Let’s say you live here in Wales, and you are about to start a brand-new business venture, exciting times for any entrepreneur!
Yet, with that said, your mind is simply buzzing with a million and one things that you need to sort out prior to your company starting trading.
For example, you want to set-up a limited company, you need to buy stock, you need staff and you need a business premises. So, there’s simply a lot to do!
For the vast majority of businesses, that are setting up in a wonderful city of Cardiff, you will also need a brand new company website and probably some help your businesses digital marketing as well.
So, you might be busy on Google right now looking for “web developers in the city of Cardiff”?
Yet, with that said, you’re not too worried about finding a local web designer, because you know there are many in Cardiff, but a few of them come back with the same question, and that is which CMS do you want the website built using?
The web developers might have provided you with a few options, yet “WordPress” keeps coming up despite you contacting say three different web designs in Wales.
This is when you start to look rather perplexed, as you just want a well-designed website built, which reflects what your company can offer, you simply don’t know what a content management system (CMS) or which one to opt for.
So, when your inbox starts to get filled with questions like:
-Which CMS option do you want?
-Do you require a brochure website?
-Do you want an e-commerce website?
– Do you want a WordPress site that has a responsive mobile design?
-Do you want a WordPress site with dedicated WordPress hosting?
So, many questions, these all may have you rather confused.
It’s only after a bit of research with a nice cup of sweet tea, that you see that WordPress is used all across the world by various businesses, and it’s one of the most popular CMS options. It’s used for E-commerce websites, that sell thousands of products, through to brochure websites, for say a lawyer.
We are an agency, which builds real high-quality WordPress websites, we are now going to describe why so many businesses both large and small opt for this CMS.
E-commerce and brochure websites
It’s worth bearing this in mind, both e-commerce, that’s websites that sell products online, and both brochure websites can be built using the WordPress CMS platform.
A lot of people find the WP Dashboard a piece of cake to use
Now, there are some companies which offer to build websites which are simply as cheap as chips, with that said, if you don’t know much at all about web design, well this might seem tempting.
However, we would urge you to do your research on which ever CMS you opt for, often it’s better to go with a CMS option that’s proven, like WordPress, that’s because it has a Dashboard which is what many business owners find easy to use. However, every business is different, so what’s needed is a discussion with a respected web design agency, to talk through what you want the new website to do, and to get their opinion on which CMS would best suit your business.
The WordPress Dashboard
Okay, so it goes without saying, that not every business owner here in Wales will have somebody within the company that understands coding. That’s to say, a small business, say that’s in Cardiff Bay, that wants to add a new blog post, might not have the coding knowledge to make say some text bold, or even know how to code, so spaces are left between the paragraphs.
So, this means, often these companies, here in Cardiff, hire our web developers, to build a brilliant well-designed website, yet to also provide WordPress training, so that we can train say an employee on how to add a blog post, how to keep the plugins updated, and how to make a back-up.
Therefore, often a Welsh business doesn’t want to learn coding, like PHP, they may want to make a simple change, such as adding a blog post.
If you simply want to add say a blog post, or to makes a change to the address on the contact us page yourself, you might want to think about having a WordPress website built, because it has an inbuilt WP editor, which allows certain edits to be made without any coding knowledge.
So, why pay a Cardiff website developer to say change the address in the footer of your website, or on the “contact us” page, when we can build a rather brilliant WordPress website for your company, we can then offer intensive training, at an additional cost, so you can learn how to make simple changes, such as adding a new company news post.
You might be thinking well, does having a WordPress website mean I won’t need a web developer?
Well, for some companies, the simple answer is no, that’s because the more complex changes often will still need a web design company, like Walsh in Cardiff, Wales,
So, for example for a redesign of your companies website, where coding knowledge is needed, to redesign say the homepage, and other pages, youll need a front end designer, and if complex changes are needed you will also need a web developer to say build an e-commerce website.
So, for example, if your planning on selling a load of products online, then you might wish to hire a web developer, as it can be a lot of work.
