart secure.
Our designs will adapt perfectly to mobile and tablet screens. In fact, they’ll adjust to any browser width and use mobile menus where necessary. More people actually use mobile devices to browse than desktop computers now, so it makes sense to ensure your site is mobile friendly.
Options include adding ecommerce, banner slide design, payment gateway integration, photography sessions, WordPress group training, social media management, additional forms, or additional domains.
Embed a map of your location into your website. We’ll also set you up with Google’s ‘My Business’.
Your site will be optimised for search engine indexing. We include software to help you optimise every page of your site. Whilst we’re not an SEO company, we’ll do our best to ensure your site is easily indexed by Google and other search engines. You’ll also be able to tweak these settings for every page yourself.
Email Set Up
We’ll get you set up with a new or existing Gmail account linked with email forwarders. In our experience, this is one of the best ways to manage email for business as hosting email accounts are often nowhere near as flexible.
Send your blog posts straight to Facebook and Twitter. Help customers engage with you more easily. Place a Facebook Like Box on your site to encourage page likes, or show your feed. Show a Twitter feed. Allow users to share and like posts with a variety of social media platforms.
Unlimited Pages & Posts (multi-page sites)
We don’t place any limitations on the number of pages or blog posts you can have. Knock yourself out!
An essential way to bring more traffic to your site and get ranked higher in search engines is to keep an up to date blog. This is a great way to encourage repeat visits to your site and to provide quality content for your potential customers.
Small and Medium Business package users benefit from (up to 8) professionally designed pages. This ensures your site looks unique, professional, and gets your site live more quickly.
The amazing themes we use make changing your page layouts really easy. You can make changes to your site visually whilst browsing your pages.
Fast and reliable hosting on our servers is coupled with great security and attentive support. Our system monitors your site’s uptime to ensure any errors are identified and remedied swiftly. We make regular backups of your data too.
All packages have a great contact form delivering vital customer communication to your email. Small and Medium Business packages feature higher complexity forms that can be tailored to your requirements.
Newsletter and Email Lists
Integrate Aweber or Mailchimp with your site to create a seamless newsletter or email list experience for your users. This is still a vital tool to help you connect with your customers.
We’ve listed the main features of our service here, but there are many more features that WordPress and our Themes provide that are too numerous to list. If you need to check if we can provide a particular item of functionality, please contact us – we’ll be happy to help.
