WordPress Web Design services that will transform your online presence, with engaging and user-friendly design.

WordPress Web Design

WordPress Web Design

WordPress Web design involves using the Content Management System WordPress to create a completely customised website.

Using WordPress web design services allows you to:

  • Have a completely unique website design brought to life online
  • Make sure your Branding is used in the best possible way and doesn’t get shoved into a standard website template
  • Implement any functionality you need with the plugins that WordPress provides

My WordPress web design process includes the following steps:

  1. Domain & hosting setup
  2. Gathering content
  3. Initial design
  4. Design feedback
  5. Develop approved design
  6. Site launch

WordPress allows you to have a website that is completely unique. You don’t want to invest in a website and have it end up looking like everyone else’s.

A website is an important investment for your business. You want to work with a designer who will create a custom design.

When WordPress is used correctly, there is no need to have a bland and dated design. Bringing a completely custom design to life online is easily done (for a WordPress expert anyway👩‍💻).

WordPress tends to have a reputation for being difficult to use, but once you have an experienced and creative Web Designer on your side, you will be well on your way to standing out online.

“I’m more than pleased with the transformation of my website and it is something I’m proud to share now.”

“Highly recommended! Amy transformed my website and branding. She was so easy to work with and kept everything on track. Amy quickly understood the kind of website I wanted to put out there and perfectly captured my brand feelings, and values. I’m more than pleased with the transformation and it is something I’m proud to share now. Don’t hesitate, book her if you want someone to bring your vision to reality!

WordPress Frequently Asked Question

“What is WordPress? How does it work?”

WordPress is a free Content Management System for self-hosted websites. So it is where your website is developed and managed.

WordPress works on a system of themes and plugins. Themes provide the tools to control how your website looks. Plugins provide different functions for your site. For example, if you want customers to be able to book an appointment with you, you will use an appropriate booking plugin. Another example is if you want to integrate your email marketing into your website so people can sign up to your mailing list, you will use the appropriate plugin to do so.

Most of the functions that you need will be available for free on WordPress. But sometimes if you need a more complex function, that might only be available in WordPress through a premium plugin. Through our consultation process, I will let you know if a function you require will require a premium plugin which will be charged at an annual fee.

Work with a WordPress Web Designer who will show your business in the best light.

Find out about my WordPress Web Design process…

Domain & hosting setup

First things first, you will need to buy your domain name and your website hosting. Buying your own domain name and hosting ensures that you are the owner of your website and you are in control of it.

Domain name is the address of your website that people type in the browser URL bar to visit your website. You buy a domain from a hosting service for an annual fee.

Website hosting is when a hosting company allocates space for your website on a server. It’s where your website lives on the internet. You buy hosting from a hosting service for an annual fee.

I’ll help you buy and set up your domain and hosting correctly so your website performs to the highest level. Website hosting is a huge factor in things like website speed, so choosing the correct host for your website is so important.

Gathering Content

Since we will have had a consultation call to start the project, I will know what your goals are for your website and what kind of content will best support these goals. So once your domain name and hosting is set up, I will ask for initial content for the site. What I will need includes written content about you and your business, photographs that you want to feature on the site, products/services information and relevant business information (contact details, opening hours, shipping information and costs etc.)

I provide content prompts for my client for their written content, so you won’t be at a loss at what to say. Everything is broken down into small paragraphs so you know what written content your website needs and it won’t be an overwhelming task.

The more content I get from a client at the start of a project the better as I’ll be able to design with the exact content in mind. I can use placeholder content in my initial design if need be, but like I said the more final content I receive at the start of a project the better.

Inital Design

With your brand guidelines, written, visual and business content and the functions that your sites needs to have in mind, I will begin to design your website. I will design a first draft of your whole site so you can get familiar with how your whole site will look.

Once this first draft is ready, we’ll have a Zoom call where I’ll walk through the design so you can understand it and we can talk it through.

Design Feedback

Once I get your feedback from the first design presentation, I’ll implement it into the next design and get that ready to present to you.

We’ll have one more design presentation where you can give one more round of feedback to implement into the final website design.

Develop approved design

When these two rounds of feedback have been received and implemented, the final website design will be ready for your approval. Once the design is approved, I can begin to develop this site.

I develop my websites on WordPress. WordPress is a great platform and is very popular for websites in Ireland and around the world. WordPress is free to install on your website hosting. You will only need to pay if you need a function that is only possible on WordPress through a premium plugin. Through our consultation process I will let you know if a function you require will require a premium plugin which will be charged at an annual fee.

Once the site is fully developed we will have one last call so you can have look at the site actually functioning on the internet. You can bring up any last questions you might have before we launch your website.

Site launch!

Once the final functionality tests are done, your wonderful website is ready to launch!

I’ll give you log in details and video tutorials of how to update certain areas of your website so you are in control of it. Some people think WordPress is difficult to navigate, but I make sure all my clients can easily make updates to their site.

WordPress Frequently Asked Question

“Does WordPress work for E-commerce sites?”

Yes. In fact, WordPress is one of the most popular Content Management System for E-commerce websites.

WooCommerce is the built in E-commerce function within in WordPress, that provides all the basic things you’ll need to set up you online shop. Again, if you require a more complex function you might need to use a premium plugin which will be charged at an annual fee.

Once you have a Web Designer you trust setting everything up for you, you can have a flourishing E-commerce shop that is uniquely designed for your business.
