What I Do
I have designed and built websites with HTML, Drupal and Joomla in the past, but now I design exclusively with WordPress, as it is a user-friendly CMS used by 60 million websites worldwide.
As all my web designs are responsive, which means that they provide an excellent user experience when viewed on a large screen, a tablet or a smartphone, therefore you can be confident that you will get a modern design.

He or she will also choose the plugins for functionality and compatibility. Some server side technologies are vital in the functionality of websites, such as MySQL databases and CRON jobs.
Web development is the nuts and bolts side of the business. The designer has a vision of how the site will look, and the developer will make the pieces fit together and function.
"WordPress (WordPress.org) is a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL that is usually used with the MySQL database servers. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system, referred to inside WordPress as Themes..." Wikipedia
For the website to be successful, it needs to be not only professionally and aesthetically designed, but also flexible, scalable, robust and secure.
This is why I use WordPress as my CMS of choice. Over 77 million websites around the world use WordPress, which is over 26% worldwide.
WordPress is an open source platform which designers love because it boasts a huge amount of resources, themes and plug-ins, which provide style and functionality at an affordable price. There are also premium themes and plug-ins available for specific needs.
As these resources are available to everyone, one might think that a website will not be unique. This, however, is not the case has a professional web designer will be able to produce a totally unique website either by using existing themes of creating one from scratch.
Examples of WordPress plug-ins include social media sharing, slideshows, SEO, galleries and hundreds of others.
A web developer is responsible for designing, coding and modifying websites, from the layout to the functionality with reference to the specific client's requirements. The end goal is to create a visually appealing site that feature user-friendly design and clear navigation.
- As a web developer, I have a 1 to 1 consultation for every customer to collect all requirements.
- I develop the website based on the final agreed and wire framing.
- I develop the website on a test server allowing the client access to view and test.
- I work with the client to ensure the site is as required down to the finest detail.
- On approval we upload your website your domain and hosting.
- I provide full training on how to use your website.
E-commerce is the selling products and services online.
The advantages of e-commerce are:
- Low overheads compared to running a bricks and mortar store.
- Online stores can be open 24 hours a day, 365 is the year, and customers can buy or browse from different countries and different types time zones.
- E-commerce stores can be as simple as selling one product or service or an extensive catalogue of goods.
- Customers can buy online with your credit cards safely and securely.
There are many WordPress plug-ins which help make e-commerce store a possibility. WooCommerce and MarketPress are just two of the e-commerce plug-ins which I have used. Customers can pay securely through PayPal or pay by credit card through Stripe.
