Celebrating Ten Years of Website Solutions

Many of my Facebook friends have taken the “Ten-Year Challenge” where they post a picture of themselves from ten years ago alongside a current picture. Well, I have a different kind of “Ten-Year Challenge” and it works to your organization’s advantage!

I have been developing website solutions for Ten Years now. Admittedly, the look of my own website hasn’t been updated (much) in those ten years. That will change soon as I update the theme and layout to be more modern and responsive.

So let me ask: When was the last time you updated your website? Have you ever updated your website? How well and how often is your website maintained?

My clients receive software updates to their WordPress websites as often as several times a day. This protects them against bugs and vulnerabilities. Updates need to be installed as often as possible because no one wants their website hacked to redirect their visitors to someone else’s website or to display nefarious content uploaded by someone else!

So here’s my “Ten-Year Challenge”. It’s very simple: For a limited time, take advantage of my company’s Ten Year Anniversary Celebration with a special 10% discount on my services.

What services do I offer? That’s a GREAT QUESTION!

I don’t sell websites. I offer affordable, custom website solutions for small organizations like churches, non-profits, and small businesses. I use the most popular Content Management System, WordPress, which powers almost one-third of the websites on the Internet.

This means that I don’t just create a WordPress website and hand it off to my clients, wishing them “good luck” as they go their merry way to try to figure out how to manage their website on their own. I want my clients to know that their website is actively monitored, backed up and protected from hackers. That makes for great peace-of-mind!

Your website is one of the first impressions your prospects have of your organization. Don’t gamble with your organization’s website!

Contact me for a free website evaluation! Let me take a look and make suggestions for updating and maintaining your WordPress website. And take advantage of this limited-time “Ten-Year Challenge” at a 10% discount!

How Much is a Website?

A snicker crept across the auditorium as a room full of website developers awaited a panelist’s answer when asked this question last weekend at WordCampDFW.

Her response? “How much is a house in Dallas? That all depends on what size house you want and the neighborhood you want to live in!”

Website developers are often asked the question. And many of us hesitate to give a cut-and-dry answer. Because it depends.

Do you want a website that is basically a business card that includes your logo, color scheme, and a way to contact you?

Or do you want a website that helps you establish and maintain a connection between your organization and a website visitor? Do you want to include a slideshow of a recent event? Do you want your website visitors to complete a survey? Do you want to sell something on your website? Do you want to give something away? If you’re a church, do you want to provide audio or video your pastor’s recent sermons on your website?

The answer to how much a website costs has everything to do with what you want to accomplish with your website. That’s why it’s difficult to get a straight answer to a vague question — from a quality website developer.

That’s why we ask questions. We don’t want to merely sell you a website. We want to help you establish and maintain a connection with people.

 

 

We Don’t Use Flash

I tried to attend a webinar a few minutes ago. Unfortunately, the webinar required Adobe Flash. My current computer has never had Flash installed on it. And I will not install it. Hence, I was unable to watch the webinar I was looking forward to.

Flash is old. Flash is not secure. Flash will be abandoned by Adobe soon in favor of current standards.

Now, if Adobe is abandoning its own product, why would any website developer still use it? I suspect it’s because either the developers don’t want to abandon a platform they know well; maybe they’re too lazy to learn newer things. Or perhaps the people who are paying them don’t know any better.

We know better. We care about security. And we care about the security of our clients and the people who visit their websites.

We don’t use Flash.
